Every year I get more and more creeped out about Black Friday. Just hearing what people go through just to get stuff. C'mon, pepper spray? Really? The level of materialistic obsession and selfishness is getting just out of control. I know black Friday is supposed to fun and have that sense of the mad dash to get something for a loved one, but I think it's getting a bit out of control.

[/sits back down on soapbox]

I hope my American friends had a good Thanksgiving. :)

School is just so fucking crazy right now that it's incredible. I have about three weeks of classes left and we still have several projects left to do PER CLASS (I'm taking eight right now), plus forour final projects. Luckily I just started on the final project for my Drawing for Illustration class, but it's gonna take a lot of time. So if no one sees me for awhile I'm not dead, just working and trying to get what little sleep I can.

This weekend though should be interesting. My mum and I are Chihuahua sitting for someone this weekend while they go to Vegas. She brought the two Chihauhau's over last Friday to let them check our place out and meet the cats, boy they were not happy. Even though they're all twice the size of these dogs (well, Moe is actually about five times their size) they run like chickens. I think I'm going to be sleeping with a lot of cats on my bed tomorrow night and Sunday.

They're cutting down tree's. They're putting up reindeer. And singing songs of joy and peace. Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on.

I've been debating really what to write, good, bad, the ugly, the fuzzy, but I'm sitting here still stuck on really how to say how I feel. I guess some things you cannot put into words.

Anyway, some of you have been with me on here and other places a long time and know that the past few years hasn't been the best for our family, but things are finally a bit more stable. Things don't look a whole lot better money wise, but things are moving. Dad has a new job, I'm still at my job and going to school, mum's been at her job almost a year and still hates it. LOL But she does it anyway and for that I couldn't be prouder. Mum's make a hell of a lot of sacrifices and if we know it or not sometimes there's just nothing you can do or say to really say how greatful you are to them. I know I am. I lucked out big time with her and my dad. Even though my family life wasn't the best I still had two loving parents who always wanted the best for me and encouraged whatever I wanted to do. I really couldn't ask for more.

Also all of you here on LJ, on-line and in RL. Sometimes the power of LJ/on-line fandoms just cannot be put in place. You guys lift me up when I'm sad/mad/bitchy/hormonal/happy/sappy/emo/horny :P, and again I cannot put into words at the kindness and joy that I feel for you all. I really is a miracle. 95% I've never talked to in RL or met in person, we just met through here or on another board or whatever. Fandom may have it's wanks and it's idiot fans, but really the power of fandom brings so many people together it's insane. Before I got into LOTR ect., I didn't really have any friends and then I met a select few who really changed my life and took me on a whole different journey. Fandoms may change, crushes may change, but a lot of you I'm still connected to and I feel very blessed.

Thank you, everyone. I wish you nothing but love and laughter and joy for this Christmas and all through the new year. I know sometimes I'm not always there for you, we all have RL things that take away stuff, but know that I am always here. Always feel free to comment or leave me a note if something you want me to look at. Sometimes my mind is like a sieve and I say I'll do something then completely forget. We all do it, we're only human.

This Christmas will be a bit different this year though. I lost my boy this past June. In some ways I still can't wrap my head around it, I don't think it will really ever sink in. Sitting there at the vets that day was just.... I can't say. I don't want to say. That's for me and him. All I know is that it was time and I have very good memories of him. Jackson was my first dog and you never forget your first dog, cat, fish, bird, hamster or whatever. There's nothing else quite like your first fuzzy (or feathered or finned). Sometimes I find myself just tearing up at odd moments about him, then the moment passes and I smile because he was a goof and did some pretty bad stuff that we laugh at now (except on a few matters, but those are for another day).

Miss you lots.

Despite all my trials these past months and few years I am still a very blessed individual. I have my health, my family is in relatively good health, I have a home that we have been in for a year and a half now, I have friends and I have laughs. Many, many people cannot say the same thing. All I can do is wish them that they have some sort of happiness and joy in their life.

I have a cat staring and meowing at me and waiting to be lifted on to the couch, so I'll wrap up.

Even if you don't read this, basically I wish you all the very best in everything for this season and the new year to come (2007, wtf?!).

4th year using this banner and I still love it. *G*

Back from my Aunt and Uncles. Mum and I got way more presents than we deserved. I gave everyone a mug and a pound of coffee and that was that. Mum got a Panini Press to grill sandwiches, a pair of slippers and some other bath and bed goodies. I got about $125 worth of gift certificates to various places, Star Wars Ep. III on DVD and stationary.

I honestly wasn't expecting so much this year. Mum and I were both crying while we opened presents. No one really noticed because of the racket that the two boys were putting up (a 3 and 4 year old will do that). Dinner was really nice, my aunt always does really good meals.

This Christmas was hard in some ways, but great in others. I really am lucky to have my family, even though we may fight and bitch and moan. But that's what families do, right?

I hope you all had a good Christmas and Happy Boxing Day to those of you who have it. :)

Tomorrow: laptop shopping after work.

Merry Christmas everyone! Also a very Happy Chanukah tonight!

