I never really understood the point of sliders. If I’m going to eat a burger, I want a burger. I might not eat the whole thing, but the option is there, and I like options. And then, one day I made sliders and had an a-ha moment. I totally get sliders now.

Summer is kind of misleading, it feels like you will have all the time in the world to do everything, but you don’t. I guess it’s the same thing as how you can’t do everything all the time. As much as I don’t like making decisions, (totally normal for a 20 year old – non?) it makes you figure out your priorities. Which is the silver lining, I suppose. Like right now, enjoying my summer is definitely a priority. I might be a little slower responding to emails, or testing recipes, but it feels right.
