As I write this, I'm full from eating all kinds of delicious Thanksgiving foods,
and now I am watching various Thanksgiving themed episodes of TV -
namely Chuck and The OC.
The title is another Seth Cohen quote.
I mean, obviously.
Today went better than expected but started off a little rocky.
My mom and dad were fighting a lot,
in a way they don't even try to hide from other people anymore.
But the more people that showed…
But I was getting Christmas present ideas for other people and now I'm looking at dresses for New Year's Eve.
Boyfriend doesn't really want to go out of town with his friends like last year which is weird but oh well.
We still want to do something and I like dressing up so I'm looking at dresses!Continue
and I just feel like posting some music today.
And ignoring my homework, of course.
So yesterday I went Christmas shopping with my mom, sister, and sis-in-law.
As you know, I'm not a big fan of shopping,
but it was my one chance to get out of the house for a while,

Luke is the perfect boyfriend: handsome, kind, fun. He and Emaline have been together all through high school in Colby, the beach town where they both grew up. But now, in the summer before college, Emaline wonders if perfect is good enough.
Enter Theo, a super-ambitious outsider, a New Yorker assisting on a documentary film about a reclusive local artist. Theo's sophisticated, exciting, and, best of all, he thinks Emaline is much too smart for Colby.
Emaline's mostly-absentee father, too, thinks Emaline should have a bigger life, and he's convinced that an Ivy League education is the only route to realizing her potential. Emaline is attracted to the bright future that Theo and her father promise. But she also clings to the deep roots of her loving mother, stepfather, and sisters. Can she ignore the pull of the happily familiar world of Colby?
Emaline wants the moon and more, but how can she balance where she comes from with where she's going?
Sarah Dessen's devoted fans will welcome this story of romance, yearning, and, finally, empowerment. It could only happen in the summer.
