Beginning Again

Happy New Year!

After a ridiculously long hiatus, I’m back!  The last month and a half has been very busy and filled with the strangest holidays I have ever had.  Although I spent the vast majority of my break with my family, I managed to see most of my best friends (in addition to most of the state of California- from LA to San Francisco).

I’m now back in Glasgow trying to get back into the swing of being chilly.  I’ve come equipped with foot warmers and those wonderful fleece wellington liners for warmer feet and some new sweaters.  It was 2 degrees today (35 for those of you on Fahrenheit) and I’m embracing it. Tomorrow is supposed to be 2 again with a chance of snow.  I’ve spent enough time outside recently to appreciate the cold and relative clear, but I am not planning on being out much this weekend.  I’m tucking in for some serious Skype sessions and working on my thesis up the wazoo.  I have a plan now, which is SO exciting.  I’m definitely ready to start on a more productive and procedured journey.  I have about 9 months to finish my research.  Only 22 films, 23 novels, and numerous television shows to go.  In addition to at least one critical book on my subject, one master’s thesis, and heaven only knows how many articles.

All of this makes me want to bake.  My boyfriend’s mother bought me a loaf pan for Christmas; thus, pumpkin bread is in my future.  Now to find a suitable recipe…
