how does your garden grow?

My creation

well actually. it's been a beautiful and bountiful year for the garden...from my heirloom tomato darlings to four kinds of basil, pineapple sage, rapini, peppers, beans, peas, and a whole lotta flower love. it's delightful and delicious and keeps me occupied while i'm not working at a job in my field of interest, and being completely torn about what to do with my life.

i also planted watermelon, but it's too late and it won't fruit, but for any budding gardeneurs reading this, i have sugar baby and gold bug melon seeds -- both heirloom varieties. delicious..and seedy.

caution: may leave scorch marks on lampshade.

another one bites the dust

Airbus A-320: 1

watch out for flying asparagus spears...

It's the middle of the summer and I find myself here writing the last, LAST essay of my undergraduate degree...and I'm feeling strange, and even reluctant to part with to speak. Did anyone else experience such conflict and crisis in transitioning from school to nothing? If so, please makes me feel less alone.

My means of catharsis in dealing with life's little problems:
