Here’s to hoping your Christmas was filled with light!
This morning my mom came into my room and said, ‘Can you please stop sleeping with that thing? It creeps me out.’ I don’t understand….
Wow.. we are all totally still here
— Sandy, because me, her, and Sarah Lee are still sitting in our apartment in Berkeley watching Anastasia on the 21st of December
Although my roommates had to drag me out of bed at 3:30 AM for our first ever Room 301 Christmas Extravaganza, I can say in retrospect that it was totally worth it.
One highlight of our party included opening two gift boxes from Ryan Loong… only to find that they were empty. We were peeved until we realized that he probably filled them with love and prayers, and then we became amazed at their symbolism and were deeply moved.
Another highlight was taking this picture. We are throwing some of our stocking stuffers in the air, and maybe it’s a good thing they are blurry because seeing them clearly might make you uncomfortable.
(Note: please enjoy Eunice’s expression of awe and wonderment)
Merry Christmas y’all, live in the holidays with people you love!
Yesterday my mom and I visited our (or probably just my) home away from home— Santana Row. It is a fake outdoor European shopping arena and I am in love with it.
However, our most recent trip was marked by an unusual amount of emotional turmoil and highs and lows. Let me explain
Curiousity: as I noticed a mass of people lined up to see some sort of spectacle/production
Awe and amazement: as I tapped some girl on the shoulder and she told me the spectacle/production was RACHAEL RAY SIGNING COOK BOOKS
Pride: as I captured some quality action shots of her on my phone from a distance
Excitement: as we stood in line to buy 4 boxes of macaroons from a bakery which shall remain unnamed
Frustration: as a woman who shall remain unnamed refused to give us the macaroons with a later expiration date
Anger: as we paid for the inferior macaroons and I thought about the situation more
Awe and amazement (again, but stronger this time): as I watched my mother turn back around, stand up for herself, and demand firmly yet politely that we receive better customer service!
Victory: as unnamed lady exchanged our macaroons for fresher and thus more delicious ones
Santana Row, you certainly took me for a ride! I’ll be back soon
