now that christmas is over, i feel more comfortable typing this post. i’m not trying to be a big fat meanie or anything of the sort, but i think it’s pretty irritating when everyone thinks christmas is just about the gifts. christmas is more than that. it’s about spending time with your beloved family and friends and creating lots of happy memories together. i admit that as i got older, christmas started to change. it became less exciting and fun. the idea of the annual family dinners with grandparents, aunts and uncles, and all my cousins started to become an option, and eventually the idea disappeared altogether. thanksgiving and new years as well. heck, i don’t remember the last time i set up a christmas tree. but as much as i had hoped this year would be any different, it was not.
and it’s true, who doesn’t love recieving gifts? i look at a messily wrapped package and i smile as i think, “aw, this person tried their best to wrap”. i’m not an excellent wrapper myself and i get frustrated when it comes out all wrinkled or crooked but despite it not looking perfect, it’s the effort the person put into these little gifts that matter, right? and so you didn’t get exactly what you want. you didn’t get that stupid iphone you so badly wanted or a stupid vehicle you have been begging to drive for weeks. so what? christmas isn’t an excuse for all you spoiled idiots to get exactly what you wanted. you’re lucky to get something at all. some people don’t have phones, others use their two legs for transportation and there you are begging for a new technological device so you can take more hd pictures or drive a stupid car that you’re probably going to scratch on the curb anyway. you want those things? earn it. the whole “fuck-i-hate-my-parents-because-they-didn’t-get-me-what-i-wanted” thing is stupid. why do i live on this planet?
it was 1.5 week before christmas when this girl i don’t really like walks up to me and told me, “oh, i got your something for christmas”. so i smiled at her and said thanks. but if you know this girl like i do, you’d know that she tells you beforehand to guilt trip you into getting her a gift too. the past three years have been exactly the same. and if it played out that she got you something and you didn’t get her anything .. well, there goes the shit talking. i don’t think it’s all about the receiving, but more about the giving. you’re giving someone something because you want to. and it’s pretty inappropirate to go around telling people that she looks around her house and finds items she doesn’t like that still looks new and wraps them up as presents. sorry, i disapprove. i mean, i don’t want a cup you used once. it’s pretty gross. and just to be frank, if you’re going to do that, how about keeping it on the down low? well, i didn’t get her anything because i’m broke from food, i don’t like her, and i talk to her like once every month. i think i’m getting off topic but yeah, simply put, i don’t think it’s all about the gifts. i gave a lot away to people i want to give to, and even if i didn’t get anything in return, i don’t have a problem with it o_o
oh, and that girl ended up not giving me anything because she found out i didn’t get her anything. she gave me the cold shoulder friday morning instead ;)

loads of fun, especially today :) on thursday, we had a late start because of the reverse pep rally and most people took the opportunity to sleep in. mostly seniors, i think. i intended to sleep in but i ended up going to mcD with a friend to eat breakfast. only i’m not really a big breakfast person so i got orange juice and that’s about it. i was also so smart to not wear a jacket, so it was really cold. i ran into lots of keppelettes there :0 went to school and school went by pretty darn slow. so sick of it. nothing special happened .. and i also brought teacher/ counselors’ gifts to stick into my locker because i thought i’d have too much to carry the next day. and thank goodness i did, because i had way too much to carry today. i stuck them in my locker :) had about 10+ faculty in all since i included the ones that helped me out with recommendations and other miscellaneous out-of-class activities. and it feels really good because i’m showing my gratitude and actually taking time to put everything together, write a card (most turn out pretty funny), and throw some wrapping paper on. after school on thursday, i went to watch the calculus airband with friends :) i noticed something that really irked me because it’s the same friend that make it so obvious that she favors another friend more. the performance itself was very entertaining.
i spent the whole night finishing last minute wrappings and picking up gifts that i wasn’t able to get the night before. luckily, i knew exactly what i wanted to get. it’s pretty hard thinking of what to get for some people every year, no matter how early you start. plus my mother got mad at me and she refused to help me out with the wrapping which turns out to be a big problem because i suck at wrapping :( and the rest of the school day dragged on forever even when it’s a minimum day because there’s no lunch and each class is barely any shorter. i miss my freshman days when we get out at 11 on minimum days. after school, we went to whitney’s house and she made us lunch :) it was super duper yummy and i was so full. yummy pasta while watching harry potter ! :0 i can’t believe regina has never read / watched harry potter so she should borrow mine or whitney’s dvd’s and watch them over break :) we got boba at tea brick’s and everyone went home while i went to michelle’s house to meet her dog. hehe, he is all hyper when he seems me :) her sister came home and the three of us hung till i left around 6 :) looked through old picture albums, played wii, talked, played tag, play with her dog, sad attempt of yoga, etc. it was fun reunion time.
today is a good start of the winter break i have been waiting forever for.
