I've got adblock on my laptop browser, so I don't know if this ad has always been on GTF but it made me laugh. They know their target audience :lol:

I'm involved in a lot of clubs, one of which is MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán.) We spent the week collecting cans and making huge boxes of food for the needy families in our school community.

I'm not open about this, but my family is really not well off. We struggle, and my mom didn't know how we'd make it with bills and food during January, before getting her income tax check.

Three of our lovely Spanish teachers just arrived at my door. My sister woke me up. I now have a shit ton of food on my kitchen table. I'm nearly in tears. My faith in humanity is restored. I was half-asleep as I was bringing it in, so I believe I gave all of them quite a bear hug. I'm sure they'll recover.

I can't say how happy I am. Every month is a struggle for my family, but now we'll be okay until we get more money and my mom can pay off the bills.

My week off of university has finally started. I still have a lot of work to do, but at least I can spend the entire week at home which is great. I just love being locked up in my room with no people around sometimes.

Also, they have finally shipped my 3D printer. It will probably take too long before it arrives but at least it's on its way.

People are so much more generous when tipping around Christmas time. I've made a fair bit of extra cash this past 2 weeks behind the bar, long may it continue :D

Me: I got a haircut. My exposed forehead would do any psychic species proud.
Chris: True, it does kind of make you look like an alien. A really cute alien.

3 for £9 on TRESemmé hair styling products; considering they were £5.50 each, I think I got a bargain!

Finally did my coursework that is due in two hours. This was close. I now have a relatively easy week ahead to relax.
