This is a place for me to reflect on things that are happening in my life.  I might just be one person in this big world of ours, but I'm one person that's on a mission... Life:: the sequence of physical and mental experiences that make up the existence of an individual. Life is a funny thing.  It is forever changing and as it changes so will I.

  1. Be careful about your use with disposable chopsticks. Because wood is not naturally the white, pristine color of disposable chopsticks, they are bleached which leaks into your food when eating. Instead, purchase portable metal chopsticks that screw apart for easy storage. They come with a small storage case that can be thrown in your bag.

You may ALWAYS speak your mind here! :)
