i don’t wanna work i just wanna write on my blog all day July 29, 2011
My blog title is a little goofy today, I apologize. I’m not even working at the moment, and my etsy store is set to vacation until I can get better pictures up. (Ok. So I’m a lazy f@$# and I’m unemployed. Perhaps it is a better blog title than I originally thought.) Mom and I were going to take pics with her camera when she was here, but it rained too damn much. The days it didn’t rain we wanted to go to the beach and such. Ah well. Once I am back in Wisconsin we can take pictures outside someplace. Actually, it should be quite nice with all the fall colors.
Speaking of crystals, there is a Saturday farmer’s market/ craft fair in town back home and I am all lined up to share a space there with a friend. We are both worried that we don’t have enough merchandise to occupy our own spaces at the moment, so we’re going to team up and see how it goes. Honestly, I have high hopes. I wanted to do the Saturday market in Sarasota, but it takes them two months to process a request for a space & it also costs 150 dollars a week. Yipes. I am sure it would be well worth it, but I didn’t have the start up cash. The one back home is only 25 dollars for a space, and that is going to be split between the two of us. If I sell one crystal I have made my money back. Now THAT I like. My friend and I also talked about looking into doing other craft fairs, and I am pretty excited about it. I am having mucho trouble getting my etsy store going, but if people see my crystals in real life they love the darn things. They sell very well in stores, and I know I could do great at art/craft fairs. I pray that well shot pictures with Mom’s Nikon will be just what I need to get the online store going.
Another nice thing about heading back to my hometown for a bit is that I have a couple of friends with stores who have sold my merchandise in the past. My mom has also found a store or two in Burlington that she thinks might be promising. The shops in Sarasota are hardly local artist friendly, and that has been a major disappointment. I thought because Sarasota was touristy I would have better luck. I truly feel that I’ll do just fine visiting different cities in Wisconsin and selling merchandise to shops. My goal right now is to have ten stores carrying my stuff & to make at least one sale a week off of my etsy shop. I think that’s a reasonable goal. Right? My wholesale price to shops gives me ten bucks in profit per crystal & I can make about six of them in an hour (so long as I’m not trying to watch a movie at the same time, lol). Not too shabby, right gals?
And yet another super thing is that my cousin, Jecca, told me she is willing to go cavorting about the lower half of the state of Wisconsin with me. Good deal! I figure that we can take some nice day trips as I scope out stores.
My current plan is to be in Wisconsin long enough to restore my ailing bank account. I am hoping that I can pull this off in six months, and save up enough of a chunk to be able to move again. Where will I be moving? I’m not sure. I kinda sorta accidentally started seeing a fella in Orlando, because- you know, my life doesn’t have enough complications in it. We are taking it slow, and literally have done NOTHING physical at this point, but it’s pretty obvious that we are both retardedly infatuated with each other. Le sigh. Not enough crap floating around in your head to make you so dizzy that you wanna yack? Maybe you should consider a long distance relationship. Great idea, kiddo. Ya know, I should just by myself a permanent seat on the blunder bus.
As for school, I believe what I will do for now is try to take Anatomy and Physiology II & Microbiology at some community college wherever I end up. It would be nice to get those classes out of the way when I am not on call for births and don’t have clinic. It’s too late to take them for the fall semester, but I should be able to get in after Christmas break. That way, when I do decide on where I want to be I can transfer the credits for those two classes and be ready to jump right into the good stuff.
Oh, and since I have an adorable and awesome fella chasing after me who totally doesn’t mind all my jiggly bits, I have been super inspired to bust my ass and get back to my former semi fit self. For reals, gang, this dude is doing me a huge favor. I am so keen on lookin’ good when we get around to doin’ some couch calisthenics that I have been working out like a mad woman. I went to my fitday account today, and there were crows nested in the section where my activity log once was. I didn’t know the internet could have so much dust and so many hornets nests. What’s that, fitday account, I’ve neglected you so horribly that there are raccoons living in your rafters? PREPOSTEROUS!
I must say, in spite of the current imaginary infestations, it is a pretty neat site. The calorie restrictions and calorie balance segment under the “goal weight” tab is particularly interesting. I mean, it isn’t exactly accurate or anything, but it gives you good starting points to consider.
I have a list of fourteen natural preserves in the area that I’m going to check out, because I want to jack up my level of daily activity. I need more places to hike, because I don’t like wandering around the neighborhood without my dog. I don’t feel silly hiking, going to the beach, or visiting places by myself, but for whatever reason I feel strange walking around neighborhoods alone. Don’t ask me how my goofy flippin’ brain works. I don’t have the foggiest idea.
The plan is to get up in the morning and work out for an hour and a half. After that I’ll have a nice walk for a couple of hours, and then I’ll go to the beach. I’m not working and I get pretty bored when my cousins aren’t in town, so I need something to occupy my time for the next four weeks anyolddanghow. What happens in four weeks? Well, my fella is going to be here for three or four days, & I figure that’s probably a good time to start nailing each other. Pardon me for being lewd, but I can’t help my damn self. The following weekend is Labor Day weekend, and we’re going to Macon, Georgia to visit some of his friends. After that I’m going to head to Gainesville for part of the week to see my school chums, and then I’ll be on the road back to Wisconsin.
Blerg. I guess I should be enjoying my time at the beach, and chillaxin’ and all, but it’s so much better when there’s peeps around to share the moments with. There are many things about Sarasota that I will definitely miss, and I will certainly try to get back here every year to lounge around.
I kind of want to keep writing, but I don’t want to bore the bejesuses out of everybody.
