And yesterday feels like January 2011 Time flies, bros. Ready for Holiday season or will it be a challenge to get everything done (my case lol)?

I'm looking forward to the over-time, definitely. Now I just need to figure out what to buy people.

The first half of the year is always the busiest (accountancy), so we're always like "once we have time in NOVEMBER, we'll do x and y", now it's the last month and I still have mountains of work. Will put in some overtime as well and should end well. No real complaints though; will be on a plane to Portugal in 3 weeks. Will be there during Christmas with direct family (parents, sister), so no real worries about gifts and such. :>

Nice. :> Good luck on wrapping everything up. I could postpone it all but after January 2 I'll be swamped with 2012 silliness WHY CAN'T WE STOP TIME

Last chance to get in good workouts for a bit before the gyms get flooded with New Years Resolutioners.

I got a load of overtime during the Hurricane. So that is financing most of my gifts. The holiday season overtime will finish up the rest, and then I'm going to put the rest in my savings account. I'm trying to save up enough money to go to Europe.

Now, my nephew is old enough for video games so I'm going to get him a 360. My sister will fvcking kill me, but it'll be worth it. Every kid should play Halo!

Hah cool. That's nice. :> Kids certainly should enjoy them while they can. I remember being a kid and having no money for games. Now I have money but no time for them. Life is so cruel

I've just about finished getting all my gifts this year. I just have to buy for my dad, and he's so hard to buy for. But unfortunately I'm working almost constantly for the next three and a half weeks. I have two jobs now, retail store and post office, which are both nuts around the holidays.

Dads like single malt scotch. :} But yeah, both of those sound crazy during the holidays. I can't imagine you're allowed many days off either.

I'm going to see as many castles as I possibly can. First and foremost I want to go to Heidelberg Castle in Germany. That castle is fvcking amazing.

I'm still doing research on others.

And yes, I'm an amazing uncle. My uncle spoiled me rotten, so I'm going to do the same.

I always anticipated the worst lol. I've got nothing against people deciding its time to start going to the gym but I wish that they knew that this could happen anytime and not wait until the new year to do it :P

I haven't finished it either. :( Halo 4 came out and everything else went out the window.

When you work a schedule like i do time honestly feels like it's evaporating around you. The 7 days i work i have 4 hours where i'm not doing work or sleeping so those 7 rip, and the 7 i have off im usually having fun. I thought it was still January!

My dad certainly doesn't celebrate Christmas, so giving him a present is completely out of the question (he would take it as an insult). I don't celebrate Christmas, anyway. That said, on other occasions, I also find it hard to get presents for him. I have no idea what he likes - and, in fact, I'm bad at giving people presents in general. I can't remember the last time I gave someone a present. I feel bad about it, but I obsess over the possibility of getting a present for someone that s/he doesn't care about; when I was younger, I used to give presents to my friends on their birthdays, and I felt that they didn't appreciate them very much.

It's a good thing that I don't have an Xbox so there's no Halo 4 to distract from AC3

Catching up on reading, movies, and games when I'm at home and checking out the city when I'm out. Downtown Toronto is incredibly beautiful when they decorate everything with Christmas stuff.

Snow and presents. I love this time of year. I have no idea what to get myself this Christmas. :P

Glad I got two more months of tax free pay checks. An that it's quiet in this region. Makes for slow days though.

My dad is on medication so he can't drink alcohol, so that's out. His only other like was junk food and he had a heart attack a month ago, so he's not able to eat that either. So it's either slippers that he can wear to toddle around the yard or parts for his 78 GMC Sierra which he's rebuilding. But yeah work is kinda nuts. Every day off I have they want me to work, because they always need more people. It's money, but it sucks.
#40 Posted by coolbeans90 (21305 posts) -

It won't be that bad. Might pull a little overtime, but we're not the production bottleneck, so I'm not worried.

Yeah, and it's gonna be almost 80 degrees tomorrow...at least where I live :P

Gonna enjoy the holidays while they last, cause by the end I'll be sooooo ready for them to be over. New year FTW.

Time's been going faster and faster as it goes on. I honestly can't remember if a lot of the things I did happened this year or the year before.

The year has flew by. I love December though =D Looking forward to going Xmas shopping with my best friend.

#47 Posted by C_Glass (259 posts) -

This years been a long one for me, I figured it slowed down because of my chronic depression and the amount of time I invested in learning some new things. I'm expecting another grueling and slow year, but such is life; I have to go through these miserable times in order for me to get to where I'm supposed to be going (sacrficing short term-happiness for long-term gain) I'm just going to have to grit my teeth and shuffle through it.
