For a long time, I have had the dream of making this fire-breathing dragon cake. I decided that the combination of two of my best friends' birthdays was the perfect reason to finally make it. I thought it was a lost cause when the cakes stuck to the pans, but eventually got everything to turn out okay! I love baking but don't get to do it often, so I was happy with the results!

On Tuesday, I received an e-mail saying my work was accepted to a lit/art journal that I submitted to last September! I had nearly forgotten about my submission, and any time over the past few months I had remembered it, I simply figured my work was not accepted since I hadn't heard back. In my modern instant world, I tend to forget that some things just take time...lots of time. The journal is published by the University of Minnesota and these are the photographs I will have in it:

Then, as I found out last Saturday, two of my three entries made it into my department's annual Student Competitive, which was juried this year by Kerry Skarbakka.
It's been such an exhausting and rewarding week! The weekend will be filled with homework, a little volunteering, and seeing my family for the first time in a month. I'd love to slow down...but then again, my life is pretty exciting, and why would I ever want to trade that in?
