Merry Christmas

I woke up very early this morning, literally at about 5 am after my alarm clock finally went off after being broken for over a month. I didn’t want to be awake either, after the first 20 minutes I was like “uhhh….what the crap why am up so early”. Eleven-thirty is not an early bed time to me and I really wanted to get my 10 hours of holiday-coma induced sleep. Needless to say I haven’t gone back to sleep since 5 and I said so on my twitter haha. Two hours later my younger sister sprung awake and demanded to open her presents and so on. So all my sisters ended up waking up and wreaking havoc on all the presents my mom and I spent forever wrapping ‘from Santa’. It was really sweet in a home life sort of thing.

My mom’s presents for me – that I never got to see, how 7 years old – was a  therapeutic fountain and an LED flameless candle. I’m 17 not 70! What an insult, I’m not trying to sound you know ungrateful but my 12 year old sister got a fricken digital camera! I never got a camera unless it was handmedown and I didn’t get my first electronic device until I got a job and bought it myself. I wasn’t very angry before but writing about it now is really plucking at my nerves. Sigh. I’m just trying to tell myself that I am not disappointed and next Christmas will only be better.

Anyway, I’m chipping in to help buy my sisters a Wii. Aren’t I a doll? c: I guess I would be using it too, but I don’t really feel like they are going to let em call it mine as well. I’ll only be home for another 8 months and then it’s off to college. I’m excited about being in New York again but afraid of leaving my family. I’m not sure how I’ll take it. Since we moved from New York to Virginia I don’t have much family left up there and I’ll be pretty alone in Manhattan (God willing that I get into the school of my choice). It will take a lot of adjustment, I’m so used to my sisters and mother having not gone out a lot as a child and preferring home over anything. Ugh, need to change the subject. Now…

I’m starting the longest letter ever written by me to my sister, Gabrielle. It was her idea. She asked me to get a notebook and just start writing in it and send it to her for Christmas next year. She’s doing the same. I started today so that will be a full 52 weeks of entries to give to her. I might go over one book though, because one I start writing it takes me a while to stop. I’ve already wolfed down 3 pages today so I don’t know how long that book is going to last. I’m including pics and odd drawings in it haha. I’m such a kid about new projects and I tend to get a little eccentric with my ideas. Most people are like wtf Danielle but I do it anyway.

OHHH another exciting what’s it! There are so many sales going on tomorrow! My mom will get a chance to redeem herself and get me proper 17 year old “young woman” gifts. I want jeans and gloves and such. But with her already paying the difference on the Wii I don’t believe I’ll get much. I need to start on my psychology assignments and finishing my college essays due in 5 more days. I haven’t even touched a school book since I started vacation over a week ago. We’ll see how that goes, I’ll get writing.

Need Headphones!

leave a comment »

Self explanatory actually. I’m so tired of pressing my Sidekick (2008) to my ear in substitute of real headphones. That is not how I do music! I live it up close and personal blaring in my ears without outside interruptions. My mom says headphones will be apart of my Christmas present. Is she mad!? Why would I want some $8 headphones for a present? It’s just her being cheap. All the more reason why I had a job by now. I wont be buying any presents for anyone this year because of lack of funds. It’s aggravating…. this means I wont be accepting any presents either! It wouldn’t feel right to just receive. Sigh…

All that aside I succeeded in exempting all of my exams so I started break very early (adding three days) and did nothing. Over a month ago you would have heard me talking about going to New York for holidays and staying with my aunt and sister. Yup, that has changed. My mom basically decided that I can go anywhere I want when I graduate. Wow right. I mean I plan on moving back to New York as soon as I get my acceptance letter (hopefully) to one of those colleges (preferably one with full scholarship). I really get depressed when I think about how much my mother wants to control every aspect of my life. It’s because she is angry with my aunt about taking custody of my brother that she doesn’t want me to go up there. She’s asked me a million time whether or not I plan to invite my aunt and sister to my graduation. It’s ridiculous. I can care less that my aunt has my brother living with her now. He obviously didn’t want to live with us so why should my anger and life revolve around something you can’t change. That’s why I get so upset about moving far from my mom too. It’s a lose lose situation. If… no when I move back to New York I’ll basically be alone because my mom will be staying in Virginia. If I go to college in Virginia then I won’t be able to move back to the only state I love and then I love again. FML.
