The last week (few days?) have been really interesting for me. And by "really interesting," I kind of mean "mildly irritating."

Let's begin:

Three months ago, I found the Someday Syndrome blog via via via, and was really impressed. I also learned that he was offering a 'choose your own price' for his workshop/life coaching. How cool! I'm poor but I could have actually gotten some really helpful advice! But I put it off, was going to buy it when I got my tax return (blew it all on meaningless fluff, really), and then forgot about it for a month. Then I started following him on Twitter, saw him mention a discount coming in May, and realized I'd missed my window. Now I'll likely NEVER be able to afford it which is a real shame. Because, as we can see, I am really skilled at "Someday."

One month ago, I learned about the Editor and Columnist positions at Handmade News. At the time, they were taking suggestions for departments as well. I got the idea for a "trend" department, following the worlds of fashion, jewelry, interior design, etc. And of course I'd be the editor! But I didn't apply, I told other people about it, but I didn't apply. I told [personal profile] habibiti about it, she applied, but I didn't. She's Batty, applied AND got a columnist position, but damnit I didn't apply! FINALLY, she sends me a DM on Twitter that she's heard the "Greenwise" department is hiring. So a full day later, I manage to polish my resume and pick a writing sample from my Green Plan(t) blog.

No word yet, but I probably won't get it because I waited so damned long. And btw, it's a paying writing gig, only one of my biggest dreams.

Yesterday, one of the patrons of Knit Las Vegas, who regularly sets up merchandise of hers (why she gets such a primo spot in the store, I have no idea) brought in an enormous (and vaguely awesome) knitting bag. Which, as it turns out, she's selling now. Inside, I see a reinforced (I think) area for holding patterns/magazines, and two smaller pockets "for any little things." FUNNY how those two things were features I had described to another patron that I was going to put in the bags _I_ was going to make for the store. FUNNY how it was just two weeks ago. FUNNY how the woman making the bags described a 'the-owner-suggested-needle-rolls-but-I-didn't-want-to' scenario when _I_ am going to make needle rolls for the store. Not saying anything, just saying.

Okay, Universe, I get it. Get off my lazy ass and do it NOW before I see more of my unique ideas out there with someone else's name on them.

I checked my email after writing the previous entry and read:

Act with faith, Amy. Prepare the way for your inevitable success. To the degree you can, behave as if your dreams have already come true, as if you already owned a profitable business, as if later today you were going to accomplish what you set out to do today. And you shall see the power you wield as the floodgates begin to tremble, the elements begin to conspire, people in your life begin to change, insights are summoned, comprehensions soar, and clarity is born.


Not to mention fierce, wild animals laying down when you pass by -
    The Universe

Pretending is so powerful, Amy. Look how far it's already taken you.
