Zucchini is bad. Zucchini, in fact, is the worst vegetable. Uncooked zucchini exists in a vacuum of flavor. Cooked zucchini, on the other hand, tastes like what I imagine hot turtle water tastes like. How you can go from nothing to unholy with the mere introduction of heat is a testament to zucchini’s darkness. Zucchini is the cantaloupe of vegetables.

“I feel as if I am filled to the brim, fit to spill, with how much I love her and how much I resent being a secret. It makes me feel invisible and alone but I stand by her. I stand by her until I can’t anymore. When we break up, I am more determined than ever to come out to my father.”
The line between work and life is definitely blurred. Work events become social events, chance meetings become networking and because we are always wearing Hinterland gear and up to no good, theres always an opportunity for a photo shoot!

When I’m looking at new tarot decks, there are a few particular cards I like to check out first, to see how the artist has interpreted them.
