Hello, My name is Pen.

Featured

How do you even start writing?  I’m not David Copperfield, though I was born.  As opposed to being created and turned on into operation like a robot or something.  I guess I was pulled out instead of pushed.  Does that mean I was removed into this world?  Gods, I can barely think.  I’m watching The Big Bang Theory sitting on a couch that isn’t mine in a state I’ve never been to before.  I’m sad that Sheldon doesn’t say Bazinga anymore.  I really hope I can keep this up.  I keep starting new journals and diaries but i never continue them.  maybe it’s because the pen can’t keep up with my thought process.  Sorry Pen.

To clarify, I’m in Colorado.  This is to clarify the state and couch that isn’t mine.  It’s snowing outside and it’s the first snow I’ve seen this winter.  I really want a hot cocoa.  Ben and I are up visiting his family for the holidays.  Yule is pretty much over and we’re moving into the Christmas celebrations.  Things are really awkward because Ben’s uncle is really conservative and we’re…. well, not.  Let me explain:

I’m a Heathen Green Witch.  I follow the path of the Norse beliefs and believe that I can help the universe and our world by creating things and giving them a special purpose in this world.  I go thrift shopping and worry about global warming and how i can create a better world for my son.  I’m also depressed and anxious to a medicated level that we’re still working on finding.  I believe I may be schizophrenic but I haven’t been diagnosed yet.  I try to be as open and honest as I can with everyone around me because I have nothing left to lose.  I feel that trying to force people to believe in specific beliefs is futile and the only thing you can do is say your bit and move on.  I’m polyamorous.  I know that I have enough love in my heart to give to more than just one partner.  I’m not a slut.  Most of the time, my partners are there for me when I have breakdowns and need help getting to the hospital.

This blog will be about me, my life, my partners through my eyes, and all the little voices in my head that like to have a say.

We have the technology!!!

I finally signed up for an email address for green witch creations.  I’m really excited to finally start being more business like…

We’re about to have our first showing at The New Age Shop in Des Moines on July 23rd.  If you wanna stop buy and say “HI!  OMG I follow your blog and I want to buy one of everything!”  Please, feel free.

I’m really hoping to save up enough money to be getting a camper soon so I can have my own little space.  Not that I mind sleeping in the living room or anything (Thank you Crystal and Adam) but there is just something about sleeping in your own room that doesn’t get invaded every morning (and rightly so… the TV is there) that seems really nice.

Also, i’m totally naming it the Platform 529 3/4 because i’m amazing and play on fandoms is awesome.  If anyone has suggestions for what else I should paint on my camper or if you would like to suggest anything for me to make and sell feel free to send me an email.

GreenWitchCreations@gmail.com is officially open for business.

I am also planning on adding pictures of all our products that we sell… i’m just not sure on how to do that yet since I deleted the etsy shop.

Purple fingers of fun!

So this morning was a bust.  Reaching out to friends and family all morning making sure that everyone is safe and dry.  Des Moines had an emergency evacuation last night due to rising flood waters and the Saylorville Dam is getting close to overflowing.  There was even an announcer for Drake University that drowned in his vehicle.

Luckily for us, most of the people we know were safe at home or at a friends house.  Afterwards was a short time for sitting, chatting, and crafting.  I’m trying to get stock up for the Psychic Fair at the Des Moines New Age Shop on the 23rd of July so Crystal is making A TON of Pussy Hatsdownload.jpg

And I’m currently working on a witch hat.  It’s not as big as I was trying to make it and I’m not sure if i’ll like it very much.  Ugh.  I’m so picky.

So anyway.  We decided that we wanted to check out the water levels around us.  We hopped into the suburban and drove down to one of the boat access ways couldn’t even see the parking area it was so flooded.  After spending about 10 minutes taking pictures and chatting, we all got back into the suburban and headed for the dam.  We had a lot of fun looking out over the waters then headed down to the lower part of the dam.

There we found a mulberry tree.  We picked all the bottom branches clean of all of the ripe ones and filled up a plastic bottle with them.  We also picked a few mint clippings and brought fresh growth from the mulberry tree home so that we could get them to resprout and plant them at home.  The mulberries we picked were amazing in the vinaigrette that Crystal made.

All in all, today was a pretty good day.

 

Crying tears of…. wtf

So, I quit McDonalds in Pella.  They’re ridiculously understaffed, even as I waited patiently for my final 2 weeks of work to end, 5 people either quit or got fired.

I am losing my shit as one after another crew members (essentially children) call in to quit or are fired for being arrested.

That’s right.  McDonald’s is Gangsta.

So…. that’s the good news..

The bad news is that even before i put in my two weeks, I had been applying to other jobs in and around the community.  Did i hear back?  Nope.  Not a one.

So now i’m about to get my last paycheck thinking ‘how tf am i going to get money to pay for gas’

~Insert tears of dispair~  I don’t dare breathe a word to my old coworkers cause all they would say is “you can come back to work anytime!” and my answer would be to stick out my tongue at them… then reapply….

Midnight…. We meet again….

I’m so over not sleeping but my silly little brain likes to leave my pills in the van.  Of course every time i go out to get them… I get distracted.  3 Times by Darla (cat) curled up on a chair on the porch…. I’m a terrible person.  but probably not.  Youtube is both my friend and my enemy at this point.  I keep trying to find things to read or comment on but i’m not good at finding those sorts of things.

Reddit?  I still don’t understand how that works.  Yeah.  I know, i’m getting old, shut up.

no wait, come back!  I’m sorry, that was mean of me.

Can we still be friends?  Yes you can call me old but only if i get to make fun of the fact that you like justin beiber.  fair?  fair.

Okay… so youtube…. enemies…. OH!!!  So, sleeping on my best friends couch is pretty cool.  I get to have the living room to myself, I get to sleep with my dog Nova… and then reality sets in and I end up getting the creepy crawlies all night (My apologies if you continue reading and get them too)

I have picked several ticks off of myself about every other night.  Usually I can head this off by performing tick checks on Nova (in particular), Diesel, and Smaug.  Smaug is a bit difficult because he is old and doesn’t care for laying on his back.  Diesel is rambunctious but usually doesn’t have any on him.  Nova, on the other hand usually has anywhere from 1-3 on her at night.  I usually try to do the checking after I get home from work since the dogs will have been outside if not all day, then part of the day.

YAAAAAAY country living.

Youtube beginnings

For several weeks now, my friend Crystal and I have been talking about ways that we can make money from home.  Not a get rich quick thing or anything.  More like, trying to make ends meet and have a little on the side for savings.  I’m still trying to save for my camper and Crystal and her hubby, Adam, are trying to save for land of their own.  They currently rent but we want to practice a bit of homesteady stuffs.

So far i’ve monetized my blog and Adam has a youtube channel and Crystal and I thought that it would be a good idea to try to start one up.  Of course, we have to try to get content and we have to have an editing app for the video.  Who knows.

I’m super dumbed down today because all that’s been on the tv has been kids shows….

Jimmy Eat me

Feeling really displaced. I know I have places to go wherever I need but nothing to call my own. I have stuff but nothing to put it in that I don’t feel like I’m talking up space.

Transitional states are so hard for me. I like change but I don’t like endings. Often times when change happens,I feel like something is ending. Nothing is but I can’t shake that feeling.

Fuck you taylor swift.
