Month in Review: October 2013

(Cheating my no-coffee rule for an almond milk raspberry mocha.)

October went by incredibly fast.  So fast that, apart from work and classwork, I really didn't do too much.

I started my 'new' job back at the bookstore, and learned how to make all the cafe drinks.  Everything smells like coffee and baked goods all the time, and it's wonderful. I've been working a lot too, which I love, although I had a sixteen hour workday a few weeks ago that left me a bit tired...

My brother had his first set of big shows with the company he's in, and they were amazing.  Super proud of him.

I got together with Lauren and Will for coffee one weekend, which was lovely since I haven't seen them in months.  We spent Halloween giving out candy at Masha's house, and it was wonderful.

I went to the fair with my brother, Lauren, and Will one Saturday.  The fair itself was disappointing, but the company was wonderful, and I really enjoyed seeing the Star Trek exhibit.  Which, let's be honest, is why I wanted to go to the fair in the first place. (Edit: This totally happened in November... I had my weekends mixed up.)

Now that I'm in the swing of my new routine, and have a bit of structure back, I'm hoping to set aside some time to blog more often.  Fingers crossed for that!

Hope you all had lovely Octobers!


  1. Any job where the main smells are coffee and baked goods sounds like a glorious deal to me. Man, I really wish I could get a summer job at a bookstore. That would be so great.

  2. Agreed; October went by too quickly that I didn't accomplish half of what I would've wanted. Let's hope November can be more productive!

  3. I work in a cafe in a bookstore too. It is literally perfect. I'm surrounded by pastries and coffee and books and creative people all day. Makes it pretty easy to go to work :)
