Five Things

...that I've been very excited about lately.

1. the grand opening of the New Haven Shake Shack. and yes, we do have our own specialty concretes (boola boola blue, anyone?). the lines have been so long, but what my roomie and I have been doing is going at around 10 at night, right before it closes at 11. way shorter lines, a lot less noisy and we get a huge booth to ourselves.



2. my new rain boots. so I was kind of stupid to think I could wait until late October to go home and get all my fall and winter shoes and boots. today it was raining like crazy. so much so that I got four flood-watch warnings on my phone (who sends those?). after only 20 minutes in the rain, my converse were soaked through, so I caved.  in all, though, I am super stoked for the new season--sweaters, jackets, boots, scarves, cozy evenings, hot chocolate and lots and lots of blankets.

3. being featured on the front page of Bloggers.com this past Sunday! Bloggers is a great networking site--almost like a Facebook for bloggers. I've met some pretty cool people there, have found some awesome blogs and the forums have a lot of valuable tips. It really made my day when I woke up on Sunday to see my blog featured. :)

4. getting my first neuroscience test of the year over with. it was a rough night of studying, but the test itself went fine. now I'm preparing for the first onslaught of papers. I have three due within four days of each other! as intimidating as it is to start my first academic paper in months, I am kind of excited to get back into it.

looks like I'll be spending quite some time here...

5. my new vow to start sending more snail mail. I picked up a couple birthday cards for my family today, as well as a halloween card. I also spotted some awesome-looking fold-and-mail stationery. right then and there I decided I wanted to start setting more hand-written letters. at least enough to warrant me buying a pack.

among the many clever halloween cards...


have a happy weekend! I'll try to get these papers done, but I'm a bit preoccupied with the first major dance of the year...
