"If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?"
“I don’t think I should be advising anyone.”
“Ok, well if you could give one piece of advice to yourself at the age of eighteen, what would it be?”
“Were you able to stay sober?”
“Not terribly well.”
“How would your life have been different if you had?”
“Not sure how different it would have been. But I’d have been a lot more at peace with myself along the way.”
It’s been really cold lately, and it’s the closest I’ll get to a real white Christmas. I guess that’s what I get for living in California.
I’ve been thoroughly enjoying this weather. I love being able to see my own breath and put my hands in my pockets while I walk. I really like drinking warm stuff. I love the Christmas lights in my room, maybe a little too much. Playing Christmas music while driving at night with the heater on always gets to me and makes me feel nostalgic. I just really love cold weather.
However, it’s really sad that some people have actually died from it. Nobody deserves to die from hypothermia, not in this day and age. Someone told me about somebody from my university started fundraising to buy sleeping bags for the homeless. I thought that was amazing.
Anyway, this weather makes me happy. I cannot wait to finish my finals and just relax. Then I get to pack for my trip to New York!
I hope everyone is keeping warm and happy.
Growing up, I never had a Christmas tree.
