I haven't written here in quite a while, although I promised myself I would every week. Eventually, I got a push when I saw my friend's post on Mischievous Sweethearts, our blog that's been asleep for an year or so. Some things have changed since then, many have remained gloriously the same. I got in for PhD and last semester I taught the seminars to Introduction to Sociology, while this semester I'm doing Statistics and Social Policy. It's pretty much easier than I imagined and I really like teaching, although I always had my doubts about that. I haven't really been to my classes, as they overlap with the teaching, but there's time to catch up.
My baby boy and I, hopefully joined by many friends, are going to quite a bunch of concerts this summer. That list I had in my head when I was in high school of the bands I desperately wanted to see will almost be completely crossed over! Cool thing is the Transilvania Tattoo Expo falls right in between the festivals we already got tickets to, so June is going to be a blast for me. I love it we get to have so much fun together and I can almost touch the awesome summer coming our way.
Oh, what else? I've been cooking this and that, but not nearly as much as I wish to. However, I'm training to become a muffin master. Cupcakes will be the next natural step and in-between, I might try sponge cakes as well, my grandma's specialty. I always thought baking was hard and not fun at all, since I've always been more of a souffle and casserole kind of home chef. But we get along just fine, cake batters and me. I know I've said I'll be posting recipes tens of times, but maybe one day I can curve my excitement while cooking and take some pics and notes.
I have a new photo blog as well, I only started a month ago. The idea was to post a photo every day of something that made my day better. I've already slacked off a couple of times, but I keep posting and that's a good sign. So I'll make a couple of banners here with links to Mischievous and my Tumblr blog. Other than that... There's plenty of time to write, I guess, I just find excuses to spend my time watching TV shows and reading A Song of Ice and Fire as if it were "crack on paper".
