COLLEGE, LIFE

I Want To Do Something Meaningful

I try to do good things every day. Some days more than others, but regardless, doing something meaningful has been on my mind for months, maybe even years. When I was younger I felt like I had to go to college, which I am glad I did and very thankful that I was able to, but now that I am nearing graduation, I am not sure what I truly want to do next.

Working and having a full-time job will be great. I do like working and learning so it sounds great. Thinking of living in a busy city with so many opportunities sounds great, but it also sounds kind of selfish. What I really want is to help people, and I am not really sure how sitting at a desk, or in meetings will really do that.

Lately I have been hearing songs, reading articles, or even watching movies that really resonate with me. These things have only shown me what I really care about, which is doing something good for the world, other people, etc. I can’t stand the thought of not doing something that will really help others.

I used to think I just wanted to travel forever, which does sound amazing, but isn’t necessarily feasible for me at the moment. But I am not sure why I let the thought cross my mind that helping others and giving back cannot be my job. Because it definitely could be. All I know right now is I need do something meaningful for the world, whether it is my own venture or through the companies I may work for someday. All I know is I want to do something more meaningful with my life and that can better the lives of others, nature, or the world.

COLLEGE, FOOD

What I Have Been Eating

Food, y’all know I love food. So today I want to share some of my go-to foods that I have been eating!

Rice is one of my absolute favorite foods. I could eat it every day. I have been mixing it with cottage cheese, which is one of my favorite ways to eat it. It is almost like a healthy version of mac n cheese. I also love making sushi bowls. Its a good way to get in some healthy fats, carbs, and veggies.


I eat eggs all the time. I don’t think there is something eggs can’t cure. Anyway, scrambled eggs with rice and avocado, or just on some toast are my favorite ways to have them.


Toast is literally my go-to breakfast and sometimes dinner. I eat it with avocado, salt, and pepper, or with eggs. I have rediscovered my childhood favorite, peanut butter toast, but also like to put burrata cheese on it.


Edamame and asparagus are my favorite way to have veggies. Edamame is so delicious and pretty much acts as an entire meal for me sometimes. Asparagus makes a great side dish either in the morning with breakfast or with my dinner.


Finally, I have been drinking so much kombucha. I absolutely love kombucha. I like to have it every morning to get my day started. It gives me energy and just tastes good to me.


As for eating out, I always get grilled cheese, sushi, or late night pizza. I try not to get this too often, but sometimes you really need sushi or Steak ‘n Shake.
