Cooking & Potter
August 19, 2009

My latest snag from B&N:

The first choice because I’ve been hearing that the movies don’t do the books justice and that a lot of details are changed. If I can read the Twilight Saga I’m sure I can get through this set.

Second choice because well I don’t know how to cook. It’s a cookbook right? And yes I did watch the movie but honestly, I don’t know how to cook. I’m a very follow the rules type of person so if I follow a recipe and it doesn’t come out the way it’s suppose to, I blame the recipe. Haha.

Initially I wasn’t going to purchase the Julia Child book because I don’t do well with ones that don’t have colorful illustrations. But in the beginning of the book she gives all the detailed instructions you need in accomplishing a lot of basic cooking skills. So that’s what I read on my lunch break. How Julia Child began her career… well.. basically. Hopefully by the end of it I’ll be able to cook. Although I don’t eat red meat I’m starting to consider it as a tribute to this new experience I’m taking on.

B&N
August 13, 2009

My home away from home…  there’s something about walking through isles of endless books, from romance to non-fiction to self-improvment.  How organized and perfectly arranged they are on the shelves. And their smell……..  *sigh*  It feels so good to just walk around my B&N and just look at the different covers and stories.  I think of them as little adventures.  You can browse them for light summer reading or if you like anything similar to me I read the Twilight Saga on my lunch breaks.  Haha.  I do own them it’s just that I leave them at home, safe and sound.

So I’ll wonder in and out each category.  My favorite time to visit B&N is right after the lunchtime rush.  When the stores AND streets are mostly empty or right when they open on Mondays, my usual day off. 

There’s so much to adventure about in this wonderful store.  I could stay there for hours on end just reading.  I may not finish a book within the duration of my stay but I can have different adventures if I so choose.  That’s what I want–adventure.

Hopefully that’s what I can bring out of my 8 year hiatus from creative writing. All I’ve known for years is science, science, science. Now that I think I know everything there is to BASICALLY know about science I want to venture thoroughly into the world and find out how I can apply it to helping others.

It’ll be difficult work but I guess that’s what’ll push me in the right direction towards that adventure I’ve been wanting. =D
