Weekend at home

I managed to finally see my niece! It has been almost two months, which is far too long when they are so little. We had fun dancing and running around the house. I also went to the Miles Memorial League rummage sale on Friday and Saturday. I scored so many deals and found a ton of amazing old books! There was also a going away party for Alice on Saturday night. It was a surprise party! I was in charge of getting her to the party, which is kind of nerve wracking since I am such a horrible liar. She was surprised though! All in all it was a really good weekend.

My new street

If you remember the picture of my last street, Grant Street, then you can see what an improvement this one is. It is really pretty right now with the leaves changing and falling on the ground! Plus there is no disgusting old furniture on the sidewalks or syringes. We did have a drunk guy, who was covered in vomit, come onto our porch who I politely asked to leave through one of our three windows that look out directly onto the porch. He did.

What I do at work

Tell my coworker to take pictures of me standing in the corner of our office. That's Maine style, specifically due to the rain boots from Reny's. They have lobsters on them!

So much has been going on in the past few weeks/months. I tried out for the Maine Roller Derby League and made it! I've been practicing with them since early September. It is really such a fantastic experience. I'm a horrible skater, but the more I do it, the better I get. I'll be very glad when my semester is over, since one of our practice nights coincides with the time of one of my classes. It's kind of hard to tell the professor that I've got to go do something else when he considers our class to be vital. Plus, roller derby isn't as easy a sport to grasp as basketball. I feel like if I was on the USM basketball team or field hockey team he would be much more supportive.
The pictures are from the Pumpkin Festival in Damariscotta over Columbus Day weekend. There were pumpkin boat races in the river! It's so much fun and there were so many delicious pumpkin food items for sale. I had pumpkin pie soda, which absolutely fantastic. My roommate and I had to fight kids to be able to have our picture taken in that thing. Then I managed to bump my shoulder really hard on the frame and that is when I concluded it was not built for big people.
