Every year, like clockwork, the same things ALWAYS happen on or around Christmas. Like...

I wake up way too early

Giphy

Honestly, it is not like I am trying to wake up early. I can't help it if my body wants me to be up when no one else does. This is definitely a tradition of me stomping around waking up the whole family for presents.

Giphy

The tree will fall down

Giphy

We will not be on the same page for the rest of the day

Giphy

You know when everyone had a different idea of what they were doing that day? No one is ever on the same page, whether it's church or grandma's house or even whose car to take. Let the fighting begin.

Career as a Defense Lawyer
