Dear December

Sunday, 21 December 2014

Even this letter is a great example of how behind I am with things lately. It may be the most wonderful time of the year but it seems to be the most stressful time of the year as well. 
I don’t like to brag but it is 4 days until the big day and I have all my shopping done, wrapped and ready to go, I’m normally saying that in the middle of November but I honestly don’t know what’s happened this year!

I feel as if this is my first Christmas as an adult, I’ve been working full time in retail and had two days off a week, leaving me next to no time to do my shopping/decorate/make mince pies/gingerbread/write Christmas cards. Christmas has come around way too fast for my liking.

It’s also the first year that I’ve been earning my own money so my Christmas list has about 4 things on it, two of which being chocolate based. Truth is there’s lots of things I want for Christmas but you can’t buy things like world peace and a better job. 

Celebrating the festive season both as a child and an adult is just as exciting, but in different ways. You see when you’re young it’s all about the presents and the last week of term where you spend the last few days watching films and eating chocolate and laughing at your teachers and their ridiculous dancing. But when you’re an adult it becomes more about family and celebrating and spending the entire month of December ever so slightly drunk. I thoroughly enjoy both options. 

2014 has a been quite a year, I turned 18, finally got the courage together to go to the doctor about my anxiety, meet some really great people, started going out more, and I SAID YES TO EVERY INVITATION (well, most). I made it one of my new years resolutions to become more social and go out with friends more and I managed to stick to it, I’m just as introverted as before but it was fun!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
