December soon? - all these lines fall short of what I had in mind

09:02 pm - December soon?
Wow, I don't even know where the time has gone.
October was, in fact, delightful. Chicago was super neat and we crammed as much as possible into 3.5 days. 500+ pictures thanks to Kyle the paparazzo. It totally gave me the traveling bug- I wish we would have made it to DC for the rallies, but we were too broke/burnt out from Chicago. Halloween has been more enjoyable the past few years. A makeshift bat costume and a few games of beer pong made for an enjoyable evening. Feeling old though, I believe we were home by midnight.
So November is here. The past weeks have gone by quickly enough and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I will not be making it up north, which I guess is just kind of normal now. Thankfully I have somewhere to go (which is nice, but still odd. But yes, very very nice). Jenny's birthday and the Michigan game should make that whole stretch of days super enjoyable. I don't love the holidays, but when you look past the commercialized stuff and the overplayed songs, there is a certain energy that you can't help but enjoy. I'll be back in northeast Ohio for Christmas, but my visit will be super abbreviated. I'm hoping for an annual Christmas Day reunion in Kirtland, people please tell me this is a possibility!
I'm planning on running a half marathon in May, in Cleveland (for all of you Clevelanders- feel free to come cheer me on!) with the sisters + Kyle. It's nice to have something to work towards, a goal to strive for. Keeps me in check. I'm reading books and waking up far too early, but it feels good.
Friendships feel different these days- despite the distance and the time between e-mails/phone calls, I still feel close to people. I like that. I wish I felt closer to some, but everything ebbs and flows.
9p is basically bed time. Super neat.
