    Do you have any projects you're working on right now?

No! And that feels like a problem. I haven't made something unrelated to work in months, and I'd like to rediscover my passion for creativity. I didn't leave myself enough room for it in college, and I'm hoping to find a new hobby from this series.

    Do you have any projects that've fallen by the wayside?

What a silly question: Of course! Everyone does. I have the skeleton of a webapp buried deep, deep within my closet. It was a freelancing project I was doing as a favor to a family member, and it's the type of thing I think about once a week with a tinge of guilt. I'm going to work on this for the next month, and hopefully have a finished work by the start of the new year! Getting this out of my headspace will free up some worry for other things.

    Is there any new type of crafting that you'd like to explore?

Tons! The selection process has been difficult, though. I took a glassblowing class a few months ago, and I've been thinking about it since then. Same for pottery. I've always been fascinated by calligraphy, but I've always been bad at calligraphy.

Like I said earlier, I'm hoping this series will help me refine my interests. The plan for now is to make this decision as I work on the old webapp project. Ideally, I'll have something to sample when I finish the old project!

    Would you like your username to be tagged in the weekly thread?

No, fuck off.
