Psst! Can you keep a secret?
Can you keep a secret? Excellent!
Then let me tell you what I’ve been up to these past few weeks. I know I shouldn’t, really, as it’s far too early but I can’t help myself. I’m far too excited…
After three years of planning and preparations, I’ve finally reached a stage where I get to build something visible!
Not just thinking about it, making flow charts, researching best practices and buying the tools required, but actually creating something with my own hands again.
There are few things I love more.
I can’t tell you exactly what it is I’ve been working on for so long, but I can spill two little beans today.
1) It is something that involves a crazy amount of writing, editing and graphic design.
2) It also relates to (my) New Year’s resolutions, and on New Year’s Eve I went a little bonkers and told my imaginary muse companion about it.
Yes, I know. Those little beans weren’t particularly enlightening, but I guess there’s one more thing I could tell you. The sheer sight of unclaimed white space turns me into a drooling pup; so I did take notes of my last few thoughts for 2021, the first thought for 2022, and a rather weird pillow talk that I had with my muse in the middle of the new year’s night.
It’s nothing special, really, just a little Happy New Year and welcome to 2022 musing that I wrote in the very first hours of the new year. I have many misgivings about what lies ahead of us, and much sadness in my heart over what the last two years have brought, so it’s not a very positive text I’m afraid. But it Is a part of me, so it deserves a place on the blog spaces that bear my name: Frk Styf (in Swedish) and Ms Styf.
Right, the new year has begun and I’ve managed to keep up with my Sisyphos project so far, even though I’ve had to rethink the order and priority of things. Very little of what I’ve been doing so far has been visible (apart from Lïnnéa’s pandemic panic room), but I’ve been able to track my progress in the growing number of ticks on my to-do lists.
Right, I’m going to leave this post here and crack on with stuff that needs doing. Like feeding my self-loathing for not being able to get shit done at the rate I would like to.
If you found your way here, read this text, and still want to know more about this secret I’m talking about, you can head over to Frk Styf or Ms Styf (links above) and read the posts there. You can also check out the Linktree in the top menu for links to all the places you can find me and my stuff online.
Please, if you have time, leave a little comment before you go. They mean the world to me and help me prove to google and other search engines that I do, in fact, exist. Come to think of it, I could do with a reminder too… 😏
Thanks for stopping by today!
I see you and appreciate your visit.
