Something peculiar occurred on Sunday. I was about to go water the plants in my patio, when I noticed something moving. At first, I thought it was a centipede and since I'm no fan of insects/bugs, I immediately went inside to tell my mother. But I was wrong, it turns out it was a caterpillar. Brown, fluffy, desperately examining its surroundings. It knew it wasn't in it's regular habitat. After  I watered the plants, it came near the small puddle of water. Apparently, it was thirsty. In order to make his life easier, I placed some leafs near it, perhaps it would want to eat as well. We saw no point in killing it, what harm could it possibly do? Now here comes the question: how did it end up in my patio? We have no grass whatsoever, just some plants in pots. Whatever the reason may be, I just know that looking after the little fella made our day better. Hopefully it will grow and become a butterfly -or a moth. It deserves to fly freely.

To be honest, I've never been interested in cooking, baking or being in the kitchen in general. However, I think it's time I start learning. I can't be buying take out food all the time or be depending on my mother since she doesn't have time to cook everyday. I'm taking small steps here because this is unexplored territory for me. Now, since it was the first time I ever baked something all by myself, I decided to take a short cut and ended up buying the box with the premix. I prepared a total of 12 cupcakes, although they looked more like muffins. After doing some research, I came to the conclusion that I over-mixed it. They didn't turn out as expected, but being the first time, we all make mistakes. I'll just have to keep this in mind for next time. They were edible and tasted good, so that's what counts, right?
