In the Month of October

In Writing

I edited a play that was read by a Reader’s Theatre this month! The play is called Passion Bearer, and is about my lady, the last Tsarina of Russia. I got good feedback and hope to do more with this play. Next month will definitely be more of a frenzy with writing, since I’m taking part in NANOWRIMO. And now that I said that, I actually have to go through with it.

In Art and Crafting

Though I didn’t post it, I did make a craft this month, so I’m still good on my one craft a month goal. For Halloween, I made a jewelry set! It’s mostly for work since we can’t dress up for work (check that post here). img_6543

In Videos

I had a couple of hiccups when my damn computer would stop working! But, I still got videos out on time. Notables this month are a continuation of Rusty Lake Roots (to be finished next month, thank God), a cosplay video in which I transform into Mask of the Red Death (yay, puns), and an interview with a robotic clone (fun to editfun to edit). Click on the comments in parenthesis to go to the vids.

In Reading

I read NINE books this month. NINE!!! I think I’ve gone crazy…but here they are:

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

I, Monster by Tom Philbin

Insight Guide Japan

Macbeth by William Shakespeare

The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

My Many Colored Days by Dr. Seuss

Death, etc. by Harold Pinter

Songs for the Teenage Nomad by Kim Culbertson

…so many books…

Next month will be four books.

Personally

It started out great and kind of went downhill, this month. I got to see Fall Out Boy, and thus crossed off another thing on my bucket list. But I also had to cancel travelling plans and Halloween overall has been a poop. It certainly doesn’t help that yesterday turned into such a bad day at work. So bad, I actually had to bust out some angry songs at max volume and scream into a pillow.

Things could be better.

Anyway, I hope my depressing attitude toward Halloween (my favorite holiday, usually, by the way) hasn’t steered you away from it. Go celebrate; trick-or-treat, watch all the movies, go to costume parties. Have fun.

And Happy Halloween from someone who truly wishes you a good time.

So, that was October.

I hope you continue to enjoy my blog. Thanks! ❤

Hugs and Spooks
