Happy Halloween! I hope everybody had a good time! We dressed up for work and even got to leave a little early. (*’▽’*)♪I watched some scary shows on TV and ate candy and then Riho and I went to a haunted house. This year was witch themed so I was curious lol. There were lots of different rooms and themes and we definitely screamed hahahaha it was a lot of fun! Afterwards we got tea and dumplings. (*・ω・)/:*:・:*:・
The weather was beyond perfect for Halloween. It got dark quickly and stayed overcast with light rain. It was super windy and blew off the leaves from the trees as the temperature dropped. First night of the year I had to turn on the heat! I expect I’ll be packing up all the summer clothes and stuff today.
I love this time of year, though. The cold air is refreshing and coming in from the cold.is one of the best feelings in the world, i think. Even though I have a sweatshirt it’s colder than I was expecting today. I’m starting the day with breakfast at a nearby Jewish diner i hadn’t tried yet…they gave me latkes and everything was delicious.

Things have been mostly the same. I’ve been working hard, especially this week, day and night for the most part. But i’m challenging myself and learning new things, so it’ll be worth it. :)

Today is día de los muertos…anyone celebrating I hope it’s a happy and peaceful day for you.

The past few weeks have still been busy. I feel like I work all day come home and work some more. My free time feels very planned with times, places, and activities, though it’s still been fun. Since last time I visited my dad for his birthday, went to Oakland Cemetery, Korean bbq, and another wedding.

Because I feel like my time is at a premium I’ve been working hard on some personal projects when I have a few minutes to myself. (Though I’ve also been watching Princess Jellyfish and finished Barakamon, Mushi-shi first season and a few others.)

The cemetery is about 150 years old and they have a variety of historical tours and events.

I’ve been blogging exclusively on my phone lately so whenever I have a few minutes I can write, but I still can’t upload photos on my phone so my posts always get delayed.

Last weekend the weather was wonderful and I even felt cold when we ate outside. Since, it’s gotten hot and muggy again and it’s been kind of miserable. I’m really ready for cooler weather now. I don’t like the heat much and it’s been hanging on way too long.

Personally, I’ve been doing well at staying focused and not getting overwhelmed. If I can keep going like this for awhile things should ease up soon (ironically the holidays are a pretty slow time at work). ( ´ ▽ ` )

Oh yes, I made pumpkin oatmeal and would have taken a picture but it really doesn’t look that appetizing. It’s ok, but if I make it again I think I’ll tweak the recipe.
