Birthday month officially came to a close on the 17th, the day of my sister’s birthday. It all went well, pretty much, birthday-wise. Other than that, the month’s been pretty uneventful really. I had interviews at Michael’s Arts and Crafts and Burlington Coat Factory. I was told I’d be called if either wanted to move forward with the interview process. Burlington’s declined me! And I’m waiting to see about Michael’s next week so… not sure where this will go. That would mostly be for seasonal. I’m going to check up on other applications too this week.
Oh my gosh guys, it’s Halloween. On Thursday night I went with my cousin and her three year old downtown where the stores were doing a trick or treating event. It was fun to see all the little kids in costumes and stuff. It really makes me wish I’d taken advantage of those last couple years I could have trick or treated. Haha. I think I stopped when I was around 11? I could have gone up to at least 13.
Speaking of trick or treating, I finally revealed my picture on Twitter! 😀 Yay, I’m real. Haha.

Rebel Angels (Gemma Doyle #2) by Libba Bray
My Gemma Doyle trilogy is finally finished, which means, I can binge read them all.
~Favorite Book Read~
I liked them all pretty well, I think What We Saw would be my favorite just because of how current it is (given the plot and inspiration and everything). Faking Normal was great too. And of course I’m on the blog tour for How To Be Brave and I reaaly liked it too.
~What I Posted~
I interviewed Jennifer Walkup (author of This Ordinary Life) for the Sunday Street Team.
I did another Have You Seen This? post.
