perhaps just as awesome as the first two weeks of december.
took my data communications final, and got a good grade. had a wonderful dinner date thursday. it snowed and caused my marketing final to be on saturday, saw abacabb at the beach with travis after having a rad day. came home and took my final the next morning. went xmas shopping and saw abacabb at hat factory later in the evening.

MY BITTER END
LOSS OF REASON
A KID NAMED DARWIN
7PM @ MB'S
I can remember this shit like it was yesterday, first time seeing this band and they open up with 21 gun salute and brought a light show inside tiny fucking michael bob's. that shit blew me away...and then i got to see loss of reason, mbe and folly best shit, AND SAW THE RED DEATH AND FASSW THE NEXT NIGHT? WHY CANT METALCORE BE THIS AWESOME ANYMORE?...that's right evan, because all your favorite bands keep breaking up and it's not 2005-2007 anymore.

2PM @ HAT FACTORY
so for the second night in a row I saw two songs from IA1962 then saw abacabb. it was nice to see so many familiar faces at the beach show, but the richmond show was a better performance all around. same setlist, more energetic/louder and more kids into it. hit my best headwalk in three years easily (not saying much) during regression, maybe seeing huskey at the beach show had something to do with hitting that long walk.
work sucked the next two days and then i took my last final at the last possible final slot (tuesday at 1pm), shit sucked. studied all that morning with ashley after coffee then went to target for some more quick shopping afterwords...kevin and i exchanged gifts and i napped hard for a bit.
later in the evening was wonderful, i wonder how lucky of a guy am i to have a cute girl make me such an amazing meal? most amazing dinner in a minute, had a fun night out and chilled hard after.
an amazing start to my next day and then a long shift at work.
thursday at work was amazing, came home and gave cat and kdog their xmas gifts...they were stoked. chilled for a bit then took ashley back to vb when she got off work. arrived in creek and did it up with the neighbors, you already know.
xmas eve, nathan, adrian, cat and i hung out all day and then had dinner with the rents, dinner was a lot of fun and magically delicious. cat left to go hang with her dad and we continued to chill before tyler hit me up to hangout. hadn't seen that fool since last xmas eve, hungout and caught up then he went to his dads.
xmas day was incredible. woke up and did xmas with the family. dad was ssoooo stoked on the winter classic tickets. i got a new jacket, i love the fuck out of this thing. some giftcards, the normal black sweater and pair of boxers from grandma, a wings calendar, some reese's peanut butter cups and some cash. hungout for a while and said merry xmas to the vastano brothers. then went out to say hey to kelsie for a minute, it was way sweet to see her and catch up for a while. saw her mom, her newly wed sister sharla, boagie, avalanche, that ungodly soft orange cat who's name escapes me and that huge great dane that did NOT like me. came back through the peake to the creek to scoop travis. made a delicious ham biscuit with potato salad, that house is always good for ham. maynard's cooking is always on point, no matter who's cooking. driving back to richmond is when the snow first started falling. got back in a timely fashion and expected not to be going to work the next day due to the snow. chilled with kdiggity for a bit then went home.
had work all day sunday and had a crazy busy shift after treydog had sent home zac and alex before it got crazy. we recovered nicely and i got sent home an hour early. chilled with sam, travis and nick over at dudestorm and looked at black men magazine's holiday gift issue. holy hell do i love beautiful black women, watched some movie with michael cera that's based off a comic. it took a while for me to look past michael cera playing another awkward guitar playing indie kid, but when i did i enjoyed the movie.
i need to get more accomplished today before work, and i can't wait till i get off later. i feel like i haven't seen you in forever.
