Procrastibaking: Drunken Banana Marble Cake

Today, I find myself in my second year of grad school and on the cusp of starting my big scary internship. This terrifies me – thoughts of “How did I get here?” and “I’m so not qualified for this!” have been running through my mind since school started back up in September. On top of all that, I have 20 pages to write this weekend and no motivation to do it. Oh well, there’s only one thing to do about these nerves…keep calm and bake. Or, procrastibake if we’re being honest.
