| I will turn any living space in which I inhabit into a jungle just watch me |
I feel like there's at least some irony involved in me being not only a candlemaker that can't handle the smell of scented candles, but also a person who knows how to craft bodycare/spa-ish stuff such as bathbombs, hand creams, body butters, lip balms, etc yet can't stand the feel of them on my skin so I never use them
as well as being an amateur jewelrymaker (wireweaving) that literally never wears jewelry and yet, I keep on making it, hording my tiny pile of shinies like a dragon.
clarifying where you live by calling it by the names given to it by dividing lines like states and cities? boring. instead describing the land upon which you dwell by a rare native plant that grows there or another natural feature, such as the wandering wildlife? much more interesting. bonus points for turning it mildly poetic or smth.
reasons why this is more satisfying-
-unless you use a super rare plant with a tiny range you make it very hard for anyone to find you
-state and city names are very boring. who wants to say they live in state wherever or city whatsit when instead you can say mildly cryptic borderline fairytale things like "I live where loveroot grows"??
-everyone gets to live in a state of confusion where no one knows exactly where everyone else lives unless you actually end up visiting them
-you can be super dramatic about your location of dwelling just because
-I don't really know where exactly I was going with this
#random #don't take this seriously I'm just so incredibly bored right now #turns out the reason we got off easy on actual thanksgiving is because the relatives were planning on doing it a couple days later #nothing like seeing these people you barely know because you've only ever seen them like once a year all your life and being expected to be casual with them #just because I'm related to you doesn't mean I know you please have mercy and let me escape24 notes
my parents: you're 20 years old please go talk to actual people your age p l e a s e socialization will not hurt you meeting people and talking is good for you
#random #mom dad pls I do not want to talk to people my age in this place #I don't know how to do this thing #I cannot relate or comprehend how their minds work at all #there are very good reasons why none of my 'friendships' ever lasted and that was because they were all just based around the other person talking and me just smiling and nodding and biting my tongue7 notes
unscented tapered beeswax candles are the best candles because for one thing, they don't give me headaches, but also they're just. a lot of fun to make.
also so satisfying to look at once the job is done like. looking at a row of smooth golden tapers, hanging in perfect pairs over their drying poles,,, nice,,,
#random #I don't really miss my candlemaking days because I had to scent everything and was constantly dealing with migraines as a result #and honestly making products to sell just sucked all the enjoyment out of it #but playing with making beeswax candles just for home use was nice #kinda want to do those again sometime5 notes
