This year has certainly gone quickly… too quickly if you ask me. It was only the other day I was sitting at the Reg, then working at the Reg – while studying for the LSAT after work, also at the Reg; living at the Reg for almost 18 months straight was certainly nicer than anyone could imaging. I miss those nice lights and comfy chairs, and the big tables in the A-level. :::Sigh::: Well, as far as I’m concerned, I should’ve never left. The Reg is highly irreplaceable, nowadays anyway.

I must say, though, that being here has made the last four months go slowly; but not that slow. I has gone fast enough that the year is over, but slow enough that I am sick of being here already. From the previous years which I remember clearly, 2002 was slow as molasses; contrarywise, 2003 – though tough – went very quickly. In comparison, 2004 has been an average-going year.

Well, I think I had one resolution for 2004; but probably not since I am not big on those. But, if I did, it probably got nowhere. Unless, that is, it was to graduate, which I did. Or if it was to move to a nicer place, because I did that too – though it was short-lived. [I still miss my nice apartment with a backyard, within 7-minutes distance from the Reg.] Well, I am sure that there were things that I haven’t gotten to, which leaves me with some for 2005. And since I have nothing better to do at 5 a.m., I am going to post those separately.


Anyway, my mom is hosting the New Year’s Eve party. I have no freakin’ idea why. I mean, I am the one who like to entertain. She doesn’t like to have to cook and clean her own house for, and after, a party. Though she always shows up early at other people’s houses to help set up and stays late to help clean up. I think it’s more of a broken and stained issue. In any case, since I am 25 months old, I was just informed of this a few hours after sundown. Make that around 11 p.m. and I think you are right on; as a matter of fact, I think it was 11:30.

Regardless, I get no say or choice, or a way out. A friend invited me to her family’s party, but what do I say to my mother. “Hey, mom, I think I am going to go over to the DOE’s for the New Year’s Eve party; and see her visiting relatives, who I haven’t seen in a week. You don’t really want me to stay here and hang out with our relatives, who I haven’t seen in over 5 years, do you? I mean, it’s not like they crossed water to be here!”
