Christmas day and here I am writing a blog post.....How is this different from all other Christmas days? I can mention a few..I am not among kith and kin, I am not spending one moment more than necessary in the kitchen cooking up a storm, I went shopping yesterday and instead of buying Christmas staples like chicken, rice blah blah i bought boxes of chocolate, biscuits and ice cream Yeah!!!
I wont deny that I am feeling twinges of guilt [I could have made it home for Christmas if I had really wanted] and loneliness..but I know I am going to be over that in a couple of hours when i get to my girlfriend Juno's place for Christmas lunch.
So to all my friends and readers out there, who are feeling just a little down, that they are far from home, and not celebrating Xmas the usual way, you are not alone. Chalk it up to experience. Call another friend, Visit a neighbour...You might just find fun/love in an unexpected place.
