It's starting to get real chilly here in Philly. I've had to break out my heavy winter coat, gloves and hat already and its only November 7th. In the city it always seems like we sometimes skip over whole seasons. What with the Christmas ads already filling the TV and windows of shops, its hard to not get caught up in it. But if there's anything I've realized since coming to school, it'a that you have to live and function in the present. If I were to allow myself to get caught up in the winter excitement, then I'd be distracting myself from my commitments here and now.
