Thanksgiving/word vomit  
Hi, hi~ long time no see huh? Alas, no real reason again - sheer laziness/nothing interesting going on. But with the holidays happening, I thought it'd be fun to blog about my holiday break today today! ^^

So for Thanksgiving I headed to my Dad's side for dinner. That was lots of fun,  I got to see most of the cousins, and aunts and uncles. Mom didn't go because work "called" her in, but unfortunately they canceled at the last second. (>へ<) That actually upset me because she had to stay home, and I am a big believer in being together on the holidays. But let's not dwell on the negatives. Kris rode with us too! That made me really happy, these days I don't see too much of him because he's working. I miss when we all used to cram ourselves into the car on holidays and head all over to see family. My older sister in the back, and my two brothers in the middle seat -- those memories remind me of the holidays. Now it's just me, my dad, and younger brother. ~sigh. (ノへ^) But this time of year is meant to take a seat and to really think about what you're truly thankful and grateful for in life. I think I'll list a few of the things I am most grateful for this year: (*・∀-)☆

Without my two faithful companions- by my side (Alligator and Mir) I really don't think I could have made it. You two always unmistakably make me see the light in everything. When I'm down, you always pick me up. You both keep me grounded -- when I'm acting on the cray side, you reel me in, and help me to stay rational. From our inside jokes, to our deep, heartfelt, late night talks I am forever indebted to you for the love you have shown me. You both listen to me no matter what I have to say, irregardless of the nonsense of the topic; and even when I can't describe how I feel you get it. You both reassure me of my fears and let me know it's okay no matter what I have to face. You've both help me to weather the storm of 2010. I am always here for you no matter what, no matter the distance, no matter the problem. I'd need more than just one day to show you both what you mean to me -- I'd need practically an eternity. Let me shower you in love, affection, yummy foods, and gifts that you both adore and then some; because if friendship got a gold metal, you two gals would get the platinum because you both are nothing short of absolutely amazing. I pray for you both every night to get everything and more that can because you deserve it for being so marvelous. I'm always at a loss of right words to say to even express my love and admiration for you two. I look up to my two sisters hoping to be like them. You both are destined for some amazing things. I simply adore and love you two forever! MAN FOREVER~!

My family- Our ups and downs are keeping us apart right now, but I know that eventually we'll get over that. It'll all seem like a silly memory, a hiccup in the road, and a series of stupid argument when we look back on this time. Without you guys I wouldn't be here today, hehehe, literally; but in all seriousness you comfort me when I need it need it most. You take the brunt of my anger and frustration first hand and always find a way to give me food, clothing, and a roof of some sort over my head. Mom and Dad, I know right now times are tough, but I want you to know I love you. I know you both feel like you've failed me but you haven't -- if anything I've become stronger willed and more wise because of this. Brobro, you allow me to vent to you and be silly and crazy with you. You fix any problem I have and keep me rational at like 2 am. Allow me to drive Betty on the highway (WITH TRUCKS) and take me to Walgreen's at silly times of the night. You follow my twitter where we keep in contact. I hope you get into Berkley and follow all your dreams because I know you can, and you deserve it!  And above all never fail to make me laugh with our corny jokes, I love you. Sis, I know we're not exactly perfect right now, but through it all you've been a complete mentor to me. I owe a lot to you. You were there to stay up with me late into the night and hear me spill my every thought and secret too, comforted me when mom was sick, and just taught me about a whole lot in general. Like I said, one day we'll look back and see that this made us stronger. Please stay safe, and I'm always praying for you. Do super well in your studies, I love you a lot, and I miss saying that to you; but I want you to know that if you ever check this blog. Little Bro, I know we fight a lot, and say things that we both don't mean to one another but I really do love you. I hate how bad of a sister I am to you, and how sometimes I am bossy and sassy and never let you finish your sentences. I am working hard to change that, and I hope our relationship gets stronger. I want you to know that I worry about you, and that sometimes when I "lecture" you, it's only to help you, not to be a bitch -- I promise that. You do a lot for me, and I honestly and truly appreciate it! From now on, I'm gonna be a better big sister to you, I swear. To everyone whose helped me in this family I love you a lot and you all are always in my prayers.

Myself- I have my health, and my knowledge, and a whole truckload more than some others, so I have nothing really to be upset about. I improve and grow almost every year, and for that I am so thankful for. I've become better at being happier, and more content with myself and I couldn't have done it without every person whose walked in and out of my life. That being said, I am always on a quest to make myself even better, to attain bigger dreams, set higher goals and to expand my knowledge. I plan to give more of everything this year: love, happiness, patience, thankfulness, and focus to all of the things I become involved in (as well as giving to everyone in anyway I can). I've been immensely blessed to have a sea of people around me who care and love for me in every way. So from now on, I will look to always improve every part of my being and to look brightly towards my future.

