SELF PORTRAIT THURSDAY!
I’ve been working a lot lately, so I was really looking forward to yesterday, my first day with the apartment all to myself. I was going to be super productive. I was going to clean up the apartment, download and put new music on my iPod, and I was planning on starting a new knitting project—something to work on when I get home from work or if I’m just watching TV.
But I found myself pacing yesterday, not really sure what to do with myself. I pulled out tons of yarn, but I wasn’t feeling any of it. I wanted to work with cotton, but I don’t have enough of it to really make anything. (Plus I can’t really justify going out and buying a lot of new yarn when I have a ton of unused yarn just sitting here.)
I think I wasted a lot of time. (I mean, I did vacuum the entire apartment, but that’s only slightly satisfying.) It’s frustrating when you sit down to work on a project and you’re not excited about it. Or nothing comes to mind.
I think that’s been my problem lately. I think my mind has been so busy trying to figure out other things (life stuff, etc.) that when I finally sit down with things that make me happy (like knitting), I go blank.
It’s a phase, I know.
But I always hate waiting to get my groove back.
Don’t you know that most of my self portraits require a shower and a shave first?
