About to Senior Spring

I'm assuming that starting school before Labor Day and finishing finals before Winter Break was supposed to make Winter Break, well, longer. I'm sure it did, but it doesn't feel that way at all--I still remember my Chemistry 160 final quite vividly, as well as much of break itself. Such is life, I suppose.

Choosing my last set of classes (!) means that I will no longer be able to continue with my newfound and currently short-lived fascination with Cookpad, at least until Spring Break, during which I might be too busy anyway. Since my Bûche de Noël and 海老餃子 attempts:

Apple-Yogurt Cake, which tastes like cheesecake if you do it right, minus the fat. I'm not sure if the flash makes it look better or worse.

Avocado Dip. Almost like guacamole, but not quite (although just as good, if not better). Ridiculously easy to make.

オレンジゼリー, made with Cara Cara oranges from Costco (some of the best oranges I've ever had). Proof that price doesn't always = quality.

生春巻き using regular spring roll skins! Brilliant.

I wish my classes could be written up as neatly as this. But alas, I have no idea what I want or need to take. I thought I did, a few days ago, but now all I have are vague categories: physical chemistry, sociology (pending petition), elective. Thankfully I know that I am definitely (95%) taking Evolutionary Biology and the lab-research class, but the rest is completely up in the air. Ugh... Happy Shopping!
