What am I waiting for?

 

Lingering next to an open window, the infant spring echoes the question back to me. For what, or rather for whom, am I waiting? A quiet breeze is all that answers; my room offers no encouragement towards the pondering. All is silent except the little bugs or frogs that are chirping from the pond down the hill. I wonder, why are they chirping? How came they to be so excellent at singing?

new year // same me

hey guys. I know, it’s been a while, and I’ll honestly be surprised if there’s anyone reading this. It’s been a good year for a lot of things, but it was sort of a bad year for blogging. I fell off the radar this summer and then again after attempting to come back. Goals were forgotten, and unfortunately so was my blog. I’m not going to promise that I’ll be back for good, because we all know that’s probably untrue. In all likelihood I’ll forget about this in a few days. But I’d like to hop on one more time before it’s 2020 to say a few things that have been on my mind.

Baking with Cat Ep. 1: Italian Bread

Since I haven’t actually checked my blog/blog email for about 3 months now, I figure this is a good time to bring back one of the founding principles of my old blog: baking. I used to bake almost every Friday, trying out bread making and certain odd recipes. Last year….let’s just say I hardly baked at all, and although that’s probably good for my metabolism, I actually did miss it. For so long baking was such a huge part of my life, and all of a sudden I didn’t even make cookies.

That was the case until I watched the movie “Julie and Julia” and another season of the Great British Bake Off. Let me tell you, that really put the wind back into my sails. I was so inspired to become the best baker there ever was, and even though that’s not really a plausible goal, I’m still gonna do a heck ton of baking.

And, inspired by the story of Julie Powell and her blog, what better thing to do than blog the whole thing.

some vibey songs

Welcome back! Happy Tuesday. I don’t think anyone doesn’t know that I love aesthetic stuff. I always text my friends about songs that are currently making me cry, write depressing poetry, etc., and I’m pretty sure that they’re sick of it. Oh well, I’m not! I love listening to and finding songs that make me nostalgic or get that feeling of Joy that I described here. So, rather than cry to you about how the songs make me feel, how about I share them with you guys too!

i went to DC (back in february)

So…..I don’t think it’s any secret that I keep getting tons of photos and forgetting to post them, so today I decided to go ALL the way back to February and FINALLY post the pictures I took in DC. ( And by the way, for the posts with lots of photos, I’m going to try to say as little as possible. Writing stuff around photos is the reason I never get these posts done :/ ) So here we go!

SCHOOL IS OVER! {& cherry trees!!!}

Hey guys! Welcome back to my half nonexistent blog. Today, we will be talking a little bit about everything, because it’s that kind of day, and I feel like I should explain a little bit.

I’m going to put some pictures of flowers and flowering trees I took at a local park. (Fun fact, the park was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, a very famous landscape architect, who also happened to design Central Park and the Biltmore Estate, to name a few). I unfortunately didn’t get down to the park when the lilacs are in bloom, so that kinda sucks. But cherry blossoms will do just as well!

So, without further ado, let’s get to it!

an overpriced merch photoshoot

Hi guys! How are you this lovely Saturday? I’m doing pretty well (despite the fact that we had a bit of snow this morning after all the flowers have all come out O_O). I think that late-spring snows are here to remind us to appreciate spring while we have it. Or something. *slowly realizes that most people live in places that are warm by the end of February* *starts crying*
