Low Down on My Goin’ Downs

I feel like a stranger in a strange land, in the world of wordpress that is. It’s been a while since I last blogged but only because it’s a new year. For me, that means a new semester (and my last one at that!) new music, new hobbies and new attempts to test my will power – aka my new year’s resolutions.

I’m a busy-bee most of the time.. this semester proves no different. For the most part, I’m still engaged with OSU through my final semester as both a student and employee. When I’m not working or schoolin’ it, which isn’t very often, you can probably find me playing zookeeper or fashioning various projects at wee hours of the morning. I have quite the spread of animals but just so you know, I consider my rambunctious roomates animals as well.. I think they would concur.

Anyhow, I’m pretty excited about the new fun I’ve been conjuring. Like jewelry! I’ve always made jewelry but jewels that are none too special; however, now that I know how to make hemp jewelry I beg to differ. Hemp is some really cool stuff and quite a ball to play with by the way. Another pleasant past-time I’ve taken up is the wonderful art of dreamcathing. I’ve always admired the dreamcatcher and it wasn’t until recently I heard if you don’t make it yourself, then it doesn’t work. It’s not like I was having bad dreams.. just wanted to learn the trick of the trade. Now I can make all kinds of pretties to give to my people near and dear. In my opinion, these cherished people are exceptions to the whole dreamcatching concept.

Sadly, the crafting had to take a back seat when school began. Aside from my final PR class, I’m taking French II, backpacking & hiking and Asian philosophy… tough but worthy. I couldn’t be more excited to learn these new skills. Speaking of learning, within the next few months I will be trying my hand with needles. I’m going to learn how to knit and crochet!

Aaaah, I could be a student forever. In fact, I will be.. my semester may be ending but I will continue to grasp and grow in this whirlwind of life. So for the next few months, I will be placing myself in a multitude of things but alas.. I’ll be sure to blog about it. After all, that is one of my new year resolutions.
