Habitual Habitat of the Amy

I kept reading advice columns for how to bring sales to your etsy shop, and one thing they all said is to get a blog.

I can't say this blog has boosted my etsy sales, but it has given me yet another outlet for talking about myself, and that can't be bad--can it?

In All the World

World Map Beaded Tapestry
I've always wanted to travel the world, but I'm way too scared to do so on my own.

And it's funny, because I can get up and sing a song without accompaniment in front of 200+ kids and their parents/chaperons by myself and not worry about a thing, but the idea of traveling alone has me shivering in fear.

I've done it--I've traveled from Wisconsin to New Hampshire to work, then moved to Oregon, then moved back to Wisconsin and from there returned to New Hampshire and Massachusetts for more work, and maybe it wasn't the same as traveling, working or living in a foreign country, but it rather felt like it at times. Well, except for the bit where everyone already spoke my language and used the same money and laws as me, for the most part. But it was still traveling far from home.

And I learned, when I got there, that I was more inclined to locate a place of safety/home and stay there than I was to go out and explore these new parts of the country.  With the exceptions being when my friends were involved, because as soon as there was anyone going somewhere else, I was more than happy to jump along. And then, you know, cling.

It seems that at heart I'm just a homebody with delusions of travel. *sigh*

  1. That is really nifty Amy and so detailed too!!! It sound like you done a whole lot of taveling. I went out west one year with my family and believe it or not I was scared of being 2000 miles away from home. All the time we were away I was worried about our car braking down.LOL
