This might sound like a lie, but I had an epiphany the while I was sweeping.
I used to despise sweeping. It was one of my least favorite chores. The only two tasks I hated more than sweeping were matching socks and ironing. Usually when I sweep it mostly involves me just moving the dirt from place to place, having problems with the stupid dust pan and getting pissed off.
At some point someone (probably Gabe) explained the upward motion part of sweeping and now I am much better at it. Now I don’t hate it as much.
This is also why I hate ironing so much. I am terrible at it. I end up ironing new wrinkles into things instead of what I am supposed to be doing. It is insanely frustrating and it makes me feel inept.
So to make a long story short (sort of) I am going to learn how to cook better. I have already learned some new skills watching
Top Chef Gabe cook, and once he taught me the right way to cut an onion my time in the kitchen has become significantly more pleasant. I used to despise cooking, and now I don’t mind it. I am hoping that if I keep getting better at it that I will learn to really enjoy it.
Plus, I really like eating. It’s a win/win scenario.
