I know that I’m a couple of days late, but since Christmas lasts for 12 days, I’m not technically late in sending my well wishes am I?
I always find December and January really strange months. It’s got all sorts thrown into it: the festivities during the run-up to Christmas day i.e. the end of the school term, gift-buying and food shopping; followed by the dull-ness during the period after Christmas and before the new year; then again the excitement for new years eve, after which, on new years day, a state of confusion over what year it is, and despair over the demise of yet another year. Then comes spending all of January trying to adapt to the new year and wishing that 2016 hadn’t passed because you start to miss it so much since you’ve made all those wonderful memories then.
So as the new year is coming (tomorrow), I’m trying to mentally brace myself for yet another year of life that will be so full of transitions. A lot of which I’m not ready to handle.
In this coming year, come end of June, I will have ‘lost’ some really amazing friends. No, I’m not saying that we’ll stop being friends, what I mean is that they’re all leaving university thus, leaving me behind while they go off to fend for themselves in the real world of work.
Also, again it’s another year of uncertainty in that maybe or maybe not (touch wood though) that my gran may be taken by Our Father to finally rest in peace. I don’t know, but theres always that possibility right?
So much more to say, but I’ll stop here. Dwelling about things that are yet to happen will probably make my brain explode sooner rather than when the event happens itself.
So there, I’ve attempted to brace myself mentally for 2017 (to a certain degree at least).
Such odd periods these are for us all.
Good luck in 2017 Fash!
