Another holiday....

I am starting to feel the holidays. Growing up in the Philippines, I am just aware that Holidays meant Christmas season. But here in the States, Holidays is not just a season to be with family but such a shopping and gift giving craze.

Tomorrow will be Black Friday, the day people spend as much as they can mostly by credit because the prices are tremendously brought down. My brother urged me to at least check out some stuff that I can resell. I am also thinking of buying some stuff to give to my family and friends in the Philippines. I may have the money to buy some at this point I can't afford it. With my plans of quitting my job on the 19th of December, I am trying to save as much money as I can to make me survive the holidays without a possible employment.

It is thanksgiving. A day to celebrate what we are thankful for this year. So what are my plans for today? Nothing special for I am at work. For me, this day is no different like the other non-working holiday. I am always at work during holidays. My employers are taking advantage that.

There is an option for me to go LSCC (my cousin's church). But I cannot fathom to come back there. I would rather be at work and not mind having some fake socialization.

Holidays are commercialized,I thought. With all these spending.... Americans are just putting themselves more in debt. But with a little part of me being materialistic, I would have bought stuff myself if I had the money to spare.

But with all the commercialism, this holiday season also makes me a little sad because I don't have immediate family to spend it with. Yes, I have my cousins and friends to maybe spend it with. But they are people I just met here. Not really those people who knew me way back whom I can really say cheers to.

Right now, I hope I can take a nap. I am really tired.
