The time I accidentally BUNKED my online classes ๐Ÿ˜….

Hi!

As you may know, I'm a sleepyhead...

This is a funny story๐Ÿฌ.

A couple of months ago, I had about 2-4 online classes everyday.(Now I only have about 2 per day..)

My first class was from 9:30-10:00 am.and my second class was from 10:00 to 10:30.

Really tight schedule ๐Ÿ˜ข.

I woke up at around 9:15 and went up to the first floor to attend my classes.

I logged in and I waited for my teacher to start the class. It took forever.....
       The time was already 9:30..

So I decided to lay down on the bed and rest my eyes for a bit.

              * * * *

I suddenly woke up. I checked the time. It was 10:45!!!!

I slept through 2 of my online classes ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜….

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

Has something like this ever happened to you??

Let me know in the comments below๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡

My biggest secret.. ( haha not really ๐Ÿ˜‚)

๐Ÿ˜ผ.

Yes. It's just been a couple of weeks since I got 1001 views.
Now I'm at 1,500!!!!!
๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฑ☺️☺️☺️.
Thank you soooo much supporting me..


Ok soo... As I promised.
My secret recipe for pizza sauce...
 It can be made under a minute!
So.. it's not really a recipe...
You just throw in a bunch of ingredients in a bowl, mix it up and u have yummy sauce..


Anyways, there are 2 methods.

1st method:
Ingredients:
Ketchup
Oregano flakes
Hot sauce
Salt
Pepper
Mix!!!!
There you go.
You're done.

2nd method:
Ingredients:
Ketchup
Hot sauce
Schezwan sauce
Mix!
And you're done.
I found a secret recipe and that's cool๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

I hope this post will save you a lot of time and tomatoes.
 you need like 8 tomatoes to make pizza sauce..
So yes! I saved you 8 tomatoes ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

That is the last post in Thoughts and Dashes for this week.
My mom is writing her guest blog in ENEF (Evin's never ending footsteps).
It will be published in a few hours☺️.



Well, my "secret Recipe" isn't a secrecy anymore...
Let's keep going'!!!!

        Bye dots!!!⚫

My artworks and pics I clicked!!๐Ÿ“ธ

Hi dots!

As you know by the title, I will be displaying my artworks and pics I clicked during this lockdown!

This can come in really handy, when I don't feel like writing๐Ÿคฉ.

       My art works:


 Abstract art

 Betsy and Max in a swing.

 Pastel art showing Birds want Freedom๐Ÿฅ

My favourite one, called "The Window View".
 Spray painting ๐Ÿ˜‚

A summer painting - Watermelons!๐Ÿ‰
Pics I clicked ๐Ÿ“ธ

Is this a broken glass? No it's not.

 Looks like a broken glass!

So the 2 photos above are actually illusions.
But they are not a piece of a broken glass!
I'm not gonna tell you what it is.
Guess in the comments down below.
Even my dad was like "you broke a glass?!"
๐Ÿ˜‚
If you get it right, then well.... you're clever๐Ÿ˜‚




 A mirror image..

So.. that was it!
Thank you for... Visiting my blog!
Stay tuned for my mom's guest travel blog at ENEF..
make sure to guess in the comments!
Byee!

Something Different...



hey readers..!๐Ÿ‘Š

I haven't been posting in a while, but I came up with something different!
a review!
i will be doing more of these, but for today, I'm gonna be reviewing my favorite Racing video game!

its called Hill Climb Racing 2. Developed By Finger Soft.
there's also Hill Climb Racing, but I like the second version better [HCR2].


Hill Climb Racing 2 รข€“ Apps on Google Play

also. it was just updated!

HCR2 is a perfect time killer for racing fans or just casual gamers. like me.
it only takes up 121 MB space.
it is an online game, but there's also an offline mode.
you can participate in lots of different races and cups.๐ŸŽฎ
the more races you win, the higher your rank is!
you can even join  in a team, or create one, then you get to race against other teams. there's also a chat box to talk with your teammates.

you unlock vehicles as you go on.
from Cars to Formula 1's.๐Ÿ
this game allows you to challenge and invite your friends and customize your own avatar [i.e. the driver].

there's also 'adventure mode" where you can collect coins and treasure chests to upgrade your vehicles.

but the downside is that there are lots of ads.
other than that, this game is simply fantastic!!


these are my thoughts on this game.

but you should totally download this game!๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†

also, what is your favorite video game of all time?
comment down below!๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡
well, I've been playing HCR2 for over a year now..so thats my fave game!

