Life Lately

It’s been a while since I last posted, hasn’t it? I thought I’d write a quick post with an update on a few things that I’ve been busy with.

My internship

I have spent the last month or so adjusting to my new internship. I’m grateful to have a job and the people I work with are cool, but it’s definitely been an adjustment. This is my first position in the tech field, so I do feel like I’m unqualified most of the time (silly imposter’s syndrome). Overall I think I am getting used to everything, and I will say I am learning a LOT.

There’s also a bit of a learning curve training remotely instead of in-person…it made me feel a little isolated at first, but with all the online communication (Zoom, Slack, etc.), the list of people I can reach out to with questions has only expanded since I’ve started working there. I think I have been doing well on my assignments, so hopefully things will keep looking up!

Cooking

I’ve been experimenting with a few new recipes lately, and I’ve loved them all! I found some Sweet Chili sauce from Wegman’s, and it tastes amazing on cauliflower! I normally cook buffalo cauliflower ‘wings’, but I’m glad I can switch it up with that Sweet Chili Sauce from now on.

Since Taco Bell removed their Spicy Potato Soft Tacos from their restaurants, I decided to make my own. I honestly like mine better (plus it’s probably healthier as I bake my potatoes instead of frying them and use veggies instead of cheese), so I suppose I’ll have to thank Taco Bell for removing them (just kidding, I’m still salty since they also removed my 7 Layer Burrito and Spicy Tostada).

Fall wanderlust

Autumn is my favorite time to travel-the weather is perfect and you’re bound to drive past some changing leaves. I think this whole pandemic thing is finally hitting me a little because I really miss being able to go out-even if it’s just to a local mall (which I suppose I could still go to, but the vibe is just off right now)-and feeling the autumn air in my face surrounded by people bustling about on their own paths. I’m just going to tell myself to keep on working and looking up; I guess this is my time to “save up” for whenever life becomes somewhat normal again.

  1. That sauce looks so DELICIOUS. omg. I want some. And those tacos, too! It’s funny, I haven’t had the soft potato tacos, or Taco Bell, for that manner, in a very, very, long time. Possibly a year or more :’) And recently, I’ve actually been craving it, and then I hear that the soft potatoes have been STRICKEN from the menu, alas!!

    • It was very delicious, I hope you can find some somewhere haha. Ah that’s such bad timing that you’ve suddenly had a craving for the spicy potato taco after it was gone. Taco Bell was normally my go-to option when my parents want to go out for fast food but now I’m more meh about it
