Juliebarkley jumps back in


Recommended Posts

I haven't been around much since October (I think). My last challenge fizzled badly when I got busy, then sick, then busy, then sick again. I have managed to lose just about every good habit that I have ever made, and I don't like it one bit.

 

I don't have a plan for this challenge yet, but I'm not going to sit out another challenge. The only thing I'm certain will be in there is a target for all the Christmas gifts I need to get made (small gifts for coworkers). Might as well get started on those right now!

 

Back soon with a plan.

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

Welcome back!

Sometimes just getting ready for the holidays is enough to get back to the goals, especially when you are making your own Christmas gifts! 

Thanks! I hope so!

As if I would forget you, once-upon-a-time gym accountability partner! I've followed all of you challenges, but rarely have much to contribute since you defected to the Warriors. I am not a lifter. :P

Welcome back. Christmas gifts is a good challenge base. 

They should be challenging and fun, too! I'm making tatted snowflakes and kusudama origami balls (both in ornament form) for 13 people - the plan is to make a bit extra so that everybody can choose whichever they would prefer.

There, fixed that for you. :P

 

Good to see you back and challenging again. May I suggest you find a way to break the habit of getting sick as soon as life gets busy?

Found you!

 

Glad you're still at it, you know what they say about falling down and getting back up... and getting back up... and getting back up... enjoy the Christmas preparations. :)

kusudama origami balls

 

Aaaand, I've learnt something today! Both the snowflakes and the balls look like beautiful things, hope you'll have fun with that.

Living life as a Druid is about walking with the beasts. It's about being scared, looking your fears in the eyes and going on anyway. Dread doesn't go away, you just learn to know it. It's still a beast, it still has fangs, but you walk among it.

I wish I could. I also tend to get sick when I have days off, which is good for my employer, but bad for me.

I keep trying! I figure if I'm not giving up I'll get it right eventually. :)

Thanks!

 

I HAVE CHRISTMASSED! My origami is done and ready to go tomorrow. I ended up leaving the tatted snowflakes for next year. I hope my coworkers like them - there are enough different ones that everyone should be able to pick a size and shape that they like. Now I can concentrate on challenge planning. Which may end up being general life planning. We shall see!
