golden october

I can't believe it's already October. I know, I know, it's the fifth day already, but still. It seems like it was just summertime, and now it's already the second six weeks of school? *insert a 'where has the time gone' spiel here* Things are as busy as ever here. It's one thing to another with little respite in between. That's not to say I'm not enjoying it, but it's all very fast!

I had a field trip to an art museum today. I like art museums; I like the way it sounds when you walk and how the paintings are reflected on the shiny waxed floor and just the art in general. That was most of the morning. Then, we got back to school in time for last period of the day. We were just contentedly drawing and then this terrible, ear-piercing siren comes on and we all have to go outside. It was a fire drill, but we didn't know that at the time. With the conditions like they are, and so many wildfires around, I wouldn't have been too surprised if it wasn't a drill. But because nothing that dramatic ever happens to me (not that I want my school to burn down!!) everything was fine.

I got home, checked blogs, did confirmation homework, had a snack, started English homework, ate dinner, went to confirmation class, and now I have my World History documents open which, let's face it, is practically the equivalent to working on it. That's my uber-exciting day. But speaking of exciting...

I get to see my cousins on Friday! Two of 'em, anyway. I am super pumped because a) the last time I visited them at their house, I was in second grade, b) I have always wanted to see New England in the fall, c) There is a HIGH temperature of 62 degrees! High! And the low is 48! What does one wear in that sort of weather, anyway? I have no earthly idea. Oh, and d) Because I love my family. And I love traveling.

There'll be more on that later. Right now, I have some homework calling my name! Actually, it is slowly being drowned out by the voices of Modern Family and a popsicle, but you know, I'm working on it. I want to have good grades this time. Sigh.

Hope you're having a happy, golden October so far!


P.S. Some follow up on my last post: My blog isn't my diary, and there will always be things I don't share here. I certainly don't recommend ranting about specific people at your school on your public blog -- things like that will come back to haunt you -- and no one wants to read a blog made up entirely of complaints. But it's not a bad thing to acknowledge the things in your life that are wrong, you know. It's not bad to talk about trivial things, either. Just don't be afraid to be real. Basically, I think, as with most things in life, it's important to maintain a balance. But these are just my thoughts; you're free to post whatever you want. It's your blog, after all.
I just want to thank you for all the nice things you had to say. I enjoyed reading your comments. :)


  1. If that ranting about specific people on your public blog thing is directed at me... DON'T DO IT, PEOPLE. Your English teacher might read about how you thought it was ridiculous that she took nine weeks to grade a project and get super mad.

    Also, Kendallita, YOU'RE MISSING THE HALLOWEEN DANCE :( They announced there was going to be a dance/haunted house thing on the 22nd. I mean, I assume I'd be kinda going with Michael either way, but since it's not formal I wanted to hang out with you guys lots :(

    (Yes, I do update you through your comments because I feel cool being the one person who really knows you in real life.)

  2. Beautiful pictures! They are so lovely.

  3. The photos feel so autumny. Have fun at your cousins & please take photos! It looks so pretty there...

  4. wow, your posts sparkle and shine when you talk about everyday life. i adore your writing style -- it seems so natural and conversational.

    have a great time by your cousins' place!

  5. Ohh! How I envy you! I just, in the excitement of it being fall, bought 2 fuzzy sweaters, and then you know what? Its been 80 degrees all week!
    Love the pictures by the way!

  6. you're my hero for the 'ps' post above.



Hey, you. Be nice.
