My Christmas...

So I ended up spending Christmas this year here in Pullman alone. I could have easily chose to travel out of here and be with my friends and especially my family. Honestly, it just wasn't in me this year to really want to celebrate Christmas at all nor be around anyone.

I woke up this morning to find myself with only one present to open up. It was a present given to me from one of my best friends, Sayano. She gave it to me earlier last week and I had previously planned on saving it to bring down to San Antontio and stick it under the Christmas tree at my parent's house. That obviously didn't happen and so fortunately I did have something here in Pullman to open up on Christmas morning. And so I can't say that I didn't get anything for Christmas, right?

My Christmas can be completely summed up in just six photos.

My whole day was spent watching a total of six movies and eating several bowls of pho (which took over 6 hours to preapare) that I made especially for only myself.

Hours passed by and before I even knew it, my day had gone by relatively fast. At around 4pm, I went out onto my balcony to marvel at perhaps one of the most beautiful winter sunsets I've seen here in Pullman in such a long time. If movies weren't enough to entertain me, at least sunsets can.

Spending Christmas alone didn't make for a somber day at all. Perhaps bittersweet, but truthfully there's not much I can expect.

I promise you next year will be different.

Heyyy. :) Sooo Christmas wasn't that bad for you alone after all eh? At least you had a present to open! Unlike you, my family and I do not celebrate Christmas so I am just thankful that I got to spend it with my friend's family this year.

and ooo. the pho you made looked yummy. it could either be just pure camera effect making it looked THAT great or it simply was as good as it looked like. lol.

And my, my, I'd kill to watch that kind of sunset you showed in the picture here in my place. It's beautiful. :) Something I had always thought would only appear on my drawing blocks and not in real life.

Go you for the great pictures and eehh.. might as well tell you this, I downloaded "last Christmas" by jimmy eat world straightaway when i saw you having it here in your blog. it's bloody awesome! simple and nice vid u made too and psst, good to know that you were obsessed with the oc last time cz i still am very much addicted to it since i have the dvds for all 4 seasons. :D

ps: mind my long crappy comment. i tend to type a lot when i stumble upon good stuff.

I spent a good chunk of my Christmas with a bunch of bums. I'm sure your day was more pleasant smelling than mine.
