This year, a lot of my friends are studying abroad. It's a great opportunity that I believe everyone should have because people should always learn about other people and different cultures. However, I'm also finding it very hard to be separated from some of my friends for so long.
For example, I had two weeks off from school for winter break. During this time, I usually go over to my friend's house and bake special things. As you can see, baking/cooking is one of the things that is very close to my heart. I associate food with love and happiness because those are the emotions I feel when I'm baking/cooking. I associate baking/cooking with my friends, because I'm always asking them to try something, or to share recipes. Yet, many of them are away, and I'm not able to do those things as often as I would like to.
I think in life, you need to identify the little things that are important to you, instead of dwelling on the negative things. I find that I dwell a lot on negative things, instead of opening up my eyes and realizing what's important. Yes, the distance making things hard (no baking parties until May) but the people who are away are a part of my and always will be. That's never going to change. I love you all.
Since I'm on winter break, I've been studying for my exams and test that are on the week after break. Hahah that's just a joke, I realized that today, I should really get my homework done, so of course, at the last minute, I'm starting it. It's very strange, why do teachers give us homework the week after break, but tell us not to worry or study during break! How are we not supposed to worry or study if we know they're going to smack us with a billion tests? I also realized that SAT prep will start soon, so I should get started on that too. I mean, if I want to be a chef, I gotta be smart too, right? So in one of my SAT prep books, they told me about the writing section. On my PSAT, I scored a 4 out of 12 on my writing section. Yeah, kinda sucks doesn't it? Ah well I'm not going to let it bother me. The book said that I should open up a blog and write about everything possible. So here I am, writing everything possible! I think I'll mostly write about food (since I love it so much) but there are going to be times where I write about other things (relationship advice, what type of jeans to wear, colors that match with skin tone) the works! Besides, it'll be a good way for me to breathe during my crazy days of school.
