I decided about three weeks ago after my first day of college that the whole experience is very much like buying tampons for the first time. Everyone remembers that first nerve-wracking trip to the drugstore - you feel like someone's ripping your uterus from your body and all you want to do is get in and out. Inevitably though, whoever you're purchasing them from has to go all 5 o'clock-after-school-special on you and make some inappropriate comment that embarasses you and send you out the door the color of a tomato. That's college, in a nutshell. Grinning and bearing it doesn't work.. and someone is always going to make that inappropriate comment.
My classes are fantastic and the opportunities are endless - I can only hope things will improve for me socially. I will admit, I'm having a bit of a hard time relating. I suppose that will come with time.

I'm also almost finished with my Halloween crochet patterns - I'll have them posted this weekend! ;)
In swap news: I'm making serious progress for my partner.. I really think she's going to love her stuff and I can't wait to show all of you!! :D
College is insane but I'm going to try much harder to be around more often. It's no fun doing this alone.
