Life must be understood backwards, but we often forget that it also must be lived forwards.

Sick

Ugh. I’m sick today. I was sick yesterday too I guess…
I haven’t really been posting any actual ‘daily life’ posts for a while, just poems… I just noticed that.
So I was going to post yesterday, I really was… but then I almost collapsed, so I ended up just sleeping at 9pm. Ironic that in Bio I’m learning about viruses and stuff, and suddenly, I get one.

I have a Business test tomorrow. That will be fun, seeing as I won’t have the review stuff I’m supposed to get today… Yeah I’m home…
Then I have a Biology quiz on Friday. Even more fun. Sigh.
Also, sometime between tomorrow and another day, I have a Bio assignment due and then a tech assignment… I should really start those…

Tomorrow’s my sister’s birthday, so I’m making her present right now, a bracelet. Hopefully it’ll turn out as I have planned it…

So yesterday before I had my like mental and physical breakdown (which did not happen because of the fact that..) I watched Gossip Girl. So Blair is back, yay~ as in she is queen and not some weak girl pining over her relatioship…and I do wonder if she and Chuck get back together… they were such a good couple~ Nate and Serena are just as good though~
Two more episodes (I believe) until season three is done. And then GG is on re-run (or no run…) mode until September. Next season, I think, is the last season of the epic and scandalous world of the Upper East Side, GG style. Also, Taylor Momsen will be gone from the last season, due to her band’s tour. Jessica Szohr will also be absent from a few of the fourth season’s episodes (so her relatioship with Dan will be post-poned) (YAY!).

Currently: Building my sister’s birthday present

Baking Run Amok

If you were to walk into my kitchen at this very moment, you’d see baking pans everywhere, measuring cups filling the sink, spoons across the counter, and pots filled with unidentifiable substances. Then, somewhere between it all, you’ll find the small products of hard work and big messes.

Today was our little, kind of, baking day. The oven runs 24 hours, and the mixer is on non-stop. I believe we made about 12 batches of shortbread cookies, 5 batches of rugelachs, and 3 batches of …. something snaps… all of which took about 16 hours, a ton of work, and a lot of energy.

However, even through all that baking and dishwashing, I found that baking with my family was fun. Or well, baking while they were watching you. I baked the cookies, my mom, my sister, and myself baked the rugelachs, and my mom baked the snaps, while my dad enjoyed the products.

I guess the holidays ARE about spending time with your family, and also cooking for them, but in the end you can all just sit back, relax, and enjoy the desserts~

Currently: Typing out this story I’ve been working on for a while. Whether it’ll be any good is beyond me.
