The spookiest month of the year has come to a close, and with it has come the beginning of one of my favorite months: NOVEMBER! Enough about the present, though– today I’ll be sharing a bit about what I was up to in October.
- The Imagined Underworld by James Alex Garza
- Becoming Campesinos by Christopher Boyer
- Old English and its Closest Relatives by Orrin W. Robinson
- Crónica del desamor by Rosa Montero
Unfortunately I’ve been so busy lately that all of the books I read in October were assigned reading for my classes. My favorite book of the month was Old English and its Closest Relatives by Orrin W. Robinson because it was really interesting to see how early Germanic languages evolved and intertwined. If you’re interested in linguistics or language in general, I highly recommend it!
If I had to sum up October in one word I would say: BUSY. From mountains of homework to longer tap dancing rehearsals and meetings for Student Senate to making decisions about courses and schedules for next semester, lately I’ve felt as though I’ve barely had enough time to eat, work, and sleep. Despite all of this chaos, I still managed to have a pretty great month! I visited my family back home over our brief October break, watched a bunch of scary movies, and had an incredibly fun Halloween weekend with my friends. (I dressed up as a hippie, if you’re wondering.) Though I’ve been feeling really stressed out lately, fun times with friends and family definitely makes it all worth it.
Also, I finally managed to watch Halloweentown, Nightmare on Elm Street, and The Shining. A lot of screaming (and laughing!) ensued, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching them!
