Why don’t you subscribe to one of those food box things that are so popular right now? I finally signed up for Hello Fresh so that I can try it out for a few weeks and see if it legitimately fits into my culinary lifestyle. It’ll be good to branch out and cook ingredients I would never bother with otherwise. I mean, I liked a sweet potato for the first time after one showed up. I believe this kind of mindless meal planning is going to be fairly beneficial to diversify my diet and force me to make more than popcorn for dinner.


Even if, from the bottom of your heart, you know you’re never going to finish, why don’t you start a project you’ve long been thinking of? I have spent years plotting out a travel guide to Paris. It used to be a book, but now I think it would be better to be an app, but that doesn’t matter here. I want to make a guide to all of the Metro’s of Paris. I would explore every exit and make note of the best things to see at that spot or the greatest things to eat, or which bakery was best. I think it’d be tremendous. I’ll never do it. Oh well.


Why don’t you give yourself an absurd goal? When I was younger, I decided that I would go to every Alfredo’s restaurant on the planet. I did it. I was proud. I went to Rome and Orlando and New York, and I was smug about it. Now I’ve decided that I need to go to every Waffle House location in Kansas City. Why, you might ask? I have no idea. It’s dumb. But I’m going to do it. You have to have goals, reader, otherwise there’s no point in anything.


Why don’t you plan a day in bed watching televisas on Netflix? On Sunday, I’m really looking froward to lounging in my king-size bed wearing a robe and sipping red wine while I watch Kate del Castillo run away from the government on Ingoberanble. It’s my newest obsession. I can’t wait to watch the entire series. I have never actually binge watched anything, I’m really rather excited to try!


Why don’t you make yourself a vat of jamaica to sip on? In my travels, I have repeatedly come across hibiscus flavors. In Egypt they make karkade and in Mexico City they make jamaica. It’s the same thing, but I’ve never been very successful. I finally mastered it last night. Add two packages of dried hibiscus flowers from your local Mexican grocery store to two liters of water. Bring this to a boil and simmer for ten minutes, then allow it to cool completely. I left mine on the stove overnight. Then, strain out the flowers and pour this concentrate into a glass jar. Add 1/3 of the mix with 1/3 cup of sugar to a pitcher. Fill to the top with cold water and stir. Enjoy.
