but not really. I ate a good amount of my candy, but only about 5% of it. The rest was given away to kids! For the first time in my life, I don’t live in a city where parents aren’t afraid to let their kids go to strangers houses to trick or treat. I passed out candy for the first time and  it was kinda crazy. We got about 300-400 kids! I actually ran out of candy halfway through and had to run to the store to get more. It was insane! The bf and I were eating french fries as we passed out candy and some little kid BEGGED us for a french fry. I didn’t mind giving him one, but I asked his dad first  and he wasn’t having it. The id threw a fit. It was amusing to say the least.

It’s November. I am now officially counting down the days until Harry Potter-Deathly Hallows pt 1! I’m thinking about re-reading the book before I see it. I’m going with a couple of friends and we’re dressing up. I’m surprising everyone with Gryffindor scarves!

I’m making them in the most basic stitch. If I try to get technical with it, I will never finish before opening night!

hello november

Halloween has come and gone. Even though the Dutch don’t celebrate it, Me, Dev, and our friends surely did! Dev and I threw a “party” at our apartment. It was basically pre-partying in costumes before going out. I officially got wasted and spent some of the night dancing on a table at the club. It was a lot of fun! Mission accomplished! A great way to say goodbye to October

And Helllloooooo November!

This month is a great month for concerts! Tomorrow I am going to see Volcano! at paradiso. I MAY be seeing CSS on Friday. I say may because I don’t know if I want to spend 22 euro on them. I absolutely love them, but that’s a bit pricey. Seeing Okkervil River and Hot Chip next week with Rob, Andrew Bird at the end of the month, woo! excited! I’m also planning on going to Paris this month. oh and I’m writing a novel.

No. Really. I am! I’m participating in NANOWRIMO. Nanowrimo is a creative writing project in which participants attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. This is my third year participating. Sadly, I did not actually complete the novel the last two years, but THIS YEAR is the year baby! I’m going to try my darndest to finish it. As of now I only have 0 words! Yea, yea, I know. I should get started. I am! I have a few pages of ideas and I’m going to get started after I finish yapping here.

November is a really exciting month for me! The only thing I have to complain about is the weather. ughh! It’s starting to get to be that shitty Dutch weather I hated so much last year. You know the one. With rain and wind blowing against you no matter which way you turn! I HATE it! But that shitty weather signifies the return of yummy Dutch treats. Mmmmmm! Be prepared to hear all about my favorite Dutch treats within the next few weeks!


I’m back in the netherlands. woot

The flight here was ok. I slept the entire time thanks to my lovely sleeping aids. Hopefully that will help against my jetlag. So far, so good. I’ve been awake since 8 am and no sign of tiredness yet. Memphis was nice…yup. That’s me, the mississippi river, and the bridge that connects TN to Arkansas.

TOMORROW is halloween! My roomie and I are having a sort of get together/party thing. I’m kind of nervous because we haven’t done anything to prepare for it. Oh well, beer+our friends+music+costumes=fun times anyway.

and if it starts to suck we can always just go out 🙂
