(Friday) Up To Speed



What’s New:

Black, it turns out, is the new black. Every other color has decided to stop trying to be “the new black” and just be themselves. And I’m also leaving for a trip with one of my classes to the Dominican Republic tomorrow at 4:00AM. Surprise! No posts from me this week; my apologies.

What’s Not New:

You should still try to send a “Thank You” letter no later than 48 hours after the event, and you should still never stick a cat in a washing machine.

What I’ve Posted:

How Do You Like ‘Dem Apples

“I Didn’t Say ‘Cake’…I Said Let them Eat ‘Steak'”

You’ll have to wait and see!

And I Leave You With These Quotes:

“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.” ~ Martin Buber

“There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception” –Aldous Huxley

“It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to, has power over you, if you allow it.” –Anonymous


(Wednesday) Up To Speed



Some of you many indeed be wondering why I haven’t published a Bucket List post recently (or very much at all in the past week or so). Many of you have probably also been wondering what sort of edible concoction ganache is. Well, today is your lucky day, because even if you haven’t been wondering either of those things at all, I’m going to drop some knowledge on you that you’ll thank me for later (I’ve often found that when people say “You’ll thank me later” they often do get thanked later, although much later and for something completely unrelated, like holding open a door).

Up to Speed


Hey Y’all,

I’ve decided to try out something new: the Sunday Up To Speed Post. (You can tell this is going spectacularly well for me since it’s already Monday). After seeing Lindsey’s Bloggin’ Recaps from The Day Dreaming, Candy Eating, Red Headed Bookworm, I decided that this was something that I must do! So, to follow in her footsteps, I’m going to set aside a post each week to let you know what came out this week, what will be coming out next week (let’s face it I’m not that organized so your guess is as good as mine), and I’ll also take the time to share a couple awesome posts from other bloggers.

My World:

It’s the start of my second week back at college, so we can only hope that I will maintain some sort of consistency in my posts. Between moving in, getting back into the crazy busy swing of things, and leaving my notes about my trip at home (that’s right, I took notes) we’ll see how I do with that.

What I Posted:

I’m Feeling Triumphant. Let’s Make an Arc.

Sacre Bleu! I mean, Sacre Coeur!
