It's September...

In Vancouver, September is the month when you realize summer's already over and rain starts hitting down towards the city.  Of course... it also hints to the start of a brand new school year!  ... Excited?  Not really.

For the past three weeks, I've been trying to adjust back to my school life once again, and there was hardly any time for me to concentrate on crocheting.  Midterms are approaching yet I'm still on a bit of a holiday mood. =(

Here's an idea of what I've been up to in my lab class:

You're probably thinking... what in the world is this?!  It's actually an experiment for my lab where all students inoculate a couple bottles of media using sewage/pond water.  After that, we incubate it with light and wait for bacteria to grow! XD

Of course, my school life isn't all about being super nerdy. =P  I'm also involved with some student clubs on campus ~ For one of the clubs, there was an icebreaker last Friday and I was lucky enough to win a huge plush as a prize (the large one in the photo below)!

The doll was HUUUGE!  I think just the size of its head is comparable to 4x the size of mines! XD  I think it's supposed to be a hamster, but you can kind of argue against it... I seriously have no idea what animal it's supposed to be ~ =3

The Domo on top was won by playing a game at another club's icebreaker (UBC Dragon Seed Connection)!  I'm an exec for this club, so if you're a UBC student... you should JOIN and support the club! ^__^

Seeing the Domo plush, I thought to myself that it would be quite an easy project to make ~ Afterall, Domo is really just a rectangular object with some body parts and a face ~ and so I started my project and finished within two days:

I had some course material to study in between, so it really didn't take the whole two days to make the doll... probably around 2-3 hours per day. =)  I wanted to use a softer yarn to make it, but the only type of yarn that had the closest match to its brown colour was the yarn used in the shown photos.  Unfortunately I didn't have the time to go out and buy some yarn... otherwise I'd use yarn similar to the type I used for my Chibi and Chu Totoro!  Here's a close-up view of my completed Domo:

Domo's mouth is awfully big... so I thought I'd give it some props to match up with it ~ Donuts and cupcakes are some of the favorite desserts among Vancouverities! ;)
