"I don't think that being a strong person is about ignoring your emotions and fighting your feelings. Putting on a brave face doesn't mean you're a brave person. That's why everybody in my life knows everything that I'm going through. I can't hide anything from them. People need to realise that being open isn't the same as being weak."

- Taylor Swift

Another one of my weird habits is that I drink vinegar.


Straight out of the bottle.

Off a teaspoon.

You must think I'm nuts.

My mum buys this really good balsamic vinegar, and I'm kind of addicted to it. It's not just sour - it's sweet, and then there's this complex bit, and then it ends kind of sour.

Apparently, prisoners in the old settlement-days of Australia were given a spoonful of vinegar a day to make up for the nutritional gaps in convict diet.

Whatever. Call me weird, but nothing's gonna come between me and my spoon of vinegar.

Maybe there's a fifth taste in that balsamic (uname).

Loved the convict fact.

Some people even drink cod oil or something like this.

I heard it's really good for the health. I bought myself a bottle of apple cider vinegar with the intention to drink 1 teaspoon a day but somehow I always choke when I try to swallow. Maybe it's the fumes...

It's still in my pantry, almost untouched, after 2 years!

Adelaide Dupont - Cod Oil! My mum made us drink that everyday when we were kids. Really horrid.
