you know, I wanted to sit down and write a post, but guys... I'm too tired.
working 5am opening shifts at a coffeeshop and simultaneously teaching a night class way across town? yeah, 0/10 would not recommend to a friend.
the leaves here turned suddenly and got very pretty, but it's only when you try to take a picture that you realize how much negative space there is in kansas. by which I mean there's so much sky...and air that is not filled by trees. the colors grab the attention in real life, but photos always seem a little sad.
if you like film photography at all, here's a random recommendation: I like this youtube channel.
last night was, of course, halloween. I used my college graduation gown and my ravenclaw scarf and a wand carved by my brother out of a stick long ago to transform into a hogwarts student and distribute candy to neighborhood kids. one little guy waited for me to fork over the goods before running away yelling, "gryffindor's better!"
I wrote a short story over the month of october, successfully finishing it on the 30th within my personally-set deadline. it's getting a lot of laughs and requests for a recording? I guess the little voices I developed to read it aloud are pretty entertaining. if I figure out how to record it, I'll share it here sometime...
I'm off to take a quick catnap, I think. hope you all are getting plenty of rest and that your weather isn't almost 80 degrees like it is here! ha... peace out, kids.
