New Year's Resolution

Well, this blog didn't really happen last year, but I'm determined it will this time. My resolution is to write every day, either in my journal or by posting on my blog. So, even though this quarter is going to be insane, I'm really going to make an effort. I'm also going to try to make sure to post pictures, as soon as I take some new ones.

Some friends drove me back to school today, and I'm settled back into my apartment and I already unpacked at least half my stuff. (I'm going to be so much more organized this year) Winter quarter starts tomorrow. I have five classes for a total of eighteen units. I'm having trouble scheduling any tutoring, so maybe I'll go back to my old on-campus job. I'll find out what's available this week. Other than that, I'll be studying as usual and trying to figure out what in the world I am going to do after I graduate. I already had several ideas, and family and friends suggested a few new ones this week. It should be really fun, but my head is kind of spinning from all the options.

I frogged and restarted a hat today during the ride back to school. I'm making it as a gift for my cousin, who is currently on a mission trip in Colorado, where it is much colder and snowier than we California kids are used to. So I got some nice blue wool and I'm going to knit this hat for him and a cabled scarf to go with it (we didn't think he would wear a cable hat, but I'm going to cable the scarf because a)I like cables and I want to and b)it'll make a nice thick warm scarf so hopefully he will wear it even if it's not completely boring and plain. Guys are a lot harder to knit for than girls. (I realize that's not a surprise to anyone, but I don't have any brothers, so I'm new to this.)
