Happy (belated) new year! One of the truly wonderful things about being a student is winter vacation. November seems dire with all the deadlines and exams looming above, but the bliss of a few weeks off with little to do is a great reward. If you are someone who knows me, it is no secret that I am not a fan of winter. I envy those people who enjoy the cold weather and bundling up because don't think I'll ever understand it. I do love seeing the city covered in snow, but it basically ends there.
In an attempt to quell the self pity I feel during the year's coldest months, I've tried to keep myself occupied with things it allows me the time to do: scheming future trips with Sandi, seeing movies, drinking hot toddies, making new necklaces for the shop, frequenting my favourite breakfast and coffee places, and watching Homeland (full disclosure: I watched both seasons in 4 days... if you've watched it I'm sure you get it).
If you are a winter lover/crazy person, please feel free to share your tips on how to enjoy these dark, moody months with me.
