Small Notes From September

September happened! What the what! You hear these corny quotes about autumn being the year’s last, loveliest smile and I usually puke a little at it. But more like rainbow-puke, not gross-puke (and only a little, I’m actually bit mushy at heart). October is upon us and I am more than ready, as you could find in my last entry. Blogging about the weather, what a time to be alive!

Autumn is usually that season where I, once again, realise how fleeting life is. And how wonderful it is to finally be able to feel the cold again, to snuggle in a coat with deep pockets, to wrap your face in a scarf, to read through a whole chapter while holding a a cup of hot tea while the world slowly goes by – because somehow I finally really allow myself to enjoy books in this season. Also, it was Jessica in my last post’s comment section who reminded me that at least all the fuss brightens things up a bit, that getting into the spirit really helps me to have a more positive outlook on things — and that that is why I try to embrace autumn so much.

I can’t help but say September was a weird one. It wasn’t bad: just weird. One of the things that made it weird? My current employer and colleagues. So I am now, once again, on the hunt for a job. I won’t talk shit. But as I said, what a time to be alive! I have been doing a lot of introspection, and have decided to not doubt myself over these things (too much). Aaaand next to the fact that I am indeed job-hunting, I also decided to start my own business with a friend. But more on that later, when I’m more ready to talk about all the exciting and terrifying things life decisions like that hold. Yay September!
