50,006

Here's a play version of my book cover. 

Officially winning this evening was exciting, but the winner video was pretty lame. Bahahaha! I'll just have to make my own. 

I kind of feel like I wove a giant piece of cloth this month. Now, I just have to turn the cloth into a dress. 

Apparently, my 50,000th word was "at"

Please feel free to encourage me to get back to the piece of cloth and turn it into something wearable!

New winter hood

I saw a new style winter hood that I thought would be really nice for spending time outdoors. But I didn't quite realize how it would look on. 
I'd like you all to join me in giving the NSA a warm welcome to my blog.

Happy Thanksgiving!

As of yet today, I have eaten no wonderful Thanksgiving foods. I had school lunch today that included my least favorite food IN THE WORLD! Shishamo is basically a small fish that you eat in its entirety - head, tail, bones, eggs, and all. Today's version was fried, so at least I didn't have to look at it. Ugh. 

But there's a tree up in the station! Actually, there are two. So fun. And some random Santas. 

So, this year I have a lot to be thankful for. But one thing has become sharply clear to me this year. I've been wrestling a lot about what to do with my future. I love being near my family, and I love being off on adventures in faraway lands. It's a hard choice, but one that I'm incredibly grateful to have. I'm grateful to have a family that is loving. I'm grateful to have opportunities for adventure. So even though I have some hard choices before me, I'm so thankful for the opportunity to have those hard choices.

I am also thankful that even though I was goofing off writing this blog post and missed my bus by a split second, another bus that happened to be going my way showed up right behind the bus I missed. Oops. 

But I am NOT thankful for shishamo!
