slytherin problems & jon foreman up a tree

Hey,'s November. Can you believe it? 

I can't. Not only is it barely cold where I live, but I only just had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season a few days ago, and I've yet to wear any of my *seasonal sweaters.* Alas, fall, why do you taunt me so?

Anyway, I've missed you all so much. I'm struggling to stay as closely knit in the blogging community as I feel I used to be, and this is largely because of the following excuses:
Work (gotta go to work, yo)

School (can't miss school, brah)

School Work (ain't no joke)

Writing my novel (AKA not writing my novel 
and watching YouTube videos and sleeping instead)*
*Literally. I told myself I would Be a Good Writer and Actually Participate in NaNoWriMo this year, but I ended up not writing anything on Nov. 1. Oh, the promises I've broken. *screams internally while giggling slightly and foaming at the mouth*

Meanwhile, cool things have been happening, such as that time I met a girl dressed in a Ravenclaw costume in the elevator at Halloween who promptly asked my Hogwarts House and when I said Slytherin recoiled instantly as if I had just threatened to bite her. 

I don't get it, why don't people think I'm friendly?? I'M SO INVITING


Distracting Side Note: According to this Hogwarts House hybrid quiz, I am half Ravenclaw and half Slytherin. So really, she shouldn't have been so scared.

As you can tell, I've been having Way Too Much Fun with my Harry Potter class. Reading through the sixth book now, can't wait to finish!!

Other glories of October-November include collecting more vinyl, eating pumpkin oatmeal, buying some books at a library book sale and seeing Switchfoot and Relient K live. They were great, especially Switchfoot. The energy was insane; I mean, these dudes aren't in their 20's anymore, but they still brought it.

Also, Jon Foreman crowd surfed to a tree at the venue and then climbed it and continued the set.

Oh, Jon.

+ How has your fall been so far? Any notable experiences? Anything I can pray for you about?

+ BONUS JONAS! If you want a sad fall song to cry yourself to sleep to, click here. If you prefer a sunnier tune, click here


  1. I'M A RAVENCLAW/SLYTHERIN, TOO! Solidarity. *fist bumps*

    1. YOU ARE? WOO! :D <3 I'm seriously starting to become super loyal to my Hogwarts House(s). It's a bit strange. *adorns room with Slytherin-Ravenclaw colors* *hangs flags* *builds shrine to Snape*

  2. Haha fun post! :) Did you take the official harry potter sorting house quiz on pottermore? J.K Rowling created that herself. It's pretty legit. You can also find out your patronus on there too! I found I'm in Gryffindor which I'm 100% okay with because Hermione Granger is my hero and she's a Gryffindor. lol But you know what? I wouldn't mind being in the other houses too because they all have good things about them. Plus Snape was a cool guy and he was in Syltherin. So there's that.

    Also, fun fact, that first song (Souvenirs), I used it for my Senior solo dance. 'Tis a bittersweet song but I thought it was fitting for my Senior solo.

    1. I did! I took it twice (by sneakily making multiple accounts), a few years apart, and I got Slytherin both times, LOL. She is seriously such the coolest author! She has built this entire world, nay, empire....and that just baffles me. Hermione is seriously the bomb! :) One of the best. And I took the patronus quiz, too! I got a Tortoiseshell Cat which is not entirely inaccurate, haha. What did you get?

      I LOVE SNAPE (this deserves a line all its own)

      Oh, it is the most perfect song for that! It IS so bittersweet. There are certain songs, like that one, and "Never Grow Up" by Taylor Swift, that I can't listen to unless I am emotionally prepared haha

  3. I missed you too, so much!
    This fall sad song is perfect for me <3

    1. You are the best! It's a great song. Very emotional!

  4. Heeeeey, Slytherclaw bros. :) And I MAINTAIN THE FACT THAT I WANT TO TAKE A HARRY POTTER CLASS. It sounds stupendous.

    Your costume is MARVELOUS. You look as though you could kill someone, but still go to the book club meeting on Wednesday. #goals

    1. You too? *massive high five* You should, if ever you have the chance. You will not regret it. Getting class credit for reading all these books has been such a joy this semester :D

      Thank you thank you! :) Haha, you rock. That's exactly what I was going for, yo. The Dementor costume didn't end up working out but I still wanted something dark/approachable lol

  5. It sounds like you've been having a fun fall! The weather has finally cooled down here in the south. XD The most exciting things is I got to go to Disney World for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party. It was so fun!

    1. It's been a pretty stellar fall so far, can't complain! :) That is so wonderful! Cool weather is literally what I live for; there is nothing like a chill fall breeze that makes me feel inspired. Yay for you! Disney World during any holiday is like the bomb. Glad you had fun! :D

  6. Okay, yes yes yes.
    How on earth is it November?!?!? What even????
    And I am slightly (okay, very) jelous that you got to see Switchfoot. AHHH!!! That sounds amazing.
    I will now stop rambling.
    So thanks for the update! I've missed your posts!!

    1. I honestly don't understand how we are halfway through November. It baffles me....time is just moving too quickly. Aw, if you ever get a chance to see Switchfoot, DO IT. They bring such an intensity and authenticity to their concerts that blew me away. Thanks for your kind words! It means a lot. :)


Go with grace.
