I hate the holidays for many

I hate the holidays for many reasons. First, my parents are divorced, so usually I spend Christmas or Christmas Eve on an airplane to go see my dad in England or visit relatives. Yeah, my Christmas dinner is vile airplane food. Then the next day I'm usually exhausted and jet lagged. Now, when I have Christmas with my mother, it's about as bad. She runs children, youth, and infant ministry at our church. So, she runs the Christmas pagaent...so my day is just shot. I swear, I haven't had a good Christmas since maybe third grade.

LOL, for those who work at the church, this is the most stressful and unspiritual time of the year next to Easter!

And I'll stick it on the shelf again.

Aww... that sux. I can sympat

Aww... that sux. I can sympathise with you for the plane food bit - gross. *cough*

Well, I love holidays... I usually do retarded stuff with friends (which always end up depleting my wallet =\) I usually go somewhere if I don't leave NZ (like a trip to ski or just tour around the North and South Island). Last time I went Bungie Jumping lol... it was really fun, you guys should go and try it =P

Well, if I leave NZ... I usually go back to Taiwan to see my family, relatives and some friends (lol, I have a few friends I made in kindergarten before I came). That's usually okay... but my dad has to work and my brother and friends has to go to school so I stay home most of the time and watch tele (boring). However, everytime I go back... most of our extended family go to this vacation hotel place. That's usually pretty fun...

So um yeah..

I envy thee, sir! My holidays

I envy thee, sir! My holidays always have a way of torturing me. I remember one time I spent the first few minutes of the new year barfing up undigested spaghetti. Food posioning is not fun x_x.

Wow...what did bungee jumping feel like?

Lol.. it didn't exactly turn

Lol.. it didn't exactly turn out too well. You get really excited when they start measuring your weight and getting you the shoe and gear stuff. But when you actually stand on the platform and look down your eyes go O_O. I had all this pressure from my family and all these people watching me and 'encouraging' me to jump lol. Then I did... did a roll... and suddenly it's over lol. It hurts when they hang you upside down and the rope pulls on your legs. My shirt keeps coming down when I'm hanging upside down since it's not tucked in lol... it was quite embarrassing. =P

My Holiday

I usually like the holidays because no school. present don't matter to me that much anymore, i've got a job so if i really want some thing i can just go get it. this year's going to be fun tho, my relatives from south carolina are coming up here to ohio so i get to spend time with them.. woo hoo. and my girlfriend is going to flordia with another one of our good friends so i have to spend a week without her, which is going to suck, she keeps me sane (or insane depending on which way you look at it) but that's what i'm doing this holiday season... lots of family stuff and hopefully i'll be able to get to the ski slopes!
