I don't do holiday cheer

I miss my dad. My mom too, of course, but mostly my dad. I'm just so different from the rest of my family in some respects. As a kid, I traveled for Christmas most years or for a few, I just prayed that my dad would get better/stay well. I miss advent calendars and everyone in the house knowing what Percy the Puny Poinsettia is. I miss gingerbread house parties and candy canes. I don't miss presents. I'm older and I don't care about that. I'm actually happy that my family got a ps3 for Christmas because we can play it together. I like family time. As much as I love them, I miss my dad asking me what I want for Christmas. I miss how he guessed EXACTLY what I wanted when I never said a word. I miss the things he introduced me to like King Island Christmas and penguin-themed plate. I miss watching him photograph it all. I love my family, but I miss my old one too.
Some nights I pray that the Bible is true just so that I can see my mom and dad again. If I don't make it to heaven, it's okay as long as I get to talk to them again.
Merry Christmas. I hope you're in a better mood than I am.

A list of songs

I was working on my final cladogram and studying for finals, but I decided to take a break to make a list of songs I've listened to recently and feel like sharing.
"In Colour" by Heyhihello
"Anumati" by E.S. Posthumus
"Tracks in the Snow" by The Civil Wars
"Can't Hold On" by Melee
"You & I" by IU
"Forever Yours" by Alex Day
"White is in the Winter Night" by Enya
Well, that was fun. Until the next post, take care.
