Maybe I should make it a priority to get back to this site, and my beadwork — for my own sake.
Category Archives: jewelry
I think I’ve decided what I’m going to do with the beadwork thing. I’ve written before about the differences between hobbies and businesses, avocations and vocations. I came to the serious realization today that maybe I really would be best off as a hobbyist, where it comes to my beadwork: giving jewelry away as gifts;Continue reading “Resolution?”
This is a commentary upon and expansion past the worries I expressed about 6 weeks ago. I tend to be a very anxious person. It’s obvious enough if you know me in my day-to-day life, or if you catch me in the middle of an anxiety flare-up. Generally, as a writer, I’ve tried to keepContinue reading “Clarification”
Daily Reflection: #002 — Respite
All things considered, I suppose I’m doing well. That doesn’t mean anything objective, however; last night I experienced symptoms of the beginning of a depressive episode. But given everything that’s been happening, the fact that it wasn’t more extreme, and that it is less severe today, is something to be glad about. I have personallyContinue reading “Daily Reflection: #002 — Respite”
This built up. I’m sorry.
It has been way too long since I’ve posted here. I (still) feel kind of guilty writing this post, as I know I have other, much more pressing, things to do — like clean the bathroom, vacuum and dust the bedroom, change the bedsheets. It’s the beginning of the new year, and I know IContinue reading “This built up. I’m sorry.”
Yeah…maybe I kind of love design.
I was able to start reworking the design practice piece that fell apart in my last post. I’m not referring to the black and fuchsia set that I photographed; I’m referring to the green and topaz set that broke as I was making it. I didn’t photograph it — it isn’t a habit of mineContinue reading “Yeah…maybe I kind of love design.”
Doing what I want to do
I am, bit by bit, getting used to getting back to the computer and not associating it with classwork. Granted that I did do some reading today, for class: I just stopped at the end when it was starting to get into a giant infodump, as these books tend to do. I wasn’t in theContinue reading “Doing what I want to do”
Routine Log #6: Deeper Into Design
I’m guessing, at this point, that this is going to be a relatively informal post. I started to write it to my regular blog (kodecy), but in all seriousness, I’ve been posting most of my beadwork information to this one. Unfortunately for my readers, I have not been comfortable enough yet to take pictures ofContinue reading “Routine Log #6: Deeper Into Design”
Right now, I’m writing — partially — because I don’t know what to do with myself. It’s not that there aren’t things to do; it’s that, well, I’ve spent the last two weeks, intensely studying difficult material. This was to the detriment of almost everything else: including my writing, self-care, cooking, and care of theContinue reading “Brainstorming”
Cosas importantes y cosas que no son importantes
Beadwork and writing — two of my most beloved crafts — are taking a back seat to the more pressing question of self-sufficiency and personal financial independence. I have decided on a career path, finally; but what place do these things I now call, “hobbies,” have in my life?
