I've had a bit of a busy week. This week is finals week and I am so tired! Last week started working on my research paper( which I had a little more than a month to work on, I know horrible!) so I hardly got any sleep this weekend! I had work all weekend and it was such crappy shifts. All I wanted to do was finish my paper and show it to my professor the following day so I could turn it in error free on Thursday! So today I finished my paper, drove to school and had my professor go over it. Overall a well written paper! I am so happy I got this out of my way so I can get everything else I need to do done.

We finally finished decorating my house! It looks super cute. I love that my Mom still has ornaments that my sister and I made when we were kids. My favorite ornaments would have to be the ones I brought back from my trip to Europe 3 years ago, Especially the one from Paris but I just found out that one broke so now I'm a little upset,haha.

I finished most of my Christmas shopping! I only have my Dad's gift left and he is so hard to shop for. I never know what to get him. I think I'm going to get him a a nice dress shirt for work. He is always having business meetings so I figure he can never have enough dress shirts! I really hope everyone loves their Christmas presents. I pride myself in being a great gift giver. What I hope even more is that Christian likes his present, he's been nothing but great so he deserves a nice present. I spent a lot on Christmas gifts, which I don't care, but now I am broke so I can't afford to buy presents for my friends. I was thinking of baking them some little Christmas goodies! I think I am. :]

Christian is leaving to Florida next Monday to spend the Holidays with his parents. He won't be back till New Years Day, which makes me sad that I won't be spending these days with him but I completely understand. I know how much he misses his family so it also makes me happy that he will be there having a good time with his family! I will miss him a lot, but it is only 11 days so it's not bad at all. The last time he left for the east coast he was gone for a month! So 11 days is really nothing. I will keep myself very busy while he is gone, that is for sure.

I'm so glad school is almost over. I can't believe I have one full semester left and then I transfer out! PCC has been good to me, and I've changed, and gone through so much during my time there but it really is about time to transfer out. I can't wait to start taking courses that I like at CSULA. I get to take my last winter course at PCC and that is only 6 weeks long! Then I'm taking Statistics and a cycling class for spring semester. I am excited for that, and to finally be on my way to getting my BA.

Hope all is well and that you all have your Christmas shopping done! :]

Friday I worked 2-cl, before that I went tot he gym. I was just too tired so I decided to stay in, I shouldn't be spending money right now. I have to buy Christmas presents!

Saturday was a fun day. Christian came over to my house around 11am and we went to Peach Cafe in Old Town Monrovia to grab brunch. Food was delicious as always! I had the Peach Omelet, which had lots of yummy veggies in it! It came with a fruit bowl and home made corn bread(i lovee corn bread). Christian got the bacon and eggs with toast and breakfast potatoes, looked good as well. Everything there is so fresh, one of my new favorite cafes. After brunch, we headed off to Ikea. I needed a new bookshelf since I lost my little shelves on the inside of my closet when we remodeled my room last month. Found one on sale, so I bought it! Christian built it for me, so awesome, and it looks super cute in my room. We watched a movie at my place for a bit, and then he took off since he had dinner plans with one of his friends. When he left, I got ready for my uncles 30th birthday party! It was lots of fun. There was a taco man, I had some of those, they were so amazingly good! There was a lot of drinks as well but I only had a couple because I was driving. They also bought a pinata for him filled with little alcohol bottles, in bubble wrap, super funny! And he had a band playing! Overall a good time with my family. After the party, I went over to Christians. It has been so cold here in Southern California lately! I love it. So we cuddled all night and watched some movies. Perfect day all in all.

On Sunday I woke up superrrrr late! I didn't even think I was that tired. I got up, cleaned my room and took a shower. I had the day off so my parents wanted to grab some dinner. We ended up at Mako, our favorite sushi place to go! Hands down the best sushi ever. We've been going there for years. I got my usual and had some drinks with my parents. After, we went to the Santa Anita Mall in Arcadia to do some Christmas shopping! I'm so glad that I know what I'm getting Christian. I had no clue as to what to get him until Saturday. It's a secret though. ;]
After the mall we went to Target to get Christmas lights! I can't wait to to decorate my house! We're cutting it short.

My favorite roll from Mako! Spicy Scallop cut roll with shrimp tempura and avocado on soy paper, yum:

So that was my weekend! Hope you all had a great one as well!

Woke up a little late today, but I did find my book! I was so relieved. I had already read half of it, so I just finished the rest in a jiff. Then, I got ready for class and drove off to Pasadena. Class went great, got an A on my quiz so I was pretty happy. I had no real plans today, but Christian called me and asked if I wanted to grab dinner and watch Fantastic Mr. Fox. I said yes of course!
So we met up in Alhambra and got sushi and drank hot sake for a bit. Then we walked to the theater.

I really enjoyed the movie! I had a smile on my face from the beginning. So if you haven't seen it yet, go and see it! Typical Wes Anderson movie, obviously I know the movie is based on Roald Dahl's book, but I love Wes Anderson, so awesome movie! I have to get up early to run some errands before work! Working 2-cl again,blah. Hope all is well!

tuesday and wednesday

I went to bed on Monday night a little upset, it just sucks when you feel a little left out sometimes...I woke up in an okay mood Tuesday morning. Then, I got super upset because I felt like it was all a big joke to certain people when I was genuinely upset that I did not get invited somewhere. I know, maybe I was being a little silly but I felt like a text would have been suffice. I'm over it now, I always get over things. After I stopped being upset, I hit the gym. I got home and I felt a little better, decided to skip class because I did not feel like driving all they way to school to be there for just one hour. We go in later on Tuesdays...

Christian and I had a diner/movie date that night but that ended up not happening. He got out of work a little late, so we decided to have a movie night at his house instead and order Thai. It was a perfect night! Watched a couple of post-apocalyptic films, I have to for my Eng Class, and then watched some Alfred Hitchcock Presents. I love how we can just lay in bed and have the best time ever. I think I like those nights the best, the ones where we just stay in and cuddle and talk. He makes me so happy. So that was my Tuesday!

Wednesday turned out to be a longg day. I got up early and worked out, then I prepared my lunch for work and then I headed off to work 2-cl. It has been sooo slow lately, it's not fun. My shift felt like it took forever to end, and I was just so tired for some reason. I've been feeling insanely tired lately and I have no idea why. Anyway, I got home around ten or so, and relaxed for a bit. Now it's a little past midnight and I really should be finishing this book for my Eng class but I can't find it anywhere in my house. I'm a little nervous since I do have a quiz tomorrow. Hopefully I can do a better job of finding it tomorrow morning. I don't have class til 3:15! Good luck to me.

After an intense work out! My legs and butt are killing me. :>
Showing off my outfit at work!

Have a good Thursday!
