WOWO! A playce to share success stories!

------------and some self dissatisfaction

I really need this right now as I'm feeling like I never get anything done.

^Unexpectedly co-lead a movement workshop

^Danced on stage

^Went to school, took an art class that changed my life and helped me realize that traditional school really isn't for me

^Lead another movement workshop (it really wasn't much, most of the workshop was people just dancing around on their own.)

^Lead a small group session on brainstorming positive things that are going on in the world. (not quite what I wanted to do but still cool)

^Dragged myself out of a deep dark hole of depression. (with a ton of help..and I'm still working on it, the cause of the depression now is TOTALLY different though.

^Got an idea from idea to market in the form of 14 cool lights.

^Got to put said lights in a display window of a famous store on a very high pedestrian traffic street.

^Kept some plants alive long then I ever have kept other plants

^Deigned about 5 other lights and make progress on figuring out how to design some more in Sketchup

...ok, now this is actually starting to depress me because none of these have actually earned me any $$ and that is really what I need right now.

Hi, Jaylor,


It all sounds intriguing, especially the lights. Please feel free to share what you want. We'll help if we can, and we'll cheer you on.

p.s. most (not all) of our success stories are works in progress.

Welcome, Jaylor. Depression can be debilitating. Glad you got out of it.

Hi Jaylor,

Good for you! That's a lot more forward steps than I've made. I'd gladly read more details if you felt like writing more.

And at least you have some variety in depression causes.

Best wishes to work out details so that people throw money as well as "just" applauding.
