I’m finally on vacation, and will be until August, so I suddenly have a lot of time on my hands. I’ve been sewing a lot, for one. I made a cat plushie, altered several dresses, and have been diligently working on a fairy doll*. I’ve been working on another pair of socks here and there. I’ve also been attempting to tidy my apartment and maintain my garden.
ADF-wise, I’m nearly done reviewing my first DP and have been reading, reading, reading for my own study programs. I also started a Google group for the vegetarians and vegans in ADF called ADF Veggies**.
I have been very productive!
Today, however, I feel lazy. I worked a little on my doll (sketched an outfit concept, painted some beads…), but otherwise? Maybe I feel a little lost without my job this month. I do everything I normally pack into the evening in the morning now and am left… with a lot of time!
I started to watch “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” A few episodes aside, I’ve never really seen much! A friend once tried to get me into it. She showed me a few episodes but never from the beginning. It always seemed really hokey to me. Indeed, it is, but by starting from the beginning the corniness has grown on me. I find the characters amusingly delightful. The occult references are often hilarious, but for every Hollywood cliche or seemingly offensive cultural appropriation, there’s always a surprising “Wow, they actually know that!” moment. I’ve been urged by several friends to keep going as it “only gets better.”
