Home Away From Home

There is so much I want to say. The last month or so has been crazy. My lovely internship at an urban farm has taken up the bulk of my time 3 days out of my week. Much of it has been good but I’ve had hard days. I have had a lot of fun…… Continue reading Home Away From Home

March Stitch Updates

Spring is finally here, thank goodness. I don’t think I got much cross stitching done. My heart wasn’t as into it after having a lot of real life stuff on my mind lately. I stitched less but never forced myself when I didn’t feel like doing it. My last update posts: February 2019 January 2019…… Continue reading March Stitch Updates

February Stitch Updates

Bye bye February and hello March! Here’s another post to update on my cross stitch projects. Most notable is that I added blue beads to the cloth. Some of them are in the fairy’s hair wreath but most were sprinkled around the castle globe and her necklace. The stitch chart called for a type of…… Continue reading February Stitch Updates

I was never the person to join clubs or involve myself in after school activities, all because I didn’t know how to talk to people. Or was too scared to try. During weekdays I had school as an excuse…… Continue reading Feeling Lost

Last Hooray of 2018

It’s the last day of 2018. I am excited and scared of being present for another 365 days done and over with, and of the anticipation of all the happiness and pain that may follow into 2019. I feel lost every year. I don’t know if I am as aimless as I was at the…… Continue reading Last Hooray of 2018
