Summer School Homework Week 2

Heyy Everyone,
So its week 2 of Mary's summer school. You can check it out here. The post was very thought provoking and was very well done. I really enjoyed it. She gave out homework once again.
The first item of homework was to eat something different for breakfast. As a rule I love breakfast, it is my favourite meal of the day and I can't function without it. I pretty much always eat plain Cheerios with chocolate milk. Which when I tell people this they go "eww gross" but seriously its really really good. Anyway, I have been told that Yogurt with cereal is really good, but I haven't tried it. So I took this as an opportunity too. It was pretty good. I don't have a picture but I found these online:

My room wasn't extremely messy, as my mom makes me clean it. Haha. But my closet was in need of a cleaning so I cleaned that out, and got rid of a bunch of purses that I no longer use, along with a few tops that are too small.

I decided to cover this bangle:

I never really liked it, it was always an ugly faded yellow colour. So after looking in magazines for some inspiration. I found some ribbon covered bangles in an old Elle Girl. So I decided to cover this bangle in ribbon. This is how it turned out:

I think it is a major improvement from the yellow. Now I want to buy some more cheap bangles to cover, in different colour ribbon. Tissue paper might also be nice. I shall have to try it.

I am going to try to give up swearing. Lately it seems I have been swearing more, and honestly there really is no reason too. I know that it takes about 21 days to make a habbit, but I'm not sure how long it takes to break one. I think it might be about 30 days but it just depends. So it is somthing that I am going to have to work on.

Next I researched hydrogenated oils, and the first website I came across called them Silent Killers, so that was very reassuring. Haha.
Hydrogenated Oils form Trans fatty acids which the body does not know how to break down. Which can cause the body to produce abnormal or deformed cells. Crisco, often used in baking, is basically a lump of hydrogenated oil. Yummy. I'm not sure if I answered the question that was asked, but basically it's a lot of scienctificness, on the websites. The main point is that they are bad for you, can cause cancer and other diseases.

Here are 7 Random facts about me:
1)My favourite subjects in school are science and math. Most people hated going to science class but I loved it. Math was a different story, I hated my teacher.
2) I love bright orange nail polish, and have 4 or 5 different nail polishes that are just slightly different in colour.
3) I watch endless hours of the food network, hoping that one day I will be able to cook like that.
4)I find something very satisfying about eating junk food while watching The biggest loser, X weighted or some other weight loss show.
5) I hate pop, coffee, ice tea, and lemonade. Ya I'm very picky when it comes to beverages.
6) I am allergic to perfume.
7) I wear glasses.
It's hard to think up random facts about yourself when you try. Anyway, I hope everyone has a good week, and I should be back sometime this weekend with another post.


  1. oo this mary's summer school thing is kinda awesome!

    i swear way more than i used to, i think it's because my parents have stopped flinching as much when something slips and my friends swear too so it just builds up as a nasty old habit. what's getting really bad is often when i super mad a really vulgar swearword/swear phrase will come out and usually this always happens when i'm super irked at my mother, not good haha. it's funny i have a really nice well-mannered friend who after coming back from college for the summer was having a conversation with me and a few friends and all of the sudden an f-word just pops out and she was like, "omg! college is just a totally different environment" haha.

    i actually hate math and science, and suck at them too haha, but good for you :)

  2. Yay, my favorite subjects are math and science too. And i hate lemonade and stuff too!

    Oh, and I'm so so so so trying chocolate milk + cheerios tomorrow! I love what you did about hydrogenated oils, too, because to be honest I really didn't know much about them! Haha, blush!
