Eventful Advent Calendar



The Month of Celebrating and Year 9 have come to a close, and so unfortunately has the Advent Calendar, although I'm sure we can all say this year has been one of the greatest Advent Calendars ever! From the adorable and humorous animations to the well thought out selection of awesome seasonally themed prizes, and the annual Advent Calendar trick, this year's Advent Calendar is the one to remember.

Post-Christmas Blues



It happens every year: at the end of January, your owner comes up to you and says grimly, "We need to talk." You go into the living room and sit down next to the Christmas tree, lovingly caressing the now wilting branches along with your brothers and sisters, who are doing the same thing.

It's six days after Christmas, she thought to herself bitterly. It shouldn't be swimming weather in December! The Lupe rose to her feet and pulled her beach bag...

The aroma of chocolate chip pancakes and hot cocoa hit my face like a speeding gormball. Mom rarely served us chocolate pancakes and hot cocoa for breakfast.
