A Less Convoluted Continuance

I can't help it, I have to post.

Today was going to be the day.

I was going to learn, come hell or high water.

I was going to KNIT!!!

Fearlessly, I entered Wal-mart and made my way to the fabric section. I was as the intrepid explorers of old, scouting new lands and territories. But my heart quivered within me as I gazed upon the rows of yarn and knitting needles. Where would I ever start? I was lost - afloat in a sea of soft wool. Avast!

A Convoluted Beginning

Well, hello there. Allow me to introduce myself:

Name: Rin

Age: 20

Location: USA

Faith: Christian, Nondenominational

Political leanings (unofficial): Conservative Libertarian

Status: Betrothed (hehe, I like that word and its connotations)

Occupation: College Student for most of the year (Almost a Senior! Whoo!). I also work in the college costume shop helping make the costumes for the various theatre productions. I love it there. My second job is summers and holidays only as a secretary for an emergency room; not so thrilled about that one - but it brings in the green.

Hopes for the future: To marry my lover, settle down, maybe find a quickie job somewhere 'til we have kids, then settle down even more and become a full time homemaker.

I can't think of any other little tags to put, so I'll just have to reveal myself through my future posts!
