48 More Days Until Christmas!

…not that I’m counting or anything. ;)

I was driving to church with Andrew this morning and as we were fighting over which radio station to listen to, like always, I stopped on a station that was playing Christmas music! I was so happy to find that they were playing the holiday music so early. ‘Cause I need a little Christmas, right this very minute! :3

And then Andrew changed the station, the scrooge.

I know a lot of people that can’t stand Christmas music since it’s mainly the same songs they play over and over again every year, but I can’t help but love it. Christmas is my favorite holiday just because of all my favorite family traditions and memories I hold (though, the gifts are a nice little bonus on the side). Christmas music gets me excited for the holiday season.

My mom wanted me to start making a Christmas list already, and every year I don’t know why I don’t keep the one from last year because I can never think of anything that I want. I always focus on what I want to get everyone else and can never think of anything for myself. :P

The weather here has been dreadful. While I may love Christmas and Thanksgiving, I do not love the cold and dreary weather that accompanies it. If it is cold enough for me to wear a coat, I think there should be snow on the ground as well! J’aime le neige! I keep hearing of my friends across the country say that they’ve got a buttload of snow, like Paige, and I just can’t help but be jealous. Someone send some my way?

Also, I don’t think I’ve mentioned the awesomesauce hat I bought a while back. 8)

I can’t wait ’til I can wear it in the snow! :*

I’m Sorta Kinda Almost Back

Hey there guys! Ah, I’ve missed talking to you all dearly. :(

I’m here to say that I am almost sorta kinda back. School is still absolutely terrible with mounds of homework every night, but I’m hoping after this semester things will slow down. I’m not taking quite as many honors courses next semester, so hopefully my homework load will decrease.

Tennis is over, as I’ve said before, but with new troubles in itself. I seem to have hurt my foot somehow. During the season, the top of my foot hurt, but I figured I had merely bruised it from my tennis shoes and just ignored it. But now, almost two months later, it still hurts and the pain is getting worse. It’s bearable when I’m walking barefoot, but when I have to wear shoes, it’s much much worse. :/

My mom called the doctor, but he didn’t seem concerned. He told me to take pain medication and to wear flip flops. Uhm, does he not realize it’s November, as in it’s like 40 degrees outside? Kind of hard to wear flip flops… Andrew went to his doctor the other day for a check up and asked him his opinion on my foot. His doctor said if it’s been hurting that much, it needs to be looked at. So, I’m going to call my doctor again on Monday and hopefully get something done.

On a more positive note: it’s November! I hope you know what that means: National Novel Writing Month. Every November, I like to participate in NaNoWriMo, but it in itself is a difficult feat to accomplish. Writing a 50,000 word novel is ridiculous. In the three years I’ve participated, I’ve never finished (yes, yes, the shame. Someone throw a tomato at me). But this year, as always, I’m going to try again. If I don’t finish, oh well. My main goal is to just have fun with it and enjoy it. Perhaps make some new friends. And hopefully become a slightly better writer. :)

I’ve been working like crazy on it this week. I want to get ahead because I know come the middle of the month, I’ll get stuck and most likely fall behind. So I’m trying to get ahead while I can. It feels good to write again. Not just fictional nonsense either; I mean on here, too.

Anyone else doing NaNo? Wanna be my writing buddy? *puppy eyes* :)

So, I guess I’m here to say that I’ll be trying to post kind of consistently. Key word: trying. Recently, blogging has seemed like such a daunting task, as weird as that is. Hopefully I can overcome that soon and get back into the groove of things. 8)
