I don’t have an update for you yet, although I did make something awesome this week that I’ll be sharing this weekend. It’s my fall break this weekend, which means that I’ll be baking all the things (and many of them will be pumpkin, yum!). Knowing this, however, I started thinking about something I’ve only heard a little about: NaBloPoMo (Not NaNoWriMo, which I already knew about). I was hoping that it, too, was in November, and therefore that I hadn’t missed the boat. Turns out that it’s every month you want it to be (which I have to say is kind of lame…I think you should blog every day if you want, but NaBloPoMo should totally be a concentrated effort to make you do something like that). Anyway, the point here is that I’m very interested in trying NaBloPoMo. November is going to be crazy, it’s true, and I’m having a hard time believing that I can stock up that many recipes and pictures – but if I started now, I think that it would be possible. I’d have a week at home in which I’d be cooking and baking like crazy (the joys of Thanksgiving!) and I’ll have papers and projects, and Harry Potter premiers the night before I fly home (first all-nighter anyone? Don’t make fun of me for never having pulled an all-nighter. Yes, I’m twenty, and yes, I have a GPA which I am very proud of, and no, I’ve never pulled an all-nighter. I’m a half-marathoner! We need our sleep!), and all sorts of crazy. But, on the other hand, it will probably be dreary here. La Nina is not my friend. She brings us cold, wet weather, and I live in Washington (admittedly, I live east of the Cascades, so my complaints are less than those of others to the west, but nonetheless, it’s still wet here), which means it will be really cold and really wet. I may have a lot of quality time indoors. And my midterms will be done by the end of October (my impending oral midterm in Political Ecology [which is done in groups, fyi] is terrifying), so it’s quite possible that this could be done. Why not try, write right? (Yes, I am pun-ny).
I just realized that I’ve never done a post like this on here – hi, I’m a professed spaz. And I use parenthesis a lot when I write like this, primarily because I’m trying to rationalize to myself that this is not insane and that it could be done. And I’m going to try and believe it!
Anyway…as an end to this: I hope you all have a lovely weekend. I will see you (certainly) on Sunday, and perhaps before and after. I’ll be bringing the goodies!
