Ok, so I expected the summer months to go by quickly. That’s pretty much expected. But September? It went by just as fast, if not more so. Craziness!
Probably contributing to that fact though? September was a fantastically busy month. I moved, school started, I got the chance to hang out with bloggers that I adore…to say that it’s been a hectic month would be a bit of an understatement.
So, what was I up to? I was…
So, if you don’t know this, I’m pretty zombie-obsessed. I pretty much grew up playing Resident Evil on my Playstation, The Walking Dead is one of my favourite shows on TV right now, and zombies maaay even be a large part of my MA thesis. So it’s no surprise that I picked up The Walking Dead novel when it showed up in the library:
It was an easy read (It took me 4 1/2 – 5 hours to get through it cover to cover) but I really liked it! More true to the comics than the TV show, and it provided a good backstory. I also just started reading this last night:
I actually really like memoir-style books, but even more so when they’re written by comedians. Basically, think any book that Chelsea Handler has done. I think I just really like self-deprecating humour?
I’ve been keeping an eye on new shows out this Fall, and I’ve got two that the pilots impressed me: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Sleepy Hollow. Joss Whedon directs A.o.S., and I basically adore anything that he puts out (Firefly, Buffy, The Avengers…). The guy is pretty brilliant. I also tend to lean towards supernatural-ish shows and movies, so I really enjoyed the first couple episodes of Sleepy Hollow. I love the original story (and the movie with Johnny Depp) but I think it’s been reinvented in a really cool way.
Plus, the Headless Horseman has guns now. As if he wasn’t intimidating enough…
I’ve been listening to a lot of my favourite high school stuff lately. Avenged Sevenfold, System of a Down, Godsmack, Stone Temple Pilots. Although, something that I’m not listening to? Katy Perry’s new song. Am I the only one that doesn’t like Roar at all?

As awesome as September was, I’m happy that it’s October tomorrow. October is easily my favourite month of the year – I can break out the boots and the leather jacket, the leaves are gorgeous, there’s Canadian Thanksgiving, Halloween, and of course, my birthday. I’m all about celebrating the birthday month, so I’ll be sure to make it awesome! It’s on the 24th, just so you know.
Hope your last day is September is wonderful!
