The End is Near...

Well, the end is coming. Only 8 more days of school left for me. It's getting close, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. My movitation is decreasing, but it's a good thing I'm one of those people who has to have things done like 2 weeks in advance otherwise my grades would be in big trouble!
So basically this week I picked up 30 extra hours of work. Luckily most of those shifts are at night and not many people call at night so I just do my homework. Monday I worked for 3 1/2 hours and 3 of those hours were spent writing poetry that isn't due until December 5th. I wrote 10 poems and my professor is going over them with me today to tell me if I need to make any changes. Then yesterday I was at work for 7 extra hours. So the first 3 hours of that were used to do research on my Don Quixote paper (yeah, I'm taking a whole course on Don Quixote and it freaking rocks!) and finish my entire paper. Sometime this week I'll be meeting with that professor to discuss any changes that need to be made on that paper. Then, I took a one hour break and the rest of the time (between watching House and Fringe) I finished my other paper for my nonfiction class. I had to write a paper on my nose, and that was pretty interesting. Anywho, so now I am officially done with all of my papers and just have a few petty assignments left to do before I'm all done with the semester. Yay for being an anti-procrastinator!
Also, I went to Walmart the other day and was looking at their Christmas movies to see if I wanted to get any. I was looking back there and they had yet another Christmas movie collection. I already have the collection with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus is Coming to Town and all that stuff so I decided to see what other options this one had. I was so excited to find out that it had pretty much all the other Christmas favorites of mine that weren't in the first collection were in this collection; and it was only $25! I called my mom to tell her about my exciting find and I saw that it had 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, that cute little mouse version that I grew up on. Once I read off all the movies it had my mom told me to buy her a copy and we were both really excited. So the next day my friend Kristal and my roommie Richie and I all sat down and watched a few of them movies. The best one out of the ones we watched was the mouse 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. I was even singing along! I don't know what it is about Christmas movies, but they always put me in the Christmas spirit and make me want to be with my family. Kristal and I are pretty much family, so that was good ha ha. Anywho, here's the list of Christmas movies I now own (and I am a proud owner *wink*):
(In the first collection) Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Comin' to Town, Frosty the Snowman, Frosty Returns, Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol, Cricket on the Hearth, and The Little Drummer Boy.
(In the second collection) How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Leprachauns Christmas Gold, The Little Drummer Boy Book II, The Stingiest Man in Town, The Year Without a Santa Claus: Deluxe Edition, Rudolph's Shiny New Year, Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey, Frosty's Winter Wonderland, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, and Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July.
(Other movies)
A Christmas Story
The Polar Express
The Family Man (I guess that's considered a Christmas Movie)
Christmas Vacation (VHS form)
And probably some other movie that escape me right now.
So, if you're looking for a good Christmas movie watching time, you come straight to me! I'll be more than willing to let you watch them with me or you could even borrow some for a few days. Anywho, I was pretty excited. Well, I hope you all have a great day! PLEASE WRITE ME COMMENTS!

Wow! Alisa! You're amazing! Way to go on dong so much homework, talk about self-disclipline(that I don't have as far as homework goes....). That must feel so great. Normally, I don't like watching or listening to Christmas stuff this early, but I am getting really excited for Christmas this year! I hope do well in all your classes!

I enjoy your blog and now that school's back in, hopefully you can find some time to write a new post! :) I love your pink essay--your dad was the first boy to wear pink since Abraham Lincoln (or choose your own person that lived a long time ago).
