Sure it's been December for well...a week. But I'm here! I'm hoping to get a few blogs in for this month - because I may not like the cold but I LOVE the Christmas season!
I love hot chocolate, I love fireplaces and most of all I love caroling :)!

Well I'll start with what's been going on in my life and then give a little rant about Christmas (and no the beginning was not even close enough to covering it).
Alrighty! So last I left off was - well you look if you want to know :P
I'm still living here in the big city and I'm still living alone in my sister's place (while she's on vacay) Still talking to that sister (through emails and calls) and another sister (who moved to Baku). Anywho...for the most part life is pretty good! I enjoy the city and I like my job for now. I'm still trying to decide what I should do with my life for forever - but I still have time (I guess). I like my ward (church for those who don't know) and I'm involved with choir and music within that. It's actually been pretty busy lately with choir and being asked to sing for another thing. So I've been practicing and such. But I'm not complaining! I love music and ESPECIALLY Christmas music :)
BUT one bit of eventfulness - however unnecessary it was...A BUS HIT ME! A city bus... ran into my back right corner. It wasn't very bad by any means but it was still a pain! I stopped at a red light and there were apparently going to get behind me - and YES, you can use your imagination. So that was not so pleasant. And I had to make a claim and all that jazz. After the bus hit me - all I could think was really? Again? Is this a sign? Should I not be living here? Should I give up the keys? Throw in the towel? Call it a day? (Yes I'm sure you get the point) But all this was running through my mind and I eventually just said well you know what - it wasn't my fault and things happen. SO MOVING ON WITH LIFE - hopefully there's no more accidents in the near (or distant) future.

OH! AND that night I went home and the fireplace didn't work! And it hasn't worked since then - and it depresses me slightly but what can I do? (Get it fixed?? Meh.)

Alright...well Christmas has always been one of my favorite times of the year. We would always have a huge get-together - the whole fam damily. There would be tons of food - probably slight weight gain, and we would act out the Nativity and well...it was always a disaster.
Sheep would be running free (and Shepherds too likely), Angels missing, Mary falling off the donkey and well - I think you get the drift. But for me - I wouldn't have it any other way! I loved those days and I hold those memories dear. Christmas (and also being away from them more) makes me appreciate my family - especially my parents - so much more. Sometimes I used to think what it would like if I would have been born into a different family, but honestly...now, I can't imagine that at all. I love my family so much and I'm grateful for my parents and the example they are and all they've done for me throughout my life.
But anyways - Christmas is full of delicious bevys, and scrumptious goodies.
And Christmas music - I love it. Enough said.

OH! Another thing - I've also gotten out my guitar! I hadn't played in - pretty much a year! pretty crazy eh? The first day was utterly painful, but I think my finger callouses are coming along pretty good again. :)

I think that's pretty much it....I haven't been home for a few weeks now, can't wait til Christmas! Miss everyone. Haven't been able to go to the gym as much as I used to because I usually work kind of late and don't feel up to it at 7ish. But I still try and go when I can!
Still need to get a few more Christmas gifts and keep practicing - one of my performances is this Sunday! Wish me luck!! :)

Tell me some of your Christmas memories/traditions! (message or comment)

Also! Looking for some questions of any sort - leave me a comment, text me, messsage, facebook... question me!

Hope all is well in your lives :D


RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I got W and I some special advent calendars this year (yes, where you eat a chocolate everyday - it's behind a special little window/door and it's awesome~!) - anyways...this awesome advent calendar is KINDER! It has little eggs, and shoko bons and yes just amazing. For Christmas it's a Kinder Surprise! I'm excited (and easily amused yes). But that is beside the point - just thought I'd let you know.

Happy Holidays Everyone~!


  1. I loooove Christmas songs. Especially from Boney M - I have so many memories with their Christmas music! Every year, my parents used to play the Boney M Christmas tape on Christmas morning as we ate breakfast and opened presents.

    I also love caroling (as you know). I loved it that one year when we were delivering Christmas baskets for YW and we were paired together and we sounded AWESOME. And then we went to the elder's apartment, but they weren't home so we were beckoning them to "come hither!" for nothing. Ahh, we were such creeps.

  2. Hahaha. Ok that was awesome. And we should go caroling again! :) And yes... I do recall beckoning. Good old Boney M - I'm pretty sure, at home, my mom has a dvd you put in of Boney M Christmas music and it's just a picture of a fireplace the whole time. Fireplaces without warmth aren't fireplaces at all
