day 1957 – seasons gifts

tis the season where christmas gifts and chocolates from students and parents start to flow in. this is the time where students and parents show their appreciation of the hard work we put in throughout the whole year. today’s surprises were a box of godiva chocolate and a starbucks gift card. the chocolates are dangerous because i have a soft spot for certain types of chocolates and will end up eating all of them by myself

christmas trees and decor everywhere, it’s all over my house too. i am reminded christmas day is only twenty two days away. the festive season is the time to spend time with family and friends, even friends that i haven’t spoken to since last christmas. the onslaught of parties and gathering and endless food is about to begin but it’s the perfect opportunity to catch up on what happened in between the three hundred forty days

enjoying a homemade dinner feast on christmas day. the food on the table shows my family has some proven chefs, and that’s not me, cause all i did was toss the salad. festive seasons like this reminds me that i am truly blessed with the people i am surrounded by, for all these people listen and help me through my many troubles and insecurities. but none more so, than those that share the tong genes, for they work tirelessly to guide me through no matter the situation. my life wouldn’t be the same without any one of you out there and tis the season to reflect and be thankful for all that i have. let it be known that each and every one of you have a place in my heart

what’s with these red and greens coming into the office today? that’s when you know christmas holidays is just around the corner because december tends to be a very quick month and christmas rushes upon us. bringing in the poinsettia to fill the space with more red and greens to make it more vibrant and brighten the pale white walls. i am not a fan of these things because it requires cleaning up after dead and dried leaves
