I am moving out of my old apartment into new apartment at a nearby complex, Tuscanny Village X3.

First, lemme get this out before I bust.... MY MOM IS CANCER FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its hard to explain how much relief I felt when she called me with the news. A little switch kicked in my head and said "My mom is going to be ok. I can go back to feeling like she'll be all right and she will always be there for me when I need my mommy. I guess that sounds stupid and childish but I want to feel like that right now.

Other updates include me moving into a new apartment. The move is scheduled for next month, on the 15th. I'll be taking that day off from work and just moving my stuff in and pulling an allnighter to unpack all my stuff. I'll be joined in the 2/1 with Donald Slauson and Jaya Prasad, soon to be Slauson.

I might also be recieving a raise soon, hopefully of a significant amount.

Been a year since I posted last I guess. Long year to be honest. Promoted at work, to shift manager. Lived alone for the entire year, and I think I am going a little mad. Kittens joined the house, Bones is getting onto his third year, Riley SHOULD be rehomed soon. Hopefully. Adama was neutered, due to a cage fight. All the rats are in seperate cages now, due to more fights. I won't get more rats after these guys are gone.

Mom still has cancer and she did go to chemo. She's lost her hair but doesn't let it bother her. I keep getting kind of scared sometimes, with moments of panic when it sets in that this is my mother, who I was so much closer to than my dad, and it scares me that she could die. Then I have to tell myself to stop thinking that. I was told, on Christmas day, that the cancer had spread to the lymph nodes and she'll have another year of chemo and several more surgeries to come. I can't wait for this to be over. It never leaves my mind, always hovering in the back of my thoughts.

On a lighter note, the promotion and slight raised did help quite a lot.

Its almost 3 am... I guess I just needed to vent for a minute about stupid things.

Still alive and kicking here, just never acquired a taste for the journal thing. Guess I'll fill in some small things that have happened.

Ok, biggest thing to make known is my mother has been diagnosed with Breast Cancer, in both breasts. She is being scheduled for a bilateral mastectomy, which means both breast are going to be removed, mammory and muscle. She's going for a PET scan to see if it has spread to any other parts of her body.She's also decided against chemo. But she's also really upbeat. So I have no right to be upset either.

I am now without a roommate again. I am going to stay that way if I can until my lease is up. I have several options where I might move too, but the most likely one right now is another complex real nearby.

Riley, the dog, is demented and adorable at the same time. The rats, Amand, Bones, and Adama, are sniffy and adorable as ever. And my Star Trek DVD is missing. I cry. ;_;

Also, The Losers. Totally awesome.

Made sweet and sour chicken with grilled pineapple rings on the side.

I got a bottle of sweet and sour sauce from Wal-Mart, along with the other random ingredients (chicken, stir fry mix, bamboo). Tasted the sauce and decided I had purchased ketchup and brown sugar in a bottle. Got inventive enough to dump in pinapple juice, broth from chicken noodle soup, and some soy sauce. Came out good! Coated the pineapple rings in cinnamon and brown sugar and grilled them on my Jenn-Aire grill.


Riley is licking my feet and worming his way under my chair, so I shall take that as a hint to entertain my dog now.

I know, boring crap. But eh, I don't want to use this as an actual journal, so I won't.

So recently I was requested by my dad to make cheesecake for his christmas present. I haven't made this is YEARS. So i crack out the old recipe tin.... and its not there. Frantically, I search the wide interwebs for a good recipe site. I can remember the ingrediants... But the amounts failed me. Found a good site and went at it. But with my own twist.

Presenting Upside down cheesecake!

Same night, I also made butter and whipped cream via magic bullet. >.>
Next day, totally made chocolate whipped cream. This is fun.

Later, pics of my next experiment. Shall be delicious.

Hey all....
Yeah, me posting a journal, GASP. I'm so lame. Well, you be mistaken. Its actually a question!

I'm suffering a major college burnout this semester. I've been going full tilt for three years now, with no less than 16 credit hours a semester each semester. Along side being a full time employee and TRYING lately to be social, gasp again. I  know the social thing isnt important, but it's calming me down. Should I take a semester off? Or even just take a single elective course for fun?

Mizuki says yes. My practical side says yes, mainly because I am so tired and stressed by all this crap.

What do you think?
