Pursue a Passion

tumblr_mc1oooHIjr1rdd58ro1_500

September brings us one step closer towards the end of the year. Where has the time gone? Feels like I can barely keep up lately…between a job interview, applying for a graduate program, several upcoming shows, a bachelorette party and now 2 weddings to piece together, this summer seemed like such a blur. On top of everything else, I am having wisdom teeth removed soon and I’m learning how to hoop. Needless to say, a lot’s going on.

This marks the first month I almost forgot about my resolutions. I quickly skimmed the chapter a few days ago and am currently working on the next blog post, all about new years resolutions for September: Pursue a Passion.

Since my love of food and cooking has taken off, I decided to go with Nutrition as the main subject of choice for September. Excited to google random, basic nutritional facts every day and to hoop for at least 20 minutes every day.

9-4: Something I have wondered for quite awhile: Does consuming “depressed and/or anxious” meat with higher frequencies of releases of cortisol affect consumer’s mental health? Interesting study, possibly the first concerning this question, however the study only covers a small scope. Would love to read a similar research proposal addressing more than 39 individuals.
