Holiday Wrap-Up

Well, I'm back at college, and I am relieved. Don't get me wrong, I loved going home and everything, but it just didn't feel the same. Mom had moved a bunch of boxes and other things into my room, so the feng shui was a little off there, and I had a hard time getting to sleep in my old bed. Plus, the hot water went out halfway through the week, as did the phones (which meant no Internet at all -- say it ain't so!) Not only that, but my high school football team -- which had been having a perfect 12-0 season, lost the one game that I went to and were eliminated from the state playoffs. Then my 83-year-old grandfather took a nasty fall and had to be rushed to the hospital. (He's fine, by the way, but he might not be able to live at home for much longer).

Yeah, other than that, it was a pretty good holiday :-/ Seriously, I enjoyed seeing all my family and friends (not to mention the food! -- caramel apple pies from Sam's Club are where it's at). It's just that things didn't really feel the same. People had different haircuts, were up to new things, etc. Not that I didn't enjoy it less, but it just felt less like home than it did last time. Then again, it is less of home, when I get down to it. In a few years, it won't be home. A little sad, but I'm kinda excited.

Well, I'll blog something of substance tomorrow. There are lots of things on my mind that I could probably write 5-page essays about, but I'm a little too bogged down in Algebra homework to do that right now. So, I'll just leave on a light note: I saw Breakfast at Tiffany's for the first time last night, and it was just short of being a life-changing experience. Seriously, it's in my top ten movies now (might even be in the top five). O, Audrey, how I love thee.

Peace, everyone
