 So practical was today, and I didn't get a great final grade on it, because I forgot some paper thing for all the stuff I made, but I got a 97 on my paper. 

But even though I was confident on the written exam, I still got a 74 on it. pfft. And I got an awesome comment from Chef Pehoski (who sounds ALOT like Mr. Cieslak omg! Wait, is that how you spell his name?! I forgot already! Sometimes I almost think it's him whenever the chef speaks lol) 

He said my paper was excellent, that it was very thorough. The only reason I got a 97 was because I didn't put any pictures in the paper. The paper was about pies, by the way. lol 

Here's what me and my group's tartlettes look like together. We each had to make 6 by ourselves for the practical, and when it's graded, we pick the best ones to put on a marble slab and serve them to a classroom. 

Mine are the four on the far right. :D 

All of these are made from straight up scratch, all the way down to the whipped topping on the mini turtle pies. Everything had to be done in this one class, 6 hours (which flies by way too fast on practical day). 
But yeah, that's what I made. I didn't think I was going to finish everything, but miraculously, I did. I'm tellin' you, almost every day labs feels like those Food Network challenge episodes. A little of me enjoys working under pressure, cuz then I work faster, but communicating with people who get edgy and hostile when they're working under pressure isn't really pleasant. 

A possible-fight-very-heated-argument went down in my room just a half hour ago between Olivia and Cyril. Cyril has a very bad temper. He said he's had to work on it since he was young, and he's been excellent with keeping it in, because I totally didn't know how mad he could get until now. It was pretty scary, but I understand why he did it. Olivia's pretty stubborn, and Cyril's a natural hothead. Both from New York. Not a good mix. 

We were all enjoying Lion King when this all happened too. But it was built up from other things Olivia had supposedly been bothering Cyril with, so. . . But anyway, after Yazmin warded him off and Stephon took him out of the room, I left to go talk to them while Stephon talked some sense into Olivia. Now it's peaceful for tonight, and I respect Stephon even more for speaking so maturely to her. He really knows how to word things, something I've always wished I could do. It's rather charming. 

I bought Smallville Season 1 today! I bought it for $25 at a local cd store. I want to collect them all, so I can watch them again. It's always been my favorite series, and so many amazing memories came from it when Stasha and I were obsessed with it, so yeah. Thursday, I'm hostin a marathon for it. keke. It's gonna be awesome. Tom Welling looked his best on the earlier seasons because he was younger and less buff then. Now he looks all plain and mature. Just doesn't have the same effect on me. lol But man, I sure love me some Michael Rosenbaum! :D

I need to go to bed now. As soon as I get my laundry out. 


be blessed. <3

 They're the most advanced looking things we've made in this class in my opinion. Practical's tomorrow. I have to do a fruit pie, 3 mini specialty pies (turtle pie), and 3 tartlettes. I shall show you them! They're so preety! 

The tart on the left's called Swiss Apple Flan. I didn't taste it, but it sure smelled good! I didn't really have time to have a piece (I was too concerned with getting stuff done). It's mainly just custard, apple slices, and crust, all baked together in a tart. The crust for all of these is called Short dough, and it's pretty much a cookie recipe. Tastes like a butter cookie, and omgah, those tartlettes are yummy! Well, I know what I want to do for meh besties when I come back home. ;D <3 

The ones in the middle with the fruits on top are lemon tartlettes. A thin line of raspberry was piped on the bottom in the middle of the crust, and lemon curd was poured in as the filling. Lemon curd is da bomb! We were aloud to decorate these with any kind of fruit we wanted, so I just picked some strawberries, raspberries, kiwis, and blueberries, sliced them up and made designs out of them. And then brushed with apricot glaze for shine, with chopped almonds dressed on the sides. But in my opinion (and my group's), we could have totally gone without the almonds. Chef Pehoski had a specific request for how he wanted each tartlette to look, so we were still limited. 

The almond tartlettes (on the far right) has a thin piping of apricot marmalade in the center and an almond filling (like a batter) is piped in as the filling. It's baked until the filling is baked, then topped with powdered sugar and garnished with a cute little toasted almond slice. :3 

Today was a pretty relaxed day despite the hectic lab day in class. Dishes were EVERYWHERE in the dishroom, and no one was claiming to wash them because they were all busy themselves, so they piled up at an overwhelming rate at the end of the day. I was the last in my group to get things done for that day, but I'm  confident that I'll have everything finished on time. *sigh* Practical days are crazy. AND there's a written exam before any of that good stuff. This is what I have to expect for all of my classes on the 8th and 9th day. >.<;;;;;

After class, I changed clothes, got my package from nana, which had my Zune in it, and drove to a Best Buy to finally get my two front speakers put in. I only had it done though because nana didn't know I didn't have working heat in my car. When my sound system gets put in the right way, my air's supposed to magically work again, and it does now. It's. . . HEA VEN LY. And so is the sound. But it isn't as magical as Gwyn's of course. haha. Even though hers is beginning to fart sometimes, it doesn't even compare to mine. Hers makes mine look like an ailing chihuahua or something. keke, and hers would be the beast. keke 

I got a great deal on the whole thing too. Best Buy has great service. The guy who serviced my car was extremely patient. He put up with all the crap Cedric did to the system. Screwed it up big time, apparently. haha, this would be the second time I've taken my car to Best Buy and both times they've said, "friends don't let friends install stereo systems," lol. Never again. When I was expecting to pay $200 for the whole thing, I only had to pay $90 and with that he put a deck on my dashboard thing so my cd player doesn't look raggedy, made a temporary fix to my front door handle so I can get in through the driver seat again, fixed my heat! I am one happy gal. <3 He said he could install a new door handle if I bought the part for it. It'd be much cheaper than a regular mechanic would charge. I'm totally doing that, so I'll have to tell my dad about it. 

I've been missing home a little. I really want to go to bn with Gwyn and hang at her house some more, and I wanna laugh with Stasha about all the inside jokes we have, and go to the movies with buds, and go to Denny's, and sleep in my room, and eat nana's food. It's not a homesick feeling, just a . . . I don't know, a reminiscent one. A nostalgic one. A comfort. 

I've made alot of great friends here, but the ones at home are so much more special to me. <33 

be blessed.

 There's a time for noise and a time for migrating somewhere other than my room so I can do things I like to do alone (meaning just me and Olivia), like read and sleep. I can't do that when people are here distracting me from it. It's always awkward when people are in your room, where you live--the same place where your underwear is and ALL of your belongings. Usually, I don't have an issue with company, but when it's midnight on a weekday and you have to wake up at 6:00am to get up for class, when you don't want to get up period, it starts to get old. I haven't caught up on sleep yet, and I won't if this goes on. And it isn't like the crew's a quiet bunch. They're all loud. Except Ariel; she can tolerate silence, so she actually keeps it sometimes. I understand I have a group of rowdy, loud friends, but I'm not in the mood for it at this time of night. 

