I did it

by ysoldateague March 06, 2006


the essay is done. It’s not the greatest essay on Paradise Lost ever (clearly I didn’t expect it to be). But I’m relatively happy with it.That’s almost besides the point. This is the first time in my entire time as a student where having two things due in at once hasn’t completely screwed me and my work up. Every C I’ve ever gotten has been because that piece suffered because I had another to do.
And now sitting on my desk are two pieces of work with cover sheets stapled to the fronts and cds for each on top of them. This makes me very satisfied. They’re done on time.

Yes I have been up all night. My next goal is to do this without staying up all night. But it’s a start, right? They’re done on time at least.

So on time in fact that I now have 3 hours to kill before I have to get ready for my class. Rosa calls, seriously she’s sooooo pretty. I’m about an inch into the beads and keep stopping to admire it.

A little less invisible

This post first appeared on Whitney’s own blog and she kindly allowed us to share it with a wider audience. It has truly brought me so much joy to see knitters making and wearing their Joy mitts and, via a knitting project, feeling seen and visible. I know that Whitney’s experiences of what it means to choose to be visibly bi would resonate with many of you. Thank you for sharing your story with all of us Whitney.

An Open Letter to White Makers & Designers Who are Inspired by the Kimono and Japanese Culture

Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.

Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
