*blows the dust off*

Guess what? I'M STILL ALIVE! :D I came across this beautiful quote and thought this community would be the best to share it with:

"This is our goal as writers, I think; to help others have this sense of--please forgive me--wonder, of seeing things anew, things that can catch us off guard, that break in on our small, bordered worlds. When this happens, everything feels more spacious. Try walking around with a child who's going, "Wow, wow! Look at that dirty dog! Look at that burned-down house! Look at that red sky!" And the child points and you look, and you see, and you start going, "Wow! Look at that huge crazy hedge! Look at that teeny little baby! Look at the scary dark cloud!" I think this is how we are supposed to be in the world--present and in awe."
- the lovely Anne Lamott

In other news, I am overloading this semester and have caught an addiction with baking (:P), but I have no plans of cutting ties with you simmers mmkay. My deepest apologies for being such a ghost all the while. :(

Re: From one quote to another (icon)
Hehe, yea.

When I got really crazy, I baked probably 4 times a week. :X I don't know, I just had so many things to try out! I just want to keep experimenting! (Too bad they require stomach spaces though. :P)

Oh, you go brew up your own world first. I know they are/will be so much dearer to you. ^^ (hahaha, emotional chapters are always so hard to pull!)

Dear Ning :) That's a lovely quote! It reminds me of how I always go ooh! and aah! at pretty things and need to share them with other people, who aren't always very interested (sadly).

Good to hear from you! I hope everything is fine with you and you are starting the new semester with fresh interest :) My year also just started and it's promising to be really busy -- but super interesting! I hope we'll still see you around to talk to? What kinds of things have you been baking? :D

NIMI! Haven't heard from you in a while huh. ^^ (And LOL! I know how that feels! XD)

Haha, sounds like you're having loads of fun at school. :D I hope to be hanging around too, though I might have tied myself up with too many commitments... *sigh* Really don't want to disappear from you guys just like that. :(

I have mostly been experimenting with muffins, actually. Trying to come up with my own proportions have been rather tough. (The muffins were tough too. :P)

FYI

This is my LJ for personal stuff. Friend this if you are, well, a friend of mine. :D

However, since this is a community and can't be used to friend other LJs, I'll be friending you back with collidingwithme. Complicated, eh? :P
