When All Else Fails

there’s always food porn

I don’t know what’s wrong with me guys.

I seriously love life so much that it keeps me awake at night.

Last night, I found myself WIDE awake from 2:30 am right until 4:30 am. Reason? My mind wouldn’t shut off! I was so incredibly excited for my first day of classes today that it was impossible for me to sleep! Luckily, I managed to fall asleep by 4:30 until 6:00 am. I wish I could have slept a but longer, but once I saw that the clock said 6:00 I was wide awake once again; eager to start a new day, new term, new classes!

Today was an amazing day Smile My excitement was necessary; however, it is leaving me feeling incredibly tired right now – I have actually been ready for bed since about 4:30 PM.

Since I am so tired, today’s post is short and sweet. I’ll give you a taste of my day through some pictures that I took during my Food Science lab. It was “fish” and “deep frying” day today, so we made all sorts of fun dishes and meals!

This was a glorious dish, but I think it had a lot to do with my expertise at baking salmon Winking smile (Ok, I am not an expert, but I seem to nail it every time! hehe!)
