“Nothing feels right this season. No snow..no spirit. A lot of tragedy.”
A friend of mine posted that quote on her Tumblr the other day and I just read it while combing through my reeder, it made me think.
I myself haven’t been feeling all me this season. Work has been physically and emotionally exhausting. Life has been throwing curveballs at me every moment it gets. And there has been a weird vibe floating around the house.
It is now the 19th of December and there isn’t a speck of snow on the ground (usually around this time we would have at least a foot). Not only does that upset me because we most likely won’t have snow for Christmas, but we also won’t have snow for my birthday (which also happens to be…today).
I wish there was more spirt out there. While working for a retailer in a mall, you would think I would find tons of people full of spirt while they are shopping for their presents. NOT. I have begun calling days un-normal if I don’t get hung up on, or called a rude name at least once. I mean come-on people, we all can’t be grinches.
Whenever someone passes from my high school it always hits home. The other day, a 19 year old who graduated in 2011 from my high school, passed away in a car accident in CT. I did know the student personally, but I did recognize the face from around the campus. It is always sad when someone passes, but this time of the year is just the saddest.
I hope everyone is having a great holiday season.
I apologize for any jumping around in this post, like I said, my head isn’t straight right now and I can’t get all my thoughts in one place. Blogging is the only thing that actually helps.
