I hope everyone had a blessed Samhain. I know that, at this point, that was two weeks ago, but life comes at you fast!
Before I explain this video, I want to say that on November 5, I did my oral defense of my dissertation proposal. My doctoral work is in the field of Industrial/Organizational Psychology, with an emphasis on training and development. My study focuses on skill transference from playing games (in this case, Dungeons & Dragons) to working life. I’m very excited and by the time you read this, I’m hoping to have been granted approval to submit my study application to the Institutional Review Board (IRB).
Also! Happening this week on Thursday, I will be debuting my burlesque act! Tickets are still available (and if you use the code LAVINIA at checkout, you’ll get $5 off your tickets) and I’m also very excited about this particular endeavor, as well. Don’t worry, I’ll still be doing videos and such for cooking and witchery. You’re not getting rid of me that easily.
So, this video. This was a last-minute decision to record and my ADHD brain did not plan well. I started blocking another burlesque act and was way too into the blocking and lost track of time. I had a Halloween thing to do at 7pm, and it required a costume–a costume I’d planned on wearing all day! I just started my video too late, so I ended up having to finish the video as Dawn from Cry for Dawn by Joseph Michael Linsner. Pretty sure no one minds, but it was a cross-over I had wanted to avoid. Oh, well!
The casserole was really good. It was something that came across my Facebook feed the other day and I decided to give it a try. I still had the nightshade-free enchilada sauce from a while back (which was still good), so I used that and went from there. Cleanin’ out the fridge.
This post is kind of short. I apologize for that; I’m quite a bit distracted. I’ll try to remember to let you all know how the defense turned out and I hope to see you at my virtual burlesque debut!
