Hello World!

Hello world! Pardon my tardiness. These past two weeks have been quite a blur; sometimes I don’t know why I take on so many things to do. Nonetheless, it’s been a pretty rewarding two weeks. Next week, I’ll be away from school because I will be working the National High School Model United Nations conference in New York City, so I’ve been pretty busy this week trying to get the things in order before I have to leave. I’m a little scared for my impending doom—of homework—when I get back, which was a struggle last year after I staffed the same conference. However, because I let my professor know at the beginning of the semester, I am confident that they will be understanding and accommodative of my difficult game of catch-up, like the were last spring.

I’ve been running around campus trying to prepare for a concert that WAMH, the college’s radio station, will be having later this month. In fact, I just came back from a meeting with the student government’s budgetary committee, with full funding for the concert—somewhere around $10,000! Thanks Amherst! Shameless plug: Blood Diamonds will be performing on the evening of Friday, March 29th at Seelye Ballroom!

Last week, I cooked dinner (I cook every two weeks at the Zü, the cooperative house on campus), and made enough food to feed an army; we have been having next year’s potentials over for dinner so they can see what it’s like to live at the Zü. My cooking partner and I made a sweet mango and apricot mixed green salad, seitan sloppy joes, rosemary potato wedges, blanched broccoli sautéed with roasted garlic and hoison sauce, and my boyfriend’s mom’s ‘cookie cake’. Here’s a picture of it; it’s basically all butter and sugar, but it was absolutely amazing. The whole cookie sheet of cake was gone within a night! I’ll be sure to update you guys with what I make whenever I make dinner!
