It’s about 2pm right now, and I just woke up. I may have gone to bed at six in the morning–I started watching a two-hour movie at four with my boyfriend, hah. It drives me crazy having such a weird sleep schedule and I’ve definitely been all over the place all week. I keep falling asleep in the evening and not being tired later as a result! Or I just wake up really late and then go to sleep really late that night.
I need to get back on a normal sleep schedule… by tomorrow, basically. My voice lesson, usually scheduled for 5pm on Tuesdays, has been moved to 10:30 Sunday morning this week. That’s tomorrow, oops. I also have an exam at 10:30am on Monday (I should start studying…) and I’m working 9am-5pm Tuesday. Why must life require important things to happen during the day? I don’t know.
I’m typing this in bed right now, but after I finish I will drag myself out and get in the shower. I want to go shopping for my mom and brother’s Chanukah gifts this afternoon, so I should probably be clean for that.
I keep calling it Christmas shopping. “I’m going Christmas shopping today!” I could say that if I was buying anyone a Christmas present, but I’m not. It’s all Chanukah, man. (I thought about buying Christmas presents for a couple friends, but I won’t be seeing them over the holidays, so nah.)
My brother pretty much knows what he’s getting, since I asked him what he wanted and he told me his headphones are broken. They “went down the shit hole”, to be exact. My mom doesn’t even know I’m buying her anything, so that will be nice. 🙂 I really do love giving people presents, especially when they’re going to be surprised. I asked for red leather or suede gloves from my mom back in October, so I’m fairly certain I’m getting those, and I wonder if it takes the fun out of it for my mom. Knowing her, it probably takes the headache out of it more than anything since she doesn’t have to worry about figuring out what the hell to get me. I’m a tricky one, me.
Have you done your holiday shopping yet, or are you incredibly late like me? I only have until 21 December as Chanukah starts the 20th and I’m going home from uni the night of the 21st. Are you even buying anyone anything? Do you tend to give gifts all year round–when I see something that makes me think of someone, I often buy it for them, no matter the season–or do you only give at Christmas time? Who are you shopping for this year? Inquiring minds want to know.
