Farewell Dearest November

Monday, November 30, 2009

November, you were beautiful with your golden leaves and your honey breezes. You made my fingertips and the tips of my nose cold. You broke my heart but gave me a sweet dose of what lies ahead.
The month of November for me was very... filling. Not necessarily
fulfilling because I don't feel a sense of accomplishment. Although a little part of what I'm about to share is (# 7 down below). I recently won the beautiful blogger award from the sweethearted Kelly Ann. I'm supposed to share seven interesting facts about myself but I'm going to change that a little bit and share seven things that occurred during the month of November.

1. I went to San Francisco and my love for the city was renewed. Among the city lights and the busy streets I felt reassured that my desire to transfer there in less than two years was stronger than I thought.

2. Upon receiving some items I won from a giveaway, I realized just how wonderful blogging can be and how the friendships you form through the medium are very beautiful.

3. I cried and cried and cried.

4. I ordered a camera online. Nothing fancy but I'm really excited to begin shooting film!
5. I chose my classes for next semester and swooned over the fact that I will be having a very artistic schedule (photography, drama, a poetry class).
6. I drove on the freeway for the first time.

7. Perhaps my greatest accomplishment was finishing my novel. For those of you who read my blog you know I participated in Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month). For those of you who do not know what it is, it's a crazy event that occurs in the month of November where a person tries to write a 50,000+word novel during the span of that month. I completed my novel with a good hour and half to spare before the deadline. My word count was 50,143. This makes it the second time I've participated in Nanowrimo and the second time I've won as well.

I know part of the award is to tag seven other bloggers but I'm not big on tagging. You're welcome to tag yourself if you would like though.
The pictures below were taken in two orchards near my house. I was pleasantly surprised when I came across the second orchard that was hidden behind the first. The trees covered in yellow leaves seemed endless. It was so beautiful.
