beating around the bush

so it's snowing here...... i can't remember the last time i appreciated a snowfall. i normally don't like precipitation of any kind, but gosh darn it, these days i'll take anything that's not rain!! it hailed on friday too... woke me up in the wee hours of the morning. anyway, H made a snowman at around 1am last night and i struck a pose with the handsome fellow.

i miss a lot of things back home. i miss my boots... the goretex army ones that keep water out. i miss my winter jacket. i miss having more socks to choose from in my drawer. i miss my bunnie. i miss large doses of sunlight. i miss (i can't believe i'm saying this) the TTC and the fact that it runs past 7pm. i miss driving. i miss homecooked meals. i miss my guitar. i miss... having power?! man, those two days without it were rough. luckily A bought a headlamp to light up our dark basement.

one piece of advice i would give to students who are tight on cash: don't. gain. weight. don't try to save a few pennies by buying food that's less nutritious for you because it'll eventually end up around your midsection and then you'll have to dish out more cash to get yourself new clothes that you can actually breathe in and don't cut off your circulation. of course, if you do manage to maintain your weight... don't go to the mall, period. now, if you wanna lose some of the weight you've gained, get H to cook you up an adventurous dish or two that'll guarantee to mess up your appetite ;) now, once you're able to stomach what it is you're actually eating, this method won't work for you anymore because believe it or not, these dishes are quite yummy!

aiy... in all honesty, it's been a really tough semester for me in sooo many ways. and it still is. God, help me to face all of it.

costco is dangerous. once you go in, it's almost impossible to come out empty-handed... you suddenly find yourself bombarded with a million items that you never knew you needed in bulk until that very moment... for example, a box of chocolates... or two... or three... or...

yah :P

my roommates, A and H

on the side... a lot of things are up in the air right now. for one, i may not go home for the holidays this year... and i'm not so sure how the next semester will play out. please pray for me if you can.
