Lifestyle, Months in Retrospect

October in Retrospect

*blinks furiously at the passing of time* I just wrote September in Retrospect. How did this happen.

For all of the things I wanted to do this month (from carving pumpkins to getting started on my Christmas shopping to surpassing 200 blog followers), October was so not productive. But that’s okay! It was still a mostly great month.

  • Went to a kids’ Halloween party
  • Saw Queens of the Stone Age and Royal Blood live

5 Murder Mysteries to Spookify Your Halloween

It’s October, and I haven’t posted anything about Halloween! It has always been my favorite holiday. I love dressing up, eating candy, and all of the decorations!

Inspired by Rachel’s post about the murder of JonBenét, here are five interesting murder mysteries that I’ve found on Wikipedia recently. (One thing turns into another, you know, and then you’re down a rabbit hole of weird shit on the world’s free encyclopedia.) I have listed content warnings and given a brief summary for each.
