Taking a Pause to Reflect

What happened to my autumn? Things have been zooming by so fast these past two months, I'm not even sure where
I'm supposed to be anymore. I technically don't even have a home, so much as a loving place to stay for a bit. For a fleeting moment, I even forgot who
I was supposed to be. I did take some time to stop and photograph the changing trees, but it seems so long ago now that it's as if it could have been last year's camping
Well, the move is 99% completed. All that's left is a big trash run, and figuring out what to do with the now useless the lawn equipment. In a weird way, it feels like I'm just on sabbatical, and everything will be like it was when I wake up tomorrow. That's stress to a degree I am quite unaccustomed. I even decided last night to completely skip the annual family Thanksgiving trip, when I realized that I was likely to fail my CCNA class next December without a serious time out to study up. One thing I dislike more than moving and loosing our office, and that's wasting time by failing classes.
As much turmoil has been floating about my waters these past months, I do take solace in those few bright lights that shone through clouds. Bush is finally out of there, and we elected someone who can at least form complete sentences. Can't say I'm a big fan of his politics, but I'd be a liar if I said I didn't like him. The Machinima Expo went down very well, I had an amazing time at the panels and watching some quality machinima flicks. I was so impressed, I even felt the need to phone in my accolades
. But, perhaps the greatest solace this month was a Quantum of Solace (come on, you saw this coming!) which, from an action movie junkies perspective, was the greatest 007 film ever made. Ever. God I loved that movie.
For now, I'm just going to kick back, relax, and enjoy the ever-living hell out of my weekend. Maybe eat me some of this really yummy looking candy.
