So, I've been trying to go back to full time at the non-art related company I work for for some time. I was told that they just didn't think there was enough work for me to do, and they didn't want me to get bored. Two days ago another department posted a position and I told my boss I was going to apply for it. Suddenly, I can come back plus get a nice raise. Funny how that worked. Now I just need to decide which department I would rather work for - my current one where I love my co-workers and am comfortable, but will have some down time, or the new department where the people are much older and stuffier, but where I will be kept constantly busy with absolutely no down time. It's more of a data entry type position then what I currently have. Both positions will pay the same, so I just need to decide if I want to learn something new. I have until tomorrow to let them know. I hate being bored, so the no down time sounds nice, but my current position will give me more of an opportunity to move up. AAARRRGGGG

I am supposed to be working on my thesis. I have a meeting with my advisor this week, and of course I have procrastinated up to the last minute. So now I am going to have to go in with 1/2 of what I was supposed to have written, and it won't be nearly as polished as it should be. I do believe that I am going to have to either meet with her more then once a month, or work out a deadline that I have to e-mail her my progress weekly, even if it's just a rough outline or notes. She won't need to necessarily read what I send, as long as I have the deadline in place.

I finally finished Chevrolace!

They are a little loose around the top of the leg, but I like them enough that I will deal with it. I have also started working on a new project. It's the Carie Cropped Flare-Sleeve Cardigan from Fitted Knits (both ravelry links). I am knitting it with Cascade Jewel, because the required yarn is WAY too thick for someone not built like a waif.

This is my first attempt at knitting math, so wish me luck! I know the picture stinks, but I'm hoping that if I make myself give updates I'll actually finish the project in a respectable amount of time. I'm all about the motivation.
