But I think that the fear is good. I think having that fear will motivate me to do things...like go to Germany over winter break when I'm living on loans and when it would be easier to give into inertia and study over break. It'll motivate me to keep doing things I love: walking my dog along the river so that I can see the world outside, finding creativity in food, etc. It'll motivate me to remember that life is happening.
So on that note, I made this interesting drink last night with oranges, limes, and rose water. Caramelizing the oranges brings out a very interesting flavor that is highlighted by the rose water. Try it, it'll be amazing.

Burnt Orange Rose Cocktails
Makes one drink
2 oz. tequila
1.3 oz. Triple Sec or Grand Mariner
0.33 fresh lime juice
2 Oranges, sliced in half
0.67 oz rose water
Salt for the glass rim
Take the orange halves and put them in the broiler for about 7 minutes or until the tops are brown-black, but not burnt. Pull them out of the oven to cool. Mix the tequila, triple sec, rose water, and lime juice in a container. Shake them up well to mix. When the oranges have cooled, juice them into the container, and shake it up again. Pour them over ice in salt-rimmed glasses and enjoy.
