There Are No Words

Posted by allie on April 4, 2006

I just spent the last 20 minutes writing a post full of emotion and seemingly interesting venting I have needed to proclaim widely, but my computer decided to take a break on me. Needless to say, I was not happy. It will take me even longer now, but I need to put a decent post out there soon. So, here goes…
Monthly Dishcloth KAL began on Saturday, but I have sworn to myself that I will knit nothing (including dishcloths) until I finish Taylor’s afghan. Even though I’ve only managed 4 squares so far, it is becoming tedious and I long for variety, but I must be strong.
The Sexy Knitters Club KAL also began Saturday and I absolutely adore the Somewhat Cowl and wish I could make it, but I both lack the funding and I cannot buy yarn for myself until Easter (I could kick myself for my Lenten sacrifice: no books and yarn).
Knit the Classics KAL is on yet another new book, while I’m still reading February’s book Woman on the Edge of Time. Once I finish that, I will still have to read Life of Pi and Moll Flanders in order to catch up.
I love being a part of each and every one of these groups, I’m just feeling guilty about being unable to keep up with all of the others.
In addition to all of the books I need to read for KTC, I decided to re-read the Harry Potter series and I’m currently 200 pages into Prisoner of Azkaban. Not that reading Harry Potter is stressful, since I want to do it, I just feel a little too busy, I guess.
I have a lot of trouble carving productive time out for myself, which is funny considering I’m an avid reader and knitter. I apologize for my venting of my current frustrations, but what’s a blog for?
I decided I might post a picture of all of the books I am currently reading, need to be reading, and the ones I am required to have read in just a few short months.

Life tends to be overwhelming in fits and starts and right now, I am feeling the stress of upcoming research projects and exams, including the ACT on Saturday.
I guess that’s about it, but it’s great to just get all of that out and to reflect on my current emotions.
