break! All o’ this schooling is getting me stressed out. Maybe it’s a little selfish, but I have to watch out for myself, because no one else can pry open my skull and see what I need.
On the positive side of things, I’m beginning to reconcile the two views I’ve held in regard to the world not world “culture” or “society” or “politics”, but the planet as a whole, as a place in which to exist. I’ve bounced back and forth between believing that Earth is a beautiful, welcoming place where I can be anything I wish, and scorning the cold, unsympathetic desert of unhappiness that spewed my being sometime during the 20th century. I’m starting to realize that the world is kind of harsh and cold if you don’t understand her, but trillions of opportunities for happiness still exist if you’re willing to expend the effort. Also, she provides the needed ingredients for deliciously simple bean dip, which makes life seem so much more pleasant.
1 can of vegetarian refried beans
1/2 package of chili seasoning mix
3/4 cup of fat-free sour cream
1-2 cups of shredded cheddar
Slop the beans, seasoning and sour cream into a pie plate and stir everything together. Throw the cheese on top (more or less, depending on how much of a dairy glutton you are) and sling it into a 400F oven for 10-15 minutes. Use tortilla chips to gouge out some bits of delicious dippishness. Repeat for breakfast.
