Ack! We've had such an uneventful winter that even when you know it's coming, it's still a bit of a bummer. At first I was upset that I was stuck in the house for the day after all.
Yeah, see that mess outside? That's not even the worst of it yet. We're currently expecting about a foot of snow or so. Woo. Hoo. (This is my sarcasm font.)
This was all incredibly depressing until I realized... I'm stuck in the house all day.
Well, a big thanks to mother nature for giving me a valid excuse to sit inside, maybe do some homework, knit, and fill my belly with homemade tapioca pudding. Yum!
Oh! And there will be pinning lots of pinning.

The forecast for tomorrow is looking bleak, and what is potentially in store for Thursday looks even worse. So I have a feeling I'll be breaking out these bad boys tomorrow afternoon. I have a few projects in limbo that I really want to finish up.
Here's hoping the weather isn't absolutely awful on Thursday. We wouldn't want it to impact boyfriend's long awaited 21st birthday celebrations now would we?

This has become, in some ways, my passion. Christmas came and brought me all kinds of new jewelry making materials, and boy was it lovely. In fact, my mother has gotten into it with me and we're looking to attend some craft fairs and maybe even sell our things. It's a tedious process to learn sometimes, and it can be so incredibly frustrating, but after you've completed a piece,it's rather fulfilling. I love that "I made this" feeling. I think it's a big part of the reason why I got into Art and why I'm pursuing it in school. At the end of day, even after I've gotten frustrated and wanted to give up, when I'm able to sit back and see what I was able to do is incredibly rewarding and I couldn't imagine doing anything else with my life.
The only things that keeps me sane when I'm sitting on campus before 8am are these two lovelies right here. It kind of stinks because I don't need to be here, but boyfriend's car is currently out of commission and I'm not about to let him walk two miles to school because I'm too lazy to wake up in the morning... So here we are.
At least I have my mocha nut fudge coffee and a choco-walla bar to keep me company. Am I sensing a pattern here?
(p.s. - it's all kinds of unfair when boyfriend's 9:30 class is cancelled but I have a test in mine. So close! ... Not that I condone school skipping or anything.)
