My eagerness to finish this page showed when between Friday and Saturday I put in 1,044 stitches. I'm not quite sure how I did it, to be honest, but I did, and page 20 is done!
This puts me at 85% done with College of Magical Knowledge! It's exciting knowing that I'm in the last legs of the journey. There are four pages left and I hope I can still finish this project in time to have it framed for Christmas. I guess we'll find out, but I'm gridding up the next page today and diving right in.
In other news, I got my car back and it looks like nothing ever happened to it. I guess I should have expected that but since I've never had to get extensive body work done, I found it surprising.
Next Saturday I'm running my half marathon. It has been really hot out here lately, but it is a moonlight run so I hope that will make it better. I've been trying to run at dusk to get used to it, and so far so good. I actually prefer running at dusk.
On a more personal note, I feel like I'm in a constant state of flux. Usually, that would be a bad thing. But I'm taking the time to get to know myself and improve myself every step of the way and I think it's working. Or, at least, I feel a lot better than I have in years. About myself, about my situation, about the future. I'm choosing to be positive and despite some people's best efforts, it's my choice to focus on the good and not worry about things I can't change.
This is my 200th post. Here's to at least another 200.
Happy stitching, everyone!
