i mentioned the other day that i messed up a recipe and was upset about it. well i'm certainly not one to let failure stop me so today, mostly out of boredom, i attempted the coconut-oatmeal-chocolate chip- raisin cookies again. and i was triumphant! i have this kid's cookies cookbook (how's that for alliteration?) and it's never failed me...today being no exception!
tonight i have to do an information speech in my public speaking class. since food/nutrition are things i'm interested in (and basically all i know anything about) i'm giving mine on that. basically, i'm using the philosophy of variety, balance, and moderation (my top 3 words to live by when it comes to food) and sharing that with the class. i think it'll be okay, though i'm pretty anxious about it.
tomorrow and friday i'm going apartment hunting, and then this weekend is harry potter! my friend and i are also hoping to have a bakesale to raise money for cookies for kids cancer, which is a charity i've wanted to donate to for ages. fingers crossed that it all works out! somehow, even though i've got tons of free time, i feel like i never have time to actually get stuff done. not a good feeling to be heading into the academic year with!
