I didn't get to write about my day yesterday! Quick summary:
     Went to Cousin's house to eat food. Watched 4 episodes of Grey's Anatomy. Went home. Watched TV. Drove Blake over. Chilled and watched TV some more. Drove Blake home at 1 in the morning. Slept. That was mainly my Thanksgiving. The highlight would probably be chilling with Blake. Lol.
     The things I am oh-so thankful for:
     I am thankful that my current friends are my close friends. You know for a fact that these are the people who will stay by your side, the people that if you haven't seen in ages will still make conversation with you as if you saw them yesterday.
     I am thankful for all the good things that have been blown my way. I believe that everything happens for a reason and that my life has been drawn out for me. I'm not much of a drama person (anymore) and I'm glad that I've been staying out of BAD drama. It's not my thing anymore.
     I am very thankful for winning that PCI scholarship, without it, I would have second guessed my decision onto attending PCI. I also have made tons of new friends. Although we may not be super close towards the end, I'm glad that I've met them. PCI is just like another family to me. We all watch out for each other's back.
     I am thankful that Kim and Darren are my super close best friends, I know that you guys will be there to have the deepest conversations ever, although Darren will always accuse me of being pregnant. Excuse me? Have you LOOKED in the mirror recently Darren? Lol.
     I am also thankful for all my readers. Whenever I blog about the most boring/stupid/random shit ever, I'm glad that I still have people reading what I say. It makes me feel important in way.
     Lastly, I am thankful for my parents. For putting up with me constantly annoyed at them. They have given me everything I've always wanted. Although they get on my nerves almost everyday, it's part of growing up and being human. I know that they will always forgive me if I commit any wrongdoing. This is why I constantly want to clean. I want to make it easier for my parents. I want to clean the house so they don't have to worry about it, it's the least I can do for them since they provide me so much. They are my providers and without them, I'd surely be lost.
    Those are the things I'm thankful for. I have those little things in life too, but then this blog will be too long. Lol.

     I didn't really talk to Asher today. He kinda just left us after class. Wilson came with us to De Anza! YAY! I gace him a BIG FAT hug. Lol. We all went to Chipotles; Darren, Wilson, Donald, Alex, Vince, David, and David's friend. I just got chips, ate it, and left for school.
     I gave Jude my Goldfish. He was starving and was picking off all of the mussel from the morning culinary class and eating it. Class was fun. We made Banana Bread and Guelgoph. The banana bread tastes hella good! I love it! Lol. After class, Lynn and I stayed back for a bit to work on our gingerbread house. We didn't get much done. We just sheeted some dough and baked some. We baked it for too long so when we tried to cut it, it was already hard, but we got some pieces cut out of it. No biggie. I burned myself terribly today. I thought it was smart to melt white chocolate and try to carry the hot bowl with my bare hands back to my table. Let's just say the bowl fell to the ground after 2 seconds (but it didn't spill). Now my fingers are burnt.
     I was supposed to take karate today with Kim but I got home about 15 minutes before it began and I'm hella tired. Plus, I gotta do my laundry so badly, find my uniform, do hw and test corrections, rewrite more PCI notes and try not to think of Asher. Alright, I'm going to go pursue my goals.

     So, I went to Kim's place. We talked and I told her all of my stories. It was nice. Her friend was there but she was doing hw. Kim and I are so random. We talked, drank orange juice and juggles tangerines. Then we tried to shock each other by dragging our feet across the carpet. It didn't really work. Kim is such a good remedy for bad days. I just go over there, spill my life out to her, and next thing I know, I'm totally fine.
     So, I went home, and surfed the net. I checked my myspace and Alec responded! Yay! "lol was helpin chef tomm with something, i was walking up and im like wait a minute lol" I'm currently talking to him right now. OMG! So excited! haha. Yesh! I'm staying positive!

     Dang, It's 12:36 AM right now. I'll just blog as if it were yesterday (again). Lol.
     I woke up strictly at 8:30 AM today. I was quite amazed because I came home around 3, so that means I had a 5 hour sleep. LOL! So, I just blogged, then I went to my dad's shop to get my car fixed. I stayed there for about 2 hours. Then I had to go to PCI but my dad was still working on my car so I took the Beamer instead. Hell yea! Haha. It's so smooth! So yea, I went home, picked up my stuff, then drove to PCI. I got there pretty early and I wanted to go to Jeff's but he didn't answer his phone so I just went to school.
     Breads is so boring to do! I had hella free time! i finished my bagels hella fast, and I finished all of my croissants. So much free time. It was kinda boring. Lol. But yea, we made bagels and some other breads today.
     After class, I stopped by Kim's house and picked her up. Then we went home, switched cars and went to MHS for the football game. We stopped to get $1 milk teas and some medicine for my hand. Then we saw Mrs. Creamer, who got us in for free. We just chilled with her and Jeff for a little, then went to see Darren, Kenny and Brian. It was the last football game! Lol. Right after the band finished, I said my Hi's and Bye's then took Kim home. I was gonna stop by Jeff's house but he said to just go home. I guess they were all buzzed or whatever. I don't know. But yea, I went home and cleaned for a bit. I also talked to Vlad online. He gave me more confidence on Him.
     Jeff came over. We just chilled and I was gonna burn him a CD, but I ran out. I promised him I'll make one for his coop. I also gotta learn Boston on the piano. Dude! His girlfriend hella beat his ass! That's how you regulate! Haha. he has a friken scratch on his face from her. So yea, Jeff introduced me to a bunch of songs.
     I honestly hope that I'm not just a fling. Vlad says I'm not, but I can never be too certain. I'm glad I'm that 1%.
     -Banhzaii
 
 
     I'm sorry, I talk about him too much. It's what I do though, I talk a lot. LOL.
BEAR WITH ME... please?
     I feel like I'm myself. I'm back to the old me. I used to be all quiet and what not the past few days/weeks. I was all shy and everything, but now I'm back to my old outgoing self. I feel like I've accomplished something. I learned that in order to get somewhere, you have to take action, you can't expect things to happen to you out of the blue. That's not how life works (as much as we want it to). I like making new friends. It's always fun to see them and wave to them at school or whenever you see them. That's the whole excitement of everything. I'm trying to not be like, "That person didn't look at me so I'm gonna pretend I don't see them" I want to be like "I haven't seen that person in ages! I'm gonna wave and say hi!" Lol. Weird but I'm trying to be a better person. Key word: Trying. I still have that mindset where I don't care about what other people think about me, but I care what I think about myself. Anyways, it's a long thinking process which I'll save for possibly another blog.
     Santana Row was fun. I went with Kim and no Patty. We just walked around and shopped for a bit. Then ate dinner at Chili's. My treat. It was great and I'm glad I went out. Too much stress. Good night.

Brioche

     Today was an extraordinary day. Trig was boring as usual, but after class, Jimmy, Jimmy, Asher and I went to the library for a little study group. We did the trig hw and kinda understood it. Dude! Asher is actually pretty smart! Only because he goes to tutoring though. Anyways, yea. They're all hella funny. Yum yum. I felt lucky to be in a locked room with 3 guys. Hehe. LOL jkjk. When Asher was leaving, he gave me hug. LOVE! Us 3 just left minutes after when we finished hw. I should've given them both hugs too! Darn. It's a happy hugging day!
     I went to PCI a little later than usual today. I just chilled outside like usual but Jude wasn't there. Darn. So yea, class was fun. We made Brioche a Tete, Tropezienne, and Fruit Brioche. Lol. I put rum in my fruit Brioche, which I think tastes ehh.. The others, I havn't really tried yet. Today was my day to take out the trash! I'm hella glad I went out! So I went downstairs, and kinda peeked outside and I saw Jude and his friends all smoking and what not. So I take out the trash and I walk back in and so I wave at Jude and he comes with me into the elevator. LOL! He's hella funny and nice. But super sarcastic. He's a very comfortable person to talk to because he's hella chill and everything. So yea, I'm like wheeling this massive garbage thing around and we're talking and everything. It was nice. he's hella scared of Chef Alex. I told Chef Alex to scare him next time. Hehe. So yea, he was like "Bring us food!" So I was like Yeah! Sure! And I brought his class one of the Fruit breads without the rum. I don't think he was there, I dropped off food, saw Jeffrey and was like "Merry Christmas!" And left. LOL. I think I was blushing or something. Lynn, this adult in my class, was like, "Gosh Jessica, You're such a flirt!" Because I told her that I liked to take down the garbage because I made new friends. LOL.
     We got out earlier today, but everyone was already gone by then. Darn. Oh wells, next time! I stopped by karate and gave Allan Dale and Mrs. Alino some of my "rum" bread (fruit brioche) and chilled for a while, then we left. It was nice. I hella want to go hang out with Kim and Patty right now. I hope they're not busy!

