All I can say is that getting to Halloween has been a horserace from the first day of October (hence my prolonged absence - I've been lurking more recently, though, meaning I must have the time to start posting again!).
My fiance proposed on the 6th during our backpacking trip (!!!!), and, as expected, 3/4 of the family and all of our frirends have been exfcited and supportive, but 1/4 have been making us miserable ever since. Putting the family drama on top of the worst semester of school I've ever been through (I'm counting everything fro pre-school through grad school, here, so pretty much my whole life), and I am more than happy to wave this month goodbye...with a Reese's Peanut Butter cup in my hand in honor of Halloween.
Bring on Thanksgiving, guys, 'cause November's gotta be better than October. How about you? Highlights from the month? Things you're looking forward to in November (pumpkin pie included)?
