I've gone from updating this thing regularly to being rather sporadic. The truth is, I've been feeling rather low the last couple of weeks. It might be because my sister's in Germany, but it also might be because this kind of life is taking it's toll on me. People often imagine that it's easy being unemployed and that you have time for yourself. The truth is that you're constantly on edge, waiting for the phone to ring. You have to always be available. And it's stressful.

This week the acceptance letters will be sent out. It's rather do or die, because I'm not sure I can take another year of this.

But I don't want to write about it. So, instead, meet Sessan, you guys. 

She's a kitty, if you can't tell. The kitty in my pattern book was black, but I wanted to do a white one. Since I was ordering the eyes for my Merlin figures (Merlin is done; I might upload pictures of him this week), I ordered blue eyes and pink noses. The noses turned out to be bigger than I expected; hopefully it works, though.

Her name is derived from the Swedish word 'prinsessan' (the princess) and my grandpa uses it as a cutesy nickname for me. But the real reason she's named this, is because my mum had a white cat with blue eyes when she was younger. I grew up with stories about this cat, so I felt it was kind of fitting.

Next time I post an amigurumi pic, it'll be Misaki - my harajuku girl :)

ps. If you haven't seen Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, you should. I watched it yesterday and it's very entertaining. If the Jim Carey scares you, think of the Meryl Streep and the Billy Conolly (I thought he was great in this one and Garfield 2). The wonderful Jane Lynch has a short cameo and Emily Browning had a better role in this movie than her latest film Sucker Punch. My opinion on Sucker Punch is that it's a fifteen-year old gamer's misogynist sex fantasy.

Long story, short: it's funny, it's clever and the cast is superb.

So, as per usual, I stole this from [livejournal.com profile] 38. I thought it might be fun to see if I could do it ^^ What she wrote about the challenge:
I'm challenging myself to watch 50 movies in 2011! Rules: - I have to see the whole movie. If I get into it 10 minutes late, it's okay but if I don't see it to the end, it doesn't count - Cinema, DVD, TV, everything's okay ^^ Let's see if I can do it, I will update this post whenever I watch a new movie!
