The end

I’ve re-written this post a dozen times and haven’t been able to accurately put my thoughts into words (yet). But here goes another shot. I am leaving the blogosphere and vlogosphere, because my husband and I want to have a family. I [...]

COMIC: The「red shiso」Fiasco

COMIC: Snacking problems

Anyone else? I am awful about binge-eating snacks, mostly because I have poor impulse control. Since becoming “an adult” I eat much more healthy (a nice pro that comes from cooking all your own food) and snack less… but then [...]
