I hope it's a phase anyway.
If it isn't, I'm in trouble, MISTER! For reals, folks.
You see, I have a seriously bad case of the I WANT IT NOWS!!!!!
Only, because I'm not actually an insolent child, it's not so much STUFF that I want.
Although, I am unable to deny the fact that what I want generally leads to the gradual acquisition of STUFF.
But, the point remains...I don't have a case of the gimmes when it come to STUFF.
But I have one HELL of a case of the I WANT IT NOWS for skills.
I'm not even kidding, here boys and girls.
It seems that as of late I want to know how to do it all!
I am finding myself obsessively interested in a HUGE, not to mention extremely VAST, collection of various art forms and craft ideas.
I want to be able to sew - like for real. With a machine and stuff.
I want to be able to quilt.
I want to know how to knit and be actually good at it.
I want to crochet and, yes, be good at that, too.
I want to be able to sculpt amazing detailed faces and hands and feet and bodies that look like real people.
I want to be able to paint both lifelike figures and abstract fascinations.
I want to be able to take the very best of photos (although...I can say that I am actually pretty good with a camera).
I want to be able to use Photoshop to do cool stuff to photos.
I want to be able to use wire to form fabulous creatures of all kinds.
I have a horrible case of the I WANT IT NOWS!
Yes, I know I can learn any one of these things by studying it online on my own or paying large sums of money for classes, but I don't want to do that. I want it NOW!
As I said, I really hope this is a phase. Partly because it's a bit obnoxious, but also because the REAL problem here is that I actually have IDEAS for all of these things spinning around in my head! I have projects popping up one after the other that I REALLY want to try! Seriously, you guys...if this keeps up...I might actually, physically, not-even-joking POP! Just say'n. I've dabbled a bit with most of these things and I know, in time, I will actually be quite good at some of them, but MAN it's hard to just pick a small handful of things to do!
Does anyone else have this problem? How have you decided which hobbies to pursue and which to admire from the side of the longing observer? How many can one person reasonably even tackle without being crappy at a lot of things instead of really good at a few?
Oh, the stresses. For reals, people. For. Reals.
I'd love to know you thoughts on this one.
In the meantime....I'll just keep singing this all day.
