coming “home” to florida [i’m originally from jericho, ny.
holler!] isn’t something that usually invigorates me, rather it
transforms me into a lethargic octogenarian who has eaten too
many carbs. however, this trip feels different. i’m excited to
see my family [specifically my mom who is not only my unofficial
therapist, but my best friend. and my cousin jenny, who is
getting married tonight and who i know will be reading this post.
andmy dad who is a pain in my ass, but still pretty cool].
anyway, my point is that i feel good for the first time in months
[creative-people-problems] and i’m glad to be back.
so to sustain this oddly-timed resurrection of my mental health,
i’ve decided to start my day with a healthy bowl of banana
oatmeal [rather than grab sub-par, greasy diner food from the
local altacocker hot-spot with my deaf grandma].
to make it, i mushed half an [almost] overripe banana into my
oatmeal & water [1:2 ratio], microwaved on high for 3 minutes,
sprinkled some salt and brown sugar, and poured on some almond
milk for that nutty bite. i feel great with this fresh start to
my morning [or life, for that matter], and it’s about to get even
fresher, because i’m hopping in the pool… seeyaaa!
