Silly Putty

I've just returned from my first day of classes after spring break, and I feel as if I haven't slept in months. Why is this? It could have something to do with the fact that I slept until noon every day of vacation and then had to get up at 8am today. I've done that bfore, though, and it hasn't bothered me too much.

No, I'm tired from worry and stress and anger. Going home this week should have been relaxing, or at least a break from my normal dreary school days. Instead, I found myself torn to pieces by my sister, house guest, and even sometimes my mom.

I guess I'm just upset at how bad things have gotten between family members. The constant drama is like a Delorean trip back to middle school. Ew. Broken-down doors, screaming and crying, and my sister throwing books (and one time, a roll of toilet paper) at my head. My thumbs are picked to bloody pulp, thanks to my long-time habit of shredding my own fingers in times of fear or stress.

I'm glad to be back at school. The end of the year is so close, and every time I think of it, I get a little sad. I got my room selection number today. I have to pick my classes for next year next month. Why did it all go by so fast? I'm going to go fill out a job application and then play with silly putty until dinner. Its nice to be here.

Cadbury Mini Eggs will be the death of me, I swear

I mean, I've blown through nearly a whole bag in two days. It'll be gone by the time I go to bed tonight. The 8 pounds I lost giving up soda will be back by the time spring break ends, thanks to my early Easter candy buying habits. Oh dear.

In lighter news (HAHA! Get it?), I'm home for break. It's been delightful, for the most part. I say "for the most part" because my sister's being as bitchy as ever, but I expected that, so I'm not really too upset. When I do feel down about it, I text Billy and he generally makes it better. My mortality rate for this week looks pretty good, all things considered.

I've been knitting like crazy. I've finished one hat, and I'm midway through another for my mom. My problem is that I want to make stuff for EVERYBODY. I don't have nearly enough skills or yarn to do this, so I'm freaking out a little bit.

Oh, and I need a Chia Pet by Friday...where am I going to find one? More about that later. Don't want to ruin the surprise, in case someone reads my blog, though I doubt it.

I'm going to go eat more mini eggs and continue Mom's hat. Woot!
