Wow, 2 posts in one day :)
I haven't figured out yet if I should include my 100 day challenge and my regular post together or separate. I'm just going to put them together and see how it works, but I just thought that this topic deserved it's own post.
First, I sewed my very first project from a pattern! All by myself!!
It's a little pouch just a little bit bigger than my cell phone... not too bad for my first time, huh? I bought a few more patterns for some tote bags and a ruffled wallet, so hopefully I'll have some free time soon to work on them!
Next, my strawberry patch is doing incredibly well... I can't seem to keep up with all the strawberries!
I picked a bowl after taking a walk/jog last night , then made a smoothie! I added my own strawberries, of course, a banana, a scoop of sugar free cherry ice cream, and some vanilla soy milk and it was a.maz.ing.
Last, but certainly not least... they posted official grades on-line last night. I have been checking every few hours because I'm a nerd like that. So here's my final official grades for spring semester....
Notice that little number in the upper left of the screenshot? 4.0 :)
I literally squealed and jumped off the couch! I've been working so hard since committing to this degree in january and it's just so nice to see that all my hard work and effort have paid off.
Going back to college is something I've been wanting to do for years. I went to a technical college in Madison, WI immediately after graduating. I had no clue what I wanted to study, so I took general classes (algebra, english, intro to film, and psychology). I didn't really enjoy my classes, the school was small, and I was a young, naive girl from a tiny country town living in a big exciting city. Needless to say, I stopped going to class after about 2 months. I knew eventually I would return, but it's easy to put it off. Ultimately, it's taken a few not so ideal jobs and the big 30 looming in my not-so-distant future to give me the final push.
So there you have it lovely blog friends... I hope you all have a beautiful day :)
