The Last Few Weeks (in Lazy List Form)

Things I Love Right Now
    Despicable Me (Single-Disc Edition)
  • The DRUMS on Guitar/Band Hero
  • Eggs Benedict
  • Busy-ness at work, meaning large handfuls of cash to count!
  • Cheesy holiday teen romance novels
  • 7 new CD's I got for Christmas, plus a mix
  • Despicable Me
  • Seeing old friends over the holidays
  • The idea of whitening my teeth, which will happen soon
  • The large amount that is going to appear on my next paycheck
  • The Sing Off on NBC, and acapella groups in general
  • Finally getting to tell people I picked a major

Things I Hate Right Now
  • All the good holiday food that I can't stay away from
  • My car in this weather
  • This weather
  • The Internet not working for 24 hours at a time, on and off for a week
  • My coat somehow spewing out feathers all over my back, ALL THE TIME
  • Writer's block
  • Stupid dreams! Argh! And the person who occupies them! You need to not exist anymore! 
  • Indecision about my next job status

Over this last month of vacation I've felt really grateful to have so many leisure opportunities. Not since Christmas of 2009 did I have more than 3 straight weeks of time where I didn't have to go to school. Taking classes during the summer kept me from being bored, but it also meant that fall semester was waiting for me right at the end. Right now I'm relishing in my last week of freedom before the spring semester starts, although work is a bitch. Not really. It's just that waking up early and doing the same thing everyday gets old pretty fast. Good thing it's an easy job and I actually like it most of the time. 

I'm also thankful that I've gotten to spend a lot of time with family and friends. Seeing my buddies who go to different colleges is always something I look forward to, and I could only wish they were all here for longer. With some, it feels like the party is only getting started, but I know they'll be leaving before it's over. Here's to ... a good Christmas, great companions, and hopefully blogging more in the future. I need to get back on that train!

I'm guessing you meant Eggs Benedict. But that's ok. Also "IT'S SO FLUFFY!!"

Aw Shannon. I miss you. Keep writing. (:

Oops - I'm gonna change it to Benedict. Yeah, I knew what it was called.

And thank you, Malyssa! That helps me feel better :)
