hi there.

Welcome to my blog. I'm spending a year capturing happiness, and I invite you to come along as I journey toward a more joyful living. I also write about travel, food, and matters of the spirit. Hope you enjoy!

The Pineapple

I'm having  How I Met Your Mother flashbacks, the one with the pineapple incident. My joyful moment is not like that. 

It seems really trivial, but today I was really excited because I bought a pineapple for the first time in my life, cut it, and ate it. 

note: not my first time eating pineapple, just my first time purchasing one and then figuring out what to do with it. 

Skills! 

Skills! 

Ten years ago, I would have had to call my parents and have them talk me through it. Now, I can watch a "How to cut a pineapple" video on YouTube from my smartphone while I'm on the treadmill. It's a little insane. 

Long story short, I ate 85% of the pineapple in one day. I almost ate the whole thing, but I stopped myself just shy of the end by imagining having some for lunch tomorrow.  

I have problems.  

Unrelated: while I was on a walk, two of my friends randomly drove by and gave me a lift home so I wasn't late to my evening plans. How lovely to be in a city such as Providence!
