Nothing makes you feel like you’re behind in the game of life than having your best friend buy a house. At age 20.
One of my best friends L just bought her own house. She works and goes to school full-time, and somehow has saved up enough money to buy a beautiful house, while paying for school out of pocket. My other friend M bought a house with her fiance a few months ago too. And here I am, living with my mom and boyfriend, just trying to make it through school. Oh, did I mention M is 20 too? I feel like a slacker.
Anyways, L is having a housewarming party on Saturday, and M and I were trying to figure out some cute housewarming gifts for her. That’s when I decided that I was going to knit her an afghan. In five days.
The pattern is pretty simple, but the last time I tried to knit an afghan, I got annoyed about halfway through and decided to turn it into a blanket for my dog. And that afghan took weeks, so I have no idea how I’m going to pull this off in only a few days. But, now that I’ve told M I’m going to do it, I can’t back out. This will be a challenge, but if I finish it in time, I will be absurdly pleased with myself.
Wish me luck!
Holly, not Hollie
