It might be the AMAZING dinner I just made or the fact that today I realized I have 76 days until I walk across the stage in the Hearnes Center and say goodbye to Mizzou..either way I have decided to reboot my blog to continue exercising my writing skills in the hopes that this will help me actually get a job. (Or is this just another way for me to avoid actually applying for said jobs…the world will never know).
Last semester, I detailed my various grievances with the world in what I believe to be snarky yet very humorous posts while also sampling different cocktails, wines and beers. This semester, I will continue with my commentaries but this time, I will share my favorite recipes that I’ve been whipping up in the kitchen. I am so excited to share with you (the vast, deep void of the internet) the delicious foods I’ve been trying to make. And I’m sure all my social media followers will be equally happy that I am no longer spamming them with photos of all of my meals every week. (sorry guys)
So with that, welcome to my latest blog series! I hope you enjoy all the cooks and looks that I serve up for the rest of this semester, Au Revoir!

I realized after a conversation with my loving and supporting mother, who has already read my first post, that I might need to define a part of my title for the “older than millennial crowd” -her words, not mine.
According to the ever reputable Urban Dictionary: 1. Serving looks means looking good or, 2. Giving someone a dirty look. For example:
I couldn’t resist the Harry Potter reference
My interpretation of this saying will be a bit more conceptual and not necessarily just about physical appearance. With this new blog, I will both praise and rebuke whatever is happening at that given time. This is an attempt to be more positive, I promise -but sometimes you just can’t let things go so be prepared for more angst-ridden arguments.

With yesterday being #InternationalWomensDay, although in my world every day is women’s day, I thought wanted to take some time to highlight some of the most inspiring women in our world today. These women come from different back rounds, different places and have different missions but they are all fighting the good fight and influencing so many people, myself included.
All of these women are kicking a** in their respective fields and inspiring so many future female leaders while doing so. They are serving up some major life-inspiring looks in the face of adversity and doubt and continue to persevere and pursue their passions and I am here for it.
