I already went apple picking, though it was pretty hot when we went. It felt a little wrong to pick apples in the heat, but at least it's been cooler since then. Also, if you're wondering why the title of this post is Scarecrow, it's because that's what I felt like wearing this outfit in a cornfield.
So many exciting things have happened lately, and I'm pretty sure I haven't really talked about them because I'm pretty behind and scarce still on the posts. Now that this disgusting summer is coming to an end, I will likely feel more inspired and want to go outside in the cooler weather to take pictures. Fall is my favorite time for outfits. I am already planning for both fall and Halloween-inspired outfits. A trip to Salem is planned for October, so I am really excited to plan outfits for that. I actually think the hardest part will be deciding on lipstick colors. These are the tough decisions in life, right?
Anyway....back to the news in my life. First up: I was recently offered my dream job and I instantly accepted. I am ECSTATIC about this. It is at the library that I interned at and have wanted to work at for a couple of years, now. This is actually the third time I have interviewed there. Third time's a charm, as they say. I started on Monday and my first week went very well. I am so psyched! Plus...I am a reference and teen librarian which is what I always wanted. It's the dream job, guys. Not to mention it's a lot closer to my apartment and it pays more. YAY!
Second: I am now officially a cat mom. A friend of mine's girlfriend's cat had kittens and I went over their place to play with them about a month or so ago. There were four (I think): an all grey, a grey with a tiny bit of white, an all black (might've had some white on him/her), and a striped one. Anyway...I fell in love with the striped one. He was the only patterned one and he was so adorable. And he was a boy, which I wanted. He wasn't claimed by anyone yet, so I claimed him. He was ready to come home around the 11th. I thought that I would get him on the 11th, but Chris surprised me by bringing him over a couple of days earlier. His name is Poe, and he's mischievous and spastic and very cute. He is a tabby cat, and after reading up on it I found that he is what they call a mackerel tabby. He has the M on his forehead, stripes, and then spots on his tummy. He's grey with lighter tan colors on his chest, stomach, and around his eyes. Don't worry, I already took a ton of pictures and will share them soon. If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably already seen a couple of him.
That's pretty much all the major news. In other trivial news, I was having a hard time deciding what to be for Halloween. The ideas that were floating around my head were Egyptian, Wonder Woman, and Britney Spears from her VMA performance of I'm A Slave For You where she had the snake. I know that sounds pretty specific, but I always loved that song and the outfit she wore. Back when it happened, it was the coolest thing ever. I would've had to make everything, though, which is a little too much for me right now. I decided to go with Egyptian. There weren't too many costumes that I liked, but the one that I chose ended up working out pretty well. I just ordered a wig to go with it, so hopefully that works out too. I think I'm the most excited to do the makeup for it.
