How I Became Eurolinguiste | A Post in French

Bon, voilà quoi – j’ai enfin décidé d’écrire un article en français. Je discute souvent des langues et des façons de définir le bilinguisme, mais je ne l’ai jamais fait dans une langue autre que l’anglais. J’espère donc que vous apprécierez mon histoire sur comment je suis devenu Eurolinguiste. Quand j’avais onze ans, j’ai commencé à apprendre ma deuxième langue. En fait, c’était ma troisième...

2013 End of Year Goals

I wanted to get a jump start on a few of my goals for this next year, so I decided to map out a few things that I’d love to do before 2014 arrives. My 2013 End of Year Goals 1. Actually complete NaNoWriMo. I participated last year, but didn’t make it past 6,000 words. 2. Meet my Goodreads reading goal for 2013. 3. Release...

Photos from the East of France

This is a post from June 2011 on my previously self-hosted blog. As the close of my academic year abroad approaches, I am confronted with an assortment of feelings and memories regarding my recent experiences and overwhelmed by the very thought of the months to come. Within ten days I will be flying halfway across the world to return “home” and permanently close the living abroad...

Culture & Cuisine | Macarons Making Tips Part II: The Success

If you hadn’t seen my previous post on macarons, the outcome was definitely not a success. They ended up being the flattest macarons ever created.

Culture & Cuisine | The Flattest Macarons Ever

After reading posts from DarlaCooks and Chez Chloe, I felt inspired to make macarons and try my hand (again) at food photography. Although they tasted just like macarons, they were oddly flat. I’m not sure what I did wrong, but after the 5 hours it took me to make these four batches, I had to call it quits. I did eventually end up making proper...

The Truth About Lorem Ipsum

I just could not help myself, being the nerdy person that I am, looking up lorem ipsum – the seemingly random text generated for the text spaces on design templates – to find out its origin. The Truth About Lorem Impsum Lo and behold, to my surprise, lorem ipsum, is not random at all but an excerpt from a book published in 45 BC by...
