Generally speaking, I want nothing to do with most holidays.
Traditions are an idiot thing in my humble opinion.
That being said in an effort to take part in family ritualistic celebrations I traveled to a different town to see my sister, and had an amazing trip *cough cough*. It was amazing once I was home. Ha!
It seems most everyone on the Western side of the USA got a White Christmas! Yay! I’m slightly worried about being able to get to work on Tuesday, perhaps I’ll see later today if I can make it to the main road in my rig.
I woke up today in a great mood, ready to spend Christmas MY way and enjoy it. I’ve tried to do this in the past; when I had stressful jobs or other commitments and I would use that as my excuse and say I wasn’t coming to family festivities. I just needed time to my self to recharge so I could be the extrovert that my employer wanted me to be. Ugh.
I’ve learned more about Engagement since I’ve left employers that use it as their buzz word than I ever cared to know. I don’t like engaging, in fact, I would rather leave you alone, and if you’d be so kind and leave me alone too…
I’m going to try to engage with my twitch stream today. It’s something I’ve been neglecting as my life has been getting slightly out of my control and ever so slightly more stressful.
[I’ll really try not to plug my twitch stream here excessively but I’m REALLY trying to get 50 followers. If you have or could make a twitch account and follow me I’d be eternally grateful.]
This and next weekend are the reset buttons for being ready for the New Year.
I respectfully answered people who asked me if I was ready for Christmas. Of course, I was ready. I don’t really celebrate it. What is there to get ready for? The few gifts I give out aren’t relegated to a specific day.
Are you ready for the New Year?
