Decided I need to indulge in a few mid-week confessions this week. Here it goes...
1. I cannot stand it when people think their hobby should be their profession. No. No it should not be. I blame this on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, and other social media outlets (two people tell someone what they did is pretty and suddenly the person thinks they have a new calling). Just because you can sew doesn't mean you should be selling clothing. Just because you have a nice camera does not mean you are a photographer. Just because you can use wire and ribbon does not mean you were magically meant to have an Etsy shop. Now, I know some very talented people who do awesome things, but, please, not every hobby is meant to be a job. There is a lot more work behind the scenes than just executing your craft or your picture. Keep your hobby just what it is-- a hobby. (unless it's cake pops...)
2. When people who clearly aren't listening then proceed to ask 6,000,000 questions that were already answered (when they weren't listening).
3. I wish every horrible disease and illness got as much attention as ALS is getting right now (and without the gimmick!).
I have other things I would love to confess here, but it's not the appropriate place for those confessions. My next post will be the big back-to-school post!
