2020 I think I am done with you

2020 I think I am done with you

Remember the time right around now last year? We were excited about 2020. We were doing reviews on how our last decade was and made plans what the new decade will look like. We were all excited about 2020 because see how beautiful it looks when writing. So neat, so innocent, so perfect… 2020 I think I am done with you. You did not keep your promise and yesterday I decided I don’t need you anymore.

Dear 2020… you start to annoy me. You make me feel like it is February and yet when I look at the calendar it says November. Where did the time go? What did I spent those month with? I hate wasting time. It is so inefficient. Don’t get me wrong I love my “nothing” time but I choose to waste it. Now you are taking control and the seconds, minutes, hours and days just slip by.

Dear 2020… you show the worst in mankind. So many egocentrics. So many crazy people. So many people who use this pandemic to place their twisted political believes. This scares me. It destabilizes societies and open up ways to believes we would otherwise have energy to battle. But we do not. We are trying to survive. Literally.

Dear 2020… you don’t give us a break. It just started all over again. Lockdowns, frustrations, financial anxiety, keeping distance, not seeing friends, not hugging loved ones.

Dear 2020… you make fun of me. My word of the year was moxie. Yes I see the irony. All those exciting things I wanted to do. All those projects to tackle. All this things to cross off my list. I tried. I don’t care you are laughing. But you know, it is not very nice. Have a look around to 2019 or 2018 they were mean but they were also nice.

Dear 2020… you bring out boredom. But not in the good way. Those days where I start to annoy myself. It is one of the unproductive kinds of boredom. Where you just want to go to bed at 7 pm because you are just so done with everything. I have had enough of those days already. Not even a book can swep me away.

Dear 2020… thank you for not being as terrible as you could be. Thank you for my healthy family. Thank you for a job that pays money. Thank you for a lovely home. Thank you for the husband. Thank you for still laughing in this house despite everything.

Dear 2020… lets part soon and keep each other in our memories but let’s just be friends for a phase in life and not make it a permanent relationship. 2020 I think I am done with you and you have given me your everything. And if you have more to give please don’t.

Bye Bye

eBook organization – helpful tips and tricks

eBook organization – helpful tips and tricks craftaliciousme seeking creative life

After we talked about snatching up those eBook deals it’s time to get some organization done. I didn’t start this right away. After a while I realized I am having a ton of books on my kindle but can’t really find what I am looking for. Or what I am in the mood for. Today I share my eBook organization with you – there might some helpful tips and tricks in here that you can adapt. Let’s get started:

A gift for someone I don’t know – Operation Christmas Child

Remember when I was a Christmas Elf? I had decided to do a bit of volunteer work and my sister joined me for the past two years. While we were helping out in the Christmas workshop the first year we already decided to do it an annual tradition. So late September we agreed on a date that was working for both of us and we signed up for another shift at the workshop. This year I have a bit more time to get my gift for someone I don’t know. Luckily I kept some notes the past years and they did help in deciding what to shop this year.

My Art Wishlist

I do like art. You might have already guessed so much when looking at the continuous Instagram accounts I share here. I even wanted to do my Highschool degree in art but than I would have to take math as a second major. Which wouldn’t have worked out so well. Art has always been part of my life in some form or another. One of my plans is to invest in some real art piece within the next couple years. Currently I am compiling an art wishlist.

VIRTUAL COFFEE DATE | NOVEMBER 2020

virtual coffee date craftaliciousme seeking creative life

A couple months ago Lecy hosted the last Coffee Date for us. I wasn’t able to participate on our last virtual gathering but I kinda liked the series and so I continue on and hope you enjoy my unfiltered ramblings for now.

If you and I had coffee…
… I would need to whine about the water damage that we were made aware of this past Friday. Our neighbors rang our bell asking if we had any leaks. I check everything and even removed a bit of kitchen cabinets to have a look but couldn’t find anything. Monday afternoon our landlord rang the bell to have a look. We couldn’t quit locate the issue but it was apparent that the wall was wet. So He came back Tuesday afternoon and I had to remove the washer and moved cabinets and all. Unfortunately our washer hose has some issue and all the water – for who knows how long – has been dripping down the wall. We didn’t see any leaks in our apartment and we had no issue with the washer. We still don’t know what really happened but we are now living with emptied out cabinets and a washer in the middle of the kitchen for the next weeks (months) until everything is dry again. If we are lucky that is all there is otherwise we have to contact insurance and it will get expensive. While it is lucky we do not have a broken pipe and need to open up walls it still isn’t really cool. Currently we are both in the home office and we are tripping over all the junk. Hoping it will resolve soon.
