Hello, Blogland, and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
There’s a lot to be thankful for, not the least of which is that I have such amazing people around me… Another thing to be thankful for is that it is now socially acceptable to listen to Christmas music. I know it’s cheesy, but I adore Christmas… and it’s just so hard not to be in a good mood while listening to Christmas music. I love rock covers of classic Christmas songs and the classics. Fair warning… as Christmas approaches, I may get kinda perky… and stressed, too! Exams are in two weeks. WHAT THE HECK, WHERE DID MY SEMESTER GO!?
So yeah, here comes STRESS. But my advice to everyone dealing with exam season… persevere. It is tough. Even I am wont to go a little crazy, what with all the projects and papers, but it will soon be over and Christmas break will be here. If it’s anything like this break, it’ll be amazing.
You all remember Scott? My boyfriend (who I have mentioned here and there) and I spent yesterday together and tomorrow we are going to go to a concert down in Richmond. Conditions, The Greater the Risk, Mayfair, Safety Word Orange, and Life on Repeat are playing… they’re all semi-local bands, though they’re starting to get kind of big in alternative rock scenes (SWO also came to Longwood last year for Bandfest. Thanks, Lancer Productions, for getting me into them. SO GOOD.) and I’m super excited to see them all. Especially since I’m going with Scott. It sounds super cheesy, but I like going to concerts with him. We listen to a lot of the same music, so concerts are always epic when we go together.
And of course, who can forget my family? I went to a big gathering for my mom’s side of the family and then headed home for dinner with Dad and my stepfamily (who I consider to be family, so it’s cool) today. I AM SO FULL. I seriously need to sleep some of this food off. I’m not as full as when I did the two dinners/one day thing last year, but I’m still ready to go collapse into a massive turkey coma. It was amazing to just hang out with my family and some neighbors of ours…
My one regret is that this break is so short. I know I’ll be back home in 2 weeks or so, but I need to get some time in with my best friends at home (who I call The Amigas)… and Christmas shop. It’s our Christmas tradition to all go out, shop, and make that an Amiga Christmas Party (PS: Anyone have good ideas for gifts to get dads? My dad is always so difficult to buy for!) …and papers. Such are the regrets of English majors!
Everyone enjoy Thanksgiving break and go sleep off Turkey Comas! Peace and love, Blogland!
