I think I've been enjoying the lack of tests and essays to finish this entry... But then a certain someone asked why I hadn't updated in a while, and I had to oblige. Normal posting should resume now.
Not surprisingly, I learned two Saturdays ago that when my dad picked me up from school that my family had yet to pick up a Christmas tree. This is usually how things work around my family. If it weren't for the last minute, some things would never get done for my family... But I digress.
Despite some incredibly late gift hunting, wrapping, and name-tagging, this Christmas was definitely one of the best. I got to spend Christmas Eve with Vic, which was wonderful. It had been over a week since we'd seen each other, and when you're used to spending nearly every day with your best friend, it felt like forever. I can't wait until he and his parents come over for dinner next week. It's always wonderful to see everyone.
I can also honestly say that at twenty-two years old, I've met the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. Knowing that there's someone who cares as much about you as you do about them, who makes you laugh like you didn't know was possible, tear up because of sweet text and Facebook messages, and smile like it's the only thing you know how to do... It makes me the happiest, luckiest girl in the world.
Vic, I love you and can't wait to spend forever with you. You are my best friend, the love of my life, and my rock. I would not be the same person I am today if you hadn't come up to talk to me after your night class on a Monday almost a year ago.
My grandparents spent Christmas day with us. Between my father making some off-color (albeit hilarious) comments, my brother being ridiculous, and my grandmother nearly snorting her can of Coke through her nose, it was pretty hilarious.
It's been a low-key holiday break so far, but honestly, after a busy first semester of graduate school, I'm not about to complain. (Sure, teaching my mom how to use her new toy [the iPad she claims will be for work only] has been interesting, but she's doing well with it.)
Now to plan menus for next week and try my hand at cooking...
