endings and loose ends

Last night, I went to dinner at the home of my Documentary Film Production professor and was fed delicious steak and a lot of goat cheese, among other things. This event marked the last official professor interaction that I had as a Haverford student. How simultaneously terrifying and satisfying.

After dinner, faced with the option to attend Senior Week Quizzo, I decided to lag behind to ask another professor how he shifted focus from physics to film/photography/rhetoric/philosophy/conceptual art in his graduate work and current course offerings. This conversation ended up ebbing and evolving into a nearly three-hour sesh that quadrupled the length of my summer reading list. The recommendations, combined with a cup of the strongest coffee I have ever sipped, kept me up until sunlight saving PDFs to my desktop. I have about 1,500 pages to read!

Part of my Senior Week academic all-nighter (nice one, Gen) involved organizing my recipe bookmarks and transferring some of them to my Moleskine recipe journal. As my college days are dwindling, I am trying to avoid food shopping to minimize the amount of stuff I have to lug back to New Jersey. Working with the severely limited and surprisingly diverse ingredient selection has been quite the exciting challenge, complete with creative recipe adaptations hoping for the best. Today, I made daal with golden lentils and coconut milk and I am in the process of making mung bean-millet falafel. Tomorrow, I’m going to make some fresh pita with the rest of my flour and life is going to get pretty raucously delicious, I reckon.

Apologies for the lack of pictures. My camera was stolen or I lost it or something, but hopefully I will buy a new one next week before shipping off to my WWOOFing adventure.
