How does this train your concentration? Well, I had a Trigonometry final yesterday. I've spent the last week working on reviewing all I've learned over the last 6 weeks with a less than stellar results. It's hard to concentrate on formulas that have the same variables but in different areas when you really just want to scratch ...pretty much everything on the top 1/2 of your bod.
Calamine lotion works to a point, and there is no way I can have splotches of the stuff on while in public. People are waaay to judgmental and hypersensitive to anything that smacks of being less than 100% perfect. I've stayed home for the most part, trying to study and rest.
My final was as brutal as I expected and I tried my best. When I got home I sat there for a good 10 minutes scratching everything I could. Everyone tells you not to scratch but they have no flipping clue how good it feels and how intense the urge is to do so.
Now that my summer class is over, I'll be finishing up some prayer shawls for the church, as well as some odds and ends her on many knitting needles. That dogbone pillow, the deephaven cowl, a shawl made from sparkly stuff, and that sweater of Alex's.
Alex is..........well realizing that the Marines is a lot of physical work. He's probably going to bail on it before he even gets to Basic. Which ticks me off to no end as well as frustrates me. He thinks he's going to get a job quickly that will give him the $$ needed to be on his own. I told him that with only a HS Diploma that he's dreaming. Every day I pray to God that this child would listen to his Mother, take the things I say to heart and just do what needs to be done to enter the Marines.
And every day God ........and Alex ...........ignore me.
