Studying and Whatnots

I have many pictures I need to post but I'm currently studying at Panera and don't have my camera handy. Mostly, studying is what fills my days lately. Physiology of Exercise takes a large chunk of time - studying, writing papers, doing labs, and studying. I have decided that I don't have to get all A's this semester and should strive for a balanced life and B's.

I have been knitting (in between classes), I completed one mitten and I am working on a Clapotis. Lia sent me some wonderful yarn from Alaska which I will make into some amazing. And Lara gave me a beautiful skein of handspun and hand dyed as a thank you for allowing her to borrow my spinning wheel.

So I haven't been blogging much but I am on Twitter so if you want more regular updates about my life you can follow me there.

Most of my weekend was spent studying for my insanely hard Physiology of Exercise Unit 1 test. But I did find some time to hang out with Angelique who was visiting from New Mexico. When I came to the shop on Thursday it seemed so natural to see Angelique sitting on the sofa knitting. Now I will expect to see her next time I am there but alas, she had to return home on Sunday. Saturday morning was the KIP cowl swap, artfully organizer by Becca. Everyone knitted a cowl, wrapped it up, then we picked numbers and choose. I was so happy to receive Amy's cowl which I had been fallen in love with because it doubles as a headband for my curly locks. In a strange twist of events, Amy choose my cowl, made with Noro in Twist colors. Everyone's cowls were beautiful and I am so grateful to Becca for organizing it.

Dove Self-Esteem Fund

I sent an hour and a half looking at this website. Lots of great information. I worry about about S and her friend's perception of themselves and women, especially when I see the sexy Halloween costumes being marketed to little girls.

Baby Surprise

I made this Baby Surprise Jacket as a sample for the shop.

I feel so old because I had to have a 20-something teach me to use T9 to text on my cellphone. This whole time I have been texting the old way.

Thursdays are my favorite day of the week. I have class from 8-9:50 in the morning then I go work out in the circuit room with my friend, lunch on campus, and then field experience ( we are assigned to do observations at a school.) Then it's the best part - I have no classes on Friday so I have Friday, Saturday and Sunday off. And as a bonus, I get to go hang out at Twist on Thursday night. Life is good on Thursday.

Smoothie King

This morning I was running late so I skipped my regular morning fruit smoothie and it throw my whole day off.

I have a regular morning schedule, I get up at 6:30, put in a load of laundry and unload the dishwasher. Make a cup of tea and a fruit smoothie and read e-mails and blogs for a few minutes. That's my "me" time for the day.
