College Life

Sucks :(
My new time table features *drumrolls*13 hours of maths and only 4 hours of German a week!

Commissions have been keeping me busy aswell and so has the gym!

Pink Sailor Skirt in progress

Chinese Character for Jade
A new takeaway is opening nearby and I embroidered the takeaway's name on to their aprons ^_^ It feels weird getting commissioned for machine embroidery.

This Sunday I'm starting a Mandarin course with Mr Nice Guy ^^ Hopefully we can sit the GCSE Chinese at the end of the summer!

He bought me a notebook for our lessons together ^^ I used some GLB stickers on it :)
I'm hoping to study Chinese Mandarin and German at university for four years. I'm currently looking at universities and struggling with my personal statement!

Journeys to college are long so I decided to start knitting a circle scarf, I'm currently unravelling another scarf to make it though XD It was my dads but he doesn't use it :(

I found a pin cushion a sewn years and years ago! so cute :3 and dusty XD

I can't think of an imaginative question atm, What sucks in your life?

Have a great weekend, Grace! ;D

Good luck with college, and applying for uni, the personal statement bit is a pain in the arse, but once you get that bit over with it's usually ok.
What sucks in my life?
People who've never even met me spreading rumours about me...Yeah that's not nice :(

Hey thank you sooo much for that lovely comment.
It´s amazing how good you can sew.

To your question: I guess, what sucks mostely in my life at the moment is the fact that I don´t have a job (until next week.) I don´t know what to do with my free time. I´m horrbile! Haha

Carmen said...

Your pin cushion is so cute, I'm so jealous of all the cute things you have!

Awww, that sucks! 13 hrs of Math is intense! I struggled with my personal statement for ages, I just couldn't bring myself to write it and I hate writing about myself in that context! I think the best thing to do is find someone to write it with! That will help a lot.

suki pooki said...

Im glad that you're doing well and keeping busy! That skirt looks cute and I always envy people who can make a living sewing! If I ever lose a button I will probably need to take it to the tailor to get it fixed LOL....sad I know =(

Hmmm What sucks in my life? Honestly, not being to get my travel/trip planning down pat due to so many unknown situations!

Florence said...

sucks that i'm quite alone! ahaha books keep me company! and food ... nom

Emily C. said...

the old pin cushion is so cute. hope everything will be fine for you in uni! i'm learning mandarin too. it's my 10th year learning and i'm still struggling with it. i hope to learn german some day too.

Do you use double pointed needles for circular knitting? I've bought bamboo circulars, they're beautiful :P and you can knit straight on them too, and they're much easier for transporting knitting :)

If you need someone to check through your statement just drop me a line :) What happened to the engineering?

Currently what sucks in my life is that I let down a friend. I promised her I would help her with a church thing and I can't because I have too much homework. I feel like such a jerk.
