My principal was there and she was very impressed with my work ethic.
I ended up spending a generous portion of my money on Christmas gifts for other people, but I like seeing people’s face’s light up when they open gifts, so I’m kind of glad that I’m back where I started: broke.
Well, not completely broke….

I liked the fact that our exchange was small and intimate because we were all able to pick out the perfect gifts for each other.
On another note, I still can’t believe that Christmas is only a few days away. The weather has been so sporadic in Texas that it makes it hard to even think that it’s Christmastime. Not to mention there’s been a lot of drama surrounding a nativity scene in a town nearby mine and it’s honestly really stupid. Some people in Wisconsin or something want them to remove the scene from the court house lawn due to the fact that it melds church and state.
As someone who is passively religious, I could care less if it was a Menorah, Nativity Scene, or a reindeer taking a huge crap on the lawn. Personally I find all holiday decorations beautiful and I think it’s pointless to throw such a big fit over something so little. I understand we have a freedom of religion clause in our US constitution, but instead of eliminating the representation of a certain religion I think we should foster equal representation. Also, Texas (and anywhere south of the Mason Dixon line) is going to be SUPER Christian. There’s no getting around it. I don’t know.
I guess I should step down off my soapbox and retire to bed.
Did I mention that I’m sick? I managed to stay healthy while at school, but as soon as I get home I end up catching something from my little brother (who has pneumonia). Needless to say I’ll be taking a hefty dose of Nyquil and be sleeping with the Vicks humidifier on tonight.

No, but for realz. Almost every time I managed to find a bit of spare time to blog I ended up having something come up.
Things I have wanted to blog about:
-My second experience giving blood
-Art world BS
-MY BIRTHDAY. (I’m legal y’all!)
Reasons why I haven’t been able to blog:
-I’ve been volunteering at various Christmas things for the past few weekends
-Last minute cram sessions for tests
-My dad needed me to take screenshots of 550 (yes FIVE HUNDRED FIFTY) pages and then crop them and email them to him in increments of 50
-I’ve been busy in the kitchen making Christmas goodies
And I so missed being able to write about my day and vent everything that I’ve been bottling up for the past MONTH. So, to combat this awful crime of an unwanted hiatus I am scheduling 30 minutes of blog time. Every day. Of course, this is easier said than done so we’ll see how it goes.
I MISSED BLOGGING.
