Chains: fun and tedious

I’m not used to the time change just yet. Maybe if I had to get up at regular hours I would. I’m still finding myself looking out the window, seeing the sun, thinking of all the things I can do in the day and then suddenly realizing that I have to leave for class.

So… I am out of food because the grocery trip I was going to fit in before class didn’t happen. The good thing is that during silver class I’m so absorbed in whatever I’m doing that I don’t usually realize that I’m hungry.

I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to do with this chain I’ve made. It’s actually two pieces because I didn’t have time to solder them together and also managed to melt a couple of the links that were supposed to join them together. Maybe I’ll make some more. Today was the last class, so I’m going to have to find the torch heads I’m missing at home.

For a while I considered turning them into dangly earrings. I held them up to my ears and they seemed to be a good length, either as long chains or held in half. But once I started moving my head around they made a noise.

I’m sure that if I ever wore them the sound and the swinging would drive me nuts. This is not so much because they dangle, but because wearing them would make me flick my head around far more often. It’s like when you have a bruise and you’re compelled to poke it repeatedly even though you know it hurts. I’m sure I’m not the only one that does this.
