Okay, so since this blog is mostly about stuff that irritates me, I figured, in light of the incoming holiday season, I would write about a few things I really enjoy.
1. Being with my family. I know it sounds kind of dumb, but your family really is the people who understand you the best. You can be in a bad mood around them, get in fights, even be kind of mean to each other, and at the end of the day, everyone still loves each other. I know that sounds kind of fatalist, but seriously. Having siblings is like having built in friends: you already understand each other without having to try. You can still be childlike and silly with your siblings, even into young adulthood (though this might be because my youngest brother is still 14). Nothing is better than being around your family at Christmastime.
2. My dog. I was always a cat person, but when my parents brought home a fluffy white and brown puppy the summer after my freshman year of college, I feel completely and utterly in love. With a dog. But whenever I come home from school he’s there to greet me, his feather duster tail swishing back and forth, a toy in his mouth to give me as a token of his affection. He’ll cuddle up with you on the couch, his head in your lap. He loves to snuggle and be petted (I’m unsure about the tense usage there), loves to go on walks, loves to play fetch and tug of war. He’s the best dog in the world, unconditionally loving and sweet as can be.
3. Being with my friends. Again, a freaking cliché, but there’s nothing like a great night out with some friends, be it your high school buddies, your summer friends or your college pals, spending time with people that make you laugh is the very best medicine for anything that might be wrong. Much like being with your siblings, if you can be honest and silly with your friends, you can’t do any better than that.
UGH enough being nice. Up next: 10 worst things about the holidays. Mwahaha!
