Winter Break 2008
« on: November 18, 2008, 10:48:11 pm »
In only a matter of weeks, schools will let out for winter break. That's right people, winter break is almost here... we just need to survive finals and final projects for school first.
But once school gets out and you don't have to worry about homework or tests, what will you all be doing? Or at least, what do you WANT to do?

I hope to have made a few friends before winter break, so I'd like to hang out with new friends. Other than that, I'd like to grab a mug of hot cocoa, sit down on my bed, and play Kingdom Hearts 2.

I think it's safe to say that ALL of us need money. I know most people here need money for their cosplays, myself included. I know need to start saving up money so I have some spending money for Kumoricon. Hell, last year I spent $160 in just two days (I think we all know how easy that can be). And I know I need a $!#+ load of money to get an electric guitar, and then a few years to practice before I can do my ultimate cosplay.

I'm looking for a job, but there have been a lot of layoffs in my hometown recently, so I'll be lucky if I get one.

I'm also going to work on my and my brother's semi-secret cosplays. :3  YAY!

What am I going to do?
Catch up on my 123484987+ hours that I should have been sleeping.
Afterward, I want to spend the money that I have been saving for Christmas gifts, then chill with friends, eat delicious food, and celebrate my 20th birthday by finally getting my tattoo.
I'm crossing my fingers for mewcon at this point. >,<

I don't really have plans, I'll likely work holidays for extra monies.  Usually don't join in gift giving.  People expect gifts at christmas, it is more meaningful to give gifts randomly when not expected.

I'll be in California, playing .hack and cheering for high-speed internet.  :) I'll also hang out with my friends there and on Christmas eat a 12-course meal. Then we'll open presents and I will hopefully have a good night that night.

Otherwise, it really won't be fun.

I meant that if Christmas dinner didn't go as planned, it probably would turn out high-drama.

If the Holiday Season was an Olympic sport, I would win the gold medal.

I will be spending mine making a GLORIOUS load of delicious goodies and working ONLY ONE JOB for 40 hours a week rather than working 3 jobs for 40 hours a week (or I'll be working 2 jobs for 52 hours a week, haha. I'm a workaholic)! I'M SO EXCITED!

Also, I want to hang out with folks~

I WISH I was a workaholic, I'd be able to do so much better in school. Unfortunalty, I'm a procrastinator instead. But that's cool you'll only have to work ONE job.

Eh, being a workaholic is good in theory but not so much in practice. I'm going 5am-1am most days of continuous gym/work/school/work/study/gym/housework and it all kinds of sucks!

I'm soooo looking forward to the holidays! Quitting my third job~!!

Geez, I feel sorry for you guys who have tests after the break. :(

The only final I'm really worried about is math.  Bleh, I hate that class.  But according to the formula the professor gave us, if I keep doing as well as I have been, I'll get a B or a C...  Not great, but passing.  I'd absolutely HATE to have to re-take this class.

GRAH.  My professors in my first two classes next Wednesday canceled class, but then my other two profs didn't.  One even assigned a midterm!  Grr.

But good news, I have an interview with UPS on Friday. :D  If all goes well, I might be a driver's helper over Winter Break, which would be AWESOME.  My friend has done it for the past two/three years, and he says it's a lot of fun.
