I know my family is reading this so no, this isn’t me actually saying “no gifts this year.” I have some friends who have done this before during the Christmas season and I understand the sentiment of not wanting to bother with the trouble and also the idea that this one time of the year you MUST give presents. I like giving and of course receiving presents so I think at most I would just find some way to be more frugal if something were affecting my financial status like, you know, unemployment 😛

Today I’ll be eating my Thanksgiving dinner because we decided to make the pork bossam that Anna made before, but this takes several hours of preparation and also cooking so we started it too late. We ended up eating some instant ramen that we bought in Japan. It’s sad to say, but it was so much better than the Momofuku ramen we had the day before.
