The power of suggestion that is the Facebook memory feed
For example, I usually get a craving to order a pizza every week around pi day - 3/14. Then, I end up ordering a pizza because it's pie day. I only order a pizza a few times a year, and that happens to be when I want one and comment about it. My life is boring guys, that's why I'm commenting about pizza on Facebook. That is still not a good example.
Maybe it's because I say the same things far too regularly. That could be it too.
Over the past few weeks, I've been seeing posts of my ugly blanket crochet project. It started once I had some time free up during my last job transition six years ago. It was a symbolic project that I gave away here on the blog.
The timing was completely ironic and thankfully is not an annual occurrence. I'd be a mental case if it were. Anyway, these crocheting pictures in my feed gave me an itch to pick up a hook and work on a project again. In fact, I started two different projects over the weekend that I actually have no intention of finishing anytime soon. I started them because actually I was worked up over something completely unrelated to work (or lack thereof) the other night when I started it and was in desperate need of unwinding. I didn't want to get out the stress relief coloring books.
I did pick it up a time or two since, but I really need to move on out to the craft room to start back on some other things. I've had a hard time motivating myself to do that, but maybe once I get all the books out of the middle of my floor I will be more eager to move to the next project. (That's what I'm calling that area at my mom's suggestion - it's the big pass-through area of my house, but doesn't have a specific purpose. It's the middle of the house. I've had table there in the past, but it's not a dining room.) I've just been emotionally and mentally tired the past couple of weeks. Things are turning around though. I'm going to start a new routine.
How long does anyone think that is going to stick? ;)
