There’s a reason why I named the blog what I did… I am always on the run, and more often than not, I mean this figuratively, not literally.
I am bummed I haven’t been making the time or effort to blog more recently. Of course, I’m still reading my regular blogs in the skinny slots of time I do have, but honestly, my regular blog reading hasn’t been inspiring me as it normally does. Instead, it’s making me a bit envious. You see… it’s already December 4th – 21 days ‘til Christmas! – and I feel a bit like the Grinch. The holiday season is my most favorite time of year and I’m letting it slip away from me. I’ve been burying my nose in my enormous end-of-the-semester to-do list, that I haven’t stopped to celebrate the season.
My holiday spirit has consisted of drinking Candy Cane Lane tea and listening to the Swingin’ Christmas station on Pandora [while cranking out a dietary case study] – pathetic with a capital P.
I did make Chocolate Peppermint Bark Cookies yesterday, but I didn’t even enjoy being in the kitchen baking, because it was just another rushed thing I had to do on my to-do list [to bring to the Nutrition & Food Science Assoc. dinner].
So… even though I want to do my best to kick out Semester 7 with a strong punch, I do not want to miss 3/4 of this special time of the year in doing so. From now on, I want to make it a point to do something holiday related every day – whether that be turning on the Christmas tunes, sipping a holiday beverage, shopping for stocking stuffers, sending my annual holiday cards – yikes, I almost forgot about these – or for heaven’s sake, cooking/eating something festive and blogging about it!
Hope you’ve been enjoying the magic of this special month :)
Alright, it’s back to
the books December…
