I have decided that the reason that I cannot binge watch or watch the television every night is because I choose to be here. At the end of the day after all of my responsibilities as well as whatever has popped up…I choose to come here. This is a priority, I may not say a lot but I will be here to say it!
I ran to Hobby Lobby after work today, in addition to the delivery of cookies that I am dropping off at my cousins tomorrow I will be making a shadowbox of the wedding invitation….it’s what I do.
I was the only one who showed up to class tonight so I got the bonus one on one class. I really did learn a lot, but I still didn’t have the facts. (I started with a photo) I called my aunt after class and I talked to her for over an hour and I can’t tell you how long it has been since that happened. She is also writing something about our family history. I’m not gonna lie, a couple of years ago that may have felt like a competition. In this stage of the game, not so much. We write for different reasons and have different goals. Anything that I write in this class I am looking at as a family history Christmas project. It is important to me but not in a I want the world to see it way. NANOWRIMO on the other hand…..will consume all of my November.
I took this class because I have dabbled in the family history for years and create meaningful gifts every Christmas. This was an obvious extension of that….All writing is practice in any form, and I will keep at it until I get better.
I learned a lot from my aunt tonight, things that I can’t believe I didn’t know… I was also advised to watch a PBS show called The Italian Americans. I guess It will explain many things. My library didn’t have it but once again the Search Ohio feature from my library has saved the day and I reserved it from a library up North.
My Tuesday was work….shop….learn….talk….write. All of this and another day with no watching of The Blacklist….I am never going to finish it before the new season starts…..Zia
