At PCI, Serena talked to me about typing up recipes for Lynn and putting them all together in a binder for her so she'll be more organized and stuff. I'm working on section 102 right now. FML!
     In class, we made chocolate Bombe, chocolate charlotte russe cake and baba. The chocolate mousse that we used is delicious! It's so rich and flavorful. "miyam miyam!"
     After class, Serena and I talked to Chef Stephany about the issue. She said that she knew it was going to happen and that we'll all go talk to Chef Alex about it. After that, Serena and I stayed after class and made croissants. I hope they turn out well! It was so peaceful after class, no wonder she likes it so much! I really look up to Serena, she's so knowledgable and wise. It was funny because she was like, "Something I think the things that Nancy say are funny" and I'm like, "What do you mean?" and she told me about today when Nancy was basically bragging about how everybody should know her in Redwood city because of her ex. I was like, "OMG! Forreals!" We talked about how we feel like she's a self-centered person. I can't believe she agreed with me! Lol! We are too much alike.
     This is how I fail at life. After making croissants, Amanda texted me asking me to play softball with her. When I got out I texted her and she didn't respond back so I was just about to head home until she responded. For some reason, I don't know why, I met her, her mom and her sister at Safeway and chilled with them till 8. I drove Amanda home while she was talking only about herself. It's so ironic because she was talking about how Kira never shuts up about herself and how she's so disgusted and how she doesn't care, yet she does the exact same thing... Whatever. So yea, I dropped her off and went straight home.
     After typing up the first recipe on Classic Puff Pastry and all the things you can do with it, I accidentally deleted it! FML! It took me over 2 hours to write it! So I had to speed type it. Ughh. I hate retyping!!! Anyways, I should go to bed now... I hope I don't fall asleep in class!

     After a day of doing almost nothing, besides watching The Office and cleaning my sister's car, I went over to my cousins house for dinner. By the time I arrived, my cousins and brothers already left to go to another cousin's house... So I stuck around for a bit and had dinner, then ventured my way over to Blake's pad.
     When I got there, it was just him and me... and of course Kira. We ended up watching Robin Hood, Men In Tights. Super funny movie. Then Kira put in another movie; The Princess Bride, I must say it's one of the best, but not a favorite. Then, she put in ANOTHER movie, a movie that Blake didn't like, it doesn't matter what the title is because we then decided to not watch that movie and we relocated ourselves. Let's just say that in the middle, Kira just starts bursting out in song and her voice is not something you'd like to hear. Eventually though, Sky and Em came home and we just locked ourselves in the room, talking, laughing, and sharing stories. 
     Today was an unexpected day for me. I didn't expect to go see Blake, but I went anyways. Fun day.
     -Banhzaii
 
 
     Last day of ServSafe! I have to take the test on tuesday so I can be officially Certified now! Lol. Yesh, finally! Lol.
     Blake Audited our class today. We did a lot of plating and we also made Molten Lava Cake. Yum! We also made some creme brulee. This whole day was mainly dedicated on plating, it was pretty fun, yet again, I was extreemely tired. I practiced my chocolate fans! I'm getting worse! Lol. I really need to work more on that too! Actually, I really want to work more on everything!
     After class, Blake and I went back to his appartement. I sorta talked to Kira today, she's really distancing herself away from everyone. Then, Blake and I went out to Taco Bell for dinner. Apres, we went to Borders at Santana Row and looked at the food section. Then we sat down and read some FML Stories. Lol! We're so random! We then walked and looked around at Anthropologie, then we went to LB Steak so he could meet with his Chefs again. We went through the back and it was the first time I'd ever been in a legit kitchen! Everyone's so friendly, Blake kinda stranded me by the door, but his chefs went up to me and introduced themselves, then they were like, "BLAKE! You left your GF!" Lol. I talked to Carlos for a bit, then I was dragged to the inside of the kitchen, where I guess "The Line" is at. Blaked talked to his Chefs, he looked so happy, I really wish they offered him a job there, he knows everyone in the kitchen, and he's so cool with everyone too.
     After LB, we went into Crate and Barrel! Yes! I friken love this store! I've always wanted to go into it and I finally did! Blake and I were talking about the furniture and If we ever moved in together, what we would HAVE to get and everything. Then we looked at a bunch of rugs; we decided that we're going to get a shag rug. It's so SOFT! After a while of wandering around, we then went to The Container Store. Love!!! Eventually, we made it to the best store ever, Sur La Table. We didn't buy anything though, just looked around and dreamt of buying things... So Expensive!!! After a while of sitting outside and chilling, we decided to go back to the apartement where Kira was still sitting on the chair and watching yet another movie... Eventually, I had to go home.
     I have a big day ahead of me! Gotta catch up on French, re write my trig notes, clean my room, wash Clover, clean the kitchen... and probably work on Tuiles, Caramel Paste or Chocolate. Bye!
 
