Vacation Time & My Plans!

Last week has been rather busy and hence the lack of posts. Though, to be fair, I have posted quite a bit in the last two weeks and will hopefully continue to do so over the next 2.5 weeks because vacation time!

Though my vacation is going to be more like this…


… because Canada!

I will be reading a lot and getting my apartment clean and set up for RLB and family to visit! 😀 we still haven’t hung up the paintings or even our clothes! LOL

But today, I am going to go watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with C and I am incredibly excited! Will leave a review when I get back.

3 Things I want to do for myself in the next 2.5 weeks: 
1. I want to get myself in the habit of eating healthy – so I will be keeping a food diary for the next few weeks
2. Make a list of all the books I have by author
3. Read 10 books

What are your plans for the holidays? 🙂

Santa is real

I was 9 when I first found out that Santa isn’t real and my parents weren’t the ones who broke the news to me, it was my classmates. I was devastated!

Why am I talking about it after all these years? Well, firstly because Christmas is just around the corner and secondly because I have been noticing that a lot of my students below the ages of 10 do not believe in Santa Claus. Can you believe it? How can someone kill the joy of Christmas for children?

But the funny thing is that Santa is real. Yes he is!

Our parents are the one’s who bring us gifts on Christmas, so they are our very own Santa!

Christmas is about hope, giving, love and sharing and in fact anyone who is kind and giving is a Santa. Santa lives in all of us and he will continue to as long as there is love and people continue to care about each other. This holiday season, donate to a charity of your choice, give to a food drive or go drop off some gifts at an orphanage or a children’s home so that everyone can experience Christmas.

To children all over the world: Give  Santa a.k.a your parent a hug because they have worked very very hard for you. Merry Christmas Everyone!
