How is everyone doing?
I just wanted to start a thread to ask what everyone's plans were for Christmas this year and what you have thought of this year as a whole?
For me, this year has definitely been a weird one with leaving school and deciding to take a gap year and not continue education with the rest of my friends. I'm glad I have in the end as it has shown me how much little time I did have free due to constantly working on school work.
I had to shield at the start of lockdown and didn't have any contact with anyone outside my family for a couple on months. I finally got off the list in June which was great as I saw friends again. How does the time scale compare to others? Did you get off earlier or later?
For Christmas this year, we are having quiet Christmas with just my close family. We normally meet up with the rest of the family at Christmas and have Christmas dinner together. It can normally get crazy to maybe a quiet Christmas wont be as bad. We are also getting Christmas decorations up this weekend as well. I would love to hear what everyone else is doing this year.
Hope everyone is well,
