Pros and Cons of Graduation

So as much as I am looking forward to graduation, I am not looking forward to graduation.

There are so many unknowns right now, and well, after graduation, the number of said unknowns will increase exponentially. Some days I'm fine and some days I'm a mess.

However, there are many things I'm looking forward to, like being able to do things I want to do. I have a huge list of books I want to read.
I love crafty things, especially beading. I haven't been able to bead in a really long time. Right before I came out here I began to learn how to throw pots. I'm not very good, but it was fun and I miss it. Don't even get me started on photography (again, I'm not very good, but it was fun).

However, I have been introduced to something receiving more press as of late.
What is this you may ask?

Plastic bag recycling.

Apparently, you can use plastic bags as yarn and crotchet things with it, or you can make "fabric" by fusing 6 bags together with an iron. Then you can use this fabric to "make" a more sturdy bag.

I am REALLY excited by this. I miss crafty things... I'm ready to graduate, so that I have some free time.

Instructions for the "fabric" method is here.
Instructions for the "crotchet" method is here.
Thanks to Lifehacker for the instructions.
