"I hate waiting."

As you might guess, I'm a bit impatient. I had hoped that picking up a pair of knitting needles would help me learn about the virtue of patience... but it seems I just want my projects to go along as quickly as possible.

Mail Time!!

Here's the mail, it never fails, when it comes, it makes me want to wag my tail....


So, maybe someone has been watching Blue's Clues. Maybe.

Lookie what my SP sent me! Her sense of humor is funny, isn't it?
But what a great way to address a secret piece of mail...

Speaking of which, I've been having a blast with this round of SP. Not only has
the pal spoiling me already sent me a card and a e-card, but the person I'm spoiling is so much fun to get to know.

On to other mail...

How surprised was I to get a package slip last night, saying I had something from Amazon.com waiting for me? I went bright and early this morning to pick up my package, and ripped into the box to find out who it was from! See the name on the "bill to:" part? Joanne gifted me with Wrap Style for answering the lyric challenge correctly. I met Joanne this summer, not even 2 months ago, and i have to say, she embodies the "you'll never meet a more generous person than a knitter" saying that I've heard. Not only does she generously help us at knitting groups with what must seem like stupid knitting problems, but she even offers to help us learn the HARD stuff like Fair Isle and Intarsia. What a doll. Sneaky too! (as Laura knows...)

Life news: I got my last admissions packet in the mail this week, so I'm making bundles of recommendations forms for my professors. Six schools have the opportunity to welcome me to their programs, most of which are East Coast schools. Teacher's College at Columbia University, NYU, Boston College, Fordham, Seton Hall, and Loyola University are the schools to which I'm applying, and Teacher's College is my top choice. Now... I'm a lucky lucky duck. I found out this past week that a professor in my master's program is friends with the Department Chair at Teacher's College and that he'd like to help me with my application.

Other life news: In my master's program, I have to complete both a practicum (which I'm doing now) and an internship. In internship, I need to have 180 client contact hours with couples or families, plus another 60 of whatever kind of client contact hours I can muster up (either individual or family hours). I really wanted to do my internship at Safehouse in Boulder, which focuses on Domestic violence issues, and social justice. I had an interview on Thursday morning, and guess what? Still a lucky duck, b/c they asked me to intern there at the end of the interview.

Now, who's gonna join me in Boulder for the Knit Out tomorrow morning? Wanda and I are carpooling, and I hope to see some of you there!

Oh goody! I'm glad your SP is already spoiling you. That bodes well for the rest of the SP6 experience.

So I've already found out why you're needing to learn more about Boulder! See ya in the a.m.!
