In case you were wondering what I do when I am not coding.

The menu I served for a dinner party last night. I spent all day in the kitchen to avoid homework :) Note my hand painted watercolor menus and the mysterious missing 6th course. It made for a very fun evening followed by Apples to Apples and Karaoke.
