If you aren't in high school, college, or super lucky, then you don't get a month and a half off for Christmas break. Most people, myself included, have to work Christmas Eve. Bummer. But I was off at 1:30 and off until Monday (today). It's been a great break, but didn't start off that way.
On Christmas Eve, there was a shooting at the mall that the boyfriend works at. Holy hell what a way to ruin my day. All I wanted for Christmas when I got that call, was for him to get home safely--which he did. With all of that aside, we were able to enjoy the rest of our night with my family. I had a wonderful Christmas filled with the most thoughtful gifts and surrounded by everyone that I love. Santa didn't disappoint either!
While on this mini break, my high school class had a reunion. It's hard to believe that I graduated high school almost five years ago. Most people dread "class reunions" or class get togethers, but with my ex-high school class (is that a thing?) these "reunions" are actually pretty great. I think it's fun + interesting to see where everyone is in their lives. Someone did some math: about 1/8 of our graduating class is married. Wait..We are still 17 right?
Anyways...We had the best time. A few broken wine glasses (my fault), spilled gumbo (also my fault), and a failed attempt at cow tipping (PRO TIP: cows don't actually tip over), and I was ready to call it a night.
Monday morning came a bit early for me, but I'm ready for my next mini break: New Years!