P.S.   remember a couple weeks ago when I told you if my blog gets to 1,500 views I will share my secret recipe for pizza sauce???
Hmm. If you do remember, then my Blog stats is currently at 1,410 views..
We'll wait.⏳
                               
                          Thanks for reading dashies!
                               ( Thats a nickname I made up๐Ÿ˜‚. I'm gonna call YOU dashy from now.
I dont know why but..๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚..
                           Bye!
I'll think of  a better nickname......

my rollerskating tournament.

[this is my 30th post!]
hi!
this is part 2!
if you haven't read part one, go to  this link
then come back here to read part 2!

okay, so. My first skating tournament.
at first, I thought I wasn't gonna get selected.
because, I  am not the fastest๐Ÿ˜ฐ.
but, I did NOT want to get selected, 'cause I  didn't want to go .
I joined skating, just to learn something new, and for fun. I didn't want to  go  to tournaments and stuff.

the competition was on the 21st of  ........... I forgot.

I had to wake up at 6:00 am!
but the bus was boarded only by 6:30.
i knew a girl from my school, she was in the fifth grade.
the tournament was in another city.
it was a rough ride.
it even rained!
finally, after 3 hours, we reached the school.
i put on my skates. it was time for my first race.200 mtrs.
the track was so slippery!
it wasn't even a track.
we had to go around for 2 rounds.
when I heard the whistle, I fell down [No, seriously, all the skaters sprinted, and i was on the track!] but, it WAS my first race after all๐Ÿ˜….
so i got back up. i fell down again.
then finally i started to skate.
i wasn't last, but i wasn't first either.
i came 4th!
but I didn't mind.
i made a few new friends and i skated around for a bit. apart from the first race, it was actually quite fun.
second race, noon, 600 mtrs.
before this race, i had my lunch.
600 mtrs was a lot.
but i was ready this time.
only a few people registered for 600 mtrs.
so I was qualified for finals!
[no, I'm just kidding].
anyways, I was actually running third this time!
i might've won..
but, by the last round , I had no energy left.
yet again, I came fourth.
but this time, I WAS REALLY MAD AT MYSELF! I COULD'VE WON!

only 2 students from my school won!

we came back home by 10:30 pm.
it was really late.
but today was fun!

"Failure is the first step to success"

hope you enjoyed reading!

Lockdown stuff๐Ÿ™„

Hola!

I can't believe the fact that I spent 3 months staying at home..
That's the longest I've stayed at home!

Anyways, In this blog I will be writing about some new things I learnt..
And pros and cons of the lockdown and staying at home.

New skills:
*I started a blog!!!
And I learnt a lot by it!

*I started learning Mandarin Chinese.

*I am doing a workout to do the splits! ( A gymnastics skill)

*I don't remember the other things, so let's move on.

Pros and Cons.
Pros:
You get to learn in your PJ's!
Online classes start late!
(Like, if I go to school, classes start at 8:30, but my online classes only start by noon!)
You get less homework.
You can have movie marathons!
You can do anything!

Cons:
You have online classes.
You get lots of homework.
You cannot go out of your house.
You cannot see your friends.
You can't go to school๐Ÿ˜ข
I love going to school.

That's it!
I have a question!

Would you rather stay in lockdown for 1 more month and do whatever you want,
                         Or

Would you rather go to school/college/work next week?

I would totally go to school.
But I really hope that this virus goes away quickly ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž

                            Loggin' off



Last year of school..

