Regarding life: ARGGGGGGGGHH. That’s all, really. My brother’s a dumbass, his “girlfriend” deserves a punch in the nose, my neighbours can’t be evicted because…their agents are…afraid they’ll set the unit on fire…? (I shat you nit. That’s what we were told.), I have a migraine (wow surprise) and a sinus infection (what a shock), and MERCURY RETROGRADE.
(Writing this blog is a big eff you to said retrograde. Everything in me wants to curl up in a little ball and isolate grumpily, but hell no, we are talking whether we like it or not. So effing there!)
Regarding writing: self, do not stifle yourself. If you have an idea you want to flow with, then flow with it, don’t stop yourself from doing it — that way leads to madness. Or, well, it leads to writer’s block and pathological boredom. If you want to write about the daughter of certain soulmates, just do it. Restricting yourself and not allowing yourself to write things you’re enthusiastic about is a big no. Especially if you can’t think of a remotely decent reason for doing so! Smarten up your act, dumbass.
(Positive self-talk. *snort*)
Regarding hobbies (oh my goodness I literally typo’d that as “regarding hobbits” at first, ahaha): I’m learning sashiko embroidery~ My first real sashiko needles should be coming in the post pretty soon, aaaand Lincraft is having a 40% sale, sooo…:D Also, I have purple hexies out the wazoo and this makes me a very happy Yunmeng Jiang sect member. I might buy one more “cake” of purple yarn, just to make the blanket a fair size…
Regarding spirituality: I’m going to try and meditate every day for 20 minutes or so from now on. Daoism is…it’s become so important to me, so steadying, so I would be an absolute fool not to embrace it as wholly as I can in as many aspects of my life as I can. I don’t know if I’ll ever venture into religious Daoism, or just remain on the more eso/exoteric side of things, but…what happens will happen. No more fighting, just flowing. And yes, I do believe in qi…
Also, Mum made me a new altar cloth and sitting pillow! Both with turtles on! 😀 I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that (sea) witch. ;P
Random fact for you to consider: aloe vera incense produces the cleanest scent, I swear. My house smells wonderful right now.
