Halloween :)

As it progresses further into September I have realized that I am getting more and more excited for Halloween. As it approaches I think about the ABC Family 13 Nights of Halloween. I know they are not scary movies but them are some pretty great ones. One of my favorites is Halloween Town, well pretty much all four movies.

This movie is fairly older and I don’t know what it is about the movie but I absolutely love it. It makes me think what a town like Halloween Town would really be like and how amazing that would be to live there. I know many say there are no such things as ghost, ghouls, and goblins, but it is nice to imagine. As you can all tell Halloween is my favorite holiday, to me though it’s not about the candy we use to get when we were children but the memories. Also going to haunted houses, picking out a pumpkin and carving it, decorating the porch, and dressing up. No matter what age Halloween is enjoyed by many different age groups. Where like Christmas where most middle class or poverty stricken families hate because as a society we have changed that holiday into received or giving gifts. The holiday is no longer about sharing it with family but buying things for others. Where in Halloween you do not have to worry about that. Yes, costumes are expensive but some of the best costumes I have seen were ones made at home not store bought. I for one will reuse my old costumes and just switch every year or I make my own. I will not spend money on a costume I can only wear one or two times a year, but some will. I am the one who will do all out decorating my own place with spooky and scary stuff but I am not waste that on a costume. Although Halloween is an amazing time of year I also love what also comes with Halloween.  The hay rides you go on and drinking warm Apple cider and watching the leaves change colors. Many say the leaves changing is them dying but what I see is transformation into something even more beautiful. I know that the leaves are dying but it is the same thing as humans go through. We enter the world and transform into children, teenagers, adults, and the elderly. Once it is our time we die and make room for another human being to live their life. The leaves are the same concept, they die but once winter is complete and spring time is here New leaves begin to grow and so the cycle repeats.

So as September comes closer and closer to an end I am already plotting what to do this Halloween…should I just relax and decorate or go to some haunted houses? If you vote haunted houses how about so ideas around Pennsylvania please? 🙂

Well hello, again!

So I see here I have not written in a while and I have many valid points as to why I haven’t but no one wants to hear those. So I am here just to give an update and now with my new open time I can start to do this whole “blog experience”. So since I have last spoken I have moved out of my parents twice lived with my boyfriend´s dad and evil step mother. Oops I’m sorry I mean to say step mother. That was….interesting we could say. Once they kicked us out back to my parents it was. Then left again (family issues aka “me”) and lived in a truck for three weeks, right across from my parents back yard. Now I am living in a beautiful huge house with my own bathroom and beautiful yard. It is just me and my boyfriend and our lovely new puppy Apollo. Okay so that was a lie, or an over exaggeration as I would say. It was all true till where we are living, yes we were “homeless” for some time. Now we are living with friends in their home and we do have a puppy named Apollo, sort of. He is still with our friend he is a few weeks shy of being able to leave. Once he comes of age he is ours to bring home though! Which as you can tell by the exclamation point I am a bit excited!!! (Those were just for fun (: ) My boyfriend is back at Applebees which sucks for him I do not miss working there but it is a paycheck so no complaints for me. I am slowly getting to a better place than I was previously. I know that sounds weird I had a loving family and boyfriend, a “secure” home, a good paying job, and almost no bills. Now I pay monthly rent, I could be kicked out for any reason I guess and I do not see my family as much. Although it seems to be a step back for me it is a step forward, well a few. I am now looking for my own apartment (again) and I will be getting a handsome little puppy. My life is slowly falling into place. Okay, I originally came to talk about being homeless but I will post another blog about that in its own that one will take a lot more room and I never want these to just be a wall of writing like some. Where is the fun in that? Oh right THERE IS NONE!! Considering my circumstances I may not be where I thought I would be back when I was in high school but for present day, it just shows you how much can change in such short time. It has only been two years since my high school graduation and this was not where I expected to be. With that in mind I am still happy where I am now I wouldn’t change a thing even if I could. This is my life and it maybe not be perfect but…I am happy.
