If you’ve been stalking my comments lately on other blogs (which, would totally be creepy, but kind of cool in a #fangirl type of way…) then you’d know that I have been saying for weeks that I need to make some soup. After all, it’s been in the cold 30’s for awhile now, which I think that also means that this post is way overdue.
Below is a collection of 6 delicious-looking soup recipes that I’ve happened across on the blog world. They are all super simple.
1 has beef.
2 feature butternut squash.
3 contain apples.
4 are vegan.
5 use no sweeteners.
And 6 are egg-free, grain-free, nut-free, tomato-free and bean-free!

I also want to share three things that I’ve been loving lately:
Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.
Elisa has always felt powerless, useless. Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king who needs her to be the chosen one, not a failure of a princess. And he’s not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies, seething with dark magic, are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could save his people. And he looks at her in a way no man has ever looked at her before. Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young.
Most of the chosen do.
I just finished this amazing book at about midnight last night. The Girl of Fire and Thorns is considered fantasy by most, but it was very mild. The coolest part of the book was how the author addressed body image and self-worth in a fantasy/long-time-ago context. Body image wasn’t the main plot of the story, but more of an underlying theme, which I thought was very profound and moving.
Batman Begins explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark Knight’s emergence as a force for good in Gotham.
I’ve already seen this movie about a dozen times or more, but a group of my friends always get together every Wednesday to watch some type of Batman-esque show. We’ve watched part of the animated series, and all of the old batman movies. This past Wednesday we made it up to the most modern trilogy with Christian Bale. It’s so neat to see how everything has changed! He’s no George Clooney, but I adore this movie all the same.
3. TV Show
Six students at Kirin Art High School work to achieve their dreams of becoming stars in the Korean music industry. During the drama, the students learn how to develop their singing, songwriting and dancing skills while also undergoing personal growth. Each one of the students have their own strength and their own weaknesses, but with the support and guidance of each other, they strive to debut on stage.
This TV show was a recent find on Netflix, and in just the past week I’ve managed to make it through 7 hour-long episodes. It does have subtitles, because the main characters don’t speak English, and while I normally hate subtitles, there is just something about this show that makes me want to keep on watching. It’s somewhat cheesy, but the emotions of the actors and actresses are much deeper than I first expected. There are two seasons, but they have different main characters. I don’t think anything can beat Season One.
I know I said in my last post that I was going to talk more about how I’ve been feeling lately, and some dietary changes that I want to make, but that’s just too depressing for this beautiful Friday. The post will come eventually, when I’m ready, but for now I just want to enjoy the holiday season, free from worry!
