In case you missed the massive lettering at the top of the page, the name of my blog is Life with a Fork. I chose this name for a number of reasons. First, I knew I wanted my blog to be somewhat food related (hence, “Fork“). Secondly, I knew my blog would be more than just food. I am no chef and I honestly don’t like to compile recipes so there was no way I would have enough material to have a food blog. Enter “Life“. I mean, I did move across the world as you know so surely you’d like to hear a bit about that, right? Last, and most certainly not least, by including the word “Life” it allowed me the perfect excuse for those times when I would go days…err weeks….without posting. Because you know what? I was out living my life.
Bad excuse, I know. Honestly, it was a bit about living my life, but more lack of creativity, inspiration, motivation, and wit. So sorry friends.
Anyways, as I mentioned before, I am no chef in the kitchen so I don’t have any excited food-related updates for you. Still eating the same ol’ meat, veggies, and my weight in avocados.
I will, however, update you on my life by broadcasting a series of pictures from the past few weeks! These pictures will include multiple evenings out in the city which inherently also include alcohol. Here is my rule, people: any clear liquor of your choice, on the rocks, add a lime. I promise you that you can not suck it down fast enough to get drunk. Why? Because it tastes like shit, that’s why. No one actually likes the taste of straight vodka. This has saved me from fitting the “American girls come to Madrid to get drunk every night” stereotype on numerous occasions. You will also avoid the “ohmygodddddddd why aren’t you drinkingggggggg” questions from your not-so-receptive friends that seem to become increasingly less comprehensible as the night conspires. I hope you enjoy.
I also hope I will gain a little more creativity in the coming weeks.
