Chit Chat: It’s Christmas Eve

As I was chilling in bed just now, I kept thinking about how this December just hasn’t felt the same compared to previous years.

Usually, I had my decorations up before the first Advent – not this year. It took me until halfway into December. And I just never actually got into the festive mood? Putting up my decorations did help a little bit, but it still wasn’t the same.

I’m not someone who does all these outside activities like Christmas markets or anything, so it isn’t like something was missing from my usual routine around this time (everything was pretty much canceled due to Covid), but it’s still different.

Even now, usually I would get excited about waking up and having dinner with the family later (we celebrate on the 24th) and see my nephews open their presents and feel their excitement. Instead I’m just sitting in bed wondering why I couldn’t get into the festive mood and I don’t really have any answers, but I thought maybe some of you guys could relate. Is a lot of it really down to what an absolute mess 2020 was as a whole? Nothing really felt right this year, I guess.

This probably isn’t the type of blog post I would usually share on here, but since we’re giving this whole blogging thing a new try, I want to share these types of posts and thoughts too. Even if it’s just so I have a record of it somewhere. I still have a bullet journal that I write in from time to time, but I like to decorate my entries in there and sometimes you just don’t want to do any of that and just write down your words somewhere, you know?

I may even share some of the spreads I’ve done with you guys at some point as it looks nothing like it did when I talked about it on the blog a few years ago. Discovering kpop lovers who made fun spreads about bands and their music really changed how I used my bullet journal and I love it. πŸ™‚

Also, a question: Would you guys be interested in hearing about some of the things I’ve loved this year? Yes, there will be something about kpop in that post too, but that’s a given and part of who I am as a person now. xD

How are you guys feeling about the festive season? What did you get up to this past month to make it more fun? And how are you spending the upcoming days? Let me know in the comments down below! ❀

  1. Tbh I’m also struggling to get in the festive mood and I think a lot of my friends are in the same boat too haha. But I think the little things – having some champagne and buying cake – have kind of helped me get more in the mood to celebrate. It’s definitely been a difficult year and I think we all deserve to do something nice for ourselves. Also, would love to see your bullet journal spreads – I haven’t been putting as much effort into mine lately but I think I might start doing that again – adding little doodles and all that haha. Take care & have a good Christmas! πŸ’œ

    1. Thank you so much for reading and commenting, Rachana! And sorry for the kind of late reply – I didn’t realize I was so far behind on replying to comments.

      Yeah, I agree that doing little things to make the situation more special can definitely help a lot! It’s what I’m trying to do now too, to keep up god habits! πŸ™‚

      There will be a link in my post on Wednesday to a YouTube video I shared recently where I flip through two journals of mine – maybe that’ll be something you’re interested in! πŸ™‚

  3. I’m the same as you. I don’t really get out and do Christmassy things, I usually just feel the Christmas spirit, but this year it just didn’t happen. There was no spark. It felt really sad. I’m putting it down to two things, 2020 being a shitty year and getting older.

      1. All of my nephews and nieces are either adults themselves, too far away or both, so I don’t get to experience their excitement. My husband and I are hoping to get a puppy sometime this year, so hopefully that sparks some excitement for 2021 Christmas. I hope you have a good year πŸ™‚
