Ugh, I wanted to do a "Woo-hoo, I'm home, Happy Thanksgiving!" post while I was actually back home, but I was feeling so incredibly lazy during my vacation that I'm doing a post now - right at a time when I have to be anything BUT lazy.

-

Thanksgiving break was good, incredibly low key. Watched all the football games on Thursday - although I had to give up on watching the Giants/Broncos game because a) I was getting frustrated watching it online and b) they were losing, and losing badly. I ended up watching The Office's "Niagra" on NBC in HD with Dad - it was a lot better the second time around, especially having someone else watch it with me. Dinner was great as well, being with just Mommy, Dad, Graham and Monica. Spent both Wednesday and Friday lounging around the house and getting nothing done - we didn't end up spending Friday with my aunt&uncle&cousins, but we'll see them for Christmas, which gives me something to look forward to after school finishes up.

And then on Saturday, I went with the rest of the fam (along with my uncle and my cousins Luke, Mark and Paul) to Graham's football game at Ford Field! They were playing in the State Championships, and even though I had never been to any of his football games, I figured I should go and support him and his teammates - he's a senior this year, so it's his last chance. Plus, it would probably the only chance I would have to visit Ford Field - I don't plan on going to a Lions game anytime soon - and even better that we watched the game from a suite right on the 50-yard line. What made the experience even better is that they won! We were all excited, because it's his school's first football championship in six years - and Graham being a senior, this was made even more special for him. We all got very emotional at the afterparty.

-

Now that Thanksgiving break is over and I'm back at school, it's full speed ahead to the White House to the end of the semester in two weeks - which means all kinds of projects are due. I have my final project in Comm Research due Monday (Which I just realized this past Monday, and now I'm rushing to get it done even though I've had several weeks) and my content analysis project for Mass Media&American Politics due next Thursday. And then there's final exams the week after that, two each on Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday. So yeah, I've got a lot of work to do in the next couple of days - I'm surprised that I haven't had a total breakdown yet. And also disappointed that I won't be able to go to the football game this weekend - Grand Valley is on track to win another National Championship (they last won in 2006) and I'd really like to be there to experience it - although it'll be nationally televised on ESPN, so win-win-win? Ugh, I just hate the final weeks of the semester. So much stress before getting a vacation.

BUT. Numb3rs is a new episode on Friday, and that's always something for me to look forward to.
