A Fantastic Post Everyday!

Just the best blog on WordPress.com

Slowly making my way into the coffee world.

I’ve never thought of myself as someone with many pet peeves. I was wrong. Today I had myself a mocha chip milkshake (I know, slowly making my way into the coffee world) and decided that fake coffee was indeed delicious! Must I remind you how hot it was today and how refreshing a nice, cold, beverage is? I quickly gulped down the remainder of my milkshake when I discovered something at the bottom. OH MY GOD. chocolate chips!!!! I had been wondering where the “chip” part of the “mocha chip milkshake” was, and now I have found it. But this got me wondering: why did it take this long to discover the chocolate chips? Why was this necessary? And the answer is: it’s not necessary, this is an outrage! As I start sucking on my straw a little more, I realize, these are not chocolate chips- these are chocolate CHUNKS! I know, crazy. So basically, I was disappointed that my straw was not big enough to suck up the chunks and the shake was not thick enough so they all sunk to the bottom anyways.

But here’s the pet peeve: Since I’m always at the library (where I am right now…) and since I have been drinking this shake in the library, you can imagine how quiet it is. I hate it when I get to the bottom and there’s still a substantial amount of shake left and I try to suck it through the straw, but it makes a loud sound and it’s so embarrassing! Ok, well here you have it, maybe you can offer a way to avoid this but still get every drop of delicious mocha chip shake (including the CHUNKS) left.

So clearly it’s taken me a few days to post this. Are you wondering why? I’ll tell you. Ok, I’ve been busy, with a life! I’m glad I got that out of the way and I am going to eagerly transition to the purpose of this post: interesting videos! Look at me, conquering the list from last post already. I am the BEST.

Story of my life

 

Here is what I etched into my notebook today (as I was out and about, unlike yesterday)

To Do List:

2nd draft of essay (which by the way will most likely be about this article: www.jstor.org/stable/3202503

French Homework (this is due tomorrow, and I haven’t started it. ahhh!)

piano (this should be on my list every week. I never practice even though I should if I want to be a master pianist!)

Now I am going to have my own blog to do list:

Posts I’m going to write

The art of blogging- the struggles I had (and still have) when starting a new blog

Top ten favorite songs/musical artists/etc… as I am a musician and artist myself!

In addition, I hope sooner or later to conduct an experiment (sort of). Ideally, I would ask a bunch of kids to draw a picture of God, in response to this video: http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/ken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity.html

And generally, interesting articles, videos, etc…

so much to do, but at least I have some ideas/ direction! Unfortunately I can only post one thing a day (and so far I have been quite diligent!) So do check back everyday (probably every night/ afternoon) and hopefully you will enjoy my future posts.

Recounting my restaurant experiences

Hello. Good to see you today. This is my third post and I have been slacking. sort of. Allow me to explain. Today I sat at home wasting time and watching War and Peace based off of a large, Russian novel and starring the beautiful Audrey Hepburn. Thus, as you may have already concluded, I did not write in my notebook. Things like this happens, and will happen in the future. Here’s how I will compensate.

Last night I dined with my friends at California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) which is a nice restaurant. Blatantly, it is just ok. But here’s what I compiled from that restaurant about what my restaurant pet-peeves. Herewegoooooo:

1.) Bread and Butter Temperature: We’ve all encountered this one. Firstly, the bread MUST be warm, or at least room temperature. Secondly, the butter must be room temperature, which it seldom is, and not hard or god forbid, embedded with ice particles. Otherwise, you can’t spread the butter evenly onto the bread and sometimes you get an awkward clump that digs into the bread and seriously ruins your appetite.

2.) Paper Coasters: Don’t get me started, just… ugh. Paper coasters are the worst. Let me tell you why! Let’s pretend, hypothetically, you order a glass of water. The glass of water (with a lovely lemon wedge!) arrives and you enthusiastically make way it. The waiter kindly lays down a coaster in front of you. No problem right? But here’s where the horror happens. She places the water on top of the coaster, and the condensation drips and STICKS to the paper coaster, leaving you with a mini accordian when you go and pick up your cup (if that coaster happens to be a folded napkin in square form). What an awkward and annoying situation this would be during a date! Please restaurant owners and managers reading this: DITCH THE PAPER COASTERS! and buy decent plastic ones.

3.) Paper Straw Wrappers: These babies will keep your straws nice and sanitized, but imagine what would happen if you left them in the hands of hungry, bored customers? Absolute terror! First we would roll them up, the shred them, then play magic tricks with them, then use them as fake snow and guess where all those little pieces of straw wrappers go? On the floor, for the next customer to walk on, especially if the floor is carpeted. Advice to restaurant people: take those wrappers away immediately after your customers are done with them!

