My First Attempt at Frying

So frying things is harder than it seems, especially when you decide to not quite follow the instructions and just wing it. I wish I had pictures to add to this post but trying to fry chicken turned into kind of an emergency and I really didn’t have time to take pictures while all thisContinue reading “My First Attempt at Frying”

Taking Christmas to the curb

Probably the saddest thing about Christmas is taking everything down which signifies the end of the holiday season. I helped my mom take down all of her Christmas decorations which took us over four hours and we were just exhausted afterwards. There’s nothing I hate more than trying to put the lights away.

Cats don’t like feet

Maybe I’m an anthropology snob but it really gets under my skin when tourists are ignorant of the animal they’re looking at. If you really don’t know anything about animals thenContinue reading “An affordable trip to Africa”
