This blog, filled with bad bread puns and insights on life, was started by Erica and Allison in 2015 during senior year of high school. Born and raised in California and New York respectively, we now both go to school in Texas, where we spend our time hiking, meditating, and teaching spin classes at the local gym.
Just kidding, neither of us actually gets out of bed each morning. Good thing we can blog from our laptops, or none of us would be here right now.
Posts are ideally published every Thursday in rotating order (Allison one week, Erica the next, etc.) But depending on the number of buy-one-get-one specials at the local mac ‘n cheese restaurant or the amount of chemistry exams in the coming weeks, the actual time between posts may vary. Sorry for the sporadicity. We’re working on our educations.
I’ve been told I have the personality and social capabilities of a squirrel.
I’m 18, a VPSA grad (’16), and a sophomore civil engineering major at the University of Texas. Austin is growing on me, but I was born and raised in Los Angeles.
My biggest dream in life was to become a professional basketball player, but that ended when I plateaued at 5’1″. Since then, I’ve explored other possible career paths, such as opening bakeries and writing novels. But when I realized that I can’t tell flour from sugar and that my stories sound like an illiterate cat sat on a typewriter, I settled on wanting to build the world’s most structurally-sound bridge instead.
I took karate for thirteen years and am now dabbling in college intramural sports that I don’t actually know how to play. Besides accidentally tripping my teammates in C-League soccer games, I also spend my time mini golfing, updating my Spotify playlists, and studying in coffee shops.
Sometimes I cry when I see really adorable photos of cats.
I grew up in New York but moved to Texas for college, which basically means I spend most of my time complaining about the South. I just finished my first year at Baylor University, conveniently located just north of Erica.
I’m studying biochemistry and math. I love organic chemistry and have been known to cry over the beauty of molecular structures (I probably cry too much). I currently mix chemicals in a beaker for fun and one day I want to mix chemicals in beakers for a living.
When I’m not talking about science, I enjoy watching Netflix, reading novels, and obsessively refreshing my email.
