It may only be the twenty third of November and the trees may still be full of copper leaves, but that isn't going to stop my thoughts reeling towards the festivities of December. To say that I am excited for Christmas would be an absolute understatement. With one essay still to write and a Christmas cake to bake for my university family, I still have two weeks before I begin my travels back to Swansea (where no doubt my mum will feed me up like a stuffed turkey and wrap me up in scarves and mittens). With plans to make mince pies, drink mulled wine and get the Christmas decorations down from the attic, how on earth am I expected to concentrate on a 3000 word essay on 'Cultural Theory'? I have decided, quite simply, that if I blog about this childish hope for yet another wonderful Christmas, it shall be out of my system and I shall be free to focus entirely on the pretentious wittering of the likes of Foucault and other such theorists! Of course, I don't really resent this essay writing (or the theorists, however pretentious their writing is or not) as much as I am claiming, getting started is just such a huge effort for which I seem to be devoid of motivation. However, back to the festive spirit!
I thought I would share my Christmas list for 2011.
