Slice of Life: Holly Jolly Christmas!

Hello readers! Welcome to another “Slice of Life post”. I haven’t done one of these posts in a while, so I feel it’s long overdue. I hope your holiday season has been going smoothly for you so far! Have you got the most of your Christmas shopping done yet? I’m pretty much through with mine this year. As you’ve seen from my November book haul, I’ve done a little shopping for myself already, lol.

And in other recent news…..I GRADUATED!!!!! Allow me to express my excitement in gifs…

 

Yay! My commencement ceremony was held on this past Saturday and I didn’t trip on the stage! Shout out to all the winter grads out there! Congratulations. I really miss the friends I’ve made and the interesting classes I took. I’m also missing my students from student teaching practicum as well. I now have a Bachelor’s degree in English and a minor in Japanese, as well as a TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) certificate so I’m excited to explore career paths. My dream job is to become and author or working in a publishing company. As for Japanese, I’d like to do something with translating and with TESL I’d like to teach overseas.

As for Christmas stuff, it’s the season for decorating!

The Christmas tree is up and decorated finally (it took quite a while).

And we put up lights and cool Christmas gel clings on the window.

Despite all the decoration among the house, no literary holiday style decorations were put. I’d would love to try to create a book Christmas wreath, but I didn’t have the time this year. We got a brand new tree and lots of new ornaments since some of the older ones had paint chips and weren’t as shiny as they were in their prime.

Some of my new/favorite ornaments include:

“Dalek” from Doctor Who! I wanted to buy a Tardis ornament as well!

“A good book is better when shared”. Truer words were never spoken. I absolutely love this bookish ornament.

The doll and spotted elephant from “Rudolph and the Island of Misfit Toys”. One of my favorite holiday animated classics!

Who can resist a cute s’more snowman?

As we’ve finished the decorating part of the holidays, I’ll be spending my time here blogging about “A Month of Favorites” and sharing bookish events from 2014, shopping, spending time with family and friends, eating lots of (aka “too much” food, catching up on reading/Netflix, and enjoying some good old holiday fun!

I hope you all are enjoying the season so far! What are your plans for the holiday? Doing anything special? And if you’ve done some decorating, what is your favorite ornament? Comment below!

Till next time~
