So Mel's recent post (and the one she linked to) gave me the idea about how to rescue another fall month from the grip of shittiness.
As my celebration of Rocktober, I plan to do one awesome thing every day. Awesome to me, that is.
To catch up, here's a list of all the awesome things I've done so far this month. Well, right now it is blank, but when I get a chance to look at my calendar and remind myself what I did last week, I'll update below.
October 8th - bought a cool new chair for my home office (as well as a cheap new couch, dresser, and pair of bookcases). Better yet, as I drove around town today, to work, to Lakewood for a doctor's appointment, to the beautiful Lakewood post office to mail a friend her birthday present, to the furniture store, and finally back home, I got the chance to listen carefully and repeatedly to the (not so) new Taken by Trees album. I sooo love her voice, and there is a moment on Track 5, about the 2 minute mark, where I had a emotional reaction I still can't quite describe.
October 7th - gave a lecture in a theater, just like famous folks do. Also watched the debate.
October 6th - Not any awesomeness here, but see the details on 10/5 for why that isn't necessarily my fault.
October 5th - There wasn't really any awesomeness today. However, as this day came before my re-dedication to October Awesomeness, I don't think it is fair to hold it against me.
October 4th - Today's awesomeness included meeting up with a new colleague for lunch at Melt.
October 3rd - Today's awesomeness included catching The Veils in-store at Music Saves and then a double feature at the CIA featuring The Go-Getter and Poultrygeist. Meeting and chatting with Lloyd Kaufman put the cherry on top.
October 2nd - Today's awesomeness included meeting and listening to one of my favorite authors (Jonathan Lethem) give a talk at the CIA and then lighting out for home to catch the VP debate.
October 1st - I Voted!
