Hard Candy Christmas.

Well, it's nearly Christmas...I am in Baton Rouge, with my family and they are all sick.

Great. Maybe I'll get a virus for Christmas.

So far, it's been a pretty uneventful trip. I've seen my friends, eaten too much food and had riveting conversations with my parents about what I am going to do when I finish school. My mother has, all of a sudden, developed this anxiety about the *demographics* of Atlanta. She is worried that I will not get a job because an equally qualified minority candidate might get it instead.


I've never worried about this at all. I would like to get a job based on my merits, skills and talent...I pretty much feel like the right opportunity will present itself to me. But hey, she's a's her job as a conservative, republican white woman to worry about the aggressive minority population stealing opportunities away from the poor, disadvantaged white, upper-middle class, educated females of the world.

Alas, it is Christmas...the season for love, laughter, giving, and, most of all, tolerating family.

Happy Holidays everyone!
