Bad Bad Student

I'm sorry I haven't posted in forever. I had an upheaval that culminated in me resigning from my job effective at the end of this school year. I just haven't had time to deal with anything else. I have since left the black place that my brain had gone to and am doing better. I got my kit mailed off on Wednesday so hopefully my swap partner will receive it soon.

My Awesome Spoiler

When I arrived home from class yesterday I had the most wonderful package waiting for me. It was my sock kit sent via owl from Gryffindor's Lily Durmstrang. She is the most awesomest spoiler ever. The kit contained a beautiful hank of "Rowena" from Tempted, a colorway she had designed just for me!!!! A chocolate frog, who has already met his demise, a new addi turbo needle, a nail file with yarn on it, a wand cozy, beautiful stitch markers, a great bag, two patterns, a mini sock blocker key chain, a snap together model of Hogwarts, and a time turner. I'll have pictures soon. My camera has died, but I'm getting a new one today after class. If I forgot anything it is just because there was so much cool stuff.

My Lack of Homework

I'm sorry, but I just haven't been able to complete my homework this week. I'm preparing for a pretty big public event at work, and just have not had time to get anything else done as I only have internet access at work. After next week my life should slow down a little bit.
