Happy Advent!

Hello Humans of the Internet!  I thought that I had scheduled this post for Friday, but I didn’t.  I also didn’t notice that I hadn’t posted anything until just now.  So, I’m just going to change the title from Happy December to Happy Advent and act like I did this on purpose.  Shh! don’t tell anyone.  

Hello Humans of the internet!  It’s Friday! (Sunday).  And it’s December 1st! (3rd).  It’s the first day of December! (Advent).  I hope that you’ve all had really great weeks and really great Novembers.  I wanted to start off the month with another round of highs, lows, and uh-ohs!  I kinda want to keep doing this.  What do y’all think, the first of each month we can do highs, lows, and uh-ohs for the month that just ended?  (or the second or thiird, whichever).  I feel like it’s good for mental health (at least it’s proven good for my mental health).

November’s highs, lows, and uh-ohs:


Spending Thanksgiving with my family, naturally was really high up there on the list of highs.  Finding my notebook full of all my blog post ideas (you would think that I’d be able to remember them without the notebook, because its all stuff that happened to me.  I just forget what I’ve already talked about and what I wanted to tell y’all).  Finding my camera with all my pictures.  They were in the same place.  They were in my backpack that I put all of my writing\blogging stuff in.  I couldn’t find them for over a month…


Honestly, I’m still dealing with losing Simon.  I feel like if you’re not a critter person, you’re probably confused by that.  But, I am a critter person and Simon was a huge part of my life.  I did find this picture of Simon from before he got sick which is a high because I thought I lost all of them.  Here it is:

This was an extreme close up I took when he was showing off his then new collar. Simon was the only cat I ever knew that loved collars.

I only have two lows for this month.  The second was getting involved with the office supply wars at work.  I’m ashamed of myself for that.


Surprisingly, I don’t have a lot of uh-ohs this month.  Just two.  I broke a bracelet that I had just bought for $20.  I don’t regret buying it, even though it was expensive because I bought it from Me to We and money went to education for girls.  I really liked this bracelet and I’ve only had it for like 3 weeks.  and I bumped it on the vinyl heat press at work (which was 320 F.)  It instantly melted the elastic band inside and teeny tiny grey and blue glass beads went everywhere…all over the grey and blue floor.  On the bright side, I was able to save some of the bracelet and I can still wear it.  Also, I didn’t burn my arm which definitely would have considering the temperature of the heat press.

I think I’m becoming a Christmas person.  I’m considering this an uh-oh as it is very embarrassing for me because I’m not a Christmas person.  I’m an angsty, Halloween, wears-black-lipstick, drinks-out-of-a-cup-shaped-like-a-skull person.  I don’t get excited when I see Christmas decorations in Wal-Mart.  I get disappointed because they are pushing out the half priced Halloween stuff.  I don’t like putting up Christmas trees or garlands.  I don’t like making Christmas cards and sending them to everyone that I never hear from on any other day.  You all know that, I’ve talked about it here before.  I don’t hate Christmas, I just don’t love it.  Except this year.  I don’t know if I would go so far as to say that I’m suddenly a Christmas person, but, I do feel excited for it.  At least more excited then usual.  I’ve already almost finished my Christmas shopping and it’s November (I’m even closer to being done now that it’s December 3rd.)  I was walking around in the store and chose to go into the massive Christmas section and look at all the stuff.  I don’t know who I am anymore.  Which may sound dramatic and it probably is.  It’s just very weird.  I am maintaining my slight angst (former emos never really out grow it) I bought black wrapping paper and am doing a Nightmare Before Christmas themed tree.  I went for a walk around our field to see if there are any good Christmas trees today.  What have I become!?

I’m gonna blame the internet or video games, they seem like a good scapegoat.

Do you have any highs, lows, or uh-ohs for November?  Are you also suddenly becoming a Christmas person?  Have you always been a Christmas person?  I’ll see y’all Monday!  (which is tomorrow.)

much love
