    I know this sounds kinda fake or whatever, but I seriously recommend blue apron. I am apart of a family of four so each night we take turns making them and they are very delicious. and they have different choices of time! You can pick ones that take 30 minutes or one that take 45. Blue apron sent a delicious recipe for spaghetti and it has been a hit at party’s ever since.

    So I'm 17 yrs old and stopped smoking cigarettes (haven't smoked for 3 days, smoked before that for about a year) and I would go to smoke inbetween classes but I've stopped going out bcos I dont smoke anymore
    I wander maybe its the socialization i get in front of the school that im missing or the nicotine
    So would it be bad or good to go outside and not smoke or bad bcos it could influence me to smoke
    Sorry for the long text

      Maybe you like the fresh air, or the feel of it in your mouth? Try both. for fresh air ask for the bathroom and step outside. And for the feel try (idk if you have these in amarica but we do on canada) popeye sticks. They taste really good and feel and look exactly like one. My mom smokes so that's how I know.

    I used to have habit of eating late at night. I have eaten 1-2 raw instant noodles after midnight more than once. (In my country we have the kind of instant noodles which are also edible and delicious to be eaten raw...but its not quite healthy anyway)
    Do you know what broke my habits? Breaking up with my bf broke that down tbh I have lost like 3/4 of my appetite i dont know why.
    But I still have 2 major bad habits that I’m trying to quit :
    -Staying up late watching useless videos on youtube (my worst time was when I stayed up until 5 am)
    -Can not focus on important stuff and always be distracted by youtube, twitter and instragram.
    Does anyone feels me? ;(

      Depends...if u think the day should be longer then see where are u wasting time and fill it with more interesting stuff....and if its the other situation where u just never feel tired its cause u dont do enough pysical activities. ( Basicly stop wasting time and/or find an interesting sport or something like that) i hope this helps :3
