The Holidays!

Today was a half-day, being the last day before winter break (!), and I can honestly say we did not do a single academic thing in any class. In my chemistry class, there were only four of us (and Lauren!) and Chem Teacher brought in his daughter, who's about three/four years old, and a generally good time was had by all.

My dad and I are setting up the Christmas tree--pssht, no, it's not two days before Christmas. Oh, and it's two days before Christmas! It's Christmas Eve Eve! I exchanged presents with people! Tegan got me a lovely scarf, Chelsea got me little cat figurines, Jennifer gave me a cupcake, and Shari gave me a delightful blanket :D Oh, and on Wednesday, Joy made me a journal (!), and Maia got me a book--The Essential Guide to Getting Your Book Published. I also got gifts for all of them, of course!

I love getting gifts for people. Later tonight I'll be going to the mall to get gifts for my parents, who I've yet to buy anything for.

Guys, guys, guys. February is in less than two months! I've been looking for a dress for the next Model UN conference, and I think this one would work well, with a business jacket and other accouterments. What do you think? I also kind of like this one, though it's more expensive. Unfortunately, not many stores cater to business-atire-seeking teenagers, so I haven't been able to find anything really perfect.

I've become midlly obsessed with Scrabble. I hate it, really, but then I started playing with Kim on Facebook and now I can't stop.

Now that I'm blogging, I realize how much I forget about things that happen throughout the week. I keep meaning to, but either I don't have time or I don't feel like it. I think, when this is done, I'll comment! Hurray!

Oh, well, I think this is done, actually. MERRY CHRISTMAS!


  1. You had school up until today!? That's ridiculous! I love it: "a generally good time was had by all."

    Gifts are nice. You have good friends. Besides the person who gave you a cupcake. Doesn't Jennifer know that won't last and therefore will be forgotten? (I am kidding, of course. Cupcakes are the best.)

    Goodness, the model on the second dress is a twig! (I was obviously distracted by that to get a good look at the dress itself. brb.) Okay, well, that's pretty, but I think I like the first one better.

    Good luck with everything, my friend.

    Merry Christmas (and a Happy New Year)!


    I had a half day on Friday too. It sucked and we did nothing.

    I like the second dress better personally, even though it is more expensive you could wear it pretty versatile-y... that's totally a real word.
