Quick 2011 Compilation

Well, it’s officially 2012 and I want to start fresh. But I also wanted to let y’all know about the last few awesome baked goods I’ve made and give a quick update on my life. So I thought I’d do a little compilation photo style for you to summarize my last few weeks of 2011. … Continue reading

Back in Africa

So my America trip is finished and I’m back in Benin with a med school acceptance in hand. I’m about 99% sure that I’ll be matriculating at this school (my in-state school for any curious folks out there) but I haven’t officially withdrawn from other places yet.

I can’t … Continue reading