I needed to rant. The fact that Dana has to sleep through most of this every night shouldn't be fair, especially when it's late and the noise is still going. The walls are pretty thin here. But anyway, In conclusion, I'm not used to all this noise, and tonight, it's annoying me. 

Another note: I need to renew my fafsa, man!!! 

And I downloaded the first part of SBS's Gayo Daejun 2009, but it isn't HD enough(quite blurry to me actually). Does anyone remember where they DLed theres?!!!!! >.< 

ILU peeps! <3 

be blessed.

 I got one single hour of sleep on Monday, all because I stayed up talking with Olivia and Ariel's brother. He had to catch a flight in the morning, so he slept on our floor. Passed out at 4 something and got up at 6, so two hours. 

Last night, I slept for four hours, then took a 30 min nap after class before work-study. And I was planning to go to bed at 12 now, but we have company, so that probably won't happen. I wish I was able to not care who was in my room and sleep shamelessly, but it's harrrd! 

>.< Oh well. 

Peace out doods! <3 

be blessed.

 keke, I'm back in Charlotte now, at Tisha's house (a family friend), after leaving the airport at 4:30pm, going to Mrs. Sonya's house, picking her up for some errands, then stopping at Mcdonalds and Blockbuster, before finally settling at her house. I've been to her house before, back when I was visiting the school. It was when I was explaining how green the grass was up north and jazz. Anyway, they're really sweet. Tisha's really funny, her two kids are awesome (especially Xavier. He's ADORABLE. Five years old of smart. It amazes me how well kids communicate these days). Xavier and I played some Wii, and now I'm on my lappie. ^ ^ 

This morning was hectic--my fault, because I didn't completely pack the other night. So I misplaced my Zune right when I was rushing to leave and had to leave it in the house, wherever it was. Do you know how deprived I felt?! My Zune is like the other side of me! But I sucked it up, because it was my fault. 

Everyone My nana was freaking out about the possible craze of the security process at the airport because of the whole bomb scare Christmas Day. I knew it wouldn't be much of anything, but she wanted me there like 3 hours early. She even made me call the airline I was going on just to make sure. I was on hold for too long, so I didn't find out. I was confident. 

But then, I was starting to worry when it was almost 12 and we were still in the house. Chris had to take me too the airport and so his Hummer lugged half through Emerson when nana called saying I left my jacket. The $60 Hollister jacket I got for Christmas. Chris fumed, I scowled at him. He has a rotten temper-thing sometimes. He likes to mutter ALL the time. It's short-lived, but man, it's highly annoying. Really full of himself, but what can I say, he really does help out alot. 

Anyway, Stasha came along too, so after traffic spread out, the tension dissipated and all was well. Got to the airport at around 1pm, and I was all checked in by 1:30. I even took my time too, so security was nothing. I was able to pick my own seat when I checked in, so I chose the window seat at the emergency doors, assuming they'd be in the front of the plane, where I'd feel most comfortable, but they were actually at the middle of the plane, right under the wings. The wings are callin' me I tell you! I somehow manage to get a seat by the wing alot, almost every time. 

But something happened that I was kinda dreaming for for every flight I'd been taking. I always wanted to sit next to a fairly cute guy and talk to him. And it happened! I think he was interested in me because he kept looking my way. I actually stood near him at the gate, waiting for the boarding call, but I had no idea he'd be sitting next to me. He looked a little intimidating though, because he has a really thin face with a very distinctive nose(that I liked), and some very VERY long eyelashes under preety darkbrowngreen eyes. He was lanky and pale, but covered in freckles. keke. Anyway, he's like a skater kid, and we talked the whole flight. I was a little embarrassed because I freaked out during take off and landing, but he was really nice. He was actually the one who tried to engage convo with me. Asked me what music I liked. You know what I told him. I told him I listen to everything, except Country. First I liked hip hop and RnB, then got into rock and everything else later because of friends and such. He said he was the opposite. He started with rock, then his friends got him into rap and stuff, and he never turned back. 

At one point, he said he'd give me one of his ipod shuffles(he had 3 of them), but one of his friends stole one and gave it to him. That was sketchy. So I don't really know about him. The ipods weren't in his bag; they were in his suitcase, so he couldn't give me one, but I was grateful either way. Hey, if he was gonna offer me one, I was gonna take it. lol 

When we landed, I exchanged numbers with him and he walked with me to baggage claim, then we went our separate ways. It was nice, I mean, I was a little regrettful about the number thing, but again, how are friends made if you never take initiative right? Either way, I'll keep my eye on him, if he ever texts me, that is. It he ends up too creepy in future, I'll just ignore his texts until he stops. Like the two others I've had before (one from BCC, another named Donovan at Jaywoo. >.< Thank GOODNESS he stopped texting me. THANK GOD he gave up.)

Oh, and Christopher(the filipino kid I think I talked about before) had asked me to the Winter Formal at uni during Christmas Break and I said yeah(why not) I probably wouldn't have gotten asked if he hadn't. I was touched overall. I didn't know he had it on his mind. :D 

p.s. - OMG, I stayed up till almost 5 last night looking through U-kiss tags on Omonatheydidnt. I can't WAIT for their reality show to come out omgah!!!! And whatever you haters say, the fact that Alexander is full of hot and dorb will forever remain in my thoughts, with UNWAVERING STRENGTH! 8<
And another thing: I think from now on, I'm really gonna look forward to the Gayo Daejun ceremonies every year. This year's one enchanted me! <3 That, and I want to indulge over live perfs. like Gwyn and Kriss does, now that I've gotten over being embarrassed of their possible voice flaws from too much flailing around. xD Korea's pop culture really is amazing. *sigh* so sparkly! 

Man! The night I find more of that perverted HILARIOUS photoshopped JaeHo comic that Stasha, Gwyn, and I read together happened to be the last night I'd be at home! I know she isn't into dibisque anymore, but the memories of the happy days are always inviting. I forgot the name of the site I found the author of it at, but Gwyn, if you want it, ask me about it. It's sooooooo funny. And up to date now, so there's surprise guests who appear. lol xDDDD The site has other superfunny goodies on it, but it's centered around gay >.>;;. 

