"It's ok that you're not paying attention in class right now. Planning what you're going to bake throughout the whole month of December is more important anyway. If need be, just offer your kind professors some baked goods. They'll surely understand."."Stop writing this and get your ass to the gym. You're going to be consuming copious amounts of food over the next month and you cannot spare to skip a day. Trust me ."
In regards to the first bullet, I usually have a rule where I cannot listen to Christmas music anytime before Thanksgiving. But hey, am I really to blame if my Itunes " accidentally" started playing 'A Very She & Him Christmas' on repeat while I baked up this beauty of a tart? My hands were full of sticky, buttery Pate Brisee and they were not coming close to my keyboard. I mean there was really nothing I could do except make myself listen to it. ;)
