So it’s that time of the year again where the big fluffy bunny pays us a visit and we all indulge ourselves with over priced chocolates and then gather as a family to eat a big hearty meal. Now my family has never been big on any holidays really, we tend to just use it as an excuse to gather and eat food together. But as the years have gone by and I have grown older, holidays have changed for me, especially after I moved away from home. I have gone from family meals to my dad paying me a visit in my new city to this year where I’m spending it all by myself. Another strange aspect being that my boyfriend doesn’t even celebrate Easter with his family until next weekend seeing as they are orthodox. So it was a little weird when he wished me a happy Easter this morning before leaving for work.
But you know, I don’t mind. Yes, it does make me a little sad not to have the traditional meal with my family or a visit from my dad but I’m not crying over it. It is a little strange though to be able to hear all my neighbors bustling with family activity around me but I am pleased as punch just to sit here with my chocolate eggs and binge watch Netflix. Now don’t get me wrong, this is not a pity post, it is just my ramblings of what it is to be a student away from home on a holiday.
So I would like to wish you all a very happy Easter no matter what you are doing or where you are. And if you are like me feeling slightly left out from all the activities, try and make the best of it on your own. Go for a walk, bake some muffins, go to the corner store and buy loads of chocolate, watch your favorite movie or television series, the list is endless.
