Wow, it’s been 3 weeks since my last post! Five classes has been hectic and stressful, leaving little time to myself, but I’m doing well in them and I like them a lot. Yet, I’m still ready for a break! We still have 7 or 8 weeks until Thanksgiving break, so there’s a ways to go yet. But it’ll get here fast. Each semester seems to fly by even faster than the previous one. I mean I’m already in my last year of college and the first semester of it is a third of the way done, and it feels like it started yesterday! Crazy how time flies when you’re having fun 😛
So yes, time is flying by and lightning speed…light speed? I don’t know, they’re both fast 🙂 I’m so excited that it’s FINALLY October. October through December is my favorite time of year. Halloween and Christmas are my favorite holidays, and I can’t wait for them to get here.
I was talking with my boyfriend last night about what we’re going to do for Halloween this year. Last year, we went to his mom’s for a Halloween party for his little sister and little brother. Hmm…maybe we’ll go trick ‘r treating with them this time. I’ve never been trick ‘r treating before. I was never allowed to celebrate Halloween, but I never had anything against myself; so this year, I get to celebrate. I’m still trying to decide what I wanna be, in terms of a costume. It’ll be fun! 🙂
There’s also this fun activity of sorts called the October Challenge – or the October Horror Movie Challenge. The goal is to watch as many horror movies (that you’ve never seen before) as possible by Halloween, starting the first day of October. The minimum is 31. No maximum. I’m behind, but I’ll catch up. It’s fun! 🙂 If anyone is up to participating, let me know how it goes! I’ll probably be updating on my progress in the challenge myself 🙂
Also, I’ve been thinking about doing a meditation challenge, or starting a my own meditation practice. With a load of classes and working on top of that, I need a way to de-stress everyday. Admittedly, and ashamedly, I haven’t been keeping up with my yoga. But that changes this week! There’s always time to work it into the day somehow, even if we don’t feel like there is. I’ve felt really tired and sluggish lately, and now I know why. So I will get back on that and hopefully see my stress levels decrease.
Anyway, I just wanted to update y’all and let y’all know why it’s been 3 weeks since my last post. I try not to let that happen, but sometimes my schedule leaves little time for anything else. But I will work on that. Time management 🙂 Talk to y’all later!