On to something a little less "heavy," ~~ Hair news!! So, I've been feeling rather adventurous lately and want to switch up my look. I've decided I want to go blond. Maybe something like Jessica from SNSD, Boa, or Hyunseung from Beast's hair colour. My hair is about a level 2 brunette, which is about as dark brown as you can go without being black (level 1). I know that everyone says I won't make a great blond, but I've always wanted to try it out. I've had black, purple, pink, and even some blue in my hair; so I don't think that blond will be horrible. Worse case scenario, I wait 6 weeks and put the deep red I want to do next on it. (○^ω^○) If the stylist can't go light like the colour I want, my back up plan is a caramel colour, something like a J.Lo or Onew hair colour. Hahaha, I just bring in tons of photos I like of hair, and we compromise~ (人´∀`) I also was taking chances with my hair and cut bangs into my hair the day before Thanksgiving at like 3 am, along with giving my mom a hair cut. I am actually really proud of the outcome. I know a professional or someone with a higher skill set could do a lot better job, but for me doing on my own, I'm really happy with how it looks. They're symmetrical and taper down into my layers so it's all good! My mom's hair came out pretty well too! I cut about 2 inches maybe... just a touch up. Plus side to her hair is that it's a choppier look so if I had more leeway with the cutting. Not too shabby~ Lately I've been thinking about going to beauty school to get my license and work in shops while going to uni? I have yet to work out anything in regards to even going to uni, so I still have lots to think about and do.... (;@_@) Side note: I really fancy Boa's and Hyunseung's cut in these photos! ★ Oh goodness, my hair is just gonna keep getting shorter .... hehehehe! (ノ≧∀≦)ノ Here's a few reference photos~!

My makeup turned out pretty well on Thanksgiving too! Which, hehehe, is also a blessing because even something as simple as eyeliner turns out terrible for me whenever I have somewhere to actually go! {*≧∀≦} I did a winged eyeliner/smokey look with a bright fuchsia lip. I used the Revlon Just Bitten lip stain, and it's super pigmented on my lips. It stayed all night into the morning, where when I woke up I have just a hit of bright pink left. I wanna go back and pick up some more of them! Plus the Covergirl mascara the lengthens and adds volume~  I wore my flower skirt with a simple white tank and a black cardi and leggings to match~  along with my mom's heeled ankle cut boots to add a little metal/hardware to the look. I was pretty chilly out, around 30 degrees maybe? So I made sure to bundle up; scarf, mittens, heavy winter jacket - the works.

Other than the Thanksgiving break and upcoming holiday/winter break, I've really done nothing. Class and that's about all my days amount too. It's the final stretch in class, so for the most part I am done "learning" new materials for class. It's mostly just review until finals. This weekend my plan is knock out my psych exam guide, finish reading Othello, and do the paper that accompanies it, so when I meet my tutor on Monday all I have is that psych project left and whatever is left in English to finish project wise for Othello. I am hoping to to take my finals by the latest - Dec. 9th. Hopefully he'll let me take them that early if I bust my butt to finish everything else. ヽ(*´∀`)ノ Outside of school I got to hang with Mir bear! Most recently we went to the mall~! We got some cell charms and more gifts for Alligator. GAH, I simply can't wait to send her the package of goodies Mir and I got/made for her. For now, we just make some silly videos and send them to her. And then the time before that we played at the park by her house. I don't think I mentioned it, but we also handed out candies to the trick-or-treaters on Halloween. (o≧∀≦)o Her and Alligator are my favorite buds to hang out with ♡♡♡♡ My new goals are to save up money for Mir, Alligator, and my own apartment. And to save for a trip to Malaysia. Eh, I suppose I should end it here. My laptop is about to run out of battery and I can hear the 6 am Law and Order theme play on the TV. Until next time~

I think you will make a beautiful blonde, and I refuse to hear otherwise. I just picture you with the kevin cut and blonde color and it's so cute~~~! I feel like spazzing like the little girl in Despicable me with the unicorn. I haven't actually seen that movie, we should watch it together <3

Personally, I thought this was lovely. I am so super thankful for you <3! I'll forever and always be here for you! I'll be by your side far longer than the world can stand, kid. Isn't that a frightening thought :P? I love you~

FIGHTING! You can do it bb, you'll knock all that work out :D
