Oh how I love October!

Hey guuuuuuuuuuuuuys :)

If I have not made it clear enough in my previous posts, let me re-iterate that I LOVE FALL.

These fall days are full of ecstacy.
I wanted to share with you a few things I did this weekend (I meant to post this yesterday but there were complications, sorry about that).

First off, on Saturday there was a zombie parade in my neighborhood. It was impressive. The costumes were quite realistic, and, I'm not exaggerating, scary.
It was the perfect excuse for me to take a break between the long hours of homework and studying that were eating up my afternoon.
The French aren't much of Halloween celebrators, so this really was a fun surprise.
Unfortunately, I grabbed my camera too late, and only managed to get one good picture. Here it is:

Second of all, I've been reading this graphic novel called Fun Home by Alison Bechdel. It's one of those books which you cannot put down, and leaves you feeling smarter than before.
Have you read it? I definitely recommend it if not.

And last but not least, (definitely not least) I wanted to tell you that I'M GOING TO THE STATES ON FRIDAY!!!!!
I'm so exited! (Can you tell?)

I'm going to Bethesda, Maryland, to see my mom's side of the family which I haven't seen in over a year (can't wait!), and I'm also going to spend lots of time in Washington DC doing all the fun stuff: museums, restaurant and bakery testing, shopping...
OH and I get to go trick-or-treating! This is honestly the biggest thrill for me I think. I've always felt that I missed out BIG-TIME on this because I don't live in the States.

I may not have the chance to post anything before I leave, because I have many things to organize before my departure if I don't want to return from the States and be completely behind on schoolwork.

Don't worry, I did plan several posts that I'm excited to share with you which are scheduled for when I'm gone.

I hope you have a wonderful week everybody :)


  1. the zombie parade is called "Not very dead walk" :p

  2. Yay! Can't wait to see you!!! And did your Mom tell you: You get to go trick or treating TWICE!!!! One time in Frederick and then a few days later again in Besthesda! Yippy! I am collecting books for you to look at while you are here! Any requests?

    1. Oh yay! No mom didn't tell me!
      I will send you an e-mail if I can think up any requests, thanks :)

  3. I read Fun Home!
    I really liked it! Very intense.

    1. I know... I think I will have to read it a second time to understand it completely.

  4. That zombie event looks like a lot of fun! The costumes are so nicely done!
    and omg!!! Yay! I'm excited that you get to participate in trick or treating! It is a lot of fun. Even though I am a too old for it now (17 years old hehe) , I will be handing out candy =)

    I hope you have fun here in the states and don't worry about making blog post! Packing (as least for me since I pack everything) takes forever!!


    1. I think that at 17 I will still be enthusiastic about trick-or-treating x)

  5. Zombie parade?!?! That sounds absolutely fantastic! I'm so jealous! I can't wait to hear about your trip!

    1. I definitely will take lots of pics from my trip :)

  6. Wow, what a great post filled with things I enjoy as well! We have a lot in common. I love anything involving zombies and own that graphic novel by Alison Bechdel. Oh, and I am also a huge fan of fall. Have fun in the states! As I'm sure you know, DC has a lot of vegan eats! :-)

    1. Yes, I am going to have fun eating vegan in DC :)
