As sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. And thus we turn to the final page of our novelty oversized beefcake calendar and inch closer towards the interminable Australian Summer holiday epoch and naturally our own inevitable fate.
Much like other American traditions which have slowly grown over Australian culture like a fine, yet highly destructive moss (Halloween, anyone?), it is my sincere wish that the December holidays can somehow get be restrained into a more reasonable time period cloistered around the actual public holiday dates rather than the current approach which basically turns December into this Tarantino-esque Death Proof march barrelling towards VERY SERIOUS DEADLINES ALL THE TIME that have no actual meaning but basically just in place because all of Australia basically just stops working until like, April, and you have to say happy new year and ask about people's holidays until at *least* early March and it's all a but much now really.
In case you haven't realised from my previous writings on the matter, I have many feelings about Australia's frankly bizarre approach to public holidays. I get it though. It's hot, we all want to be outside and be doing non-work things, but the whole idea of unstructured time just really bristles against my already very fragile state of constant existential dread, so yeah, what do *you* have planned for the holidays?
If you're anything like me, you'll be scrolling away as usual, but perhaps from a more exotic location. In which case, don't let me stop you from getting a head start, so scroll on and check out the latest and greatest from the JW crew this last week!
