I still haven’t gotten my mojo back, so I guess I’ll just post some pictures of life in the Big Apple. As always, they’re all food. And some snow. And no selfies because my face nauseates me.
With just about 24 hours left of 2014 here in America, I suppose it’s time to have a look back on the highs and lows of the past twelve months. This year has taken many unpredictable turns, most of which I’ve already discussed to death. It hasn’t been the most productive year, but I’ve certainly learned a lot about myself as a person and a writer. And most importantly, blogging became a part of my life. That’s not only my biggest achievement of the year but also one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had.
2015 will be different. Having been home for over half a year, I’m pretty certain my dormant brain will have quite a lot of trouble with school work and I’ll probably have to spend a lot more time on assignments. So I don’t know how frequently I can blog after the semester starts in late January. But I’ll try to write whenever I have time because I’ve always wanted to blog about the college life. And there will be more flash fiction and short stories, too.
Before I leave you guys with a gallery of my best moments in 2014 (all food-related because I’m a fat ass), I just want to once again say how thankful I am for all the support I’ve received, be it a follow or a comment or a reblog or just a view. Thank you for liking and believing the one thing I feel truly passionate about. I hope at least one of my posts have touched you or inspired you in some small way, in the same way that so many of yours have moved me. It’s been a fabulous first five months, and look forward to sharing more stories with you in the months or years to come. Thank you again.
Have a blast tonight. Get pissed drunk and crush 2015.
Don’t have much to say today other than that I hope you’re all having a fantastic Christmas with family or friends or just people you don’t want to kill. I’m in Palm Springs right now with my brother and dad. Everything is freaking closed so all I have are some delicious foodporn pics to share. It’s still one of the better Xmases I’ve ever had just because I love the company so much. May you all eat so much that you can’t even get up to retrieve all the sick ass presents.
Never been a coffee lover nor an early bird, but Urth Caffe converted me. That green tea latte was one of the most glorious things I’ve ever swallowed. Ha, that’s what she said. But really, the food is incredible, the pastries are delectable, and the coffee…well I’ve already mentioned how good the coffee is. It’s the quirkiest little coffeehouse in LA. Actually, it has a few locations spread out in LA, but the one in Santa Monica is the most popular. So if you do decide to visit the most overrated beach in the world, do stop by and grab the best latte in the world.
The electricity just died on us. I only have 10% battery left on my phone, and my wonderful brother used up my laptop’s remaining 20% as well, so unfortunately I can’t write anything interesting today.
Hope everyone had a not so terrible Monday, and here’s a random picture of the selfless little candle that self-immolated to keep me company.
I’ve been writing a bit too much lately, so today I’ll just do a photo blog. During summer break, my friends and I pigged out almost every day at our favorites places in Orange County, which isn’t exactly famous for its restaurants but food’s always good with company. Here are some of the highlights:
I wish I have healthier pictures to share, but we just aren’t about that life. We’ll probably regret that in 10 years time. Also, the mini cupcakes are homemade.
I didn’t have time to blog yesterday because it was my mom’s 49th Birthday. My brother and I, with my friend Alyssa’s help, basically spent half the day baking her cupcakes and setting up a “surprise party” that didn’t quite work because she came home too soon. I also had to dig her birthday card out of the trash because I adcidentally threw it in there, but it all worked out in the end. Here’s what the cupcakes look like:
Alyssa is the genius who taught us how to make these cuties and did 75% of the work. The petals are mini marshmallows cut in half and dipped in dyed sprinkles.
