So happy to be back on the internet! Good stuff is coming don't you worry!
Growing up, my family never allowed us to celebrate Christmas. They were Jehovah's witnesses and so we didn't get to celebrate any holidays. The Holiday season wasn't anything for us, just another week. At least that's what it was supposed to be. For me and my brother, it was a constant reminder of what we weren't able to do. I used to go over to friends' houses and watch the tv specials and the Christmas lights that I wanted so badly knowing hat I would never be able to have one of my own.
At school, we didn't have much diversity. Nearly everyone was white, Christian, and good-looking. If you didn't celebrate Christmas, you were automatically labeled Jewish. Every person I met wanted an hour long speech about my beliefs and how they worked or told me that I had a deprived childhood or something.
Eventually, I started hanging out with people that could just "get it". I realized who I wanted to be and what I wanted to do. Together, we found that my future involved Christmas. Around holidays, my friends were so supportive; they would sneak me Halloween candy and discreetly share their valentine's chocolate. My parents never knew. Not that they could handle it anyway.
Why am I writing about this? Well, this year was my first full blow Christmas. We met at school and traded cards, presents, cartoons, and I gave to friends he first few copies of a comic I'm thinking of called "My Life in Chibi-land". This year, the Christmas lights had meaning, the carols were music to my ears instead of heinous noise. This year, I could celebrate with my friends instead of hearing about their fun later, sick with guilt and envy. This was my first Christmas, and god help me it's not going to be my last. I know what people mean now when they say it's the most wonderful time of the year.
Merry Christmas to everyone. I mean that.

So haloween is just around the bend...i don't know, does anybody here still do that? I mean, where I live, Haloween is never over as long as you like candy. I actually hear conversations like this:
Me: Hey Jude.
Me: Are you getting a costume for Haloween?
Me: Going trick or treating?
Fr: Yep. If I shave I can probably pass for 13.
Some people love Haloween, some people just don't bother with it. Personally, though i have never gone out trick or treating myself, I LOVE the costumes. Anybody wearing anything special? It seems to me that it would be the best time of year to get away with wearing Fullmetal Alchemist cosplay down the street. Leave me a comment!
Wooo... back from the dead. So where have i been? Well, put smply, school troubles. Put longly, I have a spanish project, required reading for honors english, 2 advanced placement classes, tryouts for swimming, five week reports next week, aa art teacher who hates anime and aviding a certain guy who may or may not have a crush on me.
I'm sorry to everyone who thought i just dissapeared, and I would like to offer a formal apology to all those challenges i wasn't here for, missed the expiration, or flat out missed from beginning to end. Sorry everyone.
