My First Post and Christmas Time!

So... Where to begin?

This is my very first post, and I have to admit that it does feel slightly more restless than I had originally planned for. But here I am, Saturday morning, with a cup of tea and my pink laptop, determined to actually post this!

My mother tongue is Danish and until recently I felt rather secure speaking English, too. I've had my fair line of A's in English, but just a few days ago, my teacher gave me a shiny dead-heavy D. A D! I wonder what could've happened.

I'm considering it a wake-up call. Arrogance is a simple curse. And now that it is out in the open I'm going to forget it. It's my first D, and I'm determined it'll be the last, too!

I'm not going to surprise anyone when I say that it is Christmas time! In fact, it has been since October, when the first stores started selling Christmas candles and ornaments.

Just a tad too early? I know I think so at least!

I'm usually quite the winter's helper, I just love Christmas! But this year? I'm not in the mood. It's been a rough month school-wise. I have a rather important, rather large, essay coming up. Maybe it's not school that's the problem. Maybe it's the fact that my dearly beloved sister is moving from home some time after Christmas - It could be several things. But it's a shame really. So now I picked up the Christmas cup, and yes, the tea I'm drinking is Christmas tea. You wouldn't think I'm not in a christmasy mood!

However, I feel that the Christmas spirit is, ever so slowly, sneaking up on me. Until it's completely over me, which will make me jump around the house in my red dress singing Christmas tunes, I'll go eat my homemade confections.

Mmm, pistachio.

  1. Great post, Anna! I never would have guessed that English wasn't your first language. You write it so well!

    I hope you're able to find the Christmas spirit soon :)
