Sometimes things are just a long time a comin’…

Like when the humidity has been near 100% all day – and finally that summer rainstorm comes and breaks the heat… suddenly, you can breath again. Your clothing stops sticking to you and actually moves and drapes.

Like when you’ve spent all day cooking this incredible feast… and the table is set, the desert is ready in the fridge… and finally, it’s time to eat.

For me, this post is a long time coming.  I’ve just kinda had a lot going on lately.  I’m all moved into my apartment for one.  My real apartment anyway.  The one I’ll be in for the rest of the summer (really, for the rest of spring and only one month of summer, but who’s being picky?) anyway.

I’m all settled into the internship.  I’m learning a lot and it definitely has it’s ups and downs.  Working 9-5, and sometimes more than that was a little hard to adjust to, but I think I’ve found my way into the daily grind.  I’m still really, really looking forward to getting back to IU and the residence halls.  I miss IU.

I am enjoying the city, though.  I’ve sent hours at central park and the Met and on the subway, and the other day, we went and saw Spring Awakening on Broadway.  It was amazing (but totally NOT parent appropriate, in case anyone was wondering) – the music just blew my mind!  Loved it, loved it, loved it!

I am about 90% done designing a pair of socks.  It’s going to be a free pattern – because after I had the first one all knit, I found out that a pattern already exists for the same stitch pattern.  Which sucks, but… I’m sure you’ll still like the pattern!

Soon, I’ll tell you some super exciting news… about something uber cool I’ll be “assisting” with.

    Glad that NYC is treating you well! I’m excited to see the new sock pattern that you’re working on. Don’t be discouraged that someone else already made something similar – just think of it that you had an idea what was so wonderful that others were doing it as well. YOU still designed your own sock pattern, and that’s something to be proud of!

    I just cast on my first pair of socks tonight, so maybe I’ll be able to try it out sometime soon.

    Bringing parents to Spring Awakening is something that must be done. Parents need to grow up and face the realities. The fact that a play written in 1890 resonates today with topics that are so forbidden in the US means everyone must be a part of the conversation. Spring Awakening lays the foundation for that conversation between kids and parents. A difficult conversation for some of us, but necessary.
