Another pop out of hiatus

Thank you DeadEyes for your lovely comment the other day. I heart you.

So I've popped out of hiatus again to say that I've created a blog dedicated to my latest addiction. I couldn't help it. I had to make it when I can't do any work on it D: The first thing I do when I get back out of hiatus (ie when I get a new computer) I'll work on it and make it known to you, my fellow bloggers. I'm quite excited to get back into doing my things with..stuff >.> and stuff. Anyone wanna send me a computer? Please? -puppy eyes-

Anyways, I'm crawling back into my hole.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanuka, Happy New Year's until I post again

Popping out of hiatus for a sec

The Venting Chronicles continues to exist even though I haven't posted for MONTHS! Ladies and gents I AM STILL ALIVE. As of October 23rd, I have no laptop. When I do get another computer (hopefully in the new year) I will be back to venting :D and hopefully introducing a new blog about my latest addictions for you all to enjoy. Trust me, when I get back up and running I'll be posting more again and it'll be great.

Apologies and re-evaluation

First I'll start with the apologies. I'm so sorry about the word of the day (even though I think you guys hate it). I've had so much things going on that I haven't had time to get them sorted out. Rest assured you'll have more venting in the next couple... Days? Weeks?

This is where the re-evaluation comes in. For the past couple days I've been re-evaluating my life. Re-evaluating the friends I have, what I do etc. I've realized that I have sucky friends. The people I interact with aren't the best for me. I'm thinking that I may have to drop these people and be alone for a while. I've even been thinking about going to the cinema alone, going to dinner alone, you know. I've been depressed about this but I'm used to it so I'll be okay. I think >.<

Even though I'm used to it, it still hurts. It still makes me upset. Is the world so terrible? *sigh* I don't know what else to say. I'm just tearing up right now.

Depressing day yesterday and a frog

Bonjour guys. I'm now starting my day with some Restaurant City and the sperm donor just came in and told me good morning. All of a sudden now he's in a cheery mood and talking to us and so not being grumpy. I do believe part of the reason is that he resigned from his job and has no intention of going back and the other part is because he got his visa to 'visit' my aunt in Oregon. I say 'visit' cos we're not too sure if he's gonna visit or migrate. Right now we're in shit street cos of this. My mum is on vacation and I have my exams. My mum is riding my ass to get a job and all I want to do is relax and live through my exams. I've been stressed out for so long that I just want to relax for a couple months before I get back into it all but the pressure is on me cos I need a job to help us live and because I wanna go to that fancy-schmancy school. *groans* Why is life so hard?

Yesterday morning while I was chilling and being depressed my mum told me to go outside (in the rain) and release a frog that had been trapped in the dog kennel. The dogs were still in the kennel and she wanted me to move the frog so the dogs wouldn't attack it and they died blah blah blah. Bob alone knows why the fuck I went outside WILLINGLY to do this. Perhaps because I was in a depressed stupor. So I went outside in the rain with my umbrella armed with a broom to push/pull the frog outside. I opened the kennel and the dogs instantly rushed from the kennel. Neither dogs nor frog took notice of each other. It was jammed into the corner of some buckets that we keep in the kennel but it was still pretty close to being outside of the kennel. I went inside the kennel and started pushing on the buckets to coax it outside. It worked for a while until the motherfucker started hopping INSIDE THE KENNEL IN MY DIRECTION. I screamed like the girly girl I am and ran out of the kennel. Of course my sister was laughing at me. But a least the frog was in the kennel away from my dogs. I locked it in the kennel til the sperm donor came home and he got it out. Bob alone knows how but at least it's gone now.

Happy (late) Mother's Day!

I hope you guys had a great Mother's Day. My mum enjoyed her day thoroughly cos I cooked lunch for her. She wanted lasagna and barbecued chicken. I have no idea how the two mesh. It was my first time making lasagna yesterday but it came out awesome. I'm proud of it ^_^ My sister was being such a lazy bum yesterday. It was so annoying. I needed help doing stuff and she was just playing games on the desktop. What the heck? So what my mum had for lunch yesterday was lasagna, barbecued chicken and potato salad. I know. Weird combination. Lol. But she loved it. Yesterday the sink just refused to be devoid of dishes. I swear. I woke up early yesterday to wash the dishes so that there would be dishes for me to use and for the sink to be empty. While I was cooking, the dishes proliferated (of course) but my sister washed some of it. After I cooked, the dishes just kept on coming and I woke up this morning to a sink FULL of dishes. I mean FULL. I spent about an hour washing the dishes.

Anyway I guess I should update you guy son my life, huh? Yup. Well I have my second exam this afternoon (first one was last week Wednesday) and I'm not excited nor am I afraid. It's sort of routine now. I really haven't done any major studying mainly because I don't have a lot of notes in most of my subjects. I just remember stuff. The exam I have today is Communication Studies Paper 2. It's the essay writing paper. I'm fed up of writing already lol.

