I don't know about you, but I'm kind of happy 2014 is over and done with. It had it's good moments but... I am looking forward to 2015 much more. As it has been ever since I remember Jan 1st is usually followed by Jan 3rd, meaning my birthday - this one is special as I no longer qualify as a teenager. When did I turn twenty, guys? I'm just sitting here and contemplating - time really does pass fast.
I've been on DA for about 7 years now and I would like to thank each and one of you for how far we've come! I never would have imagined I would have almost 1000 watchers, makes a girl feels accomplished. I've met some irreplacable people in here, and even if I don't talk much anymore I want you to know that I still hold you very close to my heart! University and life has been keeping me busy, and so in turn my activity has been dropping - I hope to remedy that starting this year!
For my resolutions, the most important one is getting healthier - I've been to some medical tests and I am practically a trash bag shaped like a human being. Living on the verge on dehydration, getting fatter.... well, it's about time I did something about it. 2015 is a year for drinking proper amounts of water, eating vegetables, losing weight and going swimming. If it goes well, perhaps I won't feel so self-concious about my body anymore.
I want to draw more. For myself. The assigments for school really cut back my time and motivation for doing anything personal, most of what I've started I can't bring myself to finish - commissions, paintings... This year I want to try drawing everyday for myself, even if it's just a simple sketch. I don't feel like I've improved all that much but I'm sure I can squeeze out some potential if I just move my procrastinating ass and do something about it.
Last but not least, I want to sort out my thoughts and feelings - I come from a family where everybody keeps eachother at distance, everyone needs their space. We very much love eachother, this is simply our dynamic that I've inherited. I don't talk about my feelings very often and lately I've been feeling as if too much has been bottling up, I feel overwhelmed - 2014 has been rather trying for my personal life and well, since I don't talk about it... I will just try to draw it out. I'm planning to do a series of comics for my confused musings, in hope it will help me understand myself and let the weight drop, slightly at least. A catharsis, if you will.
Well, this is getting a big long now, so I shall just cut it here.
Here's to 2015 and I wish you guys a wonderful year!
