Yeah, I know I'm a bit late, but I didn't have ANY time during the holidays, so I didn't post anything about MERRY CHRISTMAS or HAPPY NEW YEAR. Best gift? Best food item? Best drunken episode (if you partied)? Share!
I got some great stuff from my parents, including a new Canon Powershot camera and an absolutely GORGEOUS leather bound study bible with my name on the cover. I'm putting off the process of highlighting and flagging my favorite verses because I don't want to ruin the perfection. My family is not so much into sit-down dinners as we are into appetizers and desserts and wandering around with wine in one hand and munchies in the other. The advantage of this is that you feel less guilty about eating a lot, because you only ever have one or two in front of you. The disadvantage.....well, I think that goes without saying. I was stuffed. And my cousin kept refilling my wine glass, to the point of complete ridiculousness!! I must've had five or six glasses by the time we finally left (no, I was NOT driving).
Ironically, that was Christmas with my family. New Years was with my friends, at a parent's house, and they do not condone underage drinking. So my New Years was totally sober. Unfortunately. Eh, I'll just have to make up for it next year.
Today, I drove back to college, because I have work tomorrow. Classes don't begin for two weeks, but work does :/ Ah well, I need the moo-lah, and I don't have anything else to do. But the stupid housing department doesn't let us move back in early, so I'm crashing on a friend's couch. I was so excited to see her, but I opened the door to a very cold, very dark apartment. Sad!! I thought she was coming back today, but apparently it's tomorrow.
Anyway, so I have about a two-hour drive, which allows me plenty of time to think. And think. And think. And depress myself. And brainstorm new plot bunnies. And cheer myself up. And I realized that, by the time they were my age, EVERY one of the women in my family had met the man that they would eventually marry (and they are all still married), in fact many were engaged by my age (which is 20). Well, needless to say this is mildly depressing, as I sit here in my glorious single-ness (sarcasm).
And yeah, I know I'm starting to sound like a thirteen-year-old (will ANYONE love meeeeee???????), but seriously it's a little discouraging. Besides, MY journal, MY thoughts. We all have the right to be a little whiney occasionally.
Ggrrrrrr. Frustrating. Especially because I am OBSESSED with weddings. To the point of being unhealthy. I seriously considered being a wedding planner instead of a nurse.
Anyway, that's my day. I wish I could bake something to cheer me up, but all my supplies are locked in my dorm room..... *contemplates breaking in to my own dorm* Nah, I'll just watch Law & Order: SVU. Their problems are way bigger than mine.
Oh, and for those of you that are waiting for the next installment of ABC's: it's coming. Slowly. And it's D for Dursley. And I am welcome to ideas, outside of E, F, H, M and W. Those I have.
Ta-ta for now!
