Dearest Readers I have yet to had,
I’m not going to lie to you, I’m not a blog virgin. This isn’t my first time around the blog/block. Writing and journaling have been a part of my life about as long as I’ve been able to write. I love writing, especially as a form of self expression. There is nothing more cathartic for me in a time of emotional intensity to release all of my tangled, busy thoughts into words. The process of organizing my chaotic thinking process into an orderly flow of ideas on paper or in text is therapeutic. The last blog I had was dedicated to crafts and I didn’t ever feel like it was a place for me to express myself as myself. It was just pictures of scarves, art, homemade paper roses and other cool but ultimately meaningless piece of “pretty”. I gave it the ax and almost immediately wanted to start a new blog. Something less focused, but any good blogger will tell you to have a tight focus, to reach a niche.
So screw being a good blogger. And to hell with censoring how I curse like a muthafucking sailor. I’m going to be a bad blogger, and this will be filled with humor, my asinine philosphies, cursing, ecomentalist rage, my wild hair ideas and projects, my love of nature, my hatred of socks, the journey towards my goal of making things for a living, all the nerdy delights of life and more about my feelings than I’m sure any of you will care to hear.
This blog will in all likelihood develop organically. I’m sure “the focus” will become more clear over time as I write. For those of you who don’t know me yet, my name is Sarah Jane. I live in California, I’m an out of work Oompa Loompa. I’ve been accused of being a hippie but I don’t quite live up to the reputation. I’m trying to study Natural Resources as my college major, but life gets in the way from time to time. I like sewing, camping, doing shit myself, writing, video games, tabletop rpgs, music, learning about alternative building, gardening and rum.
In the near future I will be documenting my first attempt at building a bamboo yurt, so stay tuned. The yurt project has been put on temporary hiatus as I settle into my new tiny abode. But don’t fret- I’ll be share the joys and woes of living and working in 124 sq ft.
