A surprisingly informative post

I don't know why, but lately i've taken to googling pictures of beaches. I think some part of me wants to go to the beach =_=

Today is the last day of November, which means that tomorrow the "Holiday Season" officially begins. Prepare to be inundated with commercials telling you to buy many many different things. To counter this, you might want to consider creating a personal mantra to ward of unnecessary purchasing of things. Mine is, "you are broke". 

Seriously though, if you haven't thought about it yet, now is the time to start thinking about what you want to do for holidays. Are you buying people presents? Do you need to send cards out? Can i afford a trip to visit Aunty and Uncle out in the sticks? that sort of thing. Don't be afraid to write out lists, those can really help to organise your thoughts. 

Finally, if you are like me and slightly strapped for cash (for many reasons, un/semi-employment, purchasing too many vidjagames, cocaine addiction) now might be the right time to start reminding people that you love them. Also, try dropping subtle hints that you are broke, so that they aren't disappointed come the 25th. I know, i know, i'm a genius.
