last meal of the year is a hotpot at home paired with a canucks win against the oilers. there’s no party for me this year; i just wanted to lay low and let christmas eve be as mellow as possible. i’m so done with all these feasts and drinking fests, this will be the last of the holiday craziness. i’ve been feeling tired the past two days but i’m not sure why i don’t sleep in during my holiday, maybe it’s the workaholic in me

friday night exec party that had a lot of bubble tea, a fridge full of liquor and enough food to serve a village. it was a rdl bonder and a chance for seasoned execs to get to know the new execs. it’s meant to be a party, but we still had an agenda and basic housekeeping things to go through. we started off watching some playoff footage while eating. then the discussion took most of the night before the gaming and drinking began

treated to a lunch by my student because she wanted to give me a christmas present but didn’t know what to buy. it was very sweet of her but i’m happy to take her out. i made her make sure there’s no onions and no green onions in my dish. it’s bizarre she’s so scared of me, yet she likes me and always wants to hang out with me. that logic is puzzling, but i must be doing something right

a good day doing mostly the things we enjoy like watching midget hockey and wishlist shopping before a pig out and a quick stop to admire the christmas tree at mcarthurglen. i didn’t cross off anything on my shopping list but he found good deals on what he was looking for. just taking advantage of our time off during the holidays¬†and soaking in the festive season while we can

i’m disappointed there’s so little belief in me and although it doesn’t take anything away from my ability, it bugs me more than i show it. it sucks to be looked upon with double standards because some just can’t accept the fact that girls can have the same abilities. i guess it’s all about their egos. i can’t control what others choose to believe, but i can control what i can do. i’ll still keep pushing forward like always

christmas day crept up so quickly. the holiday season is an amazing time to socialize, relax, shop, soak in the festive spirit, and most importantly spend time with people you love and cherish. i often wish there’s more opportunities to communicate with my family more. i try, but sometimes i just don’t try hard enough. this might be the season that matters most so i’m promise to try a little from here on. merry christmas and happy holidays to all
