It's definitely fall. I never leave the house without a jacket anymore.
My neighbors have a tree with bright red leaves. Every year, the leaves turn red and look beautiful for a few days, then they all fall off at once. The changing leaves look beautiful, but I hate it when they all drop, leaving behind bare branches. They'll be like that for a good five months, at least. I already can't wait until spring! :-/
Mid-terms are over, finally. I thought they would never leave.
Christmas is nearing, actually Thanksgiving first. (Two weeks from this Thursday, as a co-worker pointed out to me tonight.) In retail, however, we seem to bypass Thanksgiving entirely and move onto Christmas. There's already some Christmas music playing at the store. (Pah-rum-pum-pum-pum!) I adore Christmas music, so I have no problem with that. I have started my Christmas shopping. (I met a women the other day who had FINISHED her Christmas shopping. She was looking for wrapping paper. Oh my.) Mom and I bought some pretty Christmas ribbon, and I'm going to try to make some bows to decorate the house with. It should be fun, although I have a feeling I'm going to get glitter everywhere. *rubs hands together gleefully*
I watched the new Sherlock Holmes on Masterpiece mystery. I liked the first one. I enjoyed the second one. The third one completely sold me on it's pure awesomeness! :-D I can't wait for more. The other characters constantly thinking that Sherlock and John are gay grated on my nerves a bit, but overlooking that, the series was amazing! I've always liked Benedict Cumberbatch, and he and Martin Freeman really seemed to work well together. By the third mystery, their relationship was well established and Holmes and Watson bantered with each other brilliantly. I love the idea of Sherlock Holmes texting.
Lately, I've been working, sleeping, doing homework, going to school, and working some more. I have so many things I WANT to do, but half of the time, I don't have time to do the things that I need to do, let alone anything else. I bet graduating has it's advantages. I can hardly imagine a future where I've finished school.
I leave you with the amazing theme for Sherlock Holmes. I want a soundtrack!
