Making something outside of my comfort zone.

This week I am broke as hell. Pft, who am I kidding? I’m always broke. But it’s my night to cook dinner, and I know Jared is totally over spag bol. So I headed over to the /r/Eatcheapandhealthy to try and find something a bit out of my comfort zone cooking wise but was also cheap. I saw this recipe and at first thought it was expensive as hell (In NZ, anyway) then I decided to modify it a bit to suit my budget. I know a lot of the original ingredients I should probably have in my cupboard, but I didn’t. So I skipped the “cornflour” part because I never use cornflour.

Just Do It

JUST DO IT, JANA! OPEN WORD AND FINISH YOUR ASSIGNMENTS! JUST DO IT!

I need to take his advice. But here I am, posting this video just in case you guys haven’t seen it. And updating again on my life. Because that’s what this blog is for, dur!

I need to work on two assignments.

Argh.

Anyway. Moving on.

Last week I had an interview with the Dept. of Corrections, to my surprise they have a team that works with the RMA, doing compliance for the prisons and other buildings / properties they own.  When I got the email and then the phone call, I posted right away to Facebook. I’m the type of person that over-shares. OK? 😛

Internships, jobs, what is my life?

This post is nothing specific, just an update on my life at the moment, I guess. I just want to note that I don’t post on exact days or a certain amount of times a week (Or even consecutively in a week) because I don’t feel like forcing myself to blog. My life isn’t too interesting. I post mainly to get out my feelings. I think I’ve said this a million times before, haha!

Anyway, recently I went to a weekend for Maori Students Associations. I unfortunately got called away on the Friday night due to a family issue that after I heard about, I didn’t really feel like being around people I didn’t know. It didn’t even turn out to be a major thing. Anyway, the weekend (well, the Thursday / Friday I was there) it was good. I meet some cool people, got over my fear of meeting people (I hope, I guess we’ll see what happens the next time I have to introduce myself!) I didn’t make any “connections” or whatever, but that’s probably because I left early.

Just an update #2

This post is nothing special, it’s just an update on my life, I suppose. 🙂

Firstly I just want to say hey to all my new readers! I love having people comment on my blog – not for vain reason haha, but so I can check their blogs out too! I’m reading a bunch of new blogs right now. It’s awesome getting to know people, especially ones in other countries! I love blog hopping, also, (you know, like reading their blogs, then going through their comments and reading their… readers blogs hah). It gives me something to do when I should be studying.  If you don’t want to leave a comment, you can tweet me your URL and I’ll check your blog! I love reading them!

Home made face scrub #1

For awhile now I’ve been looking for a face scrub at the local supermarket or an online store that ships to NZ. Unfortunately, everything is over-priced or it’s a “daily” cleanser. I don’t really want to scrub my face daily, and I wanted something a little more rougher then a daily scrub, anyway. I don’t have sensitive skin so I thought a nice rough scrub once or twice a week wouldn’t do any harm. I feel like my face needs a scrub every now and then!

After complaining to a friend, she suggested I make my own. I watched a few Youtube videos and kind of forgot about it, to be honest. I didn’t have runny honey, so it just sat at the back on my mind for awhile until I finally remembered to ask Jared to fetch some from the store for me.
