Beginning my Masters

For some reason, I had always been under the impression that doing a Masters wouldn’t be particularly challenging. Oops. I’m only a week into my program and I’m positively delighted at how much work there is to do. There are theoretical readings that really challenge my world view, and thesis preparations that have already begun…

Brunch and Book Club

Questing for fluffy challah, and soaking it in eggy mixture to be fried on the stove brings warm nostalgia to my heart. I can’t say whether it’s the challah, french toast aspect or simply cooking for other people that I love the most – but it’s absolutely my favourite way to start the day. In…
