Remember how I mentioned that I fell off the jetski over 4th of July weekend? Yes, well, I seem to have suffered some damage to my knee – or at least, reaffirmed that I have a shitty right hip and knee. When I was a kid, I would pop my hip out of the socket for jollies, and now I have horrifying arthritis in it that on some days, I can’t even walk. I had to quit my running program (okay, more like, slow smokers jog, but still…) in college because my knee would kill me, no matter how well I wrapped it.
So now, sitting for long periods and trying to walk around aggravates it. It feels “loose”, as if it were just one of those classroom skeleton knees – all wiggly and pinion-y. Actually, it’s damned unpleasant.
In other news, I’ve been messing around with setting up a Flickr account, and you can go see the photos here. I plan on adding a sidebar to this page so you can see my latest uploads. I think this might qualify me for completing another task from my 101 (for the record, there have been goals that have been updated, check to see).
I also set up an Etsy shop, but I haven’t put any of my wares up there. I’ll keep you posted with a link when I start to sell things.
I’m actually amazed at how a lot of these hobbies have fallen into place so easily: I thought that it was going to be a lot harder. That said, I know that a lot of the follow-through is going to be the difficult part – it’s easy to sit at a desk and make websites, and upload photos, and whatnot. It’s going to be a lot harder to keep my shop stocked, and make sure that I’m on top of ordering/sending things.
I’ve been doing a lot of these types of things, lately. I “work” part-time as DF’s personal assistant (he would tell you that I’m falling down on the job; I, of course, will deny that), and I amaze myself at how easy it is to get things done. I’ve found some ridiculously hard things to find, gotten quite a bit scheduled and accomplished for him. I’ve watched my mother do exactly this for years, but it never occurred to me that I could do this as a practical application – that I could actually get a lot of things done.
I guess it just amazes me that I can actually get a lot of my 101 done this way, and it never really was that hard to do. I really just had to sit down and get it done.
