Word on the street is that it autumn has arrived

Generally the meaning of fall is a bit different for me and involves a fair amount of pumpkin consumption BUT seeing as I am residing in a different country for the first time this time of year I thought I would replace the customary traditions (think early morning trip to the Balloon Fiesta) with a new notion.

Simplicity

If comfort is the word of winter, then enjoyment and simplicity are the words of the fall months. Simplicity is underrated, particularly in America where you have to have a multitude of options at your disposal at all time. When I say ‘you’ I suppose I actually just mean me in this particular instance.

At home, I am always changing the tv or radio channel to see what else is on, constantly perusing various websites on different tabs, always thinking of what I have to do next or what else I could be doing at the moment.

Sometimes you just reach a breaking point where you just have to force yourself to stop. drop. and roll.

And that particular breaking point would be if you are fire..

hahah but really, on a less dramatic note I am going to make a concerted effort to just BE, just enjoy every moment because I am only here for 5 months and I dont want to look back and wish I had appreciated it more because I tend to do that fairly often and it is SO frustrating.

That said, I am working on treasuring the ordinary.

A simple breakfast

Subtantial growth of my sweater drawer

Clean clothes


Perfect running weather

The fact that I finally have a bike


Friends, both here

and there


And I begin this new regard for basic luxuries with a Tuesday filled with beautiful nothing in particular.

bonkers

Now, I get that humans are creatures of habit, but there appear to be certain trends defining my life at the moment to a slightly ridiculous extent.

First off there is the cup collection I have managed to accumulate in my room

Slightly mortifying, but present nonetheless.

Then we come to the endless bowls of bran flakes I have consumed (seems licorice has been replaced)

My obsession with libraries and books has not vanished either

Red lip stick has been the go-to make up attempt to mask my laziness in getting ready for going out.

Evidently I have not grown out of my 13 year old desire to take pictures of myself…?

Classy, I know.

And I have not abandoned my creepy ways either you all must be astounded to know. ;)

Old playlists have been jammed to recently as well, reminders of old times I suppose you could say

But I am working to appreciate where I am at the moment as well,  because honestly the sun shines the same round the globe
