Well, another Christmas is done with, and I can go back to not seeing my family and doing school or whatever. I like Christmas, I really don't care what it is you believe or don't believe happened on Christmas Day, cause really it is up for discussion, but I won't get into a theological discussion. I think Christmas is basically nice, just because people are usually in a good mood, you can spend some quality time with your family and well you get presents (even though that’s not what its about). I think this year I was in a really Christmassy mood, mostly because I've been working Christmas parties for the past month, and it just pumped me up more for the festivities. My families tradition is, go to church, come home and celebrate my Dad's birthday (on the 24th), have some drinks and be merry, then we go to bed and wake up on Christmas. On Christmas, we usually get up around 10(its gotten later as we've gotten older obviously). We really take our time opening presents, have an awesome breakfast, spend the afternoon hangin out, then have supper and relax and play games as a family. With my Dad living in Regina 5/7 of the week, and the business of Ty's football/hockey/school as well as mine, our family is very seldom together as a family. I really enjoyed spending the time with them, and remembered how funny we are when we get together as a family.
This Christmas was extra merry because I got the best present ever...my family all pitched in a bought me an IPOD! Honestly I've been drooling over them since they came out, and even more so after seeing the abundance of them on campus (I think I counted over 20 in my art history class once...that’s 20% of the class!). I begged and pleaded, and after all the presents were opened I again was left longing. But then, after supper and a while (about 830) my dad said, oh we forgot a few presents under the tree...there was one for my Brother and my grandma...then there was one more...and it was an IPOD. I couldn't believe it.
But yeah, I work at Cosmo driving on the 28th-31st, and hopefully not at the Ramada, and then its back to school. Hoping to get some good partyin and relaxin in there before school starts again. At least I'll have good music playin all the time, and in ridiculous quantities all through it.
‘Til Next Time....
