Silence The Nancy's

It is the start of the new year.

Which means everyone is all revved up to reinvent themselves.

Which means I am surrounded by a lot of negativity.

Lunch Guy: 'Would you like white or brown rice with your stir fry today?'
Me: White please! But no beef just veggies.
Other people: *Side eye because I ordered white rice*

Friends: 'Oh I drank so much this New Year's Eve. I'm never drinking again.
Me: 'Oh haha, I had sparkling cider for NYE.'
Other People: *Side eye because this weirdo isn't sick like the rest of us!*

Random people: 'I'm giving up soda! I'm giving up bread! I'm giving up sugar!'
Me: 'Ummm...why you gotta be so negative about my life choices though?'

Hehe. Happy Thursday ya'll.

*Obviously this post is a joke...but I know the obvious is sometimes lost on the interwebs.*

I had white rice with butter and salt for lunch. Oops, not a great start to the new year!

White rice and pasta every day!!!!!! HAHAHHA

I always roll my eyes at the cliche New Year's resolutions, and the need to reinvent yourself. I mean, I get it, everyone wants to better themselves, but I guarantee the people giving you the side eye will be at Olive Garden chowing down on the 'Never Ending Pasta Bowl,' by month's end.

I take white rice with almost everything, yes I am Asian! Some peeps just need to stop babbling and focus on their real life, there'll be some peace!

Health resolutions at the New Year always make me laugh - of course everyone is overstuffed and has overdrunk so it seems like swearing off things is a good idea. But after the two days it takes to digest, it's easy to forget. I say, eat whatever colour rice you want :)

People are notorious for thinking that what's best for them will work for everyone else. GET THAT WHITE RICE BABY!
