Chocolate Chip Cookies

These chocolate chip cookies are soooo good, my grandma always makes them around Christmas but you can just as well bake them on everyday basis. I finally got the recipe from her and I decided to share it with you. They aren't those typical chewy chocolate chip cookies, they're quite crispy. But when you've had one you'll want another one. I made two batches and I thought the second one tasted a little better because I baked them slightly longer. I'll put pictures below of both batches and the size of the cookies.
I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I do!

(I know many people don't use cup measurements and I don't either, so if you are one of those people then just use a regular mug, that's what I always do anyways and they taste just as good!)

For the cookies you will need:

1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar                      
1 cup brown sugar                           
2 eggs
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
Pinch of salt 
1 cup shredded coconut
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips 

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F) 
  2. Cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt and coconut. And lastly, stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Form 2-3 cm (depends on how big you want the cookies to be, you could do really few huge ones it's totally up to you) wide balls and put on to a baking sheet.
  4. Bake until edges are nicely golden/browned. 
  5. Enjoy!

A Friend I Can't Wait To Meet

I can't be the only one that is still waiting for that "one best friend". It's not that I don't have any friends but I always feel like an outsider or that I'm being ignored. And I do have 2 or 3 really good friends who I guess I consider my best friends but I'm pretty sure they don't consider me as their best friend because they've got a BEST friend, who they tell everything and do everything with. This sounds a bit confusing but I hope you know what I mean. 
I think I've always felt like this. I remember when I was younger I used to say to my mum like, " I feel like I have no friends" and "I want to have a best friend" and I feel like nothing has changed.  I did have three best friends when i was in 3-7 grade but we've grown apart and we're really different now. 

I really want that friend who you want to do almost everything with, can tell everything and so on. That friend doesn't necessarily have to be girl it can just as well be a boy and it doesn't have to be just one person, it could be two, three etc. 

And I believe that this/these friends are waiting for me somewhere and I will meet them. If it's this year, next year, or in fifty years I don't know but I will meet that/those friends and I can't wait.

That's all for now, comment below if you can relate or if you have found that one friend. :)
