A Beautiful Mess. I want to be doing the same things professionally that Elsie is doing (full-time blogger, online shop owner of vintage+handmade goods, travel, have a creative profession, make my own clothing line, etc). I even took an e-course of hers (which I highly recommend to anyone who wants to blog professionally) and I filter a lot of what I do through the information that she gives in the course. I don't necessarily aspire to have all the guest contributors that she has, but I love the content that she provides for her readers!
My Granny (because I would do almost anything to be able to hug her one more time), Elsie (mentioned above, so I can pick her brain and so she can hopefully tell me that everything is going to work out and that I'll eventually become a millionaire off of my creative businesses : )! ) and a Native American ancestor of mine so I can learn some good gardening/herb tricks and how to flint an arrowhead!
When I was seven I wanted to be an artist : ) And now I essentially want to be the same thing, but in a looser sense of the word. I feel like my long-term career will have to be creatively challenging for me to be fulfilled by it and I ultimately want to be my own boss. Can anyone tell that I breathe, sleep and eat my small business idea? I think I've talked about it for the past three questions!
My thumbs are double jointed and I am really good at naming peoples' super powers.
OOH, ouch. This one hurts to really think about and admit. But its simultaneously rejection and success. I never want to let anyone down and once you reach success (whatever that even means) people expect so much from you.
Thanks Melanie, I loved learning even more about you! I hope you guys reading enjoyed meeting Melanie as well, be sure to pop over to My Billie and see what she is up to, there's DIY, fashion and inspiration aplenty :)
