I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving!! Mine was busy. Sometimes a lot of family time is too much family time. One bright side was this adorable puppy! She’s so cute. She’s also a little insane. I have many a bite mark on my arms from her, but they were all worth it.
In my family, time is usually spent playing cards but this year the tradition was overrun by iPods, iPads, and iPhones. My cousins and I spent hours on end playing Temple Run and, after dinner, the whole family joined in and we played Draw Something with each other. I can't say I preferred this communication but I also can't say it wasn't fun.
My little cousin is a little too proud of his score of a wimpy 260,000 in Temple Run. I’m sorry and slightly ashamed to admit that my family participates in Black Friday every year. I’m even more ashamed that I like to participate. Now, you may be thinking that ‘participating’ means going out at 11 and shopping for a few hours. No. My family starts at midnight and doesn't stop till 5 then wakes up early and shops more. It’s bad but super fun. Seriously though, I feel like an awful person but it’s just fun. This year we started at 11 and went to 3 then woke up later, drove 3 hours and continued. Usually my family doesn't go all the way to Sacramento so we were a little shocked by the amount of people at the mall that morning. We're used to a couple families but mostly 30 to 50 year olds...well that doesn't happen in Sacramento. The mall was full of teens. I'm not the type to be overwhelmed by crowds but there were times when I wanted to grab my mothers hand. As a 16 year old you have to be pretty afraid to do that. When we were at Macys, a fight occurred upstairs and the women working were saying it had been happening all night. It was a little terrifying to know that people could get so angry over things. It was bad, but I got a lot of clothes I really like so I think it all equates. My favorite purchase by far was these heels from Forever 21. I've fallen in love.
We also watched Cloud Atlas and it was amazing. Seriously, if you haven't seen it, just go. I hope you all had a wonderful day with family and good food. I've got to get back to some school work. Only 50 more pages of Anna Karenina to read tonight! Have a good day!
