It was really hard to wake up this morning. And I mean HARD. I was sleeping way too good. The heater was on, making my house toasty, and it was 35 degrees outside so it was freezing cold. I got my butt up and the entire time I was getting ready and on my way to work I just kept repeating this mantra in my head: I can't believe I'm going to work. Again, I am VERY happy today is my Friday because I am all out of energy. I keep having to reposition myself in my chair, squrming here and there, so I can stay awake. I'm looking forward to tomorrow as if it's a holiday. I'm going to sleep in, draw, lounge in my pjs, wash my hair, and somehow get myself together so I can put in four hours at the internship. My work was critiqued yesterday and I had a good one. The comments from others (along with comments here) made me smile. It was nice to slowly watch all of the lightbulbs go off in my classmate's heads when they were evaluating my piece. Man, it just felt GOOD. When my piece was up for my critique, my teacher said it was quite possibly the most painful thing he had seen in his life. That was cool! The best part is when we're done with the class critique, I'm packing up my stuff, and a student comes up to me on their own accord and says, "Good job, your piece was phenomenal". I think that means the most and when someone else's work effects me and I just love it, I'm sure to tell the artist they're appreciated. This is the best part of school for me, the interaction and the process of bouncing ideas off of each other.
One of my friends from class is interested in a knitted hat! He wants to have chocolate and a brown/green shade (the one from my first scarf) for his colors. He might order a scarf as well. Camera, here I come!

"You appear to be a Knitting Goddess. You are constantly giving and are unconcerned with reward, you simply want others to love knitting as much as you do. If someone wants to knit miles of novelty yarns, you are there for them. If someone wants to learn short row shaping, you can help. There are no taboos in knitting, only opportunities to grow. Everyone should have friend like you around if they want to learn to knit, and there's a good chance that your passion has rubbed off on a few others."
