Winter break: the perfect excuse to do nothing but sit around, read, sleep and eat which is exactly how I’ve spent the past week.
I’ve finished 3 books and started 3 more. Unfortunately I still haven’t gotten through Game of Thrones though with all the boobs and sex, you’d think I’d finish rather quickly (winky).

I learned two things at the Asian party at my house last night: it’s extremely awkward to have a pastor in your house when you haven’t gone to church in over a year and I mother fucking kick ass at Just Dance.
Maybe this is what being retired is like. And if it is why the hell are old people so cranky? I mean you get all this time to do whatever the hell you want and you don’t have to worry at all about the future. You can even go to North Korea just for kicks and giggles (which one of my old teachers did do right after she retired). I’d be one of those secretly awesome old people. I’d act all senile and angry at the world but when the yonions aren’t around, I’d be playing video games and otherwise rocking out all day. Man I just can’t wait to be
