So...I am writing from my extreeeemly sloowww computer. My friend kawsar let me borrow his really old computer (because thats the only spare he has and I really, really appreciate him bringing it over for me!). So yeah, I can check my email, check facebook but not see albums and stuff, I can't have too many tabs open in mozilla and yeah thats about it. So my 'web' life has become very limited. You know, I love reading people's blogs, watching videos, browsing facebook, listening to songs and checking my email all at the same time and this 98 compaq presario just won't allow all that multi-tasking. Anyways, so I have been feeling very down-in-the-dumps lately. Looks like I will have to leave after all. Nothing has been looking up. Nothing (job wise). What grinds my gears even more is that my student status is one of the biggest hinderances to me getting a job. It just makes me so sad everytime I think about it. I mean of course the citizens of america have the right to employment before me so anyways don't want to talk about this depressing stuff anymore. On to really smart interesting stuff: I sat on a pot of boiling water on Friday. Real smart eh? I was getting ready (read: superfast) for a holiday party and so I went on to make some tea and I usually boil the water in a small saucepan. Anyhoo, I brought the saucepan in my room (so it would cool faster and I could drink it sooner and apply my lipstick sooner) and put it on my chair (because I have such limited table-top space) and within 20 seconds I forgot about it and attempted to sit on the chair while flat-ironing my hair. It spilled all over my butt and burned soo bad. I have marks :( Anyways, I guess worse things could have happened. The holiday party I went to was this company's called CTG. A recent acquaintance has been trying to help me join this company and he thought going to their company holiday party would help me foster better connections. Ahhh I love finger foods and this party was a really elegant one and the food was topnotch. From turkey sandwiches with cranberry mayonaise to crab cakes to portabello mushroom sandwiches (which btw I am allergic to so sucks)to all kinds of decadent desserts (my fave is pecan pie). I ate a lot but didn't really get to meet too many people. I met this one recruiting manager and she seemed to like me and most of the other people were busy. I tried to keep a straight face with a heavily burnt *ahem*. Its muuuch better now. I have been slathering everything from vaseline to coconut oil there. Geez louis, I am such a klutz sometimes. Okay, so what else? It sucks that I can't see videos, go to hulu.com and catch up on my heroes lol. I did something crafty these past few days like paint christmas ornaments. I even put glitter on it. Yeaaah...Well,hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. No matter what, try to be happy because before anything comes family. As long as you're with your family (or at least on good terms with them) and everyone's happy and healthy, there's no reason for a frown. So anyways, I am gonna go now have some ice-cream or like do something interesting.
