Licentious Indulgences

Jar of the Gods.

Nutella: A chocolate and hazelnut spread given to man by the Gods.

When it comes to guilty pleasures I cannot deny them, nor can I ignore them. I happen to be Puerto-Rican so therefore I am passionately attracted to chocolate and hazelnut spreads and Mangos, during my year spent on the tiny island the two would be part of my daily food triangle with the Mango at the top.

Have you ever had Nutella and Mango together–Mango chunks covered in hardened Nutella?

When I worked at Dillion’s (a small, unknown supermarket owned by Kroger) I always saved five-dollars just to get my Nutella fix for the week, I was the one who stocked them so the craving was a constant torture. What was more of a torture was the lack of Mango circulating in my diet, the ones you can get at Wal-Mart are far from the impeccable quality you get in Puerto-Rico. The attempt is futile.

There is one thing in this world however that trumps all substances, an object that has been worshiped for hundreds of years, a food that alters your very existance; the thing known as Bacon!

Ice cream

Bacon BLT
Bacon A-la-mode
Bacon Explosion
Bacon Mania!

Anything with Bacon is worth it’s spot in the limelight and you know what they say, “”When in doubt, throw cheese and Bacon on it.” As ironic as it is Bacon is divine ambrosia.
What’s on my plate tonight? A Bacon-Nutella sandwich with a Mango smoothie.

To Fail or Not to Fail

The sun is shining and the moon is full

“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure. ”
-Bill Cosby

These and others are the words that I live by, there’s never been a time in my life when I have ever regretted a failure–I most likely would if I suffered the fate of the individual above however. It has taken me a while to convince myself to continue writing after all the times people have said to give up and choose a different profession, I have even tried to stop myself in procrastination. A lot of times I see my writing to be mediocre and terrible in every way, wishing that I was gifted with the mind of Mark Twain or John Grisham…
I have wished apon a star numerous times only to find myself more accepting of my available talents and even if it isn’t in my destiny to become a Novelist there are other paths that I would still love to take. One of them would to be an Actor; my love and passion for movies emerged when I was a small child as I walked into the movie theater, the hair would stand up on the back of my neck and goosebumps rose from my arms as I felt an indescribable energy I eventually found addicting. Many times I have dreamed about becoming a Director as well, visualizing my story in movie form–will it happen? I hope and with enough of it my dreams may become reality…
I do expect some form of failure in my ventures, it is the only way to learn.

Without failure there would be no success, no peace without chaos, no Nutella without God…you get the point.
