The holidays are almost here! Wow, this semester has really sped by. It seems like it started only a few months ago, and now it's practically over. Where does the time go?!

Finals are coming up so I'm a little stressed out right now. I've got sooooo many papers and projects to make up, who has time to study for finals? Why do they always put the finals right at the end when you're way too busy?! It's like they're setting you up to fail.

My Finals are going to be sooooo hard. It's my own fault. I shouldn't have taken so many science classes. Biology, Sociology, Political Science-- it's too much! Next year I'm definitely going to have to take it easier. I still haven't decided on a major, but I'm leaning towards Communications, because I love to communicate! Plus, that's what all the football players take, so how hard could it be?

Well, gotta run. There's a party at the Deke house which promises to be a rager, and they're going to have a Santa and everything! I love Santa soooo much. I'm just a very spiritual person that way-- religious symbols are soooo important to me! Especially at this Christmas-time of year. I mean, I don't really care about the Easter Bunny so much anymore, but Santa is still the best! Christmas without Santa would be like Spring Break at your grandmother's house. Lame!!! LOL!!!

Well, in a couple of days I have to go home for Thanksgiving. I used to really like Thanksgiving when I was younger, but now that I'm in college, it's become much more inconvenient. I mean, the food is good and all (oh my God, the cafeteria sucks so bad!!! It's all just fat and cholesterol. I had to rent a mini-fridge for my dorm-room just to have my yogurt in the morning!), but I'm going to be home in another month for Christmas anyway-- why do they have to stack them both up so close? You shouldn't have to see your family twice in only a month like that. It takes all the fun out of it. I mean, it's not like I'm against Thanksgiving, but I just think mid-October would be better.

One thing that really really bugged me last Thanksgiving was, for some stupid reason, Mom decided we should go around the table and everyone say something that they're thankful for. What is up with that?! Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time of tradition, and we've never had to do that before-- way to break tradition, Mom! I mean, yes, I've got things to be thankful for, but it's soooo wrong to put people on the spot like that without warning. Like, what am I supposed to say? I'm thankful that my recurring nausea was caused by a batch of tainted yogurt instead of morning sickness? As if!!! So I had to make something up about being with my family and all. It seemed to go over okay, but this year I'm totally planning out what I'm thankful for ahead of time.

But if Mom doesn't make us go around the table this year, and I thought over all the stuff I'm thankful for for nothing, I am going to be soooo mad!
