I know everyone says this every year, but really, where did the time go? Serious question. Where is it hiding? Why does it go by so quickly? How did it go from January to December in the blink of an eye? Perhaps we think there are 24 hours in a day, but in reality, we’re being robbed. I remember days that used to feel endless. I remember school feeling like it would never end, and wishing time would hurry up so that it would be Christmas. It was agony. What happened? Why, time…why? You shouldn’t short-change us. That’s so rude.
I can’t believe I’ll be in Puerto Rico later this week. I know I’m leaving, but I don’t feel like it’s real yet. I’m excited about seeing my grandparents and my cousin. I have way more family over there but we don’t really keep in touch so…whatever. I feel bad spending Christmas away from my parents two years in a row, though. I don’t want them to feel like I’m abandoning them. My boyfriend always want to spend Christmas in Puerto Rico. Christmas in Puerto Rico means lots of parties, and he’s definitely a party person. I can’t blame him, especially considering that he moved here for me. Lord knows he wouldn’t be living in Jersey otherwise. Plus, who wants to freeze their butt off when they can enjoy 80-degree weather in December?
I’ll probably post one more time this week before leaving. Ahhh! Hopefully that post will be more interesting than this pointless one. I have some last-minute things to do before leaving. And I should really try to leave this apartment as clean as possible. Yeah, I really should. I should probably also make a list of things to pack. I have a beautiful new suitcase (thanks, Mom!) that I almost don’t want to use…because it’s beautiful. And airport people don’t give a rat’s ass about people’s suitcases. They THROW them, they drag them, they get them all dirty, and they don’t care. My poor suitcase. I almost want to travel with nothing, and just buy everything in Puerto Rico. But that would be silly, right? Or, hmm…
Quick side note. THANK YOU to Lily of Lily in Canada for nominating me for the Blog of the Year award. Also, THANK YOU to John of Every Useless Thing for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blog award. I planned on doing a real awards post and nominating all you lovely people, but I ran out of time sooo…maybe next year. But thanks to you both! I think all my readers deserve to be nominated. It might take a little while, but I’ll get around to doing a real awards post. Anyway, hope you all have a lovely week.
