Before I get into any of this, I want to say a the most heartfelt thank you to everyone who read and responded to Love From Adelaide Part Two.
When I wrote that, I was utterly exhausted, completely stressed with all the numbers, signatures, and such needed just to get things started in the hopes of building a house, and simply feeling overwhelmed with the world. I am unashamed to say that I am a sensitive soul, and there was a lot going on in Adelaide.
Being tired might as well be the same as drunk for me subtract the fun and flirting. So while Wanderer already snoozed away in the hotel bed, I typed that post with the ‘not good enough’ cloud surrounding my head. My childhood taught me that I don’t deserve the basics, let alone anything so wonderful as a home to truly call my own. So my not-yet-untrained childhood mind decided to rant at me about being a failure when it comes to consistency here.
Thankfully, I was able to get some sleep and read some wonderful comments to remind me that no one around here is expecting perfection of me – except for me.
So many thanks to everyone. I feel like I could use a few solid days sleep still, but I’m already back in my less stimulating bubble so I can calm down for a while.
*I’m done posting about Adelaide! Though I loved it there. I’m excited to know that, next year, I’ll be a shorter train ride away from Adelaide than I am from Melbourne now.
*My beautiful microphone arrived while I was away! Only when I saw it did it occur to me that my enthusiasm may have overshot the more practical timeline for podcasting… However, I do still have zines to record, so it’s still of use.
*I also finished my mini-zine. Pictures will be in my IZM post to come soon…
*Another week, another email catch up. If you’ve emailed me, I will get back to you within the next 48 hours.
*I am loving the wonderful happy mail that has come in while I was away. I want to take proper pictures, hence the slight delay.
*I am still working on editing the audio for DCMC 1. I really need to learn to delegate…
*Dear Anonymous 5 is still in the works, so feel free to send those letters.
*I’m working on a special issue of Don’t Call Me Cupcake for #5…
*New zine submission calls to come soon!
*I’m also working on what I hope will be an awesome new page here on the website. More details soon, because I’m secretive that way. 😉
*It’s August! How is it August already? I still don’t know what to do for a birthday celebration thing. Suggestions?
*I’m still dreaming of saving up for a badge machine, but it’s definitely on the back burner for now.
