readingredhead: (Fear for Courage)
[personal profile] readingredhead
Maybe it's not the best idea to take up my friend's challenge to create something every day of this month when it's the month during which I have to write a paper, give a lecture, and have family visiting for a week and a half...but I've been frustrated lately that I spend so much time doing things and so little time making things, and I need to set aside time for this, for MY sake. I also need to remember that a lot of what I do really is about making things, and this will actually force me to look at what I do on a daily basis as working towards things I am making in the long-run.

I'm planning to take the "something" in the title rather vaguely -- which means that, for the next 31 days, you'll get updates about everything from school stuff (I have a paper to write and a lecture to give in the next month, not to mention research for another paper to start in on, and a syllabus to plan, and a conference to start thinking about) to kitchen stuff (I've recently become a lot more invested in cooking, so possibly some of my creative things will be recipes or meal plans!) to fandom stuff (I know it's been ages since I have been active in Young Wizards fandom, and that frustrates me and so maybe I will work to change that) to actually Making Things With My Hands (probably via knitting, but who knows?).

I'll use this as a masterpost throughout the month to keep track of the "things" I'm working on, but I'll also be posting what I've accomplished at the end of each day, one post per day, to this journal. My first post will show up later tonight.

Anyone else in this with me?
