Solace

I'm a baby when I'm sick. I'm an even bigger baby when I'm away from home. Maybe it's because I'm a spoiled only child, but all I want to do is curl up in my own bed (which is a water bed, extra special), under my blankets with my pillow (because no matter how long… Continue reading Solace

Shake, Rattle and Roll (or not)

Ohio gets several tornadoes per year (about 16), and many, many violent thunderstorms. From the time I was little, I usually slept through them. It takes a pretty bad storm to wake me up. I've slept straight through a tornado watch in which my mom was gathering everything to go down to the basement to… Continue reading Shake, Rattle and Roll (or not)

Ciao, Bellas.

I didn't fall off the face of the earth. I just moved to the other side of it. I had to take a few days and acclimated. Between jet lag, insomnia, a cold, and then general whirl wind of figuring what was needed immediately for the apartment, what could wait, what fees still needed paid… Continue reading Ciao, Bellas.

The Last Forty-Eight Hours

They say that the first 48 hours are the most important part of an investigation. When one is preparing to leave the country, however, often it's the reverse. The last 48 hours in one location are often a flurry of packing, ticket double checking, making sure all electronics are off and unplugged, catching up on… Continue reading The Last Forty-Eight Hours

In Control?

So Alice and I met with the representative from the Italian Consulate this morning, sighed our paperwork, and then mailed everything out for approval by the consulate (whose nearest office is in Detroit). I get really nervous when I don't know exactly where my passport is, and I have a very good reason. When I… Continue reading In Control?

Graduated

Well, it's official. I'm graduated, and have joined the ranks of the working adult (*snort*). The day before the ceremony, my graduation present to myself (ordered a couple of months ago) arrived in the mail. You can veiw him here (You may need a Den of Angels account in order to see the thread). I… Continue reading Graduated

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.
