Seriously, this was the semester that just took a shit on my chest and didn't leave me breakfast in the morning. So much work and school and bullshit regarding both. I'm stoked that winter break is upon us (though I still have to do a final tomorrow morning).

So what are your winter plans? Any trips? Family visits?

I'm looking forward to a short trip to Arizona, and hopefully a week or so in San Francisco next month. Plenty of sleep and other things in between.

My plans involve hanging out with friends, playing games, having a boring Christmas day and possibly the few days surrounding it with my mum forcing me to go to an aunt's house three hours away from everyone...

Should be fun. ^^

Being home from college, my family getting an HD TV, that's about it.

Vulkar, something in your layout was messing with the tables so I had to get rid of it. Go double check your coding when you get a chance to see what needs fixing.

As for my holiday plans, I pretty much am done with them already. Went up to visit my grandma on Friday and came back yesterday. Other than that I'm going to the parent's house on Xmas Eve for tamales then bringing some to Ben at work... and I get to work on Xmas Day, joy!

I get to look forward to spending time with my dysfunctional family and fighting most of the week, all while not having a significant other to be happy with...

I hate the holidays. Bah humbug.

Sorry about that Erlara, Photobucket deleted my pictures, so I commented out my post header, but not my post footer. I'll fix it for real eventually, but for now you all can be deprived on my ancient layout, xD.

On topic:

Oh, I will be hanging out with a lot of friends I haven't seen in ages, if that counts as anything.

It's ok, just wanted to let you know so you could fix it. And I like your layout, ancient is cool... hell, I think I've had mine for nearly four years now.

Happy belated Solstice, y'all!

It's probably the first time in years that no family is traveling any great distances to be in Southern California for Christmas. Just going to be Brandon, my parents, some of my dad's clients and friends, and perhaps my grandmother if she's up for us picking her up and bringing her by.

So far I've been thoroughly enjoying having nothing to do except go hiking or sit and read. This past weekend was great, though. Knife and ax-throwing, a banquet, hanging with Stitch, brownies at the observatory, beignets, mojitos, Christmas lights and coffee, and hours of air hockey. Spent yesterday hiking to a waterfall, meditating, and then gorging on cheese bread for dinner. Mmmm...

Holiday plans?

Work. Work. And more work.

Although, I baked lots and lots today, because I can't afford gifts this year. So, a friend of mine came over, and he was my kitchen bitch for the day.

Otherwise, yeah...doesn't even feel like Christmas this year. Just like another day at most...and yet somehow, I like it. I'm not stressed this year. It's a bad year for everyone of my family and friends...and...with few exceptions, I like it. No one's at each other's throats or being really competitive and nasty. My sisters all brought home dinner for my friend and I and sat down and ate with us, and we all got along. It's just nice. **shrugs**

I came back from my friend's place to spend the day with my mother for her birthday. Well long story short, my dad was a total dick to her all day and didn't even really give her the time of day otherwise. Mom decided to get a divorce that evening. It really killed any hope for a holiday mood that I had and I might be homeless if my dad decides to ditch the house. Hurray!

Oh my god... I'm so sorry. Hope things work out and your dad starts treating your mom better.


As fate would have it, we may not be able to go to Arizona this weekend afterall. We'll see. Don't want to jinx it.

Where all have you been running around at Rogue? Sounds fun.

I've been zipping about between work and finishing up last minute shopping. I probably spent more than I should but I can use the remaining bits of my financial aid money to help cover rent for next month, plus I get paid again next week. Most people got cheapy things like brownies or candy canes, but family actually got presents, with Ben's being most expensive (new speakers). Going over to my folks tonight for gift exchange since I had to work on the Solstice, but hey, free tamales right? Also stopping by WhiteRose's house to drop off her and Oni's gift since I know they got us something.

Still trying to find out if anyone is doing anything for New Year's Eve. The gaming group was trying to convince us to do something but after what they did to our place last night they will be lucky if we continue to host gaming, let alone a New Year's thing. You know of anything Rogue? I feel so out of the loop.

I haven't really heard of anything going on for New Year's, but then again I've been buried under the CSUF rock(slide) for the past year. I mean, I still see Pat and Christina when I can (and Lee whenever he or I can visit), but otherwise I hear nothing unless I get invited to a party at Rosy's or something.

If anyone's got anything going on, it's probably Pat. Otherwise, Brandon and I end up going to Marty and Becky's.

But in answer to the first question, mostly just finding new places to hike. Bailey's Canyon was that last one on Monday that had a waterfall. Brandon and I just sat and listened to the crickets and birds, the trickling water, the occasionally rock falling and us breathing. It was one of those places where time and the rest of the world just fall away as you sit there.

I think you are one of the few people that still has contact with Pat at all, he seems to have cut all contact with the rest of us.

Bailey's Canyon eh? Sounds neat. We went hiking up at the east fork of the San Gabriel River once, it was pretty fun... saw lots of people panning for gold.

Yeah, Pat comes to Voidcrush shows and we hang out when we can. His grandmother just passed away.

The last time we hung out, he, Christina, her roommates, Brandon and I were watching bad porn and commenting on it. "Porn Wars" sounds like it's gonna be good, but damn... just... damn. Had to watch the sex scenes on fast forward just to get back to the story. "Pirates" has spoiled our generation.

Anyway, Merry Christmas, everyone!

Hmm, panning for gold. I do want to try mining for tourmaline some time.

Yup, happy holidays folks.

Scored a new slim PS3 from my parents/grandma (though this was last weekend, slow update!)... other than that, just got a few random necessities. At my age though I can't help but not feel disappointed at all though... any free thing is free, can't argue that! But yeah, still easy to tell the economy is hitting lots of families. Hope 2010 picks things up.

My present haul was relatively small this year. Mostly scarves and gloves and a little bit of money. Not surprised, since last year both Brandon's and my family started this whole "We shouldn't feel pressured to give anyone anything, especially during this depression" agreement not to give anything. The scarves were immediately put to use leaving for Arizona yesterday, as it's practically freezing and we had a carload of people.

I'm quite surprised our car made it actually. A couple days ago, while heading out for a hike, there was a rockslide while trying to avoid running over a rock with the tire, Brandon swerved, and the underside of the car took the hit. We immediately pulled off and noticed the sure and steady leak from the gas tank. Luckily a Triple-A tow truck was at the same pull-off and he patched our tank and towed us home. Seemed after we patched the tank ourselves, a series of other things went wrong where the car just didn't want to start for a day and then wouldn't idle. This all after having to replace the master and slave cylinders late last week.

Well, life would be boring, I guess, without these problems cropping up. Still shocked we made it the 400 miles. When we got out, the car started making a weird noise and leaking what looked like coolant. Huzzah.

Who had a white Christmas?

We actually got like 8-10 inches from later Christmas Eve day and onward, it just kept going and it was so windy almost looked like there was a blizzard, lol. And yeah that's the night I went to see Avatar, it was still worth it!

I remember when snow was awesome as a kid though ... now with a full time job and a car, it's the biggest pain in the ass ever.
