Anonymous asked: What could numb flavored things possibly taste like though? Novocain?
its referring to a type of sichuan pepper, which makes your tongue go numb
the first time i had food at a sichuan restaurant i thought i was having an allergic reaction it was terrifying
omg the first time I had sichuan pepper I thought I was dying. By the end of my trip, I was craving the ma-la taste ALL THE TIME. It’s one of my favorites.
I totally caved in and bought an Ipad. God help us all.
My credit card sent an alert because I haven’t purchased anything so expensive in years.
This weekend we’re going to try bringing home one of my aunt’s dogs. She can’t take care of so many because her fiancé is going to move in when they get married and he also has two dogs.
I’m racking up expenses left and right (because of course I’ll be the one paying for the dog) but I’m going to enjoy life while I can!
Oh boy, I’m 24!
It’s been one of the most fun birthdays, and I love that LA, and more specifically the SGV, is home. I had an awesome and surprising celebration with some of my best friends on Friday, awesome sushi dinner with the loveliest boyfriend ever, and got so many nice gifts from my work and the coffee shop downstairs. It’s the community that makes me feel at home. It’s the first year that I’ve really felt like I’ve found a place to put down roots. Funny thing is, I’ve grew up here just waiting and wishing to leave.
"…a library is not just a reference service: it is also a place for the vulnerable. From the elderly gentleman whose only remaining human interaction is with library staff, to the isolated young mother who relishes the support and friendship that grows from a Baby Rhyme Time session, to a slow moving 30-something woman collecting her CDs, libraries are a haven in a world where community services are being ground down to nothing. I’ve always known libraries are vital, but now I understand that their worth cannot be measured in books alone."

I’m so tired.
I keep looking back to the days when nothing phased me and I was so strong. It’s been six years already.
I have to learn that I’m not taking any kind of bs from anyone ever again.
