I started this blog originally to share recipes, mainly of cupcakes, but of other things I made too. I wanted to do movie reviews but I sort of lost my form after film class ended…so instead I went with restaurants. Whenever I go on fun little adventures, those make good posts too.
As for me, I am Amanda, I tend to go by mandapanda, a nickname that two years ago I hated. I was born in Chicago, moved to Chattanooga when I was 11, and moved out at 21 to Atlanta, where I am going to school and failing miserably at finding a job. Not. Cool. I love it here anyway, I love that I can see skyscrapers from where I live, but the lack of stars kind of sucks. Seeing 3 Maseratis a day on occasion is pretty cool, and I must say I really enjoy being passed by BMW M6s on Roswell Road every time I go near it. Eventually I’m going to school to study Economics and then I’m hopefully going to boss men around, in hopes one will cry. Then I can retire happily. Yes, I’ve planned that far ahead.
Likes: food in general, Formula 1, hard cider, creating weird cupcakes, twisty roads (which has in Atlanta become on/off ramps), dancing around to “Ray Ban Glasses” remixes, pandas, cute animals in general especially if they come in stuffed animal form, the feeling when food burns both my entire mouth and stomach, Greek yogurt with honey, Chick-Fil-A’s peppermint chocochip milkshake which by default means I like Christmas, glitter, especially in the form of Urban Decay eyeshadow, the Pittsburgh Penguins, especially their goalie who I lovingly refer to as McFleury, frozen yogurt, seeing beautiful cars and not caring if those driving them cut me off even if they’re jerks, cheap delicious French champagnes, cane sugar sodas, finding ways to cover things in cinnamon, daydreaming about what cars I will one day own, economics, Puma motorsport shoes, gelato, Top Gear, outdoing people in jackass driving maneuvers
Dislikes: waking up before 9, Buford Highway ricers (dudes in pink celicas and lime green eclipses? fast and the furious was cool 5 years ago), freakouts over “snow,” feeling like a bum with no job, Twitter spammers, people thinking I should go to culinary school, METAL PLATES COVERING ROADS, not being able to find cans of Strongbow, having hair so long and thick it likes to tangle up every 3 hours, people wearing pajamas in public
aim: robot panda rock
