It’s October everyone!
So what are we doing in October?
Despite my love of old halloween themed geocities blinkies, I actually don’t like halloween. I am a very, very easily scared person. If my mom enters the kitchen while I’m cooking I scream because just that small surprise terrifies me. When I was 8 years old I had an undying hatred of Michael Jackson because the thriller music video scared me so bad. When we go to Disney World I can’t enter the dinosaur area of Animal Kingdom because the dinosaur animatronics scare me to death. In other worlds I’m too weak for scary things.
I don’t know anybody who’s having a halloween party and I’m too old to fruitfully trick or treat, so I don’t have anywhere to wear it but…
I wanna make a halloween costume!
I’ve never made my own halloween costume, I didn’t always trick or treat or anything for halloween and when I did they would be either made by my mom or store bought. I’ve made a few (terrible) cosplays in my day (thank god there are no photos of the Equius one). So I think with enough effort I could make a costume that’s not skin-crawlingly embarassing at this point in my life.
What else do I wanna do in October?
- get 70 more monthly views on my blog than September
- try to take at least one photo every day
- save as much money as i can from my paychecks
- do at least 6 lessons in Mandarin and Japanese respectively
- finish 3 more chapters of my korean textbook
- do my acne scar routine on my chest acne scars
- write at least 2 articles for other publications
- send in my college application
- write in my diary at least 20 times
- eat at my favorite restaurant once *fingers crossed*
- make a youtube video where I speak 0 english
- go over my spanish (a customer came into the store who only spoke spanish and I felt so bad because I didn’t know how to tell her that the fitting rooms were full)
- take a few OOTD pictures
- do better at eating than in September
October also means we’re 10 months into 2018!
It feels like it was just March last week.
I’m hoping that in 2019 things will be even better. I have goals already set for 2019, but I’ll tell them to you around New Years. I’ll need some of you guy’s help achieving them so I hope you’ll pay attention to those.
October also means it’s the perfect time to use my favorite lotion!
My favorite body butter is called Carved For Attention and it’s an old limited edition perfectly posh lotion. It smells like pumpkin pie to me. I wish perfectly posh would bring it back.
So since the post is called October 1st, I’ll tell you what’s going on today, October 1st.
