December is a strange month for students. While working folk are revving up for the holidays, attending parties, and shopping for gifts, those of us in school are hibernating in libraries with exam materials. We are loathing the Christmas carols on full blast in every café and shop. I’ve heard classmates (and myself) say, “People are just so . . . happy.” At this time of year, I personally feel more like the Grinch than one of Santa’s little helpers.
