The calm *after* the storm

Hi! I’m back. Kind of. Back, but my head is still a bit out of it. Seems writing my thesis pretty much destroyed my ability to think any other thoughts, so I’m still waiting for that to come back. Also? Writing 20,000 words is a lot of words. And when you finish it leaves you not wanting to write anything else. Which includes blogging. But – it’s FINISHED!!! The hardest thing I’ve ever had to do is done. So done. So happy. I handed it all in last Monday and since then there’s been lots of sleeping, lounging, drinking, eating, making merry, and general good, stress-free times. I had completely forgotten what those were. Eh… now to anxiously await my results… Oh, and get a new life plan. Any ideas? I’m open to anything. I just love entering the workforce when all anyone’s talking about is recession recession recession. Cheery times.

But enough of my whining, there’s knitting to share!

After spending the whole month of august as an insomniac monster, I’m so looking forward to september being my month of indulgence. For the last three or so weeks of trying to finish the thesis-monster I would wake up multiple times a night with words racing through my head, trying to think of the perfect way to phrase whatever point I was making that day. If I had gotten to sleep at all, that is. Night after I handed it in? Slept like a baby, and every night since. It’s so good to be getting back to normal.
