After work I headed off the a local coffee shop to meet someone. I think we had a great conversation and I definitely learned quite a bit. I decided to stay afterwards just to write some and read some. Mostly the latter. Yesterday, I started reading ‘The 4 Hour Work Week’ and I have not been able to put it down. It teaches you a lot of things: be effective rather than efficient; have lots of mini-retirements instead of one retirement; how to make more money with less time; and so on. Go read it. It will change the way you see things and do things.
This summer, I’ve learned that I love to bake and cook! Perhaps it runs in the family but it’s a fun way to pass the time and I love the sense of accomplishment I get when I put on those oven mits and pull out my latest creation. This time, it was Chocolate Crinkle Chocolates: A favorite childhood dessert that I haven’t had in ages! Don’t they look tasty?
I finally got my schedule today!!! In a few days I will officially be starting 11th grade and have to endure IB :S There were highs and lows to my schedule though. I have some pretty awesome teachers, but also a couple who I know aren’t exactly the greatest at teaching. Oh well, c’est la vie.
