I didn’t go to the hospital Christmas party last year and probably won’t go this year either. Last year I at least considered it since I was close to my coworkers. I know I got a card about it in the mail this year but I didn’t pay attention so I’m not even sure what day it is lol
I mean, I'm not that close to my co-workers and I still went! Then again, it's kind of a "but thou must" sort of dealio, as much as I would've preferred just not going, lol

Idk, Christmas is more of a holiday for close friends and family for me that might be part of why I don’t go lol. Going to be having my annual winter hotpot with my friends from high school late this month though that’ll be fun!

Christmas parties are my jam! Expecially when they occupy time in school where I'd normally need to be productive. :)

What kind of school has Christmas parties? You should be studying and working hard, not partying!

I've not long started at my job (and it's killing me already) so no Christmas party for me. Especially since I got this job through an agency, and I've been there for just over 3 weeks and I've only been paid for 1 week so far :p the amount of back-and-forth I've had to have with the agency is ridiculous.

I do have the Thursday and Friday of Christmas week off though, and the potential to leave at 1 on Christmas Eve, so there is that at least.

Christmas is literally the one day of the year where my work is closed the entirety of the day. They close at 6 on Christmas Eve and reopen 7 AM on the 26th. It's likely to be barren then, haha. But I'll be in Penn State come Christmas day, anyway! They do special things for the holiday but nothing overly fancy.

idk, maybe people just don't feel like talking or something. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm on break now from work, free until Jan. 2. It feels really ****ing great tbh. Of course, things are off to an exciting start as I bought a new vehicle on Friday. Definitely going to miss my current vehicle though, it's served me well over the past 3 years.

I've been sick and it's been overall a very rough week for me. I had two finals plus a take-home final, and I don't think I got an A in any of those courses. AFAIK I passed my fourth course (pass/fail only) but grades are finalized on Monday so guess we'll see then. It feels so nice to be done with this quarter but I'm already dreading next quarter of classes too.

@~Kilza~ what sort of vehicles did you get/have? :O

oof, I hope you feel better Revan! Hopefully your grades are better than what you expect!

As for your question, I had a 2013 Ford Escape, which I got used, and now I'm trading it in and getting a 2018 Ford Escape, which was a demo vehicle.

@Tap Haha, yeah that's this time of year, and me wondering what kind of gift to get my brother. Or my sister and her family.

@~Kilza~ Hope you enjoy the new car! The 2013 model is the one that I have and has held me up good for the last three years.

@Revan Aw sorry to hear that. Hope you feel better! I know that post-finals tension is real. Wishing you the best for the next quarter, t though!

Whenever I know I've got a break coming up, I always see it as a time when I've got nothing on my plate, so I can take all the time in the world to slow down, relax, and then catch up at my own pace. Of course, that never actually seems to happen, and my days get filled with stuff to do. I'm taking a lot of time tonight to catch up on Marri stuff, so here I am.

I went on an adventure today. Two friends of mine invited me to go see a performance by the Washington Chorus at the Kennedy Center. That involved me driving to a metro station, parking there, taking the metro into the city, and then taking a shuttle from the station to the Center. Fun times. Also it was raining, but not too much.

If I ever get Smash Ultimate, I really want to try and main either Ridley, Snake, or K. Rool. They all look awesome :)

I don't have that much intention to get Smash Ultimate, but I'm likely to get it eventually just because. I could go on about how I always keep wanting to play other games but just don't get around to it. x_x

But in the meantime I did buy a gift today for my brother for our gift exchange. My sister's husband is getting mine, and I talked to them about Cedar Point and the holiday deals on their site. He said he thinks I'll be very pleased with what he got me, so that sounds promising!
