current location: my bedroom
current mood: scared
I am an awful person! Yes. It is true!
I simply have not looked at a computer in a very long time. But I am biting back my fear of being sucked back into this way of life (because... that's what it ends up being) and will begin to manage my time wisely. Wisely!
SO. A little about me. (Again.) I work at Wal-Mart! It's not very fun. It actually kind of sucks! But it pays my meager bills.
I have a boyfriend who is much older than me! I get picked on a lot for this, which also kind of sucks, but that doesn't matter because I like him a lot, and he likes me a lot, and there is a very good chance that he's not leaving any time soon because if we broke up he would drink himself to death. (That is something we're working on!)
I am not currently going to school! This just plain sucks.
At the moment I'm trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. I think I want to go somewhere local for a year, make a mind-blowing portfolio, send it to an art institute, have them pay for my schooling, and live happily ever after! (It's not a refined plan, but it is better than nothing!)
I don't know what I want to go to school for. I just want to get in at this point. That's not so good! I've been trying to narrow down what exactly I like to do and what I would like to spend my life doing. I haven't figured it out yet. I like working with my hands. I like working with fabric, and paint and paper, and yarn.
I've decided that this journal is now going to keep tabs on everything I am making with my hands. Every acheivement will be recorded here, to help build my esteem and help me figure out what I want to do in the long run. I will be crocheting, quilting, sewing, drawing, art-ing! I'm going to try and work on my deviantart account too. :(
At the moment I am working on!
A crocheted granny square afghan for my boyfriend. It's half done, and I just realized that I've been doing it wrong! This project is on hold due to severe disappointment.
A quilt inspired by a game, for the quilting challenge on craftster.com. It will focus on Zelda, which I have much love for.
...I am pretty ashamed for not coming back in so long! And I am also ashamed at my extensive use of exclamation marks in this entry!
