Because hell, I am not!
How could I be? Only last week we had temperatures that were more late spring than late November and now it’s almost Christmas????? 3 weeks to go! Who’s freaked out by that as well?
I don’t feel festive at all. We don’t have a tree yet. Heck we haven’t even started to decorate a tiny single thingy. Though talking about decoration…. I am a bit opposed to decorating much this year. The apartment feels so cluttered already and adding festive clutter on top touchily disturbs my wish to de-clutter the whole apartment right now. Seriously I just haven’t started because I’d need a week off to tackle it properly and I am running out of leave. (Okay you got me I save the rest for travelling next year)
But anyways enough talking of December because I am here today to talk about… December. Oh meh that was lame!
I try again.
Let’s stop ranting about the beckoning holidays and talk about all other things that currently happen in this crazy little bubble I call my life.
Not better – I know! I stop trying now….
Current book – To be honest I don’t read much right now. I read blogs. Though if I had time to read it would be Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Current music – Hello by Adele!
Current (non) guilty pleasure – Spontaneous Pizza and Wine dates. I fucked up yesterday and almost forgot I had my PhD class in the evening. I realized at 1 pm when I was in Augsburg that I had to be in Munich by 6 pm which was kind of stressful. Not too stressful to arrange a date with the man in my life for pizza and wine after class.
Current nail colour – French! Pure, clean and totally unspectacular!
Current drink – Starbucks Pike Place Roast. My Advent Calendar is full of Starbucks coffee cups and I love it! I drink them as my second morning mug or in the afternoon to really appreciate it. The first morning cup is for sheer survival and it would be a shame to waste it that way!
Current food – White Chocolate Macadamia Granola. Yesterday morning this jar was still full!
Current obsession – dark cocoa powder. He told me and I only half believed him, thinking the dark cocoa powder I use at home is pretty fantastic anyways. I still bought three container and I am almost through the first one. I try to find a place that ships it to me without charging prices which would also buy me a meal at Buddakan!
Current wish – taking a nap
Current need – tackling my long overdue thesis stuff. Seriosly horrible but I had a mini break through at class yesterday. Mini indeed but you have to clutch at straws when you’re lazy as shit!
Current triumph – I have registered for a workout tonight. I haven’t been in three weeks and I feel good enough to go again. Fingers crossed I won’t be coughing and sneezing again tomorrow!
Current bane of my existence – all those Christmas Parties we are/ I am invited to. I don’t really like them but you can’t say no to all of them. You have to attend the family get-togethers and the work parties at least, haven’t you? And then you have to make a friendly face and be chitty chatty cause ’tis the season to be jolly….. isn’t it?
Current procrastination – Christmas shopping (that’s technically not a December topic!). December came too quickly (okay, this is!). Seriously I never wasted one thought about December with the end of November travelling absorbing all my excitement. Now I have three weeks and not a single gift. So many people were posting about christmas shopping and gift wrapping and I though ‘wow they’re early!’ until I have realized ‘FUCK I AM LATE!
Current fun – I can’t help myself but giggle!
Current blessing – Going on a mini road trip to Narnia this weekend. I am looking forward to it and hope to find me some of a festive spirt there (and maybe a few Christmas gifts). Hot Eggnog, Mulled Wine and Cocoa with Whiskey could also help. And this:
Current excitement – I dare to say it out loud: Talking about next year’s travel plans with my husband! We briefly talked about travelling next year and then found out that we had both been already looking for flights and places on google maps. What can I say, we’re both bitten by the bug 🙂
Current mood – Full blown panic! I have a presentation for my thesis in TWO WEEKS and I have yet to produce something presentable. I’ll start tomorrow. For sure! Yes, I mean it! Totally! Don’t give me that look!
Current link – youtube! Especially her channel. I find her so damn hilarious!
