Monthly Update // November

Hey! I've missed you. :)

I can't. Believe. That December is here. It feels like I just began the academic year. And -- hopefully I'm not alone in feeling this way -- it doesn't even feel like the holiday season to me. (More on that later.)

So, if you're keeping up with the programme, here's how my November went.

The Good, The Bad, The Bookish

Well, if you missed it, I wrote a post about The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. You can read about it here. Long story short: I read it as part of an assignment for my English class, and I was pleasantly surprised.

Last week I also started to read Jennifer Government by Max Barry. I'm only a few pages in, so I haven't really formed an opinion yet -- but I intend to publish a review or maybe a currently reading post later on. It's a second-hand book that my boyfriend's father was going to donate, but he offered it to me first.

I've also been keeping up with my poetry. Today I had a meeting with my spoken word poetry club, and I've written two poems that I'm rather proud of. They're called "Forget Him" and "New Nights." (This month has been a bit of an emotional whirlwind for me.)

Up Close And Personal

I've been working a lot this month! Pro: I've become really good friends with two of my co-workers in particular. (They're the best, trust me.) Con: Another of my co-workers, who was practically my first friend at my workplace, is soon going to leave and work at a new job. (I'll miss her, but her new job is located near my house, so I plan to see her often.)

My Thanksgiving was pretty calm -- I didn't see any of my relatives or anything, but I spent time with my immediate family. And, like I said, the holiday season doesn't feel like it's here, no matter how many times they play Mariah Carey on the car radio. My family and I have set up the Christmas tree, but we haven't decorated yet. I think we might do that later this week.

Also, last weekend I visited a restaurant for the first time. It has the best Mexican food I've ever eaten, so there's that.

Thanks for reading! Let me know in the comments how your autumn is going.
