Well hello there.
I wold say that I’ve missed you, but in some ways I actually enjoyed my summer for the first time in a while. Don’t get me wrong, it came with a lot of hellish (maybe a tad of an exaggeration) experiences and it tried my patience in so many ways but it also gave me some great weather, a realisation that I actually no longer despise what I look like and can wear almost all of my summer clothes with confidence and also fall in love with crop tops and barrettes (which I am mildly sad I have to sort of say goodbye to in some way) and a much needed holiday where the most strenuous thing that I did was a walking tour to do with Greek mythology and that wasn’t even that difficult because I walk all the time.
But there is a part of me that has really loved the fact that over the past few weeks I’ve spent far too long looking at the knitwear/jumper section of multiple websites (but mainly Topshop) and thinking about all the ways that I am going to style allll my oversized clothing. I wore a jumper so massive the other day that one someone thought it was my brother’s (not out the ordinary I have to be honest) and two it then fit them and there was still room in it on them. I don’t even care, it was THE comfiest thing I have bought in a while. Actually maybe the second comfiest because I recently bought a jumper from Topman that I love so much I’m a little sad that I can’t live in it and wear it every day so have had to settle with just wearing every single week.
And while I am for sure in the minority as everyone around me is bereft at the fact that it’s getting colder and the mornings are darker and the sun is setting earlier, I’m kind of loving it.
However, I will say that it is mildly horrifying that it is now October, because seriously it feels like this year just started and yet we are already in the final quarter and it’s slightly terrifying because I feel like I have nothing to show for it. I do have things to show for it, I know I do but when I just sit and think about things it kind of feels like I don’t…does that make sense? I feel like it doesn’t, but that’s what’s going on in my head and that very rarely makes any sense it has to be said.
Like I mentioned yesterday, I’m feeling kind of good about this month. Some people see the turning of midnight from one year to another as fresh start, or when the seasons transition out of winter into spring, but for some reason I always see the idea of a fresh start comes around the same time as school starts back up again. I don’t really know why that’s the case, but it just is and it’s now that time of year again and the energy around me is just buzzing quietly around me and I’m excited for that.
I’m excited for this season and all it could offer. I’m going to hold onto and grab every opportunity that I can in it. It’s the first time I’ve felt like this in a long time.
