It's been such a fulfilling journey over the last 4 years:
-I applied to HSU as an Art major (even having never taken an art class in my life);
-Started as a History major (whoever thought that was a good idea was crazy);
-Almost switched to French (but let's be honest, that would NOT have worked out well);
-Came to the decision between Art and Anthropology (once again, what was I thinking?);
-Finally saw the light and switched to Anthropology! (with added on minors of Art and French).
After all that, my first year of Anth classes was probably the most difficult year of my life, but so worth it! I reluctantly and nervously took Ethnography the spring of my junior year, and it quickly became one of the best experiences of my life, right after TA-ing for the class the whole year after.
Anyway, for graduation I decided to try making grad cap cupcakes (trying to be consistent with my food theme going on here), and well, they didn't come out as cute as I was hoping... But they tasted good, and in the end that's all that matters, right?
They're Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with caramel caps! Next time I'm going to try adding some spice to the cupcake part, not just the frosting...
Well anyway, I'm in the midst of reading some Sidney Mintz, so hopefully I'll have a blurb up about that soon!
