Five Semesters Down

After one Tuesday and one Thursday of classes, I’ll be done with my fifth semester of college. It’s my first semester without any finals, and I’m going to do something special to commemorate it (but mostly so I don’t feel lazy while my friends are studying): random acts of cookies.

I love baking Christmas cookies, so I’m going to make batches of my favorite ones and give them to stressed students. I’m not sure yet if I’ll stick to my friends or offer them to strangers (which sounds creepy), but either way, I’ll be keep you posted on how this project turns out. Email me at nsanluis@gmail.com if you would like a batch!

Baking always takes my mind off school. Making banana bread or a dozen bagels helps me relax and fuels me through intense study sessions. What do you do to take your mind off rough weeks?
