Next week is the last week of teaching and I really need to get myself going on finishing this stupid proposal so I can just get on with my life. Now I just need to stop getting stressed and upset when I think about opening the document. Argh. My project is going fine. It will be okay. And yet, whenever I try to write about it... I just shut down. Am I allowed to cite residual trauma from my last lab still...?
In more happy things, I managed to do some fun me-things this week. I added words to a google-doc that has been sitting untouched for months. Tonight I finally pulled all the crafting things out and made myself a nice tote bag. It was meant to be a prototype before I use my awesome fabric, but I have ended up really liking it. Next week I want to make a matching zippered pouch to keep inside the tote since there are no pockets. (I actually know how I would add pockets for next time, but I didn't bother for this). I also got something in the mail that I needed for my planned costume sewing, so I can work on that next week too.
I also bought myself a hula hoop tonight. I know a few people who like hooping and it's like fun exercise, so how could I lose? Plus, it is shiny. I am actually eyeing the mini-hoops now because it's kinda like poi.
Also, I am currently obsessed with Ed Sheeran's album. It's called + and has been out in the UK for a bit, but it came out this week. I bought it on a bit of a whim and have been listening non-stop. It's like.. folky singer-songwriter with some hip-hop and it works.
So yes, now I am off to watch Suits and.... then bed. Yes.
