The Silly Season
* Pre note: I actually started writing this at the start of December...maybe even before...
Christmas is coming up fast, isn’t it? Over here, it’s known as the ‘silly season’. Hence the title.
For most of you, the anticipation of the season includes hot drinks, cosy jumpers (sweaters, whatever) and snuggling up with a good book. For me, it means turning on the air conditioner, making cold snacks and figuring out how to not sweat my clothes in public (or at home, for that matter).
As some of you know from comments, I have just commenced online University. I’m still getting over the fact! It happened all very quickly. I’m sure you are busting to know what I’m studying, so here it is, a unit in each of the following: Academic Literacies, Sociological Foundations, Statistics, and Psychology, plus two prep units.

SO, Christmas is next week isn’t it? Yeah…so’s my assignment…
I really don’t have any fancy insight on Christmas this year…no sentimental tidbits…no wonderful inspirational Christmas décor ideas…no thoughts on whether “Christians should celebrate Christmas” or not…
All I have, pretty much, is just some well wishes for you guys. Merry Christmas. Happy New Year.
Almost every year, I have had a wonderful six weeks holiday from school and annoying things over the Christmas period. This year is different…I related to mum yesterday “I’m actually going to have to still study on Christmas Day”. Sad, isn’t it? It’s going to be my life for the next year…even though it’s stressful for the moment, I think I’ll enjoy it.
Anyway, I have to get back to studying. It’s a fun life, isn’t it?
Love to you guys all,
Oh, and just for the record, I completed all my Christmas shopping before the end of November
