13 Things for 2013 - April / May Update

* Photography course.
Been stalking the Arts Council for digital photography courses. I sadly cannot commit to 8-10 weekly sessions. Found a good and well-written book in the library. Might purchase an updated version to learn...

* Sewing course.
Signed up for a May sewing bootcamp. That fell through the cracks due to low numbers. (*disappointed*) Being deferred to the June session. Fingers crossed!

* Exercise.
Weather permitting, I take The Hubs out for a walk with me in the park nearby. I try to attend a yoga session once a week. Nothing strenuous.

* Bake a bread a month.

* Conquer the NYC Subway.
Embarked the Subway twice, so far. All accompanied trips, sprinkled with a bit of confusion :)

* Re-learn to drive.
Let's just say I can survive and entertain myself when The Hubs is away. Won't see me straying from the paths I know or co-piloting any long-distance trips out of town, though :(

* Revamp my Etsy store.
Finished my beads (yay!), and photographed my jewelry with a new prop. Have you seen them?

* Meet other Etsy crafters.
Found a good one and made a friend in this little town.

* Go to the cinema.
Yes! Twice now, for action films. And I quite like buying tickets through the phone app.

* Go for a musical / play.
Not yet. Nothing has screamed at me.

* Finish my fabric stash.
Bought a ton of dressmaking patterns, on sale. I hope to make a variety of dresses with my stash.

* Downsize wardrobe to 100 pieces of clothing.
Been quite resilient to the malls. Will only buy something that will see me through a long time, and with news of garment factory disasters and tragic working conditions, I think twice.

* Live with less.
Funny how just knowing that our US stay is temporary, I stop myself from gathering. But I've got to watch my weakness for dressmaking patterns, fabric, and secondhand books. And tea.

    Bummer about the postponed course. Hopefully it will run next month.
