New Year 2017

Happy New Years to all! The holidays are now slowly winding down. Back to work tomorrow. Back to life in less than 24 hours. I picked up a few extra shifts Christmas Day and Boxing Day but kept my NYE work-free. It felt good.

But I can’t wait to get back to the grind.

Can you?

New Year’s Eve

New Year’s came and went. Surprisingly enough, I spent it at home. It has been well over 10 years since I popped a bottle in my abode. And this year, I was stoked that I got to stay in at home and celebrate the end of the year with my family.

The night consisted of bubbly and nerdy card games. And it was great. Everyone enjoyed themselves.

It’s so strange that 5 years ago, I would dread having to ring in the new year with my family. I’d probably think that it would be so boring. But I’ve grown to love my family and I realize that I actually really enjoy spending time with them. I guess that’s what growing up and moving away from home does to you though.

Here’s to hoping that 2014 is a great year for all =)

2013 Begins

New Years Bubb;ly

Hopefully everyone has had an awesome New Years! Mine was nice and quite, just how I wanted it. Good friends, good bubbly, good times. I did pick up a bad Homeland addiction though. I have managed to stop myself at episode 7 in season 1; and hopefully I won’t waste an entire day one day catching up… I don’t have time for more TV shows.

Crowded Apple Store

One of my “To Do’s” while I have been home for the holidays was to bring my friend’s laptop into Apple for a battery replacement. She spilled tea all over it and it stopped working back in October. Because she wasn’t going home for Xmas, she asked if I could bring the MacBook into Apple and get them to fix it. “Sure,” I thought, “It shouldn’t be a problem.” Little did I know. OK – so maybe it was my fault for going to Apple on Boxing Day (I did have an excuse – I came home late, late, late on the 23rd of December and the first available appointment was on the 26th). I did find parking surprisingly easily, but my laptop issue wasn’t fixed right away. It needed a battery replacement – and they had no batteries in stock. No problem, they said they would call and book me an appointment when one came in – hence my second appointment on New Years Day. I think the mall was more crowded than it was for Boxing Day. This time, parking was a lot harder to find. But my laptop problem has been fixed 🙂

And so begins my attempt to blog more… It’s actually harder than I thought. I mean, I feel like coming up with something to write about isn’t too hard. After all, it is my blog, so if I feel like writing about bumfuck nothing, no one can stop me. But the hard part (for me) is to find the appropriate time to sit down and write. It’s not like my life is super exciting and busy, such that I don’t have a few minutes to spare to type something up… it’s just… I don’t know how to put it into words. I guess it doesn’t fit my schedule; my daily routine. So I’ll have to make it a habit to schedule in some blogging time. Maybe I’ll think of it as a job; and every night, I have a half hour shift that I have to show up for.

My Resolution

For the year of 2013, I will attempt blogging more than normal. Even if I have nothing to say. I’ll find something random to post about. Or I’ll throw up a random pic.

It’s time to revive this site…

With that note: I hope everyone has a happy new year! Party hard, party smart tonight!