 
     Blake spent the WHOLE day with me! Lol. He watched me frost and decorate a small strawberry shortcake. I'm getting better! I just need to be quicker. But anyways, we practiced a lot on our chocolate piping. I have to admit, I'm getting better! Yesh!
     After that, we played some Nazi Zombies, drove my grandma to Oceans, went out to eat at Subway, played more Nazi Zombies then watched How I Met Your Mother. WOOT! Haha. So funny. That's what we basically did till 6. Around 6, I took him to my cousin's house for my Grandma's birthday. All my aunts and uncles were like, "Is that your Boyfriend?!" haha. I just smiled and said that he's Blake. We didn't stay for long, we had dinner, sat around and talked for a little, then left to go pick up Kira from the airport.
     I hecka didn't recognize her! If I was just picking her up myself, I wouldn't have noticed. But yea, we drove back to Milpitas to switch cars, then I went back to my cousin's house while they went home. When I got there, we played Cranium, it was pretty fun. I was my sister's partner so of course we were winning. Lol. But anyways, Blake forgot his phone in my car so He came over later to pick it up. He actually stayed till about 1 in the morning. We watched a few more episodes of How I Met Your Mother and just chilled. He almost slept over, but my mom didn't let him. One day maybe. Lol.
     Anyways, I think I'm gonna watch some of The Office right now or something. So bored...

From Jen's Formspring:

If you were to choose a sport as your career job when you get older what would it be?

lacrosse, even though I’ve never played it in my life, its a good excuse to beat the living crap out of each other. but if that doesn’t work out, then id choose soccer, I’m good at defense ^__^ JESSICA! STOP ASKING MY THESE RANDOM QUESTIONS!!!

if you could switch bodies with anyone in the world and stay like that forever, who would it be? and you can’t say yourself!

JESSICA BANH!!!!!
I didn't ask that sports question Jen!
 
 
     I don't want to be ranting on Christmas Day but I'm getting really annoyed by her. I'm glad she's off in Arizona because I seriously need a break from her. Here goes the rant...
     Even though you're my close friend, you're nowhere near being my best friend. Best friends understand each other, we give each other advice and support one another through hardships. Friendships are a 2-way thing and so far you have yet to play your part. Everytime I talk to you, it's always about you and your problems, you and the countless guys you have friken dated, you and your bad decisions. Honestly though, out of that 99% time you're talking about yourself, only 1% of that attention is towards me. And whenever I DO tell my stories, you're response is always, "Yea. Oh. Okay. Mhmm. Nice" You say you respect and listen to the things that I tell you, but honestly, you don't. If you don't like the truth, then don't talk to me about it. Seriously, when you hear something you don't like, like the truth, you totally zone out and just say, "yea. oh, ohay, mhmm" and it fucking PISSES the SHIT out of me!
     I HATE it when you talk crap about Kira. The only reason why I hate it is because you complain the shit about her and then you go and hang out with her the next day. HONESTLY?! if you fucking hate her as much as you say you do, then stop hanging out with her, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out. Let's look at the math here. Amanda + Kira = ANGRY AMANDA. Amanda - Kira = HAPPY Amanda.
     I feel like you jump from guy to guy way to quickly. Seriously, right after your break up with your ex, you went for Blake, then when I got with Blake, you went for Cody, now that he's out of the picture, you're into Anthony AND Bryce. Seriously WTF. This is like a 3 month time period too, there's no friken rest for you is there? I'm gonna say this straight up. I don't like Bryce. I think he's using you and you're obviously too blind to see it. Who the fuck gives away $800 to a guy she just met days ago. He "claims" he'll pay you back, but so far, he hasn't. He only says the things he does to make you believe in something that isn't there. I don't trust that guy and I don't approve. With the Anthony thing, if you don't like what he does to you, then stop hanging out with him too! FUCK!
     So today, you randomly texted me your story about your ex. Then, when I text you a long story about my day yesterday, you response was, "Oh wow. Lol" Like seriously? I was comforting you through all the hell you've gone through, and my simple story just gets a ,"oh wow. Lol"? That just made me mad. That made me decide to write up this stupid rant in the first place.
     I hate complaining to Blake about you. One, because I'm TRYING my best to stop talking about people. and Two, I'm pretty sure he's tired of me talking about you. So I refrain myself.
     Honestly though, I love you, but you drive me fucking insane. I just need a break from you. That's all I need. A Break. In a few days, maybe weeks, I'll be perfectly okay. Maybe.

