Trying Out for the Part of Susie Homemaker

Lately, I've been perplexed with the question "What should I do with myself?". I've just finished an amazing yet rigorous five month internship at Vogue and my undergraduate career is complete. Other college graduates have shared stories of their summer boredom with me, but I just blew them off.  I live for sleep-in-days, so I honestly thought anyone who takes having nothing to do for granted is insane.  I quickly found out that watching re-runs of "The Bad Girls Club" gets really old. I was craving a task to get my mind off the fact that if I don't find a stable job soon I'll be the female version of Tyrese's infamous character Jody.

So, I took it upon myself to try to get in touch with my roots.  Specifically my homemaker roots. Before someone had the genius idea of wanting to work and fight in the military, us girls had to learn important life skills such as cooking, cleaning, sewing, being creatively submissive etc. I  decided I wanted to incorporate a few of those gems, sans being creatively submissive, in my life.

Here's my progress over a two day span:

My sister's friend just had a birthday. Without her permission I decided to wrap the gift. Yes I  even sewed the button on top. I have a lot of time on my hands people! 

I call these little mini bad girls "Strasberry Cream Cheese Cupcakes".  Not only are they adorable they taste good too. And yes, I made these while wearing heels and a cute little apron. I just felt like it was appropriate. 

So to my college graduates, what have you been doing to kill the boredom?  While YouTube videos are mildly amusing, they don't count :).
