Dietitians! Are You Captioning Your Videos?!

As dietitians, we have a lot of valuable information to share and you want everyone in your target audience to be able to soak up all the knowledge you’re sharing. I encourage you to consider additional ways to incorporate accessibility into your video plans, starting with closed captions. It’s much easier to design, script, and create content with accessibility in mind than it is to revamp everything after the fact,…

Learn New Skills in 2021: Making Homemade Vegetable Broth

Don’t want to scroll through a novel before you get to the recipe? Click here to view the Vegetable_Broth_Recipe.pdf. If you don’t mind a little reading first, carry on 🙂 If there’s one thing people learned last year it’s new skills in the kitchen from making focaccia bread to whipped coffee. If you haven’t tried making your own vegetable broth yet, I definitely recommend adding homemade broth to your “cooking-knowledge…

Saving Money at University

I wasn’t born knowing everything and we all learn things in our own time. One thing I wasn’t born knowing and had to learn along the way (while making plenty of mistakes) was how to save money while navigating undergrad. College is expensive and the majority of students in the United States could use a little extra money in our bank accounts during those demanding years. If there’s one thing…

COVID-19 Impacting Dietetic Internships

The past several weeks have been extremely. . . interesting. I don’t mean for that to sound insensitive, it has just been interesting to see how different people are handling the COVID-19 pandemic. I only intend to speak to my own experiences as a dietetic intern who has observed some of the impacts on a small corner of our healthcare system in the U.S. For anyone reading this who isn’t…

I almost dropped out

Fall term was rough. I had a close friend run into some troubles and I was spending a lot of time making sure their life stays on track. I also had a death in the family during the first week of the term, which was somewhat expected, but none-the-less heartbreaking. On top of that, I was commuting about 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. After 10 weeks and…

Oregon State: Nutrition Major Year One

I’ve waited far too long to post an update! Three terms went by and I’m halfway through the summer term. I had the intentions of leaving some remarks along the way, but it’s hard enough keeping up on school, let alone my blog and even drawing. Not to mention having a wedding to plan. Meh. Too much stuff. Excuses aside, I’m here now. The first year at Oregon State was…

Constructing Roman Leather Military Boots (Calcei) – Part Two

Sooooo I should have had this finished ages ago, and I’m sorry for keeping everyone waiting. I hope its worth the wait! If you need a refresher, this the second part to the Roman Military Boots Pattern Making article I published oh, ummmm *mumble-mumble*…yeah about 2 years ago. . . ANYWAY! Here’s the follow up and as always, if anything is unclear, or if you have questions, feel free to comment…

Merging Careers: Art & Science, hand-in-hand?

A blogger I follow published an article yesterday mentioning how July is half over already and its been a month since he last posted anything. I realized I haven’t published a new article since May! Well, if you’re interested, I’d like to explain why: About a year to a year and a half ago I was living in an apartment with my boyfriend and another roommate. I was working crappy…

Constructing Leather Roman Military Boots (Calcei) – Part One: Pattern Making

I figured I’d switch gears from embroidery and touch on a topic that has been rather popular for my readers; Roman footwear. I should note that when I started typing this article I had intentions of providing all the steps in one post, but I’m barely halfway through and it’s already over 1000 words. So, I’m breaking it into a couple different articles; beginning with the pattern making process, followed…
