Hello!! October is over, and I’ve managed to accomplish things! Which, considering my laziness, is very impressive and I deserve applause. Also cake. Cake would be nice. I did end up having a relaxed(ish) month in terms of school (entirely because of Fall break, it has all my love and appreciation) though I once again haven’t been super active on here. BUT I DID READ KIND OF. Which was always lovely (though it was mainly rereads so I’m not going to talk about that much) and had created the perfect cozy set up complete with hot cocoa!! So, the ultimate cozy vibes as I got lost in books. Perfection. Continuing on, let’s talk about October!
My friends and I had a “Secret Skellington” (my brilliant rip of version of Secret Santa for getting free books sooner, highly recommend this method) and that was incredibly fun!! There was food, and that really makes anything worthwhile. On top of that, my friend who had me got me the most perfect gift (consisting of a purple pouch of lavender, stationary she decorated, a galaxy ballpoint pen that actually goes perfect with a notebook I have, and of course a book?! I’m aware that gift exchanges aren’t technically a competition. but she won, it was perfect)!
When picking up groceries, my family and I somehow received three free bottles of wine? I’m convinced there was an order mix up, and while I can’t drink it, I found the situation hilarious. Based on how the system works, we couldn’t return them so… someone is bound to be unhappy. I still personally vote for free ice cream in the next mix up (cookies and cream is always preferable) and also a cake.
I think I’m just craving cake.
I found out my sister is visiting in November!! But, I have to get my tooth surgery thing done the same week (wisdom teeth plus a weird gum flap thing? I don’t really know it’s a weird situation) so hopefully I’ll be less in pain by the time she arrives, and we can actually have fun together.
The lack of activity also means I haven’t been reading as many posts… but I do remember a couple in particular that I really liked! Naemi @ABookOwlsCorner made The Functions Book Tag!! I really enjoyed this because it combined math and books (perfection, love that) and was really interesting to see subjects that don’t typically mesh combined! I also adored Akshita @AnthologyOfAkshithasThoughts‘s post on a book review of Divergent. I’m not a fan of that series so it was incredibly satisfying to read this review.
This month I’d like to (hopefully) post seven times (so I can beat last month like two. so I win… against myself. wow I’m competitive…), do more writing, and read books that I haven’t before instead of my endless cycle of rereads! I should probably get to Seven Husbands and SoC, and I would really like to because they seem amazing?! And I’ve been saying that for months, I know, but hopefully I’ll actually get to them this month because I feel like they’ll be perfect. New favorites? Probably!
How has everyone’s Octobers been? I attained almost a hundred Twix this Halloween (because my friends gave me many) and yes it was absolutely necessary to get that many because I was in a competition with a friend of mine for who could get more. And I had to win. And I did! Other than that, is The Nightmare Before Christmas more of a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie? I need an answer to this. Let’s chat in the comments!
