Two paragraphs later: ”I learned after it that I had really better only do things because I like them, and not because it sounds like a good idea because I’ll get a career from it.”
You might want to read the whole she-bang here. Have a great Little Friday Eve!
“[T]rust your instincts if you get excited about something. It might not be good, but at least you’ll be passionate about it.”
Today is a day for shooting pictures … of stuff I’m excited about … and it IS good … and I AM passionate about it. So, there.
Seems like it might be time for a reminder. For me, at least.
I was saving this for a Happy Saturday post to accompany photos (finally got my camera back from Chicago!) of finished and in-box knits. But, you know what? Can’t wait. This is my third listen today and it’s put a smile on my face every time. Oh, Wycliffe.
I had a big mug of detox tea (which tastes just as bad as one would expect a proprietary blend of chicory, roasted dandelion and sticks — seriously, there’s something called kukicha twig in this stuff–would), I got my Noosa on, and am crossing stuff off my list so I work on my own stuff instead of work stuff this weekend. I don’t want to jinx it, but things may be looking up …
Here’s just some stuff that’s been floating around my “save this to read later” tumblr. Since it’s Little Friday Eve, I thought I’d share:
3) I didn’t go to an HBCU, and sometimes wonder if I should have. Here’s an interesting article about the struggles facing one of the best.
4) This commercial. For scotch. Seriously.
5) This pattern, which is happening as soon as I finish those mittens.
But, when has that stopped me? Just finished marathon baby sweater finishing this weekend, so I need a little salt to get me back on track. These:
As SOON as I get home, these go on the needles. Given that winter isn’t giving up on Chicago and the Northeast any time soon, a couple of you friends may get some conversation starter mittens in the next little while. Happy Monday!
This week was a blur. So happy the fog lifted in time to get in this wonderful Valentine’s Day gift. Happy Valenfriday!
