Hi all!

My name is Lydia, but you knew that already. I graduated summa cum laude from Eastern Oregon University in the fall of 2023 with a Bachelor of Science in accounting and a concentration in managerial accounting. This blog has nothing to do with that; you will not find accounting information here.

Even before I went back to school, I had a powerful need to learn. I grew up homeschooled and that has affected me my entire life. I am an endless well of curiosity; I want to learn how to do things, and I doubt that will ever stop.

Thus, this is a hobby blog. Over the years, it has gone through many foci, from personal life updates to recipes, musical covers, and book reviews. This blog may touch on any of my many hobbies and interests including, but not limited to:

  • Cooking & baking
  • Music--including various types of ukuleles, ocarinas, tin whistles, & recorders
  • Classic, fantasy, and other books
  • Creative writing & National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)
  • Drawing & painting
  • Sewing, knitting, crochet, & other crafts
  • Pilates, yoga, & nutritariansim
  • Productivity, habits, & time management
  • Minimalism, decluttering, & organization
I plan to continue documenting my learning adventures on this blog and share any useful information I find. I hope that you will join me.
