  • That's 100% a mood, Anika. Many of my professors have made everything due at the end of the semester. I literally just finished my last midterm which should have been done weeks ago so now they're rushing and drowning us in all this work that will be due at the end of the semester. I've had three exams due in a week and a half's time plus an 8 page paper that is due Monday and just now got time to work on but have no idea how to start. I cannot wait for break, I need a lifetime vacation.

    However, how is everyone doing? Everyone else having thanksgiving break sometime soon?

Woah i didn't check in here for ages cx How is everyone?

I attempted Nano but so far I wrote a measely 1000 words. I got sick and then life caught me up so yeahhh cx

Man, college life sound hard. I really hope it settles down for all of you soon. I'm so glad that I no longer need to write any papers.

But no, Halo, i don't have any thanksgiving break. We don't give thanks here in my country, apparently cx My next official "break" is Christmas/New Years where I get a week off because the office is closed. But I have today and monday off so I am going to relax a long weekend ^^

Do you have anything planned for thanksgiving? I'm going to take a wild guess and say it involves something with Connor but I can't be too sure cx

    • I don't have Thanksgiving either, but that's because Canadians have theirs in October. We only get a 3-day weekend for it though. Like Deer, next break is Christmas time! I took some vacation because our office never fucking closes other than Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Thankfully I'm off December 21- December 30, work the 31st, then I'm off New year's Day. Then back to reality hnng.

  • Oh no! I find it so interesting seeing what holidays are celebrated in what countries, whether they're related to the country or if they're just implemented for more vacation time. That being said though...I really hope your long weekend is nice and that the Christmas break comes quickly so you have more time off, Deer >^<

    And oof, you're not wrong! This is actually my first year spending Thanksgiving with Connor. I invited him to come stay with my family and I so I'll be driving us down to my grandparents this upcoming Wednesday. I'm super excited for him to meet my family actually.

    Also, Gamora, I hope that Christmas comes quickly for you too! I know how long stretches can be with having little to no days off so!

Ohh it is a first time visit for Connor? That sounds so exciting! I'm sure that all goes well. I hope your thanksgiving will be awesome ^^

And yes I will be enjoying my long weekend. Actually I am in Paris right now to celebrate my 5 year anniversary with my boyfriend... 5 years, man it is like an era cx Where did the time go?

But regarding holidays, we celebrate a lot of Christian holidays here to get days off. Easter, Ascension day and Pentecost. The last two are not that well known and are basically extra days off for all the country. But this is all around April / May so after that the next public holiday is Christmas (and yes, i only realized that once my summer holiday fell away this year bc I work cx)
In the end, it doesn't even matter.

we celebrate Thanksgiving, but it’s just grandma, mom, dad, me and siblings, and we don’t really do anything big.

i like Christmas a lot better, get to see relatives from far away States

    • on the topic of thanksgiving, i know back home we used to celebrate labour-thanksgiving day. it's not really the same thanksgiving that's celebrated in the states but my family and i have honoured it ever since i was a child. i'm spending it with emily this year, and we'll be going out of town for it! they don't celebrate it in england, but she agreed to do it with me.

      i hope everyone's doing alright! i wish you all the best of luck whether you're participating in nano or not! don't forget to check out and sign up for december's event, too! it's much more relaxed to help us ease into the new year! c:
