jheya: Um: The atomic symbol for confusion (Atomic confusion)
Fandom is a strange thing.

I used to dabble in it a lot, but I was never what you might call a prolific writer, and I ended up abandoning more projects than I ever managed to complete. I rather thought such days were behind me, as quite a number of years have passed since I last created anything I felt worth showing to anyone.

Even so, for the past week or so I've been gently nudging at things once more. There is one project in particular that... I don't quite know how to put it. It's unfinished, and it's been so long since I started the original incarnation that I know it can never be anything but unfinished. I can no longer write in the style I once did. I don't view that as a bad thing, just a...thing.

I'm probably not making very much sense.

The gist of it is that I seem to be writing once more. Very slowly, just a few lines here, a half page there, and I still don't know what will come of it. Heck, if by some miracle I actually manage to get to the end of the tale this time, I'm not even sure what I'll do with it, I'm so out of the loop.

I'm finding it soothing to set pen to paper, and watch the ink flow. That's good enough for now.

Dear Self,

You really need to stop forgetting your passwords for, well, everything. Even those you reset not a week before due to said memory fail. It's getting a bit silly.

Love,
Me

Oops.

Was it really all the way back in June that I posted in this journal? Apparently so, though from my point of view it doesn't seem like 5-6 months could possibly have whizzed past so quickly.

However, at some point in the intervening time, I seem to have gone from a state of knowing-how-to-knit-but-not-doing-so to a state of knitting-all-the-bloody-time. (And in a roundabout way, it's knitting that has lead to this entry. I've currently got a project soaking in a tub of water, and in a short while I'll be draining, rinsing, and then blocking it out. In the meanwhile, I'm killing time.)

I blame the resurgence on finally realising that, hey! There are lots and lots of really nice yarns out there. Ones that I had somehow completely failed to notice the existence of before (quite how I'm not sure, but shh, that's beside the point). And not only did these really lovely yarns exist, but I could now actually afford to buy them.

Fast forward a little bit of time, and I have managed to buy an awful lot of yarn and knitting equipment, have completed a few projects, and am in the middle of about four others. Not a huge amount of things to be working on at any given time by some people's standards, but a lot for me. The Boy is rather bemused by it all, heh.

And now it's about time for me to get started on the blocking. I'm a wee bit nervous, because though I've knitted a lot in the past, this is actually the first time I've ever tried to block a piece, as I didn't realise that I was meant to (again, quite how I managed to miss this...). Ah well, fingers crossed that it'll all go fine. :)

There is too much negativity floating around in my life, and whilst I cannot change how anyone else behaves, I can change how it all affects me.

I will not let it get to me.

There are other things going on that are really rather awesome, and are all coming together, complementing each other and going well. These are the things I have direct control over, and the things I should be focusing my time and energy upon. I do not need to be dragged down by others being needlessly unkind. I should just brush it off, and go about living life how I choose.

This life is my own, and I am justified in devoting my time to those I love and am loved by in return. I do not need to waste any of it on those who wish me ill.

Dear self,

The fact that you now have rather funny coloured socks is entirely your fault.

You even pondered the fact that it was probably going to end badly before you stuffed them into the washing machine, and yet still went ahead and did it anyway. Just because everything had been washed multiple times before does not mean that you were necessarily safe from mishaps, you foolishly foolish fool.

Love,
Me



Oh well. Could have been worse. If there's no way of salvaging them colour-wise, I can cope with the vague kind of purple-grey that white clothes take on when washed with black stuff. They're only socks, after all. For the most part other people don't even notice them as I tend to wear trousers. :)

It's a little strange to look at the clock and realise that it's only half twelve. It feels much later because (unusually for me) I have been up and fairly active since 8am, but I'm not at work!

This means that I've had the chance to have a leisurely morning coffee, tidy up a little (still a lot more to be done, but it's a start), run a load of laundry, catch up on my LJ/DW reading, and play some Animal Crossing as well. Said laundry is currently all hung up and drying, and I have an LJ entry that I've been meaning to finish writing for a few days...but I think that that can wait a while longer. It's far too lovely a day to spend entirely indoors, and so I am off to play in the sun and possibly get some shopping done as well. :D

I was going to wear a skirt/top combo out, but actually no. Dammit, I am going to wear my bright red dress and look fabulous as I spend far too much time in black, and I don't wear it nearly as often as I should. \o/

(after 3+ years, the Boy may finally be getting somewhere with convincing me that I have a nice figure/legs... ;))
