This winter break has been an interesting one. For the most part, all I’ve done is stayed home because of the crazy snow.
This is in front of my house..the mailman even has chains on his tires.
It’s probably the first winter break that I’ve gotten bored, but I’ve still managed to keep myself surprisingly busy. I’m a restless person I suppose. Oh and the snow is now gone! well..it’s melting. Instead of snow though..there is winddd…Yesterday for lunch, Janeemebe and I went to downtown to get lunch with Mike and Didi. The wind downtown was absolutely ridiculous… Janeemebe and I were seriousllyyy blown away several times by the wind. We even had to yell to hear each other and were almost attacked by a hat that flew off some guys head.
Lately, my friends, brother and I have been playing a video game called Dokapon; it’s a RPG board game that takes HOURS…we’ve played for several days for hours on end and we’ve only gotten halfway through. It’s quite the malicious game, since it’s all about money, territory and you have so much potential to screw someone over..or at least piss them off. I usually get sleepy first, so I end up retreating to my room around 2-3am..but the others stay up until like 4-5am before leaving my house hahaha… everyone’s addicted. I’ve grown up around video games my entire life, but I don’t think I have the attention span for it…haha. We have all the new game consoles and probably thousands of video games, yet… it’s rare to catch me playing them without people over. It’s all thanks to my brother that we do have all these games…and it’s great for when the friends come over =D
Oh, and for the past week or 2 since winter break started, Whitney has been trying to deliver a gift to me, but due to the snow, both of us were stuck. At last though, she was able to stop by yesterday to deliver the gift and hang out with me and my dogs. If she reads this, thank you so so much. This will be my charm while I’m in DC for my internship.

I’m a pretty lucky person. To add to these small joys, I was able to meet up with old high school friends just last night. They were my best buddies in middle school and high school, some of them I’ve known way back to 2nd grade even. We all hadn’t gathered together very often since college started ( maybe only 2 times?), and in some cases, I hadn’t seen some of them in 2+ years. Some of us hadn’t even seen each other since leaving high school! It was a pleasant reunion and good to catch up and see how much everyone had grown. Some of it was wayyy too embarassing, but in the end, it felt good to see everyone.
