1st December represents a very important date for me. I can begin opening the windows on my advent calendar. What’s more exciting than that? A chocolate a day keeps the doctor away…
1st December also represents that I have 13 sleeps until my big exam. That’s a bit depressing.
December means that I have a run of night shifts leading up to Christmas – which I love. I prefer working the night shift. They fly by quicker. Whilst the rest of the world sleeps, I’m working. I can have a quick look in the shops early in the morning, go home to bed and sleep the day away.
December also means that my brother and I can get the Christmas Tree out and decorate it in our tasteless fashion. I have a feeling that Nanna goes and redecorates it when we’re not looking, but we think it looks terrific when we’ve finished with it.
Most importantly for me, December means that Christmas is just down the road. For me, this means that my next trip to Wales is just over a month away.
I love the run up to Christmas, even if the big day itself feels a bit like an anti-climax. I love the colours, the lights, the music, the smells and the tastes. December is usually always a good month.
My mind is always working. I’m always thinking, wondering, questioning and analysing. Currently, these are the top 7 which are crossing my mind a lot.
- Will I regret the decisions I make now when I am older? When I say ‘older’, I’m referring to when I reach my 70s and beyond.
- Is there any luck in my lucky bamboo?
- I’m always thinking about my next burger. Where will I have it? When? Will it be a good one? Or will I regret eating it?
- I’m thinking a lot about my exam which is in 29 days. I’ve begun revising already. There’s no harm in being prepared. I’m worrying that nothing will stick in my mind. I’ve been doing practice exam questions to try writing against the clock, and I feel that I am doing quite well, but in past experiences, it goes wrong when I get into the exam hall. Positive thinking. I re-ask the question I posed in point 2.
- I’m thinking that I need a 2016 calendar. I’ve been thinking this for a while. But I want one with squares in it for the days. I can’t find a plain one in the supermarkets.
- I wonder if I’ll get a “lucky break” that some people talk about.
- The scientist in me is in awe of how our bodies function. I think about that quite a bit.
At the moment, given my current circumstances, my favourite quote is:
Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.
It’s a very fitting quote! I don’t know where it comes from. Perhaps someone can enlighten me?
