Livejournal I miss you|
I feel that its been a while. I played with Myspace, but that's subsided. Now it's all about facebook - and is all that sharing really necessary? I like it because I can see what everyone's doing. But then they can see everything about me. A neat thing happened the other day, my friend Michelle from the fourth grade (yes the fourth) and my old pen pal when she moved to Arizona, contacted me. I was shocked. But its neat to catch up. I miss the random polls and quizzes - things that I can read years later and see whats changed, whats stayed the same. I like, for instance, to go back and read what I've posted here over the years. I like that it stays there. This is like my digital diary, and a good place to check in every once in a while.
New Job: I am Chief Coordinator for a promo items company. I do some graphic design.
Art: I've currently got an animation in a show at my friend's theater company. Its my first Flash animation in years. The play is called "all in the timing" (irony, no?) and the credits list my name alongside Dali and Matisse. It made me feel good to see that, yet also humble because I'm no where near their level in talent. I want to do more though, and it's kinda inspiring. I'm getting to do small things, art wise. I need to do soo much more I think.
Boyfriend: Nick and I just celebrated our second anniversary. He made me dinner and gave me a necklace with my birthstone in it. I was amazed, I love it. I've never had something so nice.
Family: Mom and Dad are doing ok as far as I can tell. I don't hear from them very often, except for mom calling me at work on my cell phone when she needs things. Pete seems to be doing ok, he's thinkn of finally moving out of the house, though I won't believe it until he's out.
Things I hope to accomplish:
1. create more art, finish some projects i have in mind or started but haven't followed through.
2. de-clutter my stuff
3. Continue playing my guitar. Maybe sign up for another class where I can play my guitar and sing, I loved being in the Beatles ensemble the last few semesters, and was sad to have to stop for the winter but it's just too cold for me. And now I don't know what class I'd like.
4. Focus is my main goal.
5. Be an artist and animator. Better said would be an artist involved in animation. I also must say that illustration is my key interest, I would like to illustrate children's books. Illustration and animation kinda fall in the same category in my mind.
Favorite song at the moment: whoa, hard. I'm listening a lot to Pandora. Brandi Carlisle is still up there as a favorite performer, Fine Frenzy too. Decemberists and Hot Hot Heat when I'm feeling dark.
Favorite color: indigo blue
Favorite drink: V8 splash with a splash of rum or vodka, lots of ice, and a blender.
Think that's it for now.
