September Showers Bring…Fall?

Happy October everyone!! Finally, my favorite month is here! It has rained all most all week here. Ugh. I really don’t mind the rain that much. I do mind walking to work in it though. That’s not so fun. I’m looking outside now though and it is sunny and we finally have Fall temperatures. My October is jam-packed this year; between school and social events, I know it’s going to fly by (which means Halloween will be here any day right??).

Some things to look forward to in October:


1. JMU Homecoming!! Last year was less than thrilling. Evan and I went down to Harrisonburg and sat in the rain watching a miserable football game. We ended up being the last two people sitting in our section. I have high hopes for this year though!


2. Road trip!! No I’m not going to Edmonton, I just thought this cartoon was cute. Mike and I are headed out to The Magnolia State (Mississippi) later this month. Random, no? One of my best friends, Alpa is getting married next summer, hooray!! Her engagement party is out in Mississippi where her fiancé lives. Timeout. I just took the time to open a word document and add in the accent mark (it’s probably called something else, whatever, I never took French) and Firefox is mad, red squiggly mad. Booooo. Ok, time in! We decided to save some money and drive out to Mississippi instead of flying and make an adventure out of it! It’s going to be a pretty quick trip, but we picked out a few places to stop each way (we’re taking different routes coming and going). I don’t want to tell you everywhere we’re going, but I’ll give you a hint about one:


Sorry that picture is so gigantic, but what is going on with his face?? By the way, I just looked at Elvis pictures for a solid half hour. Too fun. I will definitely be blogging about that trip though, so I want to leave some mystery. I can’t wait to see some parts of the country that I’ve never driven through and to celebrate Alpa and Nirav’s engagement!! SO happy for you two!


3. Everything Halloween! I’m trying to find a few Halloween related things to go to. I’m sure a group of us will go to Markoff’s Haunted Forest again. Then there’s always trying to squeeze in a few good scary movies and AYAOTD with the roomie. Plus my good friend, Gretch, is throwing a Halloween party this year which should be tons of fun. Guess I better figure out my costume.


4. Candy corn, pumpkin picking, apple picking, apple cider drinking, wine tasting, baking lots of fall goodies. I could go on and on.

So, you know, if anyone wants to come write a few papers, or read a few books, or study for comps for me…I wouldn’t complain!!

Happy October everyone!!

Next Stop Ocean City

The day has finally arrived! As soon as I get off work, I’m heading home to hurriedly pack and then making my way to Ocean City for the weekend.

Disclaimer: This is not Ocean City.

I honestly can’t remember the last time I was at the beach, so therefore I know it’s been way too long. I wish I could go for more than two days, but I plan on those two days being pretty much like the paradise pictured above. I can’t wait to spend a few days in the sun with my friends away from the stress of school. It’s exactly what I need right now.

Can it be 4:00 yet?
