Hi! Proof that I am indeed, alive and well!
I've been in a big ol' slump and it's been pissing me off horribly. I hate slumps. I hate feeling like I'll never get out of slumps even though the logical half of my brain is like "Yo, you're fine, go have some chocolate and some coffee and spend time with your friends and you'll feel better!" But then the other half of me is like "NOO. LAY IN BED IN YOUR PJ'S ALL DAY AND PLAY TETRIS BATTLE AND BE A SORE LOSER AND CLOSE THE APPLICATION EVERY TIME YOU LOSE."
Ahem. Yeah. That's been me for the past week or so.
I had a fabulous weekend though. I went to an amazing concert with one of my very best friends (That I posted about), and then the next day I spent time with my family, then saw some family friends for dinner (they just had a baby - he's so adorable!), and one of my other best friend's SISTER had a baby and I am so happy for their family, so that was exciting to!
Then I went to a party with lots of good friends and saw lots of old friends and made lots of new ones, and I danced! I just danced and had so much fun, I've mentioned before that I'm not much of a partier normally, but man do I ever love dancing. The next day, I went to my parents' for an early-birthday celebration! We had my dinner of choice - home made pizza (always my dinner of choice), sangria, cake, and presents, and just good times. Which brings me to the next point in this random post - my birthday! It's tomorrow! So I think it's time to go over my 18 before 19 list... even though I did embarrassingly badly. Red is for womp womp womp, failures.
o1. Write and illustrate picture book - lol no. work in progress though!
o2. Take up a form of excercise (yoga? swimming? rock climbing?) - I have a dvd for yoga....
o4. Have an overall-wearing day with my best friend (long story)
o5. Mandatory trip to Montreal
o6. Train for a 5K charity run
o7. Get my sunshine tattoo - did this within a week or two of being 18 hehe!
o8. Film & edit my own short film - work in progress!
o9. Get my G2 license
1o. Learn how to skateboard
11. Complete "Window Monsters" illustrated series - came up with a new idea
(Of course I can never be 100% serious....)
18. Keep a Drawing Diary. - I have about a week's worth of entries.. ha....
I guess I didn't do tooooo badly! I'm super excited to make a new list tomorrow on my birthday - as is tradition, and I might carry some of these ones that I didn't succeed with onto this next list. Any ideas for what to put on my 19 before 20 list? Do you do birthday lists?
