heartless journal
the life of a heartless demon
It's been a while since I wrote in here, I guess the occasion would be my grandmother on my moms side. Around this time 8 years ago my grandma passed away from diabetes and cancer. I didn't get to see her around the time she was bed ridden or during the funeral or after the cremation. Maybe it wouldn't be ideal for an 11 year old to have seen that. But to remember her and honor her memory I decided to attempt to make a pastry she made when she came to visit. An empanada. I'm pretty sure this first try won't match to the way she made them, but it's worth learning. I can remember that she always believed in me when I was in school, that I had the greatest potential like everyone around me to become something. My dad was always strict with me and my schooling, and just getting an answer wrong or not knowing was unacceptable to his standards, but my grandma always told me the things we don't know are the things we should try to learn. Something around those lines, she assured me that not knowing didn't make me an idiot and a failure, as for my dad, he always reminded me that my low grades proved otherwise. It's my grandmother's words that always overlapped the mind set my dad's put for me. I'll fall down but with the strength I have, I can always get up and keep walking forward. I'll always remember the best memories of my grandmother.
