Scared & Alone...

I never realized how much I was dependent on others. Not really in a, "Help me with this task because I'm unable or don't know how to do it," kind of way, but an, "I don't want to do this alone," kind of way. 
This semester has been so busy, I've never really had time to worry about doing things alone. I am getting used to eating alone, sleeping alone, and being alone most of the time. 
It's weird not having a roommate down the hall. 
I think I've grown so much I'm the last eight weeks, and I am starting to slowly feel more and more prepared for adult life (and post college life). 
I don't mind responsibility. It gives me a purpose. I like (even though I know I do complain sometimes) being busy. 
Having something to do all the time makes me feel useful. I don't like feeling bored. And I never feel bored now. I actually sometimes wish that I had a little bit more free time.  
I haven't had time to see friends and just hang out before I leave in 60 (Holy cow... SIXTY!) days. 
As the days dwindle down, it gets more and more evident that my days here at Bowling Green State University are numbered... And I'm really sad about that. I'm going to miss it here. I love so many things about this place. 
I've learned so much, made so many friends who I hope are the life-long kind, and I am just so thankful for the opportunities that BGSU has afforded me.  
I didn't mean for this to get so sentimental.  
I saw a scary movie (Annabelle) the other day, and being all alone in a dark, secluded apartment is NOT an ideal location to be while the fear is still fresh.  
I decided to blog to help take my mind off it all.

Anyways... Yeah... I guess the end :)

31 Days of Halloween...

On the first day of Halloween, a monster gave to me:
A scarecrow in a pumpkin patch.


It's October 1st! It's finally the start of the best section of the calendar year!
My four favorite days of the year:
1. Christmas Eve
2. Christmas Day
3. My Birthday (Oct. 8th)
4. Black Friday (The day after Thanksgiving)

I am fully able to justify this list.

* Christmas Eve is perfect, because everything is so happy, and it's the height of the holiday season. All the hype is still there, and everyone is especially happy. My family also has amazing Christmas Eve traditions, which really put this day to the top of the list.

*Christmas Day is the second best day, because it's Christmas, the day we've been waiting for. Everyone is so happy, loving, etc. The only reason it's the second best, is because once the day is over, there's no more Christmas music, and everyone goes back to being crazy as soon as it's all over.

*My Birthday is my third favorite day of the year because it's just another excuse to be happy & extra cheerful.. and, I mean.. it was the day I was born! Haha

*I love Black Friday, not because of the ridiculous deals, but because it's just a fun tradition that I've been doing with my family/friends for years, and I just like the excitement of it. It's a day (night) full of nostalgia. Haha


Each day of October I'm going to post a Halloween song that I love to get everyone in the spirit!! :)

My song for today is:
