Here are some pictures of the most awesome vest ever. I finished this a month or more back, and that's when Santina helped me take these pictures (we need to get more creative with our picture taking, parking lot? porch?). It turned out REALLY nice, and it's very worm and just dorky enough. I love it. The yarn I used was definitely the right choice.
So the exciting news is that Santina and I are having a New Years Eve party at our apartment!!! I've never thrown a planned party before! The ones at 9th street don't really count - I don't think inviting everyone in GZ over to your house in a drunken haze qualifies as "planning." Tonight we're going to get decorations, snacks, and most importantly BOOZE. Our Newburgh friends are coming, and also Eric and Will and Steph! I'm SO EXCITED. I never do anything for New Years, so this is going to be really fun. I can't believe it's going to be 2007 already. I'm kind of stressing out, because I haven't bought all of my Christmas presents yet, but I don't really want to think about that.
Also, my company trip to Cancun is coming up soon as well, and I'm psyched. As far as work goes, though, I don't know. My new position here is going well and it's way better than my old one, but I still overall really don't like it. The cube life is pretty horrible when it comes down to it for me. I know the paycheck is nice and the 401k, health insurance and all that junk. But, the overall feeling that you just have no freedom really blows. I know I probably just sound like a cynical young person and that I should be more greatful of the kind of life I have and all that crap. This is how I feel, though, and I can't help it. The good part is that I still kind of feel like my life is up in the air right now, and that anything can happen. So that makes me feel a little better, and like I have more options. I just really want to find a job or something that I'll be happy to go to each day.
