When I was in 6th grade my mom took me on a special date to see Les Miserables. We got all dressed up, went to a fancy steak house in the arboretum, and then to the musical. I’ve loved Les Mis ever since that moment, even though I’m sure so much of the show was lost on my 6th grade mind, only to gain more and more meaning the older I got and the more I listened to the soundtrack.
I’m feeling super emotional right now over my family, so I am channeling that into wrapping presents and wine and sucking in every last solo special moment of this soundtrack before it blows up all over the world tomorrow.
I am so excited. (I wish I could just post right here the way they created battle music via orchestra for “Upon These Stones.”)
LES MISERABLES IS SO IMPORTANT GUYS, and I hope everyone who hasn’t ever seen it or read it or experienced it in some way goes to see it and falls in love with it and lets their lives be changed by it.
[Unimportant side note: My mom is at work until 11p tonight, so she gave me a few presents to wrap for my brother and sister. I am beginning to think that she strategically picked the most awkwardly shaped presents for me to deal with.]

Last Christmas my mom bought these three reindeer piggy banks for the three of us, and she has been dropping change in them for the entire year, always sending us cute text messages whenever she put in anything more than $5. Last night we got to open them! It was a lot of fun and the grand total turned out to be more than $100. Last Christmas my mom said we could use the money to help buy our presents this year, or we could just keep it for ourselves. Time to go Christmas shopping :)

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
Extremely perfect pre-Christmas celebration with you.
OH MY GOD. I literally can not wait to watch this episode.
That’s all. :)
I want a Hanson coffee mug. Also, Tayfarers are back in stock and I am way too pumped about it.
So maybe I should be doing homework, but I need to celebrate this day.
I love my mom so much.
This will be done today:
And once all that is done, I can ask my roommate/life partner to make me decaf coffee in the Mr. Coffee (SINCE I AM SO DUMB AT IT) and I can drink it with peppermint mocha creamer, watch Christmas cartoons, and go to bed early.
Ready, set, go.
Peppermint Mocha Creamer.. SO ON POINT.
Except it put me in such a Christmas mood that I instantly began playing ‘Snowed In’ (the Hanson Christmas album, for my non-obsessed followers) and now I can find no motivation to go to school because I just want to stay in on this rainy day and watch my box set Christmas cartoons.
My life is so hard.
