I love October! Curtis and I started dating in October of 2005. Fall might be my favorite season, mostly because I love sweaters more than I love coats, and you can wear nice boots without getting them mucked up in snow. Additionally, I want to get married in October of 2013. Basically October and I should be together.
Campus during fall is so pretty too!
And another thing.
STARBUCKS PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES. What was unfortunate last year was that, during this time, I was slowly investigating an occasional (but increasing in frequency) all-encompassing, life-halting stomach pain (I’m exaggerating) that would crop up at the weirdest times. Finally, with the power of medical databases, I deduced that my stomach pain was correlated with the amount of milk intake I had. Including pumpkin spice lattes–well, and all other lattes, for that matter. My doctor told me to self-diagnose myself with lactose intolerance, which I’m pretty sure is what I decided.
I have a bunch of theories about how and why I developed it, but I won’t go into it now. I also love milk so this has been a problem.
For about a year, the idea of lattes repulsed me, for fear of getting those stomach pains. Luckily, that’s worn off, and I just pop a lactase supplement with my latte, and now I’m BACK IN BUSINESS. (It’s really hard to take a pill with burning hot coffee, let me tell you.)
The other thing about October that I love is HALLOWEEN. Unfortunately, clusters are scheduled over Halloween weekend. I will complain more about it when the time comes. For now, let’s reminisce about how I built Mandalorian armor in the dorm room sophomore year.
