If I were to talk about what I have been up to lately, it would defeat the purpose of this blog. Things have been getting stressful specially when our teachers make sure to remind us everyday how much important this year this in making our career etc etc. There is just too much work and never time enough. I would lie there procrastinating and not actually accomplishing much. I have exams this month and the next month too :( Infact, I didn’t bake for what seemed like ages. There were times I would want to do it but then I’ll calculate how much time would be wasted and bla bla.
There has been a change in my life. I for once stopped hiding everything. Things I won’t talk about here because it’s not worth it and not safe either. I literally have no idea where my life is going to head to from now but I haven’t felt this relieved in months. I didn’t notice that I had stopped asking questions in class. But lately I regained that lost confidence.
Believe me, this blog is a great blessing for me. Whenever I want to make my opinion heard, I can write here. Infact I have taken to reading my own blog posts that I wrote awhile back. On my bad days I would come home and there would be your comments waiting to make my day. (Sorry that I am late at replying to them. Just the same, life gets busy but I do read them & cherish them.)
Ahh how much I loved these brownies. There must be a million variations of ‘the brownies’. I have tried fudgy brownies too but I prefer cakey and chewy. They are more like the brownies you would picture your grandma making (not that my grandma ever baked!) This recipe was perfect and is going to be my favorite brownie recipe from now on. Yess they’re that good!
