So I just got done work and am relaxing, and thinking and so forth.
Christmas is how you make it really, if you think it’ll suck it will if you think it will be great it will be. And then there are people like me aha that are stuck in the middle, I think Christmas is great (besides the materialism aspect tho) I love the idea of seeing all your friends and family and just spending time together.
Now what I don’t like, really and its unchangeable is the fact that my mom is no longer here – over the last year I have taken this and used as a drive for my ambition – in a positive way. Being me I always try to be positive, and I achieved many goals over 2014.
But I really just was not feeling the whole Christmas spirit – until a rather small gesture kinda made my wholeee day :3 So this pretty-fucking-amazing-asfuck-guy gave me a call (well 3 calls actually); like I said rather small gesture but Jesus did it make my day. I was on time (kinda) for work and I had a perma-smile on my face. Like seriously guys you have no clue how amazing it was just to talk on the phone with someone whom you can’t see on Christmas that you care about.
Which brings me to the semi conclusion of this blog, small gestures guys- you don’t need to spend every last fuckin penny you have on someone to show them you care. All it took for me is a call and I’m on like cloud 9. Not to get corny or anything it’s the small things that count :3
Have a merry Christmas and remember that it’s not about what you get, it’s about what you do for others and what you give that matters the most, alongside the small things in life ; appreciate the people around you cherish every moment because one day they won’t be there. Also the small things ❤
Well after a Happening (around Christmas ), that happening being getting drunk past the point of remembrance and sickness. I said I will never drink but what I meant to say is that I will not drink excessively again – because well a glass of wine or apple cider once in a while is just nice sometimes.
But yea that sucked. I was definitely dying, no doubt.
I have learnt my limits.
Also the never say never was inspired from Justin Bieber – haha no actually it was wise words from my very good friend Jessie.
Mine were good except I’m not a very holiday-y person, I like to spend time with people and stuff my face but when it comes it gift giving or receiving I rather just not take part in it. I feel like that is all Christmas is about.
Maybe it is because I’m rebellious, maybe it is because of something else.
Growing up I would remember my parents getting gifts for me and my brother and leaving bills unpaid until they had more money. This probably has to do with my sour image of Christmas, I mean why must we spend tones of money to make kids happy or our friends and family feel loved by us ? I feel like children grow up with more expectations and a massive materialistic ideologies. It’s disgusting, some kids are a third my age and have phones and new high tech gadgets and probably don’t even know what monopoly or play-dough is !
Now on a more personal level, I really just don’t want to get 30 different people gifts, honestly “ain’t nobody got time for that” and I ain’t got the money for that either. But I do like the idea of pulling a name out of a hat and buying that one person a gift, it’s more “user friendly” in my opinion. I’m not selfish, I’m not greedy, I don’t only want gifts, I couldn’t be bothered if no one even gave me anything as long as I got to eat some turkey 🙂 But I know just saying all of this I’ll probably be regarded as a scrooge or something like so.
And our children (I do not have any), the younger generations they are just so goddamn materialistic. For example my own younger brother the first thing I heard out of his mouth when I seen him over the holiday was “What did you get me ?!??!?!?!?!?” My reaction was disgust and then to slap him upside the head, of course I didn’t do that but still. Is this really what it is about? Seeing each other and having a big dinner talking about the ol’ times to me is better than the contrary.
What are your opinions of the holidays ?
What did you get if you get anything?
How do you gift give, pull a name out of a hat or give something to everyone ?
So this past Christmas Eve marks the 2 year anniversary of this blog, mind you I have been sparse in blogging the last little while since June. The reason for this is because my life has been off of balance. And I have lacked motivation to blog and open up because quite honestly my life or more specifically the quality of life I have been living is one not worth talking about. But on a small good note it has been getting better I’m making more and more changes that are becoming a life style I enjoy living. Did anyone notice above that I started my blog on the day before Christmas ? WELL obviously I was bored :p I really want to be more consistent with blogs, I have a list of about 8 I want to do. And since you are reading this I can promise you readers I will blog these 8 and then some 🙂
How long have you been blogging for if you blog ? Link me up 🙂
If you don’t have a blog, go make one 🙂 or explain why you don’t ;P
If you don’t know what or who the grumpy cat is shame, shame on you.
Everyone keeps saying it’ll get better soon, and all I can think of is picture #2 below. No. It wont and if it does it doesn’t make up for everything that has happened. My dog ate my retainer, I ruined my hand, all I’m thinking is: What’s next?
The first photo represents my current situation. I hate mornings and having to wake up. And since I can’t do much I can’t wait to go back to bed.
I find that currently he represents me.
so an update on my little hand situation (for those of you who have no clue what I’m talking about visit here: http://wp.me/p2dJgx-3k ) I went to school yesterday and everything was fine and ok, I had emailed my teachers about it so they knew. And yes of course one teacher made a thing about it but it’s all good, just a little embarrassing. And as suspected I am a VERY SLOW at typing, and I did not even try hand writing. actually I did for a friend I showed her how slow I write my name. Not fun.
Besides this, I will in fact call myself stupid because I keep unwrapping my hand , I know I’m not supposed to but it hurts and is so swollen and the only time I get relief is when It’s unwrapped with ice on it. I also keep by accident trying to use it and end up causing pain. I’m also a huge klutz, I’ve always been klutz but now with only one had available I tend to make more mess’s such as breaking glasses trying to make a coffee, hanging up a towel and knocking everything on my counter down, drop a pot and a knife both almost on my toe and you know just trip, fall, drop, walk into and everything else a klutz would do.
On the funnier side of things my boyfriend compare me to a squirrel who got hit by a car and is trying to help it’s self- I know twisted humour this morning. Context: I had 1/2 of my shirt on and was stuck and he had to help me continue to get ready. Ultimate fail, or even better fail whale. I’ll just shut up now.
I feel like I wouldn’t be able to get through this without a few things and they are (in no particular order…) My boyfriend, friends, comedy (or laughing at myself) of course my puppy and anyone who’s super supportive 🙂 (oh yess the mushiness of these comments)
As is everything’s hard to do and frustrating and if I can’t joke about it then there is absolutely no point. Lets hope nothing else happens till after the new year 🙂
