On Friday night, my little sister graduated from high school. I feel so old….imagine how my mom must feel! I kid! I saw at least half of the people I graduated with three years ago (THREE YEARS?!), as well as some teachers I had seven or eight years ago! So weird. Anyways, with graduation comes […]

I SURVIVED! Yes indeedy, I made it through this monster of a semester! It’s not quite over as I have yet to see my grades for half of my classes, but that’s beside the point…summer is here! Yeah, yeah, I have to take two classes in June and July, but hopefully they’ll be significantly less […]

Howdy! Sorry for being MIA….I had 2 tests and 2 lab reports last week, so I basically went stress crazy. Good times, right? No. At least the week is over, though, and the end of the semester is near! Unfortunately I have to get through 4 finals first, but whatever. Although the majority of last […]

How is it already April?! Geeze, it seems like the older you get, the faster time flies…and I’m only 20!!! AHH! Anyways, at least summer is almost here, even though I have to take two classes this summer (Chem 2 and Biology – ew). I signed up for my classes this week – next semester […]

Going away to college is a funny thing. A lot of times I’ll come home and notice small changes like a new kitchen decoration, leftovers of a new dinner that I’ve never tried, an entirely new back porch….but none of these changes bother me. I like new kitchen decor, I don’t discriminate when it comes […]

Hello, all! Let me give you a recap of my life since the last time I posted… 1. Chemistry2. Math3. Using a tilt skillet and an industrial convection oven to make enough Tortilla Egg Casserole for 25+ people4. My first lab in the dining hall – props to food service workers, seriously. I made 4 […]

I know, I’ve been slacking in the posting department. So much for updating more often in 2011… And I haven’t even started school yet. Tomorrow I will be celebrating my third snow day of 2011. In case you didn’t know, the SE US was annihilated by intense snow and ice. Well, to me it’s intense […]

And just like that, Christmas was over. Five days ago. All of the decorations are boxed up for another year (sadness), our tree has been dismantled and thrown into the compost pile (after standing alone in a de-decorated living room for two days), and the only Christmas leftovers that remain are a few dried out […]

I have baked four different kinds of cookies, one batch of BBQ meatballs, a pot of homemade mashed potatoes, and TWO CANS of baked beans in the past 24 hours. Excluding the cans of baked beans, that’s a lot of cooking/baking. It’s also been really fun (aside from the minor pout fest I threw last […]

AHHH Christmas is SO close!! Like, four and a half days away close!! My mom teases me a lot for feeling this way, but I always start to get just a tiny bit sad when it gets close to Christmas because that means it’s almost over! I love this season and I hate to see […]
