I love Chicago. I think I want to live there some day. I can't form my thoughts well enough to say anything about the trip, but overall it was enjoyable, despite a few burned bridges. My pictures aren't that great so I don't know if I'll post any of them. Instead, here is a video of Rufus, the turtle I bought for Caroline in Chinatown:

Caroline and I are the ones giggling in the background. He is too tiny for me to focus on, so I haven't been able to get any good pictures, but trust me, he is adorable. And don't worry, we are getting him a bigger tank.
My paid account is expiring in 3 days and I think that means I can't use my custom mood theme. I hope not, because it makes me giggle every time I pick my mood. I'm so retardedly amused by it. Oh, Newsies. Sigh.

So anyway, it's November and I've started my novel. As of this moment I have 826 and I'm in the middle of a sentence. My working title is "The Art of Making Excuses" but I'll probably change it at some point. It depends how well it fits with whatever direction the plot goes. So far, the writing is going pretty well, but it's not like I've gotten around to the action yet, so we'll see how that goes.
Because I have too much time on my hands (or rather, because I'm not working on things I should), I made my own custom mood theme. A Newsies mood theme, because I love that movie like I am twelve.

Samples of my totally awesome mood theme: let's soak 'em for crutchy! )

I am perhaps a bit too enamored with my own work; all I did was crop them, basically. I cropped 'creative' so the headline reads "NUDE CORPSE ON RAILS CONNECTED TO TROLLEYS" which makes me giggle. I am so completely lame.
I've been working on the collage in my room and I just added a few more pictures today. I think my favorite part of reading magazines is deciding which pictures to rip out and add to the collage. I really like the way it looks right now. I'm probably going to run out of room on the wall soon, however. Here's a picture, which has a glare and also cuts off the very top, so you can't see the picture of Paul Newman shirtless. (There's another one towards the bottom anyway.)

Here are some close-ups of the collage )
Because random lists are fun:
-This weekend I rented Saved, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and The Royal Tenenbaums. I'd seen the last one already, but not for a while. I was kind of in a Wes Anderson mood (I'm looking forward to The Life Aquatic). I think I like Rushmore better, though. Saved was really funny, and Patrick Fugit is completely adorable. Eternal Sunshine was incredible. I was kind of blown away by how emotionally raw it was, beyond the quirkiness of the plot. It had a somewhat happy ending, but it left me kind of drained afterward.
-that Cooking To Hook Up quiz )
-I need to do a practice PSAT or something. I haven't studied at all. Although, as long as I do was well as I did last year, I'll be happy.
-I love randomly making icons. It's pretty much the only reason I have a paid account.
-How gorgeous are these shoes? My goal in life is to to have enough money to justify buying $600 shoes.
-I don't want to go to my lesson tonight. I don't want to audition for district band. I don't want to do marching band anymore. I think I want to quit.
This week seemed endless, despite the break on Wednesday, or perhaps because of it.
I've been working on my assignment for photography, although I'm pretty much done. I'm not sure which of my digitally edited ones I want to turn in. I'd probably tweak and reprint my other prints but I ran out of photo paper. And also, I have no idea when the assignment is due.
