december baby

Oh hello December,

I didn't recognize you. You've been so unseasonably warm. I think it's just Murphy's Law. Last year when I went home for Thanksgiving break, I didn't bring my winter coat and I froze my butt off. So, this year I brought it home thinking I wouldn't get outsmarted again. So what do you do? You change it up. I have barely used my coat at all so far.

Not that I'm complaining! I hate the cold. I hate how all of your muscles tense up as you brace yourself against the wind. But I do love the smell of cold and the feeling of warming up after you've been outside for a long time. It makes warm blankets that much more rewarding.

10 days away from freedom!! This will be my last post until I get home. 3 finals, 3 papers & 1 group presentation until I'll be free at least! Well, at least temporarily.

Side note: Aren't these swirls so interesting? Whenever I pass them, I try to imagine how they could have gotten there. My best guess is it was some metal wiring and it stayed there so long that dirt built up around it leaving this ghost image. I mean, or aliens...

xo,
A.

PS. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DADDY! The best father in the world who has always supported me in everything that I do.
