It’s June, and that means two things:
1. Vacation time!
2. Giveaway winner!
Let’s start with no. 2. My last post got 5 comments (the 6th being from me). I used the random number generator and got the number …4! The fourth comment was from siperoinen, congrats! If you are on Ravelry, please send me a message there with your mailing address (my username -big surprise- is vi0let). Otherwise you can email me at vi0letin @ yahoo.com.
In other news, I did indeed turn in my thesis yesterday. I now feel like I were 14 again, giddy with the freedom of summer at the end of a school year.
At the same time, I have been plagued by nostalgia for the most ordinary things. The ladies’ toilets at the university main building (how I have despaired at the writings on the walls over the years)! The smell of wood, dust and coffee in lecture halls; my favourite teacher’s story about what’s wrong with Heroes (repeated ad nauseam); the vegan banana cake at the cafeteria…
I will, of course, have to make corrections to my thesis, but not until my advisor has had time to read it. For now, I’m free as a bird.
I have very exciting things coming up in June (partly planned as a carrot for finishing my thesis) and some are knitting-related, so stay tuned. I have also some projects to blog about, but I think I will save them for next time. Have a nice weekend everyone!
