...where does the freaking time go, ughhhhh. A lot has happened since I last posted, and that wasn't even a "real post". Don't really feel much up to a detailed recap so here are random bullet points.

-work still enjoyable, semi-quiet lulls interspersed with STRESS STRESS I AM ANNOYED BY THE DESIGNER TEAM THEY VEX ME AUGHHHH STRESS
-house dry now, water's been gone for 2-3 weeks and Dad and Sue have been speedy in getting everything in somewhat fighting shape again. Tentative moving back date sometime in Jan, though of course the entire ground level is gutted and will be empty for a while. We even had new ceilings put in, hopefully the mold won't return. Might be pretty hardy, since the house was under 2-3m of water for 2 straight months.
-Ma's one year anniversary came and went without me breaking down into a useless gibbering heap too badly-- Dad was thoughtful enough to take me out to dinner that night so that I got back to the hotel room late and tired, and the next day I went and made merit with my aunt and uncle and spent some time at their house, where I got to see my grandma and the cat. Khun Yai still skinny, cat still FAT lol. Ex-stepdad didn't post anything about the date on FB, but he "liked" my status about it. WOW.
-speaking of moods, I have been up and down and all around these past few weeks but it's in times like these when friends and your remaining family can be so wonderful and lovely. I would go into more whine and cheese about how I seem to have gotten more anxious about a worrying amount of things when I have the time to think about them but I can't be bothered at the moment, hah!
-christmas eve was spent at a friend's party with my int'l school people. On paper it sounded like a kids party (but with tequila and baileys) but in reality it was awesome. Christmas day was spent making my other friend feed me (muslim friend & hotel kid brat unite in not really seeing this holiday as a family thing lol), watching the Swedish Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and being introduced to the amazing world of REVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENGE. Awesome. Eps 1-4 down, now gimme moaaar.
-in Europe I always thought I was too Thai to really fit in there. Now at work I realize that I am not broadly Thai enough to really fit in w/ my colleagues-- though this is different when I'm with my international school friends, who are themselves either Thai or half-halfs. Specialized identity it is then! Also then I will just own the fact that people don't expect me to own the sometimes unnecessary nuanced conversations in the office lol and here I thought I was passive-aggressive by European standards. This isn't to say that I am not enjoying my office and colleagues though, this is just something I've been trying to articulate to myself.
-should probably look into mirroring to DW soon but this is something I will ignore until I have constant net at home again. I miss comment subject lines though! UGH

...anyone have any decent end of year memes to pass around? I haven't had the time to really look.

Omg REVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENGE 8D ♥ Isn't it amazing??! I can't wait for the new ep on Wednesday *__* ♥

Your ex-stepdad is a real douche, 'nuff said :P I'm glad you and your family could spend time together during such a hard time. *hugs*

I totally feel ya on not feeling like you're one or the other when it comes to nationality/culture :P But I kinda like being somewhere in the middle ;) It is hard tho when ppl ask "Where are you from?" and you feel like you can't give a completely honest answer without giving a big long spiel on your life story, lolol.

Happy New Year, bb! ♥

IT IS SO BOSS. I spent 3 hours watching eps 5-7 on new years, as the friends I was crashing at wanted to venture out for rice porridge at 3am and I was about to fall asleep on the couch (and also still digesting my hotel buffet dinner lol)... actually didn't mean to stay up until 6AM then, but REEEEVENGE and also the fact that we were talking about ghosts before they left and I suddenly got a bit scared of being alone in the house XDDDD

He sent me a "FB family tree" request that I am smoothly ignoring for at least a month, because ultimately faking nice on FB shouldn't kill me. I'M DOING FOR THE HOUSE AHHHH XD

Mostly I dig being half-half-- the opportunities and richness of cultures you can claim alone are amazing but oh how there are some things that just get on your nerves (it's always other people isn't it tho most of the time lol XDD)

Yaaaah we did! And it was so wonderful we even met up TWICE and today was to be the third time but Lisi got sick from her klimaanlage or something (we do keep our AC coooold here lol) so I will have to send you your long overdue mail by legit post service after all. I also meant to write you this earlier, so I am just using this comment for this: EEEE thank you so much for the Mitbringsel and the lovely letters (and that boss All Saints card!)! The muesli especially and I have to say the croc leggings are FAB-ulous, though I will be saving them for a cooler time weatherwise or whenever I am somewhere w/chilly AC :D. Why the tea though dude, am not actually a tea person for all that I keep sending it to everyone XDD Gave it too my Dad the compulsive tea-drinker though and he says thanks :DD

No worries re: salami though, I shall just have to come pick them up in Austriaaaa myself at some point this year then! Fingers crossed ahhhh <3

MWAHHHH again bb :DD
