There was a stage when i was learning pottery that i found quite frustrating. a kind of in-between stage.
at the very beginning any progress was exciting, any p*t that looked vaguely p*t like was worthwhile. but after a few months the gap between what i wanted to make and what i could make became really obvious and that gap seemed to close frustratingly slowly.
reflecting on last year, especially the last six months, that gap got very small. i still have a tonnes to learn and will forever, but the things i’m making now are how i want them to be. they’re all very simple, one piece pots, but i’m happy with them.
#jonosmart is a #potter who managed to fight his #email inbox down to just 20 messages last night. no. one. email. him. (actually do, he gets lonely)
I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has ever left me some 5-star feedback on etsy. my feedback rating is what assures someone looking at my shop that i'm a reputable seller, which is doubly important for the people who don't follow me on any social media and stumble upon my work organically on the internet. without those of you who have left me feedback over the years, i wouldn't be able to do this kind of work! thank you all so much! and now with the "add a photo" feature, i get to sneak peeks of my pieces in their brand new habitats, which is a total treat for me.
if you have purchased something of mine recently, do you mind going to leave me some feedback? it only takes a second and it means the absolute world for my work.
also, just a quick reminder, please don't ever use instagram dms to contact me, i won't accept/answer. not only are dms completely unreliable (threads disappearing, people "unsending" previous messages), but also how am i supposed to know which order is yours?! if you contact me on etsy, it will show me what purchase you're referring to, or if you checked out as a guest you can use email and i can search for you via that information. but since you can change your username on instagram, and it may have nothing to do with your username on etsy or your email, i'm going to have to do some guesswork and that puts me in an uncomfortable position. imagine i make a mistake matching usernames and reveal personal information about you, such as your home shipping address, to a total stranger while trying to verify that i sent the piece to the right place, for instance?! that would be completely unacceptable. you'd be surprised how many people dm me with, exact quote, "where is my order." haha!
so, i've banned dms all together. it's just not professional for me to conduct business through a social media app. please email, or etsy message, and i'll get back to you asap :) even if it's just a quick question or wanting to share something with me, i'm happy to chat! thank you for understanding.

1. hentikan menunda-nunda alarm
sebagian dari kita kemungkinan melakukan hal ini, ketika alarm tengah berbunyi. perasaan malas dan lelah membuat kita menunda menghentikan alarm untuk berbunyi.
kebiasaan ini ternyata dapat memberikan efek buruk pada keseharian kita. hal ini karena ketika kita menunda alarm dan kembali tidur, siklus tubuh akan terganggu dan malah membuat tubuh menjadi semakin lelah.
2. mandi dengan air hangat
mandi dengan air hangat memang menyenangkan dan menenangkan. mandi dengan air hangat memang cocok dilakukan ketika pulang kerja.
namun, jangan coba lakukan hal ini ketika pagi hari. hal ini justru akan membuat kamu kian lemas dan kurang berenergi.
3. hindari minum kopi
hal ini bukan melarang meminum kopi di pagi hari, tapi dilarang ketika sesaat setelah kamu bangun tidur. jika anda meminum kopi terlalu pagi, maka hanya akan membuat hormon kortisol tak berfungsi maksimal.
4. berhenti cek email
cek email sesaat setelah bangun tidur juga tak dianjurkan. bukan hanya menyia-nyiakan waktu, namun juga menimbulkan rasa stress.
jangan sampai mood menjadi hancur akibat terlalu dini membaca email di pagi hari. waktu terbaik membaca email adalah saat kamu sudah siap untuk memulai aktivitas.
5. berhenti cek media sosial
memang telah terbukti terkadang media sosial dapat menimbulkan rasa kecemasan. jangan sampai anda terlambat bergegas akibat terlalu lama memantau media sosial.
