I'm confused.

It is late fall in Australia. Winter starts next week (or this week? I'm not going to lie, I'm trying not to think beyond tomorrow - it's my yogi approach to paper writing). As the days get shorter and a few leaves fall off the few deciduous trees, I can't help but feel like Christmas is around the corner. Maybe it is because I am stressed out - and that feels like finals at MHC during fall semester. With snow and bundling up before heading into the physics lounge to do last minute problem sets.

Now its barely cold (today I just wore a t-shirt for part of the day) and I am not finishing up problem sets but writing pages and pages. But the feeling is the same. I can't quite wrap my head around it. The end of the fall semester should mean Christmas?

Being upside down and inside out in Australia is a delight but a confuzzlement.


  1. Goodness gracious, great balls of fire!

    Tsk. Tsk. Quite the confuzzlement indeed. I think the only thing more confuzzling is going to the beach during Christmas and Santy Clause in a fur-lined, fire-truck-red thong.

    *washes out eyes

  2. I can't wrap my head around it either. I had to read your post twice to get it. Oh dear. Time to simmer some mulling spices...

  3. I want Christmas! It just makes me giddy!

  4. Burn - Yes indeed. What's up with Santa in shorts? Cr-azy.

    Chris - mmm, some hot apple cider does sound lovely.

    Becky - haha, I know you enjoy the Christmas cheer :)

  5. I'm ready for Christmas again... so long as it's WARM this time around :-)

  6. Winter????!!!!! I'm cheering and jumping around, because summer's coming around in the Netherlands. But I wouldn't mind getting christmas presents now ;)

  7. Lilu - That's even more confusing. When Christmas does roll around it'll be in the middle of summer.

    Donut Girl - Winter isn't too intense here. I didn't even bring a winter jacket!

  8. Yay for opposite hemispheres. Finally another person who is talking about Fall and Winter!
