What is dessertation? When I made this blog I only had two things on my mind: dessert and the looming dissertation. My fiance had a stroke of genius and blurted out "dessertation!" He said, "you should start a blog." And like any other grad student, I am always looking for a reason to procrastinate, a blog fit the bill. As simple as a story it is, DessertationBlog was formed.
As a full time graduate student I bribe myself with baking! I once had an amazing professor who encouraged us to bribe ourselves when writing. I took his advice literally and now bribe myself with dreaming up my next dessert, or Starbucks trips.
Besides baking, I have the travel bug. I have been very lucky and had the opportunity to go to Europe twice since high school. I like to research and write about traveling when I am not "writing" (more like procrastinating!) on my dissertation.
Therefore, the gist is, this blog details my traveling and cooking adventures as I work on my
dissertation. I hope you enjoy the blog, bake some desserts, and are inspired to travel. To my fellow grad students, get back to work and off blogger ;-)
