Cake Pops!

I'm finally finished with this semester of school!!! So excited!

I made cake pops with my mom last night and it was pretty fun but somewhat hard work with the chocolate dipping. -.-
We had to keep re filling the chocolate dip supply and reheating it. That stuff cools off fast after dipping! (I know, big deal right? But mind you, we were doing this at like 11 at night and I was up since 6.)

Lots of work but it was fun because it was like working in a candy shop making pretty chocolates. ^^
At the very end, we would glaze contrasting colored chocolate over the cake pops so they looked just like the chocolate factory sweets!

And, funny thing is, I came to work today and my manager showed me this huge box of See's chocolates and said someone left it for us so we can all eat it. O_O
They're gonna make me so faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat...

I'm planning on bringing in some cake pops for my co workers since they are so SWEET, not even our own family could eat them all. I probably could eat only one in a day. Kills off your sugar fix in an instant.

Funny how life can get so busy in mere seconds

It's almost the end of the semester and I'm so happy since I'll be over with these classes that I've been sticking it out with (since I had changed my major a couple months back).

But now, I have to focus on getting a 'career' entry job which will take me some time. Finding a job is a job in itself... -__-
I'll probably have to focus on financial aid too so that kind of sucks. I like to pay off my debts at the moment. I'm sure many people hate the feeling of something hanging over their head all the time.

All of this extra stuff I have to do is interlinked with the career in question that I changed to. I'm sure that it will be a good idea this time to actually get a job in the related field to get a more clear idea of the job itself. That was my mistake with what I had been doing for these past two years. Although I'm happy that I can at least get an associates degree for all the time I put into it.

I hear other students telling me that it's common for major changes in uni but I still feel shitty about the whole ordeal. I feel so fortunate to have a supporting family. I just wish I were smarter in the beginning. I'm not sure how it "could have been" if this or that happened before. I don't like to think about the past.. I just want to focus on the future. I think it's hard sometimes because my parents might bring up mistakes I've made before. They're probably trying to prevent me from making these mistakes again but bringing up shit from the past just makes me feel depressed and unmotivated. Sort of working against what it's meant to do...

Anyway, I'm just gonna continue to stick this mothafucka out and finish the semester. Although I'll try to job hunt in-between.

New Yogurt Place-!!! ^__^

I am so happy right now. Today I got to go to The Red Mango with my mom that recently opened up closer to where we live. Their yogurt is so yummy and I feel so fortunate that we have one that's in a much more convenient location. All the other yogurt places that we would go to in the past were way off somewhere in another city and it really sucked having to drive so far just to get a nice cup of frozen yogurt. So we wouldn't get frozen yogurt that often... T^T

But now, we can go as often as we want without feeling the dread of a long drive and fearing traffic on the way home. ^__________________^

The yogurt and toppings there are self-served so it's pretty cool. Although the yogurt machine takes a bit of getting used to. The yogurt comes out fairly slowly.

Their original and pomegranate yogurt, I think, are their killer flavors. Those are both soooo good and perfect. One is sweet/tangy and the other is sweet but with a very slight tang to it. There were a lot of other flavors too like Blueberry, Apricot, and Banana. I didn't really want to try those but I did try: Original, Pomegranate, Vanilla, Coconut, and Pumpkin (o.O). I know, PUMPKIN?! I thought it was a pretty weird flavor to have but my mom tried it and gave me some so I ended up tasting. It was actually not that bad but I personally don't care for pumpkin as a yogurt flavor. All the other yogurts I tasted were quite good but the Original and Pomegranate were definitely the best. :D

Yessssss! Pomegranate!!!  \( "^ o ^" )/  If your Red Mango has only self-served, maybe one day you can make your yogurt look this good (once you master the yogurt machine) lol. Mine didn't look even close to this pretty. lmao It was so yummy though! ^x^

Another great movie: Hp7 Pt1

This past Monday, I watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt1 with a friend and it was so awesome! The movie was filmed brilliantly. There's a lot of thrilling parts along with many buildups of tension, even if this isn't the most exciting half of the book. The director did a great job with it.

The acting was also very convincing and all the actors in my opinion did an amazing job in their roles. I was moved.

I didn't compare the movie to the book since I hadn't read it in a while. I chose not to read it beforehand. I think people should enjoy the movie for what it is and not expect it to be a complete visual of the book.

If you're thinking about seeing this movie, the extra money for going to an earlier screening is definitely worth it. I usually go to AMC theatres and it's $10.50 for the regular price until around 2-3 weeks later when people can start using coupons. I didn't wanna wait around and have some random idiot spoil the whole movie so I saw it earlier with a friend. I'm so happy that all the movies I've been seeing at full price so far have been nothing less of superb.
