I am trying something new out today. At the end of every month, I am going to talk about my top 10 favorite things that happened that month, items I loved, food I ate, etc. Another window into the life of a poor psychology graduate student who tries to maintain her sanity.
Thanks to Groupon, I got a great deal on unlimited fitness classes at a gym in town. I started going to some yoga classes several times a week, and I am remembering how much I really do love yoga. Of course, I am pretty sore after each class since I haven’t worked out in years (literally…I wish this was a hyperbole but it isn’t), but I am loving it.
2. Halloween Candy
I love, love, love Halloween candy. Tell me why are Reese’s pumpkins so superior to Reese’s peanut butter cups? And it’s about to all go on sale…
If you have hard water problem, you need Lemi-shine to use in your dishwater. Now none of my glasses come out looking “cloudy”. Everything is so clean
4. Short Hair
I got my hair cut this month to one of the shortest lengths I have ever had, and I love it. So much easier to style and looks so much better on me.
5. Thesis data collection is DONE
I have gotten all my data collected for my thesis project! Now just on to analyzing it, writing it up, and presenting it. But in less than a year, I should have my masters.
6. Cooler weather
Thank goodness for cooler weather. No longer do I get flop sweat walking outside. We are right in that transition period where I am not sweating and do not have to wear long underwear yet (since I get freakishly cold). Loving it.
7. Halloween movies
Thank you ABC Family for all your holiday movie marathons. This month I got to watch some new Halloween movies I had never seen but always wanted to like Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice, and The Adams Family.
8. Gillian Flynn novels
I finished reading all of Gillian Flynn’s novels this month, and I have loved every one of them. Sometimes it’s hard to get and keep my interests with books and TV, but I could not put these down.
9. Friends to complain and laugh with
If I did not have other people to commiserate with, I am pretty sure I would lose my mind (even more than I already have).
10. Favorite Recipe this Month:
Traditional Pork Banh Mi: Who doesn’t love a good sandwich?
