Today was very busy, and I questioned whether I would be able to complete the goals I set for myself today. Plans were turned upside down due to a late work adjustment, yet I still managed to complete the crafts I set out to do. There are still a couple displays in the room to complete, and it never feels enough. I guess it should give more inspirstion to for ideas.
I would also love to create more poetry, ones that revolve around love and friendship. I’m glad that I’m writng daily in 2018, and now it’s time to create more material around the content.
A new week, a fresh start on my woven path. Today I was determined to take on the tasks at work that was too time consuming first. That way I can focus on my craft displays, which need some extra love. My goal for tomorrow is to address two areas in the room that need tending to.
I’m learning that creativity flows more easily when I’m hard at work. I can flesh out an idea as I go along, tinker with it, until I have it just right. Tomorrow will be another day of tinkering, and it will be lovely to see what emerges.
Truly a day for relaxation. It’s bitterly cold, yet my fiance and I had an appointment with an allergist this morning. The results were negative for a possible shellfish allergy, and I am very relieved by this news. The rest of the day was spent in a warm home, reading ‘American Gods’ and searching for classroom materials. I’m a quarter of the way into the book. It’s quite interesting…a story set in modern times, with mythology blended in. Looking forward to seeing what happens next.
This evening we’re going to a goth club for more relaxation, and drinks. It will be even colder, but I haven’t been to QXT in a couple months, and I need the escape for a couple hours. It’s good to revisit goth music spots.
So, I did it…at work I voiced a concern that was really bothering me for a few days now. After the discussion, I felt a split second of regret, followed by relief. Speaking my mind at work was something that I would have never done a year ago. Doubt has taken up residency in my mind for far too long, and I’m tired of it.
While I still have many things to complete in my room, I’m relieved that I had the chance to speak. I can only hope that my opinion will be taken seriously.
Today brought a snow storm that worsened as the day wore on. Our center had a delayed opening, yet the issue of it being open at all today remained as the winds and snowfall gained strength. We were all relieved when the center closed early.
When I got home, I took an extended nap. Perhaps it was from me working non-stop and rising early, but I truly needed the rest. My dreams during that nap were quite strange though…I was back at work, and numbers were strewn across the floors. Forts of every creation were arranged down the halls.
I guess my dreams are calling to my creative side, to get more connected with this other part of myself. Work has certainly awakened my creativity. Now it’s just the need to branch out.
I really do take a long time getting things done. As I work in my room, finishing up art projects and planning more, along with making the classroom ‘theme-ready’, I realized that I take very long to get tasks done. I do run a class alone, so watching toddlers while getting a room ready is quite eventful! I am glad with what I’ve accomplished these past 3 days, so that’s a positive direction. Working slowly also means that I catch meaningful details. I can only hope that it will work out well in the end.
