red (again)

just got back from having my hair done. yay!

-red plastic jewel clip-ons: goodwill, haight street, SF.
-yellow tank: j crew
-red peasant blouse: beacon’s closet, williamsburg, brooklyn (i think? can’t remember.)
–gold belt: thrifted
-denim skirt: mission thrift, SF
-red leggings: AA
-gold lucite ring: pierre bosset, bought in paris when i was visiting there in may
-brown boots: goodwill, e. 23rd street manhattan

sadly those boots are on their last legs. the leather is so brittle and they are splitting every which way. no!! *sniffle*

***

so, i guess i am sort of back from my little break, though i’ll probably take it slow for a bit. thanks for all your kind words and well wishes. i appreciate them greatly.

i do feel somewhat refreshed. it’s been a rough month or so for me mentally for a myriad of personal reasons, which i won’t really go into. so, this past week i spent some time with friends and my husband and just did some thinking about where i want my life to go from here on out: things i want to accomplish, where i want to go professionally. that last one is a big one. i haven’t nailed anything down exactly yet, but the process of making those decisions has been started and is now in progress and that’s a good first step.

i feel as if i spend too much time on the computer…and not enough time doing productive things. so i think i will somewhat lessen my time here. if ye only knew how much time i spent online! ugh! it can be a time suck.

spending more time away from the computer will allow me to be productive and do more things i want to do. what things, you ask? well…

-designing a line of clothing
-writing more
-drawing more again
-learning how to paint
-making fiber art (perhaps building up a portfolio)
-spending more time with flesh and blood friends
-etc.

don’t worry…i’m not going away completely, just seeking to keep myself sane by readjusting my priorities and habits.

    i wish i had some flesh and blood friends! but seriously. they all ditched me when grad school crunch time came; many people don’t realize there’s no room for partying all the time when you’re trying to get shit done.

    anyway, writing more is one of my goals, too! i’ve gotten to the point where i don’t really want to write for an audience; i want to write for myself, to sort, to figure, to ask, and to learn. previously, i had always been a big fiction writer. i do sort of miss that.

    Love the hair color! I can’t resist red hair šŸ™‚

    My favorite pair of vintage pirate boots need their soles replaced badly! Know of a good place here in the city?

    Oddly enough, the past few weeks have been the same thing for me, as far as the personal/mental issue that have been explored. I’m glad to hear that you are doing better; maybe we can get together for some tea sometime soon.

    Wow! Your hair looks great!
    So bad those boots are on their last days šŸ˜¦

    It’s nice to hear you’re back and feeling better. Usually, I don’t have mucht time as I’d like to comment on all the blogs I read, but I DO enjoy a lot reading yours.
    You can’t imagine how much I can relate myself with that ‘too much time on the computer’ thing. Even when it’s a very important part of my job, sometimes I feel like it’s consuming a lot of energy that I should be spending finishing a bunch of projects that are I’m still in the process of making. Sure getting a break from it every now and then can be a great way to ‘refresh’ one’s mind.
    Welcome back!

    I’m online way too much also. I’ve been trying to go on a web diet but it can be a difficult habit to break. Sometimes I just have to shut all the computers(!) down so it isn’t as easy to access.

    Tricia, you look amazing, first of all. Secondly, I can totally relate to your feelings as of late. I get a bit depressed myself because I haven’t really accomplished much in my life, especially career-wise. I’ve tried my hand at a few things and nothing seems to pan out. This blog thing is the first thing I’ve really applied myself to recently, but it makes me feel guilty, because I should be doing more constructive things with my time. I’m glad you’re feeling better, I missed your posts. :] Keep your chin up, I know at least one person that greatly admires you (cough cough). Hehe.

    it’s good to have you back again, though I completely understand the “time suck” of the internet. (especially blogs. I just get lost in them, there are so many wonderful things to read and see) I think it’s good to take a step back and reassess periodically. Like cleaning out the closet of one’s life/mind. I think I do both activities about once a year – usually because I’ve overloaded myself and am a mess. On both accounts! =)

    take care of yourself, it’ll be exciting to hear what decisions you make, and the new directions you take

    your hair looks amazing and i love what you’re wearing. i’ve made it a point to spend more time with my real friends, because i’m leaving home soon and won’t get to see them again till god knows when. i hope you spend more time with yours too, though i’ll miss your posts online. šŸ™‚

    the colour on your hair is beautiful, very rich, it suits you well šŸ™‚

    i feel the same way about the computer, but for me it’s because i live by myself, and end up going online to chat with friends.

    I know what you mean about the internet being a time suck- it’s like a rabbit warren and it’s hard to drag yourself out sometimes.
    Good luck with getting your life re-balanced- sounds like you have some great things to throw your energy into, and I’m glad you’re still planning on spending time on line- you do great things and it’s fantastic that you make the time to share them with us all.
