Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

Well fuck.

Well this week has been thoroughly crap. Absolutely no craftiness has been going on, and it looks set to stay that way, until the Christmas holidays where I might(if I’m very very lucky) get to start a fairly large project. Fingers crossed I have the time to :P.

So, what have I been up to? Reading blogs and wishing I could craft myself, for some of the time. I’ve also been snowed under by more coursework :(. Deadlines: tomorrow(handed in already), tomorrow(someone else is writing that up) and Friday(giving me kittens because I cannot, for the life of me, figure out this stuff). Then I have a test on Tuesday I need to revise for, and two tests in the week beginning the 10th of December, coursework due in next term, but I really could do with finishing it before I go home for Christmas, because I’ll be busy writing up my report. And I have a presentation to give in that last week of term too. I know, this is really rather moany of me, but the lack of crafting is really getting to me. I’m kindof looking at my cross stitch, and wanting to, and feeling guilty that I’m not getting on with my work but it’s all so much that I don’t really have any motivation to start! Completely different to starting a big cross stitch project!

And I also need to pull my head out of my arse about applying for some graduate jobs! There are a couple that look interesting, but applying for only three jobs is probably a bit silly…if only I could find anything else that interests me!

Well, rant over! Now to get back to this quantum physics malarky!

Hope you’re all having more crafting time than I am
