i will be your tour guide through this fantastic fascinating indie life of mine. ok maybe not. but i am here to share with you the ups and downs of my adventures in the pursuit of the indie dream. that is, to make a living (not much, just enough to live independently and support at least a little bit of my typical frivolity) off of my craft and assorted side gigs, without much of a legit job, the ultimate goal being opening up an indie boutique/art gallery with my best friend (marisa jane), to help out the other kids like us get started.
this will take time though, lots and lots of time, and hard work, proper time management, and patience, and all kinds of noble qualities that i apparently lack. for instance, today i woke up at 1:00 pm, got out of bed at 1:30, ate some sushi (that my mom made for lunch while i was sleeping), took a shower, and now i am sitting in my bed blogging with an empty glass of iced tea and a half-crochet hat calling for my attention. this is a typical day. i will probably eventually get up, change my shirt (i dont like the one im wearing very much) and get to doing some kind of crafty work (probably finishing that hat, and maybe ill start something involving the 5 or 6 trader joe's bags of vintage ive been meaning to attend to) in the hours before and after dinner, before roaming myspace, facebook, icanhascheezburger.com, and the etsy forums doing nothing productive and then going to bed.
i presume the first step in achieving any sort of goals would be to spend my days in a more productive manner, at the very least not sleeping for half of them. and so, i am now setting my alarm clock for 7:00 am, and leaving the computer to re-fill my iced tea, finish this hat, and finish whatever the hell it was i started on tuesday.
thank you for reading, and stay tuned for the next episode, when annie rexic probably actually has something cool to say!
