I like to keep track of who's reading my very important words.

My 101 list

Since I started compiling it on July 12, I only have 990 days left according to DayZeroProject. It's all good, though, since I've already started work on some of the ones I came up with first.

101 goals, organized in questionable categories ) 

I'm excited about my list. I do wonder just how much of it is more wishful thinking than actual goals, but at least the charity of my choice will reap benefits from my inability to compile a list of proper projects, haha.

This is what I got done.

Mango mousse.
Well, it's the dead of summer (yes) in my corner of the world, so I decided to finally get around to a mango mousse recipe I'd been meaning to try since before the procedure.  I figured it would be a nice cool dessert and a departure from what I usually make, which my parents have complained is making us all very fat (my answer to that is "It's not my fault you don't exercise and I'm not allowed to yet").  
Besides, a) it was super easy to make, and b) it's mango season and there were like 10 lb of them in the fridge.

It wasn't as cool as I hoped (though, to be fair, nothing is in this weather), but it was pretty good, and the raspberries gave it a nice tangy touch.  It was at least somewhat better than most of the pictures I took of it, heh.

My movie list for 2009

TOTALLY stolen from [livejournal.com profile] legethien. I can't aspire to a hundred, though, because my friends are cheap and don't like going to the movies :(

50 Movies in 2008
Rules and Guidelines:

1. I watch 50 movies or more in 2009.
2. I keep track of how many I watch in this post.
3. I only record count first-time movies. I'm a geek for lists.
4. I mark with an asterisk the movies I would recommend.*
4a. I also mark movies I recommend you skip
5. If you want to recommend any movies to me, go for it.

The list I got around to compiling: January - August )

Ugh, I did a good job while I could, for real. I tried, haha.

Yucataaan pt I

I live in the state of Yucatan (Southeast Mexico), in a city about 200 mi away from Cancun.  Here are some pictures of what I like to show people when they come visit : 

Pictures pictures pictures + text, because what kind of tourist guide would I be otherwise? )

Hope you enjoyed it!

This is it! The final part of my Central America trip last year: Panama.

This little guy welcomes you to this post:

I don't know what it means, but doesn't it get you in the mood? HA!

Diving into an ocean-pool, a coffee farm tour, and the Panama Canal at work )
The trip in general was great. I had a great time and did so much, learned so much and met so many great people it's hard to even put into words. It's funny because I agreed to go on the trip with my friends since my plans to go to Japan fell through and it was cheap enough to not damage my finances at the time, and for real, it was one of the best experiences of my life.

Costa Rica

Welcome to part two of my Central America trip pictures, now featuring gorgeous Costa Rica.
Invisible volcanoes, funky frogs, cloudy ziplines, best hot springs ever, bumpy surfing and more! )

Believe me: Costa Rica is so awesome it now seems like a waste having only spent about a week there.

Next (and final) stop: Panama.

The United Arab Emirates

Last September, my then boyfriend and I went to the UAE for ten days. We were visiting some friends of his in Abu Dhabi, so we didn't do as much sightseeing as I would have wanted, but I got to see and experience things I never thought I would.

Here are some of them:
