Ode to November

It seems like the months have progressed faster and faster. I thought September flew by, and then I thought October went by even faster, but November has exceeded the speed of the past two months by far! The fact that we have next week off for Thanksgiving break really helps.
....can we have a week break off school every month? I think that is a great idea.
I cannot believe November is almost over, I cannot believe I will be done this semester in a few short weeks, and I cannot believe I will be leaving on my mission in just a couple of months. The concept of time freaks me out more than anything, so let's not dwell on timelines.
I'm getting to the point in the semester where I can see the end of my checklist:
Take my last midterm in this class—check. 
Take my last quiz in that class—check. 
Write my last research paper in this class—check. 
Finish up my last assignments in that class—check. 
I cannot tell you how good it feels to check the final things off and see the end in sight.
I'm too excited to be done.
So here are a couple of things that sum up November:
Eating anything and everything with spinach, mushrooms, and balsamic dressing = I die in heaven.
While on the subject of food. Celery and Peanut butter is also my go to. I'm still 5 years old, it's ok.
School. Ugh. But my personal favourite of the month—taking an online midterm until 2 AM. Never again.
significant dates. November 1, 8, and good.
The cold, brisk weather. My ideal.
Christmas prep. 33 days people!
Letters from my one and only.
Mission Paper Messes. Looks like I will be flying to Vancouver in December to beg the Portuguese consulate to let me into their country....I solemnly swear that I am not a terrorist.
Shopping online. Someone please help me with my mission wardrobe. I got nothing.
My peeve for the month..."easy close" packaging that literally takes me 5 minutes to properly close. Am I the only one?
I just want to give a personal shout out to the month of November for being so stellar. I was expecting a less than excellent performance, but it far exceeded my expectations. Cheers to you November. Thanks for finally showing me some mercy.
