Thanksgiving, Short Hair and Other Things

So Thanksgiving break has come and gone. It's hard to believe it's the last one of my undergraduate career... er... was the last one... Damn, time really does fly.

I had a lovely break, starting with seeing Cesca Friday night. It was my first time driving home alone, which was scary, but once I got there I got to hang out with my sister and my dad, which is actually one of my favorite things to do. Ever. I think we watched the Vampire Diaries and like 3 horror movies.

After some family time, I headed back with Cesca to Bonaventure for a couple of days, where we enjoyed Fakesgiving with her roommates (Emily is a vegetarian, so everything was meatless). Tofurkey is an interesting thing. Not bad, though. I attended some of Cesca's classes and got a multitude of stares, and then went to her Zumba class, where I even got to teach one of the songs with her, since I had shown her one from the classes I take and she really liked it! We had an excellent time hanging out with her grad school friends, who thankfully are awesome and like shows like Parks and Rec and Doctor Who. I met them last time I went, but it was nice to hang out a bit more with her friends and see what her life is like out there.

We spent Thanksgiving at an aunt's house who I haven't seen in ages, and it was nice to catch up with the family and chat about our lives, since now all of my cousins are in high school or above, so we actually can relate to each other. Despite the fact that I am 21, however, I did still have to sit at the kid table, though the lowest age there was like 15. Still amusing.

Aside from that, I did a lot of catching up this week, on sleep and on work. I also persuaded Cesca to catch up on my recent obsession, Once Upon a Time. If you don't watch, you should. It's awesome. I also went and got my hair cut. I got it cut a little shorter than I intended, but I think it looks cute and am really curious to see it curly, as I had my hairdresser straighten it to see the color. NERVOUS

In other news, I almost finished my Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) course, so there's that. Korea here I come (most likely!)

Lastly, drinking tea became more awesome than normal today, as I finally received my new Doctor Who mug!!!

Tea Time with the TARDIS. Yeah, I know I'm a dork

3.5 weeks left of the semester! Can't wait for Christmas break!!!

So Good

Just a quick update to show you pictures of our Sophia Grace and Rosie Halloween costumes:

Aren't we soooo cute?

My friend Daniel also dressed as Justin Bieber and since he and Sophia Grace and Rosie hung out on Ellen once I thought it was really perfect and had to get a picture with him

No wonder the girls in his psych class
think he should be in a boy band!
