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

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.

Fun Monday (that’s odd)

So today was an okay day. My awesome first period teacher snapped (like his temper went crazy for about 5 mins…) and then second period me and like 10 other people got let out of class 15 mins early, which is cool, since my teacher isn’t my favourite… but hey. 15 mins makes a bigg difference~~ In science, we did, like, nothing, and ended up with homework… and math was same old, same old. I got 70% on my quiz ^^ *happy* but I got 71% on my science quiz *sad* see how this works for me. Math, anything over 65% is awesome. Science, anything under 80% isn’t good at all.

After school, it was the Anime Club X-Mas Party. So I ate three plates of popcorn, drank pop, and got a bunch of candy from secret santa, which has got to be like the best secrest santa gift I’ve ever recieved (you do not want to know the others…) It was fun~^^

Boring Monday.

Today was basically a boring day. History we watched a movie, in which I pathetically cried over… In careers we watched Dirty Jobs, which wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t the most interesting thing on the earth. In science, it was a work period, and in math, we just continued with Trig. We got our quadratic function test back though, and I actually got an 86.6% on it. Happiest moment of the day!

After school, I went to Anime Club, and just chilled. We kind of organized the x-mas party for next monday, and the secret santa which will also occurr next mon. For the rest of the club meeting, I watched my two friends D and D play Yu-Gi-Oh, and my friend RL fail at drawing a square for the club poster, so overall it was an okay meeting…

All I had for homework today was math and my history essay, which I’m half-way done.

Two more weeks ’til winter break~

Currently: Attempting to finish my history essay…
