Life in Mid November (According to Francesca)

I was originally going to blog about managing your free time today, but then I realized that I had already done that a couple of months ago and didn't want to be an outfit post repeater! I feel like a lot of my posts seem chatty, but I don't know if I've done a proper chatty post in a while. Or at least, one that hasn't been entirely too dramatic. I mean, this will probably be dramatic in its own way because that's just who I am as a person, but at least it should be uplifting.

First thing, it's almost my birthday and I am really stoked to be spending it in Cleveland with my friends. I work all day on Saturday and then we'll be doing something that I'm not entirely sure of yet. I told them I'd be fine with going to McDonald's and they told me to be a bit classier, so we're going to Burger King instead. I kid, I kid. I can't believe I won't be a teenager anymore! Crazy things happening over here...

Then I head home for a little (and much needed) extended Thanksgiving break. I'm excited to see my family and friends, especially to see my aunt get married the day after Thanksgiving! So yes, instead of hiding out in my house avoiding the Black Friday shoppers that invade Niagara Falls for the outlet mall, I get to brave the real world in my tulle skirt to see her marry her boyfriend who has essentially been just as much of an uncle as the rest of them.

I do feel the need to mention (or rather, when asking my roommate what I should blog about she told me to mention) the fact that I recently counted and reorganized my lipstick drawer, only to discover that I have 55 at the moment. My first reaction was "really, that's it?" and my second reaction was to cry because I can't even imagine how much those have cost me over the years. But yes, if you've ever wondered how many lipsticks I hoard in that drawer of mine, that is the magic number that will most likely increase over the holiday season because I have a problem. I can admit it.

Things have slightly cooled down in the realm of Francesca. I have a better handle on classes and final assignments. I have a couple of more rough outlines to go through, but other than that, I think I'm on the right track to not crying my way until the end of the semester. Three cheers to that, am I right?

How has your November been so far?
