Yarn Therapy

The crazier my life gets, the more I want to sit on the couch all day and knit. Which of course means I ultimately end up more stressed because I didn't do the things I was supposed to do because all I wanted to do was sit on the couch all day and knit. Gah. 

But I got a new pair of crazy striped socks out of the neurosis so I think it was worth it. 

Aren't those the craziest socks? I absolutely adore them! And yes, I made them mismatched on purpose. 

In the last month, I've made a basic shawl, two pairs of baby socks, 

a pair of socks for me and I'm about 90 percent done with a second shawl. And I don't even wear shawls!! I have no explanation.  

Oh, and I decided that this was the perfect time to teach myself how to crochet. So I did. (Thanks YouTube) So I also have three new dishcloths from trying out new stitches. 

Oh, and a snake. Because reasons. 

In my defense, at least a lot of it was done while on my breaks at work or in the car when FiancĂ© was driving but still. That is a LOT of yarn. 

However, I am feeling much more relaxed now. Whew!

Ten days

Whoa. In ten days the moving truck will be here. In ten days I will be moving out of Washington State for the first time in my life. In ten days I will be starting my journey to Florida and Law School. 

And with only ten days to go, my house finally sold. Oh thank God!!

It's been a whirlwind of crazy in my house the last few weeks but I'm kinda loving it. Except when I'm not. 

But mostly, I can't wait to get there!

On the school front, things are building up. I've finally sent my official transcripts and the Dean's certificate stating the I hadn't cheated, stole or destroyed school property at WSU. Whew. 

I have my school's email set up and other school login stuff. Thanks to that lovely, I can now get free Amazon Prime. Which I'll need once my school finally sends me my book list. Hurry up guys!

We got our first batch of orientation homework last week. I haven't gotten around to starting it yet (moving and all) but it is definitely feeling more real. Cases and case briefs Oh My!

And with the Orientation homework, I finally found out when my Orientation starts. They break all of us 1L's into separate days so some of us start on Monday and others later in the week. I start on Thursday the 21st! I guess in a way, I get a longer summer but I also have less time between orientation and the first day of classes. Since that is when we get our first reading assignments, I'm counting it as a negative. 

I have a free day today so I think I'm off to start my orientation videos! Whooo

Getting my life back ...

... At least until I start law school. 

Yesterday was my last day at my part time job. Having only my 40 hour a week job is bliss. I worked from 6 to 2:30 today and ... Then ... I went home. How Bizarre.

 I'm dedicating today to pure laziness but tomorrow I'm going to start the house hunting, packing, getting rid of stuff portion of moving. 
I have three boxes packed and three weeks to finish the rest. I can do it!! 

Heck, I have to do it. 

Bring it on ... Tomorrow.
