“I started making kandi when I was depressed as a way to distract myself from eating and now I’m no longer depressed and happy to trade.”

“I hate when my arms get sweaty from wearing kandi…”
“I just recently met a girl at an event and she was dancing next to me and she had no kandi I started to put a peace sign up to give her one and she said she had nothing to trade. I told her it was no problem and her face was priceless. Its just amazing.”

“I feel too old for kandi, and usually don’t put it on before I get to the rave. but I love it, and want it to be more popular so I can wear it more.”

“I don’t like when really crazy and “weird” people wear kandi in public, it makes me embarrassed to wear pieces and be associated with them.”
"I don’t agree with this whole ‘you can’t sell kandi’ thing. I’m not rich, I can barely afford the beads to keep my hobby going. It’s a really expensive craft. So who are you to tell me I can’t sell MY art that I made. Strangers will send me hate mail. Say I’m being ‘unplurr’ but what are they doing? Sending hate mail to a stranger is being PLUR? What? I find it wrong that people think it’s ok to govern someone else’s life. Nothing ‘plur’ about it."
NOTE FROM THE BLOG - this is a confession. If I get any hate over it (because I have before), I will gladly have a nice chat with you about how confession blogs are ran.
I’m not sure if this is a question or a confession because of the use of question marks and it’s not specified.
Sometimes, people cut up kandi after the person they received it from is no longer in their life, or something messy happened (break up, huge fight, backstabbing, etc). They do it out of spite, anger, numbness.
I personally think it’s wrong, and if you cut up kandi it should be in a respectful manner and use the beads to create something new that signifies a turning point in your life.
If anyone wants to add to this, feel free.
Full confession: "I recently started making some kandi for a plur package that I’ll be sending to someone across the US, but I’m scared of sending it because i haven’t really made anything "spectacular" like an epic and I think they’ll be disappointed."
