Progress!

School assignments this week:
  • 3 mini-essays
  • for each mini-essay topic, respond to two other students (6 responses total)
  • quiz (10 questions T/F)

Due date: Saturday

Progress 1:
I find that the mini-essays are the hardest and I don't like to respond to the other students until I know what I'm talking about. I finally got my mini-essays done and one of the responses. I figure that gives me tomorrow to finish the responses and study for the quiz. If I take the quiz on Friday, then after taking my cat to the vet Saturday morning, I spend as much time as I want at knit group without feeling guilty! (It is hard for me to spend as much time as I want with KWA when school is in session, which is terrible, as it is such a wonderful stress outlet.)

Progress 2:
Boo is improving. She's still hyper, but the meds helped (and she's done with them, yeah!) and the area around her sutures isn't swollen to the size of large marble any more.

Progress 3:
I've finished the second side of the green fish. Oliver is on hold until I have a night without homework, as he requires more concentration than the fish and I prefer to be able 'a part' in it's entirety in a sitting (i.e., finish an arm or piece leg in one session). I'm still fairly new to knitting, that putting down one of those pieces midstream for more than day will guarantee that it'll have to be frogged in its entirety, as I inevitably screw up in the oddest ways imaginable.

Last Sunday, some girls from knit group and I went to see Brokeback Mountain. It was really good. Collapse )
In short, I'd love to see the movie again, I just don't know when I'll have the time or money.

Interesting: LJ doesn't recognize the word "dialogue?" It's in my dictionary.
