MORE about me ;)

So, I have considered many times closing down this here blog.  For one thing, the name: sensitivesnapdragon?  I hate it.  I picked it back in 2005 when I was still in college.  It was supposed to represent the fact that I am sensitive, snappy, and my name means beautiful flower...  Now, though, it just sounds stupid... and long.

Besides my taste in names, I have changed SO much since the start of this blog - and consequently, so has this blog.

Here is a little history of this here blog (and my life):

I started this blog in 2005 when I was in college, majoring in Electrical Engineering (I loved it in school).   I wrote about being single and the random guys I would date and religion.  (BTW, I couldn't be farther away from those religious beliefs, now. I can't even step inside of a church without having an anxiety attack!)

I honestly never thought I would get married.  Then I did get married and got a job.  I wrote mostly about my job and getting a masters - which I never actually completed.  Turns out, I didn't like engineering.  So, getting a master's in it was not such a good idea.

I decided to teach high school, which I also didn't like.  Partly because my principal was an idiot.  So, I quit.

Then I had Zekey and stayed home full time.  I did some video tutorials, like the Watermelon Earrings.   (If you watched that video and you were wondering - like some other people:  "Why do she gotta have her boobs all out like that?" - just know that I have always been a member of the IBTC and I was pretty excited about my nursing boobs. ;). )

But then, I started feeling kinda useless at home and we definitely could use the money.  So, I started teaching at a *commercial school*.     I actually liked this job - well mostly.  But then I got fired on my last day before I was to stop to have Anaya.  I was pretty bummed because I wanted to go back (part time) after she was old enough.

Then I was offered the same position at another location.  But I am still debating...

THEN I got pretty obsessed with video blogging - and did it for an entire year.  Literally.  365 of making videos every.single.day.  I still make videos - just not nearly as often.  When I was obsessedI joined a network - and signed a contract saying that I will make videos at least twice a month for 2 years - so I still make them.

Now my life is mostly about becoming an artist.  I am trying diligently to create from my heart.  It is the hardest thing I have ever done.

 I will have also written about my kids and if I am in a bad mood, you might find a list of my top annoyances. But, if you are looking for more craft ideas and and you run across a post on Crossing the Street SafelyNose Picking, Bible-Thumping, or Crackheads you will know why. ;)
