All I want for Christmas

Last night I drove to Hana's new house in Valencia, because we have a tradition of seeing a movie together on Christmas Eve. Only it turns out Valencia is the worst and all the movie theaters close super early so we just drove over to Pyramid Lake for a bit of stargazing. Her eight-year-old brother Michael didn't want me to stay over because "Christmas should just be family".

"Arielle is family. I've known her longer than I've known you," Hana retorted. "Does that mean that you shouldn't be here?"

Michael woke us up at 7:30 this morning, yelling WAKE UP WAKE UP IT'S CHRISTMAS IT'S CHRISTMAS SANTA BROUGHT PRESENTS.

"But he only brought me two presents this year," he added in a more normal tone of voice. "Last year he brought five!"

"Yeah, okay, whatever, Dudley Dursley," Hana and I respond in unison.

Hey there, Mr. Blue, we're so pleased to be with you

My winter break has been fabulous so far, but I haven't really been able to write about it. Los Angeles had the biggest rainstorm on record, but this morning I awoke to bright winter sunlight streaming through my window and it was the most wonderful thing I could think of right then. And then we played Quidditch.

It's already been looking like Christmas for, like, three weeks

My roommates love decorating.

The final frontier

I'm done with one final, and I have one tomorrow at 8 a.m. (UGH), and then two more on Friday. I am already so sick of looking at my computer screen that I want to stab myself in the eyes with chopsticks.

I'm at the library studying (this is super weird for me, I always study at home) with my friend Margaux and she is diligently writing shit down on note cards while I just play sudoku puzzles online. I know I should probably do some more studying, but I feel like there's not that much more for me to write. I think I'm just really lazy and she's just really thorough.

Also she just gave me a piece of poundcake. She is the best ♥
