So Bored That I Made A Video

As a result of being bored yesterday, I decided to fix up a video that I had taken in April of the missionaries burning their clothes. It probably wasn't the wisest idea to make a fire pit on our concrete slab...we got in trouble for this later from our land lord.

Why is it that I've been wishing for this moment for so long (to be done school and have time to relax) and now suddenly I'm bored. I need something to do! Preferably something Christmasy!

I watched "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town" yesterday, one of those old stop-motion movies they made back in the day that I still love...I even started crocheting an afghan that I'm thinking I probably won't finish. I don't really feel like I'm accomplishing anything...at least I made chocolate chip cookies yesterday.

Does anyone have any IDEAS?

Christmas Vacation Project

Since today was my last day of classes (HOORAY!), I've decided to start up a few projects.

First of all, I want to read books, not textbooks or journal articles, but REAL books. I borrowed a stack from my mom went I went to visit my parents this weekend and I hope to get
a large chunk of them read. Hopefully this will include the 7th Harry Potter since I barely remembered anything from it when I went to see the movie.

Second, I want to make something winter chic...like a hat or a scarf or something. I can either knit or crochet it, the trick is just finding a pattern that I can understand. I usually like to do something while I'm watching movies or tv so I could multi-task and watch all my Christmas movies in the process! Yay!

By the way, if anyone has some patterns that I could use, it would be greatly appreciated. ;)

Third, I want to do nothing. This sounds opposite to everything I just wrote but while I'm not studying or doing homework, I just want to chill and collect my inner Zen. Ahhhhhhh. Can't wait.

Happy Holidays!
