Yes, you read right: when I am in school, I feel like I'm a little bit less than a person. My room is a mess, I get exempt from washing dishes, and the phone doesn't ring because my friends know of my semester-long hibernation from which I cannot be awoken. Those are not the traits of a full person, are they? Who gets exempt from dish-washing? Why does my room get to be messy? How come I can't be surrounded by the love of my friends? Ah, yes, because I have to study, and write papers, and attend lectures. Awesome.
But now... oh yes... I am done school. Maybe not forever, but with my last exam of my Bachelor's degree written, and my last essay completed (as of this morning at 1 a.m., minus the editing that it definitely needs), I get to be a person again! I get to wash dishes (joy of joys!)! I get to clean my room (amazing!)! And, best of all, I get to alert my friends and family of my reappearance out of hibernation!
All of this doesn't mean that I've stayed out of the kitchen, though. As many people who list cooking and baking among their hobbies know, cooking up a hearty, wholesome meal is therapy in itself. Even with deadlines approaching, I made sure to spend a decent amount of time in the kitche. And, thanks to my duty as a Happy Herbivore recipe tester, I had plenty of excuses to take a break from studying.
So, below I have a few photos to share of my culinary
Ok, I'm done. Here are photos.
Enjoy :) And please allow me to take this opportunity to wish you a very happy holiday. May you all be blessed with happiness, good health, laughter, warmth, and love.
