okay, so i will start with thanksgiving.
my thanksgiving break was so good. on wednesday my mom came up, and we cooked at my aunt's house and got ready for thursday. i also got to go on a cousin date with katie, and we saw new moon! i defintely liked it better than twilight for several reasons, but i will spare you the details. on thursday, my dad and brothers came up, and we all had thanksgiving at my aunt and uncle's house in los osos. there were about 30 of us, which was crazy, but it was so nice to see all my extended family who i haven't seen in a while. on friday, paul and i went shopping, which is our way of bonding [yes, it's probably weird that my brother likes shopping as much as i do, but hey, he's family so i have to like him]. it was nice to catch up with him, and he bought me lunch at the oh-so-classy jack in the box. on friday night, we went to my aunt's house and played mexican train and apples to apples, which resulted in a lot of laughter, and me feeling more bonded to my extended family than i have in a while, which was really cool. on saturday, my family left, so i just decorated the apartment for christmas with stephanie and hung out, which was nice.
which brings me to dead week.
i don't have anything really due this week, but i have a lot of things due finals week that i should probably get started on. stephanie and i are definitely feeling the stress, but i am determined to not let it get to me. so this week will definitely include studying, but more importantly, i will be taking time out to spend with jesus. he's really the only one who can get me through my four papers and three finals.
now for the boy.
or, more specifically, the boyfriend. i have one. and his name is james and he is amazing. everyone who reads this already knows about him, but i just figured he was worth mentioning again. he has really been showing me what a man of God looks like, and i am very blessed by him. he is just one of the many people in my life i am thankful for this thanksgiving.
well, it is time for me to stop procrastinating and actually get some work done tonight!
