Monica Gellar's Leftover Thanksgiving Sandwich

I love watching the Friends especially the Thanksgiving episodes. Anyways, remember that episode when Ross has a meltdown when a colleague ate his sandwich. I found the recipe online! Enjoy! 
3 slices bread
light mayonnaise (optional)
roasted turkey breast, sliced
cranberry sauce
green leaf lettuce (optional)
tomato slices (optional)
1. Spread a small amount of mayonnaise onto two slices of bread, if using.
2. Dip the remaining slice of bread in gravy and set aside.
3. Build the sandwich however you like, placing the gravy soaked bread in the center.
4. Push together and enjoy!
**We know that sandwiches can be a very personal thing, so we thought we’d leave the
amounts up to you to customize it to your exact liking!

Humans of New York - inspiring

"Gac Filipaj is a refugee from the former Yugoslavia. For the past twelve years, he has worked as a janitor for Columbia University.  His job title is “Heavy Cleaner,” which includes emptying the trash and cleaning the toilets. 

During this time, he worked until 11pm every night during the week.  After his shift concluded, he would start studying.  This weekend, after twelve years of study, Gac graduated from Columbia University with a Classics degree.  Rarely have so many qualities I admire been wrapped up in a single person."

Phylicia Rashad's letter to her 21-year-old self

Dear Phylicia,

Romantic involvement distracts you and can blind you to what’s really in front of you. And what’s really in front of you? You are. You don’t even know yourself yet. You think you know and you want to assert that you do, now that you’re a certain age, but you don’t. What’s in front of you is a world of experiences beyond your imagination. Put yourself first and your growth and development, first.

There are long-term repercussions to what you are doing now. Everything you do, every thought you have, every word you say creates a memory that will hold you in your body. It’s imprinted on you and affects you in subtle ways - ways you are not always aware of.

With that in mind, be very conscious and selective.

With high hopes for you,

Summer Plan

This past year went by quick because I moved to Santa Cruz for school. As of right now it's week three of the spring quarter and then it will be week 4 (aka midterm season), and soon the academic year would be over. Then I'll have three months of summer vacation. What I really want this summer is to look and feel great in a bikini, so I to need take of myself by my eating well and exercising. (photo)

Change your language. Change your attitude.

Change your language. Instead of saying "I don't have time" try saying "it's not a priority," and see how that feels. Often, that's a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don't want to. But other things are harder. Try it: "I'm not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it's not a priority." "I don't go to the doctor because my health is not a priority." If these phrases don't sit well, that's the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don't like how we're spending an hour, we can choose differently.
