It’s such a wonderful day.  I just had my third exam which means I’m over half way there to the holidays.  Brandon is in the spare room wrapping my presents (came home a wee bit early hehe), and he’s going on about how lovely they and how excited he is for me to open them.  I almost cried at this thoughtfulness especially when he brought me mandarin oranges as an “early” present.  It’s been a wonderful day and I don’t think I could ask for a better one.  I’m immensely blessed with a wonderful boyfriend who loves me as much as he does.  Parents who have provided for me and love me, a cheeky brother who is adorable and fun.  I’m also blessed to be able to get an education that very few in the world are able to.  I complain about it, but I love every moment of it (well minus writing essays XD).  I have a roof over my head and I have lovely things around me.  I think that this year has been lovely and just full to the brim of blessings.

What are you thankful for this year?

I really should be studying.  I am doing a good job thus far.  But all that enlightenment and Hegellian Dialectics just bore me (well that’s a lie, I do love me some Hegel).  However, I’m just not in the mood to study.  I know I know, how horrible.  But I’m enjoying the time alone this afternoon.  I’ve got some wonderful music on in the background and it’s snowing outside.  I’ll have some tea on soon and enjoy its warmth when I return to my textbooks and the history of Expansionist Europe.

Time has been going by so fast lately.  It’s actually kind of scary because I increasingly feel like I can’t catch up to it.  Yet, at the same time, it’s not so bad, because I’m done with my essays already and soon I’ll be done with exams, hence the title of this blog.  Christmas is slowly creeping up and with that lovely turkey dinners and christmas smells.  I almost want to get a candle just to make my apartment smell like christmas when i’m not cooking christmas related goodies.  Mmmm.

Winter coats.  I FINALLY got a nice fashionable wonderfully warm winter coat.  It’s blue, and felt and has a double row of buttons and i love it.  I took so pictures tonight so in the next couple days I’ll try to get them up.  But I absolutely love it.  I’ve worn it every day so far.  Haha.

Also, in other celebratory news, I’m done my classes for school.  I have a wonderful two – three weeks ahead where once I’m done exams I can relax and enjoy life and it shall be swell.  I cannot wait for christmas and I have such lovely plans laid for the boy.  Mmm.  I love the season.  I love the meaning it holds, the feeling of it all.  Everyone just SEEMS happier and it’s just a nicer place to live in.  The best part though is getting presents for people and wrapping them up.  I’ve put two under our tree and I just love looking at them and looking forward to when they’ll be opened by the people they’re intended for.  It shall be grand.

What are your christmas plans?  Is it a big deal for you?  Or do you treat it like any other day?
