"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be."

-Shel Silverstein



I can't believe I haven't posted anything in over a month! Since I haven't really been keeping up with my 365 days of pictures thing, I'm just going to say that this post constitutes Days 237 - 272 :)

*This past semester finally ended earlier on in the month, so since then, I've been home! It's pretty easy just to drive back and forth to work and I've been able to hang out with some friends that live at home so it's been a great situation :)

*Work has been crazy (part of the reason I haven't really updated)! The holidays bring out the worst in some people and I've dealt with really rude customers and with some crazy clothing situations. I think since I haven't ever worked retail during the holidays, I didn't know what to expect, so it has been a shock! Now, I know how to handle next Christmas if I'm still at Macy's!

*I found something out about my major that is very exciting! If I take a certain set of classes, I can go through with a Family Life Education certificate. After graduating, I will spend 2 years in a certain setting (a hospital preferably) and then I will have my official certificate. I think that's how it works! All I know is that it sounds perfect.

*SHOPPING...SHOPPING...SHOPPING...SHOPPING. Holy moly! I have done so much shopping in the past month it isn't even funny. It wasn't even all for Christmas! I really hope I can cut back soon or I won't have any money left! :)

*I haven't been reading that much so I'm still in the middle of the last book I posted about, Lost. It's the one that puts a twist A Christmas Carol and so far, it's okay. I can't really get into it, but I'll give it another 50 pages before I decide if I'm going to keep reading it. (P.S. I got the rest of the Harry Potter series for Christmas so I'll probably be reading those soon!)

*Bravo has become officially my favorite television station! Of course, I love all of the Real Housewives and Millionaire Matchmaker and now I have added Top Chef to the list. When I was sick the other day, I just stayed in bed and watched a marathon. It was so awesome! It was so cool to watch people create meals from things I would never think go together. I really don't think my TV has been on another channel.

*WE HAD A WHITE CHRISTMAS! For the first time since 1882 :) It started snowing about half way through the day and didn't stop until the middle of the night. FINALLY! It really completed Christmas :)

*Mom and I still haven't made final decisions for New York in March (hurry up already!!) but hopefully that will happen soon! When we finally make the decisions, I'll start booking all of the Broadway shows and the tours that we are going to be participating in...ahhhhhhh I can't wait!

*For Christmas and just for the heck of it, I have expanded my movie and TV collection so much! I have a lot of TV watching to do...I now have the entire Will & Grace series, the first season of Glee, the second season of True Blood, and the sixth season of Grey's Anatomy. I've also been watching 30 Rock and Dexter so I'll probably be picking those up soon :)

*By the way, I have had Mumford and Sons, Jason Aldean, and Adele playing on repeat. Their CD's are all amazing!

Ok, so that's enough of what's been happening with me for the past month! I'll try and catch up on everyone's blogs soon so expect some comments :) I hope everyone had a great Christmas and everyone has a safe and happy New Year!
