‘Ello there.  The name’s Candice.

I’m a Type A perfectionist who needs to chill out. I don’t want to be one of those people who worry to death over the most miniscule things, whether it’s about grades, my future, or my food. I don’t want to end up dying from high blood pressure because I worry so damn much.  God already has a plan for me, right?  Why can’t I just trust His judgment and do my best?  The thing is, my definition of “my best” is seriously skewed.  But I’m working to fix that—to set less harsh parameters for myself and to appreciate what I’m able to do.

This blog is a collection of random snippets of my life, most involving food in some way or another, as I embark for the future.  I don’t know what I’m going to do in ten years, nor do I know how I’m going to get there.  I guess these entries will help me document that though, hm?  :)

reconciling with food
with life
with fate
with myself

    Methinks we’re in a very similar boat. Last year when my dad was talking to my House Counselors (boaaaaarding school) I distinctly remember one of them coming into my room and telling me that he said that it’s *me* putting pressure on myself and I didn’t *have* to stress so much….
    I was…shocked. I didn’t know what to do/say…. I think I just started crying. :S Anyway, a lot has improved since then. And every day is a step of this journey. :)
