College #59

Another crazy two weeks. This time, though, not tragic - just working on finishing up my grad portfolio. More on that later.

Before:


After:


I have about 1300 stitches left in the page so it's possible that I'll have a page finish soon!

On the grad portfolio front, I'm about halfway through. I have written 8 competencies and all of them have been accepted, which means I have 9 competencies left. It's due in about 2 weeks, but I'm hoping to finish it up by the end of this coming week, while still keeping up with my other classes. This is the explanation as to why I'm a zombie right now. With the exception of maybe an hour of stitching here and there I have been almost exclusively doing homework. And it sucks. A lot.

But once my grad portfolio is done it's just a matter of finishing up my two classes, and May 13th is the end of the semester and the end of grad school! So cross your fingers and send good vibes!

Still no word on my venue for the wedding, but I'm just going to pretend like nothing is wrong and everything will go as planned unless I hear otherwise.

I did not make the 5 pound challenge. I was .4 pounds off. But that's ok, because I put in a good effort and I haven't given up yet! Still going!

So the stats for this week are...
Days until end of school: 37
Days until the wedding: 181
Anticipated completion date for above chart: 8/16/2016

Next update will probably be in about two weeks, and I'm hoping it will be a page finish!