We normally don't get mail on Saturdays in Canada, but I was shocked when I just got a knock at the door from the mail man. [livejournal.com profile] damm, thank you so much. Really you didn't have to do this, but thank you. It just cheered me up so much. I was feeling kinda shitty, but now I'm just laughing and crying at the same time. Thanks again. <3333

I may sound a bit emo here, but if you could read this entry it'd make me happy.

This year.... I just really cannot put into words. There are so many things I want to forget and so little I want to cherish, sad but true and I really do hurt inside to think of some things that has gone on. I really still cannot put my head around what's happened. In my life, in my families lives, in my friends and in the world. I've grown so much as a person and in many different ways this year and I think I may be better for it. I'm not sure. I still have a lot of growing to do.

But one thing that has been constant through all of this is you guys. I honestly don't think I'd be here (I'm not talking suicide or anything like that) or at least part of me wouldn't be here without you guys. I know some of you knew exactly how I felt and some of you may not have known the full extent, but did feel my pain. Being homeless and evicted from 2 places in less than 4 months isn't easy, as well as being broke and on welfare most of the time. You guys really helped. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know I may have been selfish and may not have been there for all of you as much as I should have, we all have our own battles to go through and if I wasn't there I'm truly sorry.

This Christmas for me will be hard, but I'm lucky in so many ways that others are not, so I am counting my blessings. This will be my first Christmas without a tree, so it'll feel kinda weird, but what I lack in tree's I have in love. Wow, how corny was that sentence? Compared to past Christmas's I'm hardly getting anything, but I don't care because there are more important things. although I'd still like Orlando buck nekkid in my bed Christmas morning.

If I had the power to give everyone what they wanted for Christmas I'd do it in a heart beat, but sadly I'm not God. *le sigh* I'm sorry I couldn't even send out many cards or even presents this year. My family is getting nothing but coffee this year because I can't afford to give them anything else. Please know that I have you all in my prayers and in my thoughts for this season and in the new year.

You are all angels in your own beautiful way. Thank you.

This'll be the 3rd Christmas I've used this banner on here, and I still love it to bits. *G*

[livejournal.com profile] shannytook, I got your card and photos today. Thank you so so so much, really that made me smile (and cry). You didn't have to, but you did. I would totally love to be pen pals with ya. :)

Work was just non stop today. I'm so happy to be home. Now I'm just going to wrap the few presents I have for people and watch Dark Angel. Damn that show for getting me addicted all over again.

I also need a beta for an NCIS fic that I've written. It's for [livejournal.com profile] ncis_tinsel and I have to post it on the 1st, so if anyone would do that for me before the 1st that would be great. It's not that long (approx. 1000 words) and is PG-13, Gibbs/DiNozzo. Thanks!

Tonight was our staff Christmas party over at B's house. So much fun and she made the best mashed potatoes I've ever had (until I taste some of [livejournal.com profile] daizalicious's spuds of course). Good times were had. We played that DVD games Scene It and I totally blew everyone out of the water. Well, that is until G and his brother came over. After that G and I talked about video games and stuff like that. Yeah, we're cool. LOL And his brother played the guitar on the couch. Oh, and did I mention that I was sitting between them? *G* Sadly they both have girl friends. Bah. I'm not bitter. After that they gave me and a couple of others a ride home and we talked about porn. Yes, porn. Talking porn with two smokin' hot guys while they give you a ride home. I can live with that.

After yesterdays rant, I forgot to say thank you [livejournal.com profile] across_thestars for the Christmas card. You're the first card I have gotten. Thank you. :)

Tonight dad and I are going to see Walk The Line. Joaquin here I come.

I lost you to the summer wind...
bunnylove: (Bitch Plz Balian)
I'm kinda sad that I may not have a Christmas tree this year. We usually have this giant artificial one we put up, but dad has it packed away in his storage locker and refuses to get it. :\ Mum and I can't afford a real one, so I'm trying to think of what to do.

Took my laptop back to Staples. Pray that it gets fixed this time. Cuz if not.... *insert explosion noises here*

LJ is really starting to piss me off with these old comments.

Today is the first day I can breath through my nose again! How nice! It was also my first shift without feeling like complete shite most of the time.

Every year Starbucks comes out with its advent calendars (you know the calendars where you get the little chocolates every day), and they sell out quick. Thursday, B asked me if I had gotten mine, and I said no, because they sold out before I kinda clued in to get one. Anycrap, she felt bad that I didn't get mine and she knew that mum lost her job and money was tight. This morning when I came in to open up, S handed me this wrapped package and said it was from B. I opened it up and it was an advent calendar! Not the Starbucks kind (you gotta go to hell and back to find one), but just one of those cheapie kinds that you get from the drug store, but that just totally made my week. Seriously. I was just so touched that I just had a great day at work (but omg, so busy).

Just goes to show that there is some real good out in the world. :)

Oh, and also a tip for you hot chocolate lovers, when you order a HC ask for a pump or two of gingerbread syrup. So yummy.

Watching Oprah's Favourite Things just makes me so Christmasy.
