In my last post, I mentioned I was a juror, the trial lasted seven days and ultimately resulted in the defendant being guilty. It was a DUI case that reminded me that especially around the holiday's, it's important to watch what we drink when we are driving. Or better yet, just NOT drink if we are driving. And don't drink and drive at 8:30am and cause an accident on the 405 freeway during rush hour, better yet. It was overall a very good experience. And I made a whole $15 per day doing it. Thank you State of California.
I'm heading straight from Shanghai to Denver right before Christmas, so I'll get to spend time with my family. I am so excited to see them! It hasn't really felt like Christmas time to me this year, I haven't had time to put up any decorations like my tree last year, and with the weather here being so hot, it's not like it's a white Christmas around here! I'm hoping it will be nice in Colorado, and I'm hoping even more that I might see a flurry or two. Snow is always nice at Christmas.
Also over the last few weeks was my 10-year high school reunion. I had such a nice time and I would totally recommend it to anyone questioning whether or not to go to theirs. I knew I'd regret it if I didn't go, and I am so happy I did. It was nice to see everyone, and after some very generous people started buying shots for the room, it got quite fun and very interesting. Here are some more pictures from that night:
Please tell me what you've all been up to! And I promise, one of these days, my schedule will slow down enough so that I have more time to spend with my lovely little blog.
