Christmas 2011

I woke up smiling. It's finally Christmas! Even though it's the first time that Santa didn't left presents for us (because my younger siblings just found out about him), At last, I can feel the Christmas spirit.

I got a Celestron PowerSeeker 60AZ for Christmas!! I don't know where my parents got the idea - I'm not really that 'into' astronomy - But I really like the telescope.

After going to church, we went to my cousin's house to eat dinner. Some of my second cousins and other relatives from my mom side were also there (it has become some sort of habit to go there every Christmas) even though most have already left. We just watched a movie while eating dinner and hung out for a bit.

It sucks that I can't talk to my cousins because i find it awkward especially in front of my family. I think I'm just not accustomed to speak to other people while my family is around (weird huh?). Plus, I haven't talked to them in ages.

After a while one of my favorite "second cousins" arrived. He used to be a clown, though I'm not sure if he already quit that job or not. He's around 10+ years older than me and I used to like his magic tricks ever since I was little. He also used to teach me some of his tricks then, and that was the last time I saw him until now.

Today he brought two big bags of magic props, because my cousin asked him to perform for the party later. He performed two magic tricks to us and as usual, we were amazed. Today is the first time my younger brother saw this guy, and I can see that he's as amazed as I am when I first saw my cousin's magic tricks when I was at that age.

Alas, we had to go home and I didn't get to see any more of the tricks. My sister and my brother asked my parents to let them stay, but I also want to spend time with my parents so I didn't ask to stay. On the way home, I asked my mom what my relation really was to those people there. And to my surprise, I found out that they (even the ones younger than me) are actually my aunts and uncles. It turned out that one of their parents are siblings of my grandmother. And I just found out about all these now.

Although I didn't get to speak to them, (because of shyness?) I can still feel that we are still connected. And although this sounds cheesy, I felt that words doesn't matter that much in this case.

So have you looked at the stars yet with your telescope?

yup! They (the stars) all look the same though haha.

I also just looked at jupiter and four of it's moons xD with jupiter if you observe closely, you'll notice that the circular light actually has stripes on it. Plus the moons! I like how you can still see them and compare their size to the huge planet.
