I think the two themes of September were SCHOOL and FALL. I don’t know why, but I’ve been one of those people who gets really into fall. . . which might not be that remarkable, but you have to understand up until this year that fall was my LEAST favorite season. I think one thing that’s helped a lot is that since I’m living at home, I’m in a slightly different climate. Even though I’m still in Texas, for the past seven years I was living smack-dab in central Texas, and now that I’m living with family I’m sort of in the more coastal plain regions. Some people might not notice a difference, but for me that means I have NOT been suffering from the fall allergies that plagued me for the last seven years, ever since I went to college. Without that, I’m actually enjoying the season, and definitely the (slightly) cooler weather(I mean, it’s still in the 80s here, so not THAT cool, but it’s better than August).
And then, of course, there’s been schoolwork. I feel like I’ve really started to find my rhythm again as far as being a student is concerned, and I’m really enjoying one of my classes. The other isn’t as enjoyable, but it’s not bad, so on the whole school is going pretty well.
I was going to start my annual Gilmore Girls re-watch, but my season 1, disc 1 DVD isn’t working. Sadness. And apparently ABC family isn’t showing reruns anymore, which started this week. Watching Gilmore Girls was my mid-day break! I’ve actually been watching way too many hours of the Investigation Discovery channel, which shows re-runs of things like 20/20 and all those crime investigation shows, because my family’s started watching that channel a lot. Fun fact: growing up, my mom watched true crime shows a lot & I would watch with her when I was VERY little. The first time I watched a few my parents thought I would have nightmares, but I was fine, and I was obsessed with the forensic investigations that they bought me science kits and thought I would grow up and want to be a forensic scientist. If it wasn’t for my struggles in the math portions of science, there’s a good possibility I *would* have decided to major in some sort of science field in college.

I think I talked about it in one of my weekly wrap-ups, but on my way to my in-person school days, I got to visit one of my friends, which was lovely. We also made plans for November, so I’m definitely looking forward to that in a few months!
