Just finished wrapping all of my gifts. I love wrapping presents. There's just something about it. I'm not much of an artist, but gift wrapping is a creative outlet for me.
It's really nice to be home, with the exception of sleeping in my old twin bed on a 15 year old mattress. It's not nearly as comfortable as my bed back in SD and my back is not happy about that. Lucky for me, my folks have a hot tub, so I spent the morning soaking and reading Skipping Christmas.
My mom and I went and saw Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events yesterday. We both thought it was clever and pretty good, but dark and certainly not a movie for children. I wouldn't recommend paying full price for this movie...catch a matinee or wait for the DVD.
To be honest, I'm still in a haze from Wednesday. So much good news and a great homecoming. I can't help but dance a little jig from time to time. When I get the urge, it doesn't matter where I am...I did it in the breakfast aisle at the grocery store yesterday. I really can't believe my good fortune and I am so thankful for it. A substantial weight was lifted from my shoulders and now I can enjoy myself, content that things are falling into place.
A couple of people have asked what my top choice is. I'm waiting to see what happens with Kellogg & Chicago before I put too much thought into that. Then it will come down to admit weekends (which I plan to attend as many as possible) and if there's any scholarship money offered. Right now, Anderson has a slight edge on McCombs due to my CA residency & the entertainment management opportunities.
Others have asked if I'm still going to apply to Wharton R2. My answer: You bet your ass I am!
Merry Christmahanukwanzakah to all!
