We’re going back in time again people. In the vault. Back to May. When I first started posting recipes and taking pictures with my phone. The phone I had dropped multiple times while intoxicated in college, standing on top of a bar. That’s a far plunge for a phone. Anyways, meatza is like pizza. But the crust is made out of meat, duh. And even though it doesn’t look quite as appetizing as pizza, it legit smells like real pizza. It’s epic. My friend Jaelyn told me just a couple weeks ago that her and her bf made a crust out of bacon and it was the greatest thing she’s ever tasted. I envy her life.
I failed with athleticism once again this weekend. What the f*ck is wrong with me?! I now wish my parents would have forced me into sports as a child. But for real, if I would have played sports growing up, I would have been considered a “cool kid” in high school and then went on to fit in with people in the park playing volleyball in the park. Instead, I sit on the side lines, staring at others as they walk by, since I’m not drinking either. I must look like the BIGGEST bore. Such a shame. I swear I’m not a total bore. Kind of.
But my failure with athleticism came in the form of riding a bike on Saturday. Sarah and I had to ride bikes from the park to my house, which is NOT far, and I managed to fall off my bike 1 minute into the ride….in front of multiple men….in the middle of the street. I scraped my knee like a child. Cars had to stop. I looked dumb, end of story.
I’m literally never going to get a date. I’m being dramatic. Or just realistic.
