*Taps mic* Hello, is this thing on? Testing one, two.
It’s been a while since my last post… and honestly, I’m okay with that. I think I am finally over the “Omg I haven’t written on the blog so long—the horror” moment. Even though I haven’t been active here, I have contributed to the Food Culture & Co blog and created content for Instagram and Tiktok these past months.

The feeling just came out of no where and coincidentally, I found myself hungry. But instead of going right into the kitchen to look for food, I kept saying, “No, Derencia, you have to finish this first before you can eat.” I literally, prioritized my job, before my basic human needs.
