Last semester of college…yesterday was my last first day of school. I’m anxious to graduate and hopefully land a full-time job. I know a lot of people say, “You’re going to miss school when you’re done.” The hell I will! I’m mentally exhausted and just don’t want to go to school any more. I’m sick and tired of homework, tests, projects, and all that crap. I’ve been going to school non-stop since preschool, no breaks. Yeah, I messed up the first couple years of college, taking classes I didn’t need and failing classes, but thankfully, I had a reality check and have been on top of school the past few years. If it weren’t for my spontaneous decision to double major, I would’ve been done with school last semester. Either way, I just gotta suck it up for 4 more months and then I’m free!

I’m already looking forward to spring break even though the semester just started because me and Elisa are going to SoCal for the week. I haven’t been to Disneyland since I was like 10 years old, so I’m anxious to go back. Plus, it’s been a while since I went to LA just to hang out with the family. Our to-do list consists of:

  • Disneyland
  • Disney’s California Adventure
  • Universal Studios (I HAVE to see The Simpsons section and ride The Simpsons 3D ride!)
  • Six Flags Magic Mountain (maybe)
  • San Diego Zoo

We’re also planning to try and bunch of different restaurants! I think Elisa’s most excited for that =P We’ve always wanted to go to the San Diego Zoo, so we’re basically dedicating a whole day to drive a couple hours from LA to San Diego and back just for the zoo. I heard it’s HUGE and I want to see this for myself. Plus, I love going to zoos in general because I love animals. It’s going to be a nice chill vacation, and should be somewhat inexpensive, especially compared to our O’ahu trip last summer. Our expenses pretty much include: rental car, food, and theme parks. My cousin and his girlfriend have an extra room in their apartment and is nice enough to let us stay there for a whole week.

For the time being, school is still my #1 priority and I can’t trip at the finish line. But video games is (and has always been) a huge part of my life and there’s so many games! I’m currently juggling Forza Motorsport 4 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for now, but there’s a few games I really want to get:

  • Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
  • Final Fantasy XIII-2 (January 31)
  • Twisted Metal (February 14)
  • Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (March 20)

…just to name a few. I recently beat Batman: Arkham City and damn, that sure was a fun game. I’m probably going to go back and replay it again later. Well, I rambled on enough…time to get back to Forza and complete a few more races before it gets too late (it’s already 2:30am already).