Hmm... What else is new with me? Well I have a new job. It's not permanent and It's only on Saturdays. It's at the same place I had over the vacation. It's boring but the pay is alright. If I had something more to do I'd be great. Nothing much else is really new. I've fallen for my best friend. I think she knows that but ignores me. I'll have to tell her formally so she really understands. I'm gonna see her today cos we have that exam today but I don't think I should tell her while we're in school. I might invite her home or something. Bleh. Life is so hard.

Adventures around the interwebs

I FUCKING LOVE THIS SONG. Thank you.

Trini Cuisine: Two Cupcakes, One bowl

Yes kids. You heard me. Two cupcakes. One bowl. It's super duper easy but with my baking skills, my cupcakes kinda failed. The recipe can be found on the original site here. Did I mention that this recipe makes two cupcakes? Fuck yea. The perfect amount for you and your sweetie without having to break out the standing mixer to cream butter and sugar.

INGREDIENTS
1 egg white
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 c flour
1/4 heaping tsp baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1 1/2 tbsp milk

METHOD

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • Line pan with two liners
  • Add egg white and sugar to a bowl and whisk until combined
  • Add vanilla and butter and stir until combined
  • Add flour, baking powder and salt and mix until smooth. The batter should be thick. Don't worry the milk will thin it out.
  • Stir in the milk
  • Divide the batter equally between the two liners
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes
  • Enjoy!
Next time I make this, I'll take lots of pretty pics for you guys <3

Trini Cuisine: Easy Breezy Cheesy Mashed Potatoes

Oh God pleeeeeeease excuse the name. I was thinking "Easy, breezy, beautiful, Covergirl" when I thought it up.

INGREDIENTS
Potato(es)
Garlic (optional)
Butter
Salt and pepper
Green seasoning (optional)
Milk
Red pepper flakes (optional)
Cheese

I know what you're thinking. "Where are all the measurements?" Well this is recipe is my own make up recipe so the ingredients and the amounts of each recipe vary depending on my mood and if I'm cooking for myself or everyone else. Don't worry about it, kay?

Okay so let's go.

METHOD

  • You peel the potatoes or not depending on how much roughage you can take. I happen to like roughage so I scrubbed my potatoes and chopped them up to add to the boiling water

  • I added salt to the water. I usually add enough that the water tastes salty so that the potatoes absorb enough salt that I don't have to add salt later. I also add green seasoning to the water for that additional nom-ness

  • When the water comes to a boil add the potatoes
  • While those are cooking let's smash some garlic!! I love garlic so I always add lots of it. This time I got one huge clove so I didn't have to chop up more than that one clove
Huge garlic clove!!

Huge garlic clove smashed!

Huge garlic clove chopped!!
  • Now I'm gonna make a rip-off of garlic infused oil except with butter. Instead of having chunks of garlic all through your mashed potatoes (which I happen to LOVE), we're gonna have the garlic flavour throughout our mash without the garlic. 
  • Sooooooo put the garlic in a microwavable bowl and add the butter. Cut up the butter so it melts faster. Microwave til it's hot and voila! Garlic infused oil
Butter and garlic before microwaving

Butter and garlic after microwaving. garlic infused oil/butter!!  The butter tastes like garlic. I swear
  • Now grate some cheese, bitch! I like my mash cheesy so I grated a lot of cheese. 
Totally making a mess on the table

Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeese!!
  • Those potatoes should be done now so drain em and dump them in the bowl with the garlic infused butter. Mash them up and then add the milk and mix til combined
  • Next add the cheese, black pepper and red pepper flakes. Mix until combined
  • EAT!!
Mmmmmm yummmm....

Makes me feel hungry now >.<

Yes I still have my Adventure Time screensaver

The Venting Chronicles

I thought I'd save you guys from another dreary scheduled word of the day and excite you with ramblings from my mind. I went out with my sister and my friend last night. My sister brought a friend (male) and my friend brought a friend (male). Talk about being the delicious fifth wheel! I was in the middle of the two pairs watching Madea's Big Happy Family. I was already annoyed that the person I was going with wouldn't pick up their fucking phone and I started to get increasingly jealous of my sister and my friend.  I mean, c'mon. I'm fucking hot and it's like no one is attracted to me! Boy or girl. Something's gotta be wrong with me, right? So I was already annoyed that I was devoid of a love life (note: my friend had asked me about my love life yesterday) and my sis was being more of an air-head as usual. I hate stupid people. She pissed me off even more. So sitting in the cine and I'm just there. My friend is in her friends lap and my sister is swooning over her guy and I'm just there. It's like I went to the fucking cinema by myself. We walk out and it's like I'm walking alone. Like what the fuck? I honestly can't remember the last time I was annoyed bout being single. Really. And it just baffles me at how annoyed I was last night!! My sister and my friend were trying to make me feel better by trying to include me but it just doesn't work. Third wheels are third wheels. Fifth wheels are even worse I think. Double the ignoring. Double the 'left-out-edness'. My sister was angry at me that I was pissed at her so I just shut up cos I'm jus the rebel kid who's wasting her intelligence on drugs, booze and sex. I just curled up in my bed and talked to people who didn't judge me. My mum asked me if I was ok. 'Course I wasn't! But I told her, "Yea I'm ok." She asked me a second time and I replied just like I had the first time.

