Ugh, this video on BBC Earth just totally touched my heart. It’s that awesome.

I want to rage about the 141 innocent lives that the Taliban ruthlessly slaughtered, but that will not bring them justice or peace. My heart is breaking for the families of those tiny souls ... such heartlessness cannot continue, but how do we (as in me and other citizens of the world trapped without the ability to do anything) help stop these absolutely insane men--because only people who have absolutely lost their mind could find any kind of message in the senseless murder of innocent children. I just ... I can't. This world is seriously coming to an end.

[I said I wasn't going to rant about it and did, sigh. Moving on.]

Thank you so very much [personal profile] yohjideranged . I received your Christmas card <3

Now that the semester is over and I have nothing pressing on my brain to write for class, I’ve gotten the mojo back to start writing this book idea I have. I’ve written two chapters so far, and I like the concept brewing in my brain for the 'bad guy', bwahaha. Your book is only as good as your villain to hero ratio man! :D LOL Yeah, I have no idea what I am talking about.

So that will be my project while we're in the Berkshires next week. I am going to bring some movies too, but a lot of what Ill do is probably writing.  That and I am going to see if I can find a good editing program for my MAC so I can make some icons lol ... Give me some fun stuff to do that week since we usually just sit around, veg out and watch movies or play video games anyway :D It really is a great week!

I did decide I will make some Christmas decorated cupcakes next week, so I need to go buy some ingredients today, and since tomorrow is work's Christmas party, I'll grab something for that too.

I do plan to bring my camera next week, so hopefully I can get some nice photos out there that I can share. Oh! I also have to buy gingerbread house kits for us to make those next week too... bwhahaha. So much to do this week and so little time (and pack...ahhhh).

It's weird to feel both angry at the world and excited for a trip. I feel like a horrible person. :/

The Paper of DOOM is done! It ended up being exactly 12 full pages (would have been 13 but I cut some things out). Once I added in all the images, it turned into 16. w00ts! He wanted at least 12 written, no more than 15 written. He said we could add the pictures into the body of the paper to make life easier, so yay.

I also did my museum write up. I remembered we went to Sturbridge Village a couple of months ago, so I referred back to the photos I took that day (which luckily I am who I am and take a bunch of photos of everything) and wrote that 3 page paper. So, as far as my history class goes? I am DONE!

Now I just have to spend the next few days studying for my final exam in Stats which is Saturday. After that I am free of homework, papers, tests, and insanity until January 9th, when my first class starts back up for Spring.

I am very excited about this. I am dying for a break at school AND at work. Remember co-worker from a few posts ago? Well, she’s driving me bonkers and LB and I are just sick and tired of her right now. Christmas break can’t get here soon enough and thankfully we close down for two whole weeks, so it will actually be a break.

My family and I are going away the week of Christmas too. We leave on Sunday the 21st and come back that following Sunday. But that weekend my friend Erica invited a few of us up to Vermont for the weekend, so I’ll have to be packed and ready to go on the Friday (19th) since we’ll be leaving that day for Vermont, coming back from there early on Sunday morning, and then I’m leaving again with the family on Sunday… ha. It’s going to be a long weekend. But we usually just hang out at the Berkshires, so I’ll get a lot of relaxing in.

So yeah, I am really looking forward to those two trips—w00t! Can I get a TWO MORE CLASSES AND I AM DONE HALLELUIAH!

I swear, that is the question a favorite co-worker just asked my best friend co-worker about her boss.#weirdthingsIhearatwork

I chuckled (cuz my mind always immediately goes dirty) and and gave her a hard time. "Really? Most random question of the day award goes to!"

In other news ... A few weeks ago HR sent out a note to let us know we were hosting the "Turkey and a Thirty" Foodshare drive again for the community. I totally forgot about it, and so when I came in today I felt bad. Luckily, I had twenty bucks on me, so even though it's not a turkey and thirty, it's at least something.

They were handing out cute little stickers with their receipts, so I had to take a photo with my phone, ha.

I'm trudging along in this book for my research paper. I am almost halfway through it. It's sad... its not even 300 pages. I can read a 300 page book in one night if I am really into the book (Ive done it many times), but this thing is like pulling teeth. After reading this, I have to read fraken 10 articles so it's not my only source (he wants at least 5 and 1 primary). I also have to study tonight and tomorrow for my stupid stats test. HELP MEH! ): LOL

At least tonight I get a short break from this insanity. Hanging out with Trisha and Diane. We're going to go to Starbucks since they have their "RED CUPS" out right now. I want my damn gingerbread latte :D  Then we're going to go do a little Christmas shopping at Target (stocking stuffers, though I might buy my mom and dad's gift there if I can find something they might actually like).

Every year I have this problem. My parents have EVERYTHING they want or need... when they need something they just buy it. When they want something, they just buy it. They have NO hobbies, so I can't just buy something for that. They hate going out and dinning or doing activities. They like to hang out at home or at my brother's house and relax (they've worked very hard all their lives, and don't know how to 'splurge').  They're so difficult to shop for...ugh. I may just give them gift cards to places but I hate that cop out ... it feels like a cop out LMAO. RaWR!  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!

Other than that, I have only bought one thing for Diane and one thing for Trisha for Christmas. I haven't found anything for my two brothers ... UGH. I have started to write holiday cards, so if you're interested in one, please see the post before this one :D

So I pull into work at the same time as one of my co-workers (that I actually like). I decide to wait for her to park so we can walk in together.

As we cross the parking lot and are about to step onto the main path, something absolutely horrible and unbelievable happens. My right foot steps on some type of gravel rock the size of the grand canyon ... and since I can't talk and walk at the same time ... I didn't notice it. I knew I was going down when I got that "Uh oh" feeling in the pit of my stomach. Sure enough, in super-slow-motion I manage to twist so I don't land on my hands and land instead on my left butt cheek and knee.

Queue the flaming red face, my gaze dancing around rapidly to see if I catch any curtains being nudged aside as I am sure the entire neighborhood just saw me tumble and fall!

Thankfully my coworker didn't laugh in my face. She helped me up, picked up the offensive rock and tossed it into nearby bushes. Then she proceeded to tell me about the time she broke both wrists ... at the same time. See why she's one of my favorites? 

Got inside with only a slight limp and proceeded to tell my best friend, who also works right next to me, the whole ordeal. First thing she does? Bursts out laughing. Not just tiny giggles ... no, full blown hyena laugh! Of course, I may have been telling the story in a way to get her to laugh, but that's NOT the point.

Queue coworker who witnessed the ordeal coming down the hall. I tell her how my best friend just burst out laughing at my horrific experience, and she shakes her head at her in shame. Win for me! LOL 

In all seriousness though, I am not hurt. My knee is a little bruised but another favorite coworker sneaked her way downstairs and got me some ice, which was very nice of her. I iced it for about half an hour and now it's feeling much better.

But yeah, it always makes me laugh how my first reaction is never "Am I okay?" but "Okay, who the hell just saw me fall like that? Must hunt them down and silence them!" ha-ha.

So that was the start of my day ... How has yours been? Lol

I am just very happy I have the next two days off work. What's sad is that I am very excited to play the new World of Warcraft expansion (which is why I took the time off... yes, I am a huge nerd). I managed to hit level 56 on my Hunter yesterday. I hope to get the last 4 levels today so I can boost her before the expansion. I want to concentrate on my main, a paladin, the next four days and try to get her as close to level 100 as possible. Oh yeah I gotta post the screen cap of her transmog gear ... Ill do that later today.
