christmas in new york

Happy week before Christmas, everyone!

If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, then you know that I recently moved to the Northeast from the dirty South. The past few days, a friend and I went on a NYC Christmas Extravaganza! If you’ve never been in NYC around Christmas, you owe it to yourself to see the city. Everything is decked out, and there is so much to do. I’ve been a bit of a Grinch lately (most people say bitch, but we will Christmas it up), so this was pretty fun for me as a whole.

We went to Bryant Park, which has a whole Christmas Village setup, complete with tree and ice skating. And shops, lots of shops. We went to the Rockefeller Center, of course! And the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall! It was so much fun!

Overall, a very successful couple of days in NYC. I’m heading back tomorrow to check out a cafe that another friend wants to visit as well, so that should be exciting.

I mentioned earlier that I’ve been a bit of a grinch lately… well, let me expand on that. The past few weeks have been a bit trying for me. For one, I’ve gotten a little misanthropic. People have just worn out my last nerve most of the time, and I can’t handle a lot of the stupidity anymore.

I don’t think it’s necessarily that people are MORE stupid than normal, I think I just have a lot less patience. I was on Facebook the other day, which, I deleted the app for this very reason.. but some of the things people say are just extremely closed minded, and it honestly makes me a little sad for the human race. Some of the things people say.. I just can’t fathom why they would want to treat other people the way they do. Live and let live, folks.

Anyway, the combination of seeing other people act the way they do, and the holidays in general being kind of tough for me have resulted in just a general bad mood for a while. I am definitely trying to overcome it, but I keep hitting road blocks or new shit keeps popping up. We are quickly approaching the last Mercury retrograde of 2016 **shudder**, so maybe that’s why my life has been a shit show lately? No idea. I just need a break… or to catch one, at least. Here’s hoping.

Xoxo, Tempest.
