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. ;). )
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 Safely, Nose Picking, Bible-Thumping, or Crackheads you will know why. ;)
