I just put in the last few stitches on my page which has brought me to the halfway mark on the top row of my piece! That means I've finished 9/42 pages. As a reminder the piece is 14 pages across and 3 pages down so I'm making progress. It feels so good to reach this point. I finished like 3/4 of this page in 2 days.
Last time I was here:
My needle marks the halfway point. If you're wondering about the writing it's a show of solidarity against people who download/upload designer's charts for free. Most people show a picture of the chart with the stitching but since mine are all digital I put the company and my order number. I realized I was messing up counting on a couple of numbers and so far I'm 5 stitches too far to the right so I'll have to fudge the lettering a bit in the rest of that line. No biggie since I caught it now I'll just do the N and D one space left and then shorten three spaces until the next word.
I need to focus on school again. I got an 86% in my first class which was Composition II. I've started American History and got a 94% on my first exam but it was open book. All of the tests are open book except the final and unfortunately I had to use it quite a bit because my brain just doesn't do history well. I'm more of a math/science girl but mostly math. I really want to finish History in my next several days off but I need to schedule my final with a proctor so we'll see how far I get. I still have 12 more chapters to read and 4 tests including the final. Then I have World History, Nutrition and American Government. The only one I have confidence in is Nutrition.
I was supposed to have 6 days in a row off which was going to be my major study session but I found out today they took off my day tomorrow and added the 4th. Unfortunately it means a lot of people bitching about heat/firework viewing areas/anything else because people just like to complain. I just hope it doesn't rain. On the bright side they overstaffed the areas so as long as everybody shows up to work we'll have 7 people working which is more than double the regular staff. Fortunately it means I have a day off tomorrow which is my mom's birthday but also starts QVC's Christmas programming so I'll be vegging all day tomorrow and I'm aiming to get at least 1 test done. If I do the rest of the day will be stitching on the next page in the second row.
Well that's all in my life for now thanks for reading! We've given a moving date of 8/8 so we need jobs before then (hopefully in Colorado). Wish me luck!
See you guys next week and I appreciate all of the comments!
