So This Is The New Year
However, New Year's Day--at least this year--has been quite enjoyable. I have the day off work, so I woke up at about 9:45 (that's the first time I've slept in all break) and have spent the rest of the day watching either the Rose Parade or some college bowl game or another. I sat on the couch with my dad, watching Michigan play Florida (which was a much better game than Illinois vs USC is so far), researching NFL history, drinking tea, and enjoying the lovely snow which has decided to fall on Cincinnati this first day of 2008. It's not Colorado snow or anything, but it's more than I've seen in a long time.
I plan to spend the rest of the evening in pretty much the same way, trying not to think about the eight hours at Chick-Fil-A that await me tomorrow. I suppose I'm grateful in a way that I have to work, because I doubt I would enjoy this sitting around half as much if it's all I had to do all break.
Happy New Year!
