Fulfilling a promise, a fun promise.
The only way to get out of a promise once it's made, is when that promise risks your well-being, then it's ok to get out of it, or well, that's how I see it.
A new year, new goals, new blessings, new achievements, a new chance of a better life for everyone.
Me? I used to write my new year's longings in an envelope and burned it upon 12 pm on New Year's. That never did anything good for me, until I learned that me, myself, and I are the only ones responsible for my progress and future, I learned to keep up at my own pace, not the one others wanted or expected of me, and my life is better for it, even if sometimes I feel its sucks.
I'm rambling, but I have a good reason so try to keep up with me.
Between the Covid Pandemic, the economic situation, the illusion that is the recovery of my country, my asphyxiating job, the lack of social life, and some other things, my 2021 was boring as flat, and I thought that maybe I would collapse before the end of it.
But I attempt blogging and found a place worthwhile, where I can be myself, warts and all, and I really like it, I get a sense of security, emotionally speaking, and besides, I make money from it, and I'm my own boss which is cool.
Don't worry, this isn't one of my Thank you Read. Cash and BCH articles,
at least not today.
This article is with another purpose, can you guess what it is?
At the beginning of December, my beloved friend @CoquiCoin threw a wonderful Christmas Challenge, in which all participants could give virtual gifts to whomsoever they choose. I entered the challenge and gave some gifts to her, to my dear friend @Belozoriana and to the wonderful Sawnta Ed, who we know as @TengoLoTodo
I maxed out my share of imagination of that week, but I wanted to give something that I really believed they'd enjoy and cherish.
For Coqui it was a Venetian Carnival Mask, one I have to deliver to her hands personally; for Belozoriana it was a Venezuelan Cookbook, I have to translate it and scan the images to send it to her.
For Ed it was a video of me doing a Pizza Toss. This came out from an article I wrote about pizza, and he and I had a laugh just thinking of me throwing the pizza dough in the air and I said that probably would land on the floor or in my face. Since it was a hilarious idea and he seemed to enjoy just the thought of that I decided to give him that.
But I got in trouble, many also liked the idea of seeing me doing that so, I was asked to post the video for all to see, instead of sending it to Ed personally and I agreed.
Since I'm a woman of my word, and despite I hate seeing myself in the video because I look awful most of the time, today I made that video and now I'm sharing it with you all.
You have no idea how funny this was and how hard it was taking a good shot before ruining the dough completely. I made simple pizza dough, nothing fancy, and the toppings, also simple, pepperoni, and veggies for the other one.
Last night I saw a video of a guy, I don't remember the name, explaining the technique of the toss. So I tried to memorize it and rose up to the challenge once the dough was ready but as expected, I had several fails...
It was fun! After that practice my sister and I shoot the video, well, she recorded, I made a mess which ended with a little burned yet delicious pizza.
I'll leave the video link here for you, sorry, it's in Spanish, my brain wasn't up for making a pizza toss and speaking English at the same time.

See you next time.
