Technically, I could have started my studies last week, but I have started them this week.
It feels really odd to start up again. I wasn’t studying in the end of the last term, of last year. I had the new job, and the classes that I have left to do, have a LOT of work in them.
So it really has been a while. Well, since I’ve been studying online since 2022, every term and semester. It’s a bit hard to get back into the swing of things. The first hour I was honestly having an hard time to get into a stream.
The first thing I suggest that when you are trying to get back into the swing of things, turn off all distractions. Turn off anything and everything that serves as a distraction. If say, having a crime channel on in the background doesn’t bother you, have it on. Personally, I can’t have total silence, it was very eerie. I need something, you just have to make sure it’s not too noisy.
If you have kids, you will probably need to schedule, and stick to it. Do they have a “nap time” for at least an hour, where you can at least start. Can someone babysit for a few hours? Don’t do any cleaning, just study. I don’t have children, but I know that every child and bringing them up can be VERY different from one child to the other, let alone in the same household!
What do you need to do, to go back into the swing of things?
As you can see from my previous post (May Goals). I have decided that I am going to start at least researching about how I might be able to do this and start creating a small home business. I decided after initially being inspired by putting “Magic Monday” , which is one of my Blog categories) onto a jar for myself. Why not pursue this further? Using my own quotes and seeing if I can draw any kind of designs to come up with. Maybe place these on cushions and see what happens from there?
The only problem with this site, is that you can’t inscribe anything on the jars. However, I am sure I can find something that would allow me to do so. I have only just really started, so I have literally just been Googling everything at the moment. I would like some advice or some inspiration. Have any of you done this, or are currently doing something like this at the moment?
Ironically as well, this was my Horoscope for the week (Taurus)
So as you have probably heard by now, this is one of the biggest weeks of –arguably – your life! No kidding. This week sees the planet of revolution and rebellion, Uranus, bursting into your sign like a massive bolt of electricity that leaves every hair on your body standing on end.
So what do you have to look forward to? Well, change, awakenings and liberation, to name three things. It might be a bumpy ride but the shackles are falling away.
This is for all my drawing/artist/creative type readers/Home Business followers…At the moment I have two casual jobs and while I enjoy both of them I am just not making enough money. I’m making enough to “survive” and luckily my partner and my mum charge me rent/bills on a percentage of what I make, rather than a set amount.
As I mentioned before I really do enjoy where I’m working at both places, I am really lucky that all my co-workers are lovely people and even with that one expected customer that’s always causing trouble. The work is good too, not to difficult that I just can’t do it, but keeps me busy and my mind off other things. Some weeks though I just don’t get the shifts, which when you’re a casual means, you get paid…well…nothing.
So this is where all my drawing/artist/creative type readers/Home Business followers come into play. I want to do something from home where I can make money as well. I love doing little crafty things and I would love to make a little business of bits and bobs. However, I have no idea where to start. So I was hoping that someone could give me ideas of any web pages or any sites that are good for people who want to get started, what sites are good to sell on, any legal information I may need. I was thinking of making things like:
Themed candles as well as just random scented
Handmade cards for all occasions
I am writing a couple of stories and am even writing what I call “script ideas” for a tv show for a role playing game that I used to play and I would love to be able to draw. I am a very visual person, but I am honestly also too lazy to learn how to draw properly. I can start and try, but I’d probably never get to the point where I could sell the art. The writing is mainly for myself and I’m not sure that I have to confidence to try and sell the ideas to someone either…It makes me feel kind of sad too at the same time as well. Who doesn’t want to be the next J.K. Rowling?
