Merry Christmas! Now get out of the way.

So just the other day, I managed to venture to the mall with my mom and brother. The goal was just to browse around and enjoy the Christmas spirit as well as ogle over all of the fancy stuff on display. Big mistake. Turns out everybody else had the same idea. Except it was because they had the dreaded last minute shopping to do. I don’t blame them, although it’s something that could have avoided. It was actually rather interesting watching everybody be so self-absorbed in finding what they should buy for their loved ones. However, they were just way too self absorbed.

So much absorbed in their shopping that they couldn’t pay enough attention to where they were walking. I could’ve placed a bear trap in front of them and they wouldn’t have even noticed until it was too late. It was funny until people started to become rude about it. I mean it’s cool that you’re shopping but you don’t have to have your anger and frustration boil over to other people’s business…And just because you’re busy doesn’t mean you have to forget what manners are…for f$*k’s sake!

One lady ran into me and with the most annoying squeaky, nail-on-chalkboard voice I’ve ever heard, snarled…”Exscoose me, Tank yoo” followed by a stare of death with her muttering “Jesus, people these days”. It was so annoying that if there was a chalkboard around I would’ve smashed my head somebody else’s head through it. Not to mention she was the one not paying any attention to what was around her. It was almost dangerously close to becoming a showdown of epic proportions. Luckily, I had my Wheaties that morning and I was definitely itching for a fight. Unfortunately, the only itch that I had the opportunity to scratch was the spider(?) bite that I had on my face from the previous night.

Haha but what am I saying…It’s a special time of year, so I’m just gonna enjoy it and pretend it never happened. Actually, I already forgot so…lady consider yourself lucky since the wounds you’ve inflicted to my ears are slowly being healed by this marathon of America’s Funniest Home videos accompanied by some freshly made cookies. Soon to be followed by a slew of Christmas related movies, starting with A Christmas Story and ending with a possible sighting of Santa Claus before this night is over. So to everyone who happens to read these…Have a wonderful, merry Christmas and don’t let those Scrooges get to your holiday cheer! Because they’re definitely not going to ruin mine.

Dead Quiet

So this seems to happen to me every single year. The prospects of such a great break and all of the things that I can get accomplished is just swirling through my mind at the moment. There is just so many things that I want to be able to do this break and that is the only thing on my mind at the moment. Finally getting a chance to sleep, maybe even eat some food (thank god, since I was starting to run out of crumbs on my carpet anyway <—jk that’s gross). The possibilities are endless.

However, there is just one more obstacle in the way. It is commonly known to many as a stocky, myopic man who utilizes four powerful, mechanical appendages, and is obsessed with proving his own genius and destroying Spider-man. AKA, my finals. I’m sure many can attest…but motivation at this point is like the box of thin mints that you bought for yourself and you told your room mates that they could help themselves to it, only to find that 2 hours later nothing is left. Not even the box…or your wallet for that matter.

It doesn’t even feel like Christmas is around the corner. I could’ve swore that when I was a kid that all of the grown-ups really looked forward to the holidays. Houses on our block would be covered in the usual festive lights. There would actually be Christmas carolers and hot chocolate and the slowly growing pile of presents under our tree. I don’t know, but it seems really different these days. Christmas seems more of a marketing ploy than the remembrance of what happened on this day in history…I feel that people have really forgotten the meaning of Christmas and of the holidays in general. It seems that Thanksgiving is just a ploy to fill your stomachs to the maximum capacity, followed by Black Friday (where it’s starting to become the norm that people are being trampled to death in the quest to save a few bucks…) which then leads to Christmas.

Oh wait…whoa whoa. I’m glad you caught me deviating from studying. Better get back to it then, eh? Plus I dont even know where I was going with this one. Sigh…
