Anti-Christmas

Standard

Apologies, regarding my 30 day writing thing, everything when to shit as finals rolled around.

But I will continue before this year finishes.

Moving on to Christmas though, you know that picture perfect movie-esque family time that everyone tries to emulate. I just had a feeling that wasn’t going to happen in my household this year. How?
Months prior I saw how my parents were acting, throw in my mom and my aunt not talking to each other I knew this was not going to be a very jolly Christmas.

And thus even after my finals were done which they were done pretty early ( I was done 2 days into finals just starting) so I had like 3 weeks of break. Which I did not want to spend at home, in my tiny ass house, with my family. So I stayed with my friends for another week, and honestly even though I felt like I had no purpose being there, (I feel like my home town I’m suppose to chill and the moment I to the city where my school is I’m suppose to study) so the moment I had nothing to study it felt weird. But nonetheless, I stayed, played squash, actually took notes for next semester, binged how I met your mother, had dinner etc. It was great.

Then coming home, just didn’t settle with me. I really didn’t wanna leave.

Walking into my front door, there was the tree in the corner, well decorated too actually, my mom did a great job. I’m the one who always sets up the tree with no help, decorates it, decorates the house, windows, railings etc. and you know just sets the holiday mood.

There was no holiday mood to set this year. Maybe it’s the lack of winter as well, but dear lord, it was draining to be in that home.
Honestly without that tree in the room, there are 5 gifts in the living room and nothing else to show for Christmas spirit.

I also don’t know what to buy anyone so I have yet to do christmas shopping, and there’s 2 days left. Throw in the constant fights, a tiny house which takes you like 30 steps to walk from one side to another, no snow, and one sad tree there is no hope.

I understand this time is for family and stuff, but nothing is really helping this year.

What is your favorite season? What is it and why?

My favorite season of all time has to be autumn. Fall in Canada, to me is amazing. I find it to have the best temperature, where it isn’t too cold nor is it too hot/humid. Should I also mention sweater weather! I have way too many men’s sweater to pass up on autumn. I guess it’s also because I’m 5’1 it’s easy for me to throw on a sweater, leggings, and combat boots and I’m done with my outfit.

It’s also the perfect time for tea, not pumpkin spiced latte. And baked goods even though I don’t have a sweet tooth. Oh and thanksgiving! Getting fat from all the good food, and no one will know because it’s cold out and sweaters are just that amazing.

Then there is all the great scenery, and all the walks one can take. I love looking at the leaves and I walk everywhere. So it’s the best of both worlds. There is also Halloween, which who doesn’t love Halloween. And even if you don’t like sweater weather there’s a whole bunch of other outfits a girl can make without looking slutty/trashy. You can still wear a dress and layer it with a flannel or cardigan, scarf etc. I feel like there a more options dressing for fall then there is for summer or winter.

Overall I feel like the autumn is more of a family-esque time with good food and warm drinks and cute outfits. (:

Do you have any special talents?

To be honest I don’t even know what is considered as a “special” talent. Is it something you can do and no one else can? I’m pretty sure there are many people who can probably do everything I think I can do, 10x better than me.

special talent – often athletic, creative, or artistic aptitude. b : general intelligence or mental power : ability. 5. : a person of talent or a group of persons of talent in a field or activity. — tal·ent·ed \-lən-təd\ adjective.

 

Since it said creative aptitude, I would say my talent is drawing. I’m actually more secure with my drawing abilities than I am with my writing. It’s also probably because I know that there is less creative freedom with writing that I chose drawing. I also have been doing it since I was little. I mean I drew a pretty decent but obvious drawing of my dad in a plane when I was 3-4 years.

I know I had my proportions all wrong, I was drawing girls that have massive heads with itty bitty waists and short stumpy legs. But we all start some where.

I never really had anyone who critically challenged my art, I would show people and they either said it looked nice or it didn’t. No one really tried to tell me to change anything until my first year of highschool. Where I met my (not ex best friend) and she’s not studying to be an illustrator so you clearly know that she knew her shit when she was telling me I could improve. But honestly do thank her for steering me in the right direction. We all have our style and way we create and she helped me find it.

But yea, from then on I learned how to properly sketch/draw people, male and female! I now do traditional (pencil and paper/pencil crayons etc) and digital (tablet & laptop) and water color. I do want to expand my knowledge but it’s hard when that not what you’re studying. Though I do draw little doodles on my exam papers $:

I’ll maybe put something in the future but ya.

Special Talent = Drawing

What was your first car? What is your current vehicle?

Since I am a university student, and I currently live 15 mins away from campus by walk. I walk. I also love to walk, there has been times where I would get to a bus stop to wait for it and I can’t stand, standing around for it that I start to walk instead. BUT. If I had to buy a car, for my first one I would probably buy a Volkswagen Beetle 2003 model with stick shift. My reasoning is just that I’m a small person and it’s a small car, I think that goes hand in hand. But ideally maybe in my 30s I’d go for a nicer car like a Lexus. Maybe.
