I read, write, code, and knit.

My dad was out of town on business for Monday and Tuesday night, which left me in charge of the household and my brother. :o In this situation, I had to do certain chores I've never done before--such as make supper from scratch!

That's right. Although I've helped out in the kitchen before, I've never cooked dinner from scratch without supervision before. I made diced chicken with pasta. I didn't remember how to make a basil pesto sauce for the pasta, unfortunately; however, I added basil, curry, and soy sauce to the chicken, which spread to the pasta. But wait, there's more! I also did laundry.

I guess since I'm 18 I should be learning this stuff--or I should already know it. I've been lucky to have parents who have let me sustain such a sheltered existence. :D It's not that I don't like cooking--I enjoyed the experience--but I just haven't had the time to cook often enough to get better at it. Hopefully that will change, although there's a certain laziness factor to overcome first. . . .

In other news, I've got a super cool new chair. Now if only I could get up from it!
