Being a picky eater is a serious struggle. It's impossible to find somewhere to eat and when you do, you usually get something off the kid's menu. If you're a picky eater like me, or know someone who is, let's relate and see how picky you actually are!

1. Chicken tenders are your favorite food.

2. You're invited to someone else's house and they prepare their meal around your liking and if they don't, you have to pretend that you like it.


3. Anytime a hamburger on the menu has a lot of extra stuff added, you order a plain patty with two buns. And the waitress looks at you like...


4. Potatoes are considered your favorite "vegetable."


5. Your family asks you where you want to go eat because they know you're the hardest to please.


6. It overwhelms you when people put too many toppings on a pizza.


7. No matter your age, you always go for the kid's menu first.


8. When someone tries to get you to try something new...


9. You like your cake plain. What's that white stuff anyway?

.

10. You like a total of 3 types of candy.


11. Everyone trusts your opinion of what's good and what's not.


12. You bring your own lunch with you 99% of the time.


13. If someone asks you to eat with them out, you immediately check the menu online to make sure something is on there that you will eat.


14. You know you can never go wrong with Chick-Fil-A.


Even if you are the pickiest eater you know, that's okay. And if you're the person that has a person who has the pickiest eater in mind right now, don't judge. Just remember, we don't complain about what you eat.

Christmas Of Remembrance Series: My Last Letter

Christmas time is not about the gifts... It is about something far, far more special.

Dear Reader,

Thank you for your time.

This is a series that I have dedicated to those I have loved and lost. It was merely a thought, then an idea, and now a realized creation. Christmas time… all winter really is a hard time for me. It holds this duality in my life of being both my favorite and also my least favorite and difficult time of year. It has been that way for years now.

In a way, this series aids my closure and healing further, and it allows me to tell my story in a way that, to me, is less scary (one of the many great facets of this platform). It was never my intention to write this in order to reach people, or encourage people, or serve as an inspiration to anyone. This was for me and only me. No one else. But, if these pieces of writing do impact someone, somewhere, or make them feel encouraged or inspired in some way or another, or just simply make them feel, then I hope you have enjoyed them. If I can make someone feel, then I guess I have done my job.

The life of an artist is often an uncertain one. The life of a human is a trying one. But life is a journey, and all journeys have their trials. Their tests. Their triumphs and rewards. And they all have their losses. What matters most is what you make of all of it. What lessons you learn. What changes you make. What life you create for yourself. What art you create because of it all. It can be very, very hard. But it can all be glorious at the same time.

At the heart of this series, my words, there is this deep and valuable belief of mine: Christmas (or the Winter Holiday that you may celebrate) is so much more about presents and cooking and shopping and all that other bullshit… it is about family.

The family that is related by blood. The family that surrounds your heart. Your Mom. Your brother. Your dearest friends. The bonds that make life valuable. Worth living. These bonds are soulful bonds, ones that are far more special than any mere trivial object. So… be with them. Forgive. Forget. Heal. Mend what is broken. Reassemble what has been shattered. And stop worrying so much. Laugh together. Cry together. Heal on another. Heal together. And may your new days be better, brighter, and full of love.

Happy Holidays.

Ty
