Christmas has come and gone, it came so fast that I still feel like I need a real Christmas!! I did not feel any excitement on Friday... I had work and then I went to do some errand that by the time I got home, it was already dinner time. I did not get to dress up or finish wrapping presents. Our record player was broken so we did not hear any Christmas songs and it was such a small gathering that it felt like any other weekend. I miss my big family. I miss having all my cousins, aunts, and uncles, all sharing a meal. Telling jokes and playing games... I miss having gift exchanges and sharing stories. I hate growing up. I hate family feuds. I hate that Christmas no longer feels like Christmas. Times like this I really miss my grandfather. He knew how to keep the family together. He was the center of our family and I miss him. Its been more than five years since he has died, and I still feel like I talked about to him a couple of weeks ago. If he were still alive, there would not have been a feud between uncles and aunts. We will all get along an he would be proud of us for being such a close family. But no, they are all acting like children. Since there is no longer a parent figure, they are all throwing tantrums and ignoring people's calls.

Okay, enough of all this and more on good stuff. These past few weeks I have been in a baking frenzy, I have bakes a lot. Here are some of them:

I took pictures of all of these, but when I went to Disneyland in December 13, I left my camera on a bench. I was very excited 'cause I had just gotten a call for an interview for a teahing position.. That I left it there... So now I am camera-less and with no picture to post. So I am posting the links of the sites in which I got the recipes from.

Hamlet: Facebook Version

So I was juts browsing the NPR website when I found this poem by Sarah Schmelling about what the Hamlet story would look like today.

Hamlet (Facebook News Feed Edition)

By Sarah Schmelling

- - - -

Horatio thinks he saw a ghost.

Hamlet thinks it's annoying when your uncle marries your mother right after your dad dies.

The king thinks Hamlet's annoying.

Laertes thinks Ophelia can do better.

Hamlet's father is now a zombie.

- - - -

The king poked the queen.

The queen poked the king back.

Hamlet and the queen are no longer friends.

Marcellus is pretty sure something's rotten around here.

Hamlet became a fan of daggers.

- - - -

Polonius says Hamlet's crazy ... crazy in love!

Rosencrantz, Guildenstern, and Hamlet are now friends.

Hamlet wonders if he should continue to exist. Or not.

Hamlet thinks Ophelia might be happier in a convent.

Ophelia removed "moody princes" from her interests.

Hamlet posted an event: A Play That's Totally Fictional and In No Way About My Family

The king commented on Hamlet's play: "What is wrong with you?"

Polonius thinks this curtain looks like a good thing to hide behind.

Polonius is no longer online.

- - - -

Hamlet added England to the Places I've Been application.

The queen is worried about Ophelia.

Ophelia loves flowers. Flowers flowers flowers flowers flowers. Oh, look, a river.

Ophelia joined the group Maidens Who Don't Float.

Laertes wonders what the hell happened while he was gone.

- - - -

The king sent Hamlet a goblet of wine.

The queen likes wine!

The king likes ... oh crap.

The queen, the king, Laertes, and Hamlet are now zombies.

Horatio says well that was tragic.

Fortinbras, Prince of Norway, says yes, tragic. We'll take it from here.

Denmark is now Norwegian.

Fall is here and its time to start baking! yay! This morning the sky was cloudy with some rays fighting to heat up Earth. Leaves are turning from green to a orangy red color. I even saw leaves falling from the trees as I drove to school. Fall is my favorite season. It means I can wear scarves and sweater. I can drink tea anytime of day. I can bake and no one will scowl me for heating up the house. So to everyone, Happy Fall/Autumn!

Day Thirty

Dear reflection in the mirror,
You are in my past, did you know that. Your image is a few milliseconds younger than me.
I see you every morning; some mornings you are my friend and other times you are my enemy. Who I see in the mirror is not me. You do not look like that person I believe I am in my mind. Years back people used to go their entire life without looking at their reflection, and here I have the opportunity to see you every day, and I can't. It is a reminder of many possibilities of who I could be. A reminder that I am real and that I must live my life to the fullest. I would like to be honest to you. It should be easy to tell one's reflection the truth but I can't. Of all the people I've lied to, you are the only one that I have been the most dishonest to.

Day Twenty-nine

Dear person that I want to tell everything, but am afraid to,

I want you to know everything about me, I really do.But I feel that if you ever actually get to know just a bit about me that you will just turn around and leave. Me acting more like myself around sometimes makes me feel like you do not like me as much. I feel like you getting to me, and listening to everything, you'll see that I am a disagreeable person. So perhaps I should keep everything to myself, to make life so much easier.
