Today, a friend of mine told me that some Gummy Bears and other gummy candies are not vegetarian friendly. I was shocked to hear this because I am a huge fan of sour gummy worms. I am not a vegetarian but I don't eat pork or beef products, so this would obviously cause a problem for me.

I had to find out for myself if this is really true, so I googled it :)
After checking out a couple of sites, I found out that some gummy candies do use an ingredient called gelatin which is "derived from the collagen inside animals' skin and bones." Fortunately, I read that Sour Patch Kids are in fact vegan friendly and don't contain gelatin. So, from now on, I'm going to have to look at the ingredients on all gummy candies before I buy them. Oh and gelatin is also used in marshmallows! It's crazy to think about what else is in our food....

It Will Be Done..

Friday, February 26, 2010
I'm always saying "Oh I've always wanted to that" and I'm constantly adding new things to my bucket list. As of now, my personal bucket list is extremely long, but nothing has been crossed out. Nothing. I'm going to change that. My goal is to do something that I've always wanted to do by the end of this school year which will be June. I have no idea what is it that I'm going to do, but I'm going to do something and it is going to be amazing.

Race to the finish line...

Monday, February 22, 2010

Today me and my friend were sitting in the lecture hall waiting for our class to begin when we were talking about our recent search for an apartment to live in for the next school year. We were at first really excited talking about how much fun we were gonna have living together with our other two best friends, decorating the place, cooking together, late night talks... it would be like a permanent sleepover, an unending fiesta. Then we began talking about renter's insurance, how we were going to pay the bills, how long we were going to live there and if we were planning on staying after we graduated... then it dawned on us... when did we grow up? We looked at each other and began laughing at how old we sounded. Insurance? Bills? Graduation?! When did this happen? Last time I checked, I was sitting in front of the TV watching gossip girl and asking my mom if dinner was ready yet.

It really is amazing to me how fast time flies by and its not just when I'm having fun anymore. Whether its sitting for an hour in a lecture hall or a 3-day weekend or even your teenage years... as you get older, days just seem shorter and the weeks seem to repeat themselves, before you know it, months will have passed by and a new year is slapping you in the face.

When we were kids we always pretended to be older and desired to be older. When we are older, we wish for the days of our youth back.

I remember when I was a kid, I always wanted to be like my older cousins. They looked so cool driving their cars, hanging out with their friends, and so pretty with all their makeup on. I was the lame baby cousin who had her annoying little sister attached to her hip. Now, I realize I am only 20 and that is relatively young... but I'm pretty sure I'm suffering from my quarter life crisis so what better time to write about this? But anyway, now that I'm 20, I wish I was a kid again, when my biggest crisis was when my easy bake oven broke and when the biggest trouble I could get into was pulling my sister's hair. I miss watching saturday morning cartoons with a bowl of cereal not worrying about what labs I have to finish or what midterms I have in the up coming week. Hey childhood if you're out there... I miss you.

Childhood was a simple lifestyle and adulthood can be simple too. We just have to remember that we are still kids at heart. While we're kids, we race and race to grow up and its only when we're finally faced with grown up issues that we're surprised that we've reached our finish line and we're even more surprised to find out that the first to the finish line, is actually the loser.

On Life...

Sunday, February 21, 2010

Oh the Places you'll go!

  • You have brains in your head.
    You have feet in your shoes.
    You can steer yourself
    any direction you choose.
    You're on your own.
    And you know what you know.
    And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go.
  • You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.
    You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
    Wherever you fly, you’ll be the best of the best.
    Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.
  • I'm sorry to say so
    But, sadly it's true
    That bang-ups and hang-ups
    Can happen to you.
  • On and on you will hike, And I know you’ll hike far
    and face up to your problems whatever they are.

    You’ll get mixed up of course, as you already know.
    You’ll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go.

    So be sure when you step.
    Step with care and great tact
    And remember that Life’s a great balancing act.

    Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
    And never mix up your right foot with your left.

  • Will you succeed?
    Yes you will indeed!
    (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
