Finally fall

Unplanned day off and I spent the whole day finishing "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed. Finally did it and now I'm feeling more like my old self before I did the whole working-till-I die-she-bang. The author reminds me of myself. We both are headstrong in our own ways and we both love to spend time alone. In the book she hikes the Pacific Crest Trail all by herself starting from the Mojava desert in California. She is on the trail for months as she experiences kindness from strangers as well as toenails that come off due to hiking long distances and shoes that don't fit her feet well... sounds gross I know. I wonder how that looks like.

My room is a mess but that is all right as there is a method in every madness. The clock now says it is time for me to eat and plan next month; I know at least 5 people who have birthdays in October. That's more than one party per week... if each of those people had a party that is.
