Life update

It’s been a while since I posted here, so here’s a quick update on my life. I finished my BA degree in December (graduation’s in May!) and started my MA in January. Linguistics is so much fun to study – everything about it fascinates me! I know with every fiber of my being that linguistics is the right path for me, and I am so grateful to be able to study a subject I have so much passion for.

I haven’t been doing much writing lately that isn’t school-related, but I have been making things. I spent several months last year taking tons of soapmaking classes, perfecting my recipes, and becoming an Advanced Certified Soap Maker through the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetics Guild. I hope to get my website up and running soon, but that of course takes a backseat to school & work, so in the meantime I am selling my soap via direct contact – if you want some, contact me!

I’ve started sewing again, too, after a several year hiatus. It is the only crafty hobby I have which doesn’t seem to aggravate the tendinitis in my wrists at all (as long as I use my ergonomic rotary cutter instead of scissors!). My most recent project has been the Mama Bridgette & Mama Victoria bundle from Made for Mermaids – I highly recommend these patterns for relatively quick and easy lingerie – comfortable, too! I’m not affiliated or anything; just sharing a great pattern!

Anyway, that’s a quick run down on me. What have you been up to?
