Anyways, it’s been a pretty great week. On Monday I celebrated my friend Ruth’s birthday (which is actually today- happy birthday, Ruth!).
On Tuesday we finally got the cutest little Christmas tree, so it now feels like Christmas. (I told my friend Danae on the phone yesterday that if it’s childish to love Disneyland and need a tree for it to feel like Christmas, then I’m such a child.)
On Wednesday my mom and I did some secret Christmas stuff.
Yesterday I mailed a package home to our family, trying not to think about the fact that in 6 days they’ll all be gathered together and we won’t, because that’s a rather sad thought.
Today I’m making ice cream, etc. etc.
Because this was such a busy week, I didn’t spend a ton of time with my face behind this screen, so the links will be rather short. Hopefully you will still find something educational/useful/amusing among them.

Basically, the ocean is fascinating.
“Governments around the world said, ‘We are not going to allow this… because it hasn’t yet been proven safe.’ We [The United States] said, ‘It hasn’t been proven dangerous, so we’ll allow it.'” Such an irresponsible approach. Food production in our country is so messed up.
These tips are applicable anywhere, year-round :)
Good, balanced holiday eating advice.
Blind taste tests, forever.
