This year Christmas was very relaxing, and a lot of fun. Yesterday my parents, my brother, and I spent the day hanging out together and opening presents. It was fun just relax and spend some time together. I highly suggest getting one or more of Christine Anderson's CD's of bell solos. I got one for Christmas, and it is a lot of fun to listen to being a bell player. I also suggest (if you love music) getting "Musicophilia tales of Music and the Brain" by Oliver Sacks (the awakenings guy). It is a good read.
Meanwhile I am still dealing with a cold that doesn't seem to want to go away. I miss feeling like normal. I guess that's life. I am seriously looking into going back to school and studying nurology. But that isn't certain yet.
This morning as I was listening to NPR, I heard somthing about what is the definition of rich is. The sad thing is that people that make 250,000 or more a year don't think of themselves as rich. They must be crazy to think that despite the fact that they are making 250,000 a year, and so many people are only making 20,000 a year, and you don't see yourself as rich. Hell, if I was making 250,000 a year I wouldn't be living with my parents still, I would be living on my own somewhere far from Midland, I would be giving some of that money away to people that need it more than I do, putting some of it away for my retirment, and not be spending it on mansions, hummers, or other crazy things. And what about the people that are making millions of dollars every year? Why can't they give a million dollars a year away to people that don't have any or much money? If you're making over a million a year, then you can handle giving away a million to people less fortunate than you.
