Welcome inside my new computer! It has a small profile but big power! Justin's getting it all ready for me and it may be a few days before I move in. I'm a bit nervous about it because it's a big change to go back to a desktop. I know there will be lots of adjustments and I hope they're good ones! Wish us luck on this new adventure!
I finished my 9th book for the Those Books Exploration! The book was Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, the first in The African Trilogy (although it reads easily as stand alone). This one was a challenge from a content perspective, as well as feeling like it was so outside the realm of what I would normally read. When I reminded myself that that was like...the point.. then I eased into it more and really could appreciate it. And it wiggled its way into my heart, even though some things I thought were really not okay. Very odd combination of reading experiences throughout, that's for sure!
I took a risk and went to Value Village to pick up a grab bag. I have always loved grab bags. I think they are the most exciting things because you just never know what will be inside and that is so amazing. I bought this one which wasn't cheap ($10) and had this fun idea that if I could make a piece from here and sell it for $10 then I would have paid for the materials. And then I got all freaked out and deleted the post on Facebook. Still, some of the items inside were amazing and definitely worth $10 just for the chains alone which are not cheap. I am still struggling with the kind of jewellery I want to make but I'm going to try and just let it happen.
