Using the force to obtain the Christmas spirit
Happy holidays fellow bloggers! I hope you all enjoy time with loved ones whilst eating lots of yummy Christmas food!
I have to say, despite dressing up all festive for work, listening to the same Christmas playlist on repeat and having to post christmasy instagram shots – I have never felt less festive in my whole life than I do this year. I’m not sure what it is, my friends have said I’ve just grown out of Christmas – BUT DOES THAT EVEN HAPPEN?
I think it must be because my family this year aren’t really into it this year (it’s been going downhill since me and my sister have been growing up and caring less) and maybe because I’ve spent the last two Christmas’ in retail. This year I’ve been planning to just study for my January exams more than anything.
Working days before Christmas isn’t that bad. I know lots of people are stressing out over last minute gifts, but I do prefer being in a fast paced environment so my shift went by pretty quickly. I also did two days at work where we got to do fancy dress – the first day was any fancy dress and the second day was festive fancy dress. Here were my outfits:
I was Snow White and just your generic Santa’s little helper girl thing. I love to dress up – they always make things a lot more fun! Customers mistook my Snow White costume for a variety of different princesses; one being Elsa. Re-watch your Disney movies, kids!
Speaking of gifts, I have always looked at my mom who gets so stressed and worried at this time of year, constantly saying: “Oh! I think I forgot to buy a gift for so and so’s new child!” or “Omg, they got us socks but I bought them AMAZING gifts!!!”
I’ve gotten to that point in my life where I just wonder why at this festive season where all the Christmas songs and messages preach about being happy and grateful – is the season where some people are so bitter and definitely, ungrateful. I’m thanking everyone who gets me socks for Christmas, my feet are nice and toasty than before I got the socks. Thank you.
So, let’s talk about the highlight of this season: Star Wars. Because December 2015 is all about Star Wars to me than actual Christmas. Ha! I watched it in cinemas a week ago and absolutely loved it.
I went straight after my anatomy exam which made me enjoy it a lot more I have to say. I don’t want to say much as I might end up typing out the whole plot (which I’ve seen some articles on Facebook do; maybe that’s why many Star Wars fans stayed away from the internet!) All you guys need to know is: it’s awesome, go watch it if you haven’t already AND if you aren’t caught up with the Star Wars series then go back and watch it – you’re gonna love it, I guarantee.
Half way through the movie, I obviously drank too much coke and needed to go to the toilet. But I absolutely hate missing parts of movies, especially Star Wars. My boyfriend downloaded this app during the movie called, RunPee. It basically tells you parts of the film where you can get up and go to the loo. But as I said before, I didn’t want to miss any of it! So I used the force and waited until the end.
Some guy did go to the toilet during the best bit I must say and I was like,
