What’s Your Thing?

I love podcasts, and I tuned in to Crafty Ass Female’s episode, “What’s My Thing” Revisited – their retake on one of their earlier episodes. I’ve been struggling for a while with Imposter Syndrome (see previous post: You Have to be an Imposter to have the Syndrome, Right?) and this really opened my eyes a lot.

My thing is varied, and they all come together to make one whole.

I am a high school teacher – and I adore my job. It’s hard and difficult and there’s days I don’t want to do it, but overall, I can’t imagine doing anything else.

I am a knitter, and that has grown into a knitwear designer. I am so blessed that I have had such a positive reaction so far, and I hope this journey continues to grow.

I am a youth worker. I work with youth at my church, at my school, and I want to bless and grow youth through Wattle&Wool as well.

I really truly think it is all three of these things that collect and combine into my “thing”, and I couldn’t be prouder.

I sometimes worry that I’m too one-sided, or boring, but I then remember the other facets to who I am and I feel encouraged again – I’m sarcastic, I’m caring, I’m quick to judge but open to learn, I’m young and a knitter and I have room for influence.

What’s your thing?

Hi! I'm a 25 year old living in Western Australia. I'm passionate about craft, sustainability, and making my world a better place. When I'm not teaching high school social sciences, you can find me knitting and reading (usually at the same time), cooking, or finding some form of craft to get better at!