I hate feeling like this and unfortunately for me, there's no other way to get over it than ride the wave. I honestly do hate feeling jealous of my sister. Ever since I remember she's been treated better and everyone likes her more than they do me. My parents are more proud of her than me. Like I said before I'm the rebel kid wasting her intelligence on drugs, sex and booze and my sister is Sister Christian. She's almost the perfect daughter. It pisses me off. It really does.

I think I'll end my rant now

-_-

Was gonna post a couple more words of the day today but not only did I misplace my notepad with the words but I misplaced my fucking dictionary.

Sorry guys. No more words of the day until I find my dictionary.

In other news, work is fun if very boring. Oh and today is my ex's birthday. He's 19 now. He and I have been talking a bit now. I've been neglecting some other people though. Like my bff. It's not really that I want to nor is it that I'm so obsessed with my ex that I'm ignoring everyone else. I've just gotten fed up of waiting for other people to make me happy. I would get so upset if someone took too long to reply or if they didn't reply at all. Like what the fuck? So I'm scratching all the new year's resolutions I made earlier this year. Seriously. I'm remodeling my list. My new year's resolutions now look like this:

(1)Learn to make myself happy
(2)Make myself happy

Hence the reason why I don't go out of my way to message people anymore or reply for that matter. I do so many things different now. It's weird. I hardly ever go out but it's fine. When I do go out I have lots of fun and I dress up real nice. I feel good. It isn't a bother to me if guys don't look at me or if I don't have a boyfriend. I'm so not looking for anyone right now.

I think all this is a mixture of me not giving a fuck and wanting to live my life and being stressed from upcoming exams. I don't know. Lol

I'm being watched >.>

My mum finds it highly suspicious that I have a gay family on Sims and that I have no problem with some of my friend's gay friends. I think she's starting to wonder if I'm into girls. No, I haven't told her. Why would I tell my religion crazy mother that I'm bisexual? Really. When I told her I had sex she went crazy. She went even more crazy when I told her I don't believe in religion. Woman thought I was atheist. Then to tell her that I'm bisexual? You must be bonkers. Maybe when I move out I'll tell her. Not before

Oh my gosh, Posh!

I'm gonna be busier than ever in the next week or so. I, however, will also be richer. Hehe. Yesterday I had a full day. I was SOOOO tired yesterday. Went to the doctor with mum and sis. Nothing is wrong with me except I need to lose weight -_- Not a lot. Just a little. About ten pounds. No problem. Lol. Then I went to find out about learning Japanese in UWI. The new term is in September. I'm so excited. Yay! I changed my mind (AGAIN) so I'm going to (hopefully) learn aesthetics at the Pivot Point Academy in Trinidad. It's like the Harvard of cosmetic and aesthetic schools. I feel so posh. Lol. I feel less confused now. I'm feeling happier than I've been in a while. *happy dance* For the next four days I'm gonna be working somewhere... >.> Not too sure about it yet but I'm gonna give it a try. I'm so tired today from yesterday and today when I had to school for Chem -_- then I had a little briefing about the job I'm getting. It's only for a week (thank Bob) and I don't know how this is gonna work with my studies(ish) for CAPE.

My sis just made me unplug my laptop. She was holding onto my foot and trying to tickle me. I'm so tired I could barely fight her off. -_-

Shit. I forgot I have to feed the chicken. Fuuuuuuuuu... I'll do that in a second... Maybe...

So where was I? Oh right. I have a "date" with my ex tonight. I'm so tired. I was gonna dress up and stuff but fuck it. I'm just gonna dress comfy and watch a movie or something then hightail it outta there. You know what? I'm gonna cancel. I'm tired. Shit.

So yea, I'm tired so later haters.

Hugs and kisses.

I found this video this afternoon. It's a mini documentary about the meat industry and how they get your bacon. The video is really disturbing and WILL be hard for people to watch but the information in the video is very important so I advise you pull it up and listen to it from another tab without actually looking at it. Some of the sound is disturbing too so I also advise you lower your volume and listen really well. meatvideo.com is the link to the video. I wanna hear all your views and opinions so feel free to leave me comments. I especially want to hear from you guys about this.

P.S. I'm sorry about the word of the day! I'll get it to you when I can guys!

The Beginning of the End

Exams have started and I'm gonna be doing my studies as well as my friend DeadEyes.-_- so don't expect much being posted to often over here. I am so sorry you guys but this is a necessary evil T-T Exams start in May but I have some loose ends to tie up with respect to schoolwork so I'll be working on that and when I'm done with that I'll be actually going over the work I've been doing for the past couple months. I'm so glad that all this is over. My last exam is in the first week or two of June so around that time is when I'll have time and energy to post more awesome stuff more often. I'm sure that I'l have a crap-load of pics and vids for you guys in the beginning of June.

Thanks for your support ;D
