Back from the dead! Only, you know, not dead.
Stuff has happened since I last posted an entry here. Lots of stuff.
I'm now an Event Coordinator for the biggest craft store chain in the country. It's a busy job and something entirely new to me, so I'm not sure I'd say I'm actually settled in yet, but I'm getting there. While I may feel like I'm lost most of the time, everyone else seems to think I'm doing a fabulous job. Either way, I like it. I'm also still teaching knitting, and as of the end of this month, taking over the OneStroke classes. Which should be interesting, since I know squat about OneStroke.
School is going well, although that may change if I don't get started on the two research papers that are due in May. I think I'm looking at roughly another two years at the U, but I won't know for sure until I see an advisor.
Little Sister is getting bad grades again, and no matter how much I fight with our mother, I can't get her to impose any kind of punishment on the kid. I'm on the verge of beating my head against the wall. Or maybe somebody else's head...
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion may be the most addictive game ever.
Speaking of games, big Halo news! No, they haven't announced Halo 3 yet. First, Volume 2 of the soundtrack comes out on the 25th! click here to hear ten seconds of the most beautiful, haunting, stirring music ever to fall on human ears.
Second, the Halo Graphic Novel is due in stores in July. Yes! Halo Graphic Novel! Squeee! Some of it looks, well, lame, but for the most part it looks awesome.
Third, Eric Nylund is putting out another Halo novel, tentatively titled Ghosts of Coral. I'm sure it will be as delicious as Halo and Halo: First Strike.
And, of course, there's the movie. I'm hopeful.
And of course, let's not forget knitting. I get a lot less knitting done on my new schedule, which makes me sad. Right now, I've got a few things on the needles: the neverending scarf, MaryElla, and some wire-and-bead bracelets knit on sharpened chopsticks. The bracelets are a request from a coworker, who runs a clothing and accessories shop on the side. She wants to sell the bracelets on consignment!
