Friday things

So I promised this blog would be about writing, reading, and traveling and I haven’t done a post on any of those things in a very long time. I’m sorry! All I can say is that I’ve been too busy writing, reading, and traveling to post about them. But I’m going to do better. I promise.

Here are three things I’ve learned this week:

1. The solace I find in favorite stories is like no other. How do people who don’t read books get through hard times? I’m going to write more on this later.

2. If you’re cooking something and it tastes kind of bland and you’re not sure what to do–add smoked paprika. It’s the most delicious spice I’ve ever come across and it makes everything taste better.

3.I cannot stop laughing over this. Laughter is good for you.
