Snapshots from My Week

Happy Halloween everyone!

Thankfully, I had a relaxing week. Enjoyed a fun date with my boyfriend! We sat on top of the wooden platform playground waiting for the restaurant, Sea Island, to open. The above shot was taken from my seat. Even though the paint is chipping, the place has a lot of character. I had some delicious shrimp linguine.

We chatted about our weight loss and fitness accomplishments, anime, literary analysis, our adventures with school, software engineering, and various other topics underneath the sun. We went for a walk in the park afterwards and enjoyed the clouds as we laid down on the grass. I loved talking with him. His sense of humor makes me cry from laughter. I miss him already…


While volunteering at the school, the kids excitedly described their costumes to me in great detail. Ninja turtles are still popular! Getting them to focus on reading was difficult, so we chatted about their Halloween plans.


I later checked out some offrendas that were exhibited at the Missions for Dia de Los Muertos. Families placed pictures of loved ones who passed away.

I checked out one wicked episode of the “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and was surprised to learn that some of the characters names were similar to “Sabrina, The Teenage Witch”. It’s definitely not a remake though. This British version is fairly dark and chilling as the title suggests.

I think if I would continue this series, I am fairly certain that I would let out a few bloodcurdling screams that could disturb my next door neighbors. I was on the edge of my seat watching a scarecrow chase her in a labyrinth made of hay. 
Goodbye October! I had a great time participating in OctPoWriMo2018 where I learned a lot of poetry forms. I read some beautiful, funny, scary, brilliant, and profound poems out in the WP world. You guys inspired me this month!
