Everything, Everything

This movie is based on the incredible novel called

“Everything, Everything” by Nicola Yoon. 

Image result for everything, everythingI’m not much of a political writer but I can’t help but notice something. The growth of racism attacks, talks and protests has shaken the country these past couple of months. The couple in the movie are interracial and I’m curious to find out how many people will purchase a ticket. How do people respond to a movie like this at a time like this? 

Personally, I don’t understand all the chaos that is going on. Even though I like being an informed citizen, I find myself looking away.

P.S. I love that Rue (from the Hunger Games): Amandla Stenberg is in this movie.

Honey Sriracha Chicken (Review)

I really enjoyed the Honey Sriracha Chicken. It came out really well. My boyfriend really enjoyed it.T he only thing I would like to add is that if you really want a strong flavor to add a little more of the marinade. Although it wasn’t really spicy, you can always limit the amount of Sriracha you add.

> Next time I’ll take a picture.

Happy Valentine’s Day!Image result for valentine's day gif

There is a lot of people who don’t like Valentine’s Day because they don’t have a partner. But I feel like they are taking this whole thing the wrong way. Valentine’s Day is about LOVE.

 

Don’t you love you siblings? Your friends? Your kids?

I think today is a day where you take a step back…and you appreciate all the great people in your life. So don’t be “pooper “and send a message to those people that mean a lot to you because you never know if they are having a bad day and need some cheering up.

Needing” or “Wanting” something Creates Stress. In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, it talks about how your basic instincts is to satisfy these needs. You life goals would be under “Esteem Needs” because it gives you a “feeling of accomplishment”. It’s something basic human nature strives for.

Maslow’s Hierarchy is an explanation for motivation. Motivation come from a person being “uncomfortable where they are at or when they don’t want to settle where they are”. At least that is my definition. When you don’t settle until you get to the highest position you climb up the ladder of success.
