Home for Christmas

I went to Bower Place mall in Red Deer....I worked there for a year, and I never realized how big Edmonton malls are in comparison. (That sounds so ditzy...) It was surreal...its been so long since I've been there...it was like being in a different country in a way...by the way, the "Avril Lavigne/Ashlee Simpson" look is really really BIG there.

Its only 5 days until Christmas, but I really don't feel like it's Christmas...I have my shopping done, presents wrapped, the tree is decorated, the Cup is christmas busy, christmas music is everywhere...yet it doesn't really feel Christmasy to me.
Oh well...its nice to be at home.



It feels so great to be done the semester....it's been a long haul...
I just checked my marks, and I got a B in my American literature class!!!! (That was the class with the scary prof, who I thought was going to fail me because I didn't agree with her...but obviously not!) It's such an exhilarating feeling to do okay in a class that you were sure you would fail...
I can't wait to go home for Christmas, but the problem with going home means that I'm not going to want to return to Edmonton and work after....oh well..
I don't have much else to say...so i'm gonna go read.


Christmas Music Burnout

I have been trying to make another Christmas CD for the Cup, because there are only about 4 or 5 good discs there, and it makes me crazy listening to those five over the period of several hours...however...there are only so many songs out there, and there are only so many different ways to sing Silent Night...
The recording industry seems to think that no one will be able to tell if a song is a Christmas one unless they put the sound of bells in the background. Will the madness ever end???
Oh well. Only two weeks until Christmas...

I Think I Have the BrainRot...

I'm supposed to be writing an excessively long literary review on anorexia nervosa for my medical anthropology class, complete with an annotated bibliography...due tuesday...however, I have a final on tuesday as well, so I have to have the paper finished by Monday so that I can study for the final. (Hooray for Faulknerian sentences!!) I haven't started it yet...in fact, I haven't even got all my sources together yet...and now I am writing a post...Hooray for procrastination!! I can't wait for this semester to be over...I hope that next semester doesn't suck mooseballs...My classes appear to be potentially interesting, so we shall see.

I'm so proud of myself! I have over half of my Christmas shopping done!! I think that it is a great feeling to have all my shopping done...I'll have to wait until after the 7th to finish though, because by then, I will be done school for the semester!! It is snowing out...I have mixed feelings about that, because it never feels like Christmas without snow, but it was so WARM!!! Oh well...so it goes. I must say that I am getting sick of Christmas music though...we aren't allowed to play anything BUT at the Cup, and there are only so many songs available...so yeah...

I'm addicted to online shopping. Especially sephora and amazon...they are so great...and it actually is a good thing in terms of purchasing because I have to really decide whether or not I want something before ordering, plus I can get stuff that is hard-to-find or inaccessible for me...I highly recommend it...if you have a small amount of willpower, that is. I just bought the new Rammstein album, Reise, Reise. I love them!! There's something about a bunch of dorky guys singing in german...

Wow...I'm really rambling about nothing now...shows how much I DON'T want to work on that stupid paper....However... I think my OVID session is gonna time-out soon, so gotta get back to it...
