Rice and Ramen

You know what has been one of my favorite items to have at college?

My rice cooker.

As I type this, I’m actually eating rice and studying thermodynamics. It’s a party.

I enjoy making rice… it’s easy and cheap. A good college student meal. Like ramen noodles. Haha

I always have a bottle of low sodium soy sauce on hand but you can also add some seaweed, vegetables, fried egg, ect. You can pretty much add whatever you like to rice. It’s a pretty blank slate.

I’ve just finished my first full week of my 4th year of college. I can already tell it’s going to be a… busy semester.

I’m excited and slightly dreading it all at the same time.

Another semester… here I come. Or should I say… here you come.





Welcome Freshman!

My brother moved in to UNCA yesterday. It’s his first year of college. He’s also going to be doing the Mechatronics Engineering program here.

Welcome to college, little freshman.

May you have many adventures like….

Trying to put fitted sheets on a bunked bed…

Actually winning a game of pool in the Game Room (because of skill or accident)…

Learning your lesson about doing your assignments last minute…

Trying something in the cafeteria even though it is a little sketchy…

Getting a little lost on an ART bus adventure (not too lost, stay safe)…

And many other exciting adventures! Haha

May you all have a wonderful year! You can do it!


Caution: A Super Yummy Mess


Yesterday, we made biscuit doughnuts!

Or doughnuts made out of biscuit dough…

You can make these with just some canned biscuit dough, oil, and cinnamon sugar.

First, you lay out your biscuit dough and use a little cookie cutter to take holes out of the middle of the dough. You then place the doughnut into hot oil and let it fry (you can do this with the doughnut holes too). After it is fried on both sides, remove the dough and set it aside (we used a plate with a paper towel). After they cool just a tad, dip both sides of the doughnut in cinnamon sugar and TADA! DOUGHNUTS!

I must say… they were pretty yummy. They definitely satisfied the craving I have had lately for fried dough rings! Haha. Just make sure you eat them over a plate or outside because the cinnamon sugar will get everywhere.

We used canned flaky biscuit dough (sourdough). We stayed away from “buttered” dough but I’m sure that would work too. Two bigger sized cans made about 16 doughnuts/doughnut holes.

Also, make sure your oil is hot enough to fry… the first doughnut hole we tried got super flaky and fell apart while it was cooking. Oops.

Another successful, yummy experiment!

Ignore the screwdriver in the background… I used those to replace my laptop keyboard and forgot to move them…

Bullet Journal: Month Two

This is just a summary of how my bullet journal has evolved over the last month. This is my second month using a bullet journal and it’s already evolved quite a bit from when I first started.

For example, I have started to include more quotes throughout the month… the above picture is one example.

This months “theme” was banners and ribbons. I tried to do a little more than just plain  colored boxes everyday.

Although I soon grew tired of drawing/coloring in a new banner everyday and decided to go with this layout for the month of August. Yes, my cursive got a little funny for some of the headings. Oh well! The mistakes make it mine.

I really like this layout so far because it allows me to draw it all out the weekend before and then I just have to fill it in as the week progresses. This also leaves me room to write about my day or add colorful quotes. After school starts back up, this blank space will probably be use to write down upcoming homework assignments/meetings.

As you can see, it also has a place to write down things I’m grateful for that day. I started this midway through July and its proved to be nice to list off some positives everyday. This also has a mini tracker for the amount of water I’ve had for the day. Hopefully this will work better than my other full month tracker that crashed and burned last month…


The following is very similar to my June and July events page. I have really enjoyed having this page at the start of every month. This allows me to list out all the events and appointments planned for the month.

Last but not least… this is my last page for July. I decided to add a little more color. I have blurred out the top of the page.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone.