Okay now, I've got some writing to do, so peace! And oh yeah! HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2010 IS HERE!!!!!! (New Years Eve and New Years day was awesome by the way. It was amazing, actually. We partied and danced, enjoyed various awesome remixes, and watched Gayo Daejun. And I got a gift from Kriss that was SO ADORABLE! I'll have to take a picture of the giant Nimbles plushy she and Gwyn got me AND the spatu----I LEFT IT OMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, so I need nana to send that to me along with the other gifts I couldn't take with me. She got me a cute colorful spatula for flippin' and stuff, and some tastic paper clips(never seen any like the ones she gave me). <3 ILU GUYS!

be blessed. <3

haerae: (whazz now?)
The other day--monday, I believe--Stasha and I went to Vero Beach in nana's van to attack the outlet malls. It wasn't as special as we'd imagined, but there were major sales everywhere. The best sale was at an actual mall at Rave. Rave had a whole-store blowout sale or something, so everything was 40-70% off. I went ballistic on the mufflers cuz they were all half-off and whatnot. 
Stasha: Aw, Hollister again? Man, that place smells!
Random man who walks past: Smells like wet gerbils in there. 
Stasha: >.>;;
Raeven: *boisterious laugh*

* Made my first purchase at Hollister, too! They were still expensive, but I really like their long sleeve tops and hoodies. I didn't get a hoodie, but I DID get a scarf thing that kinda resembles what Yoochun wears on his head sometimes. It was funny-- I wasn't even sure I wanted to buy it until Stasha made that comment about it, then I was like,. "I'm buyin it! xDD" 

* Today, nana freaked out because I didn't own a heavy jacket, so she gave me her card to go buy one at JCPennys. I got one at Hollister instead. I didn't know what kinda stuff they put in their clothes, but it's amazingly comfortable! I got a long puffy jacket for $60 on clearance. It's originally $140, so that's a good enough deal, right? 

Then I got some boots. She ordered me to get a pair. hehe. Good thing I wanted some too. I had to pay for those though, but they were only $30 at Traffic. 

* This Christmas was pretty amazing. Dinner was on point. I made two successful carrot cakes from scratch, and everyone loved it, EVEN I! And some bangin' pie crust for 4 sweet potato pies. I got money for clothes and a dooney & burke giraffe print tote bag from nana, some pjs, a frikkin amazing waffle maker from none other than Dede (the girl's a genius. I didn't even know she knew I wanted one so bad. I'm totally smuggling that into the dorm xDDD), and a mini scale from my mom (for scaling out ingredients when baking. It's supercool! <3). It was a great Christmas. Maybe even the best one yet. I just felt the love of the family this year. I really liked how we came together. Even though we opened gifts at like, 7pm. That's definitely a first. lol 

* I haven't even done any new years resolutions. And I have quite a few this year, for once.
The number UNO is to go to the gym at least once a week. That's the minimum.
Numero Dos is to post pictures on my posts.
Numero Tres: update my lj daily.
Numero Cuatro: work on my people skills (because apparently, my mother says, I've let people take advantage of me. I agree with her to an extent, but I mostly just want to be less of a push over.
Cinco: Learn some Korean. More the baby words I know today. 
Seis: Expand my vocabulary. Learn a new adjective/noun/verb
Siete: Finish a book (preferably me and Maria's keke. Which is the only one at the moment. hehe)
Ocho: Leave the country. Preferably South Korea.
Nueve: Get a boyfriend. lol Even though that's beyond my control. (waiting on God for this one. hehe) xD
Diez: Have a real stinkin' job. I mean, a REAL job. Not the work-study one I have now. That's not a job. 
Once: Read m Bible more. (I barely know any of the stories and can connect any names together with them. And I'd like to study it anywhay. It's about time.) 
Doce: Change someone's life. (However that'll happen, and whenever this happens, I'll cross this one out) 

* I saw Avatar!!!!!!!!!!! It's my new favorite movie. HANDS DOWN. <33333333 Just piped with amazingness. That's all I have to say. 

* Tomorrow's Gwyn's epic New Years Party and I can't wait. I wonder what she has in store for it. hehe Whatever it is, it's gonna be shweet. xDD She got me a bootiful christmas present too. I love her gifts. I use everything she gives me. It's just that good. xDD And I'm excited to give Kriss' gift too. I hope she'll like it. lol, they're mostly things I'd get excited about, but I'm praying we're on the same level. keke. ILU Kriss! I finally get to see you! <33

Okay, now I'm gonna go. I've been wanting to play the sims all day. Stasha's finally off. haha. PEACE! Have an awesome New Years guys! God willing, nothing extremely terrible will befall any of us this year. 2010 sure sounds fantastic. hehe 

<33 be blessed.

 I'm waiting for Chris to get his behind home so he can give me my much needed scale so I can FINALLY make the carrot cake and pie crust I was supposed to make a day ago. WHAT'S TAKING HIM SO LONG?! Who bakes at midnight on Christmas Eve?! My goodness. 

Who knows how long I'll be up tonight. pffffff POOOOOOOOOP. 

Wellp, Happy Christmas Eve! <3 
haerae: (Hongki sleepy)
 Wahhhh, I feel like I'm neglecting my friendddssss. I miss them, they miss me, and the only time I've seen or talked to them was on the same day I got home. Sometimes, being busy sucks. I wish I didn't have so many priorities to get done while I'm on my short vacay home. But I can't say it was all because I was being lazy. Well, the first two days were. I kinda just wanted to stay home and you know, be home, then I went with fam to the mall to go Christmas shopping.

On the 19th, I went to a Christmas/Birthday party for a childhood friend. Her name's Tyra. She and a number of other friends who attended, had gone to elementary school with me for more than six years in a row. It was really awesome seeing them again. I mean, they were literally my first real friends; I grew up with them. So I couldn't miss that party. It was fun. Stasha came with me and even she enjoyed it. Omg, everyone in that little class are in college, some are even married, some are out of the country. It makes me squee! 

But anyway, I just wanted to say that. And update. hehe. I went to the dentist today, and THANK GOD, this whole crown thing is officially done. I still have other things to get done, but the big thing's done. And you don't know how relieved I am right now. It feels kinda weird having it there, but I guess that's expected.  After Thursday, I'll be free to my friends! ^ ^ 

Last night, I stayed up till 2 searching for manhwa scans. keke. And I found a comm on LJ primarily for that called manhwadreams (or something) and they still haven't accepted my request to join! They apparently have a huge collection, so I'm like checkin' that thing every half hour for access. lol  I gotta go to the store in a few to get ingredients for Maria's cake. This is what I'm hoping to accomplish by tomorrow. hehe 
I haven't gotten everything for it yet, and I hope I have enough money to use for it,but yeah. I'm pretty confident I can do this without the use of fondant to cover it. :D  But hey, I'm gonna go. My comp's acting slow, and I can't see what I've typed fast enough for my liking. Until next time! <3 be blessed.  (man, I'm sleepy!) - Raeven
haerae: (Minho glee smile)
Yep. I was the one spazzin about Ninja Assasin yesterday. I finally got to see it, and a bunch of buddies formed a group and my pal Alexis hosted it. It was GREAT. A BEAUTIFUL WONDERFUL DAY. Rain surprised me with his acting, and his English really wasn't even that bad. And MY GOODNESS, the fighting skills were amazing. He's really good. And I can't believe the transformation he went through during training for this movie. I watch all the behind the scenes clips on Youtube. They had before and after pics of his body. It's crazy. They said he trains exceptionally well.

