I haven't written in awhile. To sum up what's happened since I last posted, I took my GRE and did quite well considering the amount of studying I did, I finished my finals and got my grades for the quarter (I made Dean's Honor List! It's been awhile since I've made the Dean's Honor List), and we went to Jonathan's company's holiday party! It was awesome! They hired Cirque de Soleil to perform. And I coincidently bumped into my best "girly girl" friend, Dorothy there! Her good friend works for a company that PC Mall just bought, so I had no idea she would be there. Fun Fun night.
Now, to discuss what I've been talking about... Jonathan's christmas gift! If you've been reading, you'll know that I knew what I was going to get him a LONG time ago... well, pretty long time ago. He somehow got the strange idea that it was some huge flat screen monitor. Dunno where he got that from. Anyway, he had absolutely no clue, eventhough I had slipped. I had been researching on cameras for the longest time, but I told him that this friend of mine, Mitch, (who often asks me for techy advice) has asked me for advice on a new digital camera. So I was able to get jonathan's input and I did extensive research on my own. But he totally bought it and didn't suspect it at all. I'll let him tell the whole story, but here's the opening of the present pictures... Take A Look! The next day, he said to me, "ooo, what's Mitch's AOL screen name so we could talk about the camera!" hee hee... even after he thought I was shopping for Mitch!

What a weekend it has been! We went to Frank & Sons (Frankenstein, as I call it) to pick up some toys for my little cousins and newphews. We walk pass this bench and I see a man sitting on it. He's sitting upright, but his head is down (like sleeping while sitting). I see a drop of siliva drip from his lower lip and pointed him to Jonathan. I thought he possibly had a mental disorder or something, because he didn't look like he was sleeping. Jonathan thought it may be more serious, but we didn't know what to do because if he was really okay, I didn't want to offend him. We stood there for awhile not knowing what we should do. Jonathan was concerned because his skin looked clammy and blue-ish, but I wasn't sure and thought he may be okay.
At that moment, a another guy sat down on that same benched. He looked over at the man and noticed that the man didn't move. He started to nudge the man... nothing. At that point, a lady with 2 kids walk by and the lady goes hysterical and makes her daugther go get the husband (assumption). The husband comes and calms her down as she cries and screams, "He's dead! He's dead!" Jonathan calls 911 (busy for like 15 minutes). I let the family know that we're calling. Someone in charge eventually came and felt for a pulse... nothing. He put his sunglasses under the man's nose... no fog. I just saw my first dead person.
Unlike my great grandma, who I saw at her funeral where she was made up and looked like she was calmly sleeping, this man had just died. I saw a man immediately after his death. I couldn't stop wondering what he went through just before it. Did he know it was coming? Did he go by choice?... Like, did he just feel it was time and let himself go? Did he feel it as he left? Or did he just fall asleep then went? Now, when I think of death, I see that man. That look on his face... I keep seeing his face.

Yay... I know what I'm getting Jonathan for Christmas now. But I can't share or else I will ruin the surprise. The best feeling in the world is when someone opens up a gift I got them and they have this surprised and greatly appreciative look. I love putting smiles on peoples faces! It's such a great feeling. I hope to put a few smiles on people's faces this holiday season. It's my favorite time of year. Sure I spend quite a bit, but it's so worth it. I love buying people stuff, and it is actually justifiable during the seasons.
I just postponed my physics final to next Tuesday instead of taking it tomorrow. Huge bricks lifted off my shoulders! I would've liked to get it over with, but there's just too much going on in my life right now. I have so many applications and interviews to deal with right now. I need those extra couple days to study... lets just hope I make use of them!!!!

I hope everyone had a great turkey day! As for me, it went well. My family hosted a last minute Thanksgiving luncheon since my aunt couldn't make dinner. That also made us cancel our snowboarding trip for the day, but it's prolly better that we did because I heard it was waaaaaaay crowded. We didn't go until Sunday, which ended up being a good day because it wasn't crowded at all and they had just gotten 2"-5" of snow the night before (pathetic numbers, eh? but it's good for southern california).
I also did a ton more shopping. The past couple years, I've been starting my shopping early... like before Thanksgiving. But in the end, I'm always still missing people. We'll see how I do this year. I tend to leave off the most important people in my life because they're the hardest to shop for. Nothing ever seems good enough. So I'm having trouble finding Jonathan something because nothing is good enough.
Well, I have a Physics final this Thursday, so I really gotta study. But I just wanted to quickly post to mention how I had the worse dream ever. I would put it in my dream section, but I don't want to get into it. Lets just say that I have separation anxiety, and my WHOLE dream was just a bunch of situations that gave me separation anxiety! It was torture!
