Nose to the Grindstone

I'm back at school, and being a silly girl I left my computer home when I moved back into my apartment. People are saying I did it on purpose so that I would have an excuse to go home again. Needless to say I'd rather be home than here, and people know it.

For the most part my classes seem good, I've got some really, really heavy reading courses, and we'll see how long that lasts. At least they don't start out easy on us!

I think I won't have a lot of time for making jewelry, but I'm hoping that my Enameling class really pushes me forward in that area. Right now I'm making small things, mostly to benefit New Paltz Habitat for Humanity. We're fundraising for a trip down to New Orleans to rebuild over our spring break. It's challenging and frustrating and exciting all at once!

I'm reading:
Take a Thief by Mercedes Lackey for the YA Challenge
Shame of the Nation by Jonathan Kozol for Sociological and Philosophical Foundations of Education
This Land Was Theirs by Wendell H. Oswalt for Indians of North America
The History and Tradition of Jazz by Thomas Larson for History of Jazz
The Art of Enameling by Linda Darty for Enameling

I am simply exhausted by all you do. You have energy and ambition enough for 3!
