Just do it!

My friends and I were going to a coffee shop, as we do these days, and came across a chalk-wall. It was pretty cool! I honestly don’t think about what I want to do before I die.

But like everyone I do have so many things I want to do, I just don’t think about them so much that I would make a wall for it. For instance, I want to go on a girls-trip-multiple months in Europe back-packing vacation, I want to meet my best friend again, I want to walk across a city (a whole city), I want to make my own ice-cream, I want to graduate and settle down on the island, I want to raise my future kids hydrogenated-oil/processed-sugar/dairy/meat-free, and have them go to my dream schools, etc…

Some of the things on this wall are pretty humorous, and some are very sad and touching. Also, I am very tempted to call that number. In other news, I found out that my friend is to be engaged in less than a month. When I heard this, my heart dropped. I hate hearing it from other people. We used to be so close as you all know…and I was supposed to be the first to know. Also its not 2025 yet. I guess its just pay-back for when I got married without letting anyone know. Regret, all the time, contentment…I’m getting there. Thats what I have to keep telling myself. Well, I shouldn’t explain it here. I am not a good example for the young people here. Its whatever.

Some tips I can give to the youngsters, which I may have written in previous posts:

Kids, stay in school. Marry the love of your life. Stay grammatically correct, because uneducated beings are very unattractive. Stick to the conversation. The most unattractive man, is one who goes off topic and says irrelevant things. just to deem himself correct. I know. Its disgusting. Like really, YOU DON”T MAKE SENSE. YOU FOOL.

Follow these and it will make your goals “before you die” a little bit easier. Actually don’t listen to me, I don’t make sense. I disgust myself.

Me.

I don’t really introduce myself to people in real life. I am that person who would tell you who I am if you really asked, but if you didn’t I would be fine with not mentioning my name, where I’m from, etc… I don’t want you to think I am saying this to act ‘cool’ (idk why that is in air quotes), its just the way I am (also I’m not that cool). Its actually nice getting to know people and having people getting to know me. BuzzFeed already knows me, as they do everyone else on earth. Deny it if you will, but its some sort of statistical sorcery I tell you:

You guys probably know about how I escape this world accidentally and sometimes purposely. Its through my dreams or lucid dreams (I think I am capable of doing this…its pretty cool). The time I get the perfect dream is in the morning…I wake up at 7:30am when my alarm goes off, use the restroom, and then I go back to sleep because I love the escape. I feel so magical. I then sleep for 2.5hrs and experience the best scenarios, with the same characters or the ones that are obviously the only ones invited. I tweeted this morning right after I woke up from this awesome dream, as most of you DO NOT KNOW, since I only have a lousy 4 fake followers on Twitter, thank you very much (LOL. JK you can follow me if you want, but I am fine with the 4 trolls).

So that is two things about me I wanted to share with you guys today. NOT THAT IT MATTERS (its fun acting salty when you really aren’t. K bye.)

But seriously…

So I have this tendency to stay quite instead of saying something awful and false. That doesn’t mean I won’t say something awful and truthful. I also stay quiet when people make fun of me as to ignore the comment, because let’s face it, a false comment that is meant to be funny is not funny. People don’t understand this.   I’ll laugh when something is true and funny because it is simply  true. But when it’s not… it’s not. Simple right?

Well some people have this weird sense of humor that can sometimes involve violence, self hate (which is not ok at all), death (worst kinds of jokes right after crude humor), and just plain nasty things like bodily execrations… why is that even funny to you people? Men are the ones who make these stupid things are funny, still stereotyping in 2017, from experience of course. For instance, it’s not funny to make fun of your significant other, especially in front of people. And if you do, expect it to come back to you, but way more savage. Laugh about it then. I dare you.

When something is true and it bothers people around you, try to fix it. Laugh about it and accept it. Don’t make something up you found on the internet and blame that person for something so random and not proven, if not false.

Back to this:

I was totally not kidding.

I think I’m funny.

‘As we all do’, right. Blah blah blah. But seriously I kinda am. I mean if you wanna take being funny as a compliment, I would be blushing. I wish I had something else going for me.

What about beauty? Bahhaha. Jk. Each to their own. Here are a couple of not so funny moments where I thought I was funny. I’m not bragging by the way, it’s all in good humor LOL get it! 😂 I should stop before I hit a wall… cause I was going on a rampage LOL. Got’em. Not really, I’m just pretending to be funny LOL. Who doesn’t get these, raise your hand… ah I’ll give mine a rest now. 😂 Woooooo 2:30am does this to you.

Ok. And omg can you believe it’s almost a new year!? No joke. Sorry, I want you all to pine for my humor.

The Amazingly Edible-oh-I-can’t-get-enough Healthy Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies

I always trash talk my cooking and baking…Its not because I can’t cook/bake. Its mainly because I don’t like to when I make food or baked goods “healthy”, people in my home aka the family members, don’t eat the darn food. I usually don’t follow the instructions or the ingredient list for the matter of fact [haha ‘for the matter of fact” haha, I’ll use this in real life now]. But, this time, I did follow the directions…not so much the ingredient list. Its ’cause  I be cool like that. I fell short of the ingredients needed. Yea, so since I live in Chicago now, I was so confused on where everything was…so me being smart and stuff, I ‘thought’ we had all the ingredients, but we didn’t. Well, we kinda-sorta did have all the ingredients, but I guess i didn’t want to use them. Ok, fine, I actually was going to use them, but then while I was taking everything out to prep, I cringed and I tried to make it healthy…AND I DID. HA. 

