Weekly Resolutions!

- Finish making Jill's necklace
- Send Jill her package!
- Finish custom order from Etsy!
- Drop off Bliss's birthday gift!
- work, work, work
- This week I just want to try something new! This is my new goal, although I am not sure what it will be.

My weekly resolutions have been really lax lately.. sorry if they seem a bore. One of my best friends from high school, who I haven't seen since high school, bought somethings off my
Etsy shop. So I have decided to make her alittle something extra, because I really sort of miss her. Although we have definitely grown apart.. I think it is so strange how that can happen, but it seems to.. I am not sure if it is caues I have changed so much since then or if life just does.

This week is my friend Bliss's birthday. She has just gotten into embroidery and cross stitch.. so I had sneaky plan. I told her boyfriend to get her a starter kit at
Sublime Stitching, cause I don't know if it is me but when I was starting out it was very frustrating.. Although I started cross stitch many years back, it always made it more worth the trouble if it was a cool design. So he got her that, I got her a stylus and some carbon paper, and I am going to grab a crap load of thread for her. So I hope the presents combine will be pretty ultimate. I just want to encourage her, I let her borrow my Subversive Cross stitch Book, hoping it was also peek her interest! Yea, I pass on crafts like they are crack!

Work has been wearing me thin.. So I have pretty much come to the conclusion that I am just going to take out a student loan.. I am so tired of working in the food industry, and unfortunately having very visible tattoos.. my options are limited. But I am very ready to be doing something more relax and something I might actually enjoy.

I want to try something new this week.. Although I am not sure what I should do, but I think it is good to spice things up.. maybe I will knit a scarf. I mean it actually gets fairly cold up here, and I don't have a super cute one. Last year I knitted a very nice one for my mother, I really liked the way it turned out, I think I might do something similar.

Also I know it seems like I haven't been crafting much.. it is because I have been working a lot. And I am still turning away shifts it seems like everyday. I just can't be there doing doubles everyday.. six days in a row is a enough! Me and Lee went out last night with one of his friends.. he seems like a really cool guy, and it was nice to have someone stop by our place for once.

I did add this little piece to my
etsy shop!
It is only $7.00

good for you for going back to school! just don't go to hair school because then you feel like a failure and have 235872938532 dollars in student loan debt. you deserve better than to be working some shitty job and being all stressed out. plus you should totally be able to get money from the government to pay for a big chunk of school!

Congrats on reconnecting with your friend from high school! Stories like that are awesome. Stay positive!

Man, props to you for having done the full time/work school thing so long. I definitely agree with you that a loan is a good idea. Helps you focus on getting through school so you can get out the other end to make the real money. And the extra nice thing is that most loan programs will sit down with you afterwards to make a payment plan that works for you. Good luck!

I HIGHLY hiiiighly recommend going something career wise that you'll love. Take the plunge and do it! I've made it a new goal to never have a job that I dont' like. I'm refusing to even apply for one that I won't enjoy. Why? Whether we admit it or not, our jobs are our lives. We spend all day there and so it's worth it to love what we're doing.

That's my rant for the day :D

Love your stuff girlie!!

Katie Kutthroat said...

that is very true.. and i hate the job i have now. i am not sure i will love what i am going to do but surely it will be better! thank you!! :)
