Rose Red

There's something to be said for sales. Good sales mean that you can buy something and not feel guilty. Great sales mean that you can buy more of something and not feel guilty. Amazing sales mean that you can buy whatever you want and know you aren't spending any money at all.

I got wind of an amazing sale a few days ago (it only lasted a few hours, if that), and bought 5 skeins of Malabrigo Chunky yarn in the most lovely of colorways for half off! Half off! So now I'll be making a Juliet, after all (it's a Zephyr Girls pattern) and it will be lovely and incredibly warm.

The best part? The color looks really good on my complexion, and the pattern is quick and easy. Is this a win/win or what? As far as winning goes, I've been doing a great job of it lately - keeping organized, setting goals - they've all become a huge part of my daily repertoire. It's really amazing, considering that my lack of organizational skills has really worked against me in the past - yes, I'm that student that never turns things in on time, forgets about deadlines, and always seems to squeak past anyway. Not this year, though - new school, new commitment to personal bests!

My goals for the year are, like most students, simply to make the best grades possible. I know I can ace a 4.00 and get scholarships for this next semester and next year - I know I can! On top of it, I'm currently running through informal rush, joining clubs (I'm a member of the fashion department's club and also a writer for their magazine, Trend), and maybe even starting a few - the school has no yarn and fiber club, and I'm eager to try and get one running.

Impressive, I know. Want to know the secret to staying on top of it all?


  1. Congratulations on a great start to the school year. Getting yourself organized is more than half the battle. I keep myself in line with my Outlook calendar...on my phone. I have it set to give me reminders for *everything*!

    That rose is a gorgeous color. Enjoy your Juliet! I'm starting a new project, too. It's fall, so it's knitting time! But so was summer...

  2. GOSH I wish I could find sales! It seems I always miss them until like, the last minute!!

    I tagged you for a meme over at my blog, by the way ;)


Say something!
