This week has been full of papers and job application deadlines. I’ve been so busy with my current job, and I had to write two papers for school, and a paper for the JET application, so it was a hectic week.
Also, don’t hurt me but, I’ve already started my Christmas present shopping. I got my adopted grandma a fancy cheese and cracker combo set! It looks really yummy, and she’s from Wisconsin so I think she’ll really enjoy it.
(look at how precious my wrapping is! I’ve had this wrapping for three years, and it’s finally starting to run out. but yes, behold the fruits of my labor, and that’s not even a dent in all the gifts I need to collect…)
I hate present shopping, I’m always torn between getting something cute and useless, or getting something functional. Or, if I should just get people food or not, because what if they don’t like the present I got them? You can’t go wrong with chocolate and sweets! Or cheese and crackers in my family’s case lol.
I’m still waiting until Black Friday to buy the bulk of my gifts, but it was fun to get out and see what’s on the market. Plus, I went with a friend, and we made a day of it. The only problem was the dark! We let her house at 1pm, and got back around 5pm, but it felt closer to 7pm due to the weather. I was tired when I got home that I just went to bed and watched the latest episode of While You Were Sleeping, but I didn’t do anything that strenuous.
Oh, and the snow is back. It snowed on 10/23, and then it disappeared, but now it’s here to stay. The roads are awful, honestly Anchorage doesn’t take very good care of the roads because they spent their budget elsewhere. Last year they told us they had to either cut the police force or the road upkeep, and really this is Alaska. What did they think was more important than the road upkeep??
Ai. Anyway, I got new glasses! I had nerd glasses in the past, but now I have these cute granny glasses. I really wanted circle glasses, like the ones in snapchat filters, but they didn’t have any in the store I went too. Alaska is so behind on the times, I just wanted to be a stylish nerd, but now I’m a stylish granny. Which, I’m not that mad about, but you know…
