So far, so good.

I am being productive today. See? I am all adult-like.

I am pretty happy and content today. This past work week was very long and stressful, so I’m glad it’s over with now. And I have Monday off, so hooray!

So far today I have:

Gotten an oil change and my tires checked (everything is good and normal, apparently).
Bought groceries (just a few necessities, nothing big).
Filled my tank up with gas.
Got cash and quarters.

I still need to do some cleaning in my apartment and also clean out my car. My car has been needing it for a LONG time (I think it’s been at least ten months since the last time I cleaned it out) and my apartment isn’t horrible, but definitely needs some cleaning (mostly tidying, doing dishes, and taking trash out).

Tomorrow I am driving up north to the Great Lakes Fiber Festival up in NE Ohio! 😀 There shall be yarn! And sheep! And unspun wool! And knitters! And it will be glorious. n.n I am very excited. I’m meeting some Ravelers there too, so that will be fun! It’s just for the day, once I’m exhausted and have bought all the yarn I can afford I shall drive back home (unless by some miracle I can make plans with some awesome folks in Cleveland, but I am not getting my hopes up because they have such busy schedules and I haven’t seen them in a few years).

Monday I think I am going to bake oatmeal butterscotch cookies, and do laundry. That’s the entirety of my plans. 😀 And there shall also be knitting! Because knitting, what is life without knitting.

I think I shall have a couple slices of pizza before I get started on the rest of the stuff I need to do today.

Breaking Up

I woke up an hour ago but I have almost no clean clothing so I'm not showering until my laundry is done.

This past week has been very long and stressful.

Yesterday I broke up with the boyfriend. It was initiated by me, for various reasons but the main one was I didn’t feel for him the way I should have, and it wasn’t fair to him to continue on like that.

I watched Tangled twice yesterday and might watch it again today, I desperately need the gooey happy Disney right now (and hey, the songs are pretty awesome too).

Yep. Just waiting for my laundry so I can take a shower. An exciting day, this. *Sigh*

Lookit mah snitch!

So I’m part of this thing called the Harry Potter House Cup on Ravelry, where you pretend to be a Hogwarts student and turn in knitting projects for classes and such. And they also have Quidditch, where everyone can knit a small project to score Quaffle points, and this is the one for the first match. So in essence, I knit a snitch and I get us some points, hooray!

… Yeah I’m a nerd. If anyone doubted that, where the heck have you been? XD

I swear my hair doesn't do the 70s poofy thing during the day, just at night.

Almost forgot, but I didn’t. Was too busy knitting all night to post earlier. Time for bed now, though!

I'm tired, it was a long day.

So today I was moved to a different desk at work. It definitely disrupted things a bit, but I prefer my new place because it’s not in the middle of everything where everyone can see what I’m doing all the time. I really didn’t like my old desk. This one has slightly less room, but it also feels cozier to me. So that is good.

I tried out for Cincinnati Opera Idol last Saturday, and today they posted the semi-finalists, and I was not on the list. On the one hand, that kinda sucks, but on the other, it’s a minor thing. I still have an awesome voice, a lot of talent and performing ability. That doesn’t magically go away just because I don’t win a competition.

It’s so nice to be in a place where I don’t act like the world is ending when an audition doesn’t go my way. It’s nice to feel like I’ve matured enough that I can feel disappointed for a bit and then shrug my shoulders and go “eh, there will be other chances” because there will, and I know it. ❤

This is a thing! Which I am knitting!

What it is, though, is a secret. X3

You can guess at the color, but I can’t show what it is because it’s a secret swap I’m doing and I don’t want to ruin the surprise. ;D

GUYS TOMORROW THEY POST THE SEMI-FINALISTS FOR OPERA IDOL.
