Excessive Project Syndrome

Hi. I’m Charlie, and I have a problem.

(Hi Charlie!)

What kind of problem is that, you may ask?

(What kind of problem is that?)

Is there an echo here? LOL

OK. Rambling aside, I do feel like I have a genuine problem. And while I realize that it isn’t exactly support group material (yet), it does cause some issues. Let me explain:

My name is Charlie, and this is my second ever blog. As I write this, I’m under the covers in my bed, Judge Judy is on in the backgroud, my partner is trying to peer over my shoulder, and my head is a jumble of in-cohesive muckyness. My problem is, that I’m always this way. That is, my head doesn’t tend to like to focus all that much. Let’s call it undiagnosed acute attention defi…defi…um…where was I?

I have a projecty mindset. I don’t like to sit still for too long, which definately makes my downtime interesting. I love the feel of yarn and thus I love crocheting and knitting. I love the feel of tomato leaves smooshed between my fingers, thus I love gardening. I love the smell of flour and seeing it turn into a massive mess on my kitchen counter, thusly, I love to cook.

There’s the problem. I love to do too many things!

The blog that I have currently was created just last summer to help me with my memory coming out of a rather traumatic surgery and recovery time. I used it like a diary of sorts, and I enjoyed it so much! Then, as I got progressively more bored sitting in my new apartment watching the Summer go by as I was still in recovery mode, I started finding new hobbies, and I would blog about them. Then, as the Summer ended, so did the “hobby” postings. They evolved into their own entity, a mumbling jumbling mass of over-excitedness maybe… In essence I posted about everything, and it was hard to get what wanted to get out of my head…out of my head!

I had contemplated for the longest time the creation of a second blog, one that I could use as a somewhat professional side of me. I’ve taught myself how to crochet, and I would like to start to publish patterns online. Thanks to my boyfriend (who can cook…if he really tries), I’ve turned into a total foodie, and enjoy updating my online friends with nice photos and would like to possibly post recipes as well. There are a lot of things that I had wanted to do with my current blog, but due to the site did not deem it…possible maybe?

I hope you enjoy what I’ve got to offer the blogosphere, and hang in there with me, and we’ll see what this baby can do!


About charliebenn

I like writing about what my world is, whether that be gardening, cooking, drawing, my relationships, job, and yes, sometimes I ramble about how much I love writing. And also hate it. :)
