Donuts and sushi are two of my favorite foods, but I never thought to combine them until I saw this photo of Psycho Donuts’ “Psycho Sushi.” Unfortunately there is no raw fish in these donuts, only dough and frosting made to look like sashimi and caviar, but now I have a mad simultaneous craving for sushi and donuts.

For the past few years, Nick worked at the cheese counter of an upscale Portland grocery store. Like most things in our lives, his job was fine, but it wasn’t spectacular. We felt stagnant in many ways, like we were passively living a life that had been set out for us, rather than choosing the life we wanted.
