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

What made me happy, June 5, 2023

Status report: Insomnia and female problems, made much easier by good friends and the internet.

What made me happy last week:

1. Finding a new snack phase. I go through food phases. Recently, I am all about sushi and dumplings for when we go to restaurants, and that has been fun. Just this past week though, cultural introduction to my new obsession of a local snack made out of the excess from communion wafer production. Really kicks in my tasteless snacking reflex from childhood.

2. Risks that turn out well. In a rare instance of spontaneity, I made a change and trusted other people to take over changing my appearance. So far it’s going okay, just feels different.

3. New projects. This weekend, in a fit of hope, I bought 4 pots of herbs. With my track record with plants, it’s a long shot, but one can dream.
