For ‘Internet Writing and Content Development Strategies‘, we were given each a different card to tell a story about something. Mine was Tell about… a present which you have given or received.
How do you feel about Christmas? It’s my favourite holiday. I love to hunt for the perfect presents. Unfortunately, not everyone cares as much as I do. Are you a keeper or an “exchanger”? [short link to full blogpost]
My worst Christmas gift ever? A digital photo frame at the age of 20. To keep or not to keep? What would you do? [short link to full blogpost] #ChristmasNightmare
How do you feel about Christmas? Personally, it’s my favourite time of the year.
I like to plan Christmas eve, the decoration, the food, my outfit but most of all I love the hunt for the perfect presents for my relatives. It can be a stressful task but to me, it’s a real pleasure. I enjoy looking at people’s faces and see the joy when they open my present. Unfortunately, not everyone cares as much as I do about the perfect gift.
When I was 20 years old, my sister got me a digital photo frame.
This is maybe too cliché. To me, you need to be a 40-year-old married business woman with 3 kids and a Golden Retriever to own that kind of object. So, you can look at your happy family whenever your work is bringing you down. I get easily distracted. Imagine having this frame changing every 10 seconds with a new picture on my desk. It would have simply made me fail my last year of College. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating. In the end, I never used it. Maybe in 10 years when I have my Golden Retriever and my 3 kids?
When it comes to presents from your friends and family, are you a keeper or do you run to the store looking for an exchange?
