SimplyMe: It’s Been a While…

Hello my lovely durians~!

I am so sorry that it has taken me 4 months to do a SimplyMe post! I suppose a part of me felt my life was becoming exhausting and repetitive with work and school being my only activities. However, coming back from New York, I’ve found myself doing things outside of school and work that are worth talking about.

October 25thBlood & Guts Zombie 5k Run

One week after MikuExpo I had my very first 5k obstacle run! I had been training for about one month prior, but even then I still had to walk through a lot of the course.  It was still a ton of (painful) fun with my mom and brother / STR editor, Kyler! They were super supportive and helpful and afterwards they, along with my dad, treated me to a Thai dinner and margarita!

October 31stHalloween

I can’t tell you all the last time I had dressed up for Halloween.  I can say that it has indeed been a while.  I hadn’t even planned on dressing up this year until my amazing friend, Sam, Anthony, and I had dinner and then, unexpectedly, went to the Halloween store.  I ended up buying a “Where’s Waldo” beanie and BOOM! I had my costume idea. I managed to find a red and white, striped thrifted shirt for $3 so the costume didn’t even cost me $20.  I may have ended up being mistaken for a candy cane, but I pulled off a cute Halloween look without breaking the bank.

November 8thMonty Python’s Spamalot & Shopping

In between Halloween and the first week of November I had to take my college midterms and do a pretty big presentation on photographer Shomei Tomatsu. Thankfully they are all over and a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders! My parents told me that they had recently gone out to the local dinner theater and saw a showing of Spamalot. When I heard this I told them that I had been dying to see it and I was thinking about getting tickets for Anthony and I. A couple days later my dad took me, by surprise, and told me that he was getting us tickets and that we needed to choose a day. We chose Saturday since I was off, so I bought us matching outfits for the occasion. Before the show we went shopping at a couple of different stores where I managed to purchase two packs of the new Phantom Forces Pokemon cards and the Unofficial Hatsune Mix manga! We then changed into our snazzy and fancy new clothes and made our way to the dinner theater where we had a fantastic time! Monty Python’s Spamalot was as hilarious as the movie was and more. It was definitely worth seeing and I hope you all get the chance to see it as well!

Well that pretty much catches us up on my life! It’s been pretty eventful and it appears that there is more to come with Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner. I hope you all enjoyed this post and I want to hear from you! Feel free to comment down below if anything awesome has happened to you lately or if you have any thoughts on today’s post.

REMEMBER: Shakespeare had the first recorded use of the term “Swagger.” Is this important? Nope, but interesting.
