Life: Where Did October Go?

Honestly I feel like I've been in a time machine! No sooner had my Birthday month began before it was over! I guess that's what happens when you have a lot going on.

October was a busy one; from handing in my notice (horrible times), to my birthday and to anticipating my new job it was all a bit of a whirlwind, and an emotional one at that which kind of took it out of me.

Although I found leaving my old job pretty tough, and undoubtedly I let it get to me, October remains to be one of my favourite months of the year.

When October hit's I really begin to feel like the seasons have changed. The leaves change colour and fall from the trees, the nights draw in and ever so slightly it becomes cooler and for the most part I love it.

Saying that, I need to seriously have a word with myself now that the clocks have changed as it's messing up with my already early nights, I find myself drifting off at about 8 and nothing about that is cool, nor productive. No kidding my Grandma probably stays up later than I do at the moment. Not actually sure if that is the result of the nights drawing in or the stress I've been under but I'm going to put it down to, a bit of both!

Me and my sister joke that we want to live a hygge lifestyle akin to the Danes livestyle, everything about it appeals to me. From the coziness, fires, candles and friends I kind of wish I could pull it off, but I can pretty much guarantee the moment the lights were dimmed, the throws were draped over me and the candles were burning, I would for sure fall asleep and I don't need any help in that department.

So heading into November I am full of excitable anticipation. Looking forward to unraveling what my new role will be in my new job and hopefully adding value, spending nice evenings with friends, and forcing myself to stay up and hit the gym instead of the Gin.

Here's to making November count!
