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.”

Let’s think this through
Thinking through the ramifications and risks of making money off of my jewelry hobby, I finally settle on what makes most sense, to me.
What have I been doing?
A free-write focused on finding my way along an Information-based career path and an avocation of writing. Discusses the influence of the book, _Me, Myself, and Us_, by Brian R. Little (2014).

When I first began online learning (years ago), I was a bit shocked that I had to resort to analog recording methods outside of the computer. ItContinue reading “Business vs Art”
Diversity of Motives
Over the last 11 years…I feel like I’ve been through a lot where it comes to seeing and acknowledging economic philosophies. This largely relates to aging and having to acknowledge the economic system in my area, in order to further my own independence. That is: over the past 11 years, I’ve been transitioning from beingContinue reading “Diversity of Motives”
Working out some priorities
It’s been about a week since I’ve posted anything substantive to this site. A lot of that is due to other calls to action going on in my life, which would…likely be apparent, from my last couple of posts. I myself have had to read back over this blog in order to get a goodContinue reading “Working out some priorities”
