One Measly Christmas Picture.

Christmas is over??? It never really felt like it was coming and now it's did that happen? As I'm getting older I feel like the excitement of the season is growing fainter. I LOVE Christmas, so don't worry...I will fix this problem! I think it has to do with being away at school and not being around for all the chaos of Christmas shopping, movies, parades, parties, and food. Studying for finals (not to mention being at school in the middle of nowhere) kind of got in the way of all that this year. I'm so glad this was the last year that college will interfere with Christmas!

Want to know something pathetic? I only took ONE picture on Christmas day. One measly picture.

Oh well, at least I got a picture with these two special people. Brianna is in the middle. She is my cousin, but even more so she's my best friend. We're only 9 months apart and we've been super close our whole lives. Next to her is her boyfriend, Danny, who is also one of my best friends. We've been best friends since 8th grade. I don't think I could have gotten through all those years without him. I am beyond grateful to have two such lovely people in my life.

Next up: New Year's. As of right now I'm planning on spending New Year's Eve with my mom's side of the family at the bowling alley and then to my house for pizza. I'm pretty sure we have done this for the past 5 years AT LEAST. For a girl who wants nothing more than to spend New Year's Eve in Times can imagine spending what's supposed to be the most magical night of the year in sweaty bowling shoes is starting to get old. Oh well, time with family should be held dear I suppose. I do love them after all...I would just love them more if they all got on a plane to NYC with me to see the ball drop. =)

Some day...

Another semester down!

My blog and I haven't seen much of each other this semester, sadly.
Taking 19 credits kind of made things difficult.

But...I'm home now.
Six semesters down, one to go!
My blog and I are going to have some much needed time together.

A whole month of no class, no tests, no projects!

As great as winter break is, it also means missing friends like crazy.
Some of my best friends graduated this semester.
Saying bye to them was one of the saddest things ever.

Even though I have no idea how I'm going to survive my last semester of college without these girls, I am so excited for them. They have some exciting opportunities in front of them and I can't wait to see what they end up doing with their lives!

Have any of you had to go through a time without your closest friends?
...Because I am very curious to find out how you survived it!
