True life; Food obsession

Yeah sex is good, but have you ever had food?

True life; Food obsession
Alexandra Kroudis

Let me tell you something, ever since I was a little child, guilt free and full of baby fat, I've loved food, and I'm sure I don't stand alone. Some people love sports, some people love art, and then there are people like us who absolutely adore food. If you're like me and you think food is the best thing to have blessed this earth, here are some things I'm sure you can agree with...

As breakfast is the first meal of the day, it is easy to get excited and carried away. Some typical thoughts include: Can I have two breakfasts? Cuz I can't decide between eggs or English muffin or pancakes or French toast or pasta or freshly baked cinnamon buns. Is it too early for breakfast? Like i know its 3am but I'm awake to pee and I totally feel its acceptable to begin planning breakfast, or even better, eating it.

Okay so once breakfast is done, you kind of have nothing more to do than sit around and hope the next meal comes soon enough. How will i distract myself from the time so it goes by faster? Maybe scroll through Pinterest and find some cute little lunch ideas? Sounds good.

*Patiently staring at clock for the next reasonable hour to eat again*

Raise your hands if you either hate social gatherings all together or only love them if your best friend, Food, is invited. Like the Super Bowl is cool and all...i think...cuz there's food there...I mean who doesn't love some good apps while watching sports am i right? (Wondering who is playing and what sport the Super Bowl initials) Most of my text conversations regarding gatherings go as follows:

Me: Ugh I'm dreading recruitment it's so long...Will there be food there?

Friend: I think so?


Live photo of when someone around me asks if anyone would like the rest of their food. Like how long can I hold my breath so I don't scream ME too loud and too soon? We all know I've been eyeing down that plate the entire time they were eating it while at the same time eating my meal...

Honestly, in our world there are so many tragedies, like best regards to all those suffering. Last week, i dropped my freshly baked cookie on the floor and honestly times are hard right now....

When a piece of food falls:

It's super easy to love food, making it super hard to go on a diet. I, personally, always allow myself cheat days. Like you know when its 3 months and two days before christmas? It's the holidays, so obviously you have to allow yourself to indulge a little. Or when you have an exam the next morning, you deserve those 8 donuts. Oh and maybe your mom's great great aunt's uncle's cousin's brother passed away 4 years ago today, you best believe you can have that Taylor ham egg and cheese? It's groundhog day? Order a pizza.

Honestly, I can admit, I am not the SMARTEST cookie in the box. (LOL see what I did there, more food...) But, as hard as math is, one of the hardest problems I seem to come across are those that involve finding a place to eat, deciding on a meal, portion control, and trying to decide what my favorite meal it.

If you have an undeniable love for food like me, almost all of your favorite past times include food in some way....

Another thing i know to be true as i continue my life full of food is the utter frustration when watching TV shows/movies and seeing the plethora of food, almost always gourmet, that is displayed during breakfast or meal times and the only thing the actors grab is a damn blueberry!!! Like are you kidding me? I could kill for that gorgeous display that is out on that countertop. Why you gotta tease me like that??? And on top of that, what bothers me even more is when people in REAL life don't finish a plate full of food. You know how hard it is for me to not reach across the table and pick up all your scraps?? Yeah it's hard as hell.

Overall, any scenario you can think of, add food into it and that's my life. A car accident? Yeah I got into one cuz I was trying to peel a banana while merging onto the highway. Late to the wedding? I had to finish eating brunch. Late to MY wedding? I came across some pigs in a blanket while getting my dress on and got mustard all over it. And before you can ask, yep, I was the girl who hid blueberry Pop-Tarts under her pillow at age ten for a midnight snack, what's it to ya??

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

Wikimedia Commons

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
