Crafts Anyone? January Round-up

Top Left: Snowflakes out of Lego that was my Lego Challenge for January. I had to do them in black cause I didn't have any white in the sizes needed. I only made the three but since they are the basic shapes and I made them from pictures I think I did good

Bottom Left: The chair is part of my dinette set and a part of another challenge I have given myself. I fell in love with this Yarn Bomb chair years ago and I have been trying to re-create it because I love it. This is my second try the first one was a mess. and I've been looking over some of the newer ones and I saw this one so I figured I'd give it a try

Top Centre: My first Lego house & furnishing. It is not fancy but it is a beginning.

Bottom Centre: My word of the year poster for February, its in my bullet journal now.

Upper Right: This is a Lego Habitat, in this case, I am creating a home for a peg-leg pirate and his monkey. Eventually, I want that white wall in the back to be replaced by a skull and cross-bones but I have a lot to learn before I can do that. They are a great way to display mini-figs.

Bottom Right: The four new-to-me recipes I tried this month: Broiled Grapefruit, Chunky Monkey Overnight Oats, Brussels sprouts slaw  and Oven Roasted Brussels sprouts & sweet potato

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
