(This is a personal development post, not a crafting post, so feel free to skip this one if you want to).
Who am I? This is a question I’ve started asking myself more and more these past few months. I think it’s harder to see who you are than it is to see who others are. At least, for me it is.
On one level, this is easy to answer. Mathematician. Crafter. Introvert. Agender. Cyclist.
But what does this mean? How do I add these things together to get me? I was almost all of these 3 years ago, but I’m not who I was then. I still wear the same clothes (and my hand-knit cardigan). I still look the same, I have the same skills, but I’m different. How I’m different, I don’t know. Except the agender. That’s new.
I have a very unusual name, and when I was younger I used to joke that I was the only one of a species. And now I don’t feel like how I used to. So I’m no longer that species. But I’ve evolved from who I was, and I don’t want to forget I was. So I decided to start using a shorted version of my name, one that’s decidedly gender-neutral. All that’s left is figuring how to tell everyone (else. I love you guys, you always seem so open and easy to talk to, even if I’ve abandoned the blog for extended times!). Ahh well, that’s tomorrow’s problem I think. I need to get to bed, and get over this bug I caught! And then do more crafting 🙂
