- New Job! I got a new job in youth services (!), at another library. This is very exciting to me since it's basically the next step in my professional development, but I'm still getting used to the hours. It's an exhausting change that has left my head spinning, a little bit! Needless to say, this has been at the forefront of my mind lately, and crafting and blogging have sadly had to take a backseat for the moment.
- Fall Activity Extravaganza! When not busy being exhausted, I have been throwing myself at autumn with everything I have. Apple picking, hiking, pumpkin-themed foods... this year I'm determined to do it all!
Apples! That I picked myself! Off of a tree! And they were all, without exception, somehow amazing.
- Time Spent With Friends is Time Well Spent. Enough said, but somehow it always seems like too much time passes between spending time with good friends.
In a way, this time of year leaves me feeling down -- summer's over, and that means that winter is on the way. But fall... fall is just the best. It's my favorite season, my favorite time of year, with my favorite activities and tastes and holidays. At the same time, it's only a matter of time before fall is over again, and winter comes. That's always in the back of my mind, and it seems to add a sense of melancholy to everything. It's important to just enjoy everything while I can!
