Peanuts mean comic strip characters to me. The TV specials also come to mind, but their original debut was without movement, complimented by speech bubbles.
After December 2014 I was trapped by a terrible first world problem. My day to day calendar had run out of pages, and I specifically wanted another Peanuts calendar.
Something about waking up to a new comic strip, featuring Charlie Brown, made my first semester in a dorm so much sweeter.
As a junior (in fall 2014) I had become very nostalgic, and longed for the stories of the most lovable blockhead in the world. The calendar allowed my bland dorm room desk to liven up a little as well. Money also came into play. I was also able to snag the calendar from my local book store for around $4, because I bought it in February (2014) instead of January (2014).
I was a recent community college graduate that February (2014) ready to attend a four year state school that coming August of 2014. I knew a thing or two about a good bargain, and that making full price purchases is no way to live.
When December 2014 ended I was happy to be done with finals, but I was also between jobs, putting a damper on my academic accomplishments.
In January (2015) I secured employment at my colleges computer lab, easing my financial worries, but when I strolled into my dorm room and placed a discount Dilbert calendar on my desk, I was only half satisfied. I had also enjoyed Dilbert’s story growing up, but I had a dream to fulfill. I had to get rid of this frown, caused by a lack of Charlie Brown.
February 2015 placed a biweekly paycheck into my bank account, and a discount Peanuts wall calendar into my hand.
My college’s bookstore had a 75% off calendar sale, and the first thing I saw was a Peanuts wall calendar. My Charlie Brown addiction finally met its true fix. Dilbert was getting some company.
My new calendar found a place on the side of my desk. There’s a side panel because of the shelf above the table area. The room was finally complete, and my calendar struggle was over.
