I’m anxious and it’s stupid. This week is my last week of uni before going home for Christmas and I’m so excited … but also stressed. I’m somehow more stressed about going home for three weeks then I was about literally moving to another country and starting uni in the first place.
It doesn’t make sense but I figured since I’m skipping my lecture today I’d ignore my anxiety by talking about books I’d gift my friends for Christmas if I had a lot of money, which sadly I dont 😦

J – Simon Snow series by Rainbow Rowell
I’ve already bought J’s gift. Come Christmas he will be the proud owner of a Shrek poster that says something along the lines of “this is my swamp now”. It’s part gag gift. We had a Shrek movie marathon before I moved for Uni and he got me a latex horse mask for my birthday so I had to repay the favour. Basically this poster made me laugh and I was like “yes. ordered”.
If I was going to get him a bookish gift though, I’d get him Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I recently finished the series and was sending him snippets of dialogue I found funny, and he seemed to like them.
While I’m not gifting him these books I do have my own copies. He lives right across the street, like he can literally see my parents balcony from his room. He’s also friendly with my mum and has told me he’s only coming to mine to watch Elf so he can see her and my dogs. So instead I’m just going to give him an open invitation to borrow this series when he wants to.
