Day 1, 4-MAY-16: hopes, dreams, and plans for the next 365 days with a picture of yourself.

  • hopes:
    • I'm hoping to design some craft patterns and make some plush toys, etc. If B's plan of opening a craft shop in the next few years works out, then I want to have something to bring to it. If she still wants me to be involved, that is!
    • I'm also hoping to start sewing clothes for myself again.
    • I'd like to finish several more of the goals on my 101 Things in 1,001 Days list.
    • I hope I'll have the time and inclination to become proficient in writing texts in Haisyll (my conscript).
  • dreams:
    • It seems that my hopes and dreams are the same, really. I'll always be a dreamer and I imagine I'll be dreaming about much the same things this time next year.
  • plans:
    • In a few weeks' time, I'm going to sign on with an agency and work as a temp for the foreseeable future.
    • I plan to finish unpacking and setting up my house, as well as getting the garden in order.
    • I want to study more and continue on my spiritual path in various ways as they come to me.
      • I don't tend to make a lot of plans!
  • A pic from my Instagram from last weekend

Day 2, 5-MAY-16: something that’s illegal but you think it should be legal.

  • Marijuana. In Australia, the laws are ridiculously strict. This herb has been demonised to the point where even its extremely-useful cousin hemp is banned. The Government spends millions of dollars each year in trying to enforce the law, when if they only just legalised it, they could make money instead! (From taxing it.) I don't see marijuana as any more harmful as alcohol. Sure, there are always some who will abuse it, and some that it will make sick, but it's the same with alcohol. I think that if similar laws and restrictions were enacted, it would work well. Then people (adults) could decide for themselves if they wanted to use it instead of being treated like children by the government. IMHO

Day 3, 7-MAY-16: what you think your reason for being here is.

  • I don't think there is a reason or purpose outside of ourselves for being here. We create our own reason for being in this universe and in this particular life. My purpose, I think, is to learn all that I can. Why, I'm not really sure. It's just a feeling that I have.

Day 4, 10-MAY-16: how you think your life would change if you achieved your dream.

  • The answer would depend on which dream!
  • The one that comes to mind first though, is my dream of starting a craft shop/business with B. She only mentioned it to me about a month ago, so it's a very new thing, and I don't know much about her plans for it. It's not even a thing yet, only a twinkle in someone's eye, so I don't want to pin all my hopes on it. But yet, I can't help dreaming...
  • In a nutshell, I think I will (to some extent) be able to escape the 'The Game is Rigged' situation that I find myself in. I'll be able to have more say over how many hours I work and when. I'll also be doing something I enjoy more and working with a friend. Even if that doesn't eventuate, I'd like to be able to work part-time. Then I could pursue my arts and crafts, perhaps even sell some of my art, if that isn't too crazy a dream???

Day 5, 14-MAY-16: something you would change about the world.

  • Of course, I would like to end war and have everyone be nice to each other and all that sort of thing. I'd like everyone to feel good about themselves so they don't feel the need to troll other people and bring them down.
  • That there is less greed so people can see why universal healthcare and helping people will actually benefit everyone including themselves.
  • That there is more compassion so people will understand each other better. Hopefully this will mean they won't hurt each other or try to manipulate each other or interfere in other people's business.

Day 6, 15-MAY-16: something you would like to change about yourself.

  • I wish I could free myself from anxiety and self-doubt. I know I could achieve so much, meet people and have amazing experiences if it weren't for this. This is why I stay in my house all day and don't go for walks. This is why I bomb out in job interviews and can't get a better job. This is why I avoid meeting people and learning what I could from/about them.
  • Egh, if I keep going on like this, I'll start telling myself how much of a fucking failure I am and I'll need to spend the rest of the afternoon in bed staring at the ceiling.

Day 7, 18-MAY-16: a show or a movie that has changed you, and how.

  • There are several, but the one I choose is The Breakfast Club. I first saw it when I was about 25, but I really wish I had seen it earlier, when I was a teenager. It made me realise that everyone has insecurities and no-one's life is perfect. People often act the way they way they do towards others not because of anything to do with the other, but because of something inside themselves.

Day 8, 22-MAY-16: things that make you sad.

  • when people are cruel to each other.
  • when people are cruel to animals.
  • when people think it's OK to just keep killing the environment like it doesn't matter.
  • the news.
  • thinking about all the friends I've lost throughout the years because of my anxiety.
  • worrying about things that might happen to my friends, family and pets.
  • not knowing why I'm here or what I'm meant to do.
  • thinking about how I wasted about 18 years just sitting in my room and being a fuck-up.
  • stuffed toys. idk, sometimes I just get in this mood where looking at/thinking about stuffed toys makes me cry. Perhaps because I wasn't really happy as a child?
  • dusk.

Day 9, 22-MAY-16: things that make you happy.

  • spending quiet time with my husband.
  • the cat
  • nature
  • music
  • art
  • tea
  • hobbies like baking, crocheting, etc
  • taking photos & blogging
  • walking around the city ... Melbourne!!!!!!!
  • getting to celebrate holidays/festivals that have personal meaning to me.
  • all the amazing things in this world that I get to experience, see and hear about.

Day 10, 23-MAY-16: what you think when you hear the words “be yourself”.

  • My first thought is, "impossible!". Everyone is bound by the rules and expectations of the society they live in. Even the most wild and free-seeming people that I read about say they have restrictions on what they can do at times. Whether it's money, work, family, location, physical restrictions, no-one can truly 'be themselves'.

Day 11, 26-MAY-16: the worst advice you’ve ever heard, or ever been given.

  • It wasn't advice exactly, but my Year 8 art teacher gave me an 'E' as my overall grade. (Yes, they had 'E' back then, only one step up from a Fail.) He also criticised me so harshly that I believed I had no creativity in me. I gave up any kind of creative or artistic endeavour and didn't start drawing again for another 10 years. I really regret that wasted time now.

Day 12, 26-MAY-16: the best advice you’ve ever heard, or ever been given.

  • Again, it's not exactly advice from a person, but it's the concept that if a person judges, teases or tries to put another person down, it's only because of something they don't like in themselves. Happy people are self-contained -- they don't feel the need to bring other people down. It's a common thing you see in quotes now, but when I first heard it, it was a radical new concept and it really set off a lightbulb in my head. Now, instead of feeling shitty when other people put me down, I pity them and have compassion for them. It really turned my own self-esteem around to realise that.

Day 13, 29-MAY-16: your favorite quote.

  • I don't really like quotes in general, but here are a couple from my list:
  • Albert Einstein: If you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.
  • Albert Camus: Nobody realises that some people expend tremendous amounts of energy merely to be normal.
  • Bertrand Russell: I would never die for my beliefs because I might be wrong.
  • Hector, The History Boys: The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - that you’d thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you’ve never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it’s as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.

Day 14, 31-MAY-16: write about something you believe in, anything at all.

  • It's interesting that this question came up, because I posted about divination in my blog just the other day.
  • Yes, I believe in divination. I believe in using your intuition to answer questions and decide what to do. I believe that the human mind is so powerful that it can make things happen, or prevent them from happening. Not in a "point your finger and lightning strikes" kind of way, but in a subtle way. People have various different ways to make that happen, but for me, so far I've gotten the best results from working with crystals, essential oils and organic materials such as wood. But in a pinch, anything will do as it's the energy that you're concentrating that's the important part.

Day 15, 1-JUN-16: a song that makes you cry and why.

  • Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush never fails to send me into a blubbering mess of sobbing. It's not so much the song itself, but the whole story (the novel always makes me cry, too). How Catherine gives up her true, wild nature to conform to the expectations of society and how Heathcliff is left to suffer alone, never able to forgive. I also think of Emily Bronte herself, her life and her struggles. She reminds me of myself in so many ways. All of that comes together in one great maelstrom of emotion, and I end up in a gluggy, howling mess.

Day 16, 2-JUN-16: someone you trust.

  • The person I trust most is my husband. I feel like I can tell him just about anything and he won't think I'm wierd. Or at least, he'll think I'm wierd in a good way!

Day 17, 6-JUN-16: your idol and why you look up to them.

  • I don't have an idol at all; I can't think of anyone in particular that I idolise. No-one is perfect, everyone has flaws. I guess the people I admire the most are those that are most kind and understanding when others are not. People that are very generous. People that are not afraid to express themselves no matter what others might think.

Day 18, 7-JUN-16:: why you made your blog, why you still have it.

  • I think this refers to tumblr, but I'm going to talk about my blogspot blog.
  • Also, I already wrote about this for the 10th anniversary of my blog.
  • I first started my blog in 2004. In the beginning, it was targeted towards a small group of other women I worked with, who were all into knitting. Over time, as I lost touch with them and developed different interests, it turned into a general craft blog. Now, 12 years later, it's still about my interests and hobbies, which are quite diverse. I might write about anything from crochet and gardening, to movies and boardgaming.
  • Why I still have it? I just can't stop writing! I enjoy non-fiction writing the most, and it's a satisfying way of expressing myself. It's also a record of things I've done. I don't write my blog for other people, only myself. I get less than 20 views on each post, but I'm not bothered by that. It a lot of people read it, I'd probably feel a lot of pressure and would feel to self-conscious to write in my own voice. So I'm happy for it to stay small and dinky.

