Dear 100 Hour Board,
How was your Thanksgiving? Did you get to do everything you hoped?
It was great! Thanks for asking!

‘Twas everything I needed. Seriously though, that break could not have come at a better time. I got some good sleep, lots of great food, and I got a new toy!
Isn‘t he beautiful?
It was excellent! As I hoped, I ate lots of pie, and although I didn't catch up on ALL my overdue Board questions, I at least got several out. And I won my bet with my husband! Sorry BYU fans, but I'm just happy I won the What If book. I also got to spend lots of quality time with family, and my 4-year-old niece condescendingly patted me on the shoulder and said sweetly, "You're trying your best" when I unsuccessfully tried to play a song on the guitar.
Predictably, I got a little too comfortable and didn't quite finish all of my homework that I would have liked to. That being said, I feel thoroughly rested and am actually motivated to work hard these last few weeks before finals. I really needed the mental break.
And of course, the food was amazing. Can't go wrong with Granny's stuffing and mashed potatoes.
My sister and her family went to spend Thanksgiving with her husband's family in southern Utah, so my bishop invited me out to eat with his family. It actually wasn't awkward, as I'm good friends with my bishop's wife, daughter, and son-in-law. Plus, there was plenty of stuffing and also some prime rib, so....super yum. I also made a pecan pie that turned out really well.
Unfortunately, I didn't get like any homework done over the break, mostly due to the fact that I bought, downloaded, and played West of Loathing. It was on sale, which is really the only rationale I can give. Also, it means I have to find a new Christmas present to give myself. But that game rocks, so no regrets.
Overall, it was good. I had some much needed time off and I had a lot of fun!
This was held over and it's all my fault (sorry everyone). Thanksgiving was fantastic! Christmas was even greater! I was in India and busy with multiple weddings and grad school applications so I've been a total slacker but I'm going to do better from here on out!!

Mainly it was super stressful because I had tons of things looming over my head. But it was also really good to see all my family.
