First Day of the Month Meme 2007

Having been tagged and given a letter by Julie, I now present... ten topics, truths, themes, or thingamabobs that begin with the letter A

The year began ostentatiously with, of all things, a meme.

OK. Quick update before I settle in for Can't Miss Thursdays.

Brief update on a college class project, nothing exciting.

Oh, Thank God. Midterms are over and it's FINALLY spring break.

Was I tired? Five classes? Gee, I dunno.

Yeah, I'm still alive out here. School is kickin' my @$ this week.

Again with the school posts. Can we say redundant?

Just to let you all know I'm still breathing—it's finals week.

Apparently school consumed the first half of 2007.

How weird is this? Through blogroll links, I found myself on WoolGirl's site looking at yarns and patterns and...

I found the pattern for the first project I'd ever knit.

Sound of footsteps running down the street outside my window.

Cue ominous music. No, don't. It was a kid. It was a short funny post. I'd forgotten all about it until this meme lead me back. I LIKE PIE!

My stash?

Rhetorical question. Aimed at myself. Organization forced me to realize the vastness of my stash exceeded the space allotted for its storage and I was aghast.

OK. Things have progressed enough that I feel it's safe to pass along a tiny clue as to the nature of the Big Secret.

This is when life definitely got interesting with the arrival of Rocker Boy, imported directly from Omaha. But who departed for points south due to job prospects (lack thereof) five weeks later. *sigh*

And here they are.

Someone finally remembered that blogreaders like to look at things and posted FO pictures.

All right, so there used to be 10 months.

Brain says, "If Sept = 7 and Oct = 8 and Nov = Nine, then why...?"

Well, I was going to post an entry about my experiments with the affirmation MP3 that I created for myself, but... I needed to edit.

And here we are. In Law of Attraction land.

It's been an interesting year, that's for sure. I think in my case the first sentences of every month barely allude to the themes of the months (except perhaps the first five because they were all school-focused) because I've taken you down some heavy duty roads along the way and the first lines belie that.

Well, thanks for stopping by and reading this. I apologize for abandoning the photos and for rambling on endlessly at times—I know, I shouldn't apologize, it's my blog to write as I wish, but, I do like to be considerate. Hopefully I've made a few impressions and have provided thoughts to ponder. Gee, it kind of sounds like I'm closing the doors here. I'm not... but I've noticed the focus has shifted from knitblogging and cats to more serious topics and mental things.

During the next few days I'm going to mull over whether to keep Knitty Banter as my focus, or make a change—although I still engage in fibery activities from time to time, I've developed an obsession with the Law of Attraction. It seems to pop up in my posts far more often than knitting does. So maybe an overhaul is in order.

Don't worry, if I "move", you will all be invited to the new hangout. It's just a thought. I'm pretty good at multitasking. Keeping several blogs going is no big deal. I just feel like I've become an impostor in the knitblog world by maintaining a knitblog that talks about everything BUT knitting. I feel like I should be sharing FOs—which I would if I had any to speak of, or stash enhancement—which I would if I were actually buying something other than Peaches & Cream for Christmas, but I've been sorely amiss.

Have a great holiday, and we'll see where this road leads. Either way, 2008 is GONNA BE GREAT!

It's fun to look back over the year...and gives one cause for thought. Good luck with the bloggy decisions. Whatever you decide to do with it, I will always be a loyal reader!

I think the "Banter" part is all the stuff you write about other than knitting! Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!

I agree with Robin. I suppose it's nice to segregate your life, but why? Readers can skim and I for one enjoy a mixed bag blog.
