Happy Saturday all. I have been very forgetful so far this break, and I have forgotten to properly keep up with my blog; my apologies. I haven’t been doing much, but break has been treating me well.
I work at a department store whenever I am at home, and since it’s the Christmas season, I’ve naturally been working quite a bit. The day after Christmas I had to work at 5:45 a.m., so that was fun. The best part of work is my Work BFF, Erma. She’s a 60-something-year-old woman, and we’ve been working a lot together this break. Work together, friends forever.
Now available at a store near you.
My Christmas was pretty nice as well. I just spent the day at home with the fam, but it was solid. The highlight of Christmas was that my younger brother, Ben, recorded a cd of him singing several popular songs and gave that to my older brother and me as our gifts. He titled it A Very Benny Christmas. It’s stupendous.
I’ve also been spending a lot of time at this adorable coffee shop in my hometown, and I’ve decided coffee shops soothe my soul. I also officially started writing my memoir, so if you’ve ever wronged me, I’ll probably write terrible things about you.
Enjoy the rest of break and thanks for reading
P.S. I decided I’m going to start including the Word of the Day in my posts because words are fun. Today’s word, mea culpa: a formal acknowledgement of personal fault or error
Happy Wednesday everyone! Hopefully everyone is getting back in the swing of things after being home for break. If you are feeling stressed, just power through. I promise you will make it out alive!
Speaking of being home over break, I had a wonderful break. I got to see all of my friends and family and I got to celebrate my birthday at home, which was lovely. Sad story of my existence: my mother forgot to put my birthday on the calendar. In my household, the calendar is a big deal. It is in the kitchen, which is the central spot in my house, and everything happening during the week goes on the calendar. Everyone’s birthday in my family goes on the calendar as well. Well, in typical accordance with my life, my mother forgot to put my birthday on the calendar.
The sad story that is my life.
She remembered to put my brother John’s birthday on the calendar and he wasn’t even home for it! I noticed that I was forgotten on Friday when I came home and waited till Wednesday to see if anyone would notice. No one did. I told my younger brother Ben (have you seen my vlog with him?) that mom forgot so he wrote it on the calendar for me. What a gem!
Speaking of Ben being the greatest and people forgetting about me, I saw my grandmother over break! Yes, the grandmother who favors everyone over me. (I did a vlog about her too!) My roommate Ashni came home with me for a few days over break and she got to meet my grandma. My grandma didn’t say anything particularly hateful towards me, but when I stepped out of the room for a moment, my grandmother started talking to Ashni about Ben and told her that whenever she sees Ben’s face, she just gets so happy. Needless to say, she has never said that about me. In other news, my father told me Ben was more memorable than me. #ADayInTheLife
Other than that, nothing too significant happened over break. My family all came over on Thanksgiving and it was lovely seeing them. I hope everyone had smashing Thanksgivings as well! Have a wonderful rest of the week and thanks for reading
P.S. My family really doesn’t hate me. I just have middle child syndrome.
I did another vlog! Please check it out
Thanks for reading/ watching
“Well, you’re not fat.” Those were the kind, first words my grandmother greeted me with upon seeing me home from college (she is quite the character and says similarly lovely things to me on a regular basis, so she will probably get her own post sometime). Sadly, fall break is drawing to a close. I had not been home since the start of school, so it has been absolutely lovely seeing my family and friends from back home, not to mention sleeping in my own bed.
My family (minus my older brother) when they came and visited a few weeks ago!
Since being home I realized how many little things from back home I took for granted. As I just mentioned, sleeping in my own bed. I’m not saying my bed at Butler prevents me from a fitful sleep (I love sleeping so much, I could honestly sleep anywhere), but nothing compares to your own bed. Another thing that has been really nice is not having to wear shoes into the bathroom or shower. The first shower I took upon arriving home, without shower shoes I might add, was glorious! The water made my skin feel soft, it didn’t have a funny smell to it, and I didn’t have to wear shoes. I had never felt so alive! Another spectacular thing about being home is the food. My mother is an excellent cook and she bakes a lot so it was nice to walk in the door, greeted by brownies, cookies, and candy (This is not a rare occurrence, sweets account for most of the food in my house). Having home cooked meals has been splendid as well.
Although I have loved being home, I do already miss my friends from school, as strange as that sounds since we have only been apart for a few days. Being home is the bee’s knees, but I am anxious to get back to Butler and keep trekking on until coming home for Thanksgiving where there will be even more reunions, and more importantly, even more food!! Enjoy the rest of break, have safe trips back to school, and thanks for reading
P.S. I have an older brother. He isn’t not in the picture because we don’t love him, he is off at school at the University of Illinois so he wasn’t there when it was taken!