     So I ended up sleeping around 3 AM. I got everything finished though! In the morning, I woke up and started to work on Amanda's and Jeff's mix tapes. It was a hectic morning for me... Sorta. Kinda, but not really, stressful. I usually don't get stressed out though. So after, I got everything ready and I headed over to Blake's pad.
      Kira and Sky were both there. I gave Blake my gifts, I think he liked it? I'm not really sure. He said he did. He liked the mushroom though! He calls it "Mr. Shroom." Haha. Friken Dork. So, we all just chilled at his pad till he had to take Kira to the airport. I'm glad Blake isn't moving back to Solcal. I'd probably cry if he really left!
     Kira left me her spare key and her key card to the apartement. WOOT! PARTAY! haha. Jkjk. After they left, I stayed at their place for a few more minutes. I sorta started to clean. I did the dishes and folded Blake's blankets for him. I was BORED, it's what I do when I'm bored.
     After, I went to see Amanda, then I went to school. I gave Jeff his gift and chatted with him for a while. I'm definately going to miss that fool! Class was super fast pace today. We made 4 more sheets of cake, decorated the premade yule logs, rolled up the 4 sheets, and froze them while also dispersing a bunch of cakes to all the chefs and all of the staff.
     I met Blake's mom and sister! They seem hecka cool! I really enjoyed meeting them and I hope they liked me too. I tried to make sure I got their approval, it's really all that matters.
     Anyways, after all the premade cakes were finished, we finished off our Black Forest Cake. I'm proud of my cake! I got so many people complimenting it! After the cake, we finished off the rest of the cakes and gave it all away. I got to keep 2 for myself though. After class, for the first time in forever, I finally went straight home by myself.  Then, I went over to Jen's house.
     There were a lot of people I don't know or I don't talk to. I just kinda chilled for a bit, then Allyson and I went out to Khols to buy a gift for the white elephant exchange. We ended up bying 4 pairs of thongs/panties. LOL! Then we wandered our way to the furniture store and looked at furniture. We ended up talking about a lot of things too. It was really nice. After a while, we then went back to Jen's place and did the white elephant gift exchange. Allyson and I got a nerf gun set. WHOOT! haha. It was quite hectic, Dee got our gift though, Everyone loved it! ahah. After that, we walked over to the park. Chris, Allyson, Chester and I just chilled on the monkeybars. We then played the "I have never..." game with Vanessa also! Fun times. We all got kicked out of the park though so we just went home. Back at the house, Allyson and I went on the boat outside and chatted. Everyone else ended up joining us, it was nice conversating with the sophomores. Eventually, Allyson and I left.
     I took Allyson to Tapx to meet up with Wilson, we talked for a bit then went home. Now I'm at home, It's 1:27 AM and I'm friken pooped! Lol. Just talking to Blake right now <3. I miss him already! He's all the way in Bakersfield. He said he might come back after the Wicked play and take me to Bako with him. I hope my parents let me, I want to meet his family and everything. But anyways, I'm tired. Night!
     OH! Omg! So I checked my stats and I have over 200 views!!! CRAZYY

