Yay. Another early morning at the office on Christmas Eve Eve :) Have only been here for 3 hours yet feel like I'm already out of work to do. Hum. Perhaps that is because half the office is already out for their holiday breaks. Well, I work tomorrow and perhaps the 26th. We will see.

I got a 3.6 in history :( Well that was the highest I could have gotten in the class because of my stupid paper grade. I had a 4.0 on everything else but um that paper grade was 45% of my grade and so that blows but whatever. Since I slept through most of the lectures, I'll just consider my 3.6 payback for not paying attention. But now I need a 3.8 in econ so I better get that or else my holidays are over.

Bought Norah Jones CD yesterday (finally) and fell asleep listening to The Nearness of You. Woke up at 4am to find my laptop still on my bed... hmm. I was surprised that I hadn't managed to kick it off yet. Watched part of Amelie- lovely movie. I can't wait to finish it tonight.

My mom said she'd buy me this if I get a 4.0 next quarter and my dad said he'd buy me a digital camera. I wonder if he still remembers. He seems to have selective amnesia when it comes to buying me stuff. Nothing like the promise of material accumulation to motivate me to do well. Mmm I love electronic gadget things. But I feel like one of those kids who I always laughed at, who had to be bribed to do well in school. Haha. I guess I am one of them now but my philosophy is that the means don't really matter- its the end results that matter.

So I was thinking about where outside of the US I would like to live. Now, to travel or study I would go almost anywhere. But to settle down and live for a while, I think that outside of the US I would only live in London or Shanghai. Maybe Hong Kong. I surprised myself by how few places I would like to be for long term... guess I love being in the US too much to leave it for good but I would like to have the opportunity to work in both London and Shanghai for a couple years or so.

Being called off to do some major work. Tata!
