Song of the Day: Let It Snow by Frank Sinatra
That's right, snow in October. Well, at least here in NY and on the east coast. It's October but it feels like and looks like December. It's freaking me out but at the same time I like it. It's unusual to have snow this time of year and I think because it's "odd" I like it. They said if this was December this would be a major snow storm. I think it's going to be a bad winter, again. And mother nature you have a sense of humor. It's her Halloween trick to us. First am earthquake, then a hurricane, and now snow in October? What's next?
Have a great day!

Song of the Day: The ARK by Not Advised
"But they're right this is hard, but we're not gonna change....We'll just hold our heads up high for one last chance and we'll try and make it....We've made it this far on our own. So are you with me, tell me are you with me?"
Love this song and band. Check them out, they're definitely worth it.
With this song I feel like I can do anything and accomplish anything, especially when it comes to The Jukebox. I've received great comments about it recently and it's making me really happy. I don't finish many things and I give up pretty easily, but this is one thing I won't give up. So this song is perfect for me. People may put me down and I may not have a ton of likes or followers on the blog and it's not a huge success yet, but if I keep working at it, one day it'll be a huge success (more than it is now) and I know all my hard work will pay off. I'm going to stop here now, I feel like I'm rambling and you get my point.
Anyway, had a pretty good day. Went to see my History of Photography professor to drop my class and then went to Administration to drop it off. Had a test in Anthropology, which took me 20 mins. to do (and it's a 3 hour class) so I got out at 10:30. Came home, relaxed, baked some more cookies, and later I'll be doing some more letter writing. I was supposed to go see my friend tonight and hang out at her house but her grandfather passed away this morning, so she canceled our plans.
And I have off tomorrow and Friday! I'm liking Wednesday's lately.
How was your day?

Song of the Day: Helena Beat by Foster The People
"Yeah yeah and it's okay. I tie my hands up to a chair so I don't fall that way. Yeah yeah and I'm alright. I took a sip of something poison but I'll hold on tight."
I had to take 3 buses to get to school and the same 3 buses to get home. And on one of the buses, is pretty much standing room only; I don't get a seat on that bus very often. So every time I take that bus, I listen to Helena Beat by Foster The People. Some of these drivers drive like the wind and you feel like you're on a rollercoaster. And the chorus is perfect for the bus ride, especially when you stand.
You know, being on the bus (standing at least) is like being at a concert. You're standing next to people, so there's no room to move (barely), and if people need to get off, they're squeezing by you because there's no room. It's just like a concert. If someone wants to get out of the crowd, they squeeze by you. And if you're in a crowd, there's no room to move either.
Anyway, I had one class today, business, took a test in that class, and she said after we were done, we could go (for once she let's us go early). Got out around 2:15 and got home at 3:30; I had to walk 6 blocks to my house (long story) but it was a decent day. No rain, thank God and I think I passed my test. Now I have two days to study for my Anthropology test, which is Wednesday. I'm not looking forward to Wednesday; I can't wait for that day to be over with. After the test I need to go drop my photography class, which isn't a problem. The problem is, in order for you to drop a class, you need yo fill out a form (no problem) and get your professor's "autograph". And my professor doesn't have the best office hours. So if I finish my test early on Wednesday, I need to wait around until 1, just so my prof. can sign the form. Such a hassle but it'll be worth it in the end. I just hope there's no problem, like getting it signed during her office hours and during class (I don't know if that made sense).
Thank God I'm off tomorrow.
So how was your day?

This cookie jar owl is adorable. I love anything that has owls on it or is an owl collectible. The actual animal I'm not crazy about but owl items I love.
These owl fabrics are adorable. If only I knew how to sew, I would make so many things with these fabrics, like pillows. Now I need to learn how to sew.
Autumn and Halloween
I love snail mail. I recently got into it and I have quite a few pen pals that I write to. Plus, this is a really creative way to design your envelopes. I need to try it.