Here’s the Original Recipe

“Chewy oatmeal cookies packed with walnuts and chocolate chips are easy to make, and your family will love the combination of flavors.”
INGREDIENTS:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
3. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

This is how they came out after I switched up a few things: 

My midnight craving has begun. Great.

My midnight craving has begun. Great.

Looks great huh? Since I don’t usually take part in such activities like, baking or anything really haha, I had no idea what 1 cup of butter looked like…and found out its TWO STICKS. Yea so, I replaced it with 1 stick and 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt. Instead of using 3 cups of ALL-PURPOSE-BAD-FOR-YOU-FLOUR, I used 3 cups of White Whole Wheat Flour. SCORE. I used parchment paper so I don’t add excess oil/greasy to the cookies; its also easier afterwards to just pick up the whole sheet of paper and lay it onto the cooling rack instead of individually trying to transfer them. Yea, I’m lazy, but smart. Maybe. Oh, the instructions say to have them in the oven for 12 mins, but since I replaced some things, I had them in there for 14-Perfect-mins.  You can refrigerate the batter unless you plan on making all of them at the same time. WARNING: don’t make them all at once, cause ‘even a lot of a good thing is bad for you’ blah blah blah, unless you have a lot of people coming over, then its fine. You won’t be able to resist just two. Thats, why I made 12 at a time for three days, cause my family and myself included, don’t have self control over good food, even though this recipe was HEALTHY. Oh, and I did everything by hand [haha i read this over, I mean not really stirring with my hands, I used a spoon and a fork lol…but, no mixer or whisk. Yea, this is embarrassing, but I couldn’t find those things, not even the measuring spoons. I used a normal dessert spoon for the normal-person-baking teaspoon and a normal cereal spoon for a normal tablespoon. I only found the measuring cups.

Ok, Happy eating, or bingeing on these cookies, ’cause you’re too cool for my warning.

Peace!

 

Ignore the fortune.

Hello,

   I’d like to write a serious normal post for you all…or even for myself. The time is exactly 1:41am here in New York [as I typed the time atleast]. I have been a-not-so-motivated-person for the beginning of this summer break that has been granted to me, Alhumdulilah. However, yesterday I did try, mind you. I went to sleep early; in our home this means around 11:30pm. I did fall asleep, which didn’t make sense, since I woke up super late that day. The next morning I woke up at 5:15am. It was an accomplishment, but then I wanted to sleep for a bit more, because my darn ego wasn’t very satisfied. I layed there for a good three hours (I think), and fell asleep. But, lo-behold [is this right?], woke up around-um-idk- 12pm. And then, fell asleep at 8pm, woke up at 10:30pm. OMG. What’s wrong with me. Ugh I hate this. Urg… Dang, pardon my rage.

A poem

So a post, I have finally typed.
For this late I’m fairly hyped.
My mind likes to wonder.
Stories of the past, it ponders
It hurts, but then it doesn’t.
It can if I let it, but it mustn’t.
A fortune cookie once read,
‘Not to analyze the tales all dead’.
I laughed and just ate the cookie.
That was me ‘before’. A rookie.
Well, why should I turn my head,
For every moment, I certainly do not dread.
They make me who I am.
And as for analyzing every bit of time…
I shall keep doing so. It is that sublime.
-Eva626

Well, that took a whole other turn. Lol. It kinda does tie into this post…especially the beginning. I think. See, still not gonna stop analyzing. Dumb fortune cookie. I wish I had one right now.

Oh, a treat for you all.

Yum.
Peace out.

Thinking about other things

I know this isn’t good, but I needed to take a break from frying my eyes out [I can’t wait till this semester is over]. So what have I been thinking about? A lot of stuff. They range from blah to blah to blah. Just kidding [not really]. Ok so, since I can not wait till summer vacation [yayayay], I planned out my summer, like everything else I plan out. Even if my plan doesn’t go according to the plan, which is mostly mine or someone else’s fault, it doesn’t really matter. Its all about the big picture. You think [some more lol] and realize that this [the-not-going-through] actually benefitted you after all. Alhumdulilah! But, its fun to plan and distract yourself for a long duration of your life bit of time.

Some food:

Hummus, Chicken, and lentil soup YUM. Oh and pita bread

Hummus, Chicken, and lentil soup YUM.

– Get Married [LOOOOOOL]
– Have kids
– Travel somewhere besides from Chicago to NY and from NY to Chicago and from etc…BLAH

– Bring happiness to people I encounter. Er, thats tough. My smile isn't so obvious. :/ [thats actually how my smile looks in real life…]
– Enjoy the outdoors
– Avoid getting sunburnt
– Then go back to Chicago. NOOOOOOO

I’m going to sleep. The last bullet point just killed my mood.
Peace out!
