Mini mandarins oranges


Lovely music


Freshly fallen snow



It’s such a wonderful day.  I just had my third exam which means I’m over half way there to the holidays.  Brandon is in the spare room wrapping my presents (came home a wee bit early hehe), and he’s going on about how lovely they and how excited he is for me to open them.  I almost cried at this thoughtfulness especially when he brought me mandarin oranges as an “early” present.  It’s been a wonderful day and I don’t think I could ask for a better one.  I’m immensely blessed with a wonderful boyfriend who loves me as much as he does.  Parents who have provided for me and love me, a cheeky brother who is adorable and fun.  I’m also blessed to be able to get an education that very few in the world are able to.  I complain about it, but I love every moment of it (well minus writing essays XD).  I have a roof over my head and I have lovely things around me.  I think that this year has been lovely and just full to the brim of blessings.

What are you thankful for this year?

I really should be studying.  I am doing a good job thus far.  But all that enlightenment and Hegellian Dialectics just bore me (well that’s a lie, I do love me some Hegel).  However, I’m just not in the mood to study.  I know I know, how horrible.  But I’m enjoying the time alone this afternoon.  I’ve got some wonderful music on in the background and it’s snowing outside.  I’ll have some tea on soon and enjoy its warmth when I return to my textbooks and the history of Expansionist Europe.

Time has been going by so fast lately.  It’s actually kind of scary because I increasingly feel like I can’t catch up to it.  Yet, at the same time, it’s not so bad, because I’m done with my essays already and soon I’ll be done with exams, hence the title of this blog.  Christmas is slowly creeping up and with that lovely turkey dinners and christmas smells.  I almost want to get a candle just to make my apartment smell like christmas when i’m not cooking christmas related goodies.  Mmmm.

Winter coats.  I FINALLY got a nice fashionable wonderfully warm winter coat.  It’s blue, and felt and has a double row of buttons and i love it.  I took so pictures tonight so in the next couple days I’ll try to get them up.  But I absolutely love it.  I’ve worn it every day so far.  Haha.

Also, in other celebratory news, I’m done my classes for school.  I have a wonderful two – three weeks ahead where once I’m done exams I can relax and enjoy life and it shall be swell.  I cannot wait for christmas and I have such lovely plans laid for the boy.  Mmm.  I love the season.  I love the meaning it holds, the feeling of it all.  Everyone just SEEMS happier and it’s just a nicer place to live in.  The best part though is getting presents for people and wrapping them up.  I’ve put two under our tree and I just love looking at them and looking forward to when they’ll be opened by the people they’re intended for.  It shall be grand.

What are your christmas plans?  Is it a big deal for you?  Or do you treat it like any other day?

Almost There

So I can tell that I’m way too excited to go home (not that one can be too excited to go home).  But I’m not watching how I talk and I’ve been mixing up sentences left right and centre.  I’ve also NOT been paying as astute attention as one should to facebook and totally replied to a message as if i was the only one that got it.  Yeah I felt lame haha.

It’s really weird these last few days at work.  I’m still giving it my best, but my managers don’t seem to care if I do manage to hear codes and other such items that previously were blocked from my hearing.  And i really don’t feel like getting close to people who are new now.  I’m leaving in a couple days and will never see most of them again so I’m not going to invest time into friendships.  Rather selfish, I know, however is rather logical from the point of usefulness.  I’m seriously gonna miss my work though.  It’s been rather fun this summer and I learned a lot both of myself and about customer service and officey things that are HOPEFULLLY going to prove useful ONE day.  I’m still holding my fingers crossed on that point ;).

But i’m almost ready to go home.  All my books and left over cans of food and electronics are nicely packed away in boxes waiting for the day that my dad will bring them home to me.  I can only bring two suitcases so my xbox and monitor and other such things will have to wait.  Twill prolly be a good thing what with school starting and all XD.  It’s not like I need MORE distraction than I already possess.

“Your love can make these things better.”

I think life is starting to even out. I was just listening to a Jars of Clay song and I’m encouraged to just keep swimming. I may have a billion things to do for school, financial problems, etc. But the love of family, friends, God can help encourage us and give us the oomph we need.

I made tortillas again last night and I added a little bit more of water to it and mixed the oil in with the water and they turned out so much better than the last ones. They tasted the same, but they were softer and easier to handle. I also cooked them for a little less time and I think that that had a lot to do with it. And it only took an hour to make them instead of three like the first time I made them ^_^

I think this month will be better than January was. I am excited for the possibilities and new experiences that wait as of yet. The days just slide together and everything has remained in a positive type of stasis 🙂

Good morning.  Another week, and another month.  I’m glad it’s February.  January seemed to drag and drag and drag.  I’m really hoping that this month is better, that there are more possibilities and so on for Brandon and I.  One thing though about February, is that March is just that much closer, and that spring is only a couple months away.  Oh the excitement and dreams of green grass!

I should really be reading one of my textbooks for the classes I have today.  But I just don’t quite feel like it yet.  It’s drab and boring as it is a 100 level course.  I’ve already learnt pretty much everything in other classes that we cover in this.  However, the paper is only three-four pages.  I don’t know if that will be a blessing or a curse.  I’m used to eight pages, wherein I can properly formulate a real paper with an intro, middle and conclusion.  I just don’t see how possible that is with three pages.  I’ll have to suck it up though.  At least it means less writing.  It’s funny though hearing all the first years complain about the course.  It’s probably the easiest course they’ll have ALL semester long or even during all four of their years of University.  But the little chillins will learn eventually.  All in good time.

Anyway, I need to start my day.  I’ve already had breakfast (toast and a carnation mix drink).  But school calls my name sadly.  My second class is my Anthropology of Egyptian History course for which I love.  So all in all, not a bad day.

Have a great monday 🙂

If it weren’t for that new app I got for my mac I think I wouldn’t get any work done at all.  I’m just not in the mood to study tonight.  And I know that I really don’t have to.  I was the only one in the tutorial who was up to date on their readings.  Freshmen annoy me in the sense that they complain SOOOO much.  Apparently our 3-4 page paper is so hard.  And they don’t understand context hence why they’re complaining about the fact that we’re reading Mary Shelley’s Frankenstine in a History course.  I can’t wait till they are all growed up and are writing ten page papers on an average basis.
