Far too much time has passed since I’ve last blogged. I guess grad school finally caught up with me! I’ve been keeping busy with class projects/papers/exams and (of course) research. Things are finally set up in the lab the way that I want them, so I’ll probably be spending a lot more time in there. :) I feel like such a badass in my tie-dyed labcoat with my new instruments going.
By now, I’m sure it’s apparent that I’m not taking part in NaBloPoMo this year. There’s no way; I just don’t have enough to write about for a whole month! The knitwise among you probably know that it’s also NaKniSweMo (National Knit a Sweater Month), though. As I cast on my first “real” sweater recently, I’m hoping to finish it this month.
A couple weeks ago, Mom came to visit. (Has it really been a couple of weeks already?) I’ve been really homesick, and it was great to see her. I can’t wait for the holidays.
Before she got here, we thought we’d get really crazy and paint the guest room! I’m really proud of the way it turned out. Here’s the (ugly yellow) before:
And the after:
It’s hard to tell from the pictures because the lighting is so much different in different corners of the room, but the true color is probably somewhere between the first picture and the third picture. It looks great, and it’s so nice to have another room done. Our next project will either be the bedroom or the basement! (They’re both yellow, too. WTF!)
