It’s time to say goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016! I always love this time of the year, the end, because it’s a good time to start new, refresh myself, and just to reflect on the past year. Today though, I’m just reflecting on this past month, December.
These are the super cut decorations my RA set up in the hall lounge. The string lights are year round decorations but my RA amped them up with snowflakes and tinsel. I took this photo after admiring it/procrastinating in studying for finals. Half of December consisted of dead week, the week where students study like crazy for finals, and finals week. I have never study as much nor consumed as much caffeine as I did during those two weeks. I passed all my classes though so it was worthwhile.
As an early Christmas gift, my roommate got Jingle Ball LA tickets for her, my other roommate and me! It was super fun and I got to listen to so much music. This photo is of One Direction. I’m 99% sure that was the last time I will ever see them because to be honest, I lack any hope that they’ll come back after their “hiatus.”
I also got to see Joe Jonas with his band, DNCE. They were super funky and fun. Also Joe Jonas is still a babe, although I was always a Nick girl.
My favorite part of the show though was The Weeknd’s set. I sang my little heart out! I had wanted to see The Weeknd for so long. I’m so happy and thankful that I finally got to. Although I had a ton of fun at this concert, it made me realize that I’m really not into concerts where the majority of the crowd is younger than me and extremely fangirly.
This month I also went to see the snow with my parents. We went to the Lake Elsinore Village and then stopped on the side of the road to actually touch the snow.
This snowman took me quite a while to make. Props to the people who build massive snowmen and snowcaves! I’m such a wimp when it comes to the cold. The snow is not for me but it is so pretty to look at (from the inside of a cabin or a car).
I also went to a Mariachi Concert which is super random. I don’t even like mariachi music but my uncle got the tickets for free so I went. I wasn’t really a fan of the music but I did enjoy watching the dancers!
This is where the concert was held. It was super fancy inside and also huge.
On Christmas Eve, my family and I just hung out at our house. We ate dinner, played Just Dance, and relaxed.
On Christmas Day, after going to church, my family went over to my grandparents house. We ate a ton of pozole, tamales, and cookies. We even held an ugly sweater cookie decorating contest. Mine won prettiest which I was proud of because I spent a ridiculous amount of time making it. We also had a pinata and all the kids took turns wearing the remains of it as a hat. It was a really nice Christmas. Also, I don’t think I ate a single vegetable on Christmas day.
I’m ending this post with a selfie because why not? I just thrifted this sweater and I’m super happy about it because it gives me UNIF vibes. It’s actually a little more vibrant in person. Anyway, that’s all for this post. Happy New Years!
