The break went by way too fast, as usual, but I had a great time with my family nonetheless! Visiting home always makes me not want to go back to Jacksonville, but the only thing that’s keeping me motivated is that there are less than two weeks of this semester left. TWO WEEKS. Seriously, where has the time gone? I won’t complain too much though because I’ve been patiently waiting for this dreadful semester to end, and thankfully the end is near.
As I have for the past four years, I attended two Thanksgiving dinners on Thursday. I would have normally complained about having too much to eat, but I must say that I was definitely satisfied with both Thanksgiving dinners this year - mostly because I’ve missed home cooking so much!
We attended Aron’s family’s dinner first, as they usually have it pretty early.
And a few hours later, another turkey dinner at my house.
Obviously, we weren’t ready for the picture. But I think at this point, everyone just wanted to dig into their plates so this was our best shot lol.
I’m so thankful to be a part of two amazing families. <3
Gave my mom a manicure for her upcoming Christmas party 💅
I’m thankful for these two. 💕
Sometimes, being a single cat lady doesn’t seem all that bad. Just me and my million cats to worry about. Sounds good to me.
Initially, I began to write a rant post about how annoyed I am with Apple at their poor attempt to solve or address the wifi failure issues on the iPhone 4S…
But then I began to realize how much of a typical spoiled American I was starting to sound. Here I am complaining about a first world problem while the Philippines has lost SO much. It disgusts me to complain about such petty things when there are WAY more important things to worry about in life.
I am so devastated on how the typhoon has affected the Philippines. I dread seeing pictures of the aftermath on the news or online because it really breaks my heart. </3
I am SO grateful that my family over there is safe and didn’t get hit badly, but my heart still aches for those who have lost their homes and loved ones. This is just another reminder that we need not to be greedy and take advantage of the things that actually matter in life.

Calvin: If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently.
Hobbes: How so?
Calvin: Well, when you look into infinity, you realize that there are more important things than what people do all day.
