College 82

I am a terrible blogger!!! I feel like I start every blog post like that recently. Honestly, though, by the time I get home from work all I want to do is either stitch or play video games and I don't even think about blogging. I think another part of it is I am SO READY to be done with College that I just hunker down and stitch as much as I can on it without consideration for anything else.



I'm about 1,400 stitches away from finishing the current page. Then just one more page to go and it's done. I don't know how I stand in finishing it in time for Christmas. It's still my goal, but I may have to let go of it. Either way, though, it's going to get finished as soon as I can and then I can at least have one BAP under my belt (and a million more to go).

I ran a 10k last week, which went well. Ran it with a friend of mine who has never run a 10k so it was more for fun than anything else. I have another 10k in two weeks but that one is a little more difficult. For anyone familiar with the Marin Headlands, that's where the run is. For those not familiar with the Marin Headlands, here's a link to a topographical map. So the views will be beautiful, but I may die.

Besides that it has just been work work work. I try to keep a good work/life balance with the knowledge that overtime is sometimes necessary, but I don't make it a habit. I do what needs to get done and make it clear that I don't live to work. I do love my job, at least so far, granted I've only been there three months. H³ seems to be enjoying grad school, and he takes every opportunity to help me relax. If I want to play video games, he builds me a video game throne out of pillows on top of the bed. We go for nightly walks and are generally trying to enjoy life.

So things are pretty good right now. And I hope all is well with everyone else. Once I finish College I will try to get back to posting regularly and stitching other things. I'm just in this final push and hope I can get this done in time. We shall see, though.

Until next time, happy stitching!

Ewa, I know the feeling re blogging - I haven't had much time for it either. I am so thrilled for you that you are so close to finishing College - well done! And good luck for the 10K run - you are right, it will have stunning views but will be challenging!

It's getting so close! Good luck finishing :) I love that he builds you a video game throne/fort lol that's awesome. Hubby just bought Fallout 4 (As a reward for me starting work lol) so I won't have the tv for a while

Congrats on the 10K, I'm in awe!
Loving college, and you are so close to finish... I'm torn on working a Christensen, I've got a few of his in my stash, I love that there's always something new to work on, but they are quite intimidating (esp as I've bought one as an SS).

According to your sidebar you only have 10,000 stitches to go in College which is totally doable by Christmas. It's 2,000 a week.

Love the idea of a video game throne too. Much more than the 10K run!

Blogging moods come and go with me, so I completely understand, especially when life gets in the way. But hey, you are SOOO close to being finished with College, it will be done in no time!
