I'm pretty sure I'm addicted to sugar, so I'm trying to stop eating sugar-foods cold-turkey. After a month (how long it takes to break a habit), I plan to eat it sparingly, like some ice cream a few times a week. Seriously, though, this is SO HARD! I have these awful cravings and I'm just dying for SUGAR!! So I'm eating raw cashews (they're delicious), a LOT of apricots (for something sweet...I've eaten 2 today already), and drinking tons of water (Heather, if you're reading this!...). I'm sure it sounds like I'm exaggerating, but really this is hard!
I've got some pictures to post later from last weekend when Jardan, Eve, and I went camping. It was beautiful--just 2 hours away and there were forests of pine trees and birds and real dirt (not just sandy dust) and it smelled so good! It was amazing. But I have to get back to studying for now, I'm taking a great class on anti-slavery movements. It's pretty rigorous because it's only 5 weeks long, and we've got an impressive amount of reading to get done. The good thing is that it's really interesting! Thanks for listening!
