Sleigh bell rings, can you hear them?

Today I feel accomplished. I had brunch with the girls at Moxie's (mmm banana pancakes!), had a mini-makeover at the Lancome makeup counter (made off with some goodies) and did some 3-hour studying at the library. Yep, I've got it together.

I was walking through the mall and I realized I've got to start Christmas shopping soon. I can't believe we're nearing the end of October already and heading into November! The school semester is almost half done! Yikes. Where did time fly?

Actually I can't wait for the semester to end. Not that it was a bad semester (yet) but I look forward to the holidays: dinners with friends, snowboarding, ski/board getaway in Waterloo, unscheduled holiday surprises...

I'm not usually too crazy about the snow and cold weather here in the tropical trenches of Canada but I think this year I'll be a little less bitter about the weather. Although I still love the summer blistering heat, I'll give Old Man Winter weather a chance. Afterall, I resolved to be a less bitter, right?

Speaking of my resolutions I made at the end of the summer, let's see how I've faired..

-have a more positive outlook on life and just everything in general check (at least I'm trying to)

-don't sweat the small stuff check (I've actually learned to not care about alot of things including things I should be caring about)

-budget better >_< umm...can I justify spending $40 on makeup?

-don't take on responsibilities you know will bite you in the ass later on down the line, let other ppl do it (like planning trips!) check (somewhat)

-travel more (alot of places I really wanna travel to are either being bombed, flooded or terrorized) haven't had time yet, we'll see.

-less 'tude, more dude check (I hope)

-study harder (yeah, I threw that one in cuz I always say that although it never works) hmm, we'll see, so far so good so: 1/2 check

-be more independent, generous and a good role model check (a little here, a little there)

I also want to add "be an advocate" and "make an attempt to exercise". Yours truly is packing on the bulge, ever since Thanksgiving.

Okay time to make myself scarce.

I was just thinking the other day that I need to starting thinking about my resolutions. I think I need your help. It appears that I have done a lot of thinking about this...but I really haven't, lol. I thanked you in my blog. I'll thank you here, too, Lil. I'm glad I have you to text-message to any time of the day, hehe.
