Howdy, y'all! I'm writing this from the depths of my favorite time of year. Sure, October brings with it all of the fun and ~spooky~ Halloween vibes, but it's also on the cusp of summer's end and autumn's start, which means that summer desperately tries to grasp on to life, letting out its last gasps in the form of ill-timed heatwaves and tropical storms, delaying any chance of seasonal outings until it's almost too damn cold to want to do anything. Which is kind of where I'm at now (donations for my own personal SAD lamp are more than welcome). Plus I always spend way too much damn money on Halloween festivities (no regrets though).
I like November. It's usually pretty seasonally on-point weather-wise. The most gorgeous leaves never change until November, right before they drop, forging a reminder of the impermanence of everything beautiful in this world, forcing you to drink in every last drop before winter's cold, icy death grip comes pounding on your chest.
Autumn's pretty chill. Plus I get to eat like an animal on Thanksgiving, and that's pretty tight.
But with the change in season comes the changes in my mood and mindset. November has promised to bring with it a lot of awesome things--concerts, get-togethers with friends, my freakin' comic book coming out (!!!), yet my brain won't let me enjoy any of it. Instead, my head gets consumed with thoughts of endings, failures, the impending winter that will wipe away my favorite season.
But that's a story for another time and place. Point is, November is and can be great as long as I don't get to caught in my own head. Something that's prevented me from finishing this blog post for about a week. Speaking of which, here's more on my weird, weird brain and inability to finish things in a timely fashion:
And, oh yeah, in case you haven't heard. I have a freakin' comic book coming out. Betty & Veronica: Vixens #1 will be available in comic shops and digitally on 11.22.17. And here's a trailer (!!) for it:
Peace out, cool kids!
