They bought me my very own pair of scissors at work because I’m a special snowflake. 
It’s actually because they had me cut out some things, and Julie found out, after worrying about my motor skills, that I’m a leftie trying to cut out hundreds of pieces of paper with right-handed scissors. So she sent this guy out to buy me some lefty scissors. They only had them in four-year-old size, so he bought two pairs. Maybe I can stick them together to make a real pair of scissors.

I bought a toast rack to use as a letter stand. The reviews online said that it was too narrow for toast, and that it would be perfect for letters, so naturally I screamed “PERFECT” at the computer screen and squirreled it away for myself. I dunno what kind of toast these other people are eating, but it looks like my toast fits perfectly. Or would fit. Yeah. Toast racks are exactly what I was looking for in a letter stand, not like the other ones that stack the letters or envelopes on little level-step-things.

Finally sent out my letter to Bonanna, but like a dummy, I forgot to take a picture of it! Luckily, she promised to take a picture of it for me. :D
That letter was a struggle, y’all (read: myself since no one reads this blog HELLO SELF). I lost the draft, redid it, lost that and my time sheet in one fell swoop, freestyled another letter, LOST THAT ONE TOO SWEET JESUS, and then I did another one and stuck it in the outgoing mail as soon as I got to work this morning. Hopefully, she’ll have it by tomorrow! ^-^
You’ll be pleased to know that I have finally submitted time sheets for the last two pay periods and now I will have money that will quickly be spent on textbooks and other things that make me cry.

I should’ve sent off a letter to one of my roomies AGES ago, but I’m just so very lazy. It’s ridiculous. Bonanna, if you’re reading this, I’m so sorry please don’t poke me with the cattleprodder!

Oh. Oh, yeah. I’ve got a blog here. Silly me.
Sewing update: I’ve got a dress in progress, Burda 7058, and the whole thing is in random pieces strewn across my room. I should probably most definitely get organized. I bought several sewing things: bobbin storage, a few machine feet, etc. and, genius that I am, I had them shipped to the wrong address and shipped them to campus instead of my house.
I went to go pick them up, but the post office was closed. I’ve personally never heard of a government post office closing just because at 11 am, but whatever. I know for a fact they’re there through the summer. I’ll just have to plot to get my things another way. D;