     LOL! I sit next to Jimmy in Trig now. We got new seats. He's hella funny. He's from Silver Creek too. After classes, the guys and I went to Chipotle (while Alex and Donald went to KFC) and we had lunch. Yum yum! I tried to savor my food this time.
     I was super super early for classes so I just chilled in my car trying to prepare myself for my ULTIMATE plan. So once I got the balls to go, I walk towards the school and GOAT INTESTINES is there! He's like a few steps ahead of me. I was about to talk to him, but his friend came up. Damn. So yea, he held the door out for me. Yay! Lol. So I was walking.. Walking.. Walking, but I chickened out. I couldn't do it. I was dressed for the moment too! Bleh. So yea, I went upstairs and got changed and everything. I felt so shitty that I missed my opportunity that I decided to go back down. So I went to class hella early, dropped off my stuff and went downstairs. Sadly though, he wasn't there. Good thing people WERE there. So I walked past the doors and I recognized this girl from the competition. So we just chilled with a few of her other friends and stuff. So, it wasn't a total loss. Anyways, when I went back upstairs, I passed the student loung and THERE HE WAS, microwaving something. I don't know what, but something. So we hella made eye contact and hella smiled at each other. Yay! Haha. It was very satisfying.
     We made HELLA pastries today. It was friken CRAZY! Ughh. We made Raisin snails, bear claws, large bear claws, hazelnut spirals, and danishes. Hella food! I took home like three 14-in cake circles filled with food and one super full cake carrier! LOL. We donated a bunch of food to the other classes. Class was good today though. I noticed that I finish a lot of my things WAY before anyone else does. AND mines turns out nicely. Lol. Chef always asks me to help him do things and scale out food. Is that a good sign? Hot Foods Team, HERE I COME! Yay yuh! Haha, jkjk. I love competiting though. I love to win. I just don't want to get 2nd place and feel like I've failed my chefs, that's my biggest fear. We got out pretty early today though, but the other classes were gone before we got out, so I didn't get to see him. Darn...
     I went to karate and dropped of some good, then I went to Kim's house and gave her some pastries. We talked and stuff, it was nice and peaceful. Then I went to Darren's house, dropped off some food and now I'm here, exhausted.
     Should I stop talking to Mr. Myspace? I feel like I'm bothering him and I'm annoying him. I know how it feels like to have random creepers talking to you and stuff, it's not fun. I don't know. I feel like he's the one, he just doesn't know it. And as I see it, he doesn't want to talk to me which makes me sad, but I understand. Should I give up on him and talk to goat intestines? My head has been set on him for the past few MONTHS. It's pretty crazy. And yes, I sound like a friken creeper right now, but that's how I see it. That's why I don't like goat intestines or Jimmy or  anyone else. I mean really though, if anything, I would definately love to be his friend. What should I do? He kinda stopped talking to me on myspace. I want him to go visit PCI or find a way somehow where I can actually meet and talk to him in person. Everything is better when you meet people in person. This is frustrating. Tips anyone? Tips?

     I saw him today, before class started! Lol. Let's call him sheepskin. Iono why, just something random that pops into my mind. So I texted Wilson and I was like "OMGOMGOMG!" and he's like, "Dude your head over heels for him". No Wilson, I'm not head over heels for him. I don't even like him, I don't even know him! I just really admire him.
     Trig was good today. I kinda talked to him. I asked him what color does red and green make, which is brown. Lol! I'm slowly getting to talk to him... right? Lol. I just want to be friends, STICTLY friends. The END.
     I had my PCI final today. Dun, Dun, Dun... We made an Almond Sponge Cake and 6 Tartlets. I aced it! Yay! My buttercream was a little off color, but it's alright. I did good. I brought my music today. Lol. We also made our dough for the croissants. Yum yum! I think it'll be done on Monday? Probably. Oh! After class, I hurried and changed and I was walking towards the elevator/stairs. I was gonna take the stairs, but Chef Sam held the elevator door open for me, and guess who was in it! LOL. Oh chess, the short cute guy. He's very shy, but he has a nice car. I love the color blue! Lol. Next time I'll talk to him... Forsure. When it's just me and him and when we're not in an elevator full of other girls and Chef Sam.
     After PCI, I headed to Allyson's house. I gave her the gift! She's my special somebody of the day! Yay! I hope you loved the TOFU! And the fruit tarts and cake. I think the cake tastes okay in general. But yea. We got to talk for a bit, and then Kim called asking me if I wanted to go to SJSU with her.
     At SJSU, Kim wanted to loook for an art consultant for her project so we went to the art building. It's AMAZING! I love it! Cute guys everywhere too! Lol. The people there are really nice. Kim got some of her answers and stuff. We then went to karate and chilled there for a bit. I took some pics of the SJSU thing by the way. I'll post them up when I'm NOT busy... But yea, I gotta study for French and finish HW. Bleh...

