Apparantly, the Knitting Guild of America is having a conference right here in my own little backyard this weekend! How did I miss this? Well, it could be because I am not a part of any local knitting organization. It’s not intentional, it’s just a little difficult time wise with grad school and all and I just haven’t found one that seems relevant to me. Maybe I’ll bump into someone this weekend that will just click and I’ll find an organization. So, I’m not going to any of the classes, although a couple sound very interesting, because I’m saving my money for the market! I’m still the slightest bit intimidated by “live” classes, since all my knitting has been learned either from my mom or via internet. Someday maybe my pride will get out of the way and allow me to attend a class, I’m sure it will be worth it.
Monica has finished a ribby pullover (I think it’s this one) and it looks SO great. Oh how I want to make one! I must finish Grover, I must finish Grover, I must finish Grover. Maybe I can find some fun yarn to make a ribby with at the market this weekend. I’m making the hubby come with me, he has no idea what he’s in for. 🙂
So last night, a guy came to speak to my class to talk about what we should be doing with ourselves during our masters. It was rather intimidating because I don’t currently feel like I’m doing any of those things. Unfortunately, I don’t feel like I have many options because I am in a position that in order to meet our future goals, I have to work now. Someday, I may be a mostly stay at home mom, working only at the local community college as a prof now and then. But, for now, I have to work. So, that’s got me thinking about what I can do in my job to make it applicable to my future studies. Basically, I’m looking into other jobs and volunteer opportunities that will allow me to get some hands on experience related to the interpersonal and health communication fields. Hopefully I’ll come up with something. I hate the feeling that I am running but not making any progress….maybe that’s why I don’t like treadmills. 🙂
