Our apartment missed the boat on Christmas decorations, which kind of always happens when you're in an apartment away from your parents' house. If you wait to decorate post-Thanksgiving, there are only three weeks left until school is done. So, our apartment was sans-cheer and I was REAL UPSET ABOUT IT. So today, in a fit of boredom/disctraction/procrastination/wanting to be cheerful, I made a zillion paper chains and pulled out every string of lights we had and threw them everywhere. Organized clutter. Arranged chaos. That's how I do it. And since we don't have a tree, I light-painted one. Coo, yeah? Coo.