4.) THE DILEMA: Here’s a problem I always need to deal with. I almost finished with my plate of pasta (I can finish an entire supersized plate of pasta) but there’s a decent amount left. Do I a.) finish it, because I’m not completely satisfied or b.) take it home because if I eat more and can’t finish it, there’s no point in boxing it. The answer is up to you!

Can you trust Public Library users?

I am in a library. I just logged into this computer (with my own username and password, how cool am I?) and logged onto gmail, checked email(s), logged onto facebook, checked messages (I have friends), and logged onto this baby, and decided impetuously that I needed then and there to go to the bathroom. I didn’t want to spoil my hard work of opening so many tabs, and I didn’t have time to log out of everything, so I decided, reluctantly, to keep everything open for the public to see and possibly hack into. In addition, I left my purse- brown faux leather, sturdy structure, magnetic opening, free with purchase- completely open on the ground. I know what you’re thinking, and believe me, I am thinking it too.

So I return from my trip and frantically flip through my belongings, grasping my cellphone from the bottom of the bag, sorting through my keys and hearing that satisfying clink! sound, and flipping through the tabs to make sure my password wasn’t mysteriously changed or screwed up. My trip away from the computer was an success! Perhaps people are more respectful than we could have imagined!

Anyways, today I have written a few things in my notebook. I find that I am having a love-hate relationship with this stack of paper. Although I am enamoured with the big spiral binding, which ideally should allow the user to flip from one page to the next with ease, it seems to get caught and I can’t close the book properly with the cover lying flat across the top. As much as I am irritated, I must persist, and this is what I have written in it today:

closing paragraph

future research- what will happen next (history)

want research in closing

” currently” instead of “today”

@_______________$

$________________*

*________________!

no pronouns, make title page, may leave pronoun in thesis statement, also this these that is not allowed.

Last # on top right–> don’t forget!

I continue on with my chicken scratch- not only is all of this illegible, but even when legible, makes absolutely no sense! Allow me to explain. I just got out of my college writing class and forgot my big notebook where I keep my usual notes. So, as you may have guessed already, I destroyed this notebook with scribbles and weird symbols and the usual. Today we discussed closings for history papers, which apparently must connect to the present or future research (which I was not aware of, perhaps you can put some input into this?) Now I have to cram this paper in tonight or tomorrow as I should also be working on my French homework (you will soon discover that I love writing in French… heh heh). Until next time!

Yellow and Orange

7/11! I have always found that number combination entertaining because there is an entire franchise named after it (seven eleven, if you haven’t guessed)! I have already written some things into my notebook. The first day is always the most exciting, isn’t it? The fresh, unexplored possibilities, the clean, paper aroma-ed pages, and the smooth, smooth texture. I always enjoy opening a fresh new notebook. I love the experience. But seldom do I get the satisfaction of filling a notebook entirely up front and back with information, drawings, and important things. Someday, someday. This baby has 200 sheets. 200 x 2 = 400! That a little over a year. I suppose I should start a count down! Here is my first entry:

Which car battery does connecting cables damage?

Spurn= reject

ascetic= someone who practices self-denial

stipend= salary

inept= incompetent

inert= inactive

my favorite color is orange

                      but I like yellow too.

Viola! One page filled with useful and useless information! I hope I haven’t taken away the romaticism of this pursuit, but if I have, I apologize. I promise future posts will be more interesting. I just need to get into the flow, if you know what I mean, and first times are always a little awkward (that’s what she said).

Until next time!

Firstly, I apologize for the somewhat inappropriate language. I can only hope my future employers and professors don’t discover this blog. I tried everything from thedaybook.wordpress.com, daybook.wordpress.com, theeverydaybook.wordpress.com and what wordpress offered me was to buy my own domain. I thought, no thank you, and decided upon this beast, theeveryfreakingdaybook.wordpress.com, to express my frustration (and my immaturity)

Now, on with the show. You’re wondering, why should I be reading this blog, out of all the blogs this world has to offer? What is special about theeveryfreakingdaybook.wordpress.com? I can only offer one answer: the format. Although I have not read enough blogs to verify that my concept is completely unique (and mostly likely is not) but I can say for sure that you will thoroughly enjoy my perspective and often fresh posts (in both meanings of the word).

You see, I now keep a small spiral notebook with me everywhere I go. The cover is a decent hunter green plastic with the name “Staples” printed on the top half and the notebook fits nicely in the palm of my hand. This whole note taking business is entirely new to me- I have tried before and have failed- because for god’s sake, I’m an artist who does NOT appreciate organization (but this is soon to change, hopefully). You can say I want to take on a new perspective in life- and you are right, in more aspects than one. And so, I present my lovely blog, theeveryfreakingdaybook.wordpress.com. Will it take off? It’s up to you, so please do subscribe and check back for seriously entertaining (and genuine!) blog posts.
