My co-worker, Life, was in Singapore last week and— in true Simple Girl form— I asked her to pick up a box of Ladurée macarons for me.
1. I have a job.
Yesterday was my first rice-free day in weeks! I’ve been eating a lot of rice and bad carbs ever since I started working in an office again, but I’m trying not to beat myself up over it.
Two eggs and slices of kesong puti.
There are a few things I enjoy more than— forgive the cliche!!!— taking a walk down memory lane. Whether it be the music we used to listen to (90s music gave us the best pop music, if I may argue!), the books we used to read (The Baby-Sitters Club, Sweet Valley High, Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys), candies we used to save our school money for (Nerds, Nestle Crunch and Baby Ruth bars, Gobstoppers, Cry Baby, Runts), the cartoons we would obsess over (the Tagalized version of Peter Pan, A Dog of Flanders, Sailor Moon, Captain Planet, Denver the Last Dinosaur, Street Sharks, Jem and the Holograms, Daria), the TV shows we were allowed to watch (Perfect Strangers, *Lois & Clark, Buddy and Sol, Friends, Saved by the Bell), and our childhood heroes (the X-Men, Superman, Shaider, Mask Rider Black, the Spice Girls).
