Things Which Have Been Discovered

For those not in the know, I’ve been living on my own this summer. It’s still on-campus housing, but now I have an oven and a living room and have to feed myself so I don’t starve to death. The problem with this, of course, is that I’ve never really cooked anything in my life prior to this.

So, you can imagine my excitement at realizing I can bake delicious food whenever I want.

Since moving in I’ve baked banana bread, peanut butter cookies, pancakes (entirely from scratch) and a failed loaf of bread. When I did the pancakes my friend Jeff came over and showed me how to make a terrifying, unnatural hybrid called a Pancegg. Here’s how you do it:

Pour the pancake batter into a pan and let one side of the pancake cook. Once that side is done, crack an egg into the pan and flip the uncooked half of the pancake on to it. The two of them will fuse together while cooking, creating a terrifying fried egg/pancake combo.

I plan on branching out into different types of cookies soon, on account of cookies being delicious. This is all really cool.


Another thing that has come from me living alone; startling revelations! Specifically, I was lying on this awesome couch I rescued (it had been abandoned despite being perfectly good and comfy) and suddenly I realized:

“Wait, I own my own furniture. I’m an adult now.”

It was a shocking discovery. Especially when I told my friend Beth about it, who’s response was (inexplicably) “You should name the couch.” Before I could stop her, she started calling it Topher.

So, now I’m an adult; I bake my own food and own a couch named Topher. It’s pretty cool.


In other news, I’ve embarked on a massive blog-related project, which hopefully will be ready for you guys soon. Do you feel the excitement?

Editor’s Note: The “massive blog-related project” was of course the move to WordPress, which you’re looking at now. It took months because I’m lazy. Also, my couch ended up at my friend Jeff’s place and I haven’t bothered to get it back. It kind of sucks.
