The last few nights I've been having more trouble than usual falling asleep. Usually, I'll stay up a bit, get tired and go to bed. But the last few days I've just been straight awake. I have to force myself to go to sleep. Right now, as I'm writing this, it's 4:15 in the morning. It's pitch dark in my room, quiet, good temperature, comfortable, but not sleepy.
On another note, I've been learning several different topics lately: statistics (formal online class via my local college), Japanese speech (not going well, using a book/cd combo, no software), and sewing. Sewing is the one I am particularly interested in. I do know enough sewing to get things done, but I want to know enough to sew projects with confidence. So I checked out "Sewing for Dummies" from the library, which acts like a workbook, where you read through, learn, and do specific activities to gain experience. Hopefully, soon I'll be churning out those hoodies, plushes and cosplays. Japanese is just something I want to compliment my love of anime and manga. I've always wanted to be fluent in another language, but I've never spent the time to actually LEARN it. Statistics is a b*tc#! I'm only taking it because it transfers and I need it for my nutrition degree. Not only is it a completely online class, but it also is in a condensed semester, meaning twice the work due. Luckily, it's almost done. I just gotta study for the final and write out a study guide for myself, and share to the rest of the class.
Work is taking over my time. Either I'm at work or chilling because I'm finally NOT at work. Tomorrow, my plan is to work on studying and making that study guide. Then, when I FINALLY get home, I will clean my room. My room is a disaster. And I'm not exaggerating with that. When I finally get my room decent, I plan to try to get a table in there for my cosplay/sewing projects. Possibly even work on the actual sewing room since it has become even worse than my room and being used as a storage room that we literally throw stuff into because the family cannot get into it.
I'm considering taking my logo I need a sticker of (for my cosplay) to a custom printing place, see if they can do a good job with it, since I'm horrible at it. I also need to buy navy blue pants and a red sports watch. Then, I need to style my wigs for cosplay and get myself a hair cut.
Too many things to do, not enough time! Plus, I've been yard sale-ing on Saturdays.
