Happy Birthday, G. K. Chesterton!

Yes, it’s the great man’s birthday. I believe that he would be.. 136?

I’m so changeable

I made my blog public again. 😛 Yes, I’m fickle. Oh well.
In related news, I’M GOING TO SEE THE EXTENDED EDITIONS OF THE LORD OF THE RINGS IN THEATERS THIS JUNE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s in select theaters across the US, I believe, and I ABSOLUTELY. CANNOT. WAIT. Despite the fact that it’s about $10.50 a student. My sister, Elven Maiden, and I are probably going to put some items in an ArtFire shop (I’ll be contributing hand-knitted items and she’ll be contributing jewelry) and hopefully earn some money that way. I’ll be certain to let you all know 🙂


Daybook for May

 Date… Monday, May 16

Starting time… 10:00 AM

Mood… relaxed.

Outside my window… lovely, bright and sunny.

I’m thinking… about how all I have left of my classes are an oral exam and a online exam! 😀

I’m reading… The Eustace Diamonds by Anthony Trollope.

I’m listening to… Beauty and the Beast (from the soundtrack).

I’m wearing… Pajamas. 😛
Yesterday, I… hung out in my room and knitted/read for a nice chunk of afternoon. And played games with my siblings, cousin, and my sibling’s friends across the street in the evening outside.

I’m excited for… going to Christendom!

I’m sad because… Christendom is almost seven weeks away.

I’m hungry for… not hungry.

The song stuck inside my head is… well, I don’t really have one that’s too bad, but I must say “The Goodman” by Kate Rusby is pretty catchy and fun.

I want… to shop a bit.

I love… handspun socks, or at least knitting them. Fun!

I loathe… vacuuming.

This week, my goal is… to study hard and do well on all the exams. All two of them. 😛


Breaking the silence!

I’m back!

Where was I, you ask? Well, I was here… just not posting.

What’s up, you ask?

1. The day after Palm Sunday, my mother called the Christendom office and I was officially registered and paid to go to the Experience Christendom Summer Program, the third session (July 2-9). WOO HOO!!!!!! Check out this link for more details on what I’ll be doing. I am unbelievably excited. Oh, and this will be my first time on a plane in almost 10 years, and my first time ever alone on a plane.

2. In an extremely unpleasant procedure on Wednesday, involving my first actual surgery, I had four temporary screws placed in my jawbone and part of my gums lasered down. It doesn’t hurt, really, but the screws rub against the inside of my mouth when I smile or laugh and that does hurt… bleah. I am supposed to keep to a mushy diet until next Wednesday, too.

3. I finished spinning up about four ounces of Shetland wool into sock yarn and cast on for my first toe-up, two-at-a-time socks. It’s kind of fun. They go pretty fast too, because the yarn is thicker than my normal sock yarn. Okay, maybe this isn’t big news like the other two…
