Hobbies


I’m still kinda wondering about this whole hobby thing…  I should point out, I lose interest in things pretty fast – especially if I master it or suck at it.  I’m also a bit color deficient.  I don’t see shades or hues of colors.  Two blues next to each other are going to look the exact same color.  As a result, I have a tendency to hate paintings done in pastels.

This tends to rule out coloring, painting, and things like that.  I can crochet, but it bothers my hands so I don’t find it relaxing anymore.

I can make beaded jewelry, but I can’t wear metal, so I have to either sell it or give it away to people.  Everyone that knows me fairly well has a substantial amount of jewelry I’ve beaded over the years.  I enjoy it, but I think if I continue to hand it out as gifts, my friends and family may cut my hands off.

I’m a fairly voracious reader, but I read really fast and now that I write all the time, I find it less enjoyable.  I keep finding plot holes (Spoiler alert for Fate of the Furious:  No way Hobbs worked with Alana that closely for years didn’t know or notice!) and things like that.

They say if you love your job, you’ll never work a day in your life.  It’s a beautiful saying, but it doesn’t hold water in the real world.  Sometimes, it is a lot of work.  My mood impacts it, this move is impacting it significantly, I just feel paralyzed sometimes when I open the computer.  It isn’t writer’s block, I have tons of notes and ideas written down, it’s more like word block.  I know what I want to do, but finding the words for it has been a struggle.

I am learning about a new phenomenon which is sort of interesting, I do like to learn.  It’s called the Mandela Effect.  And I must admit that I seem to suffer some of the mass delusions as others.  I remember being quite shocked to learn that Nelson Mandela was being released from prison, because I distinctly remember him being murdered in prison in the 1980s.  I also remember Billy Graham’s televised funeral, which is weird, since he is still very much alive.

Ah well, off to work…
