I made it through the first semester of nursing school and lived to tell about it. Can't say it was fun, but I learned a lot and had the most amazing Christmas break to recover.
Now it's on to the second semester which is already shaping up to be 10 times worse than the first. The sheer volume of information overwhelms me, but Jeff says I can do it, and I'm choosing to believe him.
I realized over the break that in putting all my knitting, sewing, and crochet projects aside, I had neglected a very important part of who I am. All books and no stitching make Sheryl a very dull girl. A friend introduced me to Ravalry, the coolest site for crafters, this morning. I plan to start uploading photos of my projects in the next day or so and will post them here as well.
My mantra lately has been, "I wish I may, I wish I might, Stitch a stitch or two tonight". One of my New Year's resolutions was to do that very thing. Even if it's only for 5 minutes, there's something so therapeutic about picking up the needles and yarn, I just don't think I can suppress all my creative urges for the next three semesters!
