Must. Do. Something

Help me out bloggers. I want more from my life that this. I get up at 6:30 - go to work around 7, get there around 8, start around 9, leave around 6, im home around 7, I sometimes eat, sometimes cook, sometimes do dishes, recently i water my plants, sit and knit, or read a magazine, rarely watch TV, play with the rats for an hour, and then go to bed. I spend my day avoiding getting pissed off, I avoid people, the TV, and sometimes i avoid eating, because i dont want to sit in a room with self opinionated people who cant just let something go. But what choice do i have? We can move into a cabin next door, but we will still get no privacy. Its not a good thing. I dont want to be forced to spend time with people. That way, when i do see people, i dont get sick of them in 2 seconds flat. So im thinking that i should work from home? But doing what? How can i make money from staying home all day? Should i sell my car? Do i need it? What to do, what to do..... I dont want to work in administration my entire life. I want to make things, I can make silver jewellery when i put my mind to it, or i can knit things, i do have an imagination for things if i try, but i dont think i will make money from it, and thats the key to life for the time being. I dont feel happy and i havent for a long time. Should i go home?

My brother always tells me that it's impossible to make a living making things yourself... I don't know if that's entirely true, but it is definitely a challenge. I think to make a living you have to sell your ideas, not your products, because there just aren't enough hours to make enough stuff. What kind of silver jewelry do you make? Ever thought of making a piece and then having it cast? That way you have lots you can sell and don't have to make each one... Just a thought.

I'm sorry to hear you've been unhappy=( I do think you can make a living making things yourself though, you just have to be able to find the right place to sell and obviously the time and money to make things. Have you ever been to Etsy.com? I'm sure you could sell lots of your jewellry there I've been thinking about selling some of my knitting/crocheting on there as it does seem to sell. It could be a start =)
I hope you're feeling a bit better today =)
