I turn 21 in exactly two months!!!
Ok, now that's out of my system. lol
Someone asked if I've got any big plans. I said "Well, from the times my parents have let me taste alcohol I know I don't like it. So mom and I were joking that she would take me to a bar to buy me beer, and that when I didn't like it she would drink it." I did add that in reality she thinks I might like mead, so we'll see how that goes over.
I don't know what it is about turning 21 that's got me so happy and anticipating it. The only real difference is that I'll be able to buy alcohol, and that's not something I'm even really interested in. Maybe it's just that it's a cool number? I dunno.
I also wanted to share that I won a game of banagrams recently! It's a game "Santa" gave us for Christmas, and it's similar to scrabble. It's not one I'd expected to win. I was so happy that I took a photo, and I'm such a nut that I'm sharing it here. lol And yes, you'll find each of those words in the dictionary. I can't remember offhand what all of them mean...but they're there. ;)
Lastly, I want to share a brilliant idea. It's something that a classmate of mine thought up last term, and I finally decided to do last evening.
We have three big books that we have to take with us to class, and not very many of their pages are in the syllabi. The books are big, and they're heavy. And, they are easily disassembled. Reassembling them is slightly harder, though, if you try to put them back together the way they started (which is what my classmate did). But I don't care about putting them back in their original condition -- I just want something that works, and I am more than happy to use needle and yarn.
I was so delighted with my efforts that I took photos, including the one below. What I'll be carrying around in my backpack is to the right in the photo. What I will NOT be lugging around this term is to the left.
Hey, I wonder...is this something I could make money at? I'm sure loads of other college kids would love to only carry the pages that they absolutely need...
