Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be. Shel Silverstein

Paper and Ribbons

Three days until Christmas. I work at a toy store, so that means knowing the ins and outs of exactly what children from the ages of 6 months to 13 years old want, are getting, and what wrapping paper will conceal them. I have wrapped and will continue to wrap endless gifts, acting as an elf of sorts. What I want for Christmas can't be concealed in festive painted papers. As my life prepares for a major shift within the next few months, I hope that the happiness and peace that I possess right now will remain. I am overwhelmed with anxiety, not just to find out which school I will be attending, but rather how changing everything I have known and had my entire life will affect me. Off to wrap presents for children who are in the comfort of their youth..
