I couldn't resist! Instead of going on holiday or visiting my family during the term break at Hogwarts, I decided to take on summer job. Yes, I'm the Ravenclaw Prefect at HSS4. I know, I know, I should be resting and recharging, but it's so much fun to make socks for other people. I have a great partner and she has definitely been teasing me. I'm having such a hard time deciding on a pattern for her. I start one and then find another one I like better, so I start that. I really must make a decision!

I Did the Best I Could

I recently had a very bad week, a week where nothing went right, nothing seemed to get accomplished, nothing felt good. I was beating myself up over it, since I am without a doubt my own worst critic. I was definitely deep in the blues. One of my professors saw that I was unhappy and she gave me some very good advice. She told me that even when I have a bad week...bad day....bad remember that I did the best I could at that moment in time. I lean toward being a perfectionist and I disappoint myself more often than not. So I loved my professor's advice. I did the best I could at that moment in time!
