nerf in the library + another baking fail || SPOILER: 8 DAYS OF NANO LEFT

Saturday, April 22, 2017

last week, Julia and I went to the library for an after hours teen event they were doing. They had another capture the flag nerf event. last time, when it was just nerf it was awesome, but adding capture the flag?
there's nothing better than running and screaming in the library, dodging through isles and shooting other teens with nerf, I kid you not. It just can't get better. (and btw my team won both times HA *laughs at ju*)

but onward, it's been busy but I can't seem to remember what I've been busy with. i'm the type of person that can't even remember what i did yesterday. xP *silently tries to remember what I did yesterday*
ANNNYYWAYYYSS. the leaves are sprouting - LIKE GUYS SUMMER IS COMING OKAY I CAN FINALLY SAY IT. once it's green I will be so happy

so my novel is currently riding at...uh. almost 30k? *forgets* i'm sorry guys, lol, I have this cold or something and I just can't think. xP But yes, writing is going relatively well - although I think this novel is going to be a lot shorter than my previous. But it is one MC instead of like four, so. but it's crazy, like, guys...NANO ISN'T MUCH LONGER. *freaks out* NEED. MORE. WORDS.

truffles are amazing, right? the other day I got the idea to make brownie truffles. I found out we didn't have a box brownie like the recipe called for, so I figured homemade would work just fine.

#WRONGWRONGWRONGWRONG

I made them, and I guess I picked the wrong recipe?? so it turned out like a sheet cake. and was like: "WELL. guess i'm makin' cake."

I had found this super awesome chocolate frosting recipe and decided to half it. basically, my brain failed and I halved everything...but added the normal amount of chocolate.
I PROMISE YOU I DO NOT ALWAYS FAIL AT COOKING. IT JUST HAPPENS. TOO OFTEN. AND THEN I BLOG ABOUT IT. CUZ IM A WEIRD HUMAN. HALP.

anyways. I ended up scraping it all out of the bowl, making the rest of the frosting and adding it all in...and yeah. I ended up with an excessively frosted cake brownie thing. #idon'tevenknow

what kind of awesome events does your library do??
do things you make sometimes...uh, turn into other things? xP

      awwww, thaankkkyouuu. yeaah. I know. it's been good tho - but when I'm not writing so much next month blogging will be back in more. I just think it's a stress releaving thing for me to blog less in nano months :D

  3. Hey, it's ok. I've done those kinds of cooking scrapes too. There are some days when I'm lucky that the result is edible.

  4. Nerf war in the library?!? I want to come next time! xD

    I think novels are good examples of things that turn into other things ;) They start out one way, and end up being another.

    btw, your haircut is so cute and omw I love it.

    1. YES THAT WOULD BE AWESOME. Julia and I agreed that if we got all the bloggers together for a nerf battle in the library...well, it just couldn't get better. like omw CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE??

      ha ha. that's so true. although mine is sticking pretty good to the plot this time so *happiness* I hate preparing a whole plot and then scrapping it. xP

      duuuddee you are so sweet omw <333

  5. Haha, I make baking fails like all the time! That is totally something I would do! :p
    AND YES, NEED. MORE. WORDS! I wish that NaNo would just keep going for another month! XD
    Lovely photos! You're so talented, girl! <3

    1. isn't it so frustrating?? some cooking days go well...then when one thing goes wrong I guess I lose focus? xP

      YES. I'm like 10k short of my goal so *happiness* I just reached the midpoint of my novel. This one is going to be a lot shorter than my first I'm thinking...but there is gonna be a sequel. Well, it's really so problem for me...I've learned to set my own goals for other months and keep plowing away at the words until the novel is over..which is my plan. XD

      eeeppp thankkyouuu!! <3

  6. Wow, your library sounds amazing! I wish I could run around my library waving nerf guns. A bookworm's dream...unless someone happens to harm a book, of course. Then it would a tragedy. XD
    Congrats on getting so far into your story, and good luck with writing the rest of it! :D

    1. it is!! you should recommend it to them - although nerf is expensive. xP the library has teens bring their own, then they have a bucket load of them. :D

      IKR?? it's like barefoot all the time now and yess. it just smells like spring, ya know?? *opens all the windows* XD

  9. I volunteer at my library and it's so much fun. We may very well have the best library in the world (although we've never done Nerf Capture the Flag - I should recommend that to the librarians XD)
    I like to cook. I'm decent at it- although there was the one time I didn't know how to oil a pan and I just poured oil into the muffin cups and they overflowed in the oven and almost started a fire :3 It was great.

    1. that sounds so cool!! well if you add nerf capture the flag, trust me, you will have the best library in the world XD totally!! let me know if you do it some time XD

      omw. you almost started a fire?? 'it was great' LOL is it true tho..like something to add to your "I did list" like you can say you almost started a fire baking. hahaha I need to step it up xD

  10. I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU GET TO PLAY NERF CAPTURE THE FLAG IN THE LIBRARY. I mean, nerf guns + capture the flag = I WANT A GO, and then you add the LIBRARY??! (I have to tell my local librarians. I NEED THIS.) (My library's pretty cool, though. Just this month they ran a ComicCon for the region.)

    Totally sympathize with the cooking thing. Once I finished making tea and then discovered half the mince was still sitting in the microwave (how did I manage to do that? I have no idea). And other times... Yeah, I don't enjoy cooking as much as some other people; I get nervous! ;) Buuut... that 'excessively frosted cake brownie thing' - with the frosting ingredients halved except the chocolate - it sounds delicious! (Was it? I mean it wasn't brownie truffles, but was it good anyway?)

    1. YES IT IS THE BEST THING EVER I KID YOU NOT IT IS AMAZINGNESS. AND YES YOU DO NEED THIS. it's so. much. fun. XD

      ohhh. I've done that. like microwave something, and go onto something else to save time...and then you dont add it into the mix. blaaahh.

      haha, well it actually tasted good - although less frosting probably would have been better. ha. but yeah, it was. It just wasn't brownie truffles like i had planned for haha xD #perfectionistproblems

  11. Okay, so, when I was about 13, these cookies turned into a pie.... http://homelifefun.blogspot.com/2011/07/cookies-that-were-not-made.html Hahhahaha!!! It's been a while since I made this, actually... hmmm. I meant to make one for Pi Day, but I didn't check for the ingredients before hand, so that kind of fell through...
