Me and My Projects

I like to project. Project, an untraditional use of the verb. I don't mean I like to speak loudly (in fact I'm quite quiet) or cause an image to appear. I mean I like to take on projects!

Some are challenges, others are merely activities to keep me busy. While projects may be meaningful or useful, many have no greater purpose. The term "project" is vague, which is exactly why I like using it to describe my interests. I may blog about my current projects (baking, reading, DIY crafting, travel and relationships), I may reflect on past projects (academics and wedding planning) but most importantly, I want to be open to exploring any number of interests, opportunities or experiences that may come my way.

When I'm inspired by something, I often want to read it/make it/do it - experience it for myself! Many of my project ideas come from others, and I'll do my best to give credit where credit is due. I'm not a super creative person (unfortunately) but I take direction well. For that reason, I'm usually inspired more than I'm inspiring. I enjoy browsing all sorts of blogs, and I'm addicted to Pinterest.

As I blog about my projects I hope to share the sources of my inspiration, my own experiences and maybe even inspire someone else to take on a project of their own. And as I set this goal, I realize blogging has become my latest project...
