Finding peace in the kitchen

Pals, I've been stuck in a rut. With no routine and a fairly stressful deadline not that far away, I've found my mental health receding. Despite the fact I'm on course for a decent mark in my degree and almost at a point where I (hopefully) never have to study ever again - hallelujah! -… Continue reading Finding peace in the kitchen

Finally feeling motivated and inspired

It’s the middle of July. University finished a month ago and I have no classes again until September when I move to Spain. Naturally, I have found myself going through somewhat of a lull.
