It’s that time of year full of joy, cheer, and the spirit of giving. Christmas is something that I’m sure many of us associate with being broke. For me, I have 5 family members to shop for, as well as several friends, which leaves me with a very sad wallet (student life has is perks – being rich is not one of them). This year I also had to add some last minute names to my gift list when I was informed by another friend that my Christmas present was in the post, meaning that I had to buy a gift for them now. I most likely sound very ungrateful, but I did not budget for extra people! I’m also very guilty of spending just a bit more than intended on individual gifts, which adds up to quite a lot more in total! There’s also the sales. I am a weak person and I like buying things. Sales are cruel to me when I can’t buy things for myself. Such suffering. My life is so hard. Please apply sarcasm where you feel it is appropriate.
Complaints aside, I really do love Christmas. The carols drive me crazy and I’m horrified that the decoration sales started in September, but I always feel cheerful when December starts.
I don’t really have a favourite thing this week, but my favourite thing that happened this week was that my best friend got married. Congratulations to her and her new husband!
