Here’s To The Holidays
by Tiffany Kennedy
Ah, ’tis the season, or, it was the season?
I went from eating the most delicious lunch on Christmas Day to eating questionable food on an airplane during Boxing Day, a change my stomach was not prepared for. I’m currently sitting on an airplane, in the window seat, trying to make room for my laptop, hard-drive, books, notepad, pens and more. Sometimes it seems a little ridiculous. I hope I’m not annoying any of the other passages either, but I am sticking within my little ‘cubical’.
After opening presents on Christmas morning, which didn’t bring as much delight as when I was a lot younger, I was still happy with the presents that I got from my family, and the everything else that I got from my friends a week earlier. For me, I kind of prefer gift giving, though, like most people, I do kind of feel a little sad when I notice that another hasn’t put in as much effort into their gift for me, as I have for theirs. I seem to be an avid gift giver. I guess I’m a sentimental person, so everything I give someone has sentimental value, and some of them are just funny jokes that I share with a them. Such as this one time, I went to this place to eat with my friend and they had games there, such as connect four. He says ‘I’m such a pro at connect four, I win every time,’ boasting about his connect four achievements. Too bad that I beat him at every single game. So for Christmas, I got him a wooden connect four set, because the look on his face was priceless.
This is the time of year that comes with ups and downs, and it’s certainly the busiest. Christmas may have been a family day, but that doesn’t mean that there won’t be arguments or awkward situations, but it’s family I suppose. It’s just nice having everyone there together. But now I’m on a plane that’s shaking slightly with the tiniest bit of turbulence, watching Bob’s Burgers on my laptop, as I edit footage, images and new posts, since this is basically the most down time I’ve had recently.
I hope you all had a Merry Christmas, and now I’ll have to find some wifi to upload this post.
