I’m not much for Christmas. I remember at 12 I looked all around me saw my family in my home and just felt complete. A few years beforehand we lost everything in a fire. I was there standing in my own home. It felt amazing. No toy, electronic or money in an envelope could’ve matched that feeling. So since then I haven’t written up any Christmas lists. But I do love buying gifts. I absolutely love picking out gifts and wrapping them and such. I love it. I hate receiving gifts I’m always so awkward.
Though this year I have received some great gifts. One of my best friends, Ingrid bought me a sketchbook and the tools I need to basically create my portfolio. I teared up because she knows I’m heading to FIT and it was such a thoughtful gift. My little sister bought me a military trench coat and it made me feel…well I don’t know how to describe it because she’s my little sister and it was like whoa really? I loved it. Infinity scarves, pjs and slippers all in black of course lol My parents bought me this little Skelanimals Xmas stocking filled with Chocolate yum. Every year my parents give me some sort of gluttonous gift and say “I know its small but you don’t like getting gifts” and every year I stop them and tell them the same shtick. I am the luckiest person. I have more than most people. My parents are my best friends. They support and love me unconditionally. My best friends are my family and they support and love me unconditionally. Plus this year I gained a new perspective, a new sense of freedom and appreciation for life. What more can a dame ask for?
Did I mention I just finished applying to FIT? :) I do have a Christmas wish. I want to follow my heart with utter confidence. I already started months ago making the moves and taking the actions. With the love and support from my loved ones SHIT IS GOING DOWN ;D
P.S. I must admit I was hoping for Vampire for Christmas…the little bat on my stocking will do…for now ;]
