This past month has been full of surprises and I can’t be more thankful for where I ended up through all of it. I still have several half written blogs I can’t bring myself to find time for. I feel like I’ve been hiding out for a while; no reason really, just had stuff I’ve had to get done.
Let’s see here about a month ago I still was work at the place we shall refer to as TDDN. I was trying to figure out how I was going to live all the way across town with a single speed bike and make it to work. I managed to find a way to work for the time and wasn’t really making any money. About a week and a half later one of my friends/coworkers quits TDDN and I was unaware until the next day. Now, she and another coworker decided to open up their own shop. I was friends with them before that I had thought nothing of it, they wanted to be friendly even with TDDN but no it didn’t matter. So me being a natural at falling into stuff gets called up and fired because of a rumor “lie” whatever you call it, people were talking smack. More importantly my coworkers were talking smack about me for being friends with the girls who opened their own shop. Now this was a pretty big shock but it wasn’t that bad, being set free means run; don’t turn around and try and go back in your cage.
I moved into the perfect spot and while on a walk with my doggies, I stumbled upon a wild black berry patch. It’s not even time for them to even be blooming yet and I have already found so many it’s amazing. I have started the planting of seeds this year but have made only a small dent in the bag of seeds. Spring is the time when I wish I had just enough land I could grow whatever I could think of the most. It’s more than just sunlight and water; I’ve got the special touch. It makes me so happy to be able to experience my little seeds grow into mighty plants.
I was lucky enough to be able to get a tattoo apprenticeship as of recent at this new little shop that’s already a great place to be. I am looking forward to what I can learn to better my abilities not only for tattoos but art in general. I hope to have much to share with y’all soon. I spent yesterday practicing cursive and I can already see a difference in many areas.
This past week I spent covered from head to toe in wood! Yes, I wood burned, dremeled, and sanded as the sun went down and came up. I was diving head first into waters I had yet to test fully. Each piece of wood I worked with worked me back. I learned a lot that week about wood working, proper safety setup, how to keep it from getting all over you (or at least out of your hair). I learned what bags work best when picking black berries, who my true friends are, how to safely collect poison ivy root for wand making,and that job hunting is best done not in the heat of the day.
I have one week before a festival and I still have things to be done, outfits to craft, and I’m still searching for a new job at least temporarily. I’ve got pages and pages of ideas for things to craft and make, but never any time. This past week has been the first week in months that I’ve gotten to start a project and be able to finish it on time and without hassles. With things looking brighter I am glad to still be around. The dust has started to clear in this empty town.
I got a new tattoo almost a week and a half ago and she’s still healing but beautiful. It’s on my elbow, I got a sunflower and yes there’s even a picture if you look to the left hand side. (Instagram)
Well I’ve been up all night again and it seem like I don’t have much time to write. Farewell for now.
