「土」Merry Christmas!

It's that time of year again. Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!!
I like that my family is all around for Christmas, but I haven't been feeling the holiday cheer for a couple years now. Maybe I'll get back into it next year.
My dog surprisingly got a lot of presents this year, but he ruined a couple of them before the day was even through! This poor little gummy bear didn't stand a chance.

I got some nice boots from my mom, as well as a pretty cool leather jacket. I don't really know why I like studs so much, but I'm so happy I finally have something with them!

I met up with some friends finally today, and it was really good to see them. We ate entirely too much though. I honestly don't think I've eaten that much in a long time. My friend and I split 3 dishes between the two of us, and on hindsight that was a bad idea... but so yummy...

Huge dinner followed by huge snow ice. I couldn't even eat that much of it. Lychee flavored ice with pineapple on top with mochi. (and two blueberries. what??)

I'm super glad I got to see them this break.

Haven't seen many friends since coming home, but I have been pretty productive on a whole. I finished two scarves, worked a lot on a blanket, and read a couple books.
I just finished The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Honestly, I didn't want to like it. I tried to not like it, but by the middle of the book, I was interested. The style of writing in the beginning put me off, but then it became quite interesting.
And that makes 45 books this year. I can prob finish one or two more before the new years though. We'll see.
I have to send my laptop in to lenovo to get the camera fixed. Hopefully everything will be good after that.

I finished reading 1984 the other day. It was really interesting in the first and second parts, but the third part just was really weird. Surreal and strange. I couldn't really tell if things were actually happening at first. Strange thing to think about a book, considering that none of it actually happens.
I finished my finals today. It's been a stressful few days/week. Gotta finish packing up for tomorrow. I have to leave super early. I'm glad to be going home, but sad to be leaving school. We'll see. I need to recuperate for next semester!

「月」Study days

I've been really stressed out these days with the end of semester here and my first finals in college starting next week. I'm not too worried about my finals actually, especially since we're done with classes, there's a lot of time to study. What worries me are the papers. I've turned in a few, and I have 2 more due today. Just got to get them done.
Sometimes my friends are TOO good at helping me procrastinate. But I'm grateful for their company.
I like this song. Sometimes the free Starbucks songs are pretty good.
Today would be a very nice day to curl up in bed with some coffee and a movie, but alas, I brought this upon myself.
Time to write.

「水」River Run North

Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make Thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.
1984 — George Orwell (46)
The end of semester is pretty stressful. Too much bullshit everywhere. Maybe next semester i shouldn't work so many hours.
Lots to do, not enough coffee. I hope it'll warm up for these next two weeks, but that's wishful thinking.
Monsters Calling Home changed their name to Run River North. Not liking the change at the moment, but I guess I'll get used to it.
