Writing so many scientific essays at the uni has my brain a little confused. Using words and phrases like "furthermore" or "on the other hand" or "despite this" are too formal for my Spanish-speaking brain. Plus, writing here at the blog doesn't help me practice. Here I get to be very informal and make as many grammar mistakes as I want (just don't tell anyone I actually don't realize I'm making mistakes).
Drastically changing the subject, one of the things I love about The Recipe Redux is that it allows me to do something different than the usual thing here at the blog. I don’t think I’ve explained what it is though. Long story short, on the 1st of every month they propose a secret theme and on the 21st members have to blog something on that theme. This month’s theme is a DIY offering from our kitchens.
My inner-self loves crafts and DIY's. When I was younger one of my favourite TV shows was Art Attack. My mom once even bought me an art attack book and it was the-best-book-in-the-whole-wide-world. I'm not sure if I was good at it. But it's ok, my mom always said everything looked pretty and that's what matters, right?
If I had more time, I would have a DIY blog and then fill it with scrapbooks, flower vases and scarves. Good thing Redux chose a DIY theme this month. That way I get to use the right side of my brain and still do something food related because, let me be clear, I love DIY's but nothing beats food.
