Christmas Is Almost Here

Christmas is almost here, and now that we have a our first Christmas tree, it's that much closer. I can't wait.

We even have our first joke ornament on the tree. It was meant to be.

"It's 32-degrees" is the first thing I remember hearing that morning, but my mind was so foggy I could have sworn I had imagined it when I woke up hours later. I should have listened.

The wind beat against my chest and my ears turned red as I made my way through town, dreaming of a hot latte and a good book. This will be my first, true winter here.

I remember being here for a rosy-colored visit, and I remember buying a beanie to keep my head warm. I remember holding hands when we didn't have gloves, and I remember a hot meal at the end of the night with the heater turned on. But I didn't live in it. I don't remember it the way that other residents do.

But that's okay, because I am making my own memories in the cold, complete with my favorite Starbucks drink (Caramel Apple Spice Latte), knit sweaters and Christmas decorations that may be up too early, but almost not early enough for me.

Imagine Dragons is one of my favorite bands, and the finals of the Worlds Championship for League of Legends is tonight.

Here's their song for it.
I'm super pumped right now (and full of sugar).

降雨 - Rainfall

Today I had every intention of getting up, going to the library to return a book, then find a nice cafe to drink and read. Well, that was the plan, anyway. When I woke up, it was pouring rain. Good thing I love autumn rain, as well.

So I spent the day listening to the rain, reading, snuggling in warm pj's, drinking cinnamon apple tea and cleaning some of the apartment.

It's no walk to the library or cafe, but it was still just as relaxing as I wanted it to be.
