October has been an "in & out" month for me, lot of things happened throughout the month both good & bad.
Halloween was pretty great - I've celebrated early by going to the "on campus" event at the library/college before the actual holiday. I went trick-or-treating around the campuses, took a walk or two through the student lounge's "haunted house" theme, and joined in a party at the staff lounge. I've collected a lot of candy in my bag (plus a popcorn ball) while I dressed up as Deckard from the film BLADE RUNNER. I even made a new friend who is into some cinema I like am before the fun began. I've really enjoyed the day, for which I called it a "pre-Halloween". Then came the actual holiday, my family didn't celebrated it this year. Still there is always a next year to come.
I have been getting back into FRUITS BASKET lately because I've decided to write an essay (for fun) about my interest in the series since 2004. I am only two pages into the essay, only completed the intro and still in the middle writing in my history, which is going well so far. Also I have been focusing on my interest in The Criterion Collection a lot, too. They always release a lot of good films (old & new) in their highest editions loaded with interesting bonus material and come in a fantastic packaging with unique cover artwork. So far, I have only watched 291 titles in my life plus a few from the Eclipse Series and bonus films from the film's special features it offers. Lynch's MULHOLLAND DRIVE, Cronenberg's THE BROOD, and Kobayashi's director's cut of KWAIDAN have finally got released on Blu-Ray so I am looking forward to checking those out as well purchase them soon.
I went to visit my mother to have lunch & spend a little time with her. She told me she was doing all right as she bought a model car kit for the both of us to work on sometime soon, which I cannot wait.
My stepbrother has already prepared to move out of the house to start his own life soon in Shoreline, but still is working at the base hospital's cafeteria. However, his father has been stalking him again a little and it has made him feel comfortable, especially the one night when his father came by trespassing at our house. Once he moves out, he will not have any trouble about his father.
My stepmother started to have some health issues and got sent to the hospital while I was out one afternoon. As I got home, my brother told my stepbrother about that happened and I felt shocked about it. (The cause was stress.) I have never felt that melancholic in my entire life before, and I almost always tell her to check her blood pleasure once she gets home from work.
Our dog Bella has leg trouble for about a week, but her leg has been feeling a lot better now. Out cat Milo had something wrong with his paw while coughing and splattered some blood on my bed. It really got me worried for a little bit, my parents are still trying to get him in to seeing a vet soon. But he is feeling better now.
Pretty much, that is all the news in my life I have to share. I am doing okay as usual, but still doing my hobbies as usual. I hope everyone has a good weekend, and hope November is turning out to be a good month.
