    • spring on a plate

      As the weather outside is cold and gloomy, I decided to bring spring on my own. Today for lunch I prepared two sides (spring salad with pea, asparagus and figs and sweet-potatoes fries) and wild salmon, which I am trying to master. The skin of the salmon was not as crispy as I wanted, but it was better seasoned than the previous time. But, after so many trails I think I landed with the ultimate sweet-potato fries. They are crispy, even though they are baked, thus healthy. IMG_8806

    • announcement- CAS project

      As the gathering of school supplies goes extremely well, we decided that it is time to organize the cake auction. My talented colleague has prepared this amazing poster, informing about the "cake sale", which will take place on the 26th of February 2018. We have placed the infographic in school elevators as they are frequented by everyone in our high school. Furthermore, we have made a time-schedule for the event and determined the types of cakes that everyone has to bake. I can not wait to bake a brownie and a carrot cake. Especially, as I know that it is for a good cause.IMG_88284

    • small steps- back to sport

      I could not be happier that I am finally able to return to working out. I was immobilized for over a month, which made me less focused and surprisingly more tired. Today, I attended a first yoga class this year. Unfortunately, due to the break, I am in a terrible physical shape, so I was not able to do all the exercises. Furthermore, my foot did hurt me in several positions. However, I believe that with time I will earn by strength back.

    • Service during prom

      Prom was a very special evening for me. Not only was I able to wear my gown, but also I was able to relax and have fun with my schoolmates, probably for the last time before the finals. During the official part of the prom, I volunteered to distribute the cake to the teacher and parents. I was also the one to officially slice the cake, which was a true honor for me. 

       

      Fulfilled learning outcomes: 

      1.Planned and initiated activities

    • Soups

      As it is very cold outside, I became fond of soups, especially creams. Today, I made a pear-parsley cream with thyme and caramelized fig and salted pumpkin seeds. I have moderated a recipe, I found online and it turned out delicious. 

      Fulfilled learning outcomes: 

      1.Developing a new skill

      2. Undertaking new challenges

    • CAS project - Pencil Box

       Lack of school supplies is the leading cause of not attending school according to UNICEF. With my classmates, we decided to work on this issue by establishing "Pencil Box". The mission of the project is to help children in the impoverished areas of India. We have contacted the "Roshni Foundation" to attach Pencil Box to their school-supply chain. We had already informed the people at our school about the incentive, by preparing an open presentation about the project. Furthermore, we have set special cartoon boxes, for the people deposit the school supplies, clothes, shoes etc. for the children. In order to ship the goods to India, we will organize a fundraising event, during which we will sell cakes. The money raised will hopefully cover the unavoidable shipping costs.
       
      This CAS project combines Creativity (as we will bake the cakes ourselves ) and Service (as we are connected with the schools in India, with access to children in need of our help). Through the CAS project, I will fulfill the following learning outcomes;
      1. Plan and initiate activities
      2. Working collaboratively with others
      3. Engaged with issues of global importance

    • Healthy cheat-day

      Lately, I am experimenting with sweet-potato "fries". I like fires, but try to maintain a healthy diet, so they are not actually fried, but baked with spices and olive oil. Each time I make them, they taste better. Today I experimented with drips; made guacamole. Unfortunately, it was to sour. I hope to solve this issue the next time.

      Learning outcomes;

      1. Undertaking new challenges

      2. Developing new skills
