The taste of the chicken flavor is becoming mundane and you just watched the series finale of Prison Break.
This is the most wonderful time of the year for college students who consistently indulge in Ramen Noodles and their roommate’s Netflix.
It’s December. Which means:
School is out soon
Christmas is around the corner
Socks with Rudolph on them are socially acceptable
As the jolly man in the, simply put, soft-large-red-onesie is fast-approaching, instead of paying attention in class, I daydream of the things on my WANT list. This year that includes:
A phone case
Slim style khakis
As you can see these things are not on the typical person’s list,
unless you’re about 35. I mean when I was younger, getting socks would have ticked me off, now it would be like manna from heaven. Seriously, I think the washer eats them,and usually just one out of the pair
A strange phenomenon happens as one transitions from the teenage years to young adulthood. We start to desire actually pretty useful and everyday materials…. Sure the PS4 would be cool, but I NEED BODY WASH.
I know that finals are around the corner and I should probably study instead of sending screenshots of hoped for gifts to my mother. Yet, even in the adolescent search for these gifts I am finding a sense of maturity.
This time of year is one to appreciate the little things, the simple happenings, and the beauty of life. The little things like stocking-stuffers symbolize my mom’s corny sense of humor
which I obviously inherited and emphasizes how important my family is. The simple happenings such as the pictures I get to take with the accessories I hope for or the whiff of Dove for men when I raise my arms in excitement of the season. And the beauty of life is found in the “Reason for the Season.” The greatest gift was the not-so-silent-yet-beautifully-kinda-gross night when Jesus was born in an animal trough amidst a barn type structure.
Overall, I could get nothing on my “Grown-up Christmas List” and still be satisfied and content. While I wouldn’t be upset if an Ipad Mini was underneath the cheesy-Santa-Claus/Rudolph wrapping-paper, I will feel the same if beneath the cheesiness is a 12 pack of calf-high socks.
Enjoy the season for what it brings, just don’t forget to appreciate the little things, the simple happenings, the beauty of life, and the body wash.
Keep on and keep God,
P.S.- I don’t know who Ryan is…..
