First off, seriously. Nothing offends me more when you completely consider one meaning of the holidays to be true and another to “unreal” or “not the true meaning.” It’s about the feeling it brings, the emotions it holds within us all, the joy of everything around you. Don’t you dare judge anyone for what the feeling should be. It’s personal and you should respect others opinions. I thought that was the most important message anyway. I swear.
BUT anyway, it’s almost 5AM and I am eleven years old so I am awake after three hours of sleep. I might as well go downstairs and hug the damn Christmas tree until the sun comes up. I’m actually kind of tired now so I’ll see how far this blog post goes (going well so far, don’t ya think?)
Blog, I’m sorry. It’s been a while. I have missed my ability to write in more than 140 characters and I hope you will forgive me someday when I’m not in college and working a ton. My year has been AWESOME!
Actually, I’m gonna talk about this past semester more so keep up! First, I love my minor. I am learning about Film and it’s actually quite easy for me since I love me some movies. I got to watch a great selection of movies on my “long ass Tuesdays” (with film watching blocks of classes), everything from Citizen Kane to Winter’s Bone (which both different yet equally rule.) and I can’t wait to take more classes next semester. It’s actually somewhat nice to be in a class where I feel like I can actually understand the content and the professors are all champions!
I’M DONE WITH MATH. OH MY GOSH. Those words are coming out of my mouth. I mean seriously. It’s great to finally be done. Stats, you were a pain but I conquered you ALL IN PART to my amazing teacher (for serious, if you’re taking Elem. Stats at JMU, WATSON. ALL THE WAY.) She was awesome, a sweet lady. She even yelled at me while I was laughing at stuff on Reddit during class. I respect her. Sorry miss, I even went and apologized. So awesome.
And that damn CS class, as usual. Pain in my rump but I passed. Learned some cool languages, figured out I can actually figure out recursion (still a pain), and that’s about all on that. MOVING ON!
CHRISTMAS, WHOA. It’s Christmas. IT IS LITERALLY CHRISTMAS DAY! My favorite time of year. I’m just saying this now because I don’t think anyone’s ever asked me before so here it is. I consider myself to be a Christian, I mean I can’t say much but I have never actually been to a church service. I like to look at Religion as somewhat how my outlook on life. It’s all about the greater good. The idea of something to believe in, peace unto others, all of that. I have seen it shine through some of my friends and it’s truly that power of love and care that makes me believe. If you have an issue with this, you can seriously just deal. THIS IS A PART OF MY VIEW. Not the entire thing. This is a blog, not a sermon. Don’t feed me your opinions, I don’t to you (other than like kickass music or movies to check out, duh.) There it is. Plain and simple. And nothing beats the idea of Christmas to me. I love giving to the Salvation Army. I love wishing people a Merry Christmas. I love shopping and giving cards to people you care about far away. It’s a simple text message wish of solitude. It snows in December. People seem to start looking outward to one another. The giving of presents. How could one night like that? Christmas specials, music, movies. IT’S THE JOY, CHARLIE BROWN!
But this is my favorite holidays because it’s an excuse for me to tell people around them how much I care about them. I love my life. I wouldn’t ask for a do over for anything. I have the strongest group of people around me a guy could ever ask to be friends with. My family is the most solid foundation a kid could ever grow up with. I have a roof over my head and a blanket over my body (but no forreal, it’s so comfortable. I think I got it at Target or something.)
So thanks for reading, thanks for caring. I hope you get all you are looking for this year and this holiday season. Live your life positive. Set motions forward. Be happy.
Man, this blog kinda rules. I love being tired and being able to ramble. READING THIS WAS FUN RIGHT?! But seriously, go watch some Charlie Brown Christmas or like Youtube search “Ambient Fireplace”. I’m gonna catch up on some sleep. YULELOG!
