I am depressed.
I can see you shocked. Your mouths still stretched after voicing the big WHAT!!??&&, your eyes rolled up so high in their sockets, that the pupils are no longer exposed.
It's Christmas week for God's sake I can hear you cry. Christmas and depressed, the ultimate paradox.
But yes my friends, I am feeling blue precisely because it is Christmas.
There's this Christmas spirit all around. We had a bay decoration contest and cake distribution this last Friday. We had carols and nativity quizes. Everybody is planning their weekend. The christians are all agog with excitement over the feasts and midnight mass. The others are just drinking their fill of the holiday spirit.
But I, I feel so Scrooge-like. I have got no one to celebrate with. My parents are in another state and right now my bosses are in no mood to let me go on a vacation.
My friends at work are all going away to be with their families.
So it's going to be a long lonely Christmas for me. Eating a cake bought at the nearest bakery, watching Christmas specials on T.V. .
Anyway, a Merry Christmas to all you lucky ones who get to celebrate the holidays with your families. I miss mine so much...
