Little Bitty Knitty

Random Wednesday:

I started Weight Watchers two weeks ago, and I've lost 4.8 pounds!

I have this big fancy event on Saturday, and I'm stressing about my hair.

I haven't knitted. It's stressful.

I appealed UCLA and I might hear in a week or two. That's stressful.

Overall...I am stressed.

Not much knitting going on, at all. I've been super busy, and now I'm sick, and I decided to appeal my rejection from UCLA so I had to get all these rec letters and such together...I'm burnt out. I've got rehearsals for this StupidPlayIDon'tWantToBeIn every day for hours, I have this big fancy stressful event next weekened, and I still have to pretend to care about school.

So tired.

Pattern: Amelia Earhart Aviator Cap
Yarn: 1 and a half skeins of Debbie Bliss Merino Aran
Needles: US8

I loved this pattern! It took me only...hmm, exactly a week. Started it last Tuesday, finished it yesterday.

(Momentary distraction: WHAT THE HELL? Mandisa got sent home? Get fucking Pickler OFF MY TV SCREEN!)

Anyway! Love the pattern. Super cute. Definitely taught me useful skills (short rows). Plan to make more in a variety of colors. This is the item of knitting I'm most proud of. My first completed hat! I think it's fantastic. No, I have no humility. I rock.

So, an update in Tay's Non Knitting World.

In the past week, I have been rejected from UC Berkeley, USC, and my first choice, Northwestern. Those get added to my previous rejection list of, well, one (UCLA). Oddly enough, unfortunately enough, those are my Top Four schools. Sooo...I'm screwed. Well, not really.

I applied to University of Washington on a whim. Knew nothing about the school, had no actual desire to go there. I got my acceptance in February, didn't really care. Never planned on going there. But now...it might be where I end up. The more I research it, the more people tell me "That's the perfect school for you!", the more I think that maybe, fate stepped in, some God or Higher Being said "This is where you need to be." So...I'm going to visit Seattle this weekend. I hope I feel some instant connection like I did with Northwestern. I just want to be happy.

(Other schools I was accepted to: UCSB, which is too close to home, UCIrvine, which is too much of a commuter school, SDSU, which is soo much like my high school which I hate, CSU Long Beach and Sonoma State, which are too easy of schools.)

SO! My plane project? I'm thinking I'll stop by the yarn store tomorrow, and knit the Liesel scarf in a deep blood red, or maybe a butter0-y yellow. My first lace! Ahhh. Frightening. I can do it though. 'Cause I knit that awesome hat.

And, you know, you need hats and scarves in Seattle. It rains there.

No real content in this post, but I was CRACKING up at "Grey's Anatomy" tonight! The knitting! Ah, the knitting!
