Back under construction. Once the projects and zombies die down a little bit, I’ll be back into posting mode.

New year, new priorities. (With a bit ‘o Biscotti.)

I’m in the process reviving my food blog, I’m bringing my journal back to life again, and taking a new position with the college. Quite a number of things I’ve been straightening out are finally coming to fruition. (Hooray!) Let’s see, what is there of note on the homefront… Now that I think about it, not a whole lot, which is incredibly nice. Things are going quite smoothly, and after coming back from a holiday full of visiting around, I’m well due for some nice R&R back in my little apartment. I’m sure I’ll fill you all in in the coming posts. 🙂

Alright, so with this post, I have to chat a bit about Biscotti. If you’ve ever met me, you’d probably figure out I’m a bit of a tea and scone freak. I love the dense, hard-packed feeling of a scone. However, especially around the holidays, I have to trade in my love of scones for Biscotti.

If you’re curious about recipes, and where I found these particularly delicious examples, feel free to comment or message me, and I’ll make sure you find your dream biscotti.

Stay hungry!



Just because.

Man, have I been slacking on the blog front.

Ow.

Rock Hudson, about to find out what February feels like from James Dean.

Anyways, I thought I’d get a kick in the pants (or punch in the groin.) and write a little bit with onset of warmer weather. February seems to always have been the odd-month-out. I’m pretty sure something that comes with this month does something to the chemical balance in my brain, seeing as I always feel like I’ve been donkey-kicked in the chest by the end of it. Onwards and upwards, as I say! We shall not tarry here!

So, this all brings me to my next point. Seeing as my internship is coming to an end this May, I’ve decided to take it upon myself and adventure. I’ve called my friend Kasey in Hawaii, and (hopefully.) in the next couple of days I’ll be able to get a hold of her again. I’m going to give living in Hawaii a shot, and I’m going to try and live on a boat. (Or shoddy apartment, either way.) However, this might raise a few eyebrows for a couple of reasons:

  • I know nothing of boating. (except being on the rowing team in high school, but that doesn’t count.)
  • Odin needs to find some kind of employment whilst over there. (Blergh, I hate being an adult.)

So I might swing a job on the main island in the University of Hawaii, or just bum it out for a year or so. So far, my future is a bit of a blank check. Tentative plans all around, but adventures nonetheless.

 

Fortune.

Got to start somewhere, right?

On that note, I’ve also thrown in a couple of applications to LEGO in hopes of getting employment for their corporate site. (Since it’s been my dream to work with LEGO since, well, I don’t know, FOREVER.) This application is a bit of transition from the Hawaii idea, but it’s also a part of my new “get-up-and-go-adventure” attitude. I needed a jump-start, so I thought to myself “Well, I haven’t done anything ridiculous in a while, so this would be a good place to start.” I mean, why not learn a new language and work for an international company that makes creative toys? Hell, I’ve only been wanting to work for Lego since I became acquainted with them.

Anyways, so the idea so far is to throw in a couple of applications to get on Lego’s radar in hopes of becoming seen as an “interested” applicant. Meanwhile, I learn some languages (Spanish and Dutch primarily.) while I work on polishing up the ole’ resumé while I work a tech job here in Ohio for the next year or so. Fingers crossed, things will start pointing in the right direction. 🙂

 

Onwards!

Onwards!

Things have been interesting as of late.

Ok, maybe not that interesting, but still. (Who doesn’t like cartoons?)

The first couple weeks of school are finally finishing up, and students are gearing up for the weekend. It’s been strange being back on campus, that’s for sure. While I get to see all of my friends in the younger classes, I still have to detach myself from the campus life. It’s not like I feel like I’m that that creepy guy that graduated forever ago that still comes to parties, but at the same time, it’s slightly awkward for me to be on campus. I’ve moved on from College. I am no longer a student. For the first time in practically seventeen years, I didn’t go to school on August 3oth. It was incredibly strange, but freeing at the same time. I mean, I’ve got friends on the campus that I’d like to hang out with, but they’ve already got their own agendas and groups of friends to hang out with that doesn’t really coincide with my own work schedule.

Calm.

Calm.

Moving on, we’ve got food porn this week! Are you excited? I am.

Another sunrise to greet the day!

Day 27: Provisions seem to be modest supply, but morale is low. The crew, namely myself, have been stuck in the middle of the doldrums for the past couple of days. I’m not sure if it’s the tail-end of the weekend that’s been dogging myself down, or the fact that we’ve got about a weeks worth of storms heading our way, and I feel that I haven’t been writing enough. This too, shall pass.
