Thanksgiving Break!!!

Sorry I have been MIA recently, the last few weeks of classes before break are always mini finals week at school. But in the midst of hasty essays and projects I was able to finish up my package for Vevina McFey. I'm so glad she loves it!! It was so much fun making all the knitted pieces and decorating the wrapping and all just in time to see the new Harry Potter movie!!!

Which I just have to say was an awesome, epic, dramatic movie!!! They did an amazing job, I felt as if I have already seen the movie because of the vivid images I have from reading the book. I definitely recommend it and would gladly watch it again.

Lazy days, home cooked meals, impending projects is what I am experiencing this Thanksgiving. I love being home and seeing my friends and family again. After this break i'll have about a month until I leave to Japan and I am counting down the seconds!!

Not a good day for me. My best friend might not be able to go to Japan with me and I cant imagine the trip without her ='( I am being plagued my financial troubles (me and the rest of the world). I have soooo much to do and no motivation to do any of it. And to top it all was raining today X(. I normally like the rain, when I can take long naps and laze around my room and do nothing.

I need to cheer up and see the bigger picture! But for now I just feel like Blah!

2nd Week Assignment!!!

So this week we were asked... What 5 things would you not leave home without if you were going into hiding, camping, or running away and WHY.

Well If I were to run away I would take
1. My Laptop and necessary lap top things (charger, laptop bag)
It would serve as a connection to the outside world. Now that I have deserted my former life I need a way to create a new identity to start all over. Plus I can google anything I want =).
2. A suitcase full of clothing
I am definitely going to be needing clothes!!!
3. Cash!
Cash is secure nowadays, cant have the police tracking me from my credit cards now =)
4. Passport
Well If I am running away I better be going somewhere amazing!! preferably outside of the US
5. Knitting
I gotta have my current WP, I might just go insane with out it!!!

That was fun!!! hmm I might make this trip a reality....some day =P
