Day Drinking

My boss said we could bring in beers today. I had two this afternoon because I could. I knew going into it, I would not get much work done. I have trouble focusing with a beer in me. At my last job, the translation company, when we would get a company lunch for a special […]

Cookies

What are your holiday cookie traditions? In the Zawacki family, we have a few.  I personally like to make the ones that family members used to make, the family members who are no longer with to celebrate Christmas. I feel that there’s a lot of comfort in making things their way. They would bring the […]

Sausage

Because I don’t think anyone who reads this is going to get any spoilers, I figured I’d tell you what I made last night to give away as presents for Christmas this year. If you haven’t guessed from the title yet, I made sausage. Italian sausage. Ellie had this great idea, to save money on […]

Train to Chicago

On Sunday, I went down to Chicago with my mom, aunt, cousin, and sister to pick up my other cousin from the train station. We drove to Harvard and then took the train downtown. Originally, I was just going to snap a few photos of the train to share with my Ukrainian friends back home […]

A Christmas Tree

This isn’t a real post because it won’t contain any of the work related stuff or the stuff about being home that I’ve intended to write about but that’s okay. You want to know why? Because I make the rules, that’s why. Today, I put up a Christmas tree.  It’s really the only Christmas tree […]
