Weather today: 72 and sunny! Long sleeves (I just took off my jacket for the pic).
Countdown to Fall Break.... Two days.
Amount of homework this week: Hellish.
Disappointment of the day: Maura possibly not coming to pancake night. I needed some bestie time. *sigh*
Looking forward to: Pancake Night!
Having survived (barely?) the Celebration of Knowledge (aka, Exam of Death), I picked up a handout on my way out of Dr. Byrne's class Monday morning. On the handout: our assignments for this week. 40 pgs. reading due the next day. 100 pages of reading and a 3-page paper due Thursday. In Microeconomics, Dr. Vilikova reminded us to be working on the assignment due Saturday called Commanding Heights. Sounded easy enough. "Watch three videos, answer 5 questions." Not half so simple. Each video is 2 hours long and the five questions are supposed to be answered with 2-page essays. Needless to say, I haven't slept much. I am, however, knitting while I watch these videos on Microeconomics. I truly love economics. It's so logical!
I finished the garter and the red scarf. Now I've cast on for the fun of it! I have to start Christmas gifts soon, but a few inches into these fingerless mittens and I just don't feel like they'd do for my sister, so I'll keep them for me. I want to give Melanie some mittens with mohair lace on them. Robert will be getting a hardcore hat, hopefully made of unique hand-died. We'll see. Mom? Well, she's incredibly hard to shop for. She always has everything she needs! And she's forever complaining about what clothes make her feel all hot and she's changing clothes a lot. I wanted to get her a tea pot, but she pretty much only drinks iced tea and coffee... Arg! Daddy's pretty easy. He loves to shop, so I get him gift cards. Usually.
Fun thing I did this week: make a legit list of requirements for my future husband! Lots of women have these lists. I had one started, but Sunday my roomie and a friend and I were doing homework at Cafe Coco for nearly 3 hours and we got bored. So I pulled up my Long-Term To Do Lists folder on the comp and found my incomplete list. I won't post it here, but we'll be walking some other girls through this fun and hilarious process tonight at Pancake Night!
So, off I go to get on that 100 pages of reading and writing those dangblasted papers.
