Click on the thumbnails for the full version, or here for the photoset of the ones I’ve processed so far, or here for a slideshow.

I’m thinking about putting together some kind of photoessay at some point. Until then, please enjoy! :-)

Why, as a vegetarian, I don’t lose weight

I don’t cook, people. I don’t bake, either. All of my attempts at becoming a world-renowned (or at least apartment building-renowned) chef have ended in a call to Pizza Hut. However, I’m totally going to make this tonight.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks!: Peach Crisp with Maple Cream Sauce. Brace Yourselves, People.

(In other news, I’m back from the Philippines—hooray! More from me to come.)

The Secret Life of Gummy Bears

My friends, I’m not dead. After another long semester, my penultimate at the University of Illinois at Chicago and which earned me a spot on the Dean’s List, I have been resting and searching for something appropriate with which to return to the Flock. Thus, I give you The Secret Life of Gummy Bears:

I’m not dead, BTW—just a little overwhelmed with school at the moment. Not book. Not book at all.

Smash your enemy’s castle

More from MAKE:

With a trebuchet, you can smash your enemy’s castle or at least fling the heads of enemy spies into their courtyard. In the old days, the most important metric of a trebuchet is that it can fire farther than your enemy’s archers can shoot their arrows!

Make your own trebuchet here. Totally f-ing book, dude.

I should have voted for this one