In my opinion, Rain can do frenzied-angry-man very well. Other than the really cheesy annoyingly poetic lines the childhood-friend-first love-girl kept saying, the story was good. It did too make since, and it wasn't a mess of just fighting and pointlessness. I liked it alot. But again, that's my opinion. I saw it for Rain. <3 I really hope he's in more movies. Maybe this'll be his big break.

All my friends loved it. They, mostly the guys, were all pumped about after it was over. They're blood-hungry anyway, so they didn't really care about storylines.

* It's snowing in New York. hehe, and Nesha told me her dad said it was snowing in Georgia. If it's snowing in frikkin Georgia, which is SOUTH of here, why isn't there anything goin on in NC?! I think it's cuz I'm here. Too much Florida in me. lol

But it is freezing here right now. I know this because my hands feel like I've stuck them in the freezer when I'm outside, and I can see my breath when I'm not even trying to see it.

* I rode a city bus for the first time yesterday. When we all met up in the quad so we could go to the movies, we caught the 3:00 bus to Conchord Mills. It was a long ride cuz there was major traffic right when we got there. We could have even got off the bus then and walk the rest of the way, but it was too cold for all that.

* We hung around the food court and snacked on food before the movie. There were 8 of us. I got Dairy Queen. hehe.

* Then we went to buy the tickets. The movie wasn't until 5:55, so we goofed around until then. The bathrooms in that theatre's like. . . it's extravagant! You could host a VIP party in there or something! <3

* Then it was time for the movie. (THERE ARE ALOT OF ASIANS IN THE MALL. It's not fair though, because all the ones I saw were with their asian ladies. That annoys the heck outta me. But anyway, I saw alot of cute ones, with good style!

* Then, as we were all kinda high off the movie, we roamed the mall, settling back into the food court. Stephon had his parent's Suburban, so we didn't have worry about missing the bus, BLESS HIS HEART!

But it was so strange. When we were in the food court, and we'd finished or food, there were security guards standing by. They finally approached us and told us we couldn't sit in the food court unless we were eating. They said we couldn't do it on the weekends. What kinda crap is that?! I've never heard of that one. That's not even a rule back at home! I don't even see any security guards back in Melbourne Square. But maybe it's because Charlotte's a "big city"?

* We left the mall when it closed, which was at 9, like all the other malls.

* Then a party magically happened in my room and it turned dirty. I was not involved. lol But I did dj for like, two seconds. Stasha saw it because I webcammed with her.

* Sunday was uneventful except for church this morning; that was good. xD Then I stayed in my room all the rest of the day. Had Papa Johns.

I need to go to bed. So Bai!

I breezed through the rest of fall term, flew home for Thanksgiving break, and came back yesterday, started labs again today, without updating squat on this journal. WOE IS ME! This is my laziness in full force people. I haven't even unpacked my clothes yet.

The night before I left back for school, I went over to Gwyn's just to say bye and retrieve my Hotel Africa manhwas from her, but I ended up staying for a good hour talking with her. It was sooooo nice, omgah! All the good stuff happens when you're close to leaving, I swear. It happens every time for me. We talked about alot of things, about our futures, boys, complicated-feeling-edness, SHINee. . . just stuff. I love times like that. They're special. <3

Stasha got a webcam while we were in Pensecola for Thanksgiving. We went to Best Buy on Black Friday, but the webcams weren't on sale, really. We got a logitech one for $20. I WANTED to get Smallville Season 6, because they had all the seasons for only $10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (those things are worth $50-60 a season *gasp*), but I couldn't find it on the shelf. It stopped at season 5. And Stasha was already in that boa of a line, so I couldn't spend too much time roaming the place till I found it. When we left the store, Stasha told me she saw a whole stinkin bin of Smallville dvd sets. I could have died. We didn't get any Smallville, sadly, so I'm stuck with hunting them down on the internet and using up hard drive space. Oh well. It was my intention anyway.

I took my first taxi on November 20th 2009, ladies and gents! It was THRILLING! I called for one the night before and didn't even know how to ask for one. lol I was like, "Ah em, uh-how---what are your hours?", then the arab guy was like "hehe, m'am, our service is 24 hours," so I was like "Oh! Okay, well. . . " and I told him I needed a ride to the airport at 4:30am the next morning and he asked for my address, and that was it. I got up at 3:30am, so I'd have time to take a shower and figure out what last minute stuff I'd need and then he called my cell telling me he was parked downstairs. He was like, 8 minutes early. That made me happy. I'd heard stories from Nesha and Erin about their cab experiences and both told me theirs were always late. They told me to call a few of them and catch the first one that arrived. I just risked calling one. So I figure I'd give him business next time I need a ride super early in the morning. It was a pretty fancy cab too, with leather seats and tinted windows and such. I thought those were the ones that were most expensive, but apparently, they're the same price as all the other ones in Charlotte. I was highly impressed. :D

When I got home, I didn't get to take a nap at all. Gwyn and I went straight to Tampa to pick up Kriss and we talked the whole way there, catching up, listening to toons, you know, the good stuff. Then, Kriss, Gwyn, and I got Taco Bell, then took Kriss home, stayed at Kriss' for about 30 minutes, then Gwyn picked up Stasha, we reunited there, and she took me to my mom's. I was at my mom's for a good two hours. We had a good chat. She had to take Stasha back to the school at 5:30, so I waited for her to take her up there, then I went home to get ready for Stasha's school's football game at 7:30.

Omg, I was already spacey from being so tired. I got a pretty prominent headache by the time the game was over. And we didn't even go straight home after the game. Since the team one, nana took us to get ice cream at Sonic, then she had to take Stasha's friend home. *sigh* The day was crazily long. But it was well worth it. I had such an awesome day that day. First taxi ride, first football game. xD And Stasha's really not that bad in cheerleading! She and Chengzhi look dorb in their uniforms, doin' they're little moves. It was fun to watch. And the game was intense!!! I had alot of fun.

My bedroom's frikkin magical! That new bed I have. . . I miss it already. Only got to sleep in it for about 5 days. That wasn't enough. :p

* Went to Steak and Shake with Maria, Kara, Chase, Emily Walker, and Ronnie last Tuesday. We caught up and cracked jokes. I LOVE get togethers like that.