Hi! I'm Evin's sister Rupa. I'm guest blogging today! . I'm 17..and I just completed my last year of school!.๐Ÿ˜Œ
The beginning of the year was quite rocky..I was separated from my friends and put in a different section๐Ÿ˜•.. but they always had my back and never let me down๐Ÿคฉ. But, I got accustomed to my new class ..I rekindled my friendship with one of my best friends..and I also got a new friend who became really close to me..and it seemed like nothing had changed when we were together ๐Ÿ˜. I made lot of new friends and turns out my class wasn't as bad as I'd thought ๐Ÿ˜….But as every day, event,everything we did  together passed by we realised that it was our last time together at school๐Ÿ˜’..2019-2020 turned out to be one of the best years in my school life!. Finally the day some looked forward to and some dreaded came...the last day of school ๐Ÿ˜ฃ..We had a carnival going on at school and we enjoyed the day together with our friends, teachers and classmates ☺️.. the last bell rang ...most of my friends were in tears ๐Ÿ’”. It was hard to accept the fact that it would be impossible to see everyone together at the same place again..๐Ÿ˜ฃ With heavy hearts we bid each other good-bye...and just like that the best part of our lives came to an end๐Ÿ’”.We all thought that we were having fun but we never realised that  we were making memories ๐Ÿ˜Š!
We have our whole life ahead of us  but school life will always be special ❤️!



It was really nice blogging! Tell me what you think of the post in the comments.๐Ÿ™‚Have a Nice day!

My rollerskating evolution ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Hey!

As you know by the title,
This post will be about my favourite pastime, and my Co-curricular  activity in my school. And my skating evolution.


I got transferred to my new school in the third grade (with Sana) .
The school was new as well.
So I didn't know anyone.
I and Sana decided to stick together..
Wait, this blog is about Skating!
So let me fast forward....

A few months later, we had to pick a Co-curricular activity.
I don't remember why, but I chose skating.
At the start, I was really excited , because 
I was learning a new sport!
I hate wearing my knee pad and elbow pads and stuff, they were so uncomfortable!!!
And my pink helmet looked really bad on me!

But skating was really fun!

4th grade: this was my least favourite year in rollerskating....
I was the only girl!!!
I had no one to accompany me๐Ÿ˜‘.
So, I lost interest like totally!!!
I wanted to change my CC.
But my coordinator said I had to stay in the same CC for at least 3 years!

I was really mad.
But the worst part was the talent show.
We were doing a dance called "tanoora dance" or something I don't know.
We had to wear something like a big apron connected to a gown!
No offence, but it looked so bad!!!!
Everyone laughed at me๐Ÿ˜–

But,when we went on stage and did the dance , the audience actually applauded!!
That made me feel a bit better.

Fifth grade: 3 other girls joined, and we became friends.
This year, it was actually quite fun!
We played basketball and some other games on skates!
But again, the talent show.
We did a mime show on skates!
My friends said we didn't even skate around. We were just standing in a fixed place. It was true . What is the point of wearing skates???!??
But it was totally way better than last year..

6th grade: so...
2 girls joined a different CC activity.
So now, it was me and another girl .
We became close friends.
Oh! I totally forgot to mention!
I had quad wheels from third grade.
I had practice wheels at first, but then I started training in quad wheels,and get this, until 4th grade, I was the only girl in quad wheels!
Anyways, this year is when I went on my first ever rollerskating tournament!!
It was so exciting ๐Ÿคฉ


However, I won't be writing about the tournament in this post..
That was part 1.(my rollerskating evolution)
I will be writing about the tournament anytime sooner!

Also, I have a new concept! - guest blogs!
Stay tuned if you want read blogs written by my family, friends,and other guest bloggers!☺️

Bye for now✌️

Raining cats and dogs!๐Ÿ˜ธ๐Ÿถ

Hi!

Today, it rained so heavily!
And I had to blog about that!


At around 3:45 it started to drizzle..
Then rain was pounding down!!
And I've never heard thunder as loud as today!
(Good thing I'm not scared of lightning or thunder๐Ÿ˜…)

Heavy rains are pretty rare, where I live..
I love to get wet and dance around with an umbrella..
I also love to sing super loudly while it's raining, because no can hear my voice๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.
I did that today!
Try singing in the rain! It is awesome!!

Also, this is my favourite kind of weather⛈️.
Taking photos is the best part..
Speaking of which, I took some photos and a video today!

a group of cows is called a 'murder'.

In just a month of blogging!

