I want to thank everyone who already gave me a lot of questions to answer in January! You guys are the best :D The best part? They are ALL awesome questions and I can’t wait to answer them … ha-ha. Is it January yet? :D There are still a couple of spots left if anyone hasn’t and would like to ask some questions. The post is here. They can be serious, goofy, philosophical, crazy, personal… anything :D

In other news, we had a surprise visit from my aunt and uncle from Massachusetts yesterday. My aunt is my dad’s older sister, so she wanted to come visit and see how he is doing. Luckily we were at Danny’s house, so we didn’t have to stress out about getting the house in tip-top-shape. I think I’ve learned to hate surprise visits like my parents lol, but it was nice to see them and they hung out for most of Sunday with us.

I took my Final exam in Stats on Saturday, and I have no idea how I did. The questions that were on the last exam I think I did well on, and I think I did well on some of the easier questions, but I got stumped on two of the questions, so we’ll see. Even if I manage to pull off a B in this class, I’ll be so happy… I’ve never gotten better than a C in any math class I’ve ever taken.

I’m just so happy I am officially done with this semester. I have a whole month free! I have a month free because my history professor was awesome and had our final work due last week instead of this week and he didn’t give us a final (which would have been this week). He basically gave me an additional week to my break, so THANK YOU! :D

Next semester I am taking a course on Japanese history with my advisor (I took his Chinese history and I loved it, so I am really looking forward to this class), AND a course on public speaking … which I am going to hate with a passion but I have to take a “communications” class, so ugh. I read up reviews on the professor and he does a lot of group work, which I hate too because usually I’m the one stuck doing everything, but I just need to get this stupid class over with and it was the only class I could take that was on a Saturday. So yeah, I’ll be miserable :D

But yeah … that’s not until January 9th! So, I have a whole month until that torture … and it’s only once a week so I’ll be fine (maybe).

In other news, I started watching that Marco Polo show. It’s a Netflix Original and it is actually really good. I only saw 4 episodes late last night and wanted to keep going but it was midnight and I want to save the rest for next week’s break. I’m itching to go home and watch it though. It’s got everything in it – betrayal, war, sexual intrigue, political conniving, a man trapped in a world not his own and learning the ways of the culture to survive (Marco), a bad ass ruler who is both ruthless but also has a soft spot he doesn’t show many, Kung Fu (I have always loved Kung Fu and wish there was more of it in the show, but it’s still new so I’m hoping there will be lots more in future episodes)… and lots of other great things—forbidden love/lust, great fight scenes, beautiful landscapes/wardrobe for the characters and much more. Granted, the first two episodes are on the slow side, but this is what happens with most first seasons, but after the second episode, it really picks up and I can’t wait to finish this season. Another reason I love Netflix, they release the entire season in one shot.

So, that is a new add to my shows list. I hope Netflix does a second season :D Anyone else watch it? Tonight I’ll catch up on last week’s episode of The Flash, Constantine, Bones (which was their 200th episode and I have been avoiding social media to not get spoiled, raWr!), Forever and Castle. I think next week I’ll catch up on The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones since those two shows I love to watch back-to-back (and wish they were released like the Netflix shows).

P.S.  I officially deleted my Facebook. I can't stand it at all, and I just feel angry, annoyed, and hateful toward people whenever I browse through my feed, and I don't like feeling that way. Facebook is so not worth it, and if people really need to get in touch with me, they can do it like we all USED to do it ... actually pick up the phone and call me? Make plans to actually hang out? Actually care enough to not drop a brief line on my wall and take real time out of their day to stay in touch? You know, how friendships should work.

Remind me again why I was encouraged to go back to school? Ugh. This research paper has been making my life miserable lol. What little free time I have these days, this paper is soaking it up like a bounty paper towel. I managed to get a total of 9 pages written (out of 15) between Sunday and Monday ... and it is pure shit. It's just a draft, I know ...but I just don't have the heart for it. He only wanted to see a partial draft today, but I wanted to write as much of this stupid thing as I could so I could enjoy at least a little of my Thanksgiving this weekend.

On top of it, he is probably going to give us our take home final, which is another chunk of writing.... Annnnnnnnd reading because this paper has consumed my life. I have been reading for it and totally not touched the class book for these last two sessions. I also have a Stats final coming up, and we have ONE class (after Thanksgiving) to go over THREE chapters and then he is giving us a cumulative final ... Have I mentioned, FML? LOL 

So yeah, I am pretty stressed out these last few days and haven't had much 'fun time' except for Saturday night. We all went out to Plaza Azteca for my brother NP's birthday. It was him, my other brother DP, Trisha, Erica, Mike, Vince, Bruno, Bianca, Diane, Flo, myself and some friend of my brother DP. Dinner was great, with lots of laughs, stupidity and delicious food. We took almost two hours there, and then we went to the new Dave and Busters that opened up. I really didn't want to go to that part, but since they all insisted on carpooling, I was pretty much stuck.

It was an okay time. It was pretty packed when we first got there (almost 10PM). A lot of the gaming machines were taken up, so it was a 'which game can we get on' type of game in itself. Thankfully, about 10:30PM, they kicked out everyone under 18, so that freed up a bit of the games and some I admit were fun... others meh. We pretty much spent the rest of the night there until about 2am. Left the place, hung out outside in the parking lot talking loud and laughing like idiots.

They still wanted to go out to some 24-HR diner and I had to put my foot down. Luckily Bruno/Bianca live near my brother DP (where I left my car), so they offered to take me there on their way home. Driving to MY home, I watched two deer cross the street near my house (never saw deer that up close before and they've never been this close to us), and it was really an "awwww" type of deal. I immediately passed out the second I got home.

I got up super late on Sunday ... the latest in a long while. After a late lunch at DP's house, I got to work on the stupid paper and around 10, I just couldn't take anymore and went to sleep.

Yeah .... it's an UGHHH few days, but I have Thursday/Friday off, and hopefully I can get this paper finished Wednesday, so I can enjoy the four day weekend and then just proof the thing on Sunday. Probably won't go down like that though. I'm a huge procrastinator and know it's not due until next Tuesday, so I will probably not work on it until super late Sunday night.

TWO sorta-new, but not new shows I'm into right now:

Reckless - Trisha and I started it at DP's house while lunch was being prepared. I really got into the show (we watched 6 episodes). Got home, googled it and come to find out CBS cancelled it. To say I was pissed was an understatement. I didn't even know this show was on air this summer? Did they even promote it? So yeah, the season on Netflix only has 13 episodes and apparently its quite the cliffhanger too. Ugh. I just didn't even want to watch the last few episodes but I probably will ...haha.

How I Met Your Mother - Okay, I am so late for this bandwagon, I know. I don't know why, but when it actually was on air, I thought the premise to the show was a little dumb. Last night I needed a break from all the writing and something to just go to sleep to and started the first season up on Netflix. I am mad I missed out on watching it when it was on air, but I was happy to see it has 9 seasons. So that is going to be my new show I watch as often as I can. Though I admit I am tempted to jump ahead and see who 'mom' is but I am holding it back in haha.

Anywho ... I think I am going to get some actual work done before the break and then later see if I can do some holiday shopping... still haven't started ):
