Ideas Churning about

So today I had two things to blog about... One was angsty, the other wasn't, therefore in the attempt to not be so dark and twisty anymore I opted to share about something non angsty.

I'm really into Etsy, and if you're a female with any sort of affinity for awesome homemade or vintage items you should be too. For some time now I've been thinking about all the different little things I make and how usually people like them and suddenly I thought, why not try selling my things on Etsy?

It looks fun, sounds easy, and best of all----- MONEY. Ok, so money isn't really the heart of the matter, however I have had my eye on a few things on the site and if I had a little cash in my pocket I don't see what's really stopping me from compulsively buying whatever I wanted.

Also, I've been meaning to post all of my summer book reviews, but I've been lazy. So far I have three, and hopefully by the end of the summer I'll have eight. I've been debating with myself on whether or not I should post all of them at once, or just space them out.... but I'll get around to it later :)

Since I volunteer at my local public library it's mandatory for me to do the summer reading club, and for each book we read we have to write a book review and submit it. In order to participate in all the activities and prize opportunities we have to read a total of eight books. I figured since I was outputting the effort to write the reviews, why not share them with you guys?

Hopefully I picked some books that you haven't read!

Also, project Karma Cards is going great! My friend Bekka and I have already begun our mission of putting them in random places, hoping to cheer someone up. I feel like even though I don't get to see the product of my actions, it's still probably doing some good somewhere.

Oh yeah, I just remembered that I've only done 2 out of the 6 summer AP art assignments I'm supposed to do, and I made a personal goal to make at least 3 of them large-scale or 3d... I should probably get working on it.

Anyways, that's some of the non-angsty stuff that's been churning around in my head for the past few days. What have you guys been thinking about?


  1. wow, lol, you sound incredibly busy and for that I am jealous. Me personally, I am not doing much this summer besides working, (hopefully I start soon!) and going away for the week, I will be doing absolutely nothing. I hate doing nothing. Maybe I will starts a summer reading list? I don't know, but your summer, sounds amazing!

  2. Oooh I love browsing Etsy. There's always so much neat stuff on there, I could be occupied for hours on end :D And yay for book reviews! Those are always good, haha! But that's wonderful about your karma cards, too (:

    And oh crap, that just reminded me that I have AP US History assignments I'm supposed to be doing... Ergh :P
