“In nine lifetimes, you’ll never know as much about your cat as your cat knows about you.” –Michel de Montaigne

One fun thing that did occur this week, however, is my cat Olivander turning one year old. I didn’t throw him a party or make him a kitty cake but I did have a mini photo shoot with him. We both had fun and the photos look great. Of course, they are nowhere near professional, but it was worth every second. As you can see in the photo, we used some wand props because he is named after the great Ollivander himself…just a little spelling difference.

Another thing that happened this week was that I finally met with a counselor in college who knows her stuff. It’s a miracle, I know. I am on track on she will hep me fill out all of my paperwork for every degree when it is time. She also will help me see what universities will be accepting spring 2020 admissions so that’s awesome. I was only in her office for about ten minutes and it helped me so much more than any 30-60 minute meeting I’ve had with counselors before. She was on top of everything and had my file all ready for me before I even went into her office. She answered all of my questions and was very straight with me and for that, I am grateful.

I just put all of the music from my external hard drive onto my new laptop and started listening to music I haven’t heard in so long. One of my personal favorites my freshman year of high school is below and I felt all of those feelings and memories come flooding back. Have you every had a moment like that with music? You haven’t heard a song in 10+ years and when you heard it again for the first time, everything comes flooding back. It’s crazy how music can have such and impact on us, for good or bad.

Anyway, I know this was kind of a random catch up with Carra post. I hope you enjoyed it and enjoy the song below. I hope you come back next week for more content. Have a great week and weekend!

I apologize profusely for not posting thus far in 2019. Ironic how it’s one of my goals, isn’t it. Anyway, I don’t have much time to post today but let me tell you a few things about 2019 so far.

  1. This semester is already hard. I had to drop a course, I recommend not taking more than one English class at a time.
  2. I finished counseling, the counselor felt I was doing better and we came to an agreement that if I need it in the future, I will make an appointment.
  3. I got a new laptop. I sold my old MacBook then was able to buy a nice Acer from BestBuy.
  4. I had a great birthday weekend this past weekend.
  5. We rearranged pretty much the whole house this weekend and I am not in a bigger, brighter room looking out into the backyard.
  6. I am happy with this year, though not much else has changed.

I want to hear how your 2019 is going, one month in. Let me know in the comments bellow. As always, thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you find great content here.

So, today I would like to talk about something that occurred just a few hours ago. It really all started a couple of days ago. My soon-to-be sister-in-law has a birthday today (22) and I came up with the BRILLIANT idea to make her cake. Well, there was a cake that I had seen and I was dying to make it. HAHAHAHAHAHAH! Being more of a beginner baker, I didn’t realize how “in over my head” I was. It wasn’t horrible (it’s standing) but it wasn’t as easy as the lady made it seem. No worries, it will work.

Anyway, this is the link to the cake I made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpNnCB4Mvk4&t=269

If anyone attempts it, let me know how it turns out for you! Don’t give up, either, because you CAN do it. Thankfully I had my aunt here to help me when I got frustrated. color I did seemed to break, which started my frustration. Then the frosting wasn’t spreading like she had done. Again, I am still a beginner baker and am still learning, haha. Next time I will do something a little more simple.

What have you made recently? What has made you frustrated recently? Just keep pressing on and you can get through it. The cake is only as hard to make as you let it be….and if you attempt something well about what you are capable of doing. Try going for the smaller one first 🙂

I have to get ready for the “party” see y’all on Friday!

The green, blue, and purple ones were cooling on plates...half of each of them stuck to the pans (even though I had sprayed the pans)...
