I forgot that I was posting in my journal so here's an update!
School is almost over with for the semester. I am already done with one of my English classes and my meteorology lab. Although, I have this huge paper for psychology due on Tuesday. I have not started and it doesn't surprise me.. I am a horrible person!! Oh well, I'll get it figured out.
End of school also means end of job. I am looking for a new job asap.
So, I have been semi crafty lately. I've been sort of busy with school and all and I just haven't been motivated. I did however make a hand bag for my friend and some cloth pads for myself, I can't wait to use them. I also bought a menstrual cup- the moon cup by keeper. I recommend checking them out, I'm trying to convince my baby sister to get one but I think my efforts are futile. There are some great communities here on LJ and websites with more info if anyone is interested.
I have the strangest craving for roasted marshmallows.. mmm it sounds SO GOOD. I can't wait to go camping!!! I bought a nice hiking internal frame back pack. I also have been gathering up other backpacking supplies and I am really looking forward to going.
Most of the time I don't like Milwaukee.. but sometimes, like last night, I do like it here. I walked down town with my friend Kelly and it was nice and warm (60'F). We stopped at an Asian grocery store and I got some Coconut Jam.. I haven't tried it yet and I have no idea what to put it on but I sure do love coconut! We then ate at a Thai restaurant, EE-Sane and it was nummy.
Right now I am starving. Chris is not home so I don't feel like cooking and haven't had anything to eat today. But, I went out to eat last night... I did have some gardettos earlier but they are hardly a meal.
I really haven't done anything today. I played animal crossing for longer than I'd like to admit. I spent some time on the interweb, talked to my sister for like an hour, and the experimented with diff ways to make my cloth pads. I'm going to continue to do nothing.
Oh yeah, I am totally in love with old Italian cinema. I watched part of Nights of Cabiria last night, but it was late and I fell asleep. I shall watch the rest tonight. Well, I can't think of anything else to say so here's a picture of the bag I made. I swear, I can make more than just bags, they are just so easy and the patterns are so easy to not use and manipulate :) I made a shirt the other month but it sits stupidly.. I am going to blame the fabric. I've got a bunch of patterns with stuff I want to make so I'm sure I'll get around to it.Life Lesson #7
- If you don't drink much milk but still like to use it for cooking buy a small box of powdered milk. It's super easy to stir up a glass and it doesn't taste too bad. Another great substitute that I love is using applesauce instead of eggs in baking recipes- especially corn bread! ( I really should go eat something...)
& here's that bag I was talking about- that little star is a button and there's one on each side to hold that large pocket shut. It's pretty large- It can fit notebooks and books, and has some nice inside pockets and is fully lined:
