Happy Hipster Halloween.

Thank you, Texas. It finally feels like fall. I'm ready to dust off the sweaters and wear cozy layers and drool over cute ankle boots I cannot afford. But most of all, I'm ready for the smells of autumn. I have received a general consensus from fellow fall-lovers that this season outranks all others when it comes to scents. Mmmmmm, warm cinnamon, freshly baked bread, pumpkin pie, steaming apple cider, and a crisp autumn breeze. I do hope that Santiago's fall mirrors my memories of those in the States (is it cool I say "the States," now?). Since I'll be arrive during their mid-summer, I shall discover the truth soon enough! I also pray that Santiago throws down a good party for Halloween in order to compensate for the mediocre-ness of this past weekend. Although, it wouldn't have been a Happy Hipster Halloween if it had exceeded any of my expectations.

Other than poking fun at the elusive hipster (which I, in turn, have also been accused of being), I have been preparing for my trip the past couple of days by ...

1. Being in contact with the director of the TEFL Academy
2. Creating a very rough monthly expense budget for Santiago - which has proved to take up more time than assumed (but we all know what "assume" does to "u" and "me")
3. Trying to write up a free online will in case things go awry South of the equator
4. And finally organizing my important papers like a big girl should have done a long time ago.

Here's the proof:

oh, sweet Jesus!
now, this is just down-right embarrassing.
what a helper - as usual
i heart you, $1.50 target box
next to Oscar where you belong.

Well, ladies and gents, I'm off to start my nightly routine.  Buenas noches y que Dios los bendiga.
