September Break?

FALL BREAK autumn by KnitXcorE on Grooveshark

So, it looks like I've taken an unannounced "September Break", huh?

As you all know, school has started and I've definitely had my hands full

Also, I'm finally wrapping up that HUGE project I've been hinting about for almost a year. It's probably one of the most important and exciting things that I've ever done and I can't wait to share it with you.

This week, I'm going to to try to catch you up on what's been going on 'round these parts before jumping back into the swing of things. Sound good?

I made you a mixtape to help ease any hard feelings.

Are we okay now?

photo dump.

If you haven't noticed, we really like to take pictures at work. Like, a lot.

Last week, Dani brought in a disposable and we took some photos in the staff only hallway behind the store. They're kinda creepy, but it'a a pretty creepy place. Creepy enough for someone to write, "This is Saw 3" on the wall, anyway.

Good times.

If you're not following Julia at CraftyNuggets, you should probably hop to it! She's in the middle of a Sketch-a Day project, and she picked me (because I begged her at Knit Night) as a subject!!!!!

God, she's so good!

Do you love it?! I do.

Thanks, Julia!!!!!

(Analog) Monday: Romeo + Juliet.

ROMEO & JULIET romeo Collage

So, I can't stop watching My So-Called Life. My life for the past three days has consisted solely of knitting on the couch sharing the company of Angela Chase and Jordan Catalano while trying to eat my body weight in parsley.

Since all that I can think about is Claire Danes, I found the Baz Luhrman's Romeo +  Juliet Soundtrack most apropos for today's (analog) Monday. This cassette appears courtesy of the always supportive Rich Russell, who feeds the angsty teenager that still lives inside me every chance he gets. Well, that sounded weird. Whatever. It's late and I'm hungry. I really can't think of anything except the moment when Dave is going to get home with a 7-layer burrito and a root beer for me.

I've been feeling really anxious lately because I start classes at a new school on Wednesday. I keep having dreams about high school, or dreams where people from high school show up. Not bad ones or anything. High school was actually a pretty good experience for me. I guess this Analog Monday has a two-fold purpose for me, actually. The summer before I started high school, two friends and I watched Romeo and Juliet religiously. We must have seen it in the theatres at least ten times. As soon as it came out on VHS, we watched it every single day and so the soundtrack has become super nostalgic to me.

As I embark on yet another educational facet of my life, I'm looking back to what made the others so special and hoping for the same.

This post is definitely dedicated to my high school BFFL's Heather and Sheena, whom I haven't seen in quite awhile but still think about always. I miss you girls!!!!

And with that being said, Wish me LUCK!!!! I'm gonna need it :-)
