A little bit of this, a little bit of that!

Turns out when I missed school last Monday... the people that turned up for a half day were told to go home because the teacher was in a meeting and the other teacher was like "...yeah, I don't have anything to teach you". So, I didn't miss out on anything!

Which totally means that me playing hooky yet again on a Monday isn't so bad because it's like I only missed one day instead of two. Right??? Right?!?!?!?!

I was actually pretty productive today. I could almost pat myself on the back. We started a new class last week about radiography. All I know about it is 'x-rays' (and that's not even the right name for them!) and we got told we've got an assignment due in two weeks. Which is now next week. I finally had a look at it today and it's pretty easy. Just got to read a 104 PAGE GOVERNMENT DOCUMENT to get my answers. Oh dear! But it's nearly finished. Phew! Thank goodness I am a good skim reader :)

But I was much more productive yesterday when I made soup!! With dumplings!!! Yesterday I didn't even know what dumplings were but I made them nonetheless. I was so proud of myself, I am now a person who makes soup (that one time). It was an Irish Chicken Stew with Dumplings and the recipe can be found here further down the page. It was quite easy to tweak it and add stuff and take stuff out.
Also, a little callback to a blog post I did last week. Remember how I was obsessed with the Maroon 5 song 'Moves Like Jagger'? And I was hoping that if someone else got the song stuck in their head, it would get out of mine? Well, it worked... sort of. The person whose head the song got stuck in was my girl roomie!! She was walking around the house singing it ALL WEEKEND!! Haha, serves me right for making her watch the music video in the first place!

That soup looks amazingly delicious. I think I need to visit you sometime and have you make me that soup. It might just complete my life.

I can't believe you've never heard of dumplings before!! They are so delicious with homemade chicken soup. Yours looks pretty tasty! And kudos to you for making them without knowing what they were.

There's nothing like knowing you skipped a unproductive day at school. :)
