The Child is the Parent of the MeFite

As another week draws to a close, the spirit of Fizz--who is taking a break from the site--endures! Let's spend time talking about how past times and daydreams we enjoyed in childhood carry through to our lives today. Did you first learn to knit in elementary school and are now a fixture on Ravelry? Did you create elaborate model train layouts only to become a transportation planner as an adult? Was it always your sense that the landscape where you belonged was somewhere else... where you live now? Have you traded a Jiffy-Bake oven or Brownie camera for their professional equivalents? Or were you primed for a particular career or hobby, whether by family fiat or your own sense of self, that couldn't be farther from your own truth today? Spill! [more inside]

MetaBack2School

End of another long week filled with all kinds of awful politics/news. So let's talk about something else. It's that time of year where so many students are heading back to school. Maybe you're going back to school to finish off a degree/diploma/certification. Maybe you're shopping for first day of school clothes for your MetaChild. Maybe you're taking some art classes at the local college/community center. Maybe you have some fond memories of this time of year and that new school supplies/bag excitement. School is in session, let's talk. :)
