Well, what can I say. I just feel like writing something which is not related to the role of the presidency in modern American government. So a blog post it shall be...
Today I've been decorating my apartment (it's quite late, I know) I haven't really been in a Christmas kind of mood at all this December, but then today it hit me right in the face - and it felt good. I've been listening to Chris Rea's 'Driving Home for Christmas' all day whilst drinking cinnamon/vanilla flavoured coffee. AND I also managed to put together a short Christmas video, hooray for me.
School has been killing me lately, I had to do a 15 min presentation on 'Punk and Thatcherism' which I barely survived and at the moment I'm struggling with a 10 page essay on the US presidency which is due on Monday, then I have Exams on the 2nd, 6th and 8th of January - two of which i feel completely unprepared for. I know I could easily get a sick note and just take them this summer instead, but then that would just give me a double up of exams in June... gah. There's no easy way around it I suppose.
And then there's my little Christmas shopping issue, I thought it was a really clever decision to purchase all of them online about a week ago, however, only ONE has actually turned up.. which means that the rest will not arrive in time for Christmas, so yeah, I'll have to go christmas shopping on Monday the twentyFREAKINGsecond of December - GREAT!
Okay, despite the obvious self pity in 2nd and 3rd paragraph of this blog post, I would like to announce that I am feeling quite happy today, and I am looking forward to spending Christmas studying.
Q: which song makes you feel christmas-y?
