Lamest excuse for missing class EVER

But at least you know it has to be true. Because if I was just going to ditch, I’d make up something like, “My great aunt Gertrude got in a sky diving accident and I had to go to her funeral in Finnland,” not, “I couldn’t find a place to park.”I don’t get it. I… Continue reading Lamest excuse for missing class EVER

Pardon the Dust

Alice is helping me revamp the layout of the blog (it's easier than I thought!). We're still working out the kinks, but I like this better than the boring layout I was using before (simply because I don't like the colors in most of the Blogger layouts). I had my thesis review yesterday, so I've… Continue reading Pardon the Dust

Yeah, that's kind of how I'm feeling right now, as I sit in the school library intent on working and not really accomplishing much except checking my email and Facebook seventy billion times for no reason and looking up sock patterns in my Ravelry queue. Dublin was fantastic and relaxing. Can I go back now?… Continue reading Buh.

Calm Before the Storm

I finished editing Life is a Zoo last week, but I still feel that the book is unfinished. I like the flow, but I have two problem points: the exposition at the end of the book is too tell-all confession; there isn't enough peeling back plot layers to discover what has happened. Second, I don't… Continue reading Calm Before the Storm

Listing Things.

1. I haven't been updating because life has been a big bag of "suck" and "fail" for the last few weeks. Basically, all semester, and I haven't been wanting to broadcast my bad mood onto the internet. 2. It's been so bad that I haven't been knitting. Seriously. Haven't touched the pointy sticks since I… Continue reading Listing Things.

Call Me Scarecrow

Has anyone seen my brain? Things have been a teensy bit crazy lately. I've had a ton of homework, and with no real internet access at the house, it's been a little hard to do anything online. I do have studio space at school now, with a great connection, so things have steadied out a… Continue reading Call Me Scarecrow

Please send yarn. And an air freshener.

Spring break starts today. Do you know how I will be spending spring break? Sitting around a dark apartment, or wandering a smelly city in search of something that isn't a bar or a museum. We were going to go to Paris, and then Berlin. We were going to take a week off from being… Continue reading Please send yarn. And an air freshener.
