Guest post of the week by Val Flores
Last year for Christmas my parents got me so many gifts that I didn’t particularly have much use for. My dad told me that I needed to get some more professional clothes to wear to work but I try to explain to him that the required dress for my job is business casual not super formal like he’s use to wearing for his job. Dad also purchased some power tools hoping that I would actually find the time to use them around my apartment. I felt like laughing because we have a maintenance man who is employed by the apartment complex and they actually frown upon renter’s trying to repair things on their own. The gifts from my mom weren’t much better, she managed to get a list of ten books that I have never mentioned wanting before in my life along with some toys for a dog that she thought I had. The one bright spot from the entire Christmas season came when my friend told me about Cable TV packages Artesia and it was without a doubt the best gift I had received.
