soc_puppet: Dreamsheep with a ball of white yarn for a body (Crochet)
I got my meds adjusted just over a week ago, and I already feel loads better. Among the first things I'm noticing are: my enthusiasm at work is less forced, I'm less inclined to nap for the sake of napping during my free time, and I'm crocheting again!

To be fair, I'd been doing a bit of crochet work, but over the past few months it's really fallen down the wayside. Possibly longer. I was almost exclusively crocheting at my friend Steve's crafting get-togethers, and since those dropped off about a month ago, I'd been really struggling to do any crochet - or anything crafty at all! I managed to get this done for Valentine's Day:

Valentine's Day themed crocheted owl

Or, well, Owlentine's Day, as I put it on the Tumbles ;) Where there are also more pictures, BTW.*

(Sadly, I didn't manage to finish up its Feline-tines Day companion (for many Owl x Pussycat = OTP jokes), and it's currently still languishing.)

Anyway, since starting the increased dosage, I've finished two standard cats in as many days, and anticipate making more soon - probably not tomorrow, or Tuesday, since I've got lots of work both days (plus taxes on Tuesday), but definitely in the near future! I'm feeling a lot more optimistic about actually finishing projects, and just enjoying thinking about crocheting in general, and my stacks upon stacks of DVDs are beginning to see a bit of use as I stitch my way through them.

...I actually contemplated starting up a Patreon for [personal profile] hooked_on_anime a while back, but with my creative slump I just didn't feel up to it - not to mention the fact that I haven't really made any purely fannish patterns since Aviva and Shulamit, and they were the first in a long while themselves. (Ugh. Maybe my depressive spell was longer than I realized =_= I really need to look into some sort of mood-tracking app or something.) If I do decide to go for it, there's more setting up to do, but it's definitely something for me to think about.

Anyway, yes! Chemistry is better. (I am willfully not adding any caveats to that for better mental health.)
