Andrea Bernadette and the Wall of Finer Things

perseidbadger:

the best kind of friendships are fierce lady friendships where you aggressively believe in each other, defend each other, and think the other deserves the world.

Lehigh University is a great university.  Its greatness isn’t the result of any one thing, or any one decision, or any one time. Its greatness is the result of the continuum of collaborations, improvisations, jam sessions and teamwork… all based on a common understanding and love of Lehigh.

I snapped to attention to make this Vegan Roasted Red Pepper Pasta from The Minimalist Baker. Obviously I added more stuff to make it what I wanted to eat since some recipes don’t really push it with more (!) vegetables or flavors. Adding garlic or salt can only do so much, yes? I really love a blackened roasted pepper so I left the skins in and added blackened carrots and a can of artichokes.  After I added the pasta to the thickened sauce, I topped it with ripped kalamata olives. The finished dish was then sprinkled with locatelli cheese since I am not vegan and the internet is not the boss of me!

Real Talk

The last time I went out on a date, I had a second-model Blackberry and Barack Obama was still serving his first term.

I am getting back on the horse and am trying to be cool about everything.  Problem is that I am not cool. I want to be positive and go-get-‘em about the whole operation since I am very focused on living my best life. Also, I might need a conversation stem anchor chart (thanks, @apsies) because I am less than enthusiastic about the repartee. Am I wrong or is the banter supposed to be flirty? Flirt with me for crying out loud!

What I’m trying to say is that I’m in the market for positive attention/interactions and I’m playing the game and trying not to take it too personally.

If my 7th graders can spark a conversation and keep it rolling better than you can there is a problem. I feel like I need to send these guys a conversation stems anchor chart.

CONVERSATION STEM ANCHOR CHART!!!!!

This is so true; it hurts.
