The human heart was—and remains—a mystery to me. But I’m learning. I have to. —Anthony Bourdain

What I’m grateful for, week 13/52

1. I got a new workdesk last week as a gift. It was so mindblowing to me, that it’s still sinking in. I’ll write about it in a separate post because I am so flabbergasted by the whole thing.

2. I bought a nixtamalization kit, which is step one of having my own hominy, which is also the key to making myself happy. Posole is one of my favorite comforting things, and it’s really not the same without hominy. If I get this right, I’m going to keep making posole rojo and hopefully attempt posole verde.

3. Midweek catch up with a few friends that also surprised me, like so surprised I think coffee was redundant for my workday. I’m still shaking my head and laughing to myself about it now.

4. Learning new things at work. Work is not perfect, not by a long shot (because what workplace is?), but I am enjoying mostly learning about every cog in the machine. And working with really smart people keeps me on my toes, especially the ones that are funny too.

What are you grateful for?
