Made some Pinc Mochi for the first time! (real and edible)
It was reallyy sticky and hard to handle
Long time no blog! A lot of updating to do, so don't mind the bits and pieces of things I chuck at you!
For the first time in a long time, I actually have the summer off. The last time I had a free summer was after 1st year university, which was the inception of Pinc Stuff. All the other summers were filled with summer school, part-time jobs, and volunteering. Last week on the 7th was Pinc Stuff's 5 year anniversary. I didn't host a giveaway like I normally would have because I was very unsure Pinc Stuff's future and next steps. It's hard to believe that I've been running Pinc Stuff for 5 years now.
The past year has been a year of tremendous change and growth for me as an individual. I was no longer a student, and as cliche as it sounds, I was trying to find my place in the world. I was trying to find out who I really was as a person, and where I was headed. I kept Pinc Stuff running the best I could, except when I had to work in Korea over the summer, and when I landed this teaching gig 3 months ago.
With my newly discovered faith in God and Jesus, I feel like I have a better sense of where I am headed, and want to say thank you to each and every one of you who have stuck by me (like the mochi I made!) every step of the way. After getting my hands busy making PInc Stuff again this afternoon, I realized how much I missed making Pinc Stuff (really), and decided that I want to reopen for the shop this summer.
Thank you again for your encouraging words and kind messages, I appreciate all of them!
