To Make

Tutorial found here via Off the Rack at Readymade Magazine

I want to make this necklace.  Perhaps a trip to Byzantium before the store closes for good is in order.  Anyone up for a little shopping excursion?

Existential Blahs

Indulge me for a moment.

So here I am, closer to 31 than 30 and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

My job is extremely stressful for me and has been for several months now.  It has me questioning my abilities at work and the qualities I have as a person (crazy, I know).

My doctor put me on an antidepressant three weeks ago because my mood is so effected by this stress.  Thankfully, it seems to be working.

Anyhow, I know I need a change.  I feel that people shouldn't dread their working life.  There has to be a way to merge the things that you enjoy in life and a job that pays the bills. 

Can someone please help me figure out what that is?

I feel like I'm faking it as an adult.  And yet, here I am in a career that I never imagined I would have and that I know I need to change for my own health's sake.

OK, enough of that.

Less self-indulgent and moody posts to be posted shortly.
