I’m really excited for Christmas break – it’s a mere two days away. Three whole weeks in Nova Scotia! It’s an amazing chunk of time to be taking – and it’s warranted, trust me – but I get that all you working folks will be jealous. Just remember this in a couple of months when you are carefree, sitting on a beach in Cuba or gallivanting through Europe as you take a much deserved vacation: when you’re relaxing, I am buried among the books. Fair is fair.
Since I’m actually supposed to be finishing up a paper… I’ll keep this short and sweet with a quick list of the things I’m most looking forward to over the holiday break.
- Running errands with my brother. One of my favourite ways to spend time with my little bro is when he’s behind the wheel. I love driving around aimlessly and he likes to burn gas, so we’re a good match. Most likely though, we’ll be sent out on multiple searches for last-minute christmas needs by Ma. I’m betting on: scotch tape, booze, goat cheese, and something gluten-free (for me!).
- Movie nights at home with my parents. PJ’s, ice cream, and a good ol’ rom-com (yep, my dad’s favourite, I swear) and we’re set for an awesome night in. Bonus points for possible additions of hot toddies and snow softly falling outside the window.
- Seeing the christmas tree lit up. I’ll probably sit and stare at it for a while. Michael Buble will be playing on a loop in the background.
- A repeat of this (below) from last year. I hope everyone still knows where their beards are…!
Happy Christmas, everyone!
I’ll be posting over the holidays, intermittently. Stay tuned for a the regular #5things and my annual year-end review/reflection.
