Present

It’s been a roller coaster here the last couple of weeks. Work changes and turmoil (don’t worry, no firings or anything, just lots and lots of change in the air) along with personal busy-ness and, probably, delightful female hormones have thrown me off quite a lot, but I’m doing okay. Mostly. Yesterday, on the way [...]

Daydreaming

I’ve been struggling lately, in case my infrequent, depressed posts didn’t make that clear. It’s not that I’m perpetually unhappy; it’s that the black hole of despair seems to be so much closer than before and I have to work so hard not to get sucked in (yes, I have a therapist, although it’s been [...]

Craving

I’m full of things I cannot say and they are bubbling inside me, making me want to scream with the misery that is being an adult who tries to be sensitive to others and make her way reasonably smoothly through social interactions. So. I need to mosaic. I need to do something that has no [...]

Crafting

I’ve been in a creative slump lately – crafting, writing, and anything that actually takes independent thought or motivation have gone down the tubes. I blame it in part on school burn out and, of course, also on the rather hideous spring weather we’ve had in Seattle, where it feels like autumn instead of June. [...]

My Mosaic Obsession

This is my first mosaic, created during a day-long workshop at Seattle Mosaic Arts, probably the best money I’ve spent on crafting in a LONG time, except that it has now created an obsession that keeps me up at night, wondering what to create! I haven’t had time this semester to do more that this [...]

Insomnia

The temptation to write “Sleepless in Seattle” for insomnia-related posts is overwhelming. Alas that it would feel so trite if I were to do so… I could NOT get to sleep last night. I went to bed around 9:30 and just tossed and turned. My pillows were too slippery. My brain wouldn’t turn off. Under [...]

Bleh

Part of the reason I’m wanting to do the silhouette/crazy quilt of myself mentioned in my last post? I’m really DULL. Seriously. I have so many fantastic friends who dress fabulously and create magnificent things…and then there’s me. Blah. Boring, brown, and very same-y. It’s seriously depressing (and I’m on flipping antidepressants!).

Five Interests Meme – Part 2

I got my first troll yesterday. Woohoo! I feel like I’ve undergone an initiation or something… No, I didn’t approve the comment. I don’t need anyone outside of my own skull giving me bad messages about myself. I do plenty of that on my own. *** And now for something completely different, the continuation of [...]

In search of the fabulous

It’s been so long since I last dieted (five and a half years and counting…) that the whole notion that not everyone feels the way that I do about the uselessness of calorie-counting and weight-watching can come as a surprise.  Knowing that I’m actually in the very small minority is even more bizarre, especially as [...]

Restless

I’m feeling restless again, for no very good reason. I want to do something. Something creative, something crafty, something expensive; I want to spend, spend, spend and have lots of brand new THINGS to play with. This feeling confuses me because, for the life of me, I can’t quite figure out where it comes from. [...]
