Thoughts for the week #2

  • Elder Scrolls VI in 2019?!?! That's far too long from now. If they take what people loved from Skyrim, add things from popular mods, and learn from their mistakes with Fallout 4 (okay this has been a problem with Skyrim too, FO4 was arguably a bit better with this).. It could be amazing. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the heck out of modding Skyrim and may make a post about that. I may even try my hand at making mods! After I fix my broken game...which I broke from installing mods. Eh, maybe I'll just make a new character.
  • An Open Letter From Someone ‘Beyond Help’ - Trigger Warning: depression, suicide. "You don’t get to decide ... which of us are “beyond help.” You also don’t get to decide which of us deserve to live. You don’t get to decide who has a chance and who doesn’t.
  • OffbeatHome - Getting Older -  I'm kind of bummed that I'm even struggling with this concept. I'll be 28 next month, still quite young! Yet here I am with forehead wrinkles. I can see them watch over the course of photos from the last few years. I am sure the wrinkles are super normal for someone my age, but when you're surrounded by a society that against signs of aging, it can be discomforting. Since I've never been one for much make-up, I'm trying to learn to shrug it off. It's just my forehead.
  • Lookit the pretty fabric I bought! I started sewing again this week and already made a bra :D. This weekend's project will be underwear! I hope I don't run out of this too soon, patterned fabric (cotton/lycra blend) is not cheap.

Thoughts for the week #1

Instead of spamming Facebook with lots of posts, I guess I'll compile things here and see how that works out. This may be a regular Friday post.
  • I'm unstoppable/ I'm a Porsche with no brakes/ I'm invincible/ Yeah, I win every single game/ I'm so powerful/ I don't need batteries to play/ I'm so confident, yeah, I'm unstoppable today/ Unstoppable today, unstoppable today/ Unstoppable today, I'm unstoppable today/ Unstoppable today, unstoppable today/ Unstoppable today, I'm unstoppable today - from Sia's Unstoppable
  • Gaming travel rewards is a tempting process, but I don't think I have the dedication to make sure it doesn't destroy my credit. I do want to buy a house someday, after all.
  • I'm getting back into sewing and found Craftsy! It has online tutorials, with hours of instruction, for all kinds of projects. I'm going to check out this one for beginners. I've never had any formal instruction and most of my projects were refitting t-shirts, so I think this will be very helpful.

My newly organized sewing station. The fabric is my mom's scarf that I have needed to return for almost a year. The jewelry box holds some needles & current cross stitch projects/thread.
