Melancholia

Thus is my mood.

I worry a lot. I am a huge worrier, and always have been for as long as I can remember. The feeling is part of my everyday, and since I’m so inside my head, it’s hard for me to discern the nonsense from the serious… So everything becomes categorized as a Code-Red-Danger-Will-Robinson situation.

I’ve been in something of a slump lately when it comes to doing those serious business things – in my case, really thinking and planning out my near future and making preparations for them. I always try to take things one step at a time, since there’s no point in freaking out about step 10 when I haven’t even gotten to step 1.

So, in procrastinating during the three day weekend, I somehow stumbled onto a popular goth youtuber’s channel. I don’t necessarily identify with this subculture, but It’s Black Friday is fun and interesting to look at, and also seems really nice and has a generally positive message and attitude in her videos. I watched quite a few of her videos, but one in particular really resonated with me:

It wasn’t her situation in particular that I identify with, but her message and her outlook that I admire. Faced with tough choices, she ultimately did what’s right for her in striving for happiness, and that’s something I think is really brave.

Another thing I did to procrastinate was redress a couple of my dolls.


Rory (top) is wearing a shirt by MINIJIJO, pants by Missblythe2012, and stock shoes. I put her hair in a fish tail braid. Elowyn (bottom) is wearing a shirt by C’mon Dolly, skirt by Missblythe2012, and stock shoes (I actually switched Elowyn’s shoes out to pink converses and put these ankle boots on Rory). I like how Rory looks in red!

I have to get back to crafting for my dolls, but making human size things (socks…) has kind of taken over my life XD. Glad to be starting the work week on a Tuesday, and I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend or just weekend (depending on where you are in the world)!

    • I’m tempted to make another miss Blythe order! I’m finding I like miniaturized versions of real people clothes! Or rather, clothes I wish I had in my wardrobe XD. Yeah… It’s hard but I need to buckle down and get to it, since time is seemingly wanting to speed on by.

  1. Ah! Black Friday (Youtuber) is awesome! Also… how is it Black Friday? What else does Black Friday refer to other that the Friday after Thanksgiving when everyone tries to kill each other over sales in stores?

    • Oops.. I misread “…but It’s Black Friday is fun…” as “…but since it’s Black Friday, it’s fun…” and thus my confusion. Forgive me, I’ve not been awake long. I see more caffeine is needed…

      • I also do that sometimes XD. I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to refer to her as “Black Friday” or “It’s Black Friday.”
