I’m on a roll!!!
I never finish things. But now, not only did I finished and framed my dog gobelin, but I already started my cat gobelin. And that means a lot to me, because I’m such a lazy person (in general).
It also may not seem much to others, but working in needlepoint really takes a lot of patience and determination to actually finish. And those are really two things that I lack.
I’m so proud of myself. I’m allowed to say that, because it’s been a while since I’ve been productive. Usually, the only environment in which I’m productive is at work and there only if I’m left alone (with no interference from others).
I also noticed one thing: I’m very cheap with myself (with buying clothes or things that some see as a “must”) but I spend a lot of money on things that some find trivial (like my hobbies and manga’s).
I noticed this yesterday, when I went shopping with my friend.
I usually avoid going to the Mall or other shops which I know are expensive (from my point of view) but I said what the heck, it was pay day after all. And there I was, sitting with the pair of jeans on me thinking if I should buy them or not.
I was very reluctant to spend 30$ on a pair of jeans! 30 bucks, that’s cheap and I am a jeans person, plus the jeans looked good on me.
Then I thought it over: I spent in the last 3 months around 150$ on gobelins and here I am fretting about 30$ for a pair of jeans which I will get to use almost every week.
So I made a resolution: I won’t buy anymore needlepoint kits till I finish the ones I have at home, and I will buy myself a decent pair of sneakers (hopefully I won’t cry if I scratch them).
