After CMU, we decided to go finish our Christmas shopping. We are so last minute every year. After we finished up at the mall, we stopped at Bucca to toast to the semester being over and receiving my grades. We ordered a spicy sausage rigatoni. The small size feeds three people. We split the rigatoni and of course had some bread. I treated myself to a couple glasses of wine. It was so relaxing the semester is over, and I am offically on Christmas break! I want to enjoy every minute of this break.
After CMU today, I went to Posvar hall to prepare for our last assessment class. We had to give a presentation about our assessment of Chatham’s LLCs. This time I had my script and I thought I was prepared enough for it. I was so ready for the semester to be over and for Christmas break to be here!
Our presentation was second to last. Once it was over, we were so relieved. Now all we had to was finalize our paper and we were good to go.
After class, I was so tired. We were out late last night at the happy hour.
I had a really good winter break. However, there were times where I was so excited to go back to work. I just like to be busy, and have a routine. I do better when I know where I am expected to go and what I am expected to. Most of the time, when I was home, and let’s say Andrew was at the gym. I went for a little, but when I came home, I took down all of the Christmas decorations and packed them away. I was over it. I am in a hurry to put it up and in a hurry to take it down. I was also PMSing that day, but still.
When Andrew came home, I had the tree in a box by the door for him to take down to the garage. Our stockings, the decorations, all of it was packed up in bins and put by the door to go to the garage. I was so over it. Drew walked in the house and said, “Wow Bub you were busy.” I said, that I felt like I really needed a project. He said, “it definitely looks like it.” The house was clean, the carpet was vacuumed. I know he said he would help, but I wanted to get it done.
Sometimes having all that time off reminded me of being unemployed, and having those feelings of silly boredom and uncertainty. I am so glad I have a job to go back to. Once I get back I just have to focus on shining. My provisional is up on January 17th. I know what I needed to do. I am just ready to do it.
Over break, we went to the movie theater to see Star Wars. It was cute, but man was it long. It was like 2-3 hours long. I am short, so those movie theater seats aren’t all that comfortable for me. The theater was packed. It made Andrew happy to go see it, so I am glad we got to go together.
Also, we spent some of my Christmas bonus. I bought some new makeup from Chanel. I may go back for the moisturizer soon. I still have a nice chunk of money left over. I bought a Kate Spade laptop sleeve for my MacBook Pro. It is rose gold and has glitter on it. I have an obsession with Kate Spade.
Another noteworthy thing that happened is my period started on time, which was amazing. I love it when it starts on time, but it has been accompanied by low back pains, and it is really concerning me. It felt like a tightly balled up feeling in my lower back. I never had lower back pain before, even when it came to a period. Only the last couple of cycles.
So most of the Friday before New Years, I was in some sort of pain, but I still carried on with our plans to go to the mall, then to dinner with my parents at TGI Friday’s. I soldiered on. After we left the restaurant, we went to Walmart, then home for the evening.
