How To Find Holiday Spirit

It has been three days and I haven’t posted anything, though not for lack of trying. I think my problem has been that I’ve been getting too sentimental, too personal. It got to the point where I couldn’t take myself seriously in the rereading of any of it. And so, I’ve decided to take a step back from the personal posts and write a list: How To Find Holiday Spirit.

Thoughts on Thoughts

I am way too early for work. Like, an hour and a half early. But class ended early and I already ate and work has wifi and it’s better to be an hour and a half early than five minutes late. The day is wet and gloomy. I can see the peak of what looks like a castle in the distance, but it’s probably just a church or something. Still, looks cool.

Treat Yo Self!

I’ve been watching entirely too much Parks and Recreation lately. (It’s a good show. I highly recommend it.) Anyway, there’s one episode where a couple of the characters take a day to treat themselves and throughout the episode they’re telling each other to “Treat Yo Self!”

That sounded great to me, so I decided to do it, on a smaller, I’m-a-broke-student scale.

Friends and Family

I'm just going to litter this post with pictures of my brother and me.

I was trying so hard to get used to the idea of my little brother getting older. For the past three months I was going around in a stupor, repeating to myself “Bub’s going to be twelve soon. Bub’s going to be twelve soon.” I convinced myself of it. Then I got home and discovered he was only going to be eleven and I picked him up in a huge hug and yelled “Thank god! You’re too little to be big!”
