It’s been very anxious lately as my visa expiration is getting closer and closer. I don’t understand why, but unlike the last visa application, it seems like it is way more stressful than it was before — the first time I did this.
I am not sure why though… I thought for awhile is it because of the changing of the political situation in the UK? Is it because of the several unpleasant experiences I had? Or because of scary news where people were sent back against their will? To be honest, I might be fine going back to Indonesia… my family is there. I just feel guilty that I have to drag my husband — who doesn’t speak a word in Indonesian, to Indonesia.
So in between doing the documents and feeling like crap because of it, I sit down, stitching or crocheting or knitting, and suddenly the world gets much much better.
It is incredibly therapeutic.
It reminds me why I do this. It is a wonderful distraction for when things are so tense and stressful. I can direct my energy to creative process than to worrying about stuff that I can’t do anything about.
Oh by the way… do any of you have ever sent anything to Europe? I have a pair of cute slippers to be sent now…
*) the other pair are for my beloved niece 😀
Talking about creative process… This pattern is incredibly easy, and it actually taunted me to modify it. I mean… I’ve been thinking of different kind of slippers. So I make this:
Guess what animal would it be?
