I have technically been an "adult" for a few years now, but this Christmas I feel like I have finally grown up. This may (or may not) be due to the fact that I have to work Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas and I never have before. Either way, something has changed. This year I find myself working the hardest I have ever worked. I find myself always busy and often stressed, but at the same time I am very satisfied. I feel like I am actually accomplishing something and making something out of my life. This is not to say that all the years I put into school weren't an accomplishment. They definitely were, but I really didn't have anything to show for myself after graduation but diplomas. Now I feel like I am getting all that work and life experiences that I have wanted and am out in the world making some sort of a difference.

Some things never do change though. It's the holiday season yet again. Everywhere I go are the sights, sounds and smells of the holidays. I think about you the most often this time of year, its strange. We never shared a Christmas together, yet this is the time that you are in my thoughts the most. I hope that you are well. I'm sure you are......

Last year I lived by myself and I felt a little lonely at this time, but this year I have roommates and am super excited to share and get ready for the holidays with them. One of my roomies is already talking about getting a Christmas tree and putting it up this weekend, isn't it a little to early for that? I don't know, I guess we'll find out...
