As I mentioned in the first part, I am a bit of a world politics (and history) nerd now and that shit gets scary sometimes.
To cope with my anxiety and to manage my Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, I take drugs (#noshame) and I make things. Last summer, while recovering from a frying pan-related back injury, I taught myself crochet. When I am able to sit (which is much more often now), I love to sew. My favourite things to make are small quilts that make for super cute scarves (Etsy) and I use my skills around the home LIBERALLY. I prefer upcycling things because it makes me feel warm and fuzzy to keep things out of the landfills.
And with the state of the world… I will take whatever warm fuzzies I can get! It’s a big part of what this blog is all about – surviving and (hopefully) thriving in an increasingly uncertain world.
So what will this blog be about? Excellent question!!
I don’t know. BUT. It will have stories about my journey through 2019 – a year where we might leave the EU and the world might go to war, and white nationalists might take over (they won’t… right?). It will also be about things like
- getting fit as a fat woman without dieting
- gardening for food as a terrible gardener
- saving money without compromising ethics
- pictures of us for my mother to show to my 95 year old Oma
- nerdy shit like book reviews
- my thoughts about things
- unschooling teens
- LGBTQ+ stuff
- AND CAT MEMES!
