I have had a hard time trying to balance work and sports, and school projects. Now, though, I believe I have it straightened out. Last night I did not have work or anything, and I just finished my book project, so I figured I would try to do something fun. Therefore, I went searching the fabulous Youtube, and found videos to learn how to crochet. I practiced my chains, and single crochet until around 1 am. Then, this morning, I got up and tried to tackle crochet a flower. Which I did, to my own amazement. It is certainly not the best, and I believe that next time I will leave off the back set of chains. I figure considering that I learned how to crochet within 2 hours I did an alright job. I tried to iron it...I don't think I will try that again.

Edit: Here is my second try, with a different type of yarn that I found, and without the back chains.

Also last night, I made another scrabble tile necklace. My friend's father wants us to sell the stuff I make at Clemson football games; I don't really want to, but I guess it could be fun! Anyway, he wanted a sample of something, so I made a tile with a tiger on it (since we can't use the tiger paw). Thought it was rather neat.

Last night I had the pleasure of renting a movie from those "dvd express" boxes at Bi-Lo. I love those things. Not to mention, I love the movie I rented. 21. Jim Sturgess has to be one of my favorite actors now. Anyway, in respect to the number 21, I have decided to do 21 things today, required or of my own choice. So here is my list:

1. Learn to crochet something.
2. Make more necklaces
3. Run
4. Read all of chapter 2 in my history book
5. Eat a sorbet
6. write at least 2 editorials for my summer project

10. Paint my finger nails

12. Organize stuff for school
13. Put an air freshener in my car
