Ah, October 1. This is my favorite month of the year for hundreds of reasons, including the beginning of autumn, Halloween, college football, memories of random fun in Octobers past, and this email that I received today:

Woohoo! So Chris and Christina get the distinction of being the first to schedule their trips to sunny California to see the bay area and the lovely Stanford university. They’re coming out over their spring break. I am so excited!!
Yeah! I just bought my season tickets for basketball this year. They just went on sale today, and if Tico hadn’t mentioned it to me I might have missed out! At first I found the whole process very strange because I’ve never had to pay for tickets before; then again, Georgia Tech never had a great basketball team while I was there. Stanford, on the other hand… anyway, I am pumped. The first exhibition game is November 6.
This afternoon I sat outside in the sun for a while and finally read Chapter 8 in The Two Towers. I started it about a week before I left Houston, but moving out here and the start of classes had put the book on the backburner. I enjoyed getting back into it. One of my goals for this year is to read at least one book per month. Over the past few months while finishing at Tech and then travelling through Europe and then living in Houston, I rediscovered how much I like to read. I have a whole stack of books in the “to read” pile, so I have plenty of material to keep to my goal.