* Went to Cassie's thanksgiving party on Tuesday also. That was warm and toasteh fun. <3 The turkey and ham was splendid, but I felt a little awkward for the first hour we were there. Felt kinda out of place, mostly because I hadn't seen the crew in a while, and also because I'm so not in CCS anymore. That must've been it. Surrounded by a bunch a' youngins'. lol With the exception of Gwyn and maybe Andrew, I guess. lol It was still fun, though. Cassie's an awesome friend.

* The trip to Pensecola was very nice. Everyone came this year--everyone back home, that is. Chris, Scooter, Mom, Nana, Papa, Stasha, Dede, Me, Auntie Wyler, and Tyler. My mom, Chris, and Scooter, hadn't been showing up for the last few Thanksgivings we've spent in P-cola, so alot of the fam was very happy to see them.

* I'd been in a fairly crappy mood that whole trip, mostly because of my selfish want to sulk and be moody. I really don't know why I felt so impatient on the drive; maybe riding in vehicles with family did that to a person anyway, but I just got annoyed so easily on that whole trip, pretty much. Maybe it was because I was sleepy? No idea. I don't wanna say it's hormones, because I really can't identify hormones in the first place. I put myself in denial over alot of things like that. >.< I don't know when I'm gonna stop doing that.

* So many babies in the family now! :3 Makes me so happy! I got to hold four of them. <3333333 So squishy, smooth, soft, bubbly! I kind of daydreamed about having kids a few times while I was there. But give me a break--there are NO babies whatsoever in the fam that resides in boring old Palm Bay. If we want to see babies, it's going to be coming from the next gen., which is me, Stasha, and Dede. >____<;; not happening any time soon. So you can imagine my excitement when I lay eyes on babies I'm obligated to hold and love on, because they're part of the famileh! :DD Man, I love babies.

* I haven't written much in the past few weeks, like I should have been. I promised a chapter to Maria on break, and I totally haven't even much started on it. It's depressing. But since she hasn't asked, I'm gonna take the opportunity to try and finish it so I can surprise her. Haven't done that yet. 107,000 words total, though! That's a novel already!!!! <333 Oh man, you don't know how good that feels.

* Well, anyway, it's nice to be back in Charlotte. I found myself missing friends and my room. My dorm bed is actually very comfortable. I want to buy a duvet cover for my comforter at Ikea. They have a very nice selection. It's gotten way colder, cold enough to make my hands feel like I've stuff them in a freezer for long enough, enough to make my face feel uncomfortable and well, cold.

* I was very glad to find that the same students I've been seeing for the past three months are now mixed with a batch of newer students who've moved in for the winter term. There have been much more cuter boys roaming around, and *whispers* more gays. The first guy me and Olivia met--when we were leaving out of the taxi from the airport-- was a cute gay guy in the elevator. I was so bummed. He was adorable, and a waste of boy. My hopes of getting a boyfriend have broadened though.

*Hey hey! I was totally unaware of the new asian guy sitting in front of me in the cafe tonight. OH MAN, I was talking to Portia and absently looked away when a guy caught my attention when he stood. When he turned around, I almost freaked out. His eyes were so hot! He had those sporty kinda intense asian eyes, the narrow ones anime artists usually put on evil or mysterious characters--that kind. But he doesn't look that talkative or friendly, so I don't know if I'm ever gonna talk to him. But that's alright. If this batch isn't all that, maybe Spring term'll be even better!! keke. I'm so desperate. lol

* Okay, I need to sleep now. More tomorrow, hopefully. Peace!!! xD

be blessed. <3

Can't go to bed until I make a quick entry. I have to make it daily! I have to! Or at least try. If I did this earlier today, I would have finally posted pictures of what I've been doing in class! But I honestly have been busy today. Last minute, though, I did my laundry, hung up my uniforms, tidied up my side of the room, and quickly did my homework. I had to do a sketch of what I want to do my chocolate centerpiece on. It's making me nervous. I think I may have picked a pretty complicated thing to do, with my level of experience, at least. I don't know why I put too much on my plate, but yeah. . . I pray it turns out right when it's time for practical. That'll be the last two days of the week I come back after break.

I want to bring my knife kit with me home for thanksgiving break, but I don't know how I'm going to get it on the plane with me. The only way I can think of it being possible is if I boxed up the bag and had it tossed on with my luggage. I'm going to call the airport to find out, because I have to take it with me, otherwise I'm not baking jack!

My dad's buying my ticket for November 20th, at some time at 6 in the morning (theres not many times to choose from, apparently), so I'm going to have to get up super early and catch the shuttle that leaves from the Starbucks across the street every 30 minutes. Man, it's gonna be cold. -__-

I called my mom today after class. I hadn't talked to her in a couple of weeks. I wanted to tell her I'd learned that if she ate good chocolate everyday, it would help her teeth, and shrink her stomach. The more chocolate liqueur in the chocolate, the better it is for you. So eat chocolate peeps!

She wanted to know how I was and all that jazz, asked about my friends. Somehow, we ended up talking about my dad's side of the family and it was really interesting. I learned things I hadn't known before, like that my grandpa was a very important man (was into politics and stuff), shook hands with former president Ronald Reagan! :D Just interesting facts like that. She also told me that she loved my grandmother's ex-husband because he used to give my mom and dad a huge wad of cash when I was a baby. Cash like $300-500 cash! His name's George. hehe, George. I met him when I went to St. Thomas for a cruise, when we stopped in Antigua. He's a very sweet man, and I think it's precious to see my grand-Lydia catching up with him like best friends do.

So yeah, I've been having really good convos with my mom lately. It's relieving when I get off the phone with her. I think the distance is helping with that alot. <3

I talk to Stasha almost every other day. Either that or every weekend. I rarely call her. She calls me. And gives me updates. lol xD And Dede hasn't even asked about me! She hasn't called once! Well then, she's not getting any gifts from me any time soon. pshh.

Okay. I need to go to bed. Omg, yes I do.


And be blessed please! <33

 As usual, I'm sitting around in work-study right now. hehe. I get paid tomorrow, thank God. I've been browsing around Yesstyle just now, and I've bookmarked a few more things I want. I've also been thinking about a gift for Gwyn's b-day. December's just around the corner and this time, I'm gonna be ready! xD

It rained all night last night, and I slept BEAUTIFULLY. Except for the last hour. I kept waking up after that for some reason. Ah well. . . 

Yesterday, I was going to talk about how rainy and cold it was, and how it took me forever to get warmed up. How I had to take Olivia to the epicentre to get a prescription filled at CVS (because she caught a cold a few days ago) and how I got lost as I roamed the streets to avoid paying for parking while waiting for her. *inhale* And how much I HATE the one-way  streets because it leads you more astray from the street you're trying to get back on. How I left the place in my flip flops because I really don't care about my feet, and how I got back with an empty tank of gas and only $13 on my card. How I wanted to go to Dairy Queen on such a day instead of getting gas because getting out of the car for gas sounded less appealing than getting out of the car to purchase ice cream. I'm so screwed up. keke. 

