As some of you may know, I have been feeling quite anxious as of late, which leads to me procrastinating. The bad thing is, I'm procrastinating from doing a research job, the only job I have that pays me, so I haven't had a paycheque in a month. But part of my procrastinating involves making/thinking of crafty things, mostly having to do with jewelry making. so now I have a wish list.

  • a loom, so that I can incorporate woven bits and cords into my designs (plus weaving sounds super fun)
  • kumihimo supplies, so that I can make nice cords for some of my vintage Ethiopian pendants
  • flexshaft, so that I can properly finish my metal jewelry components

Sigh. Why do I prevent myself from doing the things that I enjoy? I think I need to write a more comprehensive and better-written post about anxiety, procrastination, denial.
