the problem with using doing all your chores as a way to prove that your world is ordered and clicking cheerfully down the right track is that when your dryer breaks and you can't do laundry for two weeks straight you feel that this is the first tendril of Chaos creeping into your Eden.

my job is boring so i don't talk about it but like. today i did a minor task without really being asked to and got real appreciation for it & last week sent a damage control email to an upset customer and bcc'd my boss, who responded to me with "a perfect response" and it's just so good to feel like the things i do are appreciated and get feedback that isn't just "you're doing it wrong"

I just unraveled 26 inches of scarf because I misread the pattern
My perfectionism was so much better when it was just preventing me from writing papers in college

I keep a daily planner to record things that happen that day. This is yesterday’s in its entirety. I think perhaps that first line is wrong.

the worst thing about crafting is when you have to buy things that you need but are incredibly boring. for example, i need blocking mats because you shouldn't leave wet wool on carpet for 8 hours and i don't wanna spend money on them

I derive SO much mean pleasure from making my mom wait until Christmas for the scarf she saw, wanted, and “asked” me to make

miscellaneous knitting complaints:
1. i hate
working with fingering (i've got big hands! it's so tiny and delicate!!)
the first 2-3 lines of a new project when everything Looks Wrong
2. there's another yarn store near-ish me! yay! but it's like half an hour drive on the Worst road & i'm lazy

the other day i had to move the cabled scarf i knitted, which meant holding it for the first time since i finished it & it's the single most beautiful item i've ever made. i'm so proud of myself.

woe is me, i thought i had vodka and i don't and i have to go out again, hélas, i am the unhappiest of women, desolate as Andromeda chain'd to the rocks, or Ariadne left on Naxos

the problem with getting rid of Items to feel like i'm Making a Change combined with Actually Being Better About Not Buying Stuff I Don't Need means that i really want to get rid of Items and i don't have any Items to get rid of. hoist on my own responsible petard.
