Winter break starts in two more weeks for me. Just....two.....more.....
And the only thing standing between me and home sweet home is an army of final examinations and essay due dates. Damn.
I haven't really thought about christmas, sadly enough. Maybe it's because they keep us busy, but that's only part of it. Frankly I'm starting to think I've become a little disenchanted with it. I'd have to say the part I'm most looking forward to is the reunion of The Herd, the amazing and stunningly attractive band of heroes that are my friends. College scattered our little fellowship literally across the country, from California, to Florida, to frigid Vermont, and I haven't seen some of them since we parted ways this past summer. This reuniting will be nothing short of legendary.
Something I've noticed over the past few years, as far as presents and wish-lists are concerned: I don't really know what I want anymore. I'm not sure if this is a common trend as people graduate from begging for video games and expensive name-brand clothes, or if I became self-actualized or something overnight, but I've come up clueless every year when my mom says "All your aunts and uncles are asking me, what do you want for christmas?"
I just want to mail them a plain white envelope with an enclosed "IDK N00BZ0R!!!"
But really, it's kind of sad. I asked for a Mossberg now that I've thankfully reached the golden age of legal firearm ownership, but both of my parents are in the medical profession, and pretty much despise guns and anything to do with them. I tell anyone that asks that I'm the adopted child of Lara Croft and Sam Fisher.
But I mean really, what horrible luck. My philosophy major friend gets a shotgun thrown at him by his uncle as a gift for no real reason, and the Criminal Justice major at a military college gets the anti-gun family. 53R10U5LY, 17'5 R3411Y 64Y. 50 64Y I'V3 R350R73D 2 1337 5P34K.
Umm ya.....Merry Christmas!
((I would like to blame any randomness/1337-speak on the daunting prospect of aforementioned exams starting TOMORROW. Feliz Navidad.))
