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).

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.

Today was a beautiful, autumn day, that ended with a stormy night.
Before work, we walked to the library to properly enjoy the day and I managed to check out Vanity Fair, The Cask of Amontillado and Memoirs of a Geisha. I have already dove into these books.
I forgot the peacefulness that one can feel at a library, and the lovely titles that you often forget about until you see them sitting on the shelf. I was tempted to check out about ten, but I chose to pace myself this once.
I have started another adventure after having my own today.

The picture on the left was a birthday gift from my friend Chip. She's an awesome artist, and a wonderful coworker.
Yesterday, October 8, I turned 24. That's so weird to say, but it was a great birthday. I even gained some weight because I decided to just pig out the entire week--the fact makes me laugh, even. (I topped off my birthday last night with a big box from Taco Bell, just for kicks.)
One of the cool things about having an October birthday, is that it comes at the beginning of autumn--one of my two favorite seasons (winter being the other). I love autumn for the same reasons many do: beautiful colors, the crunch of leaves under your feet, the cool air, the clothes and the neverending supply of pumpkin pie anything.
October is definitely one of my favorite months, but because I get to see the world around me take on a new shape--my birthday is just a nice kick.
We went to an early birthday dinner at one of my favorite places in town, Tipsy Cow Burger Bar, Monday night. It was a fun night out, and we even managed to get the waitress we had the first time we went, who is always really cool.
A very berry milkshake that was "tipped" with vodka. It was gooood.
This time around, I got the Winemaker burger which had alfalfa sprouts, caramelized onions, and then of course the cheese and the burger itself. It was great, but really messy. I also got sweet potato fries.
On my actual birthday, I had a very relaxing time. I spent most of the day at home, doing nothing, and then I did end up hanging out with some people, but pretty much just sat around enjoying the company. It was exactly what I needed for a day off and a birthday.
