I’m here now for my second post-OU Christmas season, and I must say, I really miss the 6 weeks off we used to get. Somehow, Christmas has snuck up on me. I am just not prepared. I miss the days of wandering the malls endlessly over break, surveying all the potential gifts, loading up on cute outfits for myself. But now, this working-40-hours-a-week thing isn’t so great for “me time at the mall” that I’d gotten so used to over those 4 years. Those 6 weeks off were always the best. I propose we bring them back – I think I will need to incorporate them into my life. Because actually working throughout the month of December just isn’t cutting it for me.
