Hello world! It feels like eons since I last posted (and I suppose months are equivalent to eons in the blog world). I know, I know...posting regularly was a fail toward the end of 2012 >.< Please forgive me. I strayed from TCP to dedicate my energy to schoolwork, grad school applications, job applications, etc. (did I mention I'm a senior? Scary...). However, I realized that I missed sharing things through my blog. Sure, it takes time but I genuinely enjoy it. Senior year isn't going to slow down anytime soon, but I have made the decision to re-enter the blogging world with a newfound energy and outlook (starting with the recent layout makeover). I've realized that it doesn't have to be all that stressful. I want to make the most of "my" year (2013!) and I look forward to posting again--starting on Monday. Product reviews, tutorials, recipes, and cravings will follow shortly.
