When September hits, there are usually 2 main thoughts going through my busy mind: 1. Oh no, school, so much stress… 2. AUTUMN!!!
I usually try to use the amount of excitement I get from the thought of beautiful, auburn decorations and scented candles to ‘cover up’ the stress and genuine sadness I get from the Everyday Hell-Hole (made of dirt) that is school. (okay, I might’ve over-exaggerated a bit… it’s actually not that bad)
I’ve been feeling very autumnal recently – I’ve been craving tea and scented candles…
I’ve even changed the look of my blog and made it as autumnal as I was able to! 😀 (What do you think?)
Autumn is just such a calming season, isn’t it? All the warm colours, so bright, as well as the ‘toned down’ undertones when it rains, the ever-so soothing sounds of said rain, the ‘autumn scents’ in the air and the ‘oh my gosh, it’s almost winter, which is super exciting, too!’ feeling.
I’ve never hated rain. Granted, I don’t enjoy shivering on the bus station alone, whilst the wind is playing origami with my umbrella and making me wish I could just be at home, curled up in a blanket and doing all of my work from there. Also, I noticed that every single time I’m waiting for the bus, I’d enviously look at the people driving cars thinking ‘That’s the life.’ Not only needn’t you leave an hour in advance because of the bloody public means of transportation are slow as heck, but you’re also warm, on your own and not in a pack of sardines with a bunch of other people, whose wet coats and umbrellas that are dripping all over you.
But, I don’t hate it. I like the fresh feeling that’s in the air and the sound when you’re standing with your umbrella and hearing the soft ‘thuds’ of raindrops.
Another thing I keep telling myself is that I’m going to get some tea, but I just keep postponing it. The truth is, I’m not sure which one to get and I don’t want to dislike it. (as I’ve always felt a certain amount of hatred towards tea in the past… I’ve changed, dammit!) So, tell me: What’s your favourite tea?
I really need some recommendations!
So, hello autumn.
And that will be it for today! A bit of a different post, I know, but I hope you enjoyed it. Those are just some thoughts of mine (that ‘came to me’ before my philosophy lesson, haha), so I thought I’d share them with you, see what you think. 🙂
What do you think about autumn? Are you as excited as I am or do you absolutely despise this season?
Oh, and if you’re from the Southern Hemisphere… well, you still have autumn, haha! 😀
Thank you so much for reading!
Have a lovely day!
