|Dying 15 yards of fabric on my porch. Eccch.|
It's kind of a family legacy to worry a lot and feel really guilty about everything. But honestly, I just feel relieved. Because of that project I was also dropping the ball on my other jobs and commitments. My driver's license expired and I didn't realize it. Bills didn't get paid (yikes). I still have tons of grading to do. I was overwhelmed and nobody benefitted.
I see this as a big life lesson. Is it a coincidence that it happened right when I was turning 50? I don't know.
Here are some things I've learned though:
1. It's okay to say "no"
2. I'm not doing costumes again unless I have a shop, a good budget and a crew. And probably not even then.
3. Time management is effing awesome (I've heard)
There's probably some more stuff but I'm already starting to bore myself. zzzzzz I tried to take outfit photos today but there was a little snafu and now it's dark. I will say I got some pretty amazing things from the thrift store which I will be wearing soon. (hint: leopard swingy trench-YES!)
I'm finishing up the Powerpoint for the Museum presentation tomorrow. That'll be fun. I hope you are all well and taking good care of yourselves.
