Colorado here I come!

It is official!  I found and apartment and I will be there on January 8th.  I'm really excited about moving and starting a new chapter of my life.  There are some friends here that I am really going to miss but that is about all that I will miss.  The new apartment is bigger and nicer and the town is really nice.  It is a small town but it has a lot to offer that I am interested in.

I hate packing though!!!!!!!!

Fall 2010 Convocation Journey

The Fall Convocation was a lot of fun!!  We have some very talented writers in Ravenclaw Tower and it was so nice of them to take the time and effort to do Convocation for us.  I'm proud to say that I reached each milestone and was able to help save Foxy.  Here are the badges I earned:

 I earned 632 points for my house (I don't think all bonus points were counted though).  I really did a lot of knitting and crocheting for this term and I was the 10th highest points scorer of Ravenclaw.  Next term I will be crafting solely from stash and I have a lot of bigger projects to do so hopefully the mojo can keep flowing.  I hope the move doesn't cut down on my crafting time too much though.

I'm Moving!!!

Paris was great!!  I had a great time with Mom and we were able to see so many things.  Mom had a great time and was really excited to have gotten to Europe...if not a little annoyed at some no public restrooms :)  I really want to take her to Italy sometime too.

Next week I am heading to Colorado to try to find a place to live.  I'm so excited to see Luis again.  I miss him sooo much.  I'm flying in and renting a car at the airport.  This will be the first time I've ever rented a car!  I'm very excited to move but I'm not excited to have to move all my stuff...I just can't seem to get rid of anything though.

My seventh term of the HPKCHC has officially ended.  It sounds like we will be starting Ministry Levels now so that will be cool.  I have grand plans for next term with OWLs and getting a bunch of my stash used up.  I have come to terms with myself and admitted that I have way too much yarn and I need to use it up before I buy any more.  My goal is to get it all down to one rubbermaid tote and then I can buy yarn to make a Sylvi.  I'm confident that I have the skill to make one now but I definitely want to get some nice yarn to make it so I will have to wait until my stash is used up...hopefully I'm not 80 by that time (I'm only 27 now).

Bye bye October, Hello Paris!

Well, October is ending.  I have enjoyed seeing all the leaves change and fall.  I love the smell of Fall!!  It is getting colder in the Northwoods and I've had to break out the hats, scarves, and mittens.  I better get my winter boots out of storage too because it will start snowing very soon.

It was a pretty good month for the House Cup.  I finished 4 classes, 2 OWL 50% marks, and a quidditch project.  I'm really excited for the new movie to come out this November.

November 3rd my mom and I leave for Paris!!!!!!!!!  We are going for 8 days, 7 nights.  One day we have tickets to take the chunnel to London for the day too!  Mom has never been to Europe and I'm really excited to go back.  I even found some yarn stores to check out :)

I am sad to be leaving Luis though.  He is leaving tonight to go to Colorado and won't be back until Wednesday night.  I'm leaving Wednesday morning so we will just miss each other and I won't see him until the 11th or 12th :(  There is a good possibility that we will be moving to Colorado.  I'm excited and nervous at the same time.  I'm itching to move again but things will be really strained with his family there.  I guess we will just have to see what happens....

Fall 2010 HPKCHC

Well, I managed to finish 6 classes this month, get a good start on both OWLs and on a sweater for Quidditch. My goal is to score as many points as I can this is my seventh year after all :)

October 1st would have been Dad's 60th birthday. I can't believe he has been gone for 9 years. Mom's 60th is November 6th and we will be in Paris, France celebrating. I'm so excited and I can't believe that we are actually going. Mom has never been to Europe before and I am so happy that I get to share this experience with her. She doesn't know it yet but I bought her ticket for her so that she has more money to spend on herself while we are there. She has done so much for me that this is the least I can do.

Also I am starting the UBC program on October 3rd. It is a 10 week intensive kick-boxing and body sculpting workout program 6 days a week. Mom has been doing it back home and she has seen amazing results. I really want to get in shape and I am really looking forward to it.

Well, it has only been almost a year since I wrote on my blog.... Life has been pretty hectic lately. I changed jobs, broke off my engagement, and moved. Things are finally starting to settle into a groove again so hopefully I can start knitting and crocheting more soon....although it has been really hot up here so I don't know how much I will want to play with yarn for a bit.
