Oh These Holiday Seasons…

Alrighty, so …I went to WalMart (and for those of you who know NOTHING about me, which I’m assuming is a lot of you,….I LOVE WalMart…It’s my happy place). Anyway, I went to my happy place thinking it was going to be like it always is. I was wrong. There was a Christmas tree set up just inside the doors. Christmas music was playing. Christmas candy was being sold. (I just read Earnest Hemmingway a few days ago so please forgive me if my sentences follow his iceberg theory.)

I’m a little confused. Didn’t we just have halloween? Shouldn’t all of the Halloween candy be on sale before the Christmas candy goes on the shelves? Why is all of this Christmas stuff out when it’s still the first week in November? We haven’t even had Thanksgiving!!  **There’s a question, why does WalMart praise Halloween, skip Thanksgiving, and promote the heck out of Christmas?** Why do people feel it’s okay to play Christmas music this early? I can see playing it around Thanksgiving as sort of a pre-game Christmas thing, but…there’s still 50 days until Christmas.

It sounds bad, but another thing I can’t stand is the people that stand outside the doors and ring their bells trying to get you to donate all of your extra cash to charity. I’m not harping on charities or saying that they’re just a waste of time but do the volunteers have to use bells? Do they have to abuse the bells? I’m telling you, nine times out of ten I’m sure people run through the doors, get their groceries and then run back out claiming they have no extra change because they can’t stand the sound of the bell. Hasn’t the Salvation Army figured out that they might get more donations if they armed their volunteers with something other and that annoying bell? You would think so, but every year they’re out there with the same tools, same santa costume, same red bucket. ….They’ll be coming soon too. Watch out.

So, What’s New?

Hiya! I’m in my history class and I have to look like I’m taking notes because the professor keeps looking at me. Oye. I’ve been up since 5am this morning in hopes of working on my extra credit paper for this class. I’ve got 1 3/4 pages so far (which is good because I’ve still got three more body paragraphs to write as well as the conclusion and it only has to be five pages long). I would be working on it now, but if I pulled out my book he would know that I’m not paying attention and I can’t have that. Lol.

My final for this class is Friday at the lovely hour of 8am. Whoopie for me. It’s my first college final, but at least I’ll get the worst one out of the way first. 🙂 After my history final I’ve got my mythology final and then I’m done for the day.

On Saturday Lisa and I are going to the mall to go shopping (and relieve stress and all of that important stuff). Lol. Sunday I’m working and then I have to study for my anthropology final, which is at 8am too. Tuesday I don’t have any finals (yay me) and Wednesday I have my math final at 6pm.

I signed up to work a lot within the next two weeks to pay for Christmas gifts. I have no idea what I’m going to get anyone (besides my sister because I got her sweatpants already).

I guess that’s all I have to say. I really don’t want to vent about work again because I know that gets boring to read. Another reason why I’m ending this blog is because my history class ends in four minutes and then I have to work on my essay so I’m going to try not to get on the internet anymore. Wish me luck!