Well, I ended up getting the gas AND the ice cream. So I probably have like, $5 on my card right now. But only till tomorrow. Yay! 

I've been craving the Sims, lately. But every time I play it, it crashes on me mid-play. I think it's just a hack interfering. So I'm just going to have to delete the hack. pfft. 

One person in our three-person group missed class today, so the two of us had to do alot of chocolate tempering and re-scaling and jazz. It was a little stressful because we were falling behind, but Chef Gronert had mercy on us. I could tell. I think he's pretty cool. He's funny. Says we should be eating more chocolate daily. He actually questions why we haven't been eating from the chocolate racks all throughout class. He asks us this everyday! I can tell it bothers him. We laugh at him for saying it. 

He also tells us to talk to the chocolate, so it'll work for us better. To love it, yadda yadda. And when we laugh, he frowns and goes, "I'm serious. . ."  He's got a strong German accent, but not as strong as Chef Peemoeller's. He's always complimenting Europe's chocolate and bashing America's. But I can't blame him. And he HATES Hershey's. Since he talks alot anyway, once Hershey's in in the subject, he'll go on and on and on. -____- I fight to stay awake in his class. Same with the previous classes. I even had coffee this morning. Didn't help that much. Don't you hate it when you're still awake, but the minute you exhale, you start swaying? HEY! I THINK THAT MEANS I WAS SLEEPING WITH MY EYES OPEN THEN, RIGHT?! I always wondered what that was like. Well, if that's it, then I've been doing it everyday. I can't wait to go home, so I don't have to worry about waking up super early, and in a soft bed! *__* <--- see that face? That's a longing face right there. Actually, my bed's quite comfy, but I'm too restless at night to enjoy it most of the time. With school on the brain and such. 

I started watching Smallville again online. Started the day before yesterday. Oh, and it was GOOD. I looked at the fansites I used to obsess over, and it was so weird. I have no giddy excitement when I look at it anymore. It's such a good series, but it isn't my favorite thing. Not after kpop took over. It didn't stand a chance. lol 

Oh man, and I looked at Tom Welling, and I felt nothing. And it didn't even bother me. What a shame. I used to be so "in love" with him. It was definitely infatuation. Now I think he's to big and brawny. Not my type. Plus, I barely knew what his personality off camera was, unlike the kpop-stars, so that turned me off. 

Well, anyway, I'm in the middle of season six and there's 9 seasons now! It needs to end! I mean, where else can they take it? Lex Luthor's been out of the picture apparently since season 8 or something, and I thought he was a huge part of the story? I loved Michael Rosenbaum; his acting's the best! >.< I'm gonna watch it all. :D

I've felt unproductive lately, so I'm trying to get rid of some unhealthy habits. First, I've stopped drinking soda since Monday. I'm gonna see how far I go until I allow myself at least one or two sodas a month or something. I can do it. I gotta do something about all the sweets too. I try enough of it in class, and I'm always getting ice cream on random weekdays and weekends. And I'm gonna start picking days to go to the gym. 

I spend too much time on the computer. Way too much time. And I sit in front of it even when I don't know what to do with it. I just need to organize my time better. 

t took me this morning to finally figure out why it's been raining so much yesterday. Because of the tropical storm/hurricane! I didn't even ask anyone back home if the weather's atrocious over there! No tornadoes/pulled up roofs/power outages right?! Answer meh! 

I've gotta buy a new hoodie. A heavy-duty one. The two I have aren't cutting it. Not in this cold. haha. :3 

I'm gonna go play sims now. ;D


And be blessed. <3

MY WHOLE LJ ENTRY WAS DELETED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Words can't explain how freaking MAD I am right now. It's not even funny. It's late, I need to go to bed, and I'd just finished typing the longest entry I've had for a very long time! GOSH!

I was going to rant on my day, and it was going to be detailed and everything. And it was all erased with one pressed of a key. FRACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm going to bed.

Since I'm in work-study, I have no excuse to update my lj, RIGHT?! Right.

A lot has happened, and nothing much has happened. It depends on how you look at it. xD I've been keeping my life quite eventful, and I think it stays that way because of the 9-day class thing anyway. Keeps things exciting. I still need to spam on the latest pics, but I'm not near my external hard drive right now, so I can't do that.

* I've been to Dairy Queen like, 20 times since I've been living in Charlotte. Cyril, Yaz, Olivia and I hit up that place usually on the weekends, and we always barely make it before closing. I can't get tired of that ice cream. I'm in love with the Blizzards.

* It's been freezing up here! In the 30's and 40's and such! And I'm still getting ice cream?! Oh yas.

* Yazmin says I'm getting a butt. I don't think so. My butt is non-existent.  If she's saying that, I need to start going to the gym, though. I will not be subject to the Freshman 15, or whatever they call it.  

* I've been to church three Sundays so far, in a row. I took Nesha with me yesterday and she liked it. It;s my cousin Tracey's church. It's small, but it's still good. I'm happeh with myself. hehe I got myself up and went all by mehself. 

* I enjoy going to the Tribe of David meetings. I've made a whole lotta friends there, and they're so loving and sweet. <3 

*(Gwyn, I didn't send your letter today, cuz I took a nap after class, and then it was time for work-study. I thought I was gonna get money from fam today, but I didn't, so I'm a little low on the bucks till Thursday. >.<;;)

* I started Chocolates class today. Our chef's a German guy, and he's a frikkin Master Pastry Chef. O.O;; At first, I was terrified of him. He follows ALL the rules, so he's really strict and won't allow any tardiness. And I have a STRONG feeling that he's gonna grade hard. >.< Well, at least I can be happy about my last grade. 

But he still has a sense of humor, and it isn't like he doesn't smile. So I think it'll be okay. But I'm already getting tired of chocolate, and that's not good! I don't want to feel crappy each time I think about it! It's not fair! 

That's still how I feel about our buttercream icings. We made so much of it in Intro to Cakes that I don't even wanna think about it. I won't even touch the cakes in the cafe for dessert because I think it's just leftover cake from our classes. lol I really think this is one of the consequences of being a culinary student. Cyril says in culinary school, you lose weight because you get tired of the food you make. hehe It's SO true. 

* I plan a Krispy Kreme quest this weekend. hehe The closest one is 11 miles away. Isn't that somethin'?!  

* I went to Starbucks today and got a rice crispy treat. The place was empty for once, and the guy and girl working at the cashier looked like they'd be fun to work with. Made me want to work there. ^ ^ A classmate told me the Harris Teeter grocery stores hire often, so I think I'm going to try and get a job there next year. 

