I'm obviously still 12, because I tried the Cinnamon Challenge this weekend. For those of you who don't know, the challenge is to swallow a whole teaspoon of cinnamon without any water.
This video from GloZell on Youtube has gone viral. I wanted to try the challenge because I thought surely this lady was exaggerating.

Hanging Out With the Fam
We watched Persepolis together over the weekend. The movie is about a girl growing up in Iran during the 1970s, which is a time of turmoil and revolutions.

I feel very naive when it comes to problems in the Middle East, and I want to read more books about all the issues going on over there.
Sunday I had Easter brunch with my extended family at an Irish pub. I don't know if it's just me, but when I think of Ireland, it doesn't scream out "Easter" to me. But the food was good and I got to be with my family.
And now it's back to the grind. Hope everybody had wonderful breaks! Tell me if you did anything fun this weekend.
