Phew. So the Fall semester is finally over… And thank goodness. Between all my extracurricular activities and going to class, it was quite the long semester for me. There were a lot of all-nighters (I think the final 50 days of the semester were ~25 all-nighters, 25 not — no joke), my health deteriorated a lot (I sit at home sick in bed as I write this), but it was another semester full of tons of memories and fun. Finally being done with Finals was a great feeling to know I could go home and rest up before the Spring semester starts.
As for Winter Break, my grandparents and uncle will be coming in from Houston, TX to come and enjoy Christmas with the rest of my family here in Northern California. This generally means great meals made by my grandmother and a few family movies, so that should be fun 🙂 Beyond that, I will be spending New Years with my brother and my best friends from high school. We will be road tripping back down the California coast to LA and going to TAO (Together As One) on New Years Eve. Then its back to NorCal to head to Tahoe for a few days of snowboarding. And then a rat race back to LA before I head to see CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas with Jeff and all our friends at IEEE USC!
The first part of the break will be dedicated to relaxation; the second half to a lot of fun activities with cool people… Hopefully it will turn out to be a good balance! 🙂 Anyway, that’s about it as far as my holiday plans go. There will be plenty of sleeping (I just woke up about an hour ago :D) and tons of family time, which will both be nice. I wish you all the best of holidays! I’ll try and blog during break, but no guarantees…
Here’s to a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Kickin’ Kwanzaa! See you mid-January!
