Christmas lights are appearing in strange places, decorations are popping up on dorm room doors, and there’s snow on the ground outside my window. I think it’s just about time to get excited for the holidays. And since I don’t really have a lot of time right now to go out and buy decorations (aka break from studying..) then I’ll just get into the spirit on my blog. Lame, huh? Well, the holiday dinner at the caf last week was festive. Rumour has it they served us wine and eggnog at our tables, and the menu was prime rib and ricotta-stuffed turkey rolls. Mmmhmm good. I’m happy they did that for us. :) Wish there had been a dance though! Haha.
I was thinking about this blog post and was unsure what all to write. But I’ve decided on what seems to be a bit of a blog cliché, which is helping readers brainstorm gift ideas for their loved (or not-so-loved) ones. Whatever, it’s a fun idea, so as overdone as it might be, here’s my take.

…So that’s it on the gift front. Not sure about how much, if any of that I will be buying for the people on my list, I’m so broke! I might try to make them all some jam or something instead and put in the effort instead of the dollar dollar bills.
Got through my first exam unscathed (I think). It went well enough that I feel good about it, it wasn’t a giant slap to the face, so that’s enough for me. The studying commenced today for the next two possible injuries: physics and calculus. I think I can pull them off, easily as long as I keep working hard. That’s what I keep telling myself at least.
Only 12 days until I’m home! Can you believe it?!? So, so excited.
ps. It’s supposed to snowstorm tomorrow. It’d be nice to have a quiet, warm, pampered, tea-filled study day in my room for a change. The library is starting to get to me.
