I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since I posted here. I have been designing websites for over 20 years, and blogging for almost as long (although it wasn’t called blogging back then, and I just had an online journal I typed into a template I had made and create a new HTML file for each entry), and every time I start a new project, something prevents me from maintaining it. In this case, it was changing jobs. (Which, admittedly, has led me to my current job, which I absolutely love and am beyond grateful to have. Knock on wood, break a wishbone, chew a four leaf clover?)

This past year has been incredibly, wonderfully busy. My primary job takes up most of my job, I have a small acting job (so to speak) on the side, and the rest of my time is spent with friends, family, on adventures, binge watching TV, and trying to get my ideas down on paper and actually done.

I will write more about some of these, but here are a few things I’ve done this past year:

  1. Bought a new car. Finally. The old one finally gave out, and I bought a brand new, mint-colored Chevy Spark.
  2. Set a goal not to date for a year in order to work on myself. I’ll write an entry about this later, but I decided last year not to date or join any dating websites the entire time I was 34. I did it, and I’m at such a better place mentally now.
  3. Dyed my hair pink. Then pink and purple. It was something I had wanted to do again since I was 16, and I finally have a job where I can.
  4. Flew on a plane. Those of you who know me know that I have a terrible fear of flying and hadn’t flown since 2009. I went on a work trip, had massive panic attacks while clinging to my coworker, and am so glad I did it. And am excited to fly again!
  5. Saw my favorite band for the first time in ten years. Out of town. By myself. As someone with anxiety, it was a big deal, but seeing Alkaline Trio again was so totally worth it!
  6. Started drawing and painting again. I used to love to create art as a teenager, but gave it up over the years, mostly due to depression. A few months ago, I had to desire to draw one night, so I bought a bunch of art supplies, and now I try to draw or paint every night. It’s been incredibly cathartic.

So here’s the part where I tell you I will try to start posting again, and who knows? Maybe it will happen!

    • Festive af last night. Second picture was, uh, several drinks in at a Christmas party.

    • My coworker said I looked like a rich bitch after I put on my coat, but my outfit is totally Target except for my boots. But if you pronounce it “Tar-jay,” we can pretend I paid hundreds of dollars for this look.

    • My first Christmas in my apartment (2016) vs this year. Still don’t think I have enough decorations though.

    • These past two, three months have been a journey for me. I try to be honest about my struggles with mental illness, but I have gone through some things lately that I felt were going to break me. I feel like I have finally come out of the other side, and I feel stronger than I have in many years. Guys, don’t be afraid to ask for help if you are struggling. There is no reason to waste your time on Earth hurting. You deserve to be happy.

    • I promise I’ll post some actual content soon. Life has been insane the past couple months. In the mean time, here is a picture of @buzzcocked and I from the Memphis Flyer. I promise we were not drunk (yet).

    • Waiting to put up most of my Christmas decorations, but started on this little village.

    • Making meatloaf, drinking pumpkin beer, and getting ready to watch a spooky movie. It’s the most wonderful time of the year! 🎃👻💀🍁🍂

    • Put a combination of @joico ruby red and amethyst over my faded amethyst, and I kind of love the results! It’s red-violet, burgundy, bright conglomeration of color. (Also, I bought these glasses thinking they were very Jackie O, but I feel more Willy Wonka in them. 🤷🏻‍♀️)

    • Okay, so clearly I need to clean my mirror/room/life, and I’m hiding my face because makeup didn’t happen today, but I ended up accidentally wearing the cutest outfit today because I ran out of black clothes except this dress, and I ran into Target and bought sparkly leggings and booties and, whoops, cute outfit. I’ll get a better pic of the leggings and booties tomorrow.

    • I’m tired of the purple, but I’m not really sure what color to do next. Part of me wants to go back to brunette, but I know I’ll get bored. 😂
