School, Christmas Presents, Plays, and More. Oh boy.

Having just finished reading The Kite Runner I now must make a website for it, and that is sucking out any desire to do school work completely, yet of course this must be done. Joy~ /sarcasm/ On top of that, I'm still working on my research project for the stock market (not doing so well in the game simulation, I am not a good investor) and I have more than one essay to write every day.

Today I also made a list of christmas presents, realizing that I had 3 months to get what I need to get and wrap it all. That briefly terrified me, but now I'm better because I know what I'm doing. Lists make everything better, I <3 lists.

Now onto more pressing means. I am in a play called Oliver, based off the book Oliver Twist by Mark Twain. I was originally just a small part, Mrs. Bedwin, a good role after playing Mushnik in Little Shop of Horrors over the summer. Now I find myself thrust into the role of Assistant Director, which entails blocking scenes with the help of Mr. C and the other Assistant Director (I think her name is Anna). Now to add even more to the drama of this play (unintentional pun on drama and plays) I am using Oliver as a "final project" in order to graduate in January. Oh isn't this all fun. /sigh/

Now I also have my best friends birthday looming in the near future, which means I need to get cranking on her present. I'm cross stitching her a little 'K' with a Faerie leaning over the top of it. It's rather simple but it's pretty. So now I have approximately 3 weeks to get this done, framed, and wrapped. Oh boy. Let's hope I can pull it off. e.x

On top of all this, I have NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) coming in November, and that means getting my butt in gear to plot out my new novel. And during that, I still have to write a short story to send in to a scholarship competition.

So to put it all simply, my life got hectic and allll my HAED stitching has been put on hold. /sigh/ Life dealt me a hand that certainly isn't what I expected it to be. Oh well, it'll all be worth it in the end~

I'm going back to building the website now.

School; Why Art Thou So Hard?

So, I officially feel like I got run over by a bus a couple hundred times. School is killing me, and sucking the inspiration to do anything right out. Senior year = not fun at all. I can hardly find time to stitch now and I really wanted to get a page finish on Holly soon. I pulled out Stolen though, in hopes that the simpleness of it would help me relax... yeah... that didn't work so well. I was stuck remembering "oh yeah, I screwed up really bad on this pattern. Fail." and thus I spent my evening trying to fix it. -.-

Other than that now, I'm behind in practically everything for school. Blarg, death to school. I think the only thing I'm not behind in is Government and Econ, and that's because I forced myself to get my butt into gear. I guess it's time for me to do that on the other five classes I'm taking too. /sigh/

Ah well, here's to a semester of hellish classes and high school drama via online schooling. Oh boy my work is cut out for me...

Ta-Ta for now~

Holly Angel and Research Projects

Hey everyone! What do ya know, I finally pulled Miss Holly Angel out and worked on her last night. Got quite far on her, at least in my opinion. I have the rest of the top row and I'm half way done with the page, but I started going down the column as well because it was just biiiiggg blocks of color. xD

On another note, I'm in Economics this year, and the first thing I have assigned is a research project. On the Stock Market. The stock market, of all things. TT_TT So that's going to be seriously eating up my time. /sigh/ Not to mention I'm auditioning for Oliver as my "final project" for senior year. Oh boy. Life is going to be hectic this semester.

At least I'll get some time to stitch tonight and this weekend. ^_^ Yay for house sitting!

Gettin' Started

Howdy everyone~
So, I have just started senior year, and it's a little bit overwhelming. With what I'm doing, I'm going to finish in one semester, and then it's off to college for me. Ain't that exciting? Yeah, that's what I thought too. Haha.

Soo, now I speak of my cross stitch projects.
I finally picked Blue Rose back up, it was hard though because of all confetti I knew that was coming. But I love how she stitches up, so I gave in and just worked on her. Not to mention I needed to work on her because she's one of my stitch-a-longs.
Then I worked a bit on SK Ice Wind. She's my other SAL, and I adore the pattern. I almost have two rows done on her, because I work in 400 block squares. Dunno why, just find it easier I guess. Hehe.

Here's pics~
Blue Rose is first, and then there's Ice Wind beneath it.

Well, I'm off to finish school for today. Then hopefully I'll get to stitch a bit. If not, well~ then I'll just work on my stories. Hehe.
