Today I am twenty-nine. And I've decided to use my blog to document this year of my life, the last one in my twenties. I don't know that I'll post every day, but if I hit the 4-5 times a week I'm aiming for, I'll be happy. I want the record to look back on, especially of my art, but also of what's going on in my life at the time.
I'm hoping I can pull it off. In the past, I've posted in fits and starts. I get going at a good pace for a month or two, and then something will happen to make me feel massively discouraged, and I'll stop again. But I'm not giving up. I will keep trying until I make this a habit.
Tomorrow I'll bring out the art (and there's a lot of art going on lately, and lots of cool big art news), and later in the week I'll bring out the active life stuff (I've started running! I run 3-5 days a week, and I got a bike I've been riding too. I'll be running a race in July. I don't entirely believe it myself), and there are other cool things coming up, like a new header and making good on long overdue giveaways.
Today, though, I'm enjoying my birthday. It's been a quiet one, which is really what I was going for. Charlie made me tea in the morning and gave me books and dvds, and since he's gone off to work I've had a peaceful time of reading and snuggling with the animals. Tonight we'll go to Dumpling Master for dinner, and then come home and eat dessert, watch dvds, and drink wine. It is absolutely perfect.
