- marichristmas assessment
- December 25th, 2008
So, as some of you might know, this is my first Christmas away from home. I figured it had to happen at some point or another. The main reasons for this was my need to pay for school books (I spent another $200 for next semester), the fact that airline prices will probably never be less than $300 ever again, the discouragement of the incessant snowfall, and the realization that holidays spent at home are as boring as watching paint dry.
So, for my overall assessment, I must say...
marichristmas is pretty fucking sweet.
I got to sleep in this morning, and didn't have to rush to go to the family's house. I didn't have to feel awkward opening up presents or giving presents. I actually *ate* breakfast (see first reason). I mean, breakfast pretty much consisted of cookies and tea, but it was still pretty sweet. I got to clean my home, which was previously called The Ruins of Finals Hell. I have the History of Howard on an endless loop. Everything is so quiet and peaceful. I got to play games and sleep a little more. It was like any other day that I would be on vacation, except minus the frustration and stress of being at home. My only obligation for today was to call my parents, and that was done first thing in the morning, and then, no more having to worry about it. I made cheese tortellini for dinner, and it was awesome.
Seriously, this is probably the best day ever.
Oftentimes, people feel bad for others for not being able to spend time with their families. But really, having days where you are completely unhindered by work or school are just brilliant, as this entire past week has been. I look forward to having the same sorts of days for the rest of my vacation.
And now, I will play more Castlevania on the shiny new PSP that I bought for myself.
Merry Catmas! <3
