My Monopolized Time

Right in time for the holiday, I am sick. So, I am at home recuperating and trying desperately not to throw up.

 

When I’m not doing the above, I’ve been taking an inventory of what I’ve gotten accomplished thus far regarding my project list.

 

  • João’s Hello Kitty Hat (Completed)
  • Blodeuwedd The Hat for me
  • Little Boy Blue Blanket (Loading…)
  • Shimmer Stole (Deleted)
  • Sidewalk Shawl (Completed)
  • Handschuhe Times Two: Bruce’s Gloves (Completed)
  • Cosmos Doily Madness: Doily Three (Loading…95%)
  • Rainstorm II Socks (Completed)
  • Child-bearer’s Cardigan (Loading…messed up but still loading at 90%)
  • Boba Fett Amigurumi Doll
  • Baby Groot (Completed)
  • Rose Doily #804
  • Be a Friend/Have a Heart Shawl(Completed)
  • In Love With Color Throw
  • Bigger on the Inside Shawl
  • Gloves for myself
  • A scarf for myself
  • Villimarjatar Shawl (Loading…)
  • Large Pineapple Doily
  • Monster Slippers for Valerie

 

I am also on a few sites that claim to teach how to code…learning how to code. Right now, it has me going through the basics of HTML and CSS, which I already know, but I am determined to get into Programming languages soon. I’m determined to make this a side career for myself or even a main career. I just need to focus on my goals and not veer off-course.

 

No doubt this all seems very stressful. I’m having fun doing it but it is rather a lot to take on. As if this weren’t enough, I’m also taking up Korean, because I’ve wanted to for a very long time. I’m memorizing things semi-well even if I don’t spell the words as well as I should in review. I’ll get there though. Basically, my non-studying time is filled with a lot of studying. I’ll need to find another source for the language tutoring, as the one I’m using is holding back on the hard words. I’ll have to see if the Library has a language CD or something. I can also go to the local grocery store and pick up a newspaper for writing practice.

 

So, lots to do and only twenty-four hours in the day to do it all. Add onto this, the pattern writing/knitting design learning, plant management, taking care of the Maternal Parental, and taking care of myself as well as the household, and I have very little time left in the day. This has put a real dent in my social networking. I will try to log in once a week and, as always I will be available via messenger service.

 

Take care. Later.

  1. An interesting side effect of over scheduling is that you find out what is most important to you. And how much you ignore your own wants and needs for others.

    I’m curious. Does Korean use the same alphabet as English? My sister, Margaret has a facility for languages, and seems to prefer those with a different alphabet. So far, she’s learned Russian, Greek (she was married to a Greek man, lived there for a number of years, and even taught there for a while), and Japanese.

    Hope you feel better soon. ❤

    • This is so true. The more I schedule stuff for myself, the more I’m finding that I actually put myself first and I feel better about putting myself first. I was putting others first A LOT prior to a few months ago.

      Korean has Hangul, which is the written characters and a Romanized script which is written using a Latin alphabet like English. I’m nowhere near an expert though, so don’t quote me on that.

      Wow, that sounds awesome. I’ve been told that I have a facility for languages and that I shouldn’t waste the ability. I don’t plan on wasting it but I’m going to learn what I want to learn rather than what’s thrown my way, unless the dire need arises to learn something specific. To that end, I’ve quit my other language courses on Memrise and am focusing solely on Korean.

      Thank you for the well wishings. 🙂
