Yesterday I turned 2️⃣5️⃣ and drank lots of wine, ate lots of cake, took a math test, wore a crown D made me that had Hermione & Buffy Summers on it, meditated for the first time in 4ever, & my car insurance immediately went down 30% 👑 Feeling v v v v thankful for all the love & birthday wishes from friends/family both near and far 💖🎉
The sweetest (amirite) birthday cake from David's sister 💖 And yup, today I am a quarter of a century old! 😳
We've been watching @britishbakeoff and decided to make eclairs (under the guidance of D's pastry chef sister), but we forgot that baking anything in Colorado is the worst! So now we're dipping un-puffy Pâte à Choux in pastry cream & chocolate ganache... not gonna lie it's pretty delicious 👌🏽👍🏽 #deconstructedeclairs #whoops
Get yourself some friends who will spend an hour helping you try to get your car key out of a storm drain 🙏🏽💖😂 (major thank you to @colorado_springs_fire for swooping in and saving the day!) #type2fun
Happy International Women's Day/Day Without a Woman! Thankful for all the wonderful, strong women in my life, both near and far. I didn't work, but I did have class, and had a wonderful discussion about women in STEM. Empowering girls & women to get an education (esp in fields that are traditionally male, & esp WOC) is one of my great passions, so it felt right to have class today 👩🏽🏫💪🏽❤️
MORE 👏🏽 R 👏🏽 RATED 👏🏽 SUPERHERO 👏🏽 MOVIES 👏🏽 PLEASE. I saw LOGAN last night and it's real real good, guys. It's an elegiac, Western-y, wonderful send-off to a character I fell in love with on the big screen 17 years ago (yup, 17... HOW?!), and I think it's one of the very very few movies I've seen that breaks the unwritten rule that the 3rd film in a franchise is always the worst. Bring your tissues.
Wish I could have gotten around to reading more books this past month, but I was really engrossed in using that red pen to underline/write in the margins of 'Racism Without Racists.' Everyone should read this book, and it's especially important when you have discussions with a certain old white dude who is "the least racist person" and also "didn't know that you're not supposed to call black people Negroes anymore" (????????!?!?!?????) 🙃 #booksireadinFebruary
David & I made mozzarella tonight and it turned out really really tasty!! We made over a pound, but between snacking + pizza we've already eaten it all 😅 (pro tip: @kalonasupernatural cream-top milk is great for making cheese with 🧀)
I was gonna clean our room & finally put my new shoe rack together, but instead I took myself on a solo movie date to see GET OUT and damn am I glad I did that. I loved it, v creepy/funny/on point/important/relevant...go see it!!!
Shoutout to the ignorant white dude on campus the other day who I overheard telling his friend "I don't understand why people are so upset about Trump, it's not like the things he's doing will actually affect anyone. Everyone is just overreacting." 🙃 (I did butt in and attempt to offer another perspective, ya girl got opinions & data to share) #protecttranskids #womensrightsarehumanrights #blacklivesmatter