     Alan spent the WHOLE day with me. Hecka crazy! He went to De Anza with me, sat in my French and Trig class and we chilled at the park.
     After De Anza, I drove us to PCI but we got there hella early so we started to stall. Lol. But yea, I got him all fitted, got changed and headed off to class. I think Alan had fun, we made Bacon and Chive scones and cranberry walnut muffins. Since I didn't like bacon, on a third of the dough, I put in parmesean cheese instead. I personally think it tastes hecka good! I haven't tried my muffins yet, but I tried chef's. I think it tastes okay. The cranberries are very sour though...
     After PCI, we dropped off some goodies at karate and went to the football game. It was pretty fun. The band wasn't THAT bad. Jen and Allyson are such cuties! LOL. Kim met up with me and we said hi to a bunch of people. After halftime, Kim and I went back to her house and talked. So relaxing.
     Now I'm watching the Office. Hecka funny. But I'm super tired so GOOD NIGHT!

    I'm gonna skip all the boring De anza stuff unless somthing interesting happens now.
     So on Thursday, Chef Stephanie was our chef. She's hella funny. I totally forgot my shoes at home! FML. I asked chef if i could wear my black and white flats but she was like "NOOOO you have to get your shoes or you cant take class" So I'm like CRAPP. And I call hella people. I called my mom but she couldnt bring it to me because she was at a funeral. Then I called a bunch of other people WHO DIDN'T PICKUP THEIR PHONES! Ugh... Anyways, yea. So I just told chef that I wanted to stay for the demo, then I'll run home and get my shoes and come back. So, It was like 2 hours before the demo. She just talked and lectured and stuff. Right after the demos, I immediately left to go home. There was TRAFFIC! FML. It took me almost 50 minutes to go to and from school. But when I got back, I immediately started on my Pate A Choux. I finished pretty fast I must admit. I need to practice my piping more though, forsure. We made Eclairs, Swan heads/bodies, Paris Brest, Profiterals, and Cream Puffs. Then we made pastry cream to fill the puffed pastries with. This was a 2 day thing. So that day, I didn't get to bring home any goodies. Tear. It was all good though. I worked pretty fast but also carefully.
     The next day, we were taught how to make 3 different pastry creme fillings and 1:1 ganauche. We did Creme Chantilly, Quick Bavarian and Pastry Creme (custard). Then, we just filled our Pate A Choux and learned how to assemble a Swan. It was fun. I also plated it and took pictures. After, we had extra time, so chef gave us a Pop Quiz on the metric system. It wasn't graded though, it was just to see if we knew our conversions and everything. I got 3 wrong out of 30. Yay?! Lol.
     After class, I was trying to call all of the karate people to see where Night of Integration was at. No one picked up their friken phones. It's so annoying! I hate it when people don't pick up their phones, you have a phone for a reason, so use it! Damn. Anyways, I went to USC and it was almost empty. So I was kinda like "WTF?" I didn't know where it was! But on the bright side, there was USC Soccer Practice, shirts Vs skins. Yum, abs... So yea, I decided to just go home then because no one was responding to my calls. When I got back on the freeway, I couldn't make it into the other lanes because it was all trafficy, so I was forced to take the next exit. FML. It took me to DTSJ. I got kinda lost, but I saw Chicken Coop, and then 7th street. I got really lost after that, I just ended up calling Darren who tried to help me, but didn't really. I somehow found my way to Falafel's Drive-In. From there, I found a way to get home. Yesh! Lol. Thanks anyways Darren. He tried his best. Then I called Kim and decided to go to her house to give her some goodies. I hate traffic. I took the exit to Kim's house, so I had to take the next exit, which was even worse! It took me forever to get to her house! But I finaly survived and made it.
     Kim and I just talked and had some of my goodies. Lol. It was really nice and relaxing. Then I was craving chips so we went out to Safeway and bought some chips. Yum. Then I got back to her house and stayed till 8:30 PM. I love Kim! Lol.
      At 8:30 PM, I then went to Darren's house because Alan was there. We just ate some of my goodies and watched TV. It was pretty nice and chill. Just sitting and watching TV. The Ghost Hunters show is hecka freaky! At 11:30 PM, I decided to go home because I was so exhausted.
     Now, I'm about ready to sleep. So good night! Plans for tomorrow:
-Clean and stuff
-Take Nicole to Ballet Class
-Black Belt Test?
-Band Competition @  Cupertino!!!
