“I’ll look for work during the break. I don’t know this year is a weird year because everything like the traditions and stuff I did before are in the past so now I have to come up with new traditions. I kind of think of this year as a transition year, this won’t be a year I create a definite tradition this will be a year to heal since my grandmother died and she was kind of like the glue that held my family together. I would do holidays with her so I don’t know what I’m going to do for holidays this year, I guess just stay home and figure it out as I go.

I was told to make a Christmas list but I didn’t make one because I’m not like ten anymore so I’m not jumping for a lot of gifts. This year I don’t really want stuff, if I get gifts it’s stuff that I would need not that I would want. Like, I need rain boots and stuff, but when I get to thinking about it there’s stuff that I want like I want a new Xbox but I probably won’t use it. Then I want headphones like Bose headphones but those are really expensive and I want someone to pay my tuition so if someone wants to give me that for Christmas as a gift I would really appreciate that too. I’m not really big on buying people gifts either because I’m broke most of the time so that isn’t going to work, but if I like you I’ll buy you something.

I’ll be happy to get away from Emmanuel for sometime, the only thing I really think about is if I’ll forget something, like if I need it I’ll be like, ‘Damn, I can’t use it,’ otherwise I’ll be fine getting away from Emmanuel, getting away from using shower flip flops. It’s a nice break and I need a break, my mind is like burnt out right now and I need a break from school and thinking and plan my next steps.”
