alison_alice: Tegoshi looking forward smiling slightly (tegoshi)
I'm on Spring Break, but I think I'm just as busy as usual. I have two (three?) tests the week I get back and I need to finalize my competition speech and *drumroll please* I have a job now! Which is also great since I lost, uh, around 70% of all of my money because I had to unexpectedly get all my tires replaced and the front end of my car realigned (whatever that means) yesterday. So, I suddenly am back to super-scrimping until I start getting paid at my job.

But amid all of this, I'm still managing to while away the hours (by which I mean "waste" them) by, of all things, cooking. Not baking, cooking. Well...I did make some strawberry shortcake yesterday, but that doesn't really count because I was trying to use up the strawberries my mother had bought. And I am making pie crust today, but that doesn't count because it's gonna be part of a chicken pot pie, so, yeah. But tomorrow, oh ho ho, I will be forcing this beautiful dish down my family's unknowing throats. Assuming I'm home in time to make it properly. Or whatever.

I need to graduate. I can't handle all of this school crap. I'm so hungry. I'm gonna go make some eggs while I Internet and watch Gordon Ramsay yell at Americans.

I for real feel like an addict. Like, I'm randomly craving dc and asking people to buy it for me and stuff and gah. It's awful. Clearly, I decided to stop myself at the right time! I can only imagine how bad I'd be in a few years :/

Moving on, I made the cake! And it came out...meh? I wrote the wrong age on it (;-_-), I forgot to put frosting between the layers (;;-_-), and (apparently) neither the cake nor the icing were sweet enough (;;;-_-). Well, whatever. I'll get it right one day. I'm pretty sure I promised pics, but I'm too lazy to do that at this point, lol. But I will eventually. Hopefully within the next couple of days.

The Sock! Is complete!! I'm excited! In celebration (sort of, not really) I bought some needles 24" and 32" online today with a gift card Amazon gave me for trading in an old textbook. So when those show up, I'll start on the second pair of socks, hopefully all at once. In the meantime, I plan on finishing up some socks for a friend. I feel like I'll never knit a sock again after this! They're everywhere!! Oh, and I'll also add a pic of the sock when I do the cake (hopefully).

I had a job interview Friday and I think it went kinda well. Apparently it wasn't a "final" interview, but for once my limited schedule wasn't a problem. So I remain vaguely hopeful. Which is good, I guess, since I'm almost out of money again.

I don't know if I mentioned that, but I was really angry that I only got a 90 on my speech. But I got back the notes my professor took while he was watching my speech and I don't even care that I got a 90 anymore. I essentially got a glowing review and would have definitely gotten 100 if I hadn't rushed (but I was nervous!).

So whatever. I'm just super-happy now. Also, I'm posting this from school because 1) I'm at school, lol and 2) my internet at home is broken! It's honestly tragic. I feel so lost without the internet, but I'm coming to realize that I don't actually use it as much as I thought I do, lol. It's mostly just procrastinating from doing other things.

Oh, also! My dad's birthday is coming up and I'm gonna make a cake! I'm excited because I haven't done that lately (I think) and it should be fun. I will try to post a picture, but it might be hideous because I lost all my decorating tips a while back :/

Anyway! I have a test that I should be studying for. I want an A and I'll be pissed if I get anything less. >:|
