Attempt at cooking

I have always been a bad cook and as per the bucket list for 2014, I should at least attempt to prepare one dish. And so, I tried making California Maki 🙂

Bucket List for 2014

I know its quite late (end of the first quarter, no less!) for me to post this but I never had the time. Anyways, better late than never!

The bucket list was constructed by my friends and myself on the second of January hoping that we will be able to carry out the things n the list (especially the first one!)

  • Out of town trip with everyone (we hardly met each other after high school, though mostly its because of me as I’m always busy)
  • Finish at least one book per month (I’ll add this to my reading list)
  • Cook a full-course meal
  • Join a marathon
  • Ride PNR to a distant province
  • Take the Civil Service Exam (except me)
  • Get a passport (except J** and D****)
  • Sambo Kojin with everyone

The first and last on the list is indeed tricky. I hardly remember the last time I saw everyone. Add to that, each of us have work and our schedules ALWAYS clash *sigh*

about work and procrastination

today i’m hanging out again at SM Valenzuela. I met up with my friend (member of Entertainers) a while ago, and I used this opportunity to get out of the house and into the airconditioned mall here in Valenzuela.

I’m supposed to do my thesis, but truthfully, I’m having a difficult time with it since I’m not really familiar with the field of computational biology. So instead, i’m writing this while reading some manga >_<

Which brings me to the topic of Bisco Hatori’s new series, Absurd and Fatntastic Opera. Tha main characters really remind me of Haruhi and Tamaki. Yokuto, the idiotic unemployed prince greatly resemble Tamaki’s idiocy and kind-heartedness (or more like, naivete) without the Host king tendencies. anyway, the series is interesting, and i can’t wait for the next chapter!

Another thing about this manga, the opening lines got me, bull’s eye. Anyway, here it is:

isn’t having the sudden urge to clean your room in the middle of studying for an exam

like having the impulse to distract yourself with sometthing completely unrelated to what you’re supposed to be doing

it’s like a troublesome self-defense mechanism, or what is called a self-imposed handicap

in my case, i think it’s become a way to escape from reality.”

The passages above are translations by Omaris Sister .

anyway, it really got me, since i’m having my thesis this term. Which reminds me, i’m supposed to be doing that right now…
