About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Shaya (pronounced like this), and I am a married student, blogger, and eater who lives in Southern California for school. I was born and raised in the Seattle area and fully plan to return there as soon as possible.

married to the Hubs on June 5th, 2010

braving the cold Seattle air

My wonderful husband isn’t living with me right now, and you can read more about our situation here!

Favorite foods include salad beasts, ginorm smoothies (in a bowl! with toppings!), hearty and healthy pasta dishes, and Persian food my mom whips up.

A weird thing about me is that I have extremely sensitive ears– I need to protect them during outdoor exercise or I will feel excruciating pain. No idea why but I just know to cover ’em up!

headphones? check! headband? check! (not seen in photo-- earmuffs. sad day.)

Also, I love to cook but I HATE to bake. Which stinks because I love eating baked goods 😉

My goal this year is to run a 10k, and to run a half sometime next year! (the pic above is me running my very first 5k race, it was magical!)

Anyway, hope you enjoy my tiny piece of the internet 🙂

    Aw, cute blog! I know what you mean about loving to cook and hating to bake. I don’t “hate” to bake, per se, but I hate following recipes. When I cook I can be as creative as I want and I just sorta do my thing. The precision of baking annoys me. NO idea how I was a chemistry major 🙂

      Thanks girl!! I dislike the precision as well– I’m all about tossing things together that you think will work, and being all kinds of creative 😉

      And I understand– if you had to be so precise for school, that’s probably the last thing you wanted to do when you got home!

    Just came across your blog & I love it! I hear ya on the cooking/baking thing, my issue is that I hate sticking to recipes, I use one but I always find myself tweaking it and making it my own. Then I can’t remember what exactly I used the next time I make it. 😛 lol

      Thanks friend!! Ya, it’s been nice to have the blog because you can document the ingredients in your meals haha, otherwise I tend to forget too!
