And I have next Monday-Thursday off. The big part about this is the fact that I have Christmas eve, and Christmas off, which hasn't happened in the last 2 years (when I started :P ). It was fun getting gifts for the family, not knowing what any of them wanted. Needless to say, I am looking forward to Christmas eve; Our family tradition involves eating crackers with a cheeseball, shrimp and cocktail sauce, and sometimes bread and spinach dip. This year, I decided to get Sparkling grape juice, as it has been several years since I have had it. And then we go to bed, and it should be obvious what we do christmas morning (hint: think "bottom of the christmas tree")
I have gotten some extra money, due to my other job I have been doing. I was thinking of getting a DVR, as I currently don't have one, and was looking at the Magnavox HDD DVR. My family has cable, but no cable box, so I am hoping this will work. (I don't want a monthly subscription, which is a big reason why I am considering this.
I also thought about getting the Hauppauge HD PVR 2. For this though, I only have one main use, and that is recording movies I buy from iTunes, so I can have them on my computer, to play through Windows Media Player. (iTunes doesn't seem to work well when playing videos.)
I've been on break for a week now, have a month left til I go back to college. So far, break has been great. I have been talking to one of my new friends from college over break. The last couple nights we have been having 2 or 3 hour conversations.
And of course, I can try to tell myself I can make it through college without worrying about relationships or anything; but I'm not that lucky. My friend (not the one above) has actually been laughing at me for liking a girl with the same name as me.
