teenagers and their money
I’ve always thought we were a careless bunch, and I kind of thought I had better spending habits than most….but meh. These past few days I’ve been kind of negatory on that. Especially with my most recent purchase. >__> In my defense though, I didn’t know it would cost so much. They didn’t tell you the shipping until after you ordered. I need a jobbbb. Stupid...

One tree can make a million matchsticks but when the time comes only one match is needed to burn a million trees. Time and circumstances can change at any time. Don’t devalue or hurt anyone in life.

Today was probably the most productive day I’ve ever had this entire year. I sat down and finally finished my UT application. An essay, three short essays, and a resume completed. I swear, all I did today was sleep, eat, and do this stupid app. I’m so tired, but so relieved. x_x There’s still some things that need to be processed, so I’m still kind of freaking out about...

vloh2904 Posted: Sun 7/10/2011 7:39 AM Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to mix smooth the clumps of cocoa as I boiled the chocolate and the frosting didnt set! Any hints or more specific instructions on the length of time for boiling so that it will thicken sufficiently, and whether I should add the ingredients to the saucepan in a particular order so that the cocoa won’t turn out...
oh the bright side
The icing doesn’t taste that bad.. but for some reason the cocoa powder didn’t dissolve completely and there are a million little cooked balls of it inside of the icing. And they don’t taste good. They taste bitter. And I already iced between all the layers of the cake.. ): I’m honestly don’t know how to fix this. Edit: I’m going to start over tomorrow. On...
and guess what guys
THIS ICING IS GOING TO TURN OUT LIKE SHIT. ASLDJSALJF I hate when you have to use the stove in these recipes….)));
So I totally burned my finger while wearing an oven mitt.. Turns out that oven mitt got wet or something, and I didn’t even realize it. Also, my twelve layer cake I was trying to make is shortening down to eight layers. ): I even weighed the batter and the bowls and the pans and everything and ksdflasdfj I guess I just can’t do math. I’m kind of afraid the cake is going to...
Another essay down! Even though it’s total shit. I kind of feel like writing the third one, but I haven’t even started on making the cake for tomorrow…
My dad walked in while I was writing my Topic B essay, and he offered to proof-read it for me. I told him no, because I didn’t want to freak him out over what was on it, because I was writing about all the dishonesty that goes on in school and stuff. x__x I think I offended him though when I turned him down. Like he thinks I think I’m good enough and smart enough to write an essay...
You’re going downnn. Hopefully. After I finish you I’m going to bake a happy little 12-layer cake. I’m kind of worried I don’t have enough cocoa powder though.. I need to catch my sister before she leaves for work to go buy some ingredients for me. x__x AND THEN ON TO ESSAY #3.

just finished my first college application essay
FINALLY. :DDD Feels good man.
I reread what I had so far on my essay so I could kind of get back into the mindset that I had while I was writing it. But then I came to the last sentence and found it was unfinished, and I honestly don’t have the slightest idea or memory of what I was going to say. D; Ffffuuuuuu.

I made one for the first time tonight…freaking delicious. I didn’t really have a real recipe for it, but I got the idea from here: http://www.bakerella.com/triple-chocolate-trifle/ I used the chocolate cake recipe I used on the oreo cupcakes, made homemade chocolate pudding (http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/hasty-chocolate-pudding/detail.aspx), and as I was about to make the whipped...
