Anybody else spending xmas day on their own? I am, for the first time! Can't be bothered to go home, more hassle than its worth and I can earn lots of money as all the other students I work with have gone home.
Wow... I can't imagine that! However much my family annoy me - and it's often quite a lot - and however bored I get at home - very - I can't picture being totally on my own for Christmas. I suppose I associate it with family and friends.
What do your family think about it? Are you putting up decorations or anything?
earning lots of money doing what?
I will be on my own over new year.
i would happily spend xmas day at work
its not for me, think it way over rated and is basiclly for kids
im working xmas eve boxing day and new years eve but its double time and awsome tips
Im going on holiday this xmas... to be honest i would work xmas day if given the chance (plus if i wasnt on holiday obviously...)
I shall be ski-ski-skiiiing on Christmas Day on Christmas day in the morning.
where you going? im going to banff
I'm working... oh, let's see, Wednesday-Friday, 9 hours a day, and probably 11 or 12 on Christmas eve 'cos they'll probably get desparate. And not on double pay either. Safeway used to- last Christmas was quite lucrative- but Morrisons don't. Bah shame.
Then I'm working Tuesday-Friday, with New Year's Day and the 2nd January off.
What annoys me is that I missed a family get together yesterday because of work- basically, it was so busy my boss said no, you can't have that day off. It was so busy ALL the managers were in, and all were working- something that very rarely happens! It just annoys me that this is the second year in a row I've had to miss it, and there are some relatives of mine I havn't seen for coming up two years now.
Oh well. I've got Christmas day with my Dad and Stepmum and brother, and we'll probably see grandparents and other peeps on the day itself. Though the effort of trying not to argue for one day a year may be too much.
on your own as in alone alone?
black books really does rock the kazbar
I'd hate to spend it completely on my own. I came back home for Christmas day because I'd see my friends as well as my family, even though I could have stayed at uni and worked. I'm bored out of my mind most of the day but at least I'm not completely lonely!
