My life is now complete.

See it and believe it.

Yes, it's true. I made boba, at home, from scratch (more or less). Not just any boba, but boba with Thai iced tea and soy milk. I am happy to report, it was, in fact, the best boba I have ever had in my entire life. (and I know my boba, believe you me). This beverage could not have been made without the generous gift of dried tapioca, "black tea dust number one brand" and a magical cloth strainer from Nok's amazing parents.


So, there's the answer to those of you who've been wondering. . . "Geeeeez, Melissa! Two whole weeks off of work! What have you been doing with all your free time???"


Making boba.


Other things I have been doing with my free time include:
Going to the gym.
Sitting and catching up with friends over $6 cups of coffee.
Crafts.
Listening to radio shows on the internet.
Reading.
Buying new music.
Drinking as many hot beverages as my bladder can take.
Sleeping.
Cleaning things.
NOT replying to emails.
NOT making new lesson plans.
NOT studying Japanese.
NOT updating my blog.
NOT traveling.
NOT filling out thank you cards.


You win some, you loose some. But all in all it's been pretty much awesome.

(Oh, and I AM sorry about the not replying to emails/ not filling out thank you cards bit. Those actions do not reflect a lack of appreciation, nor the absence of a desire to keep in touch.
It just means I'm behaving like a lazy person, and most likely out and about paying too much to do too little.)

i used to make boba at the coffe shop that i worked at in fullerton. sometimes, i would get really bored, and sell half boiled boba to kidsm who didn't know any better for double the normal price. i would also give customers half-and-half lattes when they asked for non fat milk. also double espresso shots for the decaf askers. who says minimum wage jobs have no perks?

your life sounds fun.
