I think I call every season my favourite time of year while living it. (Except for spring, springs are difficult and I have learnt to fear them.) So right now I'm in love with autumn.

The yellow maple leaves like starbursts against the shiny black pavements, red-cheeked apples and approaching Hallowe'en.

(Also, Halloween or Hallowe'en? I was taught the latter spelling and I think I'll stick with it either way. The apostrophe adds a certain flair, does it not?)

In other news, I applied to university today. It all feels very grown up and surreal and I'm only beginning to understand what I've got myself into.


  1. Aww, I love your new profile picture! And the nes layout is great, too! ;) ♥

  2. I've only ever seen it spelled "Halloween," but you're right about the apostrophe adding flair. How exotic! haha

  3. I think the apostrophe is a remnant of Hallowe'en being the abbreviation of All Hallow's Eve. It may be slightly outdated by now, or at least outside of the UK. :)
