Life Update


Long time, no post! I’m not quite sure why this blog had to become the sacrifice with all of the stuff going on in my life lately, but it has. Facebook still gets a little bit of love, as do Tumblr and Pinterest even. Yet Cornucopia of Craft was just left to sit on the sidelines.

When I started this blog, the primary intention was to post anything that had to do with crafts, anything from writing to knitting and drawing. Ever since I gave birth to my daughter back in November 2010, the posts got a little less frequent. Then, after I started college in the Fall of 2011, the posts became a “once in a blue moon” kind of thing. My life has certainly still been filled with all of the crafts and various creative activities… I just haven’t been updating about it.

There is a time and a place to update this blog. I am sure that as I continue to live, I will find the time and patience to update more often. As of now, I find it difficult to even sit down for an extended amount of time to write. I feel like I have to get up and change my activities frequently, or else nothing will get done! (I am sure that is partially an illusion I am feeding myself.)

I’ve become somewhat of a social hermit, only hanging out with my immediate family and my boyfriend, and occasionally my friends. School only brought out the introvert even more, for homework sucks out a lot of time that I could spend doing any number of things.

Currently I am approaching the end of the Summer semester, after having taken a Philosophy class and a Literary Analysis class. It’s been fun, but also challenging. With the Philosophy class, it was 5 weeks of having to write an entire essay once a week. I somehow managed to get by just fine. Then I will have 3 whole weeks of freedom until the Fall semester starts. It feels like school has been going on forever, but it really hasn’t. 2 years isn’t shit, as they say.

Lilah has been a wonderful girl. She has gotten so big, and her vocabulary expands in multitudes every day, it seems. She can grasp concepts that astound me, for it feels like just yesterday I was holding her tiny body in my arms. Before I know it, she’ll grow up… but that’s still a while down the road. Sometimes I feel guilty for going to school so late in the game, but I think that Lilah made me want to do something with my life, so that is why I started going.

So… life goes on. Maybe I will update again soon. 🙂
