Rewind & Review #44

Rewind & Review

Well I'm back at school! Classes started on the 17th, and I've mostly settled into the swing of things. I'm working every week night from 4-7, but I want to drop Fridays from my schedule soon. It's been nice to be back with my friends and on campus - although I haven't really left campus yet since I returned (walking to the library boxes and the grocery store do not count). I miss having my mom to drive me places. Not having my license or a car is a real drag.
I've had a fair amount of homework, so I haven't read quite as much as I wanted to. I have started a new cross-stitching project, though! It's bigger than my normal ones so I think it'll take me awhile longer than my previous ones.
I also discovered my new favorite (non-book) store. On Friday night, I went to the mall with my former TAG leader and one of my friends, and we went to Altar'd State. It's a very cool store. I saw some pieces I liked but they were out of my budget. I did try on a dress, and it looked great...except for the sleeves. They were just a wee bit too billowy. But I'm definitely keeping them in mind for future clothing needs and also cute home-decorating needs.