     12:30AM- (Yesterday)So we ended up not going to iHop because it was too crowded. Instead, we went to Marie Calander's. It was SUPER empty, but I had a good time. We talked and everything. After, we drove around, then Ben showed me the inside of his house. It's... AMAZING! He has his own back doorway to his place so he never needs to go through the front or anything. His house is just really nice. He lives up in the hills that why...
     After that, I went to PCI. We finished our Princess Cake and made Chocolate Sponge cake. We finished pretty quickly so we made a bunch of chocolate sponges for our buche de noel. This girl came in to audit a class. I let her help me out as much as possible. She even made her own princess cake, we had a bunch of leftovers for her to use.
     So after class, Amanda came and we talked for a bit. I was super tired and I just wanted to go home, but we talked for a bit. She wanted to hang, but I told her I had a venturing meeting to go to. Finds out that it was cancelled... But, I had a good phone convo with Kim on the way home. I went to Michael's and found her there! I bought a few things and then we went to go to karate to drop off the cake.
     Then, Kim and I went home and I had dinner. We talked and we somehow got on the convo of having Blake over. Blake agreed to come over so we invited Darren and Wilson, who brought over a shitload of people; Tomy, Arnold, Perry, Hieu, Alex Tu, Alex Nguyen, Eugene,Emily, and Jesse. We all chilled, then Blake came, with Kira and we just did intros and talked and stuff. Then we started playing Mafia. Pretty fun. I wish I was better with stories. I had good ideas though, I just didn't say them. Lol.
     After, we all starting doing our own thing. Some water pong players, some poker players and some who watched TV. Lol. I hope they enjoyed themselves. I enjoyed myself. I hope they liked Blake! Lol. Do you guys approve?!
     Around 12ish, everyone was basically gone. Fun night! Lol. I'm pretty tired right now. I'm not sure if I can fall asleep, but yea... It FITS! Yes! Haha

     Yesterday, I picked up Allyson and Jen and we went to Verde. Hecka fun! We talked and caught up so well. It's nice to hear about how well the group is doing. I only miss a selected few from that group of "sophomores" by the way.
     After Verde, I went home to drop off a pearl drink for my momma. Then I took them to where Geoff lives. When we got to Alum Rock, they needed to pee so I had to make a detour. We somehow ended up in a mexican church... Their bathrooms were HECKA nice!!! We went in, used the latrine, and went out. Like friken NINJAS!
     So, the most embarassing thing happened to me... As I was driving to show the ladies the view and where Geoff lived, I turned the corner, pointed to the house, and as I did, Brent, the 29 year old roomie, popped out of nowhere and was looking at my car. I was hecka freaking out and tried to do a quick smooth U-ie, it didn't work but I got out of there as fast as possible. He probably thinks I'm weird now... I should've played it off and got out of the car and asked for Geoff... So embarassing...
     We had time to kill so I took the ladies to meet Blake. They LOVED him! That night was almost ruined though, Kira and Amanda were there and Amanda was depressed as hell... Enough about them. But yea, us 4 had a pretty good convo going. I'm glad that they like him! They APPROVE! Lol. They also really like Sky and Em. It was nice just talking with Sky, Em, Blake, Jen and Allyson. I felt like they really connected with this group. I can't wait till the rest of you guys meet them! Lol.
     We left around 7ish and I took Allyson home, then Jen and I decided to be random so we went to Eugene's house. He later came out and we chilled in my car and just talked some more. Then I took Jen home.
     Game night! Hecka fun! We played 3 rounds of Payday, then we played Mario Party 2. OLD SCHOOL! We popped out the N64 and battled it out. In the end, I won! Hehe. I got super lucky though.
     I love hanging out with those ladies. I know that these are the people I can instantly connect with no matter the distance. We're a bunch of spontaneous girls with big dreams and we do the most randomest things ever. We go out and explore the world! I love you guys!
     Anyways, It's 12:20 AM right now. I'm going to bed now. Good Night!!! Plans for tomorrow: do laundry, reorganize tool kit, PCI, and venture meeting. Things I need to work on: spending time with family & spending less time with Amanda. I just need a break from her right now...
     -Banhzaii
 
