Eh, this is probably well overdue but I feel like sharing anyways.
My Christmas break I can say was not the best nor the worst. First few days I spent chilling around doing nothing, completely uneventful. But that suddenly changed when my sister came to visit, bringing along her fiance. We spent 5 days together. It didn’t turn out as planned. There was supposed to be a trip out to Old St. Augustine the first day and have “family time” the next three days and the last was the final goodbyes basically. Yeah that didn’t work when the car was drifted to the side of the road and got super messed up on the way here. The first day was mechanic day/ bonding time. The second day was just as planned, girl time and movie night basically. The third day, Christmas, so we did what we usually do, open presents and spend the day having fun with our new toys. The fourth is when we ended up going to St. Augustine but we didn’t do much because it came up to do last-minute and we got a late start. The last day, they left around noon with the car almost fully fixed. That was all.
My Christmas itself was good. 🙂 I got what I wanted, my new Nook Tablet with an unexpected little nifty leather case/holder thingy for it. I got a bunch of clothing, but quite frankly I think my family is starting to learn what style I like because I really couldn’t complain about the new articles. I got these fuzzy-wuzzy boots that I wanted (which was the real surprise of all of this). Aside from my parents, my sister got me an art set and some new sketchbooks, my boyfriend got me a Nikon Coolpix, little stuffed penguin, and a few cd’s from my favorite bands. Other than that, I got gift cards to places like Hot Topic and Forever 21. I really can’t complain about all that, especially with my pre owned Barnes & Nobles card that came in hand for book purchasing.
After the Christmas itself, it all got dull pretty much. I caved in to the awful book The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks (Do NOT Read!!!) for my english class. I researched some on my hopefully future college, Vanderbilt University, and made sure I got all my homework done. Then there was the upcoming New Years. I was a loner New Year’s Eve and New Years Day, but hey, I couldn’t complain, I was tired of people as it was. The rest of my time was spent napping mainly. Although I did get some real reading done, but stupid silly me forgot about the nook before christmas and now i got about 12 paperbacks I’ve yet to read, all about 300+ pages. This is gonna be one fun adventure to have!!!!!
(P.S. that Frankie Landau-Banks book is based on equality, female hormones, patriarchal society, and overall, FEMENISM. if that’s your cup of tea, go for it. it’s not that long, but its murder to get through if you ask me.)
