My Hands Hurt

I have been enjoying this "stay at home! save your money! read a book! create something!" phase. I started this year off completely stress & anxiety free. I definitely don't miss rude people, overpriced items, or senseless stress. Why should i let a low paying, never getting the attention I deserved job overpower my life and happiness? I shouldn't. That's why it's not. 1 point for me, 0 for the man. Anyway. My boyfriend has been making these amazing vegan dinners almost every night. I am so lucky. He never cooked for himself or anyone else and now we eat this deliciousness a few times a week!

I successfully made a cute collar that i am really excited about! (I'm finding a reason to wear it with everything) I tweaked it to make it my own, and it came out way better than i thought.


I started this month off reading Paint it Black by Janet Fitch and for the first few chapters i was practically forcing myself to read to the next chapter. The main character is a hard one to like, her thoughts followed by her actions, kinda disturbed me. I didn't like her nature to self medicate. But at the same time, i felt for her, she was an outcast who had a broken past. Dealing with her now, broken present and unknowing her future, which might be just as bad. I'm taking a break from reading it now. I'm almost finished with it, but it's yet to come to any conclusion, plus it was depressing the crap outta me.

I started reading The Fault in Our Stars and i read more then half of the book last night. It's a sweet book, I can see the ending of this book will be a sad one, I can't wait to finish it.

Also, i taught myself how to knit. With light saber chopsticks. I ended up buying real needles yesterday. Knitting is fun, but i'm bias.

what i've been up to:

As of lately, I've had a ton of free time on my hands and I've been taking advantage of it and i am loving every second of it!! Plus, i treated myself to a few things. =)


Photojojo!: A digital holga lens for my canon 350D and although i am still getting used to it, I am loving how some of my pictures are coming out! This is my second purchase from this website and I definitely recommend it and will continue to shop there. WAY reasonable shipping prices and options as well as just being a really fun site to just browse for hours on end!





*no editing besides rounding the corners!

Unique Photo: Film for my instax 50s mini and 320 land camera! I only buy my film using this site, it's the cheapest i can find each types of film, the only downside is the shipping prices. Usually more than the film it self =(




Thriftbooks: I have a hard time passing up a good deal (especially on books!) When my mom told me to check out a cool site for used books, I was pleasantly surprised! Most books start at $3.97 and there is free shipping on all orders! Almost all the books I've ordered are "Like New" and they arrive looking brand new! I gave myself a personal goal of reading 24 books this year, so I created a Goodreads account to keep it fun! And thriftbooks.com helps me save $$!



I ♥ my lil' creature collection!
you can peek at my "to read" list on my Goodreads profile!


Crochet: After searching all over the internet I found an easy pattern that I loved! After a bit of tweaking of the original pattern, I made this cutie..
