Okay, I'm a SLACKER

1.Went to the DIA with Emoline/Bianka. 'Twas funnerfull, even if we did almost get locked in.
3.Organized (for the most part) my yarn.
This is the "Before" picture

Yeah, I know my room's a total mess. It's not always like that though.
And this is the "After" picture.3.I knit. However, I can't show you most of it. You'll just have to trust that I finished quite a bit of relatively complicated knitting.
4.I dyed.
It's some more of the KnitPicks Bare Sock Yarn that I got for Christmas. The colours are pretty spectacular, if I do say so myself.
5.I shopped with my friends. We never go shopping together, so it was funnerful. Makena's crazieness is becoming more and more apparent though.
6.I borrowed a ball winder and swift. My former art teacher's wife weaves, and he lent me it. This is what prompted the organizing spree.
7.Heard about Grey's Anatomy coming back on TONIGHT!!! Squeeeeeee! This is way more exciting than any tv show should be. I've kinda started to stop caring about tv since the writers have been on strike for what seems like forever. It's an interesting feeling.
8.Written most of this list.

Have a FANTABULOUS leap day everyone! Be sure to fit a few leaps in!

Last night, I had to figure out my schedule for next year. It was...well, let's just say that there were an excessive amount of tears involved. The counselors (and Grandholm, for chrissakes) feel the need to constantly remind me that I will die if I don't take a bizgillion math and science classes. I guess that I just don't see the point of taking classes if I don't enjoy them and don't want to go into that field. I also realized that my school requires a full 11 credits more than the state does for graduation, which sucks. If I lived somewhere else, I could graduate a full year and a half earlier than I can now.
Yeah, the school counsel ours sometimes make me really, really mad.
At least they let me switch math classes without too much fuss.
I really should be writing or studying french or studying science or something right now.

I have been tagged by Kaya. I have never been tagged before, so this should be exciting or something.
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.

The Seven Facts about Samantha/Froomla
1.I'm writing a new story. It's very stream-of-concisousnes. I will write after I blog.
2.I have no idea what I want to do if I grow up. It will hopefully involve writing and designing knitwear and maybe teaching.
3.I really, really hate it when people comment on my weight.
4.I am a really clumsy person. This is how I burn my fingers and scrape my legs all the time.
5.I just got my hair cut. I like it this way.

No school, and Yarn Harlot

The Yarn Harlot is coming to meeee! Ann Arbor Library, April 11, 7:00...I am ridiculously excited about this. The other pretty cool thing; I will be able to drive there too!!!! Well, I'll have to have my mom or dad in the car, but still.
We have no school....'tis a PSD day. The teachers get to spend all day making up tests and going to meetings and stuff like that. It pretty much means that we get to do whatever we want today...and the next nine days, because Michigan has this fabulous thing called Mid-Winter break. We have mid-winter break because winter in Michigan sometimes feels like you and your toes never really thaw out, so everyone goes to Florida for a week in February. Except if you're me, your Dad has firefighting classes every night, and your Mom is sick, so there's no way you get to go much of anywhere. And apparently my brother is getting sick too.
At least I have new prettiful socks on the needles to brighten my day.
They're some Knit Picks bare that I dyed weekend before last. The pattern is MataHari by Craftoholic. They shall be knee socks if I can pretend to have an attention span. and yes, I do realize that the yarn is a little busy for the pattern, but oh well...
Bye byes!

Ummm. well...yeah

This post shall be in bullet points, because my brain won't function any other way.

  • Quizbowl meet last night. Lost two games. Had one moderater who didn't know what she was doing.
  • Debate states were on Saturday. Bala won (no surprise there). And it has been decided that "Boehme" shall be the worst insult that one could give to a debater. I totally messed up my second speech.
  • Sciencel. I'm failing Earth Science. Earth Science is the lowest science offered by my Hi!School. It's like failing General Math.
  • Geometry. I was failing Honors Geometry, so I switched to regular. And I'm doing fine now.
  • French 2. Not doing amazingly, but I'm okay.
  • Church. There's some stuff going on at my church that's a little messed up, so my mom and I will be going to a new church on Sunday. Not sure where yet, but...yeah...somewhere old and pretty, since those are my requirements for churches.
  • I finished my second pair of socks on Sunday night.
  • and I don't have a picture. Yet.
  • I've read like three books
  • But I've been so stressy that I can barely remember them.
  • But Nineteen Minutes was one of them. It's amazing. You must read it.
  • And The Knitter's Book of Yarn. 'twas okay.
  • And Style and Fashion design. Or something like that. It was interesting. I want to be Ysolda if I grow up.
  • I'm going to work on my geometry homework now.

I'm tired.
Eugh. I've had a perpetual load of homework that I never seem to finish, and I should be researching for debate right now.
But all I want to do is take a nap.
This is a pathetic post, but I just wanted to tell everyone that I'm still alive.
