Yes everyone, Christmas is looming just around the corner. In fact, it is only 5 days away and yes, you’ve guessed it – I have bought NONE of my Christmas presents yet, absolutely nothing… But no, not due to the usual procrastination, due to college. This year my course co-odrinators decided to change our Final Year Project times to a very intense 10 weeks with the submission time@ 5pm on December 20th, 5 DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS! This has literally taken over my life and I have not had time to breath, particularly in the last 3-4 weeks. Although this has been stressful to say the least, my silver lining has finally arrived. I literally just submitted it. Printed, bound and beautiful I felt like I was sending my child off into the big, bad world and in one split second the world seemed like a much easier place to live in just by dropping it, no, not dropping it, placing it very VERY carefully, into the collection box.
With all of the stress out of the way it’s now time to do exactly what the little baby Jesus intended – drink, eat and be merry! Tonight I’m going to my friend’s house and we are going to party like we’ve never partied before. I’m looking forward to 2 weeks of utter relaxation in which I sit in front of the fire, watching bad Christmas movies in the most comfortable clothes imaginable whilst eating my weight in Ferrero Roché – I am literally salivating as I type. Of course I now still have to get all of my presents and I have to study for the exam that’s on the 2ND DAY AFTER WE GET BACK (my course co-ordinators are dick-heads), but for now those problems are tomorrow’s.
Here’s hoping that all of you guys are ready to take on Christmas with as much excitement as I am and for those of you who still have deadlines in the next few days, don’t worry – there is a silver lining 😉
Now, I’m off to the chipper to begin my long awaited affair with my Christmas diet.
Talk to you all later,
