Lagniappe: Where The Hell Did The Last Three Months Go

Things that have happened since my last post:

  • I graduated university! Finally! I've worked nonstop for two years with a full course schedule every semester to finish my Bachelors degree before 25 passed me by. It's August 30th now and 26 is rounding the corner but WHO CARES! I'm done!

    I also did it magna cum laude, because why *wouldn't* I want to make my life more challenging by writing a thesis during the shortest semester of the year? (Because I'm an obsessive perfectionist and I physically cannot help myself.) I'm a big giant nerd and actually had a lot of fun researching it and learning more about the millennial market group (of which I am a member) and social entrepreneurship ventures HOLY JESUS I sound so nerdy. You can read it here, if you want.
  • I moved out of Gainesville! Finally! No offense to my college town but I'm a city girl at heart and also they call it 'The Swamp' for a reason and WOW it's terrible. I am now officially a resident of New York State in the greater NYC area and plan to begin banging on Bon Appetit's door in short order. A girl can dream. (HR people, if you're reading this, I promise I can write without curse words!)
  • I went on a roadtrip with my best friend and our two dogs! We hit all the best restaurants in Savannah, Charleston, Asheville, and the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill triangle. (Pics on my Insta.)


  • I collapsed in a heap! It was difficult to give myself permission to feel burn out from working my ass off nonstop for two years, but let me tell you, burn out is a very real thing. I feel the mojo coming back though and am really excited about getting back to writing and working. MONNEEEYYYYY!

Coming up: recipe for Swedish meatballs, recipe for crispy chicken with lemon and oregano, recipe for shepherd's pie, restaurant reviews from Savannah, Asheville, and Bay City NY, and more shit I love. Like YOU! Thanks for reading.
