Hey There November

Hey everyone,

First off, can I just say thank you? Thank you for all your sweet words on my last blog post. Seriously, you all made my day. You lovely people never fail to make me feel welcome, loved and supported. I can't express how thankful I am for you all. Just know I may have cried a little bit and wanted to give you all ginormous hugs. 

So if you haven't been paying attention, it's October 31st, aka the last day of October, aka Halloween, aka one day left till Christmas music and all things holiday cheer. This year has flown by and I can't believe there are only two months left! I've had an amazing October, though, and I'm looking forward to see what the next couple of months have in store. Nervous, yes, but looking forward to it all the same. 

Currently// Missing reading constantly and having time to write book reviews, continuing to figure out my college classes and writing a ton, being excited about changes in my life and scared about others, enjoying the company of good friends, walking in the rain but kind of enjoying it, and soaking up the beautiful colors and feelings of Autumn.

Reading// The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger because I've been in such a slumpy mood and extremely busy. Also, City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare because Ms, Clare never fails to drain the reading slump from me.

Enjoying// Christine's post, Catching Up. Olivia's post, Jules. Cally's posts, He Comes and Clear This Head. Julia's posts, idk and The Smile.  Elissa's post, I Want a Band-Aid.

Watching// Gilmore Girls. So I still haven't finished the last season of Gilmore Girls. I know, I know, how could that be?? So my mom kind of spoiled the ending for me a while back (thanks mom) and I've really been dreading it because I don't want that to happen!! But the revival is coming up soon, so I've been trying to finish. It's still amazing and the coziest fall show ever. Also, I've been watching Monica Church's vlogs recently. I'm not sure what it is, but I just really love her video style, plus she lives in Washington. REPRESENT *virtual high five*

Loving// Writing whatever comes to mind without filtering, making use of my desk and trying to use good posture, evening yoga, watching the leaves turn colors, passing a group of super cute ducks every morning on my way to class, worshiping my Lord with friends, late night talks with my mom, and morning cuddles with my pup.

Disliking// Anxiety at the weirdest times, catching up on math, getting sick twice in three weeks, looking for work and never finding anything, awkward small talk, the fact that Netflix took The Nightmare Before Christmas off, and people making me feel like I'm ten.

Blogging// Travel Diary: Oregon Coast - Part 2, where I talk about the last part of our Oregon trip. Hey There October, where I talk about what happened in September and my feelings about October. this is not the end, where I write because sometimes speaking doesn't say enough. Follow Me Around: The Pumpkin Patch, where I share some photos of a cute kid and a fun day. My Fall Playlist, where I share some of my favorite songs for the season. And i'm ok, where I get a little personal.

Upcoming// Possibly doing a play on NaNoWriMo, but instead of writing a novel, writing a piece of poetry every day and giving you all weekly updates. My oldest brother's 21st birthday on November 6th and my other older brother leaving for the Air Force on November 15th. OH MY GOSH WHERE HAS TIME GONE?

How was your October? What new things are coming your way this November? Let's chat!

  4. YESSSSS I wasn't the only one counting down the days until all things Christmas ensue. Admittedly I already broke out the Christmas albums before halloween so.... haha.

    Sounds like a PACKED month for you, girl. Best of luck to your brother... my boyfriend is in the air force too and currently deployed in the Middle East. Counting down those days until he gets back in the spring.
