I wasn't much of a cook in college. In fact, I think I ate spaghetti for every meal during senior year. This pasta overload had a long term effect on my dining habits. To this day, I haven't cooked the "S" word and I'll only eat it when there's no other option. But this presents a conundrum. What to eat when you want something that's easy to make and feels like a grown-up meal? Enter gnocchi -- spaghetti's potato-based cousin. Boil up the little round guys, throw in some cooked mushrooms and some tomato sauce. You'll be convinced you're eating like an adult even though you're not.
WHAT DID I LEARN ABOUT MYSELF?
I learned that I can convince myself of pretty much anything.
HOW DOES THIS HELP ME IN HOLLYWOOD?
Convincing yourself of anything is perhaps the most useful skill an aspiring Hollywood-er can have. For example, if you can convince yourself that you actually enjoy putting your Tisch degree to work as you re-organize the supply closet for little to no pay, you're well on your way to "succeeding" in Hollywood.
