all I want.

‎"Maybe Christmas, she thought, doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more"

Merry Christmas. I hope you're all spending time with those you love most.

i need another story

December will be a busy month.

Christmas - gift hunting, wrapping and giving, get-togethers, dinners, stuffing my face, etc.

Car hunting - my trusty Plymouth Breeze blew a gasket, causing it to leak oil like a --. For now, I am continuously pouring oil down its throat until I can find a replacement/the engine seizes.

House hunting - Taylor and I's lease is up February 1st, and he is moving back in with his parents to go to school full-time. I'll be moving in with Celeste, the girl who took his room for three months while he was gone in Peru. I will miss Chaircat, but not her endless amount of loose fur. My couch will also not miss Chaircat.

and around all of that - Packing! As I will be leaving for Portugal Jan 1st and not returning until the 27th (yes, yes I am doing it - I am going on my adventure!), I must pack up my life this month so when I return to this side of the world I can move on out to my new digs.

I believe I can do this. Fortunately for me I work in a coffee shop. Caffeine will be ever-present in my body the next few weeks.

Wish me luck and above all, productivity.

only in dreams

Notes to self:

- The only person that can decide you're having a bad day is you

- You must live your life the way you want to - or it is not truly yours

- Treat others the way you wish to be treated

- Don't dwell on things you don't have any control over

- Don't waste your day waiting for something to come to you - seek it out

- You are young now, but also responsible for who you are when you're older

- Drink more water

- Sleep when you're old
