Wake Me Up When September Ends

Wake Me Up When September Ends

Give me a woman who loves beer and I will conquer the world.

My apologies for not posting for an eternity and a half, things have been a bit crazy here!

Our first review was this past week for architecture, so of course I spent long hours in studio. However, I am extraordinarily proud of the work I turned out (for once), and my reviews went well! In celebration of finishing round one, our professor took us to to Skovshoved (an adorable former fishing village on the coast) to take part in a communal dinner with the local community. We gave presentations to the locals on vernacular architecture and discussed possible ways to implement a traditional fish smokery in hopes of bringing more tourists to the area. After that, we were somehow roped into a political panel on how to keep young international talent in Denmark. Odd, yet flattering.

Most importantly, though: I went to Oktoberfest!

If Copenhagen were a person, that person would be generous, beautiful, elderly, but with a flair. A human being that has certain propensities for quarrelling, filled with imagination and with appetite for the new and with respect for the old – somebody who takes good care of things and of people.

This week, I’ve learned that posting once a week is nowhere near enough to detail life here (but does that mean I’m going to post more? Probably not.)

Stress Baking is the Best Baking

This summer went by in a blur! Last Friday was my last day working at Mod, and I was kind of sad to go. I had some absolutely amazing coworkers and the work we did was actually super fun (when the deadlines were reasonable). I’m going to miss it there.

In honor of my last day, I decided to make a little something to bring into the office: roasted apricot and basil scones (and sangria). Read More

A Not-So-Novel Post: My Summer Reads

A Not-So-Novel Post: My Summer Reads

Anyone who knows me has some story about how I devoured a monster of a book in an illogically short amount of time (or spent an entire lake trip locked inside with my nose in a book). Since going to college, I’ve fallen off the bookworm wagon a decent bit, and Audible has been the only real way I’ve had time to finish any book. However, I’ve vowed to consume as many pages as I can this summer, so here’s 6 books that are on my to-read shelf:
