Happy Cake Day to Me!

11 Apr

Yay! I’ve now been around for a quarter of a century and it’s been pretty awesome.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, mom knitted and sent me this hat that I *just* got in the mail! I love getting mail. I love getting hand knitted things. Lookee here, at my most excellent new hat!

She made one for herself and promised me one as well, and this is it 🙂 I think she began doing an Ekaterin Slouchy Hat but ended up changing everything but the earflap construction and the cable pattern. I follow patterns to the letter, whereas she’s a fierce knitter and does what she wants! My brother’s approach to knitting is the same. Boatloads of respect to them 🙂 And I got this fabulous hat out of it ^^

Anyway, back to cake day things (i.e. studying).

      Thanks! 🙂 Oh definitely go for the hat. It’s just knitting – what’s the worst that could happen, right?

      You’re right. It definitely takes an effort, especially at first, to look on the bright side of things. But while it won’t magically solve every problem in life, it can make it easier to deal with things. I know I enjoy life so much more when I stop the negative thoughts.
