Well, school has begun again. I've only had 2 classes so far.
-I've probably seen most of the things in person that we're going to be learning about in my Northern Renaissance Art class.
-I have to take Intro to Philosophy and it's going to be a loooooong semester. It was only the first day and I was hit with a whole lot of stupid. An extreme amount from one particular person. He even made the teacher exasperated. That takes skill. One of the things that bothered me was his remark about how "The only reason people believe in God is because they're afraid of dying and it makes them feel better to think there's something after death" and that people shouldn't believe in miracles because it's all about science. I nearly turned around and called him stupid to his face. He's lucky I wasn't sitting closer. I don't care if that's what you think, just don't act all righteous about your beliefs and tell me that that's the only reason why I believe what I believe. We've experienced a miracle or two in my family. The fact that my sister's boyfriend is still alive and able to walk is a miracle. (He was in a car accident that smashed some of his vertebrae.) I just really wish I didn't have to take this damn class. I have a feeling that I won't be talking much in the class for fear of exploding at someone. I have pretty good self-control but sometimes....Yeah.....
-I'm also taking Jewelry, Watercolor, Entrepreneurial Illustration, Fairy Tales and Illustration Styles and Concepts.
-In other news, knitting news to be exact, my Time Traveler socks are going well, if slow. I can't knit on them without looking, so I have to knit my Doctor Who scarf during class instead of the socks. I should finish my sister's cowl. I'm just not looking forward to grafting three 33" pieces into tubes. I should have just knit them in the round like I had thought of. Oh well.
-I should have knit Christmas presents, but I don't want to spend any more money on yarn right now.
-I really need to start on the knitwear that I'm going to be selling. I'm just really lazy right now. I haven't even unpacked from coming back from break.
-I'm going to go sleep.
