Busy Bee: A Whirlwind Wrap-up of the Past Month

It’s so unfortunate that whenever I get really stressed out by work or school, I can’t make the time for my favorite de-stressing activity. There is no time like the day before a deadline that I would rather be whipping up some sweet Honey Frosting or carefully watching over a pot while making Candied Citrus Peels.

Sadly, when I have a fast approaching deadline, all of my energy and attention is directed toward cranking out my paper or article and making it the best it can be.

More often than not, my “free” time in the past couple of months has been dedicated to reading and writing assignments, leading baking and innovating in the kitchen to take a back seat. When I finally walk through my front door at the end of a long day, I settle down with a bowl of cereal, having made it through the rest of the day subsiding on caffeine and determination. Ah, the life of a graduate student.
