Is it really the end of the year?

I can’t believe it’s already December. Being immersed in NaNoWriMo makes me forget all about getting ready for Christmas, our family trip in less than two weeks, Nutcracker, and a million end of the year parties. Every year, on December 1st, I feel like I’m waking up from a dream (or a nightmare) and realize I have to do a million things when all I want to do is sleep. Who can really function with this cold? It was only 14 degrees this morning (-10 in Celsius!).

Come December, I always feel like the year has blown by. The years seem to go faster as I get older too. So, I decided to make a list of 2011 favorite things.

Music has the number one spot.  My favorite song, by far, is Latinoamerica, by Calle 13.

Even if you don’t understand the lyrics in Spanish, I think the spirit of the song and the beautiful images of the video don’t need any translation. It’s an Anthem for America, from the North Pole to Antarctica.
