I like to create. I like to procrastinate. I like to fiddle with finicky projects. I like to capture stories because I see a story in everything.
My favourite past time is merging all of those things and that's pretty much what my gallery is. A mismatch of story, finicky projects, procrastination, and a bit of my constantly creating brain.

Every time someone (or something) asks me to tell them about myself I sit there staring at them. I draw a blank.

Out of everything to tell about yourself, how can you choose one thing? How does "Tell me about yourself" help you narrow it down at all? There's so much information that can be gained from one individual and there's so many different aspects and factors that culminate to create a person that surely someone can't sum it up in a few sentences?

Isn't it better to be asked specifically rather then to try and define someone from so broad a question?

I'm going to let everyone in on a secret.

I'm really shite at being active :nod: It's true, I'm really bad at being active.

It's amazing how much it's not obvious isn't it? ;)

I started coming on here and setting out to do things with positive intentions, like most of the things I set out to do in life, and unfortunately I've had to have a period of forced hibernation which is ongoing.

At the moment I'm pretty bored and feel some inspiration so I'm making the most of it and telling my body it can get stuffed for the day because I'm entertaining myself.

I wanted to update my journal to let everyone know, if you want to know, that I'm fine. I just can't participate online or really with outside life at the moment (outside of my own narrowed view of the world at this time) and that I'll probably be around at some point again.

Thanks to everyone who continues to watch me. I really, really appreciate it. And I also thank everyone who has :+fav:'ed, commented on my submissions, or commented on my profile (and anyone who will do so in future). I will try to get to you all to thank you individually or to carry on that conversation with you, but it might either take some time or unfortunately not happen so please keep in mind that I do appreciate you spending your energy or time on me in any way you do even if I don't ever answer you.

I hope everyone is having a great start to the new years and a safe and happy holiday season :glomp:

I just stopped by to say I agree with the tell me about yourself thing. I tend to see a lot of undefined things in what would seem to others simple questions. These often get me stuck xDDD People need to be very specific.
For example, what is your name? now are you asking me for my first name, last name, first and last, first last and first middle, all names... If written, is this in block capitals or normal? Gets a bit confusing ^^;
Anyways hello :aww:
