It's hard to believe Christmas has been and gone! I have had such an amazing time here so far, it's flying by. The week leading up to Christmas was filled with lots of celebrating, shopping, and of course eating! As I mentioned before, everyone here has been so generous and inclusive, people have gone out of their way to make me feel welcome. Including multiple invitations to go home with people I hardly know for Christmas, which is unbelievably kind. In the end I decided to have a quiet day to myself, to relax and reflect. I went for a nice walk by the water, opened my gifts, cooked a great dinner, and talked on the phone to many of my friends and family. It was truly a wonderful day!

Everyone's concern for me being alone was touching though, and people were soon texting on Boxing Day (everyone here is obsessed with texting!) to get together. So all my plans to get some things done while my roommates were away didn't happen! Instead, I have been going out for lunches, movies, walks along the beach, shopping, hosting and attending dinner parties, all with this wonderful group of people I am beginning to call friends. It's so much fun to meet a group of people my age who are great about making plans and getting out of the house!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, full of much love and laughter!
