Rohlf Ball is the devil

My right wrist is hurting because in gym we played rohlf ball which is a dumb game similar to volleyball that you play with a kick ball. I tried to serve it and injured my wrist (because you really shouldn’t be trying to serve a kick ball anyway!). The beginning of gym wasn’t bad though. We did 6 laps (1.5 miles) walking the curved part of the track and running the straight parts.

I got yet another book in the mail today. It is Self Magazine’s 15 Minutes to a Better You. I love Self Magazine and my favorite part is the 15 minutes section so this book is perfect for me. It has little things that help you out. My favorite part is the fitness section. It has little workouts and such. I think I need to work on my upper-body strength. I want to have strong arms so I won’t be a total weakling.

I had layout for Newspaper tonight. I got my pages mostly done. I just have to put a little blurb about the cover pictures on the Table of Contents page and place a picture and a story on another page. Also there was this ad listed in our Ad Budget but it was called the name of a staff member. I don’t even know what the ad is or what it’s supposed to me. It just says her name there. It doesn’t make sense to me. Anyways, I’m rambling. the point is I am pretty much ready to print my pages except for minor little details and the people at layout tonight seemed to have their shit together. Hopefully the other people will be ready.

School is almost out. Sweet, sweet relief.


Very busy day

I went to the Nelson Atkins museum of art, Eden’s Alley and a yarn store I had never been to before!

Because of all this and going to work afterwards I am incredibly tired right now.

But here’s a taste of what’s to come:

Boo. I hate blurry pictures.


TKGA

I’ve been knitting for 4 years or so. I know it’s ambitious, but I think I am going to try the Masters Program offered by The Knitters Guild Association. I need a project that I would find fun and challenging.

I started knitting squares for an afghan from Knitty Gritty. I have yet to set up my lightbox though so I cannot show you the one I have completed. It has a simple rope cable pattern. I am now working on the Braid Panel square.

I feel like an isolated knitter. I need to find some knitters nearby. I read about a group that meets at Java Internet Cafe today on the Lionbrand website. It meets while I’m at school though. Maybe I could go in the summer.


I love you…here’s some socks

I’m almost done with my socks for my boyfriend. Here’s some pictures. The second one needs to be bound off, but I haven’t done that because I don’t have a tapestry needle for a sewn-bindoff.

These are toe up socks made with Lionbrand’s Wool Ease. They were easy and fast. They are my first pair of finished socks!


Mittens in progress

I’m knitting some mittens. My main use for them besides outside will be for the jlab, because it is so cold. My fingers are chilled to the bone and it’s only the beginning of October.

Pictures of progress? Well sure! I’ll show you!

I’m working on the second mitten now. I will do the thumb and opening for a flip top on both after I finish the main body of the second sock. I just finished the cuff and have 9 rows to go until the thumb gusset starts. It’s a really quick knit, because there are only 45 stitches to the round. Gotta love it!

Speaking of the jlab, look at the reflector girls hanging out in it right now!

Is it just me…

or is there alot of patronizing going on lately? I hate being told I’m mature, responsible and can handle a heavier work load while at the same time I’m patronized by superiors.

I’d take things adults said alot more seriously if they’d refrain from drilling the same school rules in my head (especially the rules I don’t agree with totally). Sometimes I feel like a criminal. Aren’t I innocent until proven guilty?

It get’s annoying, no? I sure do appreciate the teachers who treat me like a young adult and not a child. Kudos to them.
