"Konstantia, where have you been? Why have you not been blogging so often?" I'll tell you. Burnout sucks. For many of us, the SCA is everything we do. It was certainly that way for me for a while. My social life was entirely the SCA. I moderated groups on That Social Media Site for the … Continue reading Omphaloskepsis: Burnout sucks.
Update on Unfinished Projects
Good news: I've got two completely off the list! YAY! Bad news: I've added to my list. My list items that are now done are these. Nobelese Largesse Secret Project (blogged about here) Mar’s Quilt block (no photos, but it's also done and I'm mostly happy with it) I took a break to knock out some … Continue reading Update on Unfinished Projects
Y’all. Y’all. I’m really bad at unfinished projects. My friend Anna Plantyn had a fantastic idea for keeping on task for finishing up the projects (and I’ll blog about this, too). From her note: Over the years I have accrued a number of unfinished projects. One of my goals for 2018 is to clear out all … Continue reading Unfinished Projects
2017 SCA Resolutions, revisited. . .
Looking back at my SCA resolutions from last year, and I got none of them done. Sigh. Not. A. One. Now, to be fair, my modern work life was in a crap-ton of flux, but I'm hoping for much smoother sailing this year. Goals #1 (actually finish a project before taking on another one) and #5 … Continue reading 2017 SCA Resolutions, revisited. . .
I Need Your Help
Hi all - I wish this was an awesome research post or a post about something I made. Instead, I'm asking for a tiny bit of help with a bit of a modern-day problem. I'm visiting my Diarmaid, and my computer hard drive ended up needing to be replaced. I was able to have it … Continue reading I Need Your Help
Brigida’s Pelican Text
My friend Brigida had the boon begged to be admitted to the Order of the Pelican back in August. She asked me to write her scroll text, of which I was pleased to do so. Brigida's persona is from 1200s Munich (hence the von München in her name!) Tumbling down the rabbit hole that are Holy … Continue reading Brigida’s Pelican Text
Ask Me Anything!
It's been a while. So much for keeping up with my New Year's plans. At any point, gratuitous project pic! Tagua nut is also known as vegetable ivory, and is carved using a lot of the same methods, and has the benefit of being vegan and sustainable. This piece isn't necessarily a period piece, but … Continue reading Ask Me Anything!
It’s been a year: goal-writing and the SCA
On the other other hand, goal-writing allows us to see our own growth and learn from what we've done in the past - it's not a checklist. It's a way to see how far you've come as a person (or your kit, etc.) and yet still show how far you have to go, and then using that as a form of finding contentment. It's kind of Zen, really.
A bit of an introductory post. . . but a sort of recap.
It's been a while since I've done this, and with the numbers of new followers I have, I figured it was as good of a time as any. Hi there! I'm Konstantia Kaloethina, for those of you in the SCA. I'm currently serving as Calontir's Gold Falcon Principal Herald, and I live in the Barony … Continue reading A bit of an introductory post. . . but a sort of recap.
