Well, semester one of the DMIT program is almost over. 1/4 done. It seems crazy. The semester has gone very well. My grades are better than they’ve ever been and I am starting to see my future. I don’t know exactly what it will include, but using the skills that I’m learning now will DEFINITELY be part of it. I’ve learned that if I just do things, and don’t try to do things, I am much more successful. Even if things are hard, I just have to get over it and do it.
Speaking of just DOING things, I decided to make a cake tonight… Only I had no milk. So I looked up a recipe for a Vanilla cake with no milk. I briefly read the ingredients and got started. As I started throwing ingredients in the bowl, I realized that not only did it not have milk, it didn’t have eggs. Weirds. On top of that, it required 3/4 of oil. The only oil we currently have is olive oil. Yuck. So, I bravely substituted the oil for 1/4 cup of melted butter. Fingers crossed. Oh, did I mention that my vanilla cake recipe called for 5 tbsp of cocoa? Haha. Stay tuned for pictures.
Anyway, moral of the story, when challenges are staring you in the face, just puff up your chest and bowl them over on your way by! It’s all good. Just enjoy what you have. Stumbling blocks are just that… stumbling blocks. Get up and keep on going. Stumble on them enough and you’ll smooth them out. 🙂
