Awesome of the Day #7

My goal is to keep posting awesome things that I experienced on any given day, or just awesome things that exist. How this started and the inspiration behind it is explained in my first Awesome of the Day post.

It’s Christmas Eve, and I feel surprisingly good for spending it alone. Yes, I’m Jewish, so I didn’t grow up with any poignant memories of the holiday, but it’s a big holiday nonetheless, so no one is supposed to be alone, everyone is supposed to be doing something. Any other year prior I would have struggled with my lack of plans- even if I didn’t actually want to do anything, I would make my alone-ness mean something awful about me. I could go into stories about not having a life and how nobody likes me, but I know that’s simply not true. I just notice that as time goes on, I want to keep spending more of it alone. I’m not sure if it’s depression, or just a growing comfort in my solitude, but here I am. So here is what’s awesome.

21. I taught my first lesson today! I had this adorable 5-year-old who has never skied before and we had so much fun! And now I’m officially just like this South Park guy!

22. This Christmas Even meal I made for myself. It’s even Christmas colored! I should have placed my arugula around the plate and distributed the tomatoes to make it look like a wreath. Well too bad it’s gone. Also, I just ate a whole bar of chocolate for dessert. It’s Christmas, bitches!

23. I understand I post a lot of pictures of my cat. Like I think he’s made it into almost every post so far, but look at him! Also, the awesome part…he snores! I didn’t know little guys like that can snore so loud, but they do!
