So... I'm taking half the day to just slow down and not think about work. My life has been so busy the past few months. Busy is good but I do wish I was more busy doing things that excited me. I've been reading this book called, The 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss. I'm probably only a quarter-way through the book, and I'm hooked. I highly recommend this to anyone who may be in a situation where they feel they need more time to do what they enjoy. Its just changing my whole thought process about complying to "rules". Very interesting.
Anyway, I wanted to give an update on my passion for beneficial, herbal tea blends. Sounds kind of random, I know lol, but I'm just gonna keep going with my thought .... For most of the month of Novemeber, I was in China working on our Q3 development. For some reason, while I was out there, the topic of "tea" came up A LOT. I always drink green tea (almost everyday) while I'm in the office in NY. But in China, we have it with just about every meal. Its cool because green tea is so healthy for you. This trip, I think I tried 3 more different kinds of tea. My favorite was this Indonesian tea we had on my bday. It was sweetened (with idk what), but chinese tea is rarely served that way. Iced Oolong tea is bangin too. I even saw them mix it with the drinks in the club haha.
I'm learning a lot and I think the knowledge can come in handy soon. Today, I decided to blend together some loose green tea I brought back from China, with a spicy chai blend (already in a bag) + honey for sweetness. It came out really good. It smelled like a cozy day too lol. Just don't let the spicy chai steep for too long. It makes the tea too bold.
Remember my post about "Making herbal tea with the girlies "? Last night, I ordered 10 more bags of herbs. When they come in, I'm going to try to make a healthy herbal tonic. Def excited. I'll keep you posted :)

(My head has been in the clouds)
Last year, I remember writing a post, titled, "My thoughts". Every once in a while, I go on this hiatus from social media, just to bring myself to some level of solitude. I try to quiet down the noise I guess. I think everyone needs it from time to time and it usually happens to me in the months leading to my bday, (Nov. 15) through New Years day. I start to build this level of desire for change. It's almost like I have to build a higher step for me to try to climb up on, so that I feel I'm constantly progressing and gaining a higher level of knowledge. More importantly, its a way for me to zoom out and bring myself back down to earth. Realizing that you're just a tiny piece to a huge picture is a big thing. Every piece is important and people should treat each other this way. I feel that I've been on a journey for some time now and that God has put me in a position to make some bigger decisions for myself. It's all a test at the end of the day and I'm grateful for it.
Some of the things I'm going to be blogging might get a little deep, but that's nothing new and I encourage everyone to comment since I don't have a FB anymore lol.
I've had a lot on my mind lately, so I'm curious to see how it's going to come out in the next few posts lol. Stay tuned :)
