  • Extra Points: Almost the Holidays

    Thanksgiving is already here which means Christmas is almost here and it has also been one of my favorite holidays.
        However, it is amazing how early they put out the Christmas stuff, last year they barely had Halloween stuff down before the Christmas/Holiday stuff was put out. This year, forget it, they had all of the Holiday stuff out before Halloween was even here.
        Next year they will probably have all the Holiday stuff out in September and Halloween and Thanksgiving won’t even really be acknowledged.

  • Extra Points: November

        The past few weeks have been crazy, people were so concerned about making sure everyone got out and voted and when they did and the polls we had been hearing on the news channels for the last three months were wrong people took to the streets.
        Of course, this is not the first time in the last year people have taken to the streets for protests and it definitely isn’t the first time that the protests turned into riots.
