My Christmas Wish

Merry Christmas!  I won't be long but I wanted to wish my readers a very happy holiday!  Since I'm having a hard time coming up with the right words, I'm going to borrow the always eloquent Kermit the Frog's Christmas Wish (you can check it out here).  I know it's Kermit, but I promise that it's beautiful, and worth a read.

I don't know if you believe in Christmas
Or if you have presents underneath a Christmas tree,
But if you believe in love, that will be more than enough
For you to come and celebrate with me.

For I have held the precious gift that love brings,
Even though I never saw a Christmas star
I know there is a light, I have felt it burn inside
And I have seen it shining from afar.

Christmas is the time to come together
A time to put all differences aside
I reach out my hand to the family of man
To share the joy I feel at Christmas time.

For the truth that binds us all together
I would like to say a simple prayer
That at this special time, you will have true peace of mind
And joy to last throughout the coming year.
And if you believe in love
That will be more than enough
For peace to last throughout the coming year.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, filled with joy, love, and happiness.  I'm so thankful for you all.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I am FINALLY done with my finals, which, if I passed all of them means that I am officially half-way done with law school!!!!  The past few months of my life have been exceptionally miserable so hopefully I passed everything and don't need to take anything over the summer or stay an extra semester or repeat this past semester or anything...I suppose only time will tell.  The worst part about exams (besides the fact that they bring out the craziest in me) is that I don't actually get my final grades until AT LEAST the beginning of January, but not finding out until late January is not entirely unheard of.

Anyways, despite all of these things, I have an ENTIRE MONTH to myself right now.  I have a few small-ish school things to do over my break, but aside from those things, I'm entirely free, which makes me entirely happy.  

How do I plan to spend this glorious month.  Well if the past few days are any indication, there will be a lot of sleeping and lounging in my pajamas.  Yesterday I got a massage and finally started my Christmas shopping (yeah you read that right...December 12 and just starting now).  

There is also the current state of my nightstand.  Which I think will keep me pretty occupied for the next month:

Hope you've all had a Happy First Half of December and that you are MUCH further along in your Christmas shopping than me!!!

Home Stretch

I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.  My last final is at 1 this afternoon, so in something like 8 hours from the moment that I'm typing this, I will be free.  For a month.  My supreme and utter exhaustion and stressed-out-ness prevents me from really explaining how excited I am (and how beyond ready I am for it to be 4 pm).  I'm so excited I don't even know what I'm going to do first!  But I think Happy Hour is going to be going down after the test!
