Day One: Acceptance

My best friend started blogging to mark the days of her "reformation." We've both come to realize that we've been sitting around doing nothing with ourselves because we've constantly been in search of something better. We watch other people live and envy them, living through books and movies, and as each bit of brain crack comes to an end, we realize that we're pathetic and pick up another book or movie to fall into.

The End.

More or less the beginning. My own reformation needs to take place. And I don't care if anyone ever reads this. 
I'm doing it for me.

So Day One. I've accepted the fact that I need to change. Honestly, that isn't much of anything as I accepted this as I was lying in bed pitying myself.
Therefore, I baked a cake.
Best chocolate cake ever.
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 eggs
3/4 cups cocoa
1 cup veggie oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water

I now feel chill and accomplished. Not to mention, I just had a big piece of chocolate cake.
Who's the winner here? I think that'd be me.

Today, chocolate cake. Tomorrow, the world
Well, maybe I'll try running.
But THEN. Oh, THEN it will be the world at my feet (;
