Another project I started right before the trip, and finished when I got back, was a new purse. I made my current purse just over a year ago. And I still really like that pattern, as it holds everything I need, so I picked up some fabric and made the third installment.
Though the trip is done, my stress isn't gone yet. Tonight I have my final exam for the zookeeper class I've been taking since November. Passing this test, and thus the course, gives me the opportunity to be a keeper volunteer and also qualifies me to take the civil servant test and be considered for a paid keeper position at the zoo. Wish me luck!
