Hmm...haven't updated in a while. Christmas was good. I got some wonderful presents, got to see family, and my dad loved his guitar. We played a lot together, trying to do some duet stuff, it was awesome. Around the end of break Mandi came down to visit, which was a lot of fun. I love Mandi :)
Semester's been ok so far. Classes seem good, but that might change with the first test so we'll see. I've also learned some more songs on guitar. So much to say, but don't really feel like typing it, so I think I'll just leave it at that.

Well, this day did a complete turn-around. Started really crappy, then got shittier, then got better and better. Started off at 3am when I was oh-so-pleasantly awakened by rustling and scraping sounds in my room. My door was closed, so I know it wasn't the dog, and of course my first thought is that someone is in my room which scares the hell out of me. Once my mind cleared I realized that there was a mouse in my room. Just great. It got closer to my head so I started flailing and making noise in my bed to scare it away, which worked. Still, I was a little tense considering a mouse was coming close to walking on my head. Woke up a little late, went downstairs, and set up our new Airport after breakfast. Worked beautifully except for my computer. For some reason when I typed the password for the network, it kept telling me that it was the wrong password. Then I got really upset when my computer still wouldn't read any CDs that I put in. I went online and found out some troubleshooting things to do, which I tried, and they didn't work. Then I called Apple, and was told that 1) they can't talk to me unless I give them $50 for 10 days of troubleshooting service, and that 2) it is probably a hardware problem that will cost about $610. Needless to say, I was a little upset. There was also more tension around the house because there was a lot to do in a little amount of time. Helped clean and set up the Dickens village, then the day got really happy. Dad and I started making some pyrohy, which ended up being all four of us doing it since we needed Dad to roll and cut the dough, me to make the potato into balls, Mom to pinch the edges, and Babbi to tell us what to do. We made about 60 or so, and ate 2 dozen for dinner. Oh my god, they were so good. I ate about 6, which I haven't done in years. Then I talked to Brit and Kathy, which always makes me happy, and wrapped a lot of gifts. While I was wrapping, it started snowing, which was great. By this point I was really happy, despite the whole computer thing. And then, just about 15 minutes ago, I decided to restart the Airport and try to change the password, which I did, and now I have wireless! Since luck was with me I decided to try and pop a CD in, and it worked!! I am so happy, it's unbelievable, considering how crappy I felt earlier. There's still a mouse in my room, but Dad put down a trap, so hopefully he'll be dead soon (sorry, no offense, but you stepped over the border when you went in my room).
Current Music: watching "Crossing Jordan"
Well, about a week into winter break. It's been nice, a little boring due to the fact that all of my friends here are still in school, but still nice. I've been able to relax and get most of my Christmas stuff done. Today I went on a massive shopping trip with my parents. First we drove downtown, walked around to Wannamaker's to see the lights which I hadn't seen in years, then shopped there for a bedcoat for Babbi. Then we walked around Broad Street, the Bellevue shops, then over to Walnut Street and Rittenhouse Square for more walking. Mom got hungry so we went to lunch at Rouge and then to Barnes & Nobles. Got a new book ("Mayada: Daughter of Iraq") which looks interesting...based on the first 5 pages at least. After all that, we headed back to Liberty Place, did some more browsing on the way to our car, and then headed out to King of Prussia. Again, did more shopping. We got an Airport for our house to get wireless internet, which is cool. I'll probably try setting that up tomorrow. After the mall we stopped at Bonefish Grill in Willow Grove where we waited an insane amount of time for our table. Wasn't too bad though because it gave me more time to look at the cute bartender ;)
Now just hanging out, finally watching the last episode of Sex & the City. I like it, I knew how it ended since I read about it last year but never actually saw it.
Time to talk to Mandi!!! And then I'm going to visit Kathy and Brit on Monday, so I won't be lonely anymore!

You're chocolate. You're the old soul type, people
feel that they have known you their entire
life. Many often open up to you for they view
you as thoughtful and trustworthy. Although
people trust you, you have a hard time trusting
them. You prefer to keep your feelings bottled
up inside, or display them very quietly. It is
alright to open up every once in a while.

|» Perfect Ending...|
Such a perfect ending to a stressful week........all of the stress of which culminated today. Had my Money & Banking presentation, which went well until I choked on the question she asked me. Looked like an idiot for several minutes until I finally got the answer. Then a rapid rush downtown for my Geology lab. It's always fun looking at rocks in the dark when it's freezing outside. Then I had to run (literally) back to campus for my voice final, when I nearly got hit by a car. I was crossing legally and all nice when some guy made a rapid left turn and nearly got me all over his fender. He didn't even see me until I jumped out of the way. He was freaked out, kept asking if I was ok. I was pissed for 5 minutes, then I completely broke down. It seriously took everything in me to keep from just sitting on the sidewalk sobbing. I know it's a little stupid (he didn't hit me), but it still scared the pure hell out of me. Was still able to get to my voice final on time. Did the duet fairly well, then waited for two hours before doing my second song. That one I completely screwed up. I messed up the words twice, took my breath in all the wrong places, then kept running out of breath since I was still shaky from the car thing and now was upset about the song, my throat was tight, and was all closed over. It was horrible.|
But now it's over, I can relax and I'll be home in about a week......just have to keep thinking that.....