Thank you so much for reading my blogs!!
It seriously means a lot๐Ÿ˜ธ

And thankyou for all the comments!

This is a special post✨✨✨
 Why do I like to blog?

First of all, I like anything that is related to literature.
I participate in literature competitions , and last year I won in one!

Why did I start blogging?
Well,it all started when I wrote my first book with my friends.
( I wrote about it in my "dreams and aspirations" blog)
Click Here to read my "dreams and aspirations" blog..

My mom told me that i could could start a blog and write my stories and other stuff in it.
And,there we go!

Why did I name my blog "Thoughts and Dashes"?

Well, I always have thoughts on my mind and I am a daydreamer.
But, when my mom asked me what to name my blog, I suddenly thought of "Dots and Dashes".
So then, I was like " why not name it Thoughts and Dashes??

I like to blog, because I can customise my blog my own way, and it makes me happy!
At the top of all..
Reading your comments!

Thank you loads☺️☺️☺️.

P.S. if my blog gets to 1,500 page views anytime sooner, I will share my secret recipe for pizza sauce !
Which can be made under a minute!




Friday, 22 May 2020

you have pizza?๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Hola!


Is there someone in the world who doesn’t like pizza?
well, pizza is my favorite food.

In fact, my favorite video game is a related to pizza!
It’s called Good Pizza, Great Pizza.

You should totally download it!
i am really good at that game.

Anyways, I made pizza today!

At home!

All by MYSELF!

It was AWESOME!

OK umm.

So, making pizza at home is easier than you think!
Since we are in lock down, I’ve been craving for pizza.

But then, I thought that I could make pizza at home!
DUH!

Rupa and I made it together. But I had already made pizza before.

It turned out really good!

But this time, I made it all by myself.
Fine I admit, I had a little help from each of my family member.

But it was mostly me.

Anyways, all you need to make pizza is dough and sauce, cheese, and toppings of your choice!
Well, it takes time to make the dough.

Then knead it.

Then rest it.

Then knead it again and rolling the base into a circle.
That’s the hardest part.

It’ll take time to type down the whole recipe and method, so here’s a link.

This is how my Pizza came out.






the image is a bit blurry, but the pizza was awesome!
everyone loved it!

also, the sauce is a secret recipe i found today!
   
                       thanks for reading!
  

have you ever made pizza before?
what is your favorite food?
tell me in the comments below!

P.S. play Good Pizza, Great Pizza.
[its awesome]

                        bye!๐Ÿ˜€
















My mom's birthday surprise! Part 2.

hey!

This is part 2.

Umm, what was I saying?
Ohh, yes.

After I had my yummy stack of pancakes๐Ÿฅž, I watched a couple episodes of my favorite series , from Netflix with my mom. It's called "Alexa & Katie".
It's really funny and it's mostly about friendship.

Anyways, Rupa made lunch and I helped her.( A little..)
We made Schezwan fried rice, a Chinese cuisine with gravy and a veggie ball.



It was pretty good. So,we did American, Indian,Chinese.
Since we forgot dessert, I asked my dad to buy a cake. But outside the shop, there was a big queue. So he left. Without a cake! ๐Ÿ˜‘ I was pretty mad, because I love ๐Ÿฐ!!

Well, I had to attend my online class ๐Ÿ˜‘.
So I didn't really do anything .

By the evening, we had a mini-photo-shoot .
Then I did rollerskating.

My mom had a cloud meeting.☁
So by that time, we prepped for the dinner course.
We were making Italian and Mexican.
On the menu: Bruschetta and Quesadillas.

love Quesadillas.๐Ÿคค
 But Rupa said she didn't want to make Bruschetta , because it was just raw veggies on bread.
I didn't mind because we were making Quesadillas either way!

And it was really easy to make as well!
It was the best homemade dinner ever!๐Ÿ˜„


 quesadillas๐Ÿคค๐Ÿ˜‹


Finally, we had a movie night.๐Ÿฟ

That was it!.๐Ÿ˜„
Thanks for reading!

                          Adiรณs!✌️

(I'm learning Spanish , remember?)

Do you think i should start writing in Spanish, (with translations.)??
So you could learn a bit of Spanish as well!
Comment down below ๐Ÿ˜œ!

