Currently… December 2018

This is a little early for a currently post, but with the month basically over and the start of the new year is what’s next, I figured it was a good time to recap this month. So let’s take a look back at December!

Highlights

For my brain, December really started on the 6th. Because PAX Unplugged took place over the first few days it felt like it happened in November. Plus December 6th is a holiday, St. Nicholas Day, so it’s the kick off of the Christmas season for myself and my family.

We had a holiday card swap in Geek Blogs Unite and it was nice to get holiday cards in the mail to brighten my day!

Thanks to Jessi at Board and Crafts, Jacie at Come To The Nerd Side, ChinLin at Geek GalsBrittany at Rogue Ginger Adventures, and Victor at The Modern Gafa for the cards!

And, of course, there was Christmas. It was a very relaxing day with my parents and brother. Our family tradition is playing board games so we did that and had a nice dinner and enjoyed the day together. I also got some nice, geeky gifts like a color changing Ravenclaw mug, a Mulan ornament handmade by my brother, and a Ravenclaw fleece duvet cover. And some other nice non-geeky gifts like a weighted blanket, clothes, and a scratch-off map of the USA to track all the states I have been to.

What’s Up Next Month

Wait! Before I get to next month, the end of this month I am traveling for a New Year’s trip to visit friends in Connecticut. In fact when this post goes up is the day I leave, so that’s a big highlight for me that partially happens in January.

Now for actually in January, I am excited to stay home if possible. I’ve done a lot of travel in 2018, and I want to put my roots in the soil for a bit. This also means time to blog, time to play games, and do school work without the added stress of traveling.
