If you look for "tienda ecologica sevilla" in google, you'll find organic shops around. But also, look for the herboristeria, lots of them have organic and local fruits and veggies. In both, ask for boxes, discount (descuento) it;s very common here, don't hesitate.
I've never been to Sevilla... So I'm sorry I cannot be more helpful...
Awww, thanks. My new hair is definitely growing on me a little more each day. Sounds silly, but just letting it be is one of the most liberating things I have done in a long while.
Facebook...lol. Well, that's a bit of a ridiculous story actually. I was on Facebook, but no, I am not currently on Facebook. It's always funny when I tell people this, because I'm pretty sure that I (and maybe my great grandmother) are the only people on this planet not on Facebook, but nevertheless, its true. I'll have to tell you about that sometime, but its a little hard to explain it all in a comment on your page :)
I just saw Taylor recently too! He has been having a bunch of people over to his parents' place in Vero Beach this past week, including Jourdan, Christine, Sam, Jack, and a few others...I actually came at the tail end of it, on Friday. Sam and Jack were still there when I got there, but they left after a couple of hours, and it was just Taylor and I for the rest of the day.
As for the old boyfriend, well, things got a little out of hand there. But it's okay now. We have now very firmly established that we are nothing more than friends. And it feels much better this way.
And YES, come see me this fall! Or I'll come see you or something. We have been putting this off WAY too long. And I am seriously going to need to PM or e-mail you or something very soon. I've got news, girly :)
Oh, by the way, one of the best things about this summer is that I have stopped straightening my hair...bet you didn't even know I straightened it lol. Most people don't, but I've been doing it most days since I was 13. It used to be so unmanageable when I was younger, though its much better now that I have made several changes (diet, shower filter, less frequent washing, NO brushing, lol). I felt sort of self-conscious at first, especially because I have done some damage to it, but its already grown on me. And its so liberating to just wake up in the morning and just let it be what it is.
Yeah, that song seems to be the favorite among everyone who comments on the songs on my page, that one and Forest City. I know Taylor said something about it, and the last time I checked, it was on his page as well lol.
My summer has actually been pretty nice. The internship...well, I decided it really wasn't for me...actually, truth is, I couldn't find out enough about it to even determine if it would be something I'd be interested in. I contacted several people about it, and either I got no response or just some generic useless response that they obviously sent out to like fifty other people. Finally, one day, in the middle of finals week, I get an e-mail saying that they received my resume and that if I am still interested, I should answer the following questions using the attached site layout. The work and time required to complete all the necessary calculations was quite extensive, and I just didn't have time for it (received the e-mail on a Friday and they wanted the work by Monday morning!). It didn't seem worth it anyway, given that its apparently impossible to find out what you are getting yourself into ahead of time with these things! So I'm just as happy to be at home, chilling and making some money in a relaxed, stress-free atmosphere. Like you said, everything works out for the best. Plus, I ran into an old friend recently (old boyfriend, to be more specific) and we're hanging out again...I don't know what the heck we're doing truth be told, but I think we're both having fun, so that's all that really matters lol.
Cali sounds beautiful. I am so glad you're happy there. For me, the question of whether or not I'll be doing any traveling is still sort of up in the air...money is a bit tight, but now that I am able to work regularly and for greater lengths of time, its not out of the question.
Lol, I love that combo myself. I was addicted to tomatoes for a long time, but am slowly trying to lay off of them. I still eat them now, but a lot less in the past 2 weeks. I am just starting to experiment with different combinations so I'll let you know when I hit something good. ;)
Yes, I think a large part of the problem lies with me. I didn't always live this lifestyle correctly and I've been through a few rough patches, but now that I know what I am doing, now that I am in the flow of things, it's obvious that I'm on to something, if that makes any sense. My family can see that. I love my sister, really I do, but I don't see her often enough for her to really understand the ways in which things have changed. I hope that one day that will no longer be the case.
I am truly so boring with my food these days! I think a large part of the problem is that I have stopped eating tomatoes (they seem to cause the old back pain to flare up- may not be the case anymore, but I'm afraid to test it out), and all of my "recipes" used to include them. I know this isn't really an insurmountable problem, but I haven't yet made much of an attempt to expand my horizons. Will have to get on that!
So I guess you're in Cali by now, lucky girl! How is it?!? How was your trip? By the way, sorry it took me forever to finally respond...life's been kind of hectic for the past couple weeks...finals week and all, you know how it goes =/
That's pretty awesome that you were modeling here in NY! Do you still model?
I've been talking to Sam Spaiser. He's such a great guy. He mentioned your name because he was talking about how he's moving and who he will be ordering in bulk with. I was like, I think I know her! lol
Hopefully I can visit you guys in Florida one day. I love it there so much
Yes, my sister is older, significantly older in fact. She is actually 34 years old, and she worries about me the same way that my parents used to, only she is much more overbearing and direct about it. This places a bit of tension on our relationship, as I think I have proven by now that this lifestyle is not going to kill me! Notice, by the way, how I said "used to" in regard to my parents. Things are really much better on that front. I think that the way I was able to heal so effectively and efficiently contributed to their backing off a bit in the end (though initially it was the old you-are-never-going-to-get-better-with-so-little-protein argument). And I feel so happy all the time these days. Its hard to argue with that =)
I don't have skype, but I'm starting to think that it's something I really need to look into, seeing as how you are probably the seventh person to ask me that question in the past month lol.
OMG, your new food pics are so beautiful! I especially love the happy face dinner =D You are quite the creative one, Miss Ally.
Thank YOU for accepting! :) It's really great to connect with others around the same age
I'm actually in West Central FL (Tampa bay area) but its lovely! We do get some fruit from South FL at the local markets. But sadly I'll be back in Connecticut for mango and mamey and all the summer fruits.
How are things where you are?? What are your summer plans?
I'm so glad your 21st birthday was a good one...I don't turn 21 until December 19, but I've already got people offering to take me out for 21 shots when the day comes (my sister was talking about this back in October before I had even turned 20). I'm pretty sure she was kidding about the shots, but she does seem to think I should at least let her buy me a drink. I told her she could buy me all the drinks she wanted, but don't be surprised when I use them to build the Great Wall of Beers or something. She thinks I'm a funny kid, I'm sure.
Yes, the sapodilla from Jourdan is SO good right now, definitely a worthy birthday splurge, and the papayas I have been ordering regularly for quite some time, as well as the ice cream bananas.
Haha, I can see you have a passion for the giraffes. I feel like kind of a giraffe-loving poser now lol.
I believe that May 2 is my last day of school...I would love to make my way over to CA this summer...I suppose the options are really unlimited at this point, so why not? I'll definitely let you know what ends up happening with me. At this point, it's mostly a question of whether or not I am going to go for that internship because if I do (and assuming I get it), it will probably limit the amount of time I can dedicate to travel. If I don't, the nice thing is that I already have another source of income...I work as a tutor online, so I can bring my work with me anywhere and work whenever and for whatever length of time I like (seriously, I think it wins the best part-time job ever award lol).
Glad you like the music =) I can get you a list of artists if that would be helpful. I know a couple of songs probably already have artists listed, but most don't.
Yay, it's your birthday! Happy birthday, my dear! Or maybe tomorrow is technically your birthday? I know this site is always a little off for me, probably because it runs on Aussie time...
This semester has been great. I'm so happy to have life returning to normal after taking last semester off to recuperate from the whole herniated disc episode. I'm not sure what my plans are for this summer now...originally, I was going to take one or maybe both of my senior engineering design courses, but it turns out neither is going to be available now. I am thinking of applying for an engineering internship position with the FL Dep. of Environmental Protection that my academic advisor recommended to me, and I've already contacted someone there, hoping for a bit more in the way of details. It's all up in the air at this point, and I may end up doing something completely different. That usually seems to be the case. Some new idea always pops up at the last second.
Kind of a random story for you...I met Sam for the first time in person a couple of weeks ago (he spent a couple of days in Orlando), and we were in this magnet store in Downtown Disney (yes, there is a store just for magnets lol), and they had all these stuffed animal magnets, and Sam asked me which one was my favorite. I said the giraffe, and then he mentioned to me that you have a thing for giraffes too lol. Not a particularly interesting story I guess, but it got me thinking how I haven't talked to you in ages.
So exciting that you are going out to California! I was so ridiculously happy when I first found out that you and Robby were going out. Seriously the most adorable thing ever. So what's this summer job you mentioned?
Glad you saw Banana Cereal! You should check out Persimmon Pudding too. The songs are particularly good, lol.
How's Florida fruit right now? What's happenin? I'm feeling in kind of a dead spot in the Norcal fruit seasons... mainly because persimmons are gone. FROWN. I'm ready for melon and heirloom toms but I still have 4-5 months to wait.
actually i have established myself permantently in Hawaii...at least to my knowledge, i don't expect to 'live' anywhere else. i will most definitely visit some other countries for some amazing fruit (eating and growing), housing, and living inspiration.
Hi, your Spanish is much better than mine :) I don't know of the two markets you mentioned. I'll write them down and check for them on Thursday, my day to go do the shopping. It would be fun to meet for lunch, but I only come in on Thursdays and you might be having a Thanksgiving family meal!!??
I hope you have a wonderful visit and do let me know what you find here:)
I'm not sure if we have durian or not, maybe you can let me know!!?? I think I saw something that looks like the pictures, but not real sure. BTW, the papaya is great, but you need to let it get really funny looking and ripe. It's a bit pricey but delicious.
When do you arrive????
