Ouch, that hurt.

Okay, so I've completed the exam. Rather, I'm done with the exam. Taking the exam this time was just a confirmation to myself that I need to move on. There was no way, without some sort of divine intervention, that I was going to pass. And that's okay. It's not for everyone, and certainly not for me. That doesn't even mean that I won't be getting a PhD. It just means I won't be getting this PhD.

I'll have a Masters Degree in Mathematics. Now, off to find a job!

On a side note, my mom and I have been making a dollhouse for the annual auction at Frank's school. It's just the sweetest thing. I've been knitting some mini bedspreads for the beds.

I'm afraid I have the knitting bug and now I wonder how people who love to knit ever manage to do anything else. It's a bit consuming. So much so that even the most basic things like fixing a meal become a bit of a bother because they cut into knitting time.

Change is exciting and painful all at the same time.

Real Quick

Here's where I'm at...

1) the exam has been moved to Feb. 21, not that it helps.
2) I've been applying for jobs, no interviews yet.
3) The boy and I have been terribly sick.
4) Mike and I went to Hotel Thayer for Valentine's Day party, very romantic.
5) Look at this
You can see more at xkcd.
6) I joined Ravelry, it's completely awesome.
