In college student world, Christmas practically appears out of NOWHERE. You’re studying, it’s finals, cramming to see everyone before break and then all of a sudden it’s December 23 and then you’re like “oh yeah, I should wear my Santa earrings”. Not this year! My apartmentmates and I purchased a lovely artificial tree, and because at Meredith I know how rumors get started, I would like to make clear, BATTERY operated Christmas lights (which are a pain, by the way. Don’t ever do it, it’s not worth it). My sweet boyfriend’s momma gave me a cute array of Christmas decorations, including a snow globe and advent calendar type thing (which has an attached Christmas tree to count, but I intend to put chocolate in the little pockets), for my birthday so needless (and kind of cheesily) to say, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in apartment 1209.
Happy Holidays. And be on the look-out for a holiday e-card from us. No really.
