turkey day!

thanksgiving is finally here! its kinda depressing in a way thou cause for me it marks the closure of a year gone by. before you know it its christmas than new years. for thanksgiving this year we went to my aunts house down in Barnegat New Jersey, about a 2 hour drive from my house. it was nice to see everyone though. the food was really good too. im not much of a turkey fan, but the stuffing and the pies were delicious. after we ate, me and my cousin james and my brother decided to take a walk in the woods. by this time it was about 5:30, so it was getting really dark. we were just walking and talking, when my clumsy self walked into a ditch and sprained my ankel. my ankles are weak to begin with because of years of karate so it was sometihng that ive delt with before. so basicly my thanksgiving started out great, and ended, well, with an injured ankle. so thats how my thanksgiving went.

this week

this week has been pretty good. the usual rushing of work and papers makes the week just fly by. i cant wait to come back home next week for thanksgiving, and get to see everyone. since ive been here ive been missing my friends alot. you dont realize how much you miss your friends untill you dont see them all the time. too bad the break is onnly a week long:( but oh well. this week was also the dance, which was okay. im not a big dancer mmyself but my roommate kinda made me go so i went. the glow in the dark theme was pretty cool with all the glow stick and such. it was pretty fun thou.

Back home

This weekend, i decided to head back to jersey and come home for the weekend. even though i only live 45 minutes away in central jersey,i dont usually go home too often. it felt so good to be back home, where i know where everything is and can actually drive places. i think thats one of the things i miss the most, my car. i never thought i would miss my car. i think its because of the fact that if you need to go somewhere you cant just hop in your car and go, cause you dont have one. but anyway, it was so nice going back home since i havent been back in at least a month. on saturday we had a party for my grandpa who was turning 80, so i got to see all my cousins, uncles, and aunts. it was really nice to see them and hear what theve been all up to while iv'e been away at college. then on sunday i got all my shopping done and got to see my old horse Cody. Cody is a palomino quarter horse that i have been leasing for the past 3 years, but unfortunatelly i had to stop leasing him because i was going off to college. it was so nice to go see him again because as soon as i walked up to the fence he came right up to the fence to see me. it really brought a sense of comfort that no matter how long you've been away, your home is still your home.