* I know how to make ice cream now! :DDDDDDDDD 

Eh, that's all. I shall update tomorrow. I gotta be daily now! 

<3 be blessed

Long time no talk, right?! I know. And it's saddening.

I've been on a music quest lately. I was in the mood for some Indie bands, so I DLed a whole bunch from this comm called k-inde. <3 I'm addicted to a few songs by this awesome band called MoT. I stumbled upon them when I was listening to a station on Last FM. It was a song called Lucky that had me hooked. But when I went looking for them, I couldn't find a discography to DL for nothing! 

But I found them eventually.  Oh man,I love his voice! He sounds very similar to Nell. xD 

This weekend was family weekend, so it was super busy on the campus for a while. I took Olivia  to the airport on Friday, so I had the room to myself. It was a VERY relaxing weekend. I mean, I enjoy my roommate and all, but just the peace of having the room to myself made me sleep so good those mornings. 

On Saturday, I searched on my GPS for a Taco Bell, but I picked one that was about 15 miles away, all because I wanted to go for a drive. I picked my favorite road: Providence, and followed it all the way to a place called Pineville, which is out of Charlotte. I drove all the way out of Charlotte. xD And I found a new mall! This one, unlike the others, had a JC Penney. <333 Oh man, driving with jammin toons IS THE BEST on these streets! OMGAH!!! IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL HERE! The trees are changing and the houses are so old fashioned and oemgah, just beautiful. I think I wanna spend money on gas and explore to somewhere every weekend. 

I really enjoy my work-study, btw. The only real work I did was last week, which was just cutting papers and such. I just listened to my itunes and did it. I write the best when I'm there, sitting around. So I look forward to it. And I finally get paid on Thursday. XD

I only have like $4 in the bank right now. So I have to survive on that until Thursday. It shouldn't be too hard, since I only spend money on the weekends anyway. On the weekdays, I have the meal plan, and I don't need to drive anywhere, so I'm good. 

Love is in the frikkin air. I just know it. And I'm a little jealous. But whatever. I'm just being impatient and lonely. Makes me really miss my friends back home too, because there really isn't anyone as awesome as SNNN'ap. <33 

I'm in the middle of watching a bunch o dramas. I really like Momo Love (it looks ultra cute. Taiwanese.), Heading to the Ground (with Yunho, ooooooo!!!!!!! <3333333333 he's so cute and funny in this!), IRIS (which I haven't started yet), and You're Beautiful (has Hongki in it and has sparkled a whole lot of interest from me) 

Well, I'm gonna go. I have class tomorrow, of course. pfft. And I need to get my laundry now. hehe. If they're still warm, I can possibly get away with ironing tonight! keke. ;D


be blessed. <3

Oh what a stressful but happy day! 

I have a pretty big homework assignment due on Wednesday and I haven't started. It was the same assignment as my first class, so it's nothing new, I just wished I did it as each day passed so I wouldn't have to do it all at once on the last day. Eh. Pro-crast-in-a-tion.  

( Yazmin's deprived of clubbing. ) - she says. 

Anyways, OMG and Cyril attacked her!! He's an animal. And barked. >.< 

I don't know how me and Olivia's room ends up being a party, but it does. lol Somehow. 

I drove to the mall at night. On the highway. AT NIGHT. FOR 7.6 MILES. It was alright though. I didn't encounter any stupidmean drivers. Northlake Mall is the greatest!!!!!!  It has Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Hollister, Journey's, Hot Topic, and other cool places. 

Class was a crazy one; I had to scale my ingredients out like, 4 times! Made scones. And tomorrow, I'm making Challah dough. 

I got some writing done in work study today, but not much. More than this weekend though, which was only about 2 pages. Haven't even finished chapter 12 yet. And I was supposed to have it done last Wednesday. But that's okay. It's getting there. 

* Sorry, this entry's all broken up because I'm superdistracted right now. keke

And now I'm in my room with Cyril,  Yazmin, and Olivia. 

It's amusing. But yeah, I'm gonna go noaz. 
 OMGOD SHINEEE!!!! That's all I have to say bout that. Oh yas. There's been so much awesome kpop updates lately. It's put me on overload!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XDDD

Elllo peepels. I'm all registered for next term and it feels super great, especially when you're a transfer student with 24 credit hours already in the system and gets to register early for classes. Everyone is freaking out, having sleepovers so they can get up at 4 in the morning in time to add their classes by 6am. xD For culinary students, there are two times you can go to class: 7am--1pm or 1:45pm-7pm. I have AM labs, and I like it that way because I have the rest of the day to myself while others are just beginning theirs. Alot of peeps have realized that AM labs are better. I have my AM labs for next term, so I have no stresses right now. Feels really good.

I talked to Gwyn on Skype last night. It was an impulse thing cuz I had friends over and I wanted them to meet her. It was Yazmin, Cyril, and Olivia. Cyril, though perverted and potty-mouthed, and a total bad influence, he's also fun to be around. He's super funny and terribly honest. But alot of times, he just needs to shut up. haha

Anyway, he thought Gwyn was cool, and that's all that counts. hehe. Yazmin talked to her about Inuyasha and discussed movies for like 10 seconds, then I spazzed for a while, and said goodbye. It was nice. haha.

I also talked to Stasha a few times this week. She told me about Nate, the guy she kinda likes, and it was very enjoyable to listen to. haha. He's a good kid. I approve. I just think the whole fact that he's short--making him way shorter than Stasha-- is a little awkward. lol  <3

Ok, wow, I need to write now. So behind.

Tomorrow then! xD

Today's the end of my awesome four day weekend. XD A lot of people went home, including Ariel and Olivia, so I had the room to myself. I hung out with Yasmine, Portia (her roommate), and Cyril for most of the time.


  • I've been waking up early every morning this weekend and that makes me feel accomplished. XD

  • I rented the movie Mirrors on Friday and Yasmin, Portia, and I watched it late that night. Cyril came in the common room drunk at the end of the movie and we made fun of him. Lol He acts really cute when he's drunk. Like a little kid, literally. Yeah, Cyril likes to drink (but he surprisingly hasn't for a month). He went out with friends and they went to Alley Cat and celebrated a friend's birthday. It was pretty funny.

  • On Saturday, we went on a journey to find a Krispy Kreme, and it apparently doesn't exist. T.T I used my gps and drove there, yet the place physically wasn't. It was VERY disappointing.

  • There was supposed to be an Italian festival downtown on Saturday, but when we went to walk there, it wasn't there either! I was looking forward to the Italian ice and the pizza toss show and the food! But it was alright because we met two people from on campus and they walked with is. We hung out with them all day and went to Wild Wings. We shared two wing platters and tried all kinds of flavors. I think the Thai one was my favorite.

  • Gwyn, I've found a place that has bubble tea!!!!!!!

