Almost done! vent vent vent

Good god this has been the longest term of my life. Crashing my motorcycle a week before class started, having the flu for 5 weeks, being diagnosed with severe allergies and some supposed hereditary inflammation disorder, physical therapy, mental therapy, and lots and lots of pills. Gross. It's only been four months! I'm gonna admit that I'm ready to tie a noose. I finished my finals on Monday, a test and a presentation and did pretty well. I just discovered that my GPA is 3.41 (so far) and... nursing school is tough in addition to all that other crap so, cheers for me.

I've been working like a mad woman the past two weeks to cover medical stuff and christmas stuff. I am looking forward to holidays. It's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel because I have to be at work for another 9 hours tomorrow before I get to take an official break. I'm sure the holidays will be great. I'm nervous for the family part of the and almost wish I was just in Albuquerque again instead but, I'm running away soon enough. I'm looking forward to having time to cook good food, drink, play, see friends and family and maybe even shop (maybe). I've also realized the increasing difficulty that comes with not having a set of wheels, especially around the holidays. There are people from my past that I would be interested in seeing but, it's hard to plan.

I hope I get to do some fun things soon. I'll be house-sitting and taking the bus around town which, could be fun in itself. Zoo, OMSI, the christmas ships, the Grotto, and there's always just plain old walking around. Brrr!

Sis and I hung out last night and it was everything I needed. Thank you!

Dear Santa,

Yes, I want a record player. I've decided to go vinyl because:

1) When I listen to music I want to listen to music-not just have it playing in the background or on top something else.

2) Everything's so digital but a record is sooo much cooler-it's a big tangible item that has a big pretty case.

3) More fun because in 20 minutes you have to get up and flip is over!
