Book OP: A Cook’s Tour

With his ashy-white, unruly hair and loud, unrestrained New Jersey accent, Anthony Bourdain is quite a character. He enjoys the frequent use of expletives, heavy consumption of alcohol, and allusions to his former hardcore life of wild sex and crazy narcotics.

Ingredients of My Grandma’s Past

During the summers, when I visit Korea, the first place we go to is my grandmother’s house. This is on my mom’s side of the family as both my dad’s parents passed away before I was even born.

Just Go to Bed

For the past few days, I’ve been going to sleep really late. I’ve probably gotten a total of four hours of sleep in the past two days. I’m not saying this to brag, but rather to bring attention to something that I hadn’t originally given much thought to. Going to sleep late ultimately leads to more stress and affects my eating habits. I end up waking up later than usual and missing breakfast. I end up rushing to get my work done and become more stressed out. My entire day’s schedule gets fucked up. Continue reading “Just Go to Bed”
