Did you have a Merry Christmas?

Merry Christmas! (though its a couple days after) Did you have a nice Christmas? New Years is coming up too so be sure to have a Happy New Year also!

I got an Insignia Video MP3 Player for Christmas… It is totaly awesome! I have a ton of songs on it already and a bunch of music videos ^_^. I also got 4 Xbox games from my sister Jamie, a great book from my other sister Cora… Gift cards from Mom, Dad, Grandma… a conversational Japanese book… and…

My wonderful Grandma got me “The Sound of Music” DVD and Soundtrack CD. (Haha, you might call me a dork, but thats my favorite musical EVER!!!!) So I’m really happy about  that!

Anyway~ Enough about Christmas. Since I didn’t get a computer for Christmas (hah~ In my dreams) I deleted the majority of my stuff on our computer down in the basement. Thats the computer that is infamous for being crappy, old, and slow. I got about 50% free space on one of the hard drives *gasp* so I asked my dad If we could get it running faster, if I could get the Admin Privs back so I can start playing jMS again!!! WOOOT

Hopefully? 🙂

Saturday, Sunday… then Monday!

Christmas is almost here! I’m counting the days. So excited. What sucks though is that It hasn’t been snowing here at all yet. (It did snow two times… and only once did the snow lay. But that was about a month ago :/).

Wow… I don’t have anything to write about :/ grr.

Oh wait…. Duh theres TONS of stuff to talk about. Yesturday was an awesome day (Thursday that is). That was the day that my school had their Blood Drive. The Central Blood Bank people came and I wanted to give blood! I never gave blood before so I was really nervous. Not because of the needles or anything, but just because I was mostly excited about actually giving blood. I was also afraid that they wouldn’t let me give blood, because maybe lack of ID (I don’t have my Drivers Licence, pasport, or blood doner card), or maybe I didn’t have enough Iron or something wierd like that. I went down to my school’s gym at about 9:00 and waited with some of my friends.

When they first called me, I had to go behind a blue screen thingy to get my finger pricked and my blood pressure taken. The cool thing was that the lady who did all that plays World of Warcraft! It was so much fun talking to her about it. She said she had several level 60 characters and one of them was like Tier 2 or Tier 3 (I forget which one). Ok~ Either way I’m probably starting to sound a little nerdy. After that I went back to sit with my friends and waited to be called the second time. Then a few minutes later I got to pick a “bed” to sit/lay at so I did. Shortly before I got to sit down, my friend Nicole was about to give blood. This was the only sad part of my day.

Nicole was nervous the whole time about it hurting and whatnot. The lady who was getting her blood missed her vain so it hurt Nicole a lot :/. I felt so bad for her. And at first Nicole wasn’t giving blood very much, so the lady had to adjust the needle 😦 So sad… Good thing Leanna and I were there to hold her hand :(… Anyway I was sitting on the bed for about 20 minutes before anyone came and started the whole “procedure”. (They really were slow) It didn’t hurt much at all. I felt the pinch when they put the needle in and it stung a little bit, but then the stingging went away, but I could still feel the needle there :/. It just tingled… haha

Anyway~ about 10 minutes or so (Not really sure…) and I was finished giving blood…. though noone came to finish me 😦 I waited and waited… Then finally someone comes and takes the blood pouch thingy away, though they leave the needle in me x.x And I’m sitting there for about 10 more minutes before someone comes and takes the stupid needle out. I was like “Finaly! Its over!”. And it pretty much was! It was an exciting experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat 🙂

Anyways~ after I gave blood I went up to one of my teacher’s room for the rest of the day and played Halo 2 and Warcraft 3. It was much fun. After school, my friends and I went to Double Dragon, then back to Krista’s house to watch a movie. It was fun hanging out with my friends.

Ok welp… That was pretty much the end of my day! What an eventfull day~

About 5 more days!

Just a quick update~

5 more days till Christmas! Is anyone else excided as much as I am? I really can not wait.

Nothing much that I want for Christmas~ Though I probably won’t get very much at all anyway… I did want an iPod, but I changed my mind after I found out that you can get recertified (kinda like used) computers for really cheap. I found one that suits my needs for under 200$… Its just about the same kind of computers that my school uses (the newer ones) :/ It would be so awesome to have my own computer. I could put Maplestory on it… Even Japanese Maplestory (Which I have been dieing to play for like 3 months now). My friend Tom said that he would even lend*(not the right word?) me his graphics card and RAM and let me pay for them when I can get the money (aka: He is selling them to me!).

*Snap back to reality* Wow… I can really hope and wish that my parents would get me a computer for Christmas… anything over 100$ to them is pretty much a No :/ So I’ll never really know if they get me one or not untill that day… *sigh*

Meww~~~ Anyway… Still excited about Christmas? Heck yeah!
