Today, I bring you all red velvet cinnamon rolls. Combining my love for warm, gooey cinnamon rolls and all things red velvet, we have a dessert (or breakfast?) that makes any day sweeter. The red color was made for royalty — and you don’t even need a crown.
Ok, y’all, what’s up? I have officially finished my THIRD year of college. I am honestly in disbelief. I have completed 75% of my college education (and actually one degree as well!). I only have one more year, and then next May, I’ll be crossing the stage (if circumstances allow it, of course).
Honestly, the thought of being done with college is wild. I remember when I started college, I was so unsure about who I was and what I wanted from my life. I jumped around at the idea of being a lawyer, a public policy analyst, or an international journalist. Although all of those jobs sound interesting, I have found my love in the world of global operations and supply chain management. I didn’t even know that was a field when I started college. But, then, one day, I was researching materials for my thesis, and something about global production lines enthralled me. Soon, I found myself consumed in a hole of literature discussing global operations in the context of technology production. At that moment, I changed my thesis topic to technology production in emerging markets, began researching the vast world of production, and now here we are—with a finished thesis (!!!) and an additional major!
My freshman year self was so worried about figuring life out, and, although I have definitely not figured out life, I’ve learned that time makes life clearer. You figure things out slowly.
I still face moments of deep uncertainty, especially now that we’re living in a global pandemic (will these blog posts be historical artifacts one day? I’m contributing to a literary canon discussing a once in a life time event, right?). My summer internship was moved to a fully virutal format, which makes me sad. I wanted to experience industry life and become integrated into my company, but I am still grateful for the opportunity to work, Alhamdullilah.
Now let’s get to the red velvet cinnamon rolls. The real reason you’re here.
