Let’s Start A Riot

Christmas felt strange this year. It didn’t feel very Christmas-y. In any case we made a lot of new traditions, for fun.

Daruma DollFirst off, we received Daruma dolls from Brian and Maggie so that we can make goals for ourselves. My goal is very long-term: pass MCATs and get into med-school. Everyone colored in one eye, and wrote their goal on the bottom of the cushion. They told the story of how 2 years and 4 months ago they wrote on the bottom of a Daruma doll to have a baby, and how they finally were able to. :] Nicenice. ♥

Anyway, my gifts:

+ Samsung HDTV 19″ (also as new computer monitor)
+ Lime Green Converse♥
+ Rocky DVD! (he’s my hero)
+ Silver heart bracelet
+ Anne Klein watch
+ Jamba Juice gift card
+ $30 Borders gift card
+ $20 Barnes&Noble gift card
+ $100 Hollister gift card

On Christmas Day (we celebrate at midnight on the eve) I bought:

— Crime and Punishment
— Girl, Interrupted
— The Burn Journals
— Death Note vol. 1+2
— The Metamorphosis
— Heart of Darkness

Ah, anyway… the adults drank this strange drink that Alba created with vodka. They then got a lighter and put the drink on fire. XD There were straws and they had to push the straw all the way to the bottom to drink it without burning themselves. Haha, it was funny. :] Here was Auntie Elle’s tree:

The picture was taken with my mobile, which I love! :] I made a new blog, a moblog. For now it’s a bit empty, but there I’ll make a mini layout for it and etc. (: Also, I want to make an mp3 blog like the ones featured on the very new program, Songbird. Get Songbird The program is still in beta, but hopefully soon it will replace iTunes (for me, anyway)!! Songbird automagically detects songs linked on the blog, and it’s also a browser. It’s made by Mozilla, same wonderful creators of Firefox. Give it a try!!

Today I woke up at 11am and Mom wanted to go our favorite Japanese restaurant, Suehiro, in Little Tokyo in Downtown LA. We ate our usual and then took a small walk to Marukai (Japanese market), and stopped by Kinokuniya (bookstore) very quickly. (: Fun fun!!
