Back to School

The first week of class is over. I like most of my classes, but I’ve already switched one of my required courses for another professor. I feel bad, because my little sister (sorority) was in that class so I was going to take it with her, but the professor is very vague about what he wants, and I want a class that I can get an “A” in.

Shakespeare looks like it will be good, although we’re reading some pretty obscure plays it makes me happy because then I can make obscure Shakespeare references. We have a twelve page research paper, so that will give me the opportunity to find out how much i like researching Shakespeare.

In other, really exciting news, it snowed here on Wednesday, and it’s snowing now too! In Atlanta! And up until Wednesday, I’d never really seen snow. I mean, it flurried once at home when I was four, and I have a picture of me at my grandparents at the whopping ages of 9 mos in the snow, but that’s about it. So this is very exciting!

Not much knitting, having scoped out any classes where I can get away with it yet, though I plan on doing some this weekend :D

London Calling (Again!)

I’m going back to London this summer; hopefully to study Shakespeare! I got accepted into three-week program with the University of Westminster through the CEA (Cultural Exchange Abroad). I’m ridiculously excited!

I have been knitting a bit, but my Newsboy Cap has not been sewn up yet. I knit a headband for one of my best friends who is in the Peace Corps in Kazakhstan, but I forgot to take a picture of it before I sent it off. It was for her birthday, which was Sunday, but she probably won’t get it for three weeks, :(

I’m doing NaNoWriMo, which is going well, but may get harder over the next two weeks in which I have a test, two papers, initiation, lit mag and heaven knows what else to do! I’ve also been spending too much time on the Big Issues Debate Board on Ravelry!

Our knitting club has yet to talk to Why Knot Knit yet, because my poor friend who has been going to take me keeps having rather awful stuff happen to her, so hopefully we’ll go later this week.

Anyway, homework to do. Remember when mid-terms were supposed to be confined to the MIDDLE of the TERM? They lie….

Tangles

First off, this is hilarious. Oh the amazing things that you find when you click random page on Wikipedia.

So, last night went well. Amazing time with the other Campus Crusaders at Tech, GA State, Kennesaw and others. And lots of work on teh Sock. One thing to keep in mind: There are several things that should never be stored within a foot radius of knitting. Ipods with headphones and camera cases with straps. They all decide that they want to be close personal friends and they get very very tangled.

Today I was supposed to be doing volunteer work, but it was raining lots earlier so things got called off :( . More knitting time. Most of my friends are going camping this weekend, but that’s not my thing. I’m going dancing at Agnes Scott instead, and there will be swing dancing! Yay!

Before I disappear for today, I’d like to sing the praises of these little babies. Lime and Violet talked about them in September and Mom and I ordered two sets after I got her addicted to the Cult of L&V at Christmas. They work fantastically to keep you from pulling out an entire needle’s worth of stitches accidentally. I refer to them as my doodads, and when I’ve misplaced it you will often here me muttering: “Doodad, oh Doodad, where did you go???”

I’m going to go listen to L&V and knit. I am going to turn that heel today!!
