March daybook

 Date… Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Starting time… 5:37 PM

Mood… happy.

Outside my window… the sun’s last hurrah before it darkens.

I’m thinking… about the fact that I’m going to Austin, TX tomorrow, for the first time; and not even with my parents!

I’m reading… nothing at the moment *myriad cries of shock are heard* but I shall soon remedy that, I suppose.

I’m listening to… Battle of Waterloo by Old Blind Dogs.

I’m wearing… the black denim skirt. Again. Last time, so far, is the only time I haven’t worn it, I believe.
Yesterday, I… sent in my third essay for Great Books. And sewed the
buttons onto my new February Lady sweater, which looks awesome. Pics coming soon.

I’m excited for… going to Austin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m sad because… it’s not tomorrow yet 😦

I’m hungry for… nothing really.

The song stuck inside my head is… Need You Now by Lady Antebellum (which isn’t exactly inappropriate or anything, but I don’t really feel like I can recommend it…)

I want… it to be tomorrow!

I love… the fact my sweet sixteen is just a tad over three months away.

I loathe… waiting.

This week, my goal is… to do well on the National Latin Exam I’m taking tomorrow.


february daybook

 Date… Saturday, February 6

Starting time… 9:48 AM


Outside my window… sun upon the snow.

I’m thinking… about the aforementioned activity.

I’m reading… Middlemarch by George Eliot. A delightful book, and wonderfully long.

I’m listening to… The Burrian by Lau.

I’m wearing… AT LAST! I’m not wearing the black denim skirt. I’m wearing my OTHER denim skirt! 😛

Yesterday, I… got out a pair of mittens I cast on nearly two years ago and started working on them again.

I’m excited for… the aforementioned activity, if it actually happens…

I’m sad because… of the stupid ice. I haven’t left the house since Sunday. Well, I’ve gone outside, but you know what I mean.

I’m hungry for… sausage.

The song stuck inside my head is… The Lowlands of Holland by Old Blind Dogs (good grief, them again?!)

I want… to see my friends.

I love… my February Lady sweater! Squooshy.

I loathe… cold toes.

This week, my goal is… to… I dunno. I’ll figure it out.


january daybook

 Date… Tuesday, January 18

Starting time… 10:32 PM

Mood… kind of frustrated.

Outside my window… a moon that will be full tomorrow night.

I’m thinking… about an event I need a ride for this Saturday.

I’m reading… Dracula by Bram Stoker. (Yes, that Dracula.)

I’m listening to… Down by the Sally Gardens by Clannad. A very lovely, sad song. The lyrics were written by W. B. Yeats, the famous Irish poet.

I’m wearing… Guess what? That black denim skirt I always wear during daybooks! I swear I don’t do it on purpose!

Yesterday, I… had piano lessons and began reading the book of Job in the Bible.

I’m excited for… the previously mentioned event that I want to go to… but I may not be able to go to… sigh.

I’m sad because… I have lots of schoolwork.

I’m hungry for… hot tea!

The song stuck inside my head is… A Man’s a Man for A’ That – Old Blind Dogs (yes, again!)

I want… to see my friends.

I love… peace and quiet.

I loathe… the fact that there is no English Country Dancing for weeks.

This week, my goal is… to get all my schoolwork done, including my Latin…