                               Bye!๐Ÿ‘‹

Music lover๐ŸŽถ

Hi!

What is your favourite kind of music?

 I really like pop music. 
I am not a big fan of  rap though.

I really love listening to the band 'One Direction' . Although the band broke up 5 years ago, the 1D fandom is still alive.
I'd say that this fandom is immortal.

I also like listening to instrumental tunes and classical instruments like the piano ๐ŸŽน and the violin.๐ŸŽป

My top 4 favorite music artists are : 

One direction ๐Ÿ˜.
Taylor Swift.
Justin Bieber.
Shawn Mendez.

Did I mention any of your favorite singers? 
What kind of music do YOU usually listen to?
Tell me in the comments down below๐Ÿ˜œ.

Part 2 of  "it's my mom's birthday!" Will be out tomorrow ! 
Stay tuned!

                             Peace✌️

IT'S MY MOM'S BIRTHDAY! part 1.


Today is my mom’s birthday!

I will be writing all about this in 2 parts.
This is part 1.

A week ago, Rupa and I were searching up recipes. We wanted to make all the meals for the day.

Since, we are in lock down, I wanted to do cuisines around the world; my mom loves to travel. So, we picked out American, Chinese, Italian, French and Greek cuisine recipes.๐ŸŒ

We thought of making breakfast in bed, lunch, early dinner and dessert.  

 my dad bought all the ingredients, but then 
 I realized that we forgot to get ingredients for the dessert!๐Ÿ˜…

Yesterday evening, I made a card with a photo of me and my mom, ten years ago. I also made a bookmark since she reads lots of books.๐Ÿ“š

My sis tried to paint a portrait of my mom, but… well let’s just say it was kind of…. Not-so like my mom. But then she fixed it. Well, she covered it up and painted a new painting, that was really good.๐Ÿ˜„

I couldn’t wait another day to give my present, so I decided to give it to her by 12:00 am.

But, in a “cooler” way.
I organised a treasure hunt! [again, I really like treasure hunts]

The treasure was my present and Rupa’s painting.
It was really awesome. My mom really liked our presents.๐Ÿฅฐ


 MY SISTER'S PRESENT..


 MY CARD'S FRONT PAGE.



 INSIDE THE CARD. AND THE BOOKMARK.



I wanted to watch a movie. And I asked Rupa and my mom to watch it with me. They said they wanted to sleep [it was 12:30 am]

I kept bugging them, and they finally agreed, we watched a movie called “back of the net”.
It is kind of boring at start, but then it’s a really nice movie. Check it out sometime!๐Ÿ‘

We went to sleep at around 1:45.
                                      _ _ _ _

I woke up Rupa at 6:45, without an alarm! [I wake up at noon usually, I’m a sleepyhead]๐Ÿ˜ด

We started making breakfast.๐Ÿด

Fluffy pancakes with chocolate syrup. [not really, I got chocolate and melted it, so more like melted chocolate, but lets just go with choc syrup…]๐Ÿซ

Rupa made tea as well.๐Ÿต

Our pancakes were not like I expected, but when I ate it, it was really good!๐Ÿ˜‹



So, that was part 1.

Hope you enjoyed reading!๐Ÿ˜‰

Part 2 will be coming out really soon!

Follow me on my blog, so you stay posted!

WHY ALGEBRA?


Hey!

I haven’t been posting in a while, but here I am!

You have been studying algebra from the start of middle school [ probably] ...

But have you ever wondered why?๐Ÿค”

Today, I will be sharing my thoughts about this.

Almost everything we study in mathematics is applicable in real life, for instance; addition, division, fractions, decimals etc.

 But not really algebra.

So why do we learn algebra?

I did some “research” and found out that sometimes, we DO use algebra in real life without realizing it!

 #1 while cooking.

#2 technologies.

#3 logical thinking.

#4 fitness. Etc.

 if you want to find out more about how algebra is applied in these daily activities, its simple! just search the web!๐Ÿ˜‰
Just kidding!
go to this link for examples:
https://studiousguy.com/examples-of-algebra-in-everyday-life/


I personally find algebra really interesting.
What about you?
