|I should have done accounting work instead of making these accessories.|
The other day, I went to Asakusabashi to buy some materials and parts for accessories because I’ve been hooked on making bracelets, earrings and necklaces. The more I make them, the more I seem to be addicted to doing it. And eventually, I came all the way to Asakusabashi, which is a Mecca for the accessory DIY maniac.
There are some wholesale districts in Tokyo. For instance, Kappabashi for kitchen wear, Nippori for fabric, Okachimachi for jewelry and Asakusabashi for dolls and accessory parts. You can find a wide range of things with comparably lower prices there. And I’ve came to Asakusabashi, though I’m just a beginner who started making accessories three weeks ago.
However, to be honest, I shouldn’t indulge in such things at the moment. I have to file my tax return as soon as possible. Although I haven’t finished preparing the documents for the tax return, I still don’t feel up to doing it. I’m afraid that I’m saying the same things at this time of the year, but accounting is definitely not for me. It’s a real pain in the neck.
I usually manage to sit at my desk and do accounting reluctantly, but soon I find myself starting to make bracelets. Is this a typical symptom of addiction? No. I think I’m just escaping from reality unconsciously. Accounting is a harsh reality for me enough to make me do such alternative work.
Making accessories is more like meditation. I pick up a teeny-weeny bead one by one. It requires me to be patient, but in return, it gives me peace of mind when I concentrate on simple work. Anyway, it’s almost time to face reality and go back to accounting work before it becomes too late.
