It seems like I’m going on a Seattle Farmers Market tour. I guess they’re easy to find with a simple Google Maps search, so my first excursions are to the Farmers Markets!This is the U District market, which is next to UW and a 15 minute walk from my apartment.
Some of the vendors were the same as at the Queen Anne’s market, but I saw some interesting stalls. One was selling mushrooms – I’d never seen them grow on…whatever that thing is called before! Another was selling honey, and you could try and find the queen bee in the hive. The queen has a darker body and is slightly larger than the workers!
I ended up buying a pretzel to eat, as well as some delicious loganberry jam. The stall selling jam was also selling all sorts of other flavors of jam, like lavender, blackberry, strawberry, lingonberry, rhubarb, etc. They also sold these pepper jellies, which were spicy jams I guess? I’d never eaten something like that, so it was pretty interesting.
Now, based on the title you may be wondering what kind of story this will be. As you will soon find out, it’s a story of adventure born out of the pure, dark chaos that fills the minds of sleep deprived Caltech undergrads.
I’m starting a new miniseries on the blog – Film Club! Each episode, I’ll share a short clip from a popular piece of media, and then completely dissect and overanalyze it, because let’s face it, I’m doing it in my head already anyway. You say “buzzkill.” I say “science.” We’ll kick things off with a clip from Gravity Falls I discussed a bit in my previous post: Season 2 Episode 12, A Tale of Two Stans. If somehow you haven’t watched this show yet (?!)… spoilers incoming!
It’s crazy to think that I began applying to college almost three years ago. I still remember spending hours looking at college websites, admissions blogs and reddit pages to try to get a sense of what college is ACTUALLY like. To help you get through these stressful times, here are a few tips that I wish I had listened to. Hopefully, these will ease your worries and maybe even make the process more enjoyable!?
