october snow storm

Pioneering.

After 4 and a half days of no power in Cheshire, it’s finally back. Try going that long with no Facebook, Tumblr or anything of that nature. And on top of that..no heat or lights in the house. I tried being a pioneer for a few days and failed because it is literally impossible to sleep in the freezing cold. My 10 huge fish froze to death and our gecko nearly died as well. All of are food melted or went bad, and we sat around 24/7 because the schools around here had no power, and were running off a generator for the people who came there for shelter. Besides all that, I think I gained a good 10 pounds from eating out for dinner every night and then sitting around. Thank god it is finally back ;)

***ALSO

Nearly 100% of this town was powerless on Halloween so that was basically ruined. So the town then decided to have everyone who wanted to trick or treat go to the towns playground/pool/skate park area and park their cars and trick or treat to each car. Personally I thought that was a cute idea, but it still did kind of suck.

yesterday's train of thought.

1. Oh, it’s snowing. In October… Well, this is unacceptable. 

2. It feels like the holidays and it’s not even Halloween yet. Oh well, time to make a Christmas playlist.

3. I really need some snow boots. And some sweatpants. And a few sweaters would be nice.

4. Well, now that the power’s out, I guess I’d better study. 

5. This whole studying-without-the-distraction-of-the-internet/TV thing is rather productive…

6. Note to self: Buy hot chocolate next time at supermarket.
