Weekly update! What's new in Taylor's life?
Here's a little look into what's new with me this week!
Book I'm reading: The Conversion Code - by Chris Smith (I'm almost done! About 30 pages left)
Favorite show I'm watching: Big Little Lies (it's on HBO)
Favorite song right now: Miami - by Will Smith (Kicking it back to old school this week)
Worst moment this week: I had some old memories come up from my times in the hospital when I was young and undiagnosed with my conditions. It's hard to cope with my illnesses and remember that I didn't have a normal teenage life, especially when hearing about high school stories from my friends. However, reflecting on these tough times makes me grateful for my better health now.
Best moment this week: My roommate is going off to military training for 7 months. So I spent Saturday night with him and all his friends for a game night before he left. Board games, video games, and gluten-free pizza for me! It turned out to be a very fun time.
Where I ate out this week: Fusian in Columbus, OH! They have great sushi.
Wednesday (12:30 PM EST on Facebook Live): My Girlfriend and I Will Be Sharing Our Tips for Dating Gluten Free:
As you know, Valentine's Day is this week. I get questions all of the time, "how do you deal with being gluten-free and dating?" Well, I got lucky enough to find someone who truly understands my life with dietary restrictions. My girlfriend actually happens to be dairy free and vegetarian herself! With that being said, some people aren't as lucky. Not to mention, the path to finding someone who understands your dietary restrictions is tough. It was even tough for me to explain everything to my girlfriend in the beginning. That's why this Wednesday my girlfriend and I will both be sharing our tips with how to date gluten-free. She'll be sharing her side as the one who is not gluten-free and I obviously will be sharing my side as someone who is. Join us then!
