Ask And Ye Shall Receive...
and don't ignore it when you get it.
or "Last Minute Thinking Through My Fingers"
Hello all. Hope you are well. I am trying to get a post in before classes start August 27th. I'm taking a full load and if you add income generation (i.e. a job), possible extracurricular activities, and trying to maintain an active lifestyle on top of that I do not foresee having much free time for blog posts in the next few months.
Note: I think this is about the, no lie, sixth version of this post since I started writing it a week and half ago.
There is someone in my day-to-day life that has had plenty of wake-up calls but has barely altered their lifestyle in light of them. This same person asks me for advice all of the time. I'll offer advice and then the person promptly disregards what I say. I have gotten to the point of wondering why they even bother asking me what I think about anything. It's just a huge fucking waste of both our times. Actually, I think it's just because the person likes the sound of their own voice. It really pisses me off.
I asked. I received. I ignored.
Yet, the thing about wake-up calls is, as time passes, they become easier and easier to ignore. All I can say is that I am doing my best to be proactive and not ignore it.
Vegan Pizza Is Bullshit
I will say this though: I am really sick of all these bullshit labels (any kind of -ism, -ist, and -ian) we put on ourselves. Social media is rife with ideological purity and very often if you don't have the right label or fall in line perfectly with someone else's ideology you're suddenly "terrible" or "garbage". It is by no means unique to "Left" or "Right" culture. I don't care what you're calling yourself. All I care about is if you are a good person? Do you treat others well? Even online?
Beyond the self-labeling, I absolutely cannot stand dogma (in the definition of dogma as a "prescribed doctrine proclaimed as unquestionably true by a particular group") and dietary dogma is beyond annoying.
As far as day-to-day eating goes, I'm fairly convinced that Michael Pollan has it right. It's nice and simple and free from dogma:
- Eat food. [note: Michael means real food, not processed junk.]
- Not too much.
- Mostly plants.
A final word on diet
I'm still very curious about the relationship between diet and health. I intend to put as much Rich Roll, No Meat Athlete, Found My Fitness (with Dr. Rhonda Patrick), Chris Kresser, and Robb Wolf into my ear-holes and eyeballs as I can handle. I'll figure it all out for myself at some point. Ok. I've said what I needed to say. I'm shutting up about diet from here on out.
Basically, what I'm trying to say is, shit gon' get weird around here. You have been warned. 😆
This is all being said with an understanding that blogging has, for the most part, been a dead medium for years. I hope to branch out into different platforms to supplement/compliment anything posted here, but that is still a ways off.
Anywho, I have a ton of things I need to do before tomorrow so I'll end this here.
Peace☮ + Pizza🍕
