The 15th of December, coincidently, the 15th week of this term and four days until the end of it. Let me tell you, this is no minor detail. It’s huge. It’s all anybody’s talking about, there is a vague buzz going about the school of happiness and a sudden weird burst of energy from somewhere. It’s the final push before Christmas and everyone wants it now. Not just the staff though, obviously the kids as well. And I totally get it, I remember coming up to the last week of term, knowing that Friday meant a 1pm finish and then the festivities could begin. Except this time with the end of term approaching I can look forward to travelling back and forth from Stockport, York and Garforth and sophisticated presents that I can use in every day life. But most of all I can look forward to settling down with a Baileys and hot chocolate or a fruity cider on a night and enjoying a glass of the classic Bucks Fizz on Christmas Day. Won’t it be wonderful?? Yes, growing up has its downsides like paying for things, work, stress and taxes etc but to be honest since turning the ripe old age of 22 (drastic, I know) I’m realising that there are many more good things to being an adult than I thought.
I’ve been an adult for a while now, obviously, and I’ve been living independently for over three years but since starting full time work I’ve really stated to think about life and how humans work; whether I agree with it or not 😉 and such.
Life is hard, but it’s times like Christmas that really make it great and I really appreciate everything that I have (even though I’m really poor and would love some more dosh but whatever) no but I am grateful. And thankful. And I can’t wait to spend Christmas with everyone I love.
