Before the Axis Changes

Coffee consumed - check, house cleanish - check, blog aesthetic updated - check. Well now there is nothing to stop me from studying right? I can hear my mother - and I know what she would be saying right now - it's amazing how after all these years she still can make me feel guilty for looking lustfully at my bed... Well in honor of exam season - the best way to start the holidays and the reason I have not for the last 8 years looked at Christmas with anything but disdain - I have posted one of my favorite songs... As to Christmas and my disdain it is because the holiday continues the stress post exams with a vengeance: shopping, baking, decorating and working - as I am my mother's Christmas elf - doing everything - and while I do love shopping for others, wrapping and all that - together, under duress it is not the least bit enjoyable. One enjoyable aspect of this Christmas - it's my first vegan one - and I get to bypass all the caloric traps - just remember each pound represents 3500 calories consumed in excess to your needs, and it takes burning 3500 calories to get rid of it... that's a lot of work... so maybe you should drop that cookie and pass on the egg nog - just a helpful word from your thighs, chin or butt...

Oh no no no - Christmas music? In my attempt to find study music I went to Air1 - okay - I realize that Christmas is in full swing down south but ah - so no more of that station...



And to add a little humor...