 
     I finally returned my extra toolkit! Yes! Lol. I got to school a little early today and chilled with Jude and Ameet for about 2 good minutes, then I went inside to change. After I changed and dropped off my stuff, I saw Blake, gave him a hug, then later went to talk with Amanda. Good times...
     We have a final tomorrow! Today we made Almond Pear Tart. YUM! We also made classic puff pastry dough and croissant dough for the final tomorrow. Chef added it on.  It was a nice chill day today. I told the class that I was "off the market" and Lynn gave me a hard time but she accepts. Lol! Chef was like, "I KNEW IT!" haha. Oh gosh, they'll never let me live after this! OMG! This chick from the morning class is going to be put into OUR class! Nobody in my class wants her! Apparently she needs special attention and mature people to surround her. Ugh..
     After class, I went to the Great Mall with Kira and Amanda. I guess Kira and I are okay now. We chilled, walked around, and took pics at the Japanese photo booth! Fun fun.
     Then we went to Wal Mart because they both wanted to get their ears peirced. I bought some fabric so I can sew Blake some Pj's! Woot! haha. We went to Quickly's after that. The 2 ladies ordered Strawberry Milk tea (Disgusting!) and Passion fruit milk tea (EVEN WORSE!). Omg, I bought Thai Tea, but it was so watered down! So disgusting! I went to the cashier and told him nicely that it wasn't thai tea and he was such a dick to me! Omg! I was so pissed that I called Wilson Yu and ranted to him. I made him come there so he can tell the guy. As we were waiting for him, we bought some Mochi and enjoyed it. Then Wilson came and spoke to him in chinese. The guy gave me another drink, which still wasn't fixed, but whatever... After Wilson left, we went to Orange Tree and had some froyo. Apparently Wilson's mom was "checking me out". Gross. haha. Orange Tree SUCKS at froyo. But whatever, I didn't pay.
     After, I got dropped off at my car and I went home, showered and now I'm here talking to Blake and Eugene (2 DAYS!). Lol. I'm so sleepy. I think I'm going to sleep soon... Good night!

     Okay, I'm going to finish my blog by talking about my day yesterday, which is Saturday.
     So I woke up early and got ready to go to PCI to help the hobby class. The class was on plating. It was pretty fun! Serena and I did the baking part of it, we made coffee ice cream and tuile. Yum! The ice cream was amazing I must say. I had trouble with the tuile so the hot foods team came in and helped/taught us. There's a special way to make tuile and how to shape it and stuff. Hecka cool. They're super nice. I kinda want to be a part of that one day, but I'm going to have to sacrifice a lot of my time, I might also have to stop going to De Anza or something.
     After PCI, I waited out in the student lounge for Blake. Then we went to Rasputins. I think that's how you spell it. It's a gigantic record store. It's AMAZING! I bought 3 new CD's. I know one forsure is 30 Seconds to Mars (thanks eugene!!!) lol. I don't remember the other 2. Anyways, after, we went back to Blake's place and watched a movie. I don't remember what it's called, but it's a pretty good movie. Then Emily came home and we watched some Gabriel Iglesias. Hecka funny!
     After, we went out to Taco Bell for dinner, and looked for a movie to rent. We couldn't find anything so we just went back to the pad. Kira was there, smoking. I guess she got mad at me for giving her a hard time about her money issues. Whateverrr. Instead, Blake, Em, Carlos (who came later on) and I ended up just watching a few episodes of Psych. After that, I went home.
    Blake walked me to my car and was like, "Don't get into an accident or else I'll have no reason to live!" Aww! Lol. He said, he'd either kill himself or just go back down to Bakersfield because he'd have no more reason to stay in San Jose. I thought that was sweet of him to say, he makes me feel important. I couldn't stop smiling after that. We hugged about a million times before I left.
     So today, I have date with him. So many ideas are running through my  head. Quicklys, Color Me Mine or Tech Museum, BJ's or The Old Spaghetti Factory. Man! I really don't know what to do. For sure Quickly's. If I go to Color Me Mine, I'll go to BJ's for dinner, if I go to the Tech Museum, we'll go to the Old Spaghetti Factory. Hmm... What to do. Lol. I'll let him choose then. I wish it wasn't raining because I wanted to take him out and around SF. Dang... I gotta go back to cleaning now, I took an hour break from cleaning!
