So Christmas happened! The actual Christmas bit of Christmas was a bit underwhelming, I must say. It was my first year since moving out of home and over the past few years the amount of presents exchanged has decreased exponentially. Not to mention with the grandparents reaching "that age" and a lot of the youthes coupling off and having to go to other family Christmases, it's just not the big event that it used to be.
HOWEVER, it was my first Christmas since leaving Adelaide and coming back gave me a world of perspective. I really don't feel like I've changed that much since moving to Sydney, but being back, everything seemed totally different and yet exactly the same, it's the weirdest feeling and it made me really appreciate the new life and independance I have set up for me here.2.
So I've just started watching a british comedy called Outnumbered and I have to tell everybody about it!! I'm so disappointed that nobody got me on to it sooner because it is HILARIOUS, one of the best comedies I've seen in ages.
It's just about a standard British family, but what makes it special is that the children are unscripted (they're just given prompts for each scene) and so it gives everything a really real and believable quality that is just unparalleled. The parents are realistic also but the kids take everything to a whole other level (and Jake IS my youth, it's like his character was written specifically for me)3. ( gif memeCollapse )4.
