A WIAW to lighten the mood

It’s August. AKA I start school in 16 days. Crap. As of now, I’m registered in 6 classes at two different community colleges (19 units 😮 ). I’m thinking that I’m going to need to drop one of my classes because I’ll most likely have NO time with my new job and all. Even with 5 classes It’ll probably still be tough. The past two semesters I had 5 classes each and it was a challenge to have enough time for all my school work, and maintain a good GPA so that I could be on the dean’s honor roll. aaand I didn’t even work then. That makes me super nervous. Erggg

I need to talk about something else before I get really upset/pissed off. What a perfect time to for a WIAW! 😉

If you’re in college, how many units can you handle at once? Do you suggest that I drop a class?

Yesterday was my brothers 21st birthday, and since I’ve been working all week, today has been my first day off. Soooo, I finally had time to make him a cake. I decided on making an oreo cake and I think it turned out great! Here’s an awkward picture of me with no makeup holding my creation (haha).

Here’s the boxed mix that I used to make the cake:

I bought it at target for just a couple bucks! It takes like no time at all to make, and all the ingredients you need come in the box. I decided to border the cake with whole oreo’s so I needed to buy those separately, though. So easy. Aaand you don’t even have to bake it, you can just refrigerate it for an hour or so after you prepare the ingredients and then it’s ready to eat. My brother wanted it more like ice cream so we froze it instead and I think it came out really well. I’m gonna have to keep this mix in mind for when I want to make something that looks pretty when I don’t have a lot of time 😀
