School, Knitting, Beading

Last night was the first meeting of my Business Law class. I have been very worried about it based on what I read in the syllabus. It didn't take me long after class started to realize that I don't need to worry quite as much. The teacher indicated some things in the syllabus that he's not going to enforce. There will not be a presentation, like there has been in my previous classes. Even though, I was doing fairly well with these, I'm relieved. And, he's funny! There is a paper due, which can be turned in early. I really need to try to do that because on June 10 I start an extra class that will last 7 weeks in addition to my regular class. Basically, that means double the schoolwork for me.

I have had a tendency to worry about each class before it starts. Then, at some point, either during the class or when I get my grade, I realize I didn't have much to worry about really. So, I guess I could probably stop worrying. But then I thought maybe I shouldn't stop. Because it seems to be working. I worry about my classes - and I get good grades. :)

Things can't be going too bad because I've been able to get some knitting done and even a small amount of beading. I have managed to get the pink shell to about 4 1/2 inches. At 14 inches, I will get to split for the top part. Maybe I'll get it done in time for Fall. :)

A friend and I decided to do a little bit of beading recently. I made a pink necklace and matching bracelet with the spiral rope stitch. I will try to take a picture of them soon. I still plan to make earrings . . .

I'm glad I could take some time to update this blog this morning, but I really need to be getting ready to go to work. To ALL of my knitting and beading friends, I Miss You!!!!!!

Homework, homework, homework. I'm beginning to wonder if this school thing was a good idea. I certainly hope this is all going to be worth it. I can't get a break. I steal my knitting time, and that's just not enough. Fortunately, I like school. But I feel like I HAVE to do schoolwork EVERY day and that's getting old.

I have four chapters in my text to read in the next week. So, this morning, instead of checking my email while I ate breakfast, I started my reading. Cooper was confused. We have a certain breakfast ritual and I changed it. I have to write a five-year-plan for my life, which is due next time and work on a presentation and paper for the last night. Then, I get to study Business Law. oh goody

After having started and restarted the sleeveless pink pullover several times, I think I'm on track with it now. If I can just keep those open pens away from it! I took time off from it this week to work on a gift item. Now that it is done, I can get back to the pink thing. While I'm not reading and writing. I'm SO looking forward to Panera in the morning. I just hope someone shows up this week.
