Guys.  I’m dying over here.

I’m swamped with sooooo much work (big/huge/ginormous emphasis on the SOOOO) and I’m about to break…  break eighty chocolate bars and shove them in my face while re-watching all seven seasons of Parks and Rec in my comfy pajamas and puffy slippers while I cry and cry and procrastinate FOREVA.

Okay, I won’t do that.  I have some self control (and dignity)  😉


I’ve been trucking along with school and all I can think about is graduation.

I’ve been working hard on something super exciting.  Wait, SHHHH…  did someone say, “A SECOND COOKBOOK?!?”  Hell to the yes.  More info to come later when it gets closer to publication.

I’m a bundle of nerves because I have no idea what lies ahead.  I started this blog with the goal of becoming a Registered Dietician but now I realize that’s not for me.  Now that I’m just within arms reach of graduation, I’m freaking out.  What to do??  I don’t even know what state I’ll be living in!  Any suggestions are welcome my dear  :)
