If I was a normal person I'd be all like:
because it's my birthday today, but I'm not (a normal person that is).
Still, happy birthday to me! I'm one step closer to 30 and I don't like that fact at all. Not one drop.
Anyway, I've been meaning to post for a while now. It's been ages since I've last posted. I'm still unemployed (boo!) with no end in sight. It's really difficult to get a job right now as I'm sure you all know. I've had nothing but time on my hands and I've spent it knitting.khainir
found me this wonderful pattern for these yoga socks that I absolutely love!
That pic is from a magazine, but the end result is actually quite close. Please don't ask me for that pattern, because it's in Finnish and it's just too much work to try and translate it to English. Unless, of course you can read Finnish... ;)
I've started my X-mas gifts already and would love to post a picture of one of them, but I don't want khainir
to find out what it is. Muahahahaaa! So, you all just have to wait after Christmas. I'm quite proud of my idea actually and would very much like to just post the picture and blurt out to her what she's gonna get as a present this year.
I've also started writing fanfic. I've written something every now and then for as long as I can remember, but before this year I've never actually posted them anywhere. So, I've got a separate LJ for my writing stuff, mywritingcabin
. My master list consist at the moment of three drabbles (Glee) plus one almost finished Glee Kink Meme fill, that I'll post there once I've actually finished it. I've also got one unfinished Torchwood/The Avengers crossover fic that I intend to finish at some point. And hey, I got an invite to AO3
today; clearly they waited all this time just to give me one on my birthday! :D
Last, but definitely not the least, I've started Postcrossing
. What is Postcrossing you ask? Well, according to their website:"The goal of this project is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, almost free! The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive at least one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world."
So, to put it bluntly, I send a postcard somewhere in the world and after that's been received I get one in return, though not from the same person. I've been a member over six months now and received such beautiful postcards you'd never believe! (As of today, I've received 80 postcards all over the world.) I've always loved to receive postcards from friends when they're traveling and now I can get them from places I've never even dreamed of getting one before!
This one is from China.
This one came from Germany.
This one from Malaysia.
This was sent to me from Portugal.
And this one is from U.S.A.
Well, I think that's it for a while. I'll post more if I feel like I missed something important, but don't hold your breath. My updates are very irregular as I'm sure you all know.