  • Last night, Yasmin and Cyril came to my room to watch things with me. Originally it was just supposed to be me and Yasmin, but Cyril came in and stayed. We watched Boys Before Flowers and she really likes it. And omg, Cyril liked it too! He actually found it interesting. Lol He's like, “Am I gay if I like this show?” hahah! We've been going back and forth. Yasmin wanted us to watch the anime Ghost Hunt, so we'd watch one episode of each. We're on episode 5 of BOF and 5 of Ghost Hunt. This makes me so happy! Cyril and Yasmin are actually hardcore anime fan's dood! Cryil is so up to date with Naruto, it's scary. He's actually reading the latest chapter of it now. Now I kinda want to get up to date with it. So much stuff happened! Lol

  • Other than waking up early and such, I haven't done anything productive this weekend. I was supposed to get my hair done, clean my room, finish a chapter, and do my laundry and I did none of it. >.<;; I just had fun. <3

  • I realllly dressed up on saturday. I loved the outfit. I got a cute snoopy t-shirt on sale. Bought it because it was only $4. I wore that with my black miniskirt, wore the sheer beige skirt under it, then I wore the checkered suspenders with the striped socks Gwyn gave me. I bought pink glasses from Claire's this weekend, so I wore those on top of the headband I bought from Yesstyle. I took pics, so I'm gonna find the best pic and post it. Hehe

  • I made croissants and danish on Thursday. It was sooooo yummy. Omg, sooooo good.

  • And that's pretty much all. ^ ^




Be blessed.

SO MUCH to talk about! And I don't even know where to start. Man, I don't even feel like saying everything, but I guess I should try and knock it all out. lol

Here goes: 

* I got a JOB~!!!!! Work study job actually, but hey, it's a job. xDD I started today. 10 hours a week, minimum wage. I work in the Safety and Security office (that's where I was assigned to) and all I'm really expecting to do is sit in the back and wait for someone I can assist. I can listen to my Zune, and even use my laptop, and I'm even encouraged to do my homework there. It's GREAT! I sat around for 4 hours, but I had my Zune and I actually thought up some AMAZINGTASTIC ideas!!! omg, I'm so excited for the book now. I just have to tell Maria about it and see if she likes it. I pretty much thought of a good quarter of the end of the book that we need to fill. If she agrees, I'll have the important build to the climax figured out. Wish me luck! xDD

By the way, I work Monday to Wednesday. Monday: 4-7pm, Tuesday: 4-7pm, Wednesday: 3-7pm. 

*  I started Venoisserie class today. It was the most confuzzling day I've had in class yet. Other than that, MY day wasn't swayed, but it was for others. Some got stressed from the confusion of baker's math and conversion of formulas and stuff. My whole class is all females; 20 girls. It's pretty awesome, and we all clean up after each other. It's nice. But anyway, today one guy was introduced to the class and he was white with looong blonde dreads. He was pretty hot. But later, after there was a miscommunication between the chef and us students, the guy apparently made one too many smart remarks and the next thing I knew, Chef was ushering him out of the class. He'd been kicked out for the rest of the nine days. Now that's tough! 

*  And I can't remember what else to say so I'll get back to you on that. lol I have pictures to post, so yeah. I'll do that REAL SOON! Just not tonight cuz I don't feel like it. Didn't have time. And it's late now. <3

Peace ! 

be blessed. xD

haerae: ((sleep))
Nights in the common room are fun. ^ ^ But the group of guys I hang out with are such jerks sometimes. lol I wanted to play Halo 3 with them and Yasmine and Alexis, but instead, they started a new game of Madden 09. >.< You can never win with them.

* I started Intro to Cakes class last Tuesday. xD The first day was a little hectic, and messy. lol But today was much better, but still messy. I'm surprised by how little I get on my uniform, thanks to my apron. <3

*We made convenience chocolate cake yesterday, which is just cake mix cake. It was so darn fluffy! Today, we made a scratch batter for carrot cake, then we iced the chocolate cakes and boxed them. They usually store whatever we make into a temp-controlled store room for a later time. So they don't throw away everything, thank God. Really, all the stuff they throw away is unnecessary. You could feed a starving country with the amount they throw away. 

But I finally figured out why they do it. And it's a stupid reason too. It was allowed a few years ago, but when a group of kids left their food in their cars for a few days and ate it, they sued the school for getting sick. Isn't that so RETARDED?! They ruined it for everyone. Who's stupid enough to eat three day old food in a car?!!!

* I caught a cold. >.<;; but it isn't serious. I got a scratchy throat two days ago and it developed into a weak cold. I have a runny nose and a pathetic little cough. I felt a small fever today, and I was ridiculously sleepy all day, but I took a nap, took some medicine an hour ago. I'll be alright. ^ ^ As long as I don't miss class. I freaked out on the first day and went to Walgreens and bought a $7 cough drop thing that's supposed to shorten the duration of a cold. 

* I haven't seen Paul and Mike in a while, but I've passed them up alot. I enjoy their cute smiles and hugs. hehe I see Jamie alot too, but we don't talk much anymore. I think it's cuz we all have our own schedules and stuff. But I still think we have the potential to go out to eat on weekends and stuff. 

* I went to my cousin Tracey's salon last weekend. Me, Olivia, and Cyril went. Cyril went because he had to go to the bank and I told him I'd take him. He said he'd go with us early that frikkin morning to the salon, just so he could go the bank. It was that important to him. lol I've been hanging out with him, Yasmin, Alexis, and more peeps lately. It's fun. I get ALOT of laughs from them. Cyril and Yasmin are childhood friends and they happened to apply at the same uni, so they act like rival siblings all the time. It's so CUTE! They're friendship's like the one s I wish I had with a guy. They mess with each other, but you can just tell that they truly love each other. He leans on her shoulder, and in the common room, when we watch horror movies late at night, he'll fall asleep with his head on her lap. It's just adorable!!!!!!!

By the way, I'm totally giving Tracey more business. All of my buds want their hair done by her now, since Olivia and I came back from her salon. She makes your hair feel so good! xD

* I have pics of alot of stuff I did over the week. I must post them. 

* I'm starting to really find my way around the streets. I found a Books a Million closer to the campus, and without having to tackle the highway. <3 I have a favorite road that takes me EVERYWHERE, and it's beautiful. 

* I watched a scrimmage flag football game of the school at this park a walking distance from the school. IT'S SO GREEN AND PREETY!!! omg, I have a place to write now! omg, Gwyn, Kriss, Stasha,  this place is so picnic worthy!!!!

* I'm in two clubs: Tribe of David (a club where Christians can come together <3), and Baking and Pastry club (because I can't get enough of it. lol)

And that's about it. 

And that's all for now! xDD Until next time! 

be blessed. <3
