November in reviewSaturday, December 01, 2012
a few of my favorite posts from November:
exciting happenings on and offline:
• My mom and I painted my bedroom! One of my new year's goals was to finally decorate my bedroom because three years later it still looked like I just moved in. I still have yet to hang things on the wall but getting rid of that blue paint was definitely a step in the right direction. (Wait, I just realized that that was actually the very end of last month, but I'm seriously still super stoked about it so I'm leaving this!)
• I saw O'Death play at the Grog Shop. I never really went to a lot of concerts or shows growing up and this year alone I've already seen more live music than all my years combined. It's such an awesome feeling to be see the bands you listen to everyday less than 10 feet away from you playing their hearts out. I don't know, it makes me feel so...alive? I can't really think of a better word but all I know is O'Death was AMAZING (I seriously can't even listen to them without getting shivers now) and one of next year's goals will definitely be to see more bands I like live.
• It only snowed once and only a little bit then. That's pretty exciting to get through November like that. The longer Ohio can go without getting lots of snow means the quicker winter will feel.
a tiny (and incomplete!!) list of things I'm thankful for this month: • the beach • living near Cleveland • O'Death • cookies • my family • Crum • bubble baths • the mail man • the cats • thrift stores • having a washer and dryer • my tattoo artist • spotify • my camera • Lloyd & all the other stray cats • food sent home with me by my mom • the fact that vanilla wafers never seem to get stale • books • Mary Roach • ebay • having a great job • the internet • fuzzy blankets • the Grog Shop • instant cameras • the park • the beach • beach glass • netflix • sunny days
Well since it's December 1st and I don't have any Christmas decorations up yet I guess should get on that today. For some reason it just doesn't feel real that it's so close already. Hope you have a great Saturday!
