'Twas the night before Dead Week...

Here at ISU, the week before finals is endearingly referred to as Dead Week.  Basically it's a whole bunch of studying.  Professors can't assign new material to be learned.  Projects must be due beforehand.  Ands lots of reviewing goes on.

A lot of students freak out about Dead Week.  But me?  I just bake brownies.  ;)

I would love to have a dead week. Our school considered it, but the idea wasn't very popular. I actually need a dead week though. Our teachers pile on papers and tests along with final painting projects which take hooooooours to complete. I think you should call up my school and give them a talkin' to about dead week :)


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
