Fourth Doctor Scarf

Good evening everyone! And happy Thanksgiving (if you celebrate it)!

So my SO is a big fan of Doctor Who (as I have become), and he looks an awful lot like the Fourth Doctor. So, inspired by my wonderful roommate, who made a scarf for herself last year, I started in on a scarf for my SO's 24th birthday gift. It was a long, and very hard process, but I am so proud of myself! The finished project is lovely, he likes it, and I feel very accomplished. (:

Here are some pictures - I think they came out quite well.

The Uncanny Review

The UncannyThe Uncanny by Sigmund Freud
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I mostly was interested about the article on the uncanny itself. While Freud proposes several interesting thoughts, particularly about what separates the uncanny from what is generally considered to be frightening, I find that he makes generalizations that don't account for the fact that not everyone is the world is a middle class Austrian (like he is).

Bookcrossing Once More

Good afternoon everyone!

My internship ended a bit early today, and since Amadeus is at my dad's house currently (poor baby got neutered), I thought I would run some of the books I have waiting to be released there to the Little Free Library down the street!

In doing so, I have now registered 100 books and released 57. Isn't that awesome? One of my bucket list goals is to release 100 (and I'm sure I'll hit that number!). It feels so good to be sharing books with others. I checked in the LFL and none of the books I left last were still there! I hope the readers are enjoying them.

I left my camera at my apartment, so unfortunately I can't share any pictures (but I may post again later today for a project I am working on, so stay tuned!) but I was pretty excited and just had to share.

There's still room in the LFL, so I think I will try and cram more books in there so I don't feel so bad about having gone so long without dropping any off. One day I hope to have a Little Free Library of my own so I can share books with the world.

Speaking of bucket lists, I think I might write one up and do updates as I accomplish the things on my list! It would give me a reason to blog more and maybe it would help motivate me to do the things on the list! We'll see.

Anyway, if you want to see which books I released, check out the Bookcrossing widget to your right!
