So if you've looked at my site or Facebook or Instagram and wondered why there's been no new stuff for so long (boooo! 👎 ) and whether I'm still alive (aw thanks for caring!🥰), the short answer is... because grad school is kicking my poor old patookus at the moment. 🥵
Having ADHD, I slipped thru the cracks in the school system in the 90's, fell into the Moat of Despair and went many years without a college degree (all I had was a GED).😥 I wanted to set an example for my kiddos and all my other loved ones that higher education with ADHD is indeed possible and that it's never too late to learn.... I honestly believe that with the right support, the right tools, ADHD does NOT have to hold you back in life. Maybe you came here for the sewing, but moral support is always 100% free, especially if you're part of the neurodivergent community. 🥰 I had horrible, low self-esteem for many years and I passionately want to keep people from suffering the way I did. Whether that's through intangible moral support, or beautiful and fun well-fitting handmade stuff, I am ALL IN when it comes to spreading more self-acceptance, and joy and cheer in the world.
Oh man, grad school with ADHD is tough and tends to take up most of my time/energy, so I haven't gotten much studio time in the last 6+ months because of that. 😭 The Battle of the Thesis is at hand, and I must set my sewing mostly aside for a bit longer while I conquer this beast for the good of the realm. I shall either conquer the evil Thesis, or die on my noble academic sword come late November. Rest assured, whether House Persephone is celebrating a victory or mourning a defeat.. the sewing dungeon will be alive with the sounds of work once again after the ⚔ Battle of the Thesis ⚔ is over!! 🤩🥳
Thanks for bearing with me while I wage war on the previously-locked Castle of Academia, and hopefully come November's end, the nobility of the University of Denver will see fit to crown me a Master of HR.
Oh whoops, that's a Burger King crown. Oh well, it's the Halloween edition which I have had for years and I love it, so don't mind me. 😜
Wish me luck and come visit again in early December for previews of good things yet to come. 😁
