I feel like finishing finals (redundancy at its finest, gents) is like finally being able to breathe again. I also feel like once I get to Christmas break, tho, if I don't intentionally plan stuff, I'll spend the entire time in sweatpants watching vlogs. Not that there's any shame in that. But here are a few ideas if you'd like to do something a bit more during the holiday. Merry Christmas, blogger tribe!
