I pretty much started off the week in the weirdest mood. I basically wanted to defer from uni or move into part time which I guess when I think about it is fully crazy. As I only have one semester left. It really got me thinking. I was really confused and frazzled and it made it hard to make a decision, the right one. I felt like I was doing uni for the sake of doing uni not because I wanted to. My work load was huge too which made it even more difficult. There are other areas and things I wanted to do and I was sick of doing something I didn't really want to do. I felt...stuck.
After much crying, talking, thinking and praying I finally decided to finish off my degree at least to justify all the hard work I have put in. And next year I will be able to move on to better things and do all that I want to do. And to help with the work load I changed a subject. And not having a job was another area that I was struggling in but it seems to be working out (in other ways). I feel like I have grown so much in just a few days and now I feel so much better. I have some fantastic friends, family and my Jason. I feel so truly blessed!
Anyway, sorry for going on about that. I've been in deep thinking lately and going through different aspects of my life. So here's a photo of Jason.
This was taken last night just before his grand final match for indoor soccer (Futsal). Unfortunately his team lost. Although they finished first in the season, the team they played last night were very aggressive and played dirty. I think there were a lot of unfair calls, but then what can you do but except the loss with good sportsmanship.
Today I decided to make a journal. I've done my own bookbinding a few times but it hasn't been all that neat. Anyway, I had sewn the pages (signatures) together and realised with the thick watercolour paper I used it was too fat for the size I was making it. In the end I decided to make two journals instead.
This is the first one. It's not very neat but it still does the job I think =)
A close up. The little butterfly is supposed to be a light pink. It looks funny here.
I was so proud of how neat I got this, I had to take a photo. It's probably not that exciting to everyone else though =p
My second journal which is soo much neater. I really like this one best.
It's a bit of a close up. To show the little cameo. They were two separate pieces the cameo and the setting. I pretty much just glued the cameo on.
A photo to compare the two. I definitely like my second one better. The cover is so much smoother and neater.
And another close up. You can kind of see the little added embellishments better here.
Oh and can I just say that I love penpals!! Who doesn't love to receive nice mail? Especially on pretty paper and little bits added. Thats the kind of letter I like to write. Nice paper with stickers and a little something. In pretty much all my letters I do that. If anyone wants a penpal just email me lol =0)
