Super December 2010

Finals are looming ahead so this is going to be a short and sweet post....


At the start of every month, I always feel like rejoicing....but this is particularly true for this December. It feels bittersweet to me; 2010 seems like such a magical year, both for the number itself and for everything that has happened thus far. I can't believe that another year is just about to end...well, perhaps December is the really the end of a new beginning.

I counted down to Happy New Year in January and watched the ball drop, knowing that this year would bring many changes to adjust to and barriers to cross. I've learned a lot since transitioning from high school to college, and I feel like December is my last month, my last chance to accomplish everything that I said I would at the beginning of the year. When the countdown begins and 2011 greets me with its arms wide open, I'd like to be able to look back and say that 2010 was a productive and pivotal year for me before I move on.

Even though the past couple of days haven't exactly been glorious, I have high hopes for next few weeks. A good friend of mine shared this quote with me, which I know will resonate in my mind as I prepare for final exams and anticipate winter break:

"In the midst of winter, I found within me an invincible summer."
--Albert Camus

What do you hope to achieve this December?

I'm one of those grinch-like people who really detest the stress that surrounds december...all those things one meant to do that did not get done and surely won't during a mere month, all those expectations for the holidays that end up being a rush from one family meeting to another...

And yet....I look out of my window and see the snow covered world, and smile. Stress can be beautiful at times.
