Christmas Spirit

It’s exactly 1 month until Christmas. Last week, I wouldn’t believe it. Well, for two reasons: First reason, last week was NOT exactly 1 month ’till Christmas. That’s a good reason, huh? And two… I just wasn’t in the spirit. It was before Thanksgiving. But a couple days after Thanksgiving, I’m pumped up for Christmas. Right now, I really am in the spirit.

I was outside in pouring rain with my chickens, putting them inside their coop making sure that they were fed for the night before I closed the coop-to-run door. I knew that I would struggle to go back outside and close their door in the pouring rain. I was shivering. My hands and feet were going numb, and before I went back to the house, I had to bring in the eggs. Or egg, I should say. It’s winter and my chickens aren’t laying as much, but we have to give them some lights in their coop because today I only got 7 EGGS from my 12 chickens.

I tried not to drop the egg as I was walking to the house. My hands were quite numb. When I came inside, I rinsed my hands and they felt like play-dough. I got dressed and I saw it: The Christmas tree in the living room, next to the new couch. After that, I’ve truly been in Christmas spirit.

Anyway, I have an artificial Christmas tree. What about you? Take the poll below.


What I’m Doing On Thanksgiving

I hope that you’re having a very joyful and blessed Thanksgiving. I am. I’m currently with my great grandparents, grandmother, mother, and my brother. My dad is in the basement making the turkey, which should be ready in 2 hours. And who knows where my sister is. I’m listening to Imagine Dragons – Bullet It a Gun. It’s embarrassing — I think it’s a good song.

I just went outside with my great-grandfather and brother to see the chickens. My nose is red from the cold. (SONG CHANGE: ID: Digital)

I am itching to play guitar. But that’s not going to happen because I have to be with my fam. But I am REALLY itching to jam out. Good day for it.

GOOD NEWS! My band is playing on December 8th. I don’t even know what songs we’re playing and how to play them! But I’m getting better at guitar. (SONG CHANGE: ID: Zero)

I’m so excited to have pie. More than the turkey right now, but that’ll change. And I love potatoes, too. Any type of potatoes. Except for McDonald’s fries.

Imagine Dragons ORIGINS!

I’m surprised. Touring from 2015-2020(if they’re touring for their new album, then it would be 2019 and 2020.) They wrote their 2nd album Smoke + Mirrors and went on tour in 2015 and 2016, and wrote their 3rd album Evolve while on tour for Smoke + Mirrors. Then they toured for Evolve in 2017 and 2018 (my experience at my local concert for Evolve) and now, if they tour for their newest album Origins, that will add two more years of touring. But as of now, they haven’t released any tour dates. They are playing a few more shows in November and December, though. But there’s no chance I’m flying to Mexico or Vegas to see them.

So it’s out today! Whoo hoo! I don’t like it as much as Evolve, but that’s to be expected if I’ve only heard some songs once. But I’m loving Zero, Natural, and Machine! You should check them out! I also think that the names of the songs are getting cheezier, like “Love.” I mean, who would name their song “Love?!” *Imagine Dragons did, Christina!*

You should check out Imagine Dragons’ new album Origins, out 11/9/18. I don’t like it too much yet, but I’m trying to!

What’s your favorite band? Song? Do you like Imagine Dragons? Tell me!
