Sunday, Sunday, Sunday...

Well, guys and gals, I need to apologize.  I never posted my Banned Book list.  Basically, I started it and had trouble stopping.  I'll try to get it up in a bit, but I'm making no promises, and those that I am making, I want everyone to know that my fingers are secretly crossed behind my back.

In other words, don't expect a lot.

That being said, we can move on. 

First of all, this is freaking October already.  I repeat: October.  I don't know why that surprises me.  I mean, this is my favorite season and my favorite month for various reasons (sweaters, cooler weather, leaf/brush changes, drizzle, Halloween, pumpkins, etc.).  I love it.  At the same time, though, it means mid-terms are approaching, the deadline for my huge paper for History is drawing nearer, and snow.

Snow.  The stuff that kids pray for so they can have a snow day, the stuff drivers hate, the stuff that makes Christmas fun.  Oh yeah.  The stuff that for some reason attacks Colorado in mid to early October and that melts in my socks, making me slightly cranky.  It's been really dry this go, so maybe that means the snow is going to hold off. 

Or maybe not.  I don't know.  It's supposed to rain this week, which I'm pretty happy about, but that also means the temps (which have been unseasonably high, I've been told) are going to drop.  Maybe we'll get snow next week.  Maybe it will wait til the week after that.  You never know out here...

Second of all, school.  I am going to change my major yet again.  That's right.  So, it's still going to be an Associates of Arts, but with an emphasis in Creative Writing.  I'm so excited, because it means I can take all the lit and writing classes that I want.  And it's going to help me get a foot in the literary world.  I think I would love nothing more than to be able to be a writer for a living.  I honestly can't see myself in a normal job, whatever that is, and writing is something that comes somewhat naturally to me.  Not to mention that I love to read and write.  We shall see how it goes.

 Semester is like half way done now, too, which is nuts.  I didn't expect it to fly so fast.  I'm really enjoying this semester, which is good.  Last semester kind of sucked from a work load perspective, so this one is making up for it.  I have friends, which is nice, and I'm actually talking to people.  I think it can only go up from here.

Third of all, I still think quiting my job was one of the best things I could've done.  I don't feel the overwhelming stress that I did.  I feel healthier (even though today I feel like I have a cold coming on...), happier, and I'm getting more stuff done.  Even my family can tell the difference.  Kinda miss the income, but hey, I have loan money, so it's ok.

Fourth, and possibly last, of all, I'm in the midst of knitting projects.  That's right, dear cyber readers, I have decided to make everyone Christmas gifts this year.  I can't really talk about it (I don't know who does and doesn't read this), but it's going to be epic. Even if it feels like I'm knitting like crazy.  And all the time. Huh.  Not really a bad thing, though.  It's rather relaxing and fun.  The cool thing about it?  In the midst of presents and projects, I'm making myself a Slytherin scarf from Harry Potter.

Because I am a very big Severus Snape supporter.  But that is a blog for another time.

Unfortunately, this is where today's blog is going to end.  It's Sunday (as the title pointedly says) and I need to do some more homework for this week.

Until we meet again,
