Dallas was amazing. The funeral was beautiful. Granny's house was always where everybody met and got together for a celebration or a big dinner. And it was only fitting that this was the biggest one of all. Elyse said it right last night that when someone has lived a full life that it's not so much about being sad, but more a time to celebrate their life. This sad event brought our family together like never before. I caught up with family members that I hadn't seen in over ten years, and some that I'd never seen before. Some of us spent hours just hanging out on the front porch. I got to run around with my little cousins, play fight with them, carry them around on my back and shoulders. Got to listen to stories from my older cousins. It was truly a blessing. We all exchanged numbers and hopefully we'll all keep in touch. Uncle Tommy plans to have a huge dinner around Valentine's day to try and help keep the family together so we may be going back up for that. There's so much I want to say, but just no way I could type it all out and correctly portray the feelings I want to.

Marlon and I left Dallas around 10:30am yesterday. We got into Houston and he switched his car for Chris' truck and we immediately left for College Station. We got there and emptied my dorm room. All that's left is my refrigerator that I'm going to leave for my roommate and a bag of plastic bags. Before leaving town I ran by Pei Wei to say bye to the people that were there. I'm glad all the manager's were working so I got to say bye to them. I'm really going to miss working there. We got back around 8:30pm and unloaded everything. Now all I need to do is find some classes to take and figure out how I'm going to get around this semester.

Monica rented a 06 camry while her car's in the shop and I love it. I don't know if I can just settle for any old car now.

We finally made it to Tan Tan the other night. It was crazy busy when we got there. It was the first time I'd seen it when they had the whole restaurant open. It was also the first time I ate my whole meal and was still hungry. Afterwards I went to pick Monica up, then met up with Ding, PJ, and Jessica at UH for some pool. I had a crappy night, but it was still fun. Ef and Olivia showed up after work. We ended the night at Ruchi's, another place i hadn't been in forever. I'm spending way too much money, but I figure that'll stop when school starts up.

Today was a rest day. I missed out on soccer because I didn't have a vehicle :-I finally put my desk together moved my computer, so hopefully I'll be able to get some work done without the distraction of the tv.

I've got a lot of studying to do the next two days, so I can take my final early. It's gonna be hard, but it must be done so I can make it to Dallas for my granny's funeral. I want this A. And if I'm going to get it then I need some sleep, so goodnight.

Work just doesn't flow as smoothly as it did this summer. But that's okay. I still enjoy it most of the time.

The class I'm taking is alright. This test was harder than the last one, but I actually enjoy the class some of the time. Usually until I just can't stay awake any longer because I didn't get enough sleep the night before.

I had to get up early today to take Monica to work so I'd have a car. Then I came back and took Marlene to her school. After that it was nap time for a couple hours. I woke up and went up to Bellaire to go to lunch with Nadia.

Need more sleep.

It seems my days go better when I get a nap in. I actually got two naps in today. I got out of class around 10:30 and slept for around an hour at hcc while waiting for Askia to finish his class. Then I came home and slept another couple hours before work. Work was good tonight since we actually had enough cashiers. I hate to do it, but I need to call the Pei Wei in college station and tell them I won't be back. After work I met up with a bunch of People at The Palace to go bowling. It was good seeing people I hadn't seen in quite some time. We had fun bowling then most of us hit up Bennigan's afterwards. But not before some ass slapping and PJ getting dropped kicked in the parking lot by Olivia via Greg.

I'm supposed to be saving money, yet I keep spending more and more even though I haven't gotten paid in over 3 weeks.

Today was just a rest day. I didn't really do anything. I've tried to start learning java again, so we'll see how that works out. I gotta find something to do.

I'm glad 2005 is over, but 2006 is already off to a bad start.
