On Four Hours

I went to bed around 5:30 this morning. Yes, that's right, 5:30 am. What time did I have class? 10 am. What time did I want to get up to get ready? 9 am. What time did I actually get up? 9:50 am. Of course I contemplated not going to class and just getting the notes from someone...which took 2 minutes. And it takes 10-15 minutes to walk to class. I decided I should go to class, and I was 15 minutes late, which wasn't too bad. So I've been running on 4 hours of sleep and so far I'm okay. I don't know how I'm doing it...Must be magic.

You might ask, what in the world was I doing up so late? Well, I was baking. With Cathy. For Valentine's Day basically. Look what we made:

Cherry Pie
Can you tell it's canned? Yeah....that's all we really had time for since we were making so much stuff (I was inspired).

Bleeding Heart CupcakesThese were so fun to make. Very tedious though. As you can tell, they don't really look like hearts, but that's okay. Fortunately, I'm not going into Anatomy or Physiology.

We also made some of these, but omitted the nuts and half a cup of chips, and added raisins. The raisins added a funky taste when eaten right out of the oven, but when they cooled off, they weren't bad. I'm planning to make some for my special someone this weekend.

Okay, I need to finish some homework before I crash. Sleeeeep...mmm

Super Duper Tuesday

I actually already voted. Absentee ballot. I figured it would be easier than trying to get back to my county while attending all my classes. But I hope everyone else votes. I've noticed a major increase in younger people's interest in politics and such, or at least in myself =P. It could just be because I'm noticing it more, but, hey, even the news says that the youth have a big say in this election. I have to say, it takes a bit of time to get all the information about elections and propositions to cast a knowledgeable vote, so I can't blame some college students for not wanting to make an uninformed vote. But I think I'm satisfied with my vote. Although, if you live in California and saw all those ads on TV about the Indian Casinos...yeah that was a tough one for me.

Anyway, I have not worked on anything since I last posted, though I intended to. I've got a bunch of reading and homework to do. Mmm, lab stuff...*sigh* Maybe this weekend I'll be able to work on some stuff. My special someone is coming to visit though; he might distract me from my knitting duties. We'll see.

Has it been more than a week?

Yeah, it has...Damn. I really have not been knitting much. Stupid school. I wish I had pictures to show but I haven't really had the time to upload any from my camera, let alone take any. I think the next time I have a chance to be crafty might be after midterms...or finals... ><
