Today (the 31st) is my birthday and I turned 35. I can’t believe how fast the past five years have gone, it seems like a few months ago that I was joking around about turning 30 and here I am, 35! I don’t freak out over getting older, it’s something that happens, everyone does it. I don’t have to like it, I’d be happy being 25 forever, but I can’t stop it so I may as well try to enjoy it. Honestly, my early twenties were pretty fun, my mid and late twenties sucked ass, my early thirties were ok, I have a feeling my mid-thirties are going to be much better. Five years ago I never would have pictured myself where I am today, in school, especially culinary school, and really trying to put my life back together.
As for this little blog, honestly, I feel like a craft blog is limiting and I don’t feel right expanding the focus of it here. I don’t really knit much anymore, I don’t have the extra money these days, mainly what I do revolves around school and reading and watching movies and just doing stuff with my friends. I’m getting back into fashion (which I think is from wearing my uniform all the time) and playing around with my hair and makeup. And cooking, lots of cooking. So I’m thinking about shuttering this blog and starting a new one. We’ll see, I’m going to try to make up my mind here in a few weeks. I’m too busy right now.
I went to a Halloween party Saturday but I don’t wear costumes (no money!) but I did wear a dress. I do own more than jeans and t-shirts and copious amounts of sweaters. Here I’m wearing a black button up shirt dress that I bought at Wal-Mart last year, it’s cotton and has a fitted top and a full circle skirt bottom, a pink cotton cardigan that I knit years and years ago, black tights and black flats. I need a better way to take pictures of myself than the full length mirror propped up against my desk. I’ll figure something out.
