Everyone seems to be winding down for Christmas…
There was a Christmas Market at the university on Friday, I’m going to numerous Christmas meals, and in less than a week I will be home*, but…
I have so much to do before then.
I have 3 exams, and a German portfolio to do this week.
Not to mention the essays I got extensions on (but I might have to leave them until the holidays now)
and everyone else seems to be getting into the Christmas spirit, but I have no time.
And then there’s Christmas presents… I was looking forward to buying presents, but somehow I’m running out of time for my Christmas shopping… This means stress stress stress!
I’ve got to find a Christmas present for Mr Maps by Friday (for Secret Santa), and I can’t think of a single thing I could get him… Plus, the one novelty gift shop that would’ve been my first shop to look in in Lancaster is now gone…
Sorry for the rambling rant. I guess I’ll just have to go full steam ahead for one last week, and then I can breathe a sigh of relief for a month, before it all starts again… (*groans*)
Oh, and how could I forgot? Then there is the ordeal of ACTUAL CHRISTMAS, which is most likely going to be very tiring for me (pretending to be happy) or, if I don’t pretend to be happy, I will be told “cheer up, it’s Christmas” numerous times, before eventually I get angry and leave. I don’t think that second one is an acceptable option, so pretending to be happy it is then!
How is everyone else’s Christmas shopping going? Any recommendations of amazing websites by any chance? 😀
*Well in exactly a week I will be working 8am – 6pm, but hopefully the money will be worth it!
