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 ):
