The Daily 17/12/16;
This year is getting closer to an end. I won’t lie, I am pretty excited about starting a new chapter. My attempt to self motivate this year has fallen flat on its face. I have not gotten anywhere with any of my goals or plans.2017 will be a chance to put these plans somewhere other than my head.
The first stop was of course at the store. Shopping. I purchased some pretty file folders, a new mousepad, and a couple hanging baskets from the thrift store and a big box. These items will enhance my workspace, which these days I am spending so much time in. As well I have been fashioning some shelves from paper mache to try to maximize and organize this area. The toughest decision right now is choosing a color scheme. I think it will be based in metallics. But also a good garden space.
Gloria are you making any new years resolutions this year? I really think I should strive to enter a time of a low consumer profile. Paris is pretty much off the table. I have too much to attend to in my own backyard, literally. A list of home repair and financial repair. And since I have committed to the paper mache thug life it is conceivably possible this could be actually possible.
It always sounds exciting to make plans and dreams at the start of a new year. But certainly is much harder to implement these lofty ideas and get down to business. A few years ago I entered into a 365 project where every day for a whole year I needed to finish an art project. It was a challenge but I met it. And more recently I went back to school while working and met that challenge. Each step is a year long commitment and while difficult, it is rewarding. I suppose 2017 will be time to make another year commitment to myself.
But first, I must go switch my midnight laundry load and get some more sleep before work tomorrow. I need to be well rested, I have a lot of planning to start tomorrow. -Toodles
