Tentacles on my Living Room Walls?

I. Must. Have. This.

I came across this amazing piece of embroidery by jemimah over at while looking through the Hoopla Swap for inspiration. I have had 3 empty embroidery hoops hanging on my wall for like 13 months now, with no idea what to do with them. Nooooot annnyyy moooore!
I have no idea how I'll attempt to make my own version of this yet, but I'm excited for the challenge...

I can haz business casual?

So this is my random attempt at doing "business casual".
(It is funny that this is the first picture of myself that I have posted on here because I don't EVER do business casual.)

Backstory: After many hours staring off into oblivion, contemplating the "WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIIIIIFFEEE??" question, I decided that I needed to start looking into big-girl jobs for after I graduate (I have 1 year left at my university).

But, GAH!
There are so many things you have to do like:
Workshops! Internships! Mentorships! Career fairs! Career advising! More workshops! Resume workshops! This-is-why-you-suck-but-we-can-help-you-maybe workshops!
And soon I found myself in that last workshop, with a very prim woman insisting that I learn how to dress business casual.

Business casual?
But I thought I'd give it a try.
The blazer is my roommate's, white shirt is thrifted, and everything else is from Target. (Seriously, EVERYTHING else... o_O )
And, I'm not gonna lie; I not going to wear those shoes. I have a chronic heel problem (that is, a problem with the shoes, not a medical problem lol) which I am sure I will divulge later in this blog, but I never wear heels.
Yep business casual is like living a lie, but you do these things when you are trying to be a grown up.

And it sometimes it definitely feels like you are wading through your quarter-life-crisis with nothing but a pair of swim trunks and some water wingies but.....
at least the water is only neck deep?

Water wingies. Now on my wishlist.

But now I must abscond, for the apartment on top of mine is getting new carpet installed and the noises emanating from above sound like the apocalypse is coming.

Uhh... is this thing on?

So this is my blog. My NEW blog to be particular. I've had a few in the past but I'm over them.
I dunno. Because I set too many expectations for them? Tired of the name? The web design?
It matters not!
To be honest, I just need to clean the slate every so often.
So that is my New Years Resolution.
Blog without expectations!
Write what you know!
Write what you love!
Just WRITE for God's sake, girl.

So here I go.
Once again, this blog is about everything and nothing.
But some of the things I enjoy are:

Crafts! Learning new ones, particularly.
Yarn, chunky knitty, stuffed animuls. (pronounced ani-MULES)
Cooking! Food! Baking, buying veggies from the farmer's market, trying to be vegan again...
Fashion history! I don't know too much, but I love to learn about it. (I'll have to import my old posts about that stuff).
Mmmm.... I enjoy RE-crafting. Taking some 3 dollar thrift shirt and making it flippin awesome.
Uhh.. Ok. Now for an abstract word dump of many more things I like....
Glitter! Dinosaurs! Bikes! Freegans! Tavi the Blogging Wonder! (She is my hero). Talking to plants! Kitchen chemistry experiments! Breaking electronic devices in an attempt to bend them to my will!

Oh dear wandering reader, there is more, much more. But bide your time, innocent one, for the time will come.... *cackle*
And now for a completely unrelated cat picture:
