YAY! I got my first holiday card of the year! Thank you [livejournal.com profile] treacle_tartlet for the fabulous cookie Christmas card! It really brightened my day!

Oh, and btw, if any of you are interested I still have few Christmas cards left and if you want one from me go leave your address here (the comments on that entry are screened).

RL still continues to slightly kick me in the head. I'm still unemployed, though the bright side is that I've actually been to three job interviews in two months! Three! *\o/* Before that the last one was in February. Yeah, the summer was really bad on the job front... Let's hope things'll continue to look a bit brighter.

Because I have lots of time on my hands (or at least most days) I've tried to come up with something to post here. I miss posting stuff and my RL issues are not that interesting that all of you would want to read about them all the time. I found this challenge today while browsing Tumblr and thought it looked pretty interesting.

9 day traveling challenge

  1. Which has been the best trip you had. Explain, post pictures, where you went, with who, etc.
  2. Have you ever traveled aboard? Post a picture of where have you traveled. If not, where would you like to go?
  3. Post a picture of your last trip.
  4. Worst trip you had? Why?
  5. Post a picture of any place you wished you could go, explain why you would like to go.
  6. 10 things you always take with you.
  7. 3 places you have gone to but can’t wait to go again.
  8. 2 places you hope you will never have to return to.
  9. Post a picture of any trip, explain when it was, where, with who.


Day 1 under the cut, image heavy! )

If I was a normal person I'd be all like:

Aww Yiss

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.

[livejournal.com profile] khainir found me this wonderful pattern for these yoga socks that I absolutely love!

Yoga socks

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 [livejournal.com profile] 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, [livejournal.com profile] 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!

China
This one is from China.

Germany 2
This one came from Germany.

Malaysia

Portugal
This was sent to me from Portugal.

USA
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.

Well, as I'm sure you all know I'm currently unemployed. That means I have plenty of time on my hands. Lately I've been using it sewing various things. I love sewing, it's very therapeutic to me (when all goes well that is) so I try to do it whenever I can.

I had this piece of fabric with paper cut-out dolls on it that I was desperate to use somewhere, but until recently I had no idea what to make of it. So bag it became.

I also made this pillowcase for my stepfather who likes Cars very much and has wanted this for some time now.

And last, but not least I have this unfinished project that I will finish tomorrow or day after tomorrow. When finished it will be a full skirt and when I find a proper petticoat it'll look even better.

Okay, sometimes I feel extraordinary slow, because well, it took me this long to figure out why K-9 was named such... You know, the metal dog from Doctor Who.

The reason I was pondering about K-9 was because there was an article in the local paper about something called K-64 (don't ask me what it was, I didn't read the article) and a thought came to me that K-64 must be a new version of K-9. Then I started repeating K-9's name over and over in my head and realised that Kay Nine is almost like canine! Woah! So, yeah. I'm slow occasionally.

I'm visiting my parents this weekend (again, I've been here quite a lot this year) and there's so much more snow outside than where I live. Granted, I live in more south, but there's less than 100 km (about 60 miles) between us geographically. Very interesting.

I have quite infrequently posted this year here and it seems like that's not about to change. RL keeps throwing stuff at me and sometimes it takes time, too much time in fact. I'll try to post a bit more often than I have, but if you don't hear from me for a while don't worry, it's propably nothing serious. And of course, you can find me from twitter (handle same as here) where I post if not daily then at least weekly.
