Tastes and feels exactly like instant noodles (Except for the soup), we usually call that instant ramen here. But yeah, in future versions I want to add soup, vegetables and meat... We'll see how that turns out :)

Ah, I also tried adding directly the spices and other ingredients to the water, but they just don't catch enough flavour, unless you put a whole ton of each on them, so it's not really a god idea. several other methods also failed, IMO the most efficient method to add flavour to pasta is using the pan. Oh, also, you don't really fry them. You just use some oil and heat to stick the flavour to the pasta, you don't need to leave them there for more than two minutes, so they don't usually get fried unless you don't move them enough.

Still, I wonder what kind of ramen it's. Rather curious since your mix of ingredient is barely present in asian kitchen xD

As far as I know, soup takes a lot of time to prepare, since it's mostly bones (pork?) slowly boiling in water along with the other ingredient, minus noodle.

My wife had to leave out of town for a week. Her sister kidnap- I mean wanted one on one time while she was in state. I can't work until next week. Bored. Missing her. Missing them. I fell asleep in the nursery. I slept on the floor next to the Teddy bears. Now I have a kink in my neck. I'm so random.

I need to vent...
Don't...you don't even have to read this.
Just skip the crap and don't even bother.
It's pathetic.
I am pathetic.
And my whole family is no better for sticking up to me all the time and thinking I might be able to do something.
My aunt called me and gave me the lecture of how I am ruining my life and how I am doing nothing about it as if I don't already now that. She told me how I'm hurting my parents and how I'm just wasting my potential and I already know the first one, but wth is she talking about when she mentions potential. Sure, I was a very smart kid when I was little but that was SO 15 years ago... I'm not smart anymore. I know I am not smart... I don't feel smart. I don't even want to feel smart anymore. I just want nothing. People grow up and change. They change, whether they like it or not. And I grew up. And changed. For the worse. Nobody can alter that and I don't even know why the hell are they trying. I just wish they would leave me to destroy myself. But nobody will do that because of mother, since she loves me too much and I'll only make her sad if I destroy myself. Not like I'm not doing that already, but...
When I was little I always had the feeling that great things await me. It wasn't just one of those positive vibes and views of the future that you have. No. It's like when you wake up in the morning and you can tell what your day will be - good or bad. And it really turns out the way you felt it. I felt that way for my future. Well I don't anymore. That feeling is gone for who knows how long now.
My aunt told me I should come back to Montana, because in Sofia I'm not doing anything. Yes. Thank you. I have NOT noticed that until now. I don't wake up every morning wondering what the hell am I doing with my life and if I did something differently yesterday, than maybe today would be a little less bad. I don't wake up thinking how many loans I already have that I need to return and I'm not even 23 yet. And I most CERTAINLY don't wake up, wondering how can I be so worthless and do nothing with my life. Why would I even think about that. My life is rainbows and flowers!
I have something so many people didn't get to have and yet I am just wasting it away, doing nothing... I enjoy being worthless, didn't you know? When I was little, I always dreamed of being a useless human being when I grow up.

I know how that feels, I'm in a somehow similar situation myself. And I'm afraid I have no idea about how to solve it. So good luck, It's all I can say :(

Of course people will bother. We all care about eachother on shuu. Families are meant to worry about you. I know that for a fact, since my mom and sisters talk to me like every day. I don't think its good to put yourself down like that. Of course, you're smart, or you wouldn't even know how to type a response better than "I r hungy, u hungry 2?"

I think we're all destined for great things, we just have to grasp them. I know you want to do something with your life. So, what do you enjoy doing? Like me, I've always enjoyed learning what drugs can do the human body. Legal drugs, mind you. So, right now I'm taking college algebra to get into infomatics healthcare specialist.

Bleh, it might take me a few years since math is not my strong suit, but I'm pushing ahead, for myself and my family. I think with enough brainstorming and the internet for info, you can find something to do with your life. I hope my rambling helps, in a way and best of luck to you and remember not to give up, no matter how helpless the situtation looks. There's always a light at the end of the tunnel :)

Rock, Deoxys,

What I'm about to tell you is advice, not my words of "YOU MUST DO IT LIKE THIS AND YOU MUST DO IT NOW!!!"

When I was 23, I always read about the succesful people at my age while I was just a student in IT and haven't done anything in my life that was (for me) anything meaningful. I didn't have a job and spent my time playing World of Warcraft (clean now, Thank god).

However, I was depressed and hated myself because my partents and everyone around me was forcing me to get a job and not spend my time with games. I know that nothing just falls in your lap and reading that some 23 year old found something awesome and is making millions because of it isn't helping either.

The goal to do is see things positive and grasp the oppertunity you get. The hard part is the see the positive things, however, grasping oppertunities is a good shot. Go around and look for jobs in newspapers or job agencies. Maybe try and help out in the community, just so you can get some positivity from people around you. Maybe they can even help out finding a job for you.

But please Rock, do not think that the best way to solve your problems is "not waking up"( If I read this wrong, correct me).

If you need some more advice, feel free to PM me.

(Just kidding)
I'm studying IT myself, had been doing that for the last 3 years. Lost the first one and a half when switched to the new 'bolonia' grades (The new european [s]crap[/s] standard, not sure if that's the English name for it too), so I'm basically finishing the first year AGAIN now.

I can't really say I have a bad life, objectively speaking my life is amazing (Studying what I wanted where I wanted, mom pays for the rent of a small room and university, and have a small income doing little jobs fixing stuff that I can use to pay food and books, all I need in this life).

It's just that after 3 years of programming bullshit applications (In a way that would get you fired from any job) and studying maths, economics, laws and other slightly unrelated things, I've realised that the things I want to know aren't taught in any university in my country (Mainframe managing and social engineering are my preferences for an IT related job), but I can't leave and switch to another grade, because It would be a terrible waste of both time and money for me and my mother. You know, as macbeth said, 'I am in blood/ Stepped in so far that, should I wade no more,/ Returning were as tedious as go o’er.'. And as you can possibly imagine, I can't say I'm happy with my current situation. Even if I tried I couldn't get a job to pay for my studies (with over 5 million unemployed in the country they ask for a grade and 3 years of experience even to work on a supermarket), and I really feel like a leech for that. Thinking that my mother is working hard so I can study something that I have finished hating just kills me.

About what do I want to do: Since I was a child my dream has been to open a bookshop in a small town (In Spain or any English speaking country, preferably the second one given the current situation). You can imagine how difficult is to do that nowadays, with the decline of physical books, the small market share in a 50k habitant town (plus the competence) and the money you need to start a business like that. I've been thinking about it for years and maybe it could work with an online store with national shipping, but still I fail to see how could I manage to live from a bookshop. I still work on the business plan and other stuff in my free time, just for fun.

Anyway, who cares, I'll finish the grade and I'll surely finish working programming accounting applications 10 hours a day for the rest of my life like everyone else, who gives a ****? It's always nice to rant about it somewhere from time to time thought, sorry for the wall of text

Its not a wall of text, as long as you space it out, its easier to read. The idea of a bookstore is interesting, if you have good prices I could buy my books from you, instead of Amazon. I'm an avid reader, online and offline. I'm actually going to Books A Million tomorrow. I don't think its fruitless, who knows you might be very successful and we all need a place to rant, sometimes :)
