Life lately has been utterly insane, but a good insane.
Drinking: a pumpkin spice latte (during the fall and winter months you’ll find me with at least one pumpkin flavored beverage a day). I LOVE pumpkin spice lattes. I love warm drinks that taste like a fall, and I don’t know if I should be proud or ashamed that the people at Starbucks now know my order and name (and it’s correct spelling).
Weather: today is a little warmer than the last few days, but I’ve decided to boycott warm weather, and therefore am still wearing a sweater, jeans, and boots. Fall fashion is the easiest, funnest, and most creative. Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend apparently didn’t know about the invention of layering. During fall and winter, its all about the layers.
Reading: To be perfectly honest with you, I never stop reading these days. I’ve read more this semester than I ever have read for school. Although, maybe that’s because in college I actually read all the material. But who knows. For my film and book club I am reading Perks of Being a Wallflower, which if you have not read, you should. And if you dislike it you do not have a soul (kidding, but really, it’s gut-wrenchingly good). Fans of the John Green variety will greatly appreciate the novel and its ability to rip you up and help you discover something beautiful all at once.
Thinking About: I tried to make my schedule for Spring semester on Monday, and all the classes I had originally planned either had unusual professors or conflicted with one another. Insert rant about a panic attack here. So, once I gathered myself into something better than a blubbering mess, I decided to really look at my four year plan, and figure out Plan B. Ironically, Plan B wasn’t bad. However, because my high school didn’t offer a lot of AP classes, I still have some requirements to fill, which prevents me from being able to really try out a lot of different English, History, or Politics classes, which is rather unfortunate. Fingers crossed I get the classes I want because if I don’t, well, I really don’t know what I’ll do for Plan C.
Excited About: HALLOWEEN. I really enjoy Halloween, and this year I love my costume. Since its on a Thursday this year, I think I’m going to dress up, hit Chipotle (they give you food for $3 if you wear a costume, I’m so there), watch Harry Potter with my roommate and friends, and do some homework. It may be a relaxing Halloween, but that’s just what I need.
Missing: My family. I always miss them when I’m away from home, and I miss talking to my sister about anything and everything. I’m also missing free time. I really don’t have much time this semester to just sit, watch some TV while eating bon bons with my roommate, or journal, or paint my nails, or go running. I really want to go running more. It helps me think clearer.
Addicted to: Fall. Everything fall related is my current obsession, as you could probably gauge from the fact that everything on my blog lately is either about pumpkin, spice, leaves changing, or fall fashion. I have a probably everyone, but they say the first step is admitting it.
What’s going on in your life lately? Anything special planned this fall?
