The Many Faces of Kellie

I love when people (or questionnaires) ask me about my hobbies and interests. Have you ever sat and thought about the things in life that you really enjoy? Have you ever considered how wide the hobby and interest spectrum spreads?

Some days I am a fashionista. I love playing fashion design games (Covet for both iOS and Android), reading fashion blogs and magazines, and styling outfits.

Some days I am a hardcore gamer. I use the term “hardcore” loosely because I certainly do not put the hours into my game time like I use to. Maybe an hour or so here and there depending on my current mood. However, my interest for games is just as extensive as my general hobby list. MMOs and MOBAs are becoming my favorite, though.

Some days I am a chef. Whether it’s baking, cooking a simple dinner, or creating something new and inventive, it’s another form of art that I have come to love!

Some days I am an organizer. This isn’t often, but when I fall into that role, I’m pretty good at it!

Some days I’m a crafter. Who would have thought that I would come to love crocheting as much as I do?

Some days I am a photographer. Nature pictures or abstract shots. Those are my favorite things to photograph and those are what I enjoy sharing with others when I capture fun shots.

Regardless of which face or hat I’m wearing, the most important thing is that I am always me. Staying true to who you are and being happy with yourself are two very important things that we need to do. Look at yourself in the mirror, smile at yourself, hug yourself, and tell yourself that you are beautiful. You are amazing. You can do anything and you can be anything.

Remember that no matter which role you are filling today, you are a queen and a beautiful human being.

It’s Time to Spring Forward!

This is my own gentle reminder that tonight I need to turn the clocks forward one hour. Don’t forget!

In other news, it’s been far too long since I’ve written a blog post. Shame on me! I have a good reason, though.

Things have been pretty hectic for me on an emotional level, but I am doing a lot to get myself in a good place. It’s important to remember that these things are not immediate. It is a journey and one that will have plenty of ups and downs.

I have had a lot of downs with the onslaught of cold weather. I am ready for winter to be over with!

To try and conquer the winter blues, I have been trying to do some crafts and healthy living. I recently joined Nerd Fitness, which has been such a blessing. Imagine a place where the nerds and geeks of the world gather to support others in their quests for better living, health, and exercise. It’s fantastic! I’m currently working on my first 6 Week Challenge and it’s going very well thus far.

I’ve finally gotten back into crocheting, which has been fabulous! I’m working on a “skinny scarf” in a collection of absolutely gorgeous colors. Photos will be forthcoming!

So, in lieu of this dreary weather, try and keep your head up. Embrace your roadblocks, allow yourself the time to get your emotions out, and let it strengthen you.
