Hello and welcome to December! I hope everyone’s Thanksgiving was adequate. I am not too much of a Thanksgiving fan (I am not that into the food and dark orange is not a good color scheme for me) but regardless I had a fun weekend. It was full of highs and lows.
Highs: Seeing my cousins, high school friends, spending quality time with my parents/sister. Lows: Having a flat tire and being too exhausted/full to function properly for most of the weekend. All and all I would say it was a draw.
But enough about Thanksgiving! That’s old news now. The turkeys are gone, and Black Friday has ended, meaning that the holiday season is now officially upon us. It is a time of laughter and joy and presents, but also of stress and long simmering resentments. What a time to be alive!
It is only the first day, so the true month of holiday excitement has not yet begun, but still, things are beginning! Multiple best-of-2014 lists are being created (Slate has one about books, as does Amazon.) Advent calenders are ready to be eaten. Its generally an exciting time, even if this few weeks mark the time of the year when I am at peak panic levels, trying to finish off all of the work I have neglected to do all semester. This year it is worse than ever, with the added bonus that this is my last semester, making motivating myself harder than ever. The important thing to focus on however is CHRISTMAS THINGS.
So with that, I will leave you my favorite Christmas song, to get everyone excited (or depressed, it is not the most cheerful of songs.) Happy December!
