Possible themes? 02/08/2009

I lay around all night, thinking about what kind of perspective my blog can offer the world.  Through hours of research in the past couple of days, I am slowly beginning to come up with an identity for myself.  At first, I thought about writing career related stuff, especially for college students and fresh college grads.  Then, I also wanted to incorporate a feminist point of view (and for me, that just means exploring how I view things being a female).  After that I started thinking about my interest in marketing and entrepreneurism and perhaps providing tips in those areas, as I learn them.  From there, I explored how my perspective is different as an Asian American and that is what I'm currently reading about.  So, in an effort to merge all these interests, I could create a "female Asian American's thoughts and experiences in the professional world" type blog.

Of course, I also have a myriad of interests outside of those areas, so I really am struggling to try to keep a certain focus.  I adore traveling and immersing myself into other worlds, but I haven't done that in a year, though I am about to leave for Singapore.  I love cats (and pretty much all animals), but my last one just died on Christmas.  I have an obsession for the military, especially the Marine Corps, but I don't really get to interact with them anymore.  I am also fascinated with relationships and reading about all aspects of that kind of advice.  I find arts and crafts to be really cool, though I haven't really had time to create anything lately (the last thing was my cross stitch).  I am a huge fan of food and I even take pictures of any and every meal that is vaguely interesting or tasty-looking.  Speaking of, I also take LOADS of pictures to document my life and those around me.

I think in the end I am just hoping that because everything I write about will be from my thoughts, there will be a theme or two that emerge from the way I write and what I choose to write about.  Am I just trying too hard to find it right now?

I have finally managed to finish a cross stitch that I began working on back in high school.  So, 5 or 6 years later, it's finally completed.

Here's to good fortune in the New Year.  :)

Now I just need to find a frame for it so I can preserve it forever.  I opened up the next one to start on, but after looking through it... got a little overwhelmed.  It's going to take another couple of years before I finish that one, most likely.  Since I'm feeling good about getting this one done, I don't want to begin another to leave for a few years.  That would downplay the accomplishment of this one, so I think I'll move on to some other thing before I return to cross-stitching again.  Uh oh, I just noticed a mistake I made that I'm going to need to fix... dang it.

[edit]  Ok, all fixed!
