Hibernate (v): spend the winter in a dormant state

Ah, Christmas break.

I’ve been done with school for more than a week now and have sufficiently gotten to experience what Christmas break is all about. It’s a time of hibernation, rejuvenation, relaxation. A time to do all those things you wanted to do during the semester, but just didn’t have time to do. And most importantly, a time to do absolutely nothing, and not feel guilty about it.

So how have I spent my first week of Christmas break?

Veronica Mars.

I’m a season and a half in on one of my new favorite shows, and I don’t feel one ounce of guilt about spending so much time in front of the ol’ tele. Why? Because I deserve it.

Yes, I’ve been lazy and worn my sweats and the couch out more than I ought, but I’ve also gotten quite a lot done as well:

Christmas shopping, coffee dates, multiple Christmas parties with different groups of people, baking, a going away party, extreme cleaning of my entire house and my car, babysitting, puppysitting, breakfast dates, reading, job hunting

And who said t.v. was such a waste of time? I’ve learned a lot from my VM marathon, including- how far an accent and a plan can get you, the importance of confidence and getting tough, how to secretly bug anyone, things aren’t always what they seem, the inconsequence of what people say about you behind your back, money doesn’t buy happiness

and finally, my new life goal of becoming a private investigator.

    Not to be one of those girls who says, “I LOVE everything about this post,” but…..I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS POST. Except for the part that I am not on the couch watching Veronica Mars with you… 🙂

    I would total be down for being P I ‘s, but if that’s the case, we will need to change our last name to something crazy. Something just as catchy as Mars
