Listening To: Flowers in Your Hair by The Lumineers
Quoted: "It's very sad to me that some people are so intent on leaving their mark on the world that they don't care if that mark is a scar." - John Green
Happy fall to you!! My dad claims fall officially began at 4:44. I don't know if that's legit, or if he made it up, but I hope it's true. That sounds so whimsical, doesn't it?
Like, close your eyes and make a wish and by the time you're finished ... fall is here! :)
Fall is my most favorite season. I don't like pumpkin spice lattes, or anything pumpkin-flavored, but I'm down with everything else folks love to rhapsodize about. Boots and tights and dresses and jackets. Halloween and bright leaves and the corn maze. (Which is usually shaped like someone's head ... which is weirdly funny and also mildly disturbing.)
I'm so excited for a new season.
I don't have much to blog about besides that.
Scratch that. I'll also mention these things:
1. Today I'm wearing a dress with a print that can only be described as crazy-horse-polka-dot. In case you see me and wonder if I picked it out in the dark, the answer is no. It is intentional, and it is awesome. S'my favorite dress. Giddy up, etc.
2. Have you seen the Harry Potter-Myers Briggs chart? It's so fun. Jump over and figure out your personality twin, and then come back here and let me know. According to the chart, I'm Luna Lovegood. Honestly, this comparison has been made more than a few times, and I'm fine with that. I love Luna. I'm not quite as free-spirited as Luna (or as comfortable in my own skin) but I'm definitely in my head a lot. (NARGLES!) I've noticed lots of writers are INFP's. Anne Shirley, another of my favorite literary heroes, is also an INFP, too. I'm in good company. (This is a good time to mention that I get a little eye-rolly when people cling so hard to Myers-Briggs and various other classifications. I think you should just be who you are and not worry so much about defining it, or defining other people. But that's borderline thought-provoking in a post that's about crazy horse dresses and Harry Potter.)
I've taken the Myers-Briggs a few of times, always for school-related things. Weirdly, I barely score an "I" (the first letter - E or I, signals extroversion vs. introversion). I think I'm a bona fide introvert. But strangely, I'm on the line. I even tested "E" once. I must have been feeling very frisky that day. An ENFP would make me a Ron Weasley. Good company there, too.
3. Speaking of the Weasleys! I was reading an interview with Carrie Hope Fletcher, who is playing (or was playing?) Eponine on the West End. After reading about her, I listened to some of her music and my word, what a voice! This song is just adorable. "I'd date Draco Malfoy, if I thought he could commit." Ha! :)
I think Gilbert Blythe needs to be added to the mix, don't you? Any other book-boys she missed?
I'm off to bake a miniature apple pie and read for a bit. And make a wish. Or two. Or ten. Welcome, welcome lovely Autumn!
