Crochet and stuff

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 5, 2015, 8:27 AM
Hey all! Sorry for not posting anything for a while and I would be rather slow for a while. I'm having much, much less leisure time. The ongoing event I vaguely mentioned before that turned me nocturnal has gone through the next and final phase so I'm getting closer to living a normal life and that includes being diurnal. That's good in a way - I'm no longer having the problem of being innocently assigned some work during my bed time because people forget that it is my bedtime. However it also means less computer time for me because the two laptops in the house are usually totally possessed by my mother and my younger brother.

Also, this phase of the ongoing event includes a lot of furniture repairs and that includes DIY stuff (like building IKEA furnitures :P) and bits of simple carpentry so I have to say I'm enjoying myself a lot. I get to try more saws other than the large toothed one I was entrusted with for the bonfire. Going around equipped with a big bottle of glue, a furniture pen, a brush, a can of lacquer and a walnut is a lot of fun as well. I also get to try wallpapering but it's definitely not my thing.

Apart from that, I finally found the crochet hook my mom bought me last month and found out that I can only find 1.75/1.35mm needle hook and a size 2 yarn which aren't really meant for each other. Nevertheless, I've started out on some very uneven projects - first a tutorial where I learn to cast off and do simple stitches, a wristband for my sister and now I'm making a long sash for myself. These really robbed me away off the rest of my leisure time. I'll upload pictures when I have the time.

Thankfully though, my art stuff are finally in my reach again - just needs a bit of unpacking - but I can't start painting or anything until the whole mess is settled and I believe that may take a few more months.

And I can tell that when it does, the subject of A levels would pop up again *sigh*.

EDIT: Oh and the other thing I forgot to mention is that some of my computer time has already been 'booked' by the collaboration writing project I have with my siblings. And I need some hefty brainstorming because their plots are so... random :P

A vibrant young girl, polished and petite
With a will so strong it's hard to compete
Presenting to her father her flying rainbow chart
Proof in ink of the years she spent working hard

With pride and satisfaction she said to her father
I know what to pursue now that my school years are over
I want to unlock the secrets of shapes and off colours
And share with the world my thanks in my pictures

Please father, please, would you give me your support
For me to work out my life on what's close to my heart
I know that you wanted something else of me
But father, I beg you say yes, father please

Now the years have passed and the ages have changed
She now has a daughter who once was her age
Though never she seems like who mother had been
She too has a passion that fuels her dreams

Though her mother had decided to give delight to the eyes
Junior choose the art to protect and survive
But like her grandfather before, her mother does not see
Why her daughter has said: This is what I wish to be

Please mother, please, would you give me your support
For me to work out my life on what's close to my heart
I know that you wanted something else of me
But mother, I beg you say yes, mother please

Mother, father please, would you give me your support
For me to work out my life on what's close to my heart
I know that you wanted something else of me
But father, mother, say yes, pretty please.
Say Yes
This is a lyric to a song I wrote and like all of the songs I've written, I'm happier with the lyrics than I am with the music. My piano skills are still very very basic (and ukulele even so) and with the hundred and one interests I have, learning to play is quite slow. I'm also not taking music classes of any sort so if I can't find anything simple to play in the background, I'll just do a capella recording one day and put up the link here.

The song was written on impulse which is why some of the lines doesn't seem to... fit into the context. I like it enough as it is but I'll see if I can find a way to make the ballad sounds smoother. I can't remember if I've mentioned that several weeks ago, part of the 'homework' assigned by my martial arts teacher was some hefty 100 reps of three simple exercise (variations of squatting, sit ups and push ups) after performing each of the 5 daily prayers per day for the course of a week as well as a few other optional workouts. When my mom noticed that we were all acting rather weird that week, she asked and we explained the assignment to her. She laughed and said something to the effect of 'we're idiots for thinking that our teacher was serious because that is practically impossible'.

It hurt deeply how my mom takes what I really care for so lightly. And we didn't manage to complete the challenge because we had some visitors twice and my mother made sure that we were there a hundred percent of the time. Since they were at the house in the daytime for quite a while,  I was then - and still currently - adopting a nocturnal bedtime (too long to explain but I sleep from morning to mid afternoon), they came during my bedtime and that seriously messes up my workout schedule and not getting enough sleep make it much, much harder to work.

Although in the end I think I missed only 300 out of the 3,500 sets (which honestly I initially thought was impossible myself), I still wish I could get it done by the 'first try'. I know that it's just our interests vary so greatly, she could not see why I love martial arts the way she loves visial arts. She told me many times that she would support me if I want to study art (which she did but because like me, she was a science student and was expected to take the 'science stream') but when I once vaguely suggested that I wish to be a licensed instructor myself, she laughed like I just made the funniest joke ever.

In the end, I cannot blame her for something she doesn't know. I'm sure if she knows how much I serious I take this and how much I love it, she would not act like she does but I don't want her to act for me either. I want to know my mom like who she really is. If she could not understand well, I have no will or right over someone else's acknowledgements or interests but I can't deny that it still hurts.

Handle by Tiaricale
Handle
A sketch of a bookshelf handle. I put up the paper beside the handle for comparison. As always, my accuracy and perspective are way off.

I'll scan a better quality of the sketch itself later when I have more time (I simply dislike connecting and disconnecting the wires xP)
