This week began the annual three-week-long limbo period between Halloween and Thanksgiving– a time of perpetual disagreement between those who insist that it is too early to sing Christmas carols and the rest of us who pop in our headphones and allow the soothing melodies of “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” to tune out the Scrooges.
The way I see it, Christmas music is the perfect study session motivation because it serves as a reminder that the end of the semester is rapidly approaching; all too soon, I will be reunited with my dog and queen-sized bed for the most wonderful time of the year.
But not soon enough.
I knew that skipping a week of my Snapshot Sundays here and there was inevitable– in the battle between homework and fun, the former usually prevails. Fortunately, this Sunday is exactly one hour longer than any other Sunday, which gave me just enough time to sleep– err, compose this week’s Snapshot Sunday (as if I didn’t love Daylight Savings Time enough already).
I officially survived my second HallOUeen. This year, my friend Caroline and I decided to go as Arthur and D.W., a look that got us more than one approving, “Hey, I know who you are!” reaction from the many passers-by on Court Street. Of course, we had to recreate some iconic moments from the beloved TV show.
