Christmas Bells Are Ringing On TV; At SAKS.

With all respect, sir, are you therefore sugguesting there is no further room for critical thought or interpretation?
-Melchior Gabor, Spring Awakening
I'm excited for Christmas. We've started to decorate our house, we have TONS of lights on the outside, and then our tree is GORGEOUS! It is so lush and beautiful, with a bunch of ornaments and all that jazz on it. My mother is going to be making a lot of honeycake, because my whole family loves to eat it. With powdered sugar. I have a huge wishlist of things that I want, and even if I don't get all of it(which I won't) it's okay because I'll be spending time with my friends and family, and that's what really matters. The holdiay isn't just about getting gifts, except that is what everyone seems to be the most excited about. My chamber choir at school is singing a bunch of holiday(mostly Christmas though) songs at a hospital, and I'm so ecstatic. I think I'm going to wear Christmas colours and wear my reindeer clips in my hair and maybe I'll even get all of my friends to do it. I think I'm the one who is the most excited out of all of them though. I want to go caroling. Can you tell that I'm super excited? At school I drew a huge sign and hung it up. It's a countdown until Christmas. I'm so excited, I just can't wait. December has come so quickly, but now the days until Christmas are dragging on and on and on..
Okay, well the truth is, I'm jewish and I celebrate Chanukah(or Hannukah, Hanukkah, Chanukkah, ect). Everyone around me pretty much all celebrates Christmas, and I don't. I don't really mind, except that my school's chamber choir is singing a bunch of christmas songs, and now I have to commit them to memory. I haven't even heard some of them before. I don't do anything special on Christmas, and I also can't join in on my friends' excitement for the holiday coming up. It's normally okay with me, it's just that this year everybody is talking about it non-stop(and also talking about twilight, agh). Do you like eggnog? Eggnog is really gross, in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate Christmas or anything of the sort. It just takes over the month of December, and it's all people talk about. And drama. But let's not get into that.
The song of the day is Christmas Bells from Rent.
It is SUCH a great song. No lie.
My life though, is pretty lovely. Although my phone got ran over by a car, although there's been some drama that I wasn't involved in, but distantly affected by, although I have an orthodontist appointment later today, although these next few weeks will be very stressful, although I don't have enough money to participate in Secret Santas and buy good gifts for people(yet), my life is sparkley. I'm trying to glitterify my life as much as I can, because you can never have too much glitter. When I get home, I'm having hot chocolate. It is almost the weekend, and I just wish I could see some people sooner.

This is going to sound totally off topic, but today in gym class we were doing archery, and we needed to have a team name for a bingo-archery-type game, and our team name was 'Lawnmowerz 4 Lyfe" and then each player had a team nickname. I was blowtorch. There was also: Muffin Mix, Bingo Bat, Brittlecake, ChafICKA and Marshmallow Madness. We won 2 times out of three. Go team! Haha, it was a good time.

I have recently been taking a lot of quizzes in my spare time, and these are a couple of answers I thought I'd share with y'all:

You are tough and tomboy-ish, or just a guy. You like to get down and dirty, without the fear of getting hurt. You are a bit arrogant. You are slightly depressed, sad, and insecure but you like to cover it up by acting the tough guy. Or girl.

You are a blueberry muffin! The softest muffin from the oven! You shall be eaten first because everyone chooses you over any other muffin.Scream as much as you want,but you shall be the first eaten muffin of all of the muffin batch!

I still want a cupcake.
