Loops and Bands

Learning to make loops and bands... in leaps and bounds.. (I couldn't resist).

I gave in and joined the loom band craze.. Of course, I already knew about them before today (I try to stay up to date..), but hadn't really considered getting involved. My friend's little sister was into it, my younger cousins were into it... It seemed fun, but I thought about all the hobbies I already have, and how I neglect some of them for ages, and decided I just didn't really have time to add another one!

New Blog Coming Up

Hi all.. Sorry for my rather long silence - soon I shall back to blogging, hopefully regularly. In fact, I've got a new blog coming up (on the side - this one will still exist, too). My other blog will focus on my travels and my experience teaching English to little French kids, so stay tuned!
I now have three blogs - this one, the main one; my Lost in Linguistics blog about my language learning journey; and now, my travel/teaching blog. I will do my best to keep updating the main one regularly, but will also post travel and language specific posts on my other blogs.
Will provide links as soon as my first post is up!
