San Diego has these places I affectionately call Liquor Delis and they’re the weirdest thing. As the name implies, they’re liquor stores that are . . . also delis. Maybe you grew up with this and it’s totally normal for you, but to me this is about as weird as the gas station in North Carolina that sells fried chicken (the best fried chicken ever, incidentally). And even weirder than these places existing is the fact that they’re my new favorite thing.

You know that feeling when you have a big cup of coffee, all the time in the world, and you walk into your favorite store to just BROWSE leisurely?

Tres Leches Carrot Cake (and 5 Easy Steps to Get a Therapist)
Finding mental healthcare is so daunting, especially for the people who need it most. I’m not an expert — just a person who has had to find mental healthcare in lots of places lots of times — but it occurred to me that if I could make the nebulous, scary task of finding a therapist a little more concrete, it might be helpful.
There are lots of things that make this task hard. First, you may not know quite what you need and even if you do, you may not know quite where to find it. You may not be sure what to do if you do find it. When I have this many question marks, I tend to procrastinate instead of taking action, even if I’m suffering. Hopefully, these few steps will reduce the number of question marks you have about taking the first step toward finding a therapist.
