‎"When one is thirsty one quenches one's thirst by drinking, not by reading books which treat of this condition." Jean Pierre de Caussade

I am an avid reader, especially of non-fiction, but I must admit that I often feel so frustrated with those, including myself, who are reading for answers... yet seem afraid to put forth the knowledge they acquire that would help resolve the problem. Why do we look for answers but stop there? Why do we not then solve the problem?

Furthermore, why would we even be looking for answers that we already have? If you know that you are thirsty, drink some water. If you know that you need five minutes of complete silence before you start your day turn off  your phone when you wake up.

Yet, here I am reading my 76th book on gratitude...

Well, I have a list of hikes I wanna do in the area before I leave. Now, I need to find more hikers!

Unfortunately, the article only briefly mentions the other half of the problem. Yes, physicians are sometimes too quick to push treatment before they know what's going on, but this process is facilitated by the demand that patients often put on the doctor to do something immediately. Sure, it can be scary knowing something is wrong, but having no idea what it could be. But if both patients and doctors take a deep breath before diving in to diagnosis, maybe they will hear what the body has to say.

Such a sweet idea. It seems like I've heard of others doing this, maybe with pictures or something. My dad doesn't keep friends long enough (haha!), but maybe I can do this for my mom one day...

Just when I thought Google didn't care! :)

So I tried a cooking experiment today. My Roomie and I are sort of obsessed with Pillsbury Savoring "Spinach Things," as they are affectionately known. But everyone knows everything tastes better when it's home made. Right? So I found a pretty close recipe (attached), or so I thought. But something is wrong with it. The mixture itself was really good. I think I just didn't like the bread. It sort of seemed doughy in the middle (but if I had cooked it longer, it would have burned!) and Roomie said the bread sort of made it "bland." I'm gonna keep trying (mainly because I bought so much spinach), and next time, I'll try taking pictures :)

Tomorrow I'm moving into my first apartment.. my first home away from my parents. And right now, I have no plan for my future. I know this is supposed to be stressful, but I'm really excited about heading into the unknown! As Douglas Adams wrote, "Whatever happens, happens."
