So this year the biggest struggle that I have faced is affording groceries. I have found a new love for cooking foods of all types. Some are very good and others definitely need some improvement but it’s so much fun creating different flavors from scratch. My latest cooking tangent is making sourdough bread and other recipients such as sourdough waffles and sourdough pizza. The main problem with all of this is going to the store and dropping fifty, sixty, seventy, or eighty dollars for a week or two weeks is rough on the bank account. I think the best way to deal with this is to get a part time job somewhere so I have a semi steady income. The problem with that is from my knee surgery I am unable to stand for long periods of time. I think by next semester I will be able to work so that will definitely help my situation out a lot. Being able to afford good food and nice ingredients will be lots of fun and eliminate my stress.
