well hello there.
i suppose it has been a little while! i wish i could say i've just been soooooo busy with my ever exciting whirlwind of a life! alas, this would be a lie. we are creatures of habit and i am no exception. my habit just happens to be watching multiple episodes of community while knitting (i don't even know what i'm making anymore. it used to be a scarf but now it's just gotten too fat and i think i'll just end up hot gluing a ribbon to it and making it a bonnet that i'll never wear.)
hannukah has started! for those of you unaware of this fact, you obviously do not go to a predominantly jewish school in the valley like myself.
i love hannukah so much. i've gotten to the age where i'm starting to get very self-aware about my presents in the way that i over think it to the point of almost ruining it for myself (notice the ALMOST). how much did this cost what if i never wear this why does a material object bring me so much joy this isn't right i need to spend more time with my family AAAAGH. end inner monologue.
this kind of over thinking has kind of ruined my journaling experience as well. ever since reading Dear Diary (by Lesley Arfin -- i HIGHLY recommend it) every time i write an entry all i can think about is what people will think when they read it 20 years later. my narcissism combined with my ocd has really started to get in the way of my personal reflection periods!
a word of advice: if you haven't started community, DON'T. you will get hooked and not do your homework and isolate yourself from society (they have EVERY EPISODE on hulu!) i've already started my own Go Ask Alice (hannukah present) style book in which a girl becomes hooked on sitcoms due to her hulu plus account and netflix subscription. please buy it so i can renew my hulu plus subscription. i don't think i could go back to the hardship of waiting 7 WHOLE DAYS to watch the mindy project.
also: the time of year has finally arrive when it is socially acceptable for me to love christmas music! (kind of) listen to my favorite holiday tunes below.
i think that just about untangles my mind for the moment.
i promise i won't keep you waiting so long again. i know how hard that was for both of us.
