Imbolc Past and Present

As you can see I changed my blog template. I was bored with the other one, and I like this one better!

So, Monday is Imbolc. I have no clue what I'm going to do for it, but that datebook I got had this recipe in it. It was easier to scan it than to type it up. I <3 my scanner/ printer/ copier! It makes life so much easier. I want to make this cake, but it's supposed to be a light grocery week so I may have to wait. Either way it sounds really good.

I remember this time last year I was writing tons in my journals, and I had bought a gold fish which I named Brigid after the triple goddess. There's no way I'm going to buy another gold fish. I can't keep any sort of fish alive for more than a month. xD I've been thinking about getting some kind of plant I can keep in my room, though. I have a bad record with plants, too, but I want to try again. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what kind of plant I should get? Something that's hard to kill preferably, and not poisonous to our cats who may sniff at it.

I may be writing less for pleasure, but I have been writing a lot for school. I'm always writing papers for my English classes, and now I have one to write about my future career. I'll be doing that today, hopefully I have time to make more of that chocolate chocolate chip cookie dough. Everyone in my family loves the cookies!

My Wish

Wednesday is wishcasting with Jamie! My wish this week is to create happiness in my own life and in the lives of others.

Snow Day! I've lost track of how many we've had, but we woke up to white stuff falling out of the sky this morning. It doesn't look like there is an end in sight either! I think everyone is getting cabin fever. I can't wait for February 20th when we leave to go on our first real family vacation. We'll be in Disney World, in Florida, where they call 70 degrees cold!

Let's hope the snow disappears soon, and the 70 degree days come further north. I'm going to have a nice snow day reading, doing homework, taking care of my nails, and pulling out some of that frozen cookie dough.

School Stuff

I love my new class schedule! World Religions is already my new favorite class, Conflict Resolution is going to be easy, but fun. Personal Finance is going to be difficult, but definitely worth taking, and I can't wait to begin cooking in Chefs! I found out that I got an A on my AP English exam, and an 82 on my French exam. I'm disappointed with myself for the French grade, but I could do worse than a B- on a French 4 midterm!

I feel like such a geek, but I really do love going to school. Learning is something I love. I know that there is a reason I'm taking the classes I'm taking. What I am being taught can be useful for my future. Still, how many teenagers do you hear saying "I like going to school."?

I have 7th period study hall this semester. So as long as I can find a ride home I can leave school a period early. I got a ride from Amy's mom today. I feel bad making her take me across town, though, so I need to work on getting my license! There are the same old problems I've had for months with getting my license, I just don't get to the 'city' enough to practice. I'm fine with in-town driving, but where I need to take the test is 30 minutes away and much more city-like. I'll figure out something. Having your license is a necessary if I want to get a job or go anywhere.

I think we're making chicken for dinner tonight, and having the fudge I made yesterday for dessert. Now that I am taking Chefs class I'll be doing a lot more cooking and have some new recipes to share!
