I can now understand why people who are not from the South really don't like grits. For me, I really can't stand oatmeal. I think it may even be an either/or type deal... grits or oatmeal... or maybe even neither. The texture is weird for both.
I've tried to like oatmeal.. had some this morning actually. Added brown sugar and dried fruit. I managed to get down about 6 bites until I finally made myself quit because not being hungry just isn't worth it.
I think sometimes you get used to one thing and you just just can't turn back. No matter how hard you try. I managed to finish off a little bit more of the oatmeal by adding salt (I know that's gross to some people) but it sort of made me feel like I was eating grits and wasn't quite as bad.
So, all that to say, I'm going to try to let myself be ok with not ever liking certain foods. And also to say, it's really lame that the 2 coffee shops I know of in Blacksburg and Christiansburg aren't open at 8 am on a Sunday. LAME. Thus.. I was forced to go to Starbucks and waste my money on oatmeal.
I have now updated my blog three times as much in the last couple of days than I have in probably the last 5 months. Never ending papers will do that to you I guess. I went ahead and took proactive measures and deactivated my facebook account last night. The only thing standing between me and freedom is this damn paper.
