...and now I'm going to tell you about it.
I've had a rough couple of months.
A rough, oh, six months, let's say.
And I really don't want to talk about it. Or think about it. Or anything.
Because the more I talk, or think, the worse things seem to get.
Thus, my strategy:
I would, in fact, very much like to just turn off my brain. The best way I can think to do that is to do some stuff. And then I'd like to tell people about that stuff. 'Cause really, one of the best parts of doing stuff is telling people about it later.
Clearly, I'm not going to be doing anything particularly grandiose. And I'm definitely not saying this is recommended reading. Put simply; I am going to do some stuff, take some pictures, and write it down. Do with it what you will.
A few stipulations as to this stuff I am planning to do:
1. Anything posted must be a finished thing; something that I have already done, unless it is a particularly elaborate project which must be done in multiple parts.
2. Everything posted must be evidenced graphically in some way. 'Cause I like pictures, and you should, too.
3. I will make an effort to do odd or interesting things whenever possible. It's just better that way. Plus I'm totally awkward, so putting myself in additionally awkward situations will be that much more entertaining.
With the third rule in mind, I have to admit that I will be doing a lot of cooking and knitting. Not fascinating, no, but I am a pretty terrible cook and I just started knitting, so that should make for a lot of pictures of burnt things and holey scarves. If nothing else, it will be very schadenfreude.
