So I'm writing this post from my phone mostly because I'm too lazy to go outside in the cold in the van to find my laptop. I'm still at rachels house so I'm not even sure if my laptop is still there or if it's been stolen. And I'm writing it from my phone just because I can. Anyways, I feel like a blog post from me is far over due. Christmas was great. Beyond great. Spending time with family is my favourite as evidenced by Scott thinking I'm a home body but then I also had the chance to spend time with close friends. It was getting to the point that I was looking forward to Dubai because it would be a rest from all the parties and social events I had been to. But don't worry Devo, I won't actually let the fun stop once we get there. Some highlights from Christmas would definitely have to be our new years party in waterton. "it was epic" in the words of crc. Christmas was also a chance to catch up with Melissa who's here from boston for the next coupleonths so that has been great to see her face! I guess overall what I learned this Christmas is how blessed I am. I had a convo with my cousins wife about if I knew how lucky I was to have the things I have and to be blessed with the parents I do. And I think talking to her opened my eyes in that I know my parents have spoiled me but that I've always worked hard so that they can still be proud. I'd like to think that being such a good kid pays off. And my final highlight of Christmas was the fact that cody's nephew remembered a whole week later that my nickname was bontron and asked every 15 minutes when bontron was coming over. Success.
