Praise Cthulhu! The school year is over. No more mindless busywork, no more mind-bogglingly absurd and menial tasks to perform for every thick-skulled neanderthal who can't find the 'any' key on their keyboard. No more grades to forge, no more tests, no more homework. But most importantly, nobody with moistened cereal for brains being able to tell me what they think I can do, be they jocks or faculty. Well, except two of them. Actually, scratch the part about busywork. If I can find a job, I can at least get paid for busywork, not to mention get out of the house and away from the parental units. Can probably "convince" Frank to give me something to do at the shop. Current Mood: restless
It's about this time of year I hear a lot of crap about "goodwill towards men" and "peace on earth", ad nauseum. There was even this dork at school the other day trying to go on about it, but apparently he lost his cue cards. I think I hear Darwin calling. Anyway, it got me thinking. You know what this season means to me? Ten dollars from "dear ol' granmum", some random gift certificates, and sweaters
. I swear, if I get one more fdisking sweater (or tube socks), I'm going to literally go insane. If it weren't for holiday discounts, and liberal return policies of questionable ethicality at some stores I know, I'd hate this season completely. And the next person to bring up "spending time with family" gets locked in a room with my parental units and a week's worth of vodka, beer and cigarettes. I'm not kidding. Current Mood: pissed off
you know, I hate how commerialized christmas has become. it really used to be about something, like family and togetherness and good will between everyone and good deeds and things. when I think about it, I get a warm happy feeling you know, like its just a time full of life and vibrance and for just a moment everything can be good in the world. but instead, I open my eyes and I see commercials for toys that no one needs and people keep saying that christmas is all about the gifts and giving and money and jewelry and everything. but its not. its about celebration of joy and life, not money and material things.
