Not Much Going On

Like the title says, my life has become pretty boring since school started again. Is anyone else ready for the holidays like me? I've already been planning my Halloween costume. I've decided I'm going to be Lyra from The Golden Compass. I haven't finished the first book yet, but so far I really like her character and I think she kind of looks like me. My friend Frankie from Life as Frankie Finds It has been helping me figure out what to use and JJ's going to lend me Maxwell, her stuffed guinea pig, to use as my daemon.

I still have math tutoring on Thursday, but Aaron decided we had to banish Riley to her room while I work or else I get distracted to easily. Me? Get distracted? Never! We also had to cut back on the baking since Mother was worried I was eating too many sweets. But she promised we can go crazy for the holidays. Which is another reason I can't wait for Halloween! It's also my favorite holiday, of course.

Well, I thought I'd just give a quick update before I go back to doing homework. Not that I really want to do homework. But apparently it's mandated.


  1. Hey, this is Summer. :-)

    I think Lyra would be an awesome costume for you. I really liked that book series, although the movie was a little disappointing.

    I haven't chosen a Halloween costume yet. Dressing up is really fun, though! (As are candy and baked goods.)


  2. Salut,
    I'm looking forward to seeing photos of your costume! Sadly, I'm back in France, so I won't be celebrating Halloween this year. It's La Toussaint for me, which is depressing and not overly fun. If I were still in the US, I'd probably be Hannah Montana this year.

  3. I think your costume will be great! That stinks about cutting back on the sweets!


  4. How exciting that you're going to be Lyra. I love her character. I hope you'll post pics of your costume!!
    School's taken over our lives, too, so we totally understand.
    Autumn, Summer, and Jade

  5. The sounds like a good costume. I hope to see pictures! I haven't decided what I'll be yet. Keisha and I will probably do something together.

    Homework is never fun and takes up too much time. But I guess we have to do it, huh?

  6. Don't worry everyone, I will post pictures! But you have to wait until it's closer to Halloween. Unless I get really impatient myself!


  7. I LOVE Halloween! I don't have a costume yet, my human is lazy, but I think I want to be a witch -I know, not very original- but witches are cool, specially on Halloween, lol!

    You're going to look great dressed as Lyra! I loved the book.

    I can't believe the Holidays are almost here; it's the best time of the year! Can't wait to see pics of you in your outfit, and also of Daemon's.