Day 19, 8-JUN-16: your thoughts on your family.

  • Well now, that's an interesting one, isn't it?
  • I don't get along with, or have nothing in common with, most of them. The ones I like, I see.

Day 20, 13-JUN-16: what you think makes someone beautiful.

  • The most beautiful people I know are those that are kind and generous and gracious and forgiving.
  • Physical appearance has nothing at all to do with it.

Day 21, 14-JUN-16: what does your favorite t-shirt look like.

  • I'd be hard pressed to choose a favourite t-shirt! I never used to own many, until I realised there were places you could buy them in my size; and the big chain shops started selling cuter clothes.
  • Probably my favourite ones though are the ones that are cute, like the pug in a hat, or that reference nerd culture I like, such as the catbus one.

Day 22, 15-JUN-16: how you judge intelligence.

  • I was discussing this with a friend just the other day. She has a kid in her class who isn't very good at writing or other tasks, and seems to be doing poorly, but she discovered that he's able to explain in great detail how a jet engine works. It was far beyond what the average kid of his age could comprehend. He was the only kid who got top marks for science.
  • Then I spoke about my brother, and how because he didn't go to uni and I did, he always thought of himself as 'the dumb one' and me 'the smart one'. But he can take a whole car apart and tell you what each part does and put it all back together again. I couldn't possibly do that. So in some ways he's much smarter than me.
  • He now has a solid job as a boilermaker, whereas I'm drifting through life, having done a completely useless degree, my only skill being that I know slightly more about the currently-used computer program than some other people.
  • I'm also reminded of a girl I worked with some years ago. She proudly boasted that she had an IQ of 180. She looked down on the work we did and said she was too good to do the filing. I wondered why she was there. Soon we began to notice that she drank from a hidden bottle of vodka and spent the afternoons asleep at her desk. She also often asked to borrow money from us for various reasons that seemed too far-fetched to be true. One day she passed out at her desk and had to be taken home. We never saw her again. About a year later, we saw her name in the obituaries. Sometimes I think of her, and I think that it's one thing to be intelligent, but that doesn't automatically make you smart.
  • I guess what I'm trying to say is -- just because you may have a high IQ, or think you know a lot about something, doesn't make you better than anyone else. I believe that everyone has something they're good at, and are intelligent in some way. It just remains to find out what it is.

Day 23, 16-JUN-16: a month/year of your life when you were happiest and why.

  • Hm, I'm actually finding it quite difficult to think of something.
  • When I think back to my university days and the time spent with my friends and first boyfriend -- that was a good time, but it was always coloured by my anxiety and lack of understanding of other people.
  • When I first met and was dating my (now) husband, that was a great time, but I had a shitty job -- three shitty jobs, actually.
  • It was probably the time when I was working in the Basement, but when we were still living at No. 10. I was happy in my job, and felt secure and comfortable where I lived. And of coure I'd been with Husband for some time at that point, so felt comfortable with him. That was in around 2010 to 2011.

Day 24. 17-JUN-16: your favorite 10 people right now and why.

  • I might be hard-pressed to think of 10, I have to admit. I don't really know many people. But I'll give it a go:
    • My Husband, of course. Heheh
    • My Mum.
    • My brother.
    • My two best friends, S and B.
    • My other friends, E and T.
  • Wow, that's nearly 10 already! I'll think about it some more and finish this list tomorrow. It's too cold to type much right now. xx

Day 25, 19-JUN-16: the last movie you watched.

  • Teehee, the last movie I watched was Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, last night. I'm re-watching the series. I've seen the first four several times, but the latter ones only once each. I think it's the particularly cold winter this year that's made me get back into the Harry Potter world.

Day 26, 23-JUN-16: 5 things you’re looking forward to.

  • I've been a bit depressed the last few days, so this one might be a bit harder than normal to write.
  • 1.
  • 2.
  • 3.
  • 4.
  • 5. When my friend E.R. has a baby. I know IVF isn't guaranteed but I just know it will happen for her and when it does, it will make her so happy.

Day 27, 28-JUN-16: a person you wished lived closer and why.

  • My Mum. In fact, I said this to her just the other day. But then she revived her idea of building a granny flat in my yard and tried to guilt trip me into changing my mind. Even though it's actually literally not possible -- there's not enough space -- not just a case of deciding yes or no.
  • sighs

Day 28, 4-JUL-16: something you makes you really angry.

  • Oops, missed nearly a whole week!
  • I don't get angry very easily, just sad that people mis-understand each other.
  • But I do get angry when people hurt other people or animals. Or they talk about hurting other people as if it's not wrong.

Day 29, 4-JUL-16: a date you’d love for someone to take you on.

