Pressing Onward

For one of my classes this semester I am required to have a blog.  I also had to purchase a domain name and web hosting services too.  My new blog is on WordPress and since I use that quite a bit for class so I decided to move my old posts from Blogger over there.  Come see the new look!

Wrapping up Resolutions

Well since it is already February I figured I should finish up my final post on my third goal for the not-so-new-anymore year.  So far, I feel pretty good about how I've done working towards this goal during the month of January.  So without further ado, goal number three: pray more often.

I don't discuss it too often with other people, but my faith is one of the most important things in my life.  Faith, to me, is a relationship with God that is always changing and developing.  This year I want to strengthen my faith with a more consistent prayer life.  For some, prayer involves getting down on your knees and reciting prayers like the Our Father or Hail Mary.  I've realized that I prefer writing down my own prayers or listening to uplifting music on my iPod and really reflecting on the lyrics and their meaning. 

This post will be short because like I said, I don't discuss my faith too much with others.  Part of this is because I really don't like when people try and push religion on others so I don't want to do that myself.  Part of it is also because I am still working on getting to a place where discussing my faith feels completely comfortable.  Maybe I should pray about that. : )

Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these cookies last week and they were pretty good.  And by pretty good, I really mean that they were delicious and I wish I had some right now.  If you are looking for a true crispy cookie, try making a batch of these.  The recipe doesn't make too many so you won't have to worry about having dozens of cookies to get rid of...although that's really never a problem in this apartment. : )

Just follow this recipe!

I took these photos for one of the Daily Creates last week.  The assignment was to take a photo of a finished product and at least one of its raw materials.

 It's like the ying and yang of baked goods!

The recipe only calls for half of a 12oz bag of chocolate chips (mental math - how many ounces would that be?).  When my darling suitemate asked if she could have some of the leftover chocolate chips I responded with a snappy, "NO!".  Not very polite on my part, but it's for her own good - now I can bake another batch!