  • Presuming this would be my Husband!
  • I'll probably sound incredibly boring, but I'd want us to be alone together, so I'd probably want to stay home. Perhaps a picnic in a beautiful but deserted area, with food we make together. Then to go home and watch a movie we both love with a few drinks. Then go to bed together and have really satisfying ... well, you can guess the rest, I'm sure.

Day 30, 4-JUL-16: 5 favorite girls names, 5 favorite boys names.

  • Ah, well, let me check my names list!
  • Girls:
    • Araminta
    • Bonnie
    • Maisie
    • Tillie
    • Yumi
  • Boys:
    • Angus
    • Brontë
    • Callum
    • Jago
    • Toby

Day 31, 23-OCT-16: a bit about your social life outside of tumblr

  • oops, I got a bit behind!
  • Well firstly, I don't have a social life inside of tumblr!
  • I don't have much of a social life at all. I'm your classic introvert with severe social and generalised anxiety. I don't get out much.
  • I used to meet people online, years ago when the internet was a more innocent place. I've mostly stopped that now.
  • I do have a few friends, but they're so busy with their careers and families that I only see them once a month at best. You get to a point in your life where, if you're working, you see your colleagues a lot more than you see your friends. You think they are your friends, until you leave a workplace and never hear from them again.
  • I often think that having friends is something for other people, not me. I don't get lonely, except when I compare myself to other people.

Day 32, 7-NOV-16: how many pictures do you have in your room?

  • Hmm, none at the moment. But that's only because I haven't put up any of my art yet. Once I've done that, I'd say about 6-8.
    • It would be more, but my bedroom is very small, and I'm paranoid about hanging anything over the bed.
    • If we're talking about the whole house, I have about 20 framed paintings / photos / prints, and perhaps 10 unframed ones that I'm planning on hanging in the hobby room for inspo.

Day 33, 31-JAN-17: someone who really hurt you

  • Again, a really long delay. I guess this question is really hard to answer. The first person that comes to mind is my former boss. For almost a year, I felt bullied, belittled, treated like I was dumb and incompetent. Gaslighted when I tried to say and demonstrate that I worked hard. It took a long time afterwards to realise just what effect it had on me, how my self-esteem plummeted and how much time I needed to recover.
  • Next question!

Day 34, 31-JAN-17: your horoscope for today and whether you think it’s accurate

  • Sun Sign (Aries) -- The company of good friends, perhaps at a group activity or festival of some kind, contributes to a powerful feeling of good health, good fortune, and happiness, Aries. You will probably want to spend a lot of time outdoors today. Sports might appeal to you. There will be a few minor accidents - dropping things, spilling drinks - but in all, this should be a satisfying day.
    • I don't plan on leaving the house today, so it's highly unlikely that I'll be involved in "a group activity or festival of some kind". I do want to spend a lot of time outside though, that's true. Whether I will is another story! Sports never appeals to me. I'm always clumsy, so that last statement will probably be accurate.
  • Moon Sign (Sagittarius) -- Some wonderful new developments could take place in your community, Sagittarius. You might meet some new people who move in nearby. New businesses could also arrive and give a whole new look to the area. You could spend a lot of time visiting others to learn about what's happening. You might also consider fixing up your home, as recent success has made that possible. You will be busy all day.
    • I severely doubt this will happen as I don't plan on leaving the house today. It seems unlikely that "new businesses will arrive" over the course of just one day, either. I haven't had any recent success, so that's not true, though my home does need fixing up! hahah I doubt I'll be busy all day either -- I mean, I'm on here answering random questions; I don't think that counts as "busy"!

Day 35, 31-JAN-17: what is your favorite poptart flavour?

  • I live in Australia, and you have to go to a specialty shop to buy something as exotic as poptarts. I've only had them a few times and I found them too sugary and such a bizarre concept that I couldn't quite deal with it. I don't remember what flavour/s I had. I wouldn't be able to eat them now anyway as I can't eat gluten anymore.

Day 36, 31-JAN-17: what do you think about your friends?

  • *shrugs* They are who they are. I wish I saw them more often, but I understand that they're busy. If I don't see them enough though, I'm the one who's guilty as I very rarely initiate things with them. As much as I love my friends, I just prefer to be alone most of the time.

Day 37, 31-JAN-17: who are you?

  • That's a tough one! There are various answers, depending on who you are and how much I'm willing to divulge to you.

Day 38, 30-OCT-18: thoughts on your generation Hm, well, I'm on the cusp of Gen X and Millennials, with some features of both. I used to think my life was very different from other people my age, but the more people I meet, the more I realise that isn't true. I think my generation could do with more of the optimism of Millennials, and Millennials could do with more of our practicality. Then again, what do I know?
